  1. Air Platform Passive Occupant Protection

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A18001

    Body flailing during a severe helicopter crash can lead to injury or death when the head and upper torso strike rigid objects within the flail envelope.Currently fielded restraint systems allow a large flail envelope because the strap routing and anchor positions require some body motion to occur before the straps can develop significant reaction loads.Safe, Inc. (Safe) is proposing an alternate d ...

  2. Near Real-Time LIDAR Processing and Exploitation Algorithm Development

    SBC: RINCON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A17143

    Todays advanced LiDAR systems typically lack the ability to autonomously detect man-made shapes and structures and provide that 3-D data to Geospatial Intelligence quickly and effectively to aid in tactical decisions. Rincon Research Corporation (RRC) presents its solution to this problem through the design and development of algorithms that perform onboard Automated Feature Extraction (AFE) and/o ...

  3. Increased Capacity Retention of Silicon Anodes for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: LITHIUM BATTERY ENGINEERING LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANY            Topic: A18036

    This proposal offers a new approach to stabilizing the very high capacity Si to use for lithium ion anodes - the use of a LiSi alloy rather than only Si. By starting with a silicon alloy instead of pure silicon, the initial structure is already in a stable expanded state. Mathematically stresses encountered on charging and discharging are reduced when the silicon is partially lithiated. It has bee ...

  4. Innovative Bridge Launch Linkage Assembly

    SBC: NOVUS TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: A18108

    The US Army currently uses the Armored Vehicle-Launched Bridge (AVLB) to temporarily span gaps in the terrain such as rivers, ravines or replace blown-up bridges. The launch system utilizes an in-bridge hydraulic cylinder and cable-pulley system to deploy and retrieve the 63-foot-long scissor type bridge. This hydraulic cylinder and cable- pulley system is bulky, heavy and adds significant load to ...

  6. Coordination and Cooperation in Ad-Hoc Networks in Congested and Contested Environments

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18051

    There is a definite need for tactical ad-hoc networks to understand to which degree communications can still occur in congested and contested environments where power sources are short-lived, the spectrum is limited and where jamming (both friendly and adversarial) can occur spontaneously and without warning. In this situation, network nodes will need to cooperate and coordinate negotiate ways for ...

  7. Spall Liner Energy Attenuating (EA) Material Development

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A18084

    Occupants of ground combat vehicles are at risk of head injury when the vehicle is attacked by an underbody blast and its violent motion causes the head to strike the interior.Occupants are also at risk from spallfragments of material liberated from the interior wall of the vehicle by shock waves or overmatched threats.Vehicles currently have interior liner panels for spall mitigation but lack ade ...

  8. ADHoC Adversarial Machine Learning for the Hardening of Cyber Defenses

    SBC: Siege Technologies, LLC            Topic: A18050

    Siege proposes to develop the ADHoC (Adversarial Machine Learning for the Hardening of Cyber Defenses) software capability which combines a novel implementation of adversarial machine learning with a high-fidelity cyber simulation and evaluation environment to harden DML. The proposed solution provides a process for pairing cyber-attacks with AML algorithms in order to defeat DML systems. Through ...

  9. Deep-etched pixels for dualband SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A18039

    Deep etching is necessary for pixel definition in multi-band infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) consisting of stacked photodiodes.To eliminate optical crosstalk between pixels and improve modulation transfer function (MTF), the trenches between pixels have to be etched sufficiently deep, resulting in high aspect ratios greater than ~ 5-to-1 in short-pitch FPAs.The resulting loss in optical fill-fa ...

  10. Data Security and Integrity Enhancements for Databases in the Tactical Environment

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A17037

    Maxentric’s solution provides multi-level security and information flow control with cell level encryption for existing relational databases. At the tactical edge, access to advanced cloud based services such Apache Accumulo may not be possible. The novel database solution allows these types of services to be deployed in any point of the network, but also to be integrated in already existing app ...
