  1. Low Rolling Resistant Materials for Fuel Efficient Military Tires

    SBC: VORBECK MATERIALS CORP.            Topic: A13067

    Substitution of standard military tires for low rolling resistance tires have yielded 7% fuel costs savings on Army demonstrator vehicles. However, tire changes to improve rolling resistance affect other areas of tire performance. A tire is a composite structure made up of different rubber compounds that contain reinforcing fillers, and the fillers have important effect on the tires final perfor ...

  2. Advanced Electromagnetic Warhead for C-RAM

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: A13054

    This research considers combinations of emerging technologies to provide an advanced warhead to be used in a C-RAM role. The warhead is used as a counter measure to attack and detonate incoming mortar rounds at safe distance from friendly troops. The warhead produces enhanced blast waves of such level that incapacitates the mortar during its flight. Highly energetic blast waves are generated from ...

  3. Intelligent Charge Control System w/Anti-Idle to Minimize Fuel Consumption

    SBC: Techno-Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A13051

    Fuel is the second-highest battlefield throughput commodity behind water. In fact, ~65% of the fuel consumed in the theatre is for fuel transportation to the battlefield. To improve the fuel consumption and the quantity of forward-deployed fuel, Techno-Sciences, Inc. (TSi) proposes innovative, open architecture software that implements optimal hybrid control algorithms for intelligent power manage ...

  5. Smartphone-based Infrastructure-less Ranging in tactical edge networks

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A13033

    Modern position and navigation systems rely heavily on the Global Positioning System (GPS). However, position information may not be accurate or available when soldiers are operating in environments where GPS is denied, degraded, or unavailable. On the other hand, Smartphones have various powerful features such as low cost, maturity, familiarity of use, and readiness for advanced commercial commun ...

  6. Programmable Disassembler and Reassembler (PDR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A13030

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. proposes a novel state of the art Programmable Disassembler and Reassembler (PDR) system. The PDR enables utilization of unused spectral bandwidth by distributing bandwidth over multiple frequencies/paths and then reassembling at the destination with little bandwidth cost. A multilayered protection in reassembly process stops incorrectly reassembling data in the pres ...

  7. High Bandwidth, Compact, Wireless, Millimeter Wave Intra-Missile Datalink


    TSC is developing a intra-missile datalink that allows for high bandwidth (>2Gb/s) multi-mode, missile sensor data to be passed to the sensor data processor to minimize the use of cabling. This removes the issues caused by the cabling, such as integration time, cable volume and weight and gimbal sticktion. The developed concept will be ruggedized for missile applications and designed with low size ...
