  1. Highly Efficient Engineered Obscurant Nanomaterials

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A12aT024

    Obscurant materials are used by the Army to protect both the soldier as well as military physical assets. Several obscuration systems have been developed over the years to defeat threats in all areas of the electromagnetic spectrum. Current obscurant materials typically consist of off-the-shelf or processed metal particles or flakes in which key properties such as particle size and aspect ratio ...

  2. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Recovery and re-use of Rhenium is of critical importance to the superalloy industry due to its limited availability and growing demand. The recycling loop in the superalloy industry is currently far less efficient.The proposal addresses the recovery of Rh

  3. Efficient, Environmentally-Compatible Recovery Technologies for Rhenium and Other Strategic Critical Materials

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Rhenium (Re) was the last natural element to be identified and is the rarest of metals. The most concentrated ore contains only about 1800 ppm Re. It has a very high melting point, which leads to uses in high temperature resistant applications like cataly

  4. Probiotics for Maintaining Dolphin (Tursiops truncatus) Health and the Readiness of the U.S. Navy"s Marine Mammal Systems

    SBC: Accacia International LLC            Topic: N13AT013

    Marine mammals like bottlenose dolphins are maintained by US Navy's Marine Mammal Program to protect harbors and detect underwater mines. The maintenance and betterment of health of these dolphins in captivity is a priority in order to improve the fitness and readiness of these animals for defense missions. Accacia International proposes to develop probiotic pharmaceuticals to treat and preve ...

  5. ADP: Autonomous Deep Perception

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N13AT016

    Autonomous systems acquire massive amounts of sensor and communications data over the course of their potentially lengthy missions. Ideally, such systems would incorporate current and historical data into their decision making processes to generalize from experience and avoid repetitive errors. However, the sheer quantity of data gathered can make storage and processing of an unfiltered data strea ...

  6. Metamaterial Enhanced Thermophotovoltaics

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N13AT017

    Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) energy conversion produces electrical power from heat energy using, in its most basic form, a thermal emitter and a photovoltaic converter. Since these systems typically have no or few moving parts, they provide a long term maintenance-free power generation. Key factors affecting performance include matching the emitter spectrum more precisely to the conversion characteris ...

  7. Wide Spectral Band Laser Threat Sensor

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N13AT027

    US troops and equipment are increasingly at risk for irradiation by lasers, whether it be from enemy targeting and ranging systems, designators, or high-energy lasers as weapons themselves. Countering the threat requires detection of the incident laser radiation, the direction from which it is originating, and characterization of its wavelength and temporal profile. Nanohmics Inc., in partnership ...

  8. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: Agnitron Technology            Topic: A13AT006

    This Phase I program is focused on enhancement of the performance of MgZnO based solar blind detectors. MgZnO alloys have superior optoelectronic properties with bandgaps suitable for solar blind detection. Issues related to doping and miscibility will be addressed. This will involve the use of advanced MOCVD and MBE growth techniques and consideration of both Schottky and p-n junction devices. No ...

  9. Maneuver Prediction and Avoidance Logic For Unmanned Aircraft System (UAS) Encounters with Non-Cooperative Air Traffic

    SBC: RDRTec Incorporated            Topic: N13AT003

    RDRTec Inc. and Lincoln Laboratory propose to establish the feasibility and develop the plan for an extensible analytic framework and methodology to address unanticipated maneuver encounter modeling, collision risk estimation, and ownship maneuver logic. With the widespread introduction of Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS), the nature of the airspace will change significantly over the next 10-20 yea ...

  10. Novel Primary Processing of Scarce Element Ores

    SBC: CHEMTOR, L.P.            Topic: OSD12T02

    The rare-earth elements (REEs) find uses in many high tech military applications, including night vision goggles, laser range finders, precision guided weapons, and stealth technology. Their high costs (up to $6800/lb. Scandium) are due to low concentration in ores and high cost of separation. Fourteen of the REEs are listed in a single box in the periodic table, meaning they all have almost iden ...
