  1. Innovative Marking Technology for Hand Grenades


    The MK3A2 offensive hand grenade has been out of commission since 1975, leaving warfighters with stun (flash) and fragmentation grenades, which do not have the level of lethality for incapacitating enemy combatants. Efforts have been in the forefront to develop an optimized replacement. The objective of the Topic A181-077 SBIR program is to develop a novel and innovative technology that produces d ...

  2. RIVER:A Robust, Innovative Video EncodeR

    SBC: The Design Knowledge Company            Topic: A18125

    Army missions require robust, error-free transmission of video data without network errors.In compressed data, such as with H.264 or H.265 compressors, small bit errors can obliterate large portions of the de-compressed image, or render it un-compressible at all, depending upon where in the compressed data the errors occur.Dropped packets may obliterate frames containing significant mission-critic ...

  3. High Temperature Polymers for 3D Printed Injection Molding Tooling

    SBC: IC3D LLC            Topic: A18140

    The repair and rebuilding of injection molded parts is an important activity at army depots. The unit cost to make small batch parts is quite expensive due to the high cost and long lead time for injection molds for tooling. Fused Filament Fabrication AM offers a viable alternative to reduce tooling costs and lead time, however most AM thermoplastics do not meet the stringent requirements of high- ...

  4. OpioAlert for real time monitoring of opioid intoxication in far-forward deployed soldiers.

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A18142

    Opioids are a class of potent analgesics used for both pain relief and their euphoric effects. The range of effective doses stretches across multiple orders of magnitude, down to micrograms per individual for a lethal dose. With such low doses causing significant intoxication, it is crucial to identify novel markers and means to monitor for opioid exposure both on the battlefield (opioid chemical ...

  5. Graphene-Enabled Long-Cycle-Life Lithium-Sulfur Batteries without Excess Lithium and Electrolyte

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A17050

    This proposal seeks to advance the next generation of portable energy storage by exploiting the high specific energy intrinsic to the Li-S system. While sulfurs low electrical conductivity and the inhibiting effects of polysulfide dissolution have historically impeded the commercialization of Li-S batteries, we propose to overcome these limitations via the utilization of graphene as a multifunctio ...

  6. Advanced Lithium Sulfur Battery

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A17050

    As tactical and deployed electrical power demands increase for soldiers, there is a commensurate need to increase the energy density of military batteries (i.e. man portable power) to ease the weight burden additional power capacity entails. Lithium-sulfur batteries, as replacement for current lithium ion batteries, are a promising advancement with theoretical specific energy of 2600Wh/kg and demo ...

  7. Non-toxic Hydrophobic Coatings for Improved Infrared and Red Phosphorus Obscurant Performance

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: A17057

    Powdermet proposes a program for the development of two hydrophobic coating processes to powders using its expertise in fluid bed chemical vapor deposition (FB-CVD).The coating by CVD of these polymers is already a well-established practice, but new to use in fluid bed particle coating, so the transition is perceived as low risk.The coated particles will then be analyzed and evaluated for their ab ...

  8. Unmanned CASEVAC Movement and Maneuver Controls

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A17066

    Rapid patient evacuation is critical to minimize injury or save the life of the warfighter. Unmanned air and ground vehicles (UAV/UGV) provide a solution to enable quick casualty evacuation (CASEVAC) leveraging multi-purpose vehicles such as cargo transport. However, unmanned systems were typically not designed for human transport and may potentially create physiological stresses that exceed that ...

  9. Measurement of Force in Personnel Parachute Risers

    SBC: D'Angelo Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17127

    Parachute designers and manufacturers have long sought to obtain force data exerted on parachute risers during the various stages of deployment and flight. This data can provide valuable insight to help evaluate service life, new parachute development, and aid in computer modeling of parachute systems. Current techniques for measuring riser force require significant modification of the risers by t ...

  10. Biomolecule concentration and preservation by hydrogel driven forward osmosis for improved serological detection

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A17131

    A rapid and accurate diagnosis of infectious diseases is essential to reducing lost duty days for U.S. Service Members and accurately tracking outbreaks. Patient samples frequently require cold storage during transport to a centralized diagnostic laboratory. During transport antigens and antibodies may be degraded by proteases present in specimen sample matrices and lead to a false-negative diagno ...
