  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 ...

  6. FABRICATION OF HIGH ASPECT RATIO Cu AND BRASS NANOFLAKES FOR IR OBSCURANT APPLICATIONS

    SBC: SIGMA TECHNOLOGIES INTERNATIONAL GROUP, INC.            Topic: A07121

    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. A Multiplexed Assay for the Detection of Pathogens of Military Importance in Sand Flies

    SBC: Inbios International Inc            Topic: A07150

    Sand flies can cause illnesses such as Leishmaniasis caused by a parasite or sand fly fever due to sand fly fever viruses. The objective of this study is to develop a robust, field grade, screening assay for the detection of both leishmania parasites and/or sand fly fever viruses directly in sand flies. The test will utilize a multi-line lateral flow (dipstick) chromatography incorporated into a c ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Personal Insect Repellent Device

    SBC: STERLING INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: A07151

    Sterling International Inc. proposes to develop a light-weight, portable, water-proof “Personal Insect Repellent Device”, impregnated with powerful spatial repellent(s), that can be attached to a solider, or an individual soldier's uniform, to provide long-lasting, passive, whole-body, spatial protection against bites from insect disease vectors (e.g. sand flies and mosquitoes) and other bitin ...
