  1. Improved Tele-Control for Manipulator Equipped Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09186

    Under the Phase I program, ASI will examine the available technologies for improving manipulation, create preliminary designs of how to integrate these technologies on current platforms (the Talon and Packbot), and simulate the effects of improved dynamic modeling and sensor feedback on manipulator performance. The deliverables for Phase I will thus be: • Preliminary design of retrofit packa ...

  2. Semi-Autonomous Manipulator Control Using 2D and 3D Scene Recognition

    SBC: Autonomous Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A09187

    Current mobile manipulators require extensive operator involvement to perform even simple tasks, such as opening a door, picking up an object, or emptying a container. “Fly-the-gripper” algorithms have been implemented to free the user from specifying joint velocities when a desired x, y, z gripper path is desired (Berkemeier, Poulson, et al. 2008), (Johnston, et al. 2008). Further, â ...

  4. Flat Panel Shelter-Mountable Phased Array Antenna for DoD Systems of Record

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: A09176

    The objective of this proposal is to develop innovative concept designs for flat-panel, low-profile, smallest possible aperture, phased-array GBS receive antennas in the 10.5 – 13.5 GHz Ku-band and 20.2 – 21.2 GHz K/Ka-band. Furthermore, the objectives include that the antenna be realized within a 40” cross section. Conventional array antenna designs to meet the G/T requirement ...

  5. Modular Perfusion Bioreactor for Tissue Engineering

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09H11

    This project will develop and demonstrate a prototype Modular Perfusion Bioreactor (MPB) for tissue engineering applications. While many unique styles of bioreactors have been proposed for various types of stem cell and tissue cultures, there is not a single, easy-to-use device that accommodates the multiple diverse needs of multiple tissue culture types.. In order to take advantage of recent ad ...

  6. Microfabricated Mass Spectrometer for Near Real-Time Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: TORION TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A09144

    A need for miniaturized mass spectrometer (MS) instrumentation exists for both stationary point monitoring and applications where instrument size is critical, including military swatch test monitoring of chemical agent permeation rates and field detection of chemical agents. A 50% size and weight reduction over current portable MS instrumentation through modern microfabrication techniques while ma ...

  7. 50- 100 Watt Wind Energy Harvesting in Light Tactical Applications

    SBC: Pine Ridge Products LLC            Topic: A09092

    Pine Ridge Products LLC will introduce a tactical micro wind turbine that is highly efficient, robust, easy to use, maintain and transport. The Army is requesting a renewable energy system to reduce the amount of fuel used for small power loads. A vehicle mounted, efficient wind turbine system would improve self sufficiency on site by decreasing the need for fossil fuels. This will increase reliab ...
