  1. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include simulants of chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals, selected for their relevance to ...

  2. Alternative Source for Neutron Generation

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: A12088

    Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) will perform a comprehensive analysis of all existing and proposed neutron generator technologies that do not utilize highly enriched fissile material. These technologies include the flux compression generator, dense plasma focus, high current deuterium-tritium fusion, and high current electrons incident upon uranium-238. Other technologies will also be identified and ...

  3. The Most Efficient (TME) Cold Chain Container for Blood

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A123113

    Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a novel cold chain system with a Lifetime Warranty for the vacuum container. The container composes a passive energy efficient system for transporting blood and pharmaceuticals in hostile environments for up to three days. Capacity is four 500 ml liter blood transfusion bags. Energy efficiency is possible by the novel shape and super insulating qualities ...

  4. ACCESS: Language Arts

    SBC: Attainment Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The project team is developing a prototype of an application (app) for a tablet computer called Access: Language Arts. The app will support middle school students with significant learning disabilities in meeting Common Core State Standards in English Language Arts. The intervention will be designed to supplement classroom lessons and will emphasize skills including vocabulary, communication, gram ...

  5. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. Bridger Photonics Inc. proposes to develop a dual-mode laser system capable of performing laser radar imaging as well as high speed free-spa ...

  6. Instrument for Measuring Millimeter-Wave Polarimetric Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: A123105

    The proposal will perform study and design of a gonioreflectometer or equivalent instrument that can measure Polarimetric Bidirectional Reflectance Distribution Function (PBRDF) in the millimeter wave (mmW) spectrum using heterodyne transmit/receive (Tx/Rx) radar technology. The instrument will be used to coherently measure amplitude and phase information and construct a BRDF with user-specified ...

  7. High-flux electronically generated thermal neutron source for radiographic applications

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: A07040

    An innovative approach to generating a high thermal neutron flux (108 n/cm2/s) at a distance of 1 m from the source via D-T nuclear fusion reactions is proposed. By making use of Inertial Electrostatic Confinement (IEC) technology, which creates reactions between a re-circulating ion beam and a gas target, the limitations on lifetime of fusion sources that use solid targets can be overcome, while ...

  8. Optimal Fuel Gel Formulations

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: A07027

    Propellant gels offer a promising way to simultaneously increase safety of operations and enhance performance. Gel viscoelastic properties minimize leaking and slosh during storage yet allow flow on demand. Use of energetic gellants can increase density specific impulse performance. Clever formulation of propellant gels based on sol-gel science can optimize gel properties. The proposed work wi ...

  9. Control Strategies for Advanced Military Diesel Engines

    SBC: WISCONSIN ENGINE RESEARCH CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: A07175

    The objective of this proposal is to optimize the combustion system for a high output military diesel engine to substantially increase engine power density (>100 bhp/l), improve fuel economy (> 40% efficiency at best point), and reduce specific heat rejection (

  10. Environmental Sensor for Autonomous UAVS

    SBC: Anasphere, Inc            Topic: A07003

    Improved observations of the battlespace are of key and growing importance in today’s combat environment. UAVs are making key contributions in this area, and sensor improvements are a key part of increasing UAV capabilities. However, all sensors are subject to degradation under detrimental environmental conditions. Adding a sensor system to UAVs that enables the in-situ identification and qua ...
