  1. Phase Change Thermal Buffers for Environmental Control Unit Efficiency Improvement

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: OSD13EP1

    Aqwest LLC proposes to develop a phase change material (PCM)-based thermal energy storage (TES) to enable"rightsizing"of environmental control units (ECU) and improve overall efficiency through reduced peak loads, more stabilized ECU operation, and off-peak thermal energy storage. The Aqwest TES has a very simple construction and mode of operation while offering major savings in energy consumptio ...

  2. Embedded Co-Located Antenna Elements to Increase Pattern Coverage and Effectively Mitigating Interference for Improved Communications

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A12046

    The future net-centric military provides enhanced battlefield awareness through wireless links between unmanned aerial vehicles, high-speed aircraft, rotary-winged platforms, and soldiers on the ground. To support this, platforms must accommodate a variety of antennas, not to mention traditional payloads such as sensors, fuel, weapons, and personnel. The integration of antennas on rotary-winged pl ...

  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. Innovative Solutions for Propellant Temperature Sensing for Future Munitions

    SBC: PHASE IV ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A12056

    In this project a Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) temperature tag and reader system will be developed. The tag will be easily applied to large caliber ammunition such as artillery propellant. Readers will be attached to guns or be located in handling areas. When the propellant is passed near the reader, an accurate temperature will be read and passed in real time to the fire control system.

  5. Paint Additive for Early Detection of Corrosion

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A14003

    The corrosion of military equipment and facilities is a significant and ongoing problem. In total, corrosion cost the Department of Defense $23 billion annually and is the number one cost driver in military life-cycle costs. The effective monitoring of aircraft structural health is essential to maintaining safe operation, particularly as aircraft are retained for ever longer service periods. The ...

  6. A Real-Time, Non-Invasive Monitoring System to Guide Accurate Fluid Resuscitation of Combat Casualties During Pre-Hospital and Transport Medical Care

    SBC: Flashback Technologies Inc            Topic: A12109

    Trauma related hemorrhage is a leading cause of preventable death on the battlefield. This project addresses the problem of monitoring and guidance for optimal fluid resuscitation for hemorrhage in pre-hospital and transport settings. The proposed Phase II work will deliver a CipherOx Resuscitation Monitor (CRM) ready for clinical trials for an FDA 510K submission. The CRM is a noninvasive, small, ...

  7. A Wireless Sensor to Monitor Generator Control Unit and Main Power Relay Health

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: A13023

    Sporian proposes to develop a wireless sensor suite for rotorcraft Generator Control Unit (GCU) and Main Power Relay (MPR) health monitoring. This sensor suite will monitor the GCU for changes in component characteristics (e.g. resistance of relay contacts), temperature, vibration extremes, voltage surges, and other factors that will indicate the unit is close to the end of its serviceably life. ...

  8. Digital Storyteller: A Cognitively Accessible Literary Compositioning Tool


    Students and adults with intellectual and other cognitive disabilities have a critical need for accessible technologies that can enable them to speak for themselves in all arenas of life, including academic settings, vocational settings, for leisure activities and for therapeutic purposes. There are, however, a significant number of people in the U.S. whose literacy deficits effectively prohibit o ...

  9. Mobile Connect: A Cloud-based, Universally Designed Text Messaging and Email Program to Facilitate Social Connectedness and Community Inclusion for Individuals with Intellectual Disabilities


    Efforts to increase independence and enhance quality of life for individuals with intellectual disabilities (ID) have been increasing throughout American society. As this population continues to make strides in achieving greater independence and access to the community, there is an increasing need for remote communication, e.g. “I made it to work OK” or “I just took my medication.” Smartph ...
