  1. Miniature Static-Dynamic Cylinder Pressure Sensor

    SBC: Optrand Incorporated            Topic: OSD13EP5

    It is proposed to develop a 2.2mm diameter fiber-optic based sensor that measures both static and dynamic components of the cylinder pressure up to 350 bars over the frequency range of 0Hz to 20 kHz, operates at tip temperatures up to 450oC, and has the service life up to 20 thousands hours or 5 Billion cycles. The miniature sensing head and signal conditioner enable sensor integration with a dies ...

  2. FieldOps: A Unified Approach to UGV Interface Design, Sensor Data Compression, and Supervisory Control Based on Fields of Safe Travel

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3


    SBIR Phase I 2014 Department of DefenseArmy

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A12073

    Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). Therefore, there exists a significant need to introduce vehicle stability enhancement technology to military vehicles. ...

  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. Ultra-Low Power Health Monitoring Sensor System

    SBC: EVIGIA SYSTEMS INC            Topic: A14006

    This proposed SBIR Phase I effort initiates development of an ultra-low power miniature light-weight high-functionality multi-sensor health monitoring system that meets the requirements for long term (10-20 years) health management and condition based maintenance of military ordnance and sensitive equipment, including advanced missiles and guided ordnance. This system integrates temperature, humi ...

  6. Development of Micro JP-8 Fuel Injection System for Small Unmanned Aerial and Ground Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A14019

    Baker Engineering (BEI) proposes continued development of the Miniature CI Fuel Injection System to fulfill the need for heavy fuel delivery in 3-70 Hp compression ignition engines. BEIs Phase 1 effort will focus on the systems most critical system element, the fuel injector nozzle. Specifically, nozzle design, predictive analysis and manufacturing research will be conducted to achieve the requi ...

  7. Precision In-Cylinder Pressure Sensor System for Heavy Duty Diesel Engines

    SBC: Naeim Henein            Topic: OSD13EP5

    The proposal is for the development an innovative technique to continuously determine, in real-time, the cylinder gas pressure in diesel engine cylinders. The technique is based on the electro-chemical phenomena of ionized species formatiion during the combustion process. The ionized species reduce the electrical resistance between two electrodes and their concentratuion is measured by a probe i ...

  8. Easy Access to Freight Locomotives

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: 141FR3

    GS Engineering is proposing an innovative access system for freight locomotives that will make on-boarding and off-boarding significantly easier and safer by reducing the effort required and assisting workers with the climb up and down. The proposed solutions would eliminate the large first step and reduce / eliminate the additional steps required to board the train. An improved anti-skid step wil ...

  9. Corrosion Resistant Prestressing Strand for Prestressed Concrete Bridges

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: 141FH6

    Prestressing strands are the core constituents of prestressed concrete structures. Steel offers important advantages over the emerging classes of composite tendons in this application; susceptibility of prestressing steel to corrosion, however, is a concern. The market appeal of existing corrosion-resistant strands has been dampened by their high cost and some enduring technical concerns. In recen ...

  10. LookOut: A Scenario-based Driving Simulator for Enhancing Hazard Detection and Avoidance

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: 132FH2

    the goal of driver's education is to provide students with the skills necessary to safely and effectively operate a motor vehicle. While effective training has been implemented since the 1930s, research suggest opportunities to enhance driver hazard anticipation and avoidance, which could in turn dramatically impact public safety. Hazard-related training has traditionally been difficult to accom ...
