  1. Antimicrobial Coatings for Medical Shelters

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A09168

    Approximately 2 million infections are acquired in hospitals annually with a major source of bacterial contamination being frequently touched common surfaces. This problem also exists for Combat Surgical Hospitals. Current anti-bacterial coatings are not suitable for these environments because of human toxicity, low activity, and/or poor adhesion. The goal of this project is to develop a low cost, ...

  2. Fatigue Life Modeling & Simulation of Elastomer-Polymer Materials


    High operating temperatures and harsh environments have caused a significant decrease in elastomeric material durability for military vehicles. ARDL will be using recent advances in material technology, testing methodology, processing, and design-analysis concepts to develop the material model and meet the project goal. Material choices and test designs will be established based on the requirement ...

  3. Nano-scale Silicon-Carbon Anodes for High Capacity Lithium Ion Batteries

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: A09175

    Equipment and ordnance in the Defense arsenal have become increasingly more sophisticated, ranging from complex electronic systems for surveillance, hybrid vehicles, portable soldier systems, unmanned aerospace and underwater vehicles, to directed energy weapons systems with high pulse power demand. These systems are increasingly more reliant on battery power having reduced operating cost and life ...

  4. Rechargeable, High Energy Density, Lithium-Air Batteries

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: A10139

    Many defense systems such as silent watch, soldier power, unmanned vehicles, communications equipment, and directed energy weapons require portable power which limits the duration and capability of missions relying upon these systems. The DoD is therefore seeking energy storage devices with higher energy densities to extend mission duration and capability. Of all battery technologies currently a ...

  5. Cross-compatible cartridge case for orthodox or rarefaction wave gun firing

    SBC: ARES, INC.            Topic: A10042

    RAVEN technology weapons vent a significant portion of the propellant gases rearward. Therefore the ammunition must allow the gun gases to leave the chamber at the proper time. This is in complete contrast to conventional weapons where the ammunition provides the breech seal during the entire ballistic cycle. As such, the technologies are incompatible and separate supply logistics must be main ...

  6. Next-Generation Aeromedical Spinal Stabilization System

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: OSD09H13

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to redefine the immobilization and evacuation of SCI and TBI patients by developing a new patient stabilization system for aeromedical transport. This revolutionary system will be capable of properly immobilizing patients in a multitude of transport configurations while reducing the dynamic effects from flight. CRG’s design will improve the patien ...

  7. Nanoinfusion Technology for Advanced Gun Propellants

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A09029

    It has been demonstrated on a small scale that nanoparticles have the potential to improve the performance of high energy density gun propellants. Nanomaterials such as Al, B, AlB, and BNNT have been integrated into gun propellants resulting in increased burning rates and efficiencies. However, significant technical challenges exist with this technology in process scalability, particle agglomerati ...

  8. Critical Fuze Technology Protection System

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A09035

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc (CRG) proposes to provide a complete cost-effective anti-tamper system to protect advanced ammunition projectiles from tamper and reverse-engineering efforts. CRG has participated in five AT-based Phase II and seven AT-based Phase I SBIR programs. These programs have produced multiple layers of AT solutions. These solutions consist of a high TRL 7/8 conformal coating ...

  9. Reactive Materials with Reduced Electrostatic Discharge Sensitivity

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A10049

    Advanced reactive materials (RM) with reduced electrostatic discharge (ESD) sensitivity are needed by the Army. Nanoscale thermite compositions are of particular interest because of the fast reaction rates and high flame temperatures generated during reaction. Unfortunately, in many cases, the materials are so reactive that they are impractical to work with. One route to improving ESD insensitivit ...

  10. Algorithmic Behavior Forecasting

    SBC: Edaptive Computing, Inc.            Topic: OSD09HS3

    In modern warfare, the ability for commanders to accurately forecast the behavior of a given population is essential for making high-quality decisions that can determine the success or failure of a mission. Anthropological experts can provide help to commanders in assessing certain situations and would-be effects of alternative actions, but such experts may not have enough up-to-date information, ...
