  1. Development of Methods and concepts for Reducing Munitions Vulnerability to EMI and EMPe Batteries for Munitions and Weapon Platform


    EMI vulnerability is a broad topic.This proposal focuses on one key element common to all advanced military devices - the energy storage element.While there has been extensive study on electronic devices, there has been little study of the effect of EMI on batteries or super-capacitors.If the battery destructs, it does not matter if the electronics survive.This study will determine the vulnerabili ...

  2. Increased Capacity Retention of Silicon Anodes for Lithium Batteries


    This proposal offers a new approach to stabilizing the very high capacity Si to use for lithium ion anodes - the use of a LiSi alloy rather than only Si. By starting with a silicon alloy instead of pure silicon, the initial structure is already in a stable expanded state. Mathematically stresses encountered on charging and discharging are reduced when the silicon is partially lithiated. It has bee ...

  3. Novel Reserve Power System with High-Power On-Demand Capability


    The concept here is to modify a lithium air battery to use as a reserve battery.A lithium air battery can be made into a reserve battery by hermetically sealing the cell (specifically the cathode) from the air.Without oxygen, the discharge cannot proceed.This is a disruptive technology. This novel approach offers several very significant advantages:First, lithium-air offers the highest specific en ...

  4. Radio Direction Finding Obfuscation

    SBC: Aspen Consulting Group Inc            Topic: A18109

    The proliferation of low-cost and highly capable Software Defined Radios (SDR) makes it difficult for the soldier to keep his/her communications systems secure from adversary SIGINT systems that can find, fix and finish radio frequency emitters. Radio communication systems that were not designed with this level of threat in mind are susceptible to exploitation, specifically in the area of geolocat ...

  5. Medical Sensors Powered by Human Generated Energy

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18061

    To meet the demands of the A18-061 SBIR solicitation ("Medical Sensors Powered by Human Generated Energy"), MaXentric proposes an energy harvesting system that generates power directly from the users' body. This harvesting system, when integrated with a sensor patch, results in a system with greatly extended continuous use time allowing for application in "prolonged field care" scenarios. The enti ...

  6. Ultra-Fast Photon-Sensing Integrated Circuit (PSIC) Small Arms Projectile Imager

    SBC: Wavefront Vision Inc            Topic: A17128

    Small arms round counting, strike detection, projectile trajectory mapping, infrared and visible muzzle flash sensing, and projectile velocity spectrum (subsonic to supersonic) analysis requires a highly accurate sensor capable of locating within one half caliber in strike location detection, and without missed event in iteration counting. We propose our ultra-fast Photon-Sensing Integrated Circui ...

  8. Innovative Bridge Launch Linkage Assembly


    The US Army currently uses the Armored Vehicle-Launched Bridge (AVLB) to temporarily span gaps in the terrain such as rivers, ravines or replace blown-up bridges. The launch system utilizes an in-bridge hydraulic cylinder and cable-pulley system to deploy and retrieve the 63-foot-long scissor type bridge. This hydraulic cylinder and cable- pulley system is bulky, heavy and adds significant load to ...

  9. Coordination and Cooperation in Ad-Hoc Networks in Congested and Contested Environments

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18051

    There is a definite need for tactical ad-hoc networks to understand to which degree communications can still occur in congested and contested environments where power sources are short-lived, the spectrum is limited and where jamming (both friendly and adversarial) can occur spontaneously and without warning. In this situation, network nodes will need to cooperate and coordinate negotiate ways for ...

  10. An Adaptively Covert, High Capacity RF Communications / Control Link

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18025

    The solicitation seeks to develop and demonstrate a covert solution for high bandwidth link capacity for agile, airborne platforms through dynamic beam adjustment, and frequency mobility along the 60GHz oxygen absorption line. MaXentric has teamed up with FIU to develop an innovative, efficient, and scalable architecture, which combines a novel wideband phased array antenna design, with an efficie ...
