  1. MenuChoice:Nutrition Program for Community-based Group Homes for Persons with Intellectual or Developmental Disabilities

    SBC: GOOD NUTRITION IDEAS, LLC            Topic: 84133S1

    This project develops a nutrition program, MenuChoice©, for community-based group homes for persons with intellectual or developmental disabilities (IDD). Adults with IDD experience poorer nutritional health and more nutrition-related secondary conditions than adults without disabilities. These conditions are preventable and modifiable through a safe, healthful diet, but multiple challenges precl ...

  6. Compact, Light Weight, Low Cost, Precision, Non-inertial Underwater Navigation Sensor

    SBC: Marport Stout, Inc            Topic: N11AT027

    Doppler velocity logs (DVLs) are an essential component of any integrated autonomous underwater navigation system but the size, weight and cost is not compatible with the small AUVs foreseen for riverine and coastal surveys. The research objective is to develop a small wideband DVL (WB-DVL) which offers a step change in functionality and performance over current acoustic navigation systems and whi ...

  8. Design Requirements and Mission Planning for Hypersonic Munitions in Weather Environments

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N11AT036

    CFDRC proposes the development of methodologies and tools for the integration of weather with multiple components of the hypersonic munitions life cycle process. The impact of weather on high speed projectiles is a complex multidisciplinary problem that can only be accurately estimated in operations with the presence of design specification and validation. Under previous contracts, CFDRC developed ...

  10. Fully autonomous retrieval, turnaround, and launch for a long-endurance UAV with VTOL capability

    SBC: Aerovel Corporation            Topic: N09T001

    We propose to develop techniques and equipment for fully automated retrieval, refueling/ recharging, and relaunch of Aerovel"s Flexrotor. Our method would be suitable for use on a small platform such as a boat in a choppy sea. It would allow the ground-handling cycle to be performed remotely with no manual intervention, and so enable extended missions through remote unattended sites. Planned work ...
