  1. Phase Change Material Thermal Energy Storage (PCM-TES) for ECU Efficiency Improvement


    This proposal presents an hourly thermal load analysis for shelters cooled by 9,000 and 18,000 Btu/hr environmental control units (ECUs). This model suggests a highly variable heat load throughout a standard hot-dry day that can vary by a factor of 20 from the lowest to highest thermal load. This scenario is ideal for load shifting and consumption reduction through thermal energy storage (TES). In ...

  2. Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: A12038

    In the first phase of this program Plasmonics was able to make a breadboard profile sensor using COTS optics and a pyroelectric-linear-detector array that was able to detect a human by subtending greater than 16 pixels across the target at a range of up to 75 m. Based on work in Phase I, it was concluded that the design of existing COTS linear-detector arrays was insufficient to achieve a range of ...

  3. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. During the Phase I effort, Bridger demonstrated that their 3D imaging system architecture was ideally suited for seamless integration of high ...

  4. High Capacity Materials and Advanced Engineering for Thermal Batteries

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: A14009

    Thermal batteries are mission critical components which provide power to military weapon systems for electronics, fusing, sensing and actuation. Current and future thermal battery packaging and performance requirements are being pushed to the limits, demanding a substantial increase in potential and energy density over current state-of-the-art. Critical changes being implemented in next generatio ...

  5. Universal Software Assured Position, Navigation and Timing (USAPNT) Receiver

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: A14020

    We propose to develop a universal software assured position, navigation and timing (USAPNT) receiver, implement the design on an existing testbed, and field-test the system in Phase I. The existing testbed has two units, each containing 7 synchronous and coherent radio channels (a combination of 14) that can be software-programmed on the fly to acquire and track all GNSS signals and signals of opp ...

  6. High Voltage Pulse Forming Network (PFN) Capacitor

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: A14063

    Advanced pulsed power capacitors with energy densities of above 10 J/cc and high breakdown strength are required for the military of the future.While polymers such as BOPP and PET offer excellent loss characteristics, their low energy density has led to a search for alternative polymer dielectrics that can provide greater energy in a smaller package.Polyvinylidene fluoride and its co- and ter- pol ...

  7. Flexible, Compact Acoustic Transducer Arrays

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A12086

    For military applications, acoustic arrays can provide target signatures and locations of aircrafts, vehicles, weapons and personnel. Additional benefits of arrays include immunity to jamming, low cost, low weight and low power consumption. Acoustic beamforming using conventional arrays typically require 10~100s of microphones and have an aperture size ranging from several inches to several feet ...

  8. The Most Efficient (TME) Cold Chain Container for Blood

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A12113

    Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a novel cold chain system with a Lifetime Warranty (20+ years) for the vacuum container.The container is composed of a passive energy efficient system for transporting blood and pharmaceuticals in hostile environments for up to three days.Capacity is four unit blood transfusion bags.Energy efficiency is possible by the novel shape and super insulating qualit ...

  9. REFRACT: A Redaction Filtering Access Control Framework

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: A14040

    Rapid, reliable and secure information sharing is critical for achieving better awareness and access to actionable intelligence. The Distributed Common Ground System-Army (DCGS-A) is exposing ever greater volumes of information via the DCGS Integration Backbone (DIB) through web services. Intelligence Community (IC) Directives mandate access to such intelligence information sharing is done secur ...

  10. Printed Low Voltage Munition Ignition Bridge

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: A14059

    Initiators are used in Electro-explosive devices (EEDs) and must ensure the energetic device is not activated by accident and it must activate with guaranteed success when triggered. There are a number of initiator designs but the printed ignition bridge that has been demonstrated by the Army has potential to meet the safety and security criteria but also do this at a reduced cost. This proposed ...
