  1. CrossCORE: Cross-Context Ontology Reasoning Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A10092

    Advanced Army C2 technologies are becoming ever more present in today’s wars, enabling Commanders at all levels to have a greater understanding of the battlefield. However, current C2 technology does not actively measure, define, or represent the Commander’s “contextual framework”, which can lead to a failure by Commanders and supporting teams to retain important contextual information ove ...

  2. MMF&EFM: an innovative science-based methodology for modeling and simulating Composite Materials for Durability

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: A09197

    Conventional damage tolerance assessments of metallic structures based on crack growth generally do not apply to composites. The current practice of residual strength assessment based on small BVID (barely visible impact damage) and large CDT (critical damage threshold) damage is known to increase service repair costs of thin composite honeycomb panels. There is, therefore, a need to develop bette ...

  3. Advanced Aerogel Composites for Low Signature Base Camp Shelters

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: A10109

    Base camps require reduction in heat signature to maintain low-observable capabilities. Both warfighters and sustainment forces within the base camps generate characteristic heat signatures that can reveal the location, presence of personnel and electronic equipment, and may provide some indication of activities and OPTEMPO. Aspen Aerogels, with partner Qinetiq North America, proposes to develop ...

  4. Thermoelectric-Powered Field Kitchen Appliances

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09162

    Cooking appliances in U.S. Army field kitchens are currently heated by burning JP-8 fuel using electrically powered burners. Power is supplied by a separate JP-8 fired generator that serves multiple appliances simultaneously. This is inefficient, as generators are only 20-25% efficient, and unreliable since failure of the generator results in the failure of the entire kitchen operation. This is a ...

  5. Intelligent Human Motion Classification and Quantification

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A10093

    US soldiers increasingly have the need to operate in GPS-denied environments or in environments without access to GPS, such as caves and indoor buildings. To date, inertial integration and pedometry have been used for position estimation in such environments. The inertial integration process suffers from excessive velocity drift over time and leads to errors in position estimation. Pedometry avoi ...

  6. Noninvasive CO2 Sensor for Controlling Ventilation of Combat Casualties

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A09159

    Polestar Technologies, Inc. proposes a Phase I SBIR project for the development of a new transcutaneous CO2 sensor to address the need for a noninvasive sensor that is capable of providing reads with the accuracy required for controlling mechanical ventilation during ambulatory care. The new sensor is designed to provide significantly faster response times compared with existing transcutaneous sen ...

  7. New Electrolytes for Rechargeable Lithium-Air Battery with Increased Cycle Life for Silent Watch Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A10139

    The army requires substantial improvements in battery energy density compared to current lithium-ion and lead acid batteries. The lightweight lithium-air battery has the potential to meet these needs, provided certain material characteristics can be improved, including extended lithium rechargeability, electrolyte stability, decreased air cathode polarization and stable performance at elevated ce ...

  8. Stand-off Detection of Chemical, Biological and Explosive Material Surface Contamination by Thermal Emission

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09100

    In this proposal, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) outlines the development of a system for stand-off detection of chemical and biological warfare agents and explosive (CBE) materials on surfaces. The system includes an illumination source to heat and desorb thermolysis products of contaminants from the surface and a fast spectrometer to collect the resulting thermal emission signature. The identity o ...

  9. Solid State Transcutaneous Carbon Dioxide Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A09159

    The United States Army (The Army) has identified the need for a device that can accurately and non-invasively measure the partial pressure carbon dioxide (PCO2) that is suitable for use in combat casualties who have hypovolemic shock, acute lung injury, massive resuscitation, and other factors that alter the exhaled or end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2)-PCO2 relationship. Based on these considerations, Giner, ...

  10. Ultra-Compact Advanced Micro Pulsed Plasma Thruster for CubeSats

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: A10031

    Busek Co. Inc. proposes to develop a compact fully integrated primary and ACS propulsion system for CubeSats. The propulsion system will fit into 1/2U and will deliver 100m/s deltaV to a 3U CubeSat. It is based on the on-orbit proven microPPT architecture, which is an electromagnetic thruster that has no moving parts and delivers thrust by accelerating Teflon vapor plasma by Lorentz force. The ...
