  1. On-board Smart Vision System to Support Vehicle-to-Infrastructure (V2I) Communication

    SBC: Connected Wise LLC            Topic: 180FH1

    Connected automated vehicle (CAV) technology has significant implications in terms of transportation system safety and efficiency. However, building and maintaining a wireless communication infrastructure (e.g. roadside units (RSUs), power, fiber optic lines etc.) across the U.S. is a challenging task. In urban areas, where vehicle population and vehicle-miles-traveled (VMT) are high, building suc ...

  2. Guided Augmented Independence Travel Aid (GAIT-Aid)

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: 180FT1

    Lack of transportation access affects approximately 30% of people with functional limitations. In fact, people with functional limitations experience transportation access barriers four times more than those without limitations. With the emerging market of low cost augmented and virtual reality technology, perceptual user interfaces (PUI) that interact more naturalistically with end-users are prov ...

  3. H.265 Video Encoding Analysis

    SBC: Fastvdo Llc            Topic: A18125

    FastVDO will develop a software testbed to simulate communications of full motion video over wireless links. In particular, FastVDO will study the effects of channel errors on the transmission of compressed video, specifically with H.264 and H.265 compression. The received video will be analyzed for quality using a variety of tools and metrics, and a quantitative analysis will be made of the error ...

  4. Common Track Protocol (CTP) Adaptive Translator Module

    SBC: Simtrs, "LLC"            Topic: A18128

    This proposal addresses the Program Executive Office for Missiles and Space (PEO M&S) need for an embeddable, extensible, modular, scalable and component-based Common Track Protocol (CTP) Adaptive Translator Module database and software that must account for different ways that track information from multiple Tactical Data Links (TDL) protocols are correlated, recorded and transmitted to end-users ...

  5. Power Conditioning Surge Module


    Standalone power systems and tactical microgrids are used by the Army to provide power to equipment used in theater. Unlike a full-scale power grid, Army tactical microgrids are powered by 60 kW generators. Because these generators are very small sources compared to those on a full-scale power grid, they are sensitive to power surges, inrush current, and current harmonics generated by non-linear l ...

  6. Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT)

    SBC: Dignitas Technologies, LLC            Topic: A19013

    We propose to research and develop Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT) as a flexible user interface capability within a generalized framework that can be applied to a wide variety of training instances. We plan to leverage our Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) toolset because it is a flexible, expandable, service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based system that provi ...

  7. High Brightness Long Wave Quantum Cascade Laser Development

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: A19051

    The development of pulsed Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) delivering pulse average optical power exceeding 10W in a nearly Gaussian output beam (M2 < 1.3) with wallplug efficiency exceeding 20% is proposed. Pulse width and duty cycle for fully packaged devices to be delivered to Army will be adjustable and their maximum values will exceed 700ns and 7%, respectively. The new ...

  8. Advanced Microscale Aluminum Heat Exchanger


    This proposal uses a novel architecture to build a heat exchanger that vehicle heat rejection by 5% while maintaining the same space claim and pressure drop as legacy systems. The novel design results in a substantial decrease in the pressure drop and an increase in thermal performance relative to state-of-the-art configurations. Conventional high volume component production methods will be combin ...

  9. Low Lubricity Fuel Tolerant High-Pressure Fuel Pump


    Military fuels such as JP-8, Jet A, and F-24 have lower lubrication properties than common diesel fuel. The direct injection fuel systems in vehicles designed to run on diesel can wear out prematurely due to lack of lubrication in these low lubricity fuel applications. The proposed solution minimizes component wear for selected vehicle applications.

  10. High-Speed Cryogenic Optical Connector for Focal Plane Array Read-out

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17022

    This proposal is to develop and implement a cryogenic optical data link into an infrared camera that includes a focal plane array. The cryogenic optical data link uses a specially designed laser that can achieve very low bit energy and very low optical loss in cryogenic environments. The laser is a vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) that is designed to reach high reliability and high e ...
