  1. Low Cost and Scalable Nano-Silicon Production

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: A12005

    The U.S. Army has a need for cheap, high quality nanosilicon powder. With similar energy density and better aging effects than nanoaluminum, silicon is an excellent candidate for use a metal nanofuel. In Phase I, Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) demonstrated a scalable method for production of nanosized silicon. By the end of Phase I, we have demonstrated that a 5kg/day production ...

  2. Development of Lightweight, Recyclable Low Cost, Nonwoven Cloth Duck Material

    SBC: NANOSYNTEX            Topic: A12054

    Nylon Duck Cloth (Mil-C-43734 Types 4 & 5) are high strength fabrics that are used commonly by the military for a number of equipage applications. These primarily utilize 500 denier textured nylon yarns with a polyurethane back coating to achieve desired strength. As a result the fabric is very heavy and bulky with a basis weight of over 6 oz/sq.yd. Additionally, the fabric is highly flammable an ...

  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. Corona Discharge Vortex Agglomerator for Improved Separation of Fine Sand/Dust Particles in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A14004

    Sand/dust particles have significant detrimental effects on turbine engine performance and durability. Current inertial particle separators are inadequate to achieve filtration/separation of fine particles. A novel electrostatic method is proposed to improve their efficiency by charging and agglomerating the fine particles. The method is based on a unique application of a low temperature plasma t ...

  5. Low-profile VHF-UHF antennas using anisotropic/inhomogeneous MetaFerrites

    SBC: MetaMaterials.LLC            Topic: A14018

    This research is aimed at using MetaFerrite composites to design low profile, octave bandwidth with gain greater than 0 dBi VHF-UHF antennas for Army platforms where size and weight are critically important. The goals of this proposal are to design such an antenna 200-500 MHz band. In 2013, MetaMaterials Inc. researchers demonstrated that their proprietary anisotropic MetaFerrites could be used to ...

  6. Human-Robot Performance- Test, Evaluate, Analyze, and Measure (TEAM)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU3

    Mixed human-robot teams have potential to reduce risk to soldiers during missions while matching or improving performance over human-only teams. Responsibility to achieve mission goals can be shared between humans and robots to improve mission success and operational timeliness. Dynamic shifts of task responsibility between humans and robots during operations can improve resilience to the uncertai ...

  7. Welding High Performance Bridge Steel with a Pulsed Energy Source

    SBC: KAI, LLC            Topic: 132FH1

    This proposal is in response to announcement DTRT57-13-R-SBIR2 in the area 13.2-FH1, Development of Innovative Welding for High Performance Bridge Steel. It is proposed to use Homopolar Generator (HPG) Welding to join the high performance bridge steel in the 3” by 30” cross sections mentioned in the announcement in under 1 second. All of the energy required to perform the weld is stored in the ...

  8. Self Regenerating Dust Masks for Punishing Military Operational Environments

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A12116

    Our combatants deployed in operational environments which have high airborne particulate matter (PM) levels are at serious risk of developing respiratory and cardiovascular disease. Unfortunately no standardized PM protective equipment can currently be issued due to limitations for extended wear during sustained aerobic activity. Lynntech, Inc. proposes to develop lightweight PM filter half-face ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Compressive Sampling Applied to Millimeter-wave Single Detector Imagers

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A14AT003

    Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative millimeter wave imaging systems capable of real-time, high-resolution imaging at frequencies up to 150 G ...
