  1. Recognition of Non-Native Speakers

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: A08085

    We propose a novel and promising non-native speaker recognition system by using both high-level language cues and low-level acoustic accent cues. The system consists of a high-level language cue based sub-system and four accent recognition based sub-systems. Each sub-system can be used individually or together via system fusion. The novelty and uniqueness of our proposed approach are as follows: F ...

  2. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...

  3. CFD Toolkit for Modeling Parachutists in Freefall

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A07182

    A recent increase in the occurrence of pilot parachute deployment hesitation events during training has focused attention on the flow field about parachutists in freefall. An improved understanding of this flow will contribute to better equipment and improved safety. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is a powerful technique for exploring such flows. Once validated against experimental d ...

  5. High Energy Laser Component Technology for Eye-Safer Fiber Lasers

    SBC: KIGRE, INC.            Topic: A08137

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a direct laser diode array side pumped large mode area high power eye-safer fiber laser. Traditional laser diode end pumped single mode fiber laser designs are limited in terms laser power pumping and extraction. Double clad large mode area fibers are scaleable to high output power levels. They typically utilize fiber delivered ...

    SBIR Phase I 2008 Department of DefenseArmy


    The US Army is seeking to develop an IR obscurant material for military operations and high aspect ratio, conductive, metallic nanoflake (HANF) is under consideration. Conductive nanoflakes have been demonstrated to be excellent screeners of IR when used in advanced countermeasure devices such as smoke grenades or smoke pots. The primary objective of the Phase II effort is to further develop and ...

  7. Dismounted Combat Identification

    SBC: Eigent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08087

    In a complex theater of operations there is a need to track soldiers’ positions to keep them out of harms way. A secure, innovative dismounted identification system that will identify dismounted personnel at tactically significant ranges (1,200 meters or more), such as a long-range RFID interrogator and transponder system, is required to verify the actual location of soldiers, and precisely trac ...

  8. Low Cost Production of Transparent Spinel Domes Using Freeze Casting

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: A08037

    This Phase I SBIR ARMY project proposes the development of 7” in diameter hemispherical spinel domes (3.5” radius, 0.18” wall thickness, 160 degree aperture) through the combination of freeze casting (FC) technology with unique nanopowder technology commercialized by MER for magnesium aluminate spinel (MgAl2O4) ceramics. These technologies allow for the production of spinel domes with high g ...

  9. Automated Identification Technology System (AIT) to Identify, Track and Monitor the Condition of Medical Supply Items from Point of Origin to End User

    SBC: Eigent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A07144

    At the present time there is no system to monitor the progress of medical shipments to and within the combat theater other than those pallets that are tagged with Radio Frequency Identification (RFID) tags in compliance with the current DoD mandate for tagging pallets and cases. Full implementation of the DoD mandate to tag all pallets and cases of Class VIII (Medical) materiel is not expected to ...

  10. Field-deployable source of Carbon Dioxide for use in Vector Surveillance

    SBC: CUBE Technology            Topic: A07152

    CUBE Technology has created an extremely compact and efficient enclosed combustor dubbed a Micro-Furnace that have demonstrated an unprecedented operating range. They operate on fuels from hydrogen to alcohol to JP-8. This Micro-Furnace combustor is fast-starting and burns less than 200gm of JP-8 fuel to deliver 400cc/minute of CO2 Mosquito attractant over 12 hours. In addition, this system inc ...
