  1. Intelligent ILBE Generator & Energy Management (I2GEM)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: N06T026

    The work proposed here augments the increasing body of research on capturing energy from walking. It focuses on the aspects associated with converting the captured energy, in the form of physical displacement, into an electrical form. The proposed Power Generator Back Pack is based on a Vernier Hybrid Machine (VHM) and magnetic gearing. The Vernier hybrid machine is a member of the family of vari ...

  2. Real-Time Detector of Human Fatigue

    SBC: Bio-Behavior Analysis Systems, LLC            Topic: AF04T007

    We propose to develop a computer based system for the online analysis of bio-behavioral signals associated with momentary loss of alertness. We will continue our development of bio-behavioral measures indicative of lapses in alertness. Our system will use only measures that can be obtained without attaching sensors to the operator. We will concentrate on monitoring the oculomotor system using came ...

  3. HSU Charge Prediction and Optimization Software for the EFV

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: N06T001

    The Marine Corps Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle utilizes 14 hydropneumatic suspension units (HSU) that have variable stiffness controlled by the nitrogen charge (mass) in each. Each HSU consists of a primary spring that contains a nominally 50/50 mixture of nitrogen and oil, and secondary spring that contains nitrogen with a small amount of oil. The vehicle ride height is effected by ambient tem ...

  4. 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

  5. Optimized Quantum Dot Superlattice Structures for Ultra-High Efficiency Photovoltaic Cells and Photodetectors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06T026

    Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar-array mass, volume, and cost. In this project we propose to develop: (i) a concept of the novel quantum dot superlattice (QDS) solar cells, which are estimated to be more efficient and radiation tolerant than conventional multi-junction solar cells, (ii) new computational tools for the quantum-dot nanostructure optimization for the specific ...

  6. Novel Volume of Solid Technology for Nonlinear Aeroelastic Stability Analysis

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06T016

    Morphing technology enables aerospace vehicles to achieve a broader range of operational modes. Computational aeroelastic and design analysis tools of these vehicles must be able to handle arbitrarily large deformations and shape changes. Innovative Volume of Solid technology is proposed to cast structure/body-dynamics equations in an Eulerian reference frame, preserving the order of accuracy of ...

  7. New Methods of Controlling Electron Kinetics and Plasma Chemistry in Pulsed Discharges of Electronegative Gases

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06T038

    A number of modern technologies utilize unique properties of highly non-equilibrium plasmas produced by electric discharges in molecular gases. Electron kinetics and vibrationally excited molecules define key chemical reactions in these plasmas. The goal of this project is to utilize the non-local nature of electron kinetics to improve the performance of various plasma devices under pulsed power c ...

  8. Novel Stability Model and Flameholder Concept for Modern Augmentors

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF06T033

    Static stability is a major challenge for modern augmentors that feature close-coupled fuel injection/flameholders operating at low pressures and high inlet velocities, inlet temperatures and vitiation levels. Reduced dilatation and baroclinic vorticity effects at augmentor conditions cause large scale von Karman vortices to dominate the blowout event, in contrast to conventional bluffbody shear l ...

  9. 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. They also prevent ear plug usage and n ...

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

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    The objective of this effort is to apply a systems-biology-centered methodology for the identification of subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity, with the goal of developing a genetic profile to identify individuals predisposed to mefloquine neurotoxicity. The core hypothesis is that elucidating subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity requires the combination of cellular lev ...
