  1. Advanced and Additive Manufacturing of Nanostructured Ballistic Alloys


    There is an urgent need to improve protection of our soldiers without losing mobility and maneuverability. As personal protection equipment becomes more sophisticated and multifunctional for protection against ballistics, shrapnel, and stabbing, it has also become heavier and more cumbersome. This additional mass can inhibit troop movement and potentially compromise the mission and even survivabil ...

  2. Laser diode array with diffraction limited divergence

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: A16080

    The development of laser weapons has a profound impact on military missions throughout the services. An ideal laser system must be capable of delivering hundreds of kilowatts of average power to a target at multi-kilometer ranges through adverse atmospheric conditions. The highest power within diffraction limited divergence was demonstrated with solid state and fiber lasers. However, development o ...

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

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17022

    A cryogenic optical link is proposed for development that uses a VCSEL-based micro transmitter placed inside the cryostat, and transmitting through a dewar window to a detector-based micro receiver placed outside the dewar. Interconnection to focal plane readout circuit is proposed using an application specific integrated circuit to receive the read out data and electrically drive the VCSEL to tra ...

  5. Predictive Models of Lead Acid Battery State of Charge and Health


    Lead acid batteries are the old commercially available rechargeable battery technology. They find application in a range of vehicle starting applications as well as a wide array of deep cycle uses such as grid storage, backup power and deep cycle power on a range of commercial, utility, first responder, and military vehicles. Despite being around for over 100 years, there remains no good way of de ...

  7. Additive Manufacturing of Long Rod Penetrator Sabots using Carbon Nanotube Metal Matrix Composites

    SBC: Shepra INC            Topic: A17033

    Additive Manufacturing has the potential to dramatically reduce the weight and cost of long rod penetrator sabots if the right material systems can be utilized in manufacturing. While short fiber polymer composites offer significant weight and cost savings, they are limited in their maximum mechanical performance and cannot meet the specific stiffness and specific strength objectives of this progr ...

  8. Open-Architecture Optical Array Payload for SUAS with Optional LIDAR

    SBC: Prioria Robotics, Inc.            Topic: A17060

    The Army desires observations of an area over time in order to perform littoral terrain estimates, hydrodynamics estimation, and estimation of geological properties in turbid environments. Analysis options include 3-D terrain generation (structure-from-motion photogrammetry) and bathymetric processing (e.g. bathymetric inversion). The Army requires the data collection to be performed with a hand-l ...

  9. Mobile and Efficient Sanitation System (MESS)


    Field Sanitation Centers (FSCs), a critical element of Army mobile kitchens provide a method to wash, rinse, and sanitize kitchen wares in order to conduct field feeding operations. Their primary function is to clean cookware and dishes used during preparation of meals throughout the day. The current pack-off volume of the FSC-2 (the legacy FSC system which began deployment in 2006) is excessive a ...

  10. Validated Mathematical Model of Spatial Orientation (SO)


    The overall objective of this SBIR effort is to develop and verify an improved mathematical model of human gravito-inertial spatial orientation (SO) that estimates perceptions resulting from the integration of orientation/motion cues provided by visual, auditory, vestibular, and somatosensory senses, especially those cues existing in the aerospace environment. An advanced SO modeling system that i ...
