  1. Low Energy Consumption Compact Control Actuation Systems for Precision Guided Artillery and Mortar Munitions

    SBC: Custom Analytical Engineering Systems, I            Topic: A13013

    Pyrotechnics offer a novel low energy Control Actuation System (CAS) approach reducing limitations associated with typical electro-mechanical CAS. With 2.5 to 3 times more usable energy stored per unit volume and more importantly a power density that is orders of magnitude greater than that of a comparable electromechanical device, a pyrotechnically driven CAS potentially requires less total volum ...

  2. Determination of Terrain Ponding for Logistics Emplacement and Planning

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: A13019

    Accounting for the impacts of terrain and weather is key to identifying potential Courses of Action that mitigate their effects. TSC and CSU propose a convergence of technologies 1) CSU"s prototype engine for estimating locations prone to water ponding, 2) the Army Research Laboratory"s My Weather Impacts Decision Aid (MyWIDA) which already produces weather impact maps and 3) TSC"Petroleum and ...

  3. Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation: From Landmarks via Bearing to Controls

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT030

    The proposed Bio-Inspired Visual Navigation System will enable UGVs to operate semi-autonomously with minimal input from an operator even in degraded communication environments. Semi-autonomous landmark-based navigation in low-texture indoor environments is difficult due to the lack of distinctive micro-features needed by conventional algorithms such as SIFT and SURF. In Phase I, Intelligent Aut ...

  4. Helicopter Hostile Fire Indicator (HFI) Sensor Development

    SBC: Syntonics LLC            Topic: A12035

    Syntonics has demonstrated the feasibility of the Staring Projectile Detection Radar (SPiDR). SPiDR is a stealthy, ultra wideband (UWB) noise radar system. In Phase II we will design and fabricate a multi-channel SPiDR prototype system with detection range of at least 100-m (300-m objective). Progressively realistic laboratory and live fire tests are performed with various projectiles to evaluate ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Personalized Driving Data for Insurance Discounts & Public Benefits

    SBC: AGNIK LLC            Topic: 141FH2

    This proposal suggests research on developing the next generation of consumer experience for Usage Based Insurance (UBI) in an increasingly socially connected world while addressing the need to protect privacy. It will enhance Agnik’s current consumer and UBI products through the following innovations:  Collective Incentives and Game Theory: Explore the problem of risk modeling and underwriti ...

  8. Affliation Strength/Risk Model Development for Motor Carrier Succession

    SBC: Integrated Technology Solutions Inc.            Topic: 132FM1

    The vetting process, at FMCSA, is used to identify new entrant carriers with an affiliation to existing or defunct carriers which had safety fitness issues (chameleon or reincarnated carriers). Currently, the vetting process uses only data available within FMCSA. The current vetting process is staff intensive and costly. The goals of Phase 1 are to discover externally available: Data and tools tha ...

  9. Low Profile Microwave Radar and WiFi Sensors for Visually Unobtrusive Vehicle Detection and Travel Time Monitoring

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 141FH5

    The major concern of National Park Service (NPS) is that the traffic sensors must be visually unobtrusive for minimizing the impact on viewsheds or the disturbance of the historical, cultural landscape. We propose an innovative visually unobtrusive vehicle detection and travel time monitoring system to provide high quality traffic and travel time information. The system is low cost, stand-alone, l ...

  10. Robotic Utility Mapping and Installation System (RUMI)

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: 141FH3

    There is a need to develop new technologies that will robotically relocate existing overhead utilities to the subsurface within crowded rights-of-way in an accurate and safe manner, at an acceptable cost to the project’s owner, using construction methods such as Horizontal Directional Drilling (HDD). Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI), in collaboration with The Louisiana Tech Trenchless Technolo ...
