  5. Bioinformatics: Data Integration for Biomonitoring Applications

    SBC: Reference Genomics, Inc.            Topic: DTRA162002

    To effectively counter Weapons of Mass Destruction (WMD) we must be able to accurately and sensitively detect the sites of WMD development. While the reagents and byproducts of nuclear activity may be rapidly depleted from environmental sites, those transient perturbations leave a lasting mark on the resident microbial communities by promoting and restricting the growth of different microorganisms ...

  8. C2-ASSIST: A Command and Control Assistant for Marine Commanders

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: N162074

    Information flow is central to effective command and control. As technologies continue to evolve in communications, intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance, there is a growing wealth of information available to the commander. This abundance of information can be underutilized given the operational tempo. What is needed are command tools with capabilities that assist commanders with timely s ...

  10. Compact Position- and Azimuth-Determining System (CPADS)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N162076

    The Improved Position and Azimuth Determining System (IPADS) takes up 6400 cubic inches, weighs 135 pounds with a Global Positioning System (GPS) receiver, and requires 200 watts of power. Clearly, there is a need to reduce its size, weight, and power (SWAP) footprint. The embedded inertial measurement unit (IMU) is the most SWAP- and performance-critical component of the system, which also includ ...
