  1. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  4. Training Tools to Improve the Teaching and Coaching Skills of Military Advisors

    SBC: eCrossCulture            Topic: A08T003

    We propose to develop and evaluate an innovative training system for improving military advisors’ ability to teach and coach their host nation counterparts from a different country. Our effort will involve a comprehensive literature review, inclusion of an expert in cross-cultural training, interviews with SMEs, experts in the field, advisors, and host-national who have received US military adv ...

  5. Dilution refrigerator technology for scalable quantum computing

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08T020

    Develop a Pulse Tube Cooler (PTC) driven Dilution Refrigerator (DR) to provide for cryogen free, rapid turn-around for operating large number of qubits. This effort will incorporate low vibration features, high-density and high-speed wiring technology. The proposed system will require no liquid helium, thereby avoiding the cost and availability issues.

  6. Vegetable Oil Conditioning for Combustion

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A08T030

    The development of a straight vegetable oil (SVO) blending technology for combustion in boilers and in diesel engines is proposed. The overall objective of the proposal is to address the problems associated with using SVO as fuel; such as high viscosity, poor low temperature flow behavior, fuel inject and combustion chamber carbon deposition and engine power loss due to long term use. Vegetable oi ...

  7. Eye-safe Optically-Pumped Gas-filled Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: A08T021

    An eye-safe optically-pumped laser based on a gas-filled hollow optical fiber is proposed. Such a laser will be the first in a new class of lasers, based on gas-filled fibers and incorporating many advantages of optically-pumped gas lasers, including the ability to use multiple incoherent pump sources to result in a single coherent beam. We will model the lasing action in acetylene gas pumped a ...

  8. Breathable Elastomer Membrane for Chemical Agent Protection

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A08T015

    Defense against chemical weapons is a critical DoD requirement. An effective defense requires the development of unique clothing systems that are a physical barrier to toxic vapors, liquids, and aerosols. In addition, the protective material must be permeable to water to reduce incapacitating heat stress, and must be lightweight, flexible, and cost effective. High barrier materials currently in us ...

  9. A MEMS Pulsed Injection Electrostatic Atomizer for Small Engines

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A08T012

    The Army needs energy dense, portable power generation and propulsion units. In order to reduce the consumables and simplify logistics, very small engines (defined as a power rating of less than 5 hP) need to be fueled with readily available logistic fuels, such as JP-8 and diesel. Unfortunately, these fuels are extremely difficult to vaporize and burn, which has hindered their use in spark igni ...
