  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. Knowledge-aided Interface for Big Data Streams

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD13LD2

    Soldiers at the tactical edge of today"s military operations have information requirements that are not met by current ISR systems. They need to make quick decisions while interacting in densely populated environments comprised of friendly, hostile, and neutral host nation locals. Enabled by ubiquitous mobile devices, social media has emerged as the local populace"s dominant form of communication. ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  9. Secure DIB 1.3 Query Service for Redaction and Fine Grained Access Control

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A14040

    The inability to effectively share intelligence products is at best hindering warfighter ability and at worst unnecessarily putting them in harms way. DCGS-A intelligence producing nodes must be able to securely and seamlessly share intelligence with Special Operation Forces and across security enclaves. ISR products containing actionable intelligence are isolated preventing others from making e ...

  10. 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 ...
