  1. NOVEL MICROFLUIDIC BASED BIO-INSPIRED BATTERY

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: ARMY03T22

    Our Phase II goal is to develop (model, design, fabricate and test) a miniaturized biofuel cell capable of generating energy from biomass to power the OFW sensor suite. Phase I goals were successfully met by demonstrating a prototype using glucose as fuel. In contrast to conventional technologies, this biobattery promises to be compact/lightweight, require little/no logistical support (re-supply ...

  2. Plasma Wave Electronics

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: ARMY03T06

    Terahertz plasma wave detectors and emitters utilizing the high-density 2-D electrons in submicron AlGaInN/GaN-based Quantum Well Heterostructure Field Effect Transistors (QW-HFETs)with high-sensitivity levels for the sensing of terahertz (THz) frequency electromagnetic radiation are proposed and developed.

  3. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Recent statistics from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) show that significant proportion of soldiers injured in blast explosion endure traumatic brain injury (TBI). At the same time our understanding of TBI mechanisms and protection against kinetic and blast

  4. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An ena

  5. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    Mefloquine is known to cause adverse neurological effects, possibly attributable to single nucleotide polymorphisms (SNPs). Our objective is to develop a genetic screen capable of determining the susceptibility of an individual to Mefloquine neurotoxicity. In Phase I, transcriptional profiling of primary neurons exposed to Mefloquine was used to construct an intracellular pathway model to explain ...

  6. High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Bone Conduction Communication Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T033

    Warfighters increasingly rely on radio communication equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. Current military communication gear involves headphones and acoustic microphones. Unfortunately, headphones cover the ears and deteriorate detection and localization of ambient sounds that may be important for tactical situations. An alternative to air conduction is bo ...

  7. Optimal Design of Compact Fuel Cell Hybrid Power Systems

    SBC: INTERACTIVE DATA VISUALIZATION            Topic: A06T014

    This work will continue the use of numerical methods to determine optimal design parameters for a compact hybrid fuel cell power system driven by a statistically determined load profile. Detailed physics-based models will be used to represent the bahavior of the components in the hybrid system. The components considered in the hybrid system for Phase II will be a PEM fuel cell, Li-ion batteries an ...

  8. Software for Generating Geometrically and Topologically Accurate Urban Terrain Models Using Implicit Methods

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T011

    Currently, the terrain models in most widespread use consist of surfaces represented explicitly as planar triangular facets connected in a continuous manner with each other (triangular irregular networks or TINs). Generally, these models are "terrain skins," that is, representations of height as a univalent function of two independent lateral variables (such as latitude and longitude). Objects wit ...

  9. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  10. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...
