  1. Power Generating Backpack

    SBC: APECOR CORP            Topic: N06T026

    The purpose of the Power Generating Backpack is to allow soldiers to generate electricity while walking. This backpack represents an alternative to bulky battery systems soldiers often carry on the battlefield. The adoption of this backpack will result in a lighter load, thus improved comfort and mobility for combat units. The design APECOR is proposing will be transparent and of minimal impact t ...

  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. Advanced Electrical Power Management System


    CME along with Texas A&M University (TAMU) continue under this proposed Phase II to further develop an advanced electrical power management system for shipboard application, called PARE (Power Analysis and Reconfiguration Engine). The present version of PARE is a monitoring and control system that monitors the shipboard electrical power system, detects abnormal and fault conditions, determines a ...

  4. Communication Analysis for Enhanced Team Performance in the AOC

    SBC: Design Interactive, Inc            Topic: AF06T027

    Improving team communication in distributed C2 environments must start with addressing underlying components of communication problems. First, it is important to understand what defines “good” communications (e.g., domain-specific frequencies, types, shifts from explicit to implicit communication) and what communications, or lack thereof, contribute to breakdowns. By neglecting the examinati ...

  5. Prediction of the Degradation of Composite Materials for Emerging Army Facilities

    SBC: DUTTA TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A06T027

    An innovative methodology, based on mechanistic models, will be developed for prediction of long-term (25+ years) durability of composites for the US Army’s emerging facilities in different climatic zones. Accelerated testing simulating the Army’s composites applications in various constructions and fields will validate it. Phase I will develop the basic predictive model using the in-house NOV ...

  6. A Very High Bit Rate Broadband Acoustic Modem for Short-to-Medium Range Data Transmission in Ports and Shallow Water using Spread-Spectrum Modulation

    SBC: EDGEONE LLC            Topic: N05T022

    This proposal presents the development, testing and commercialization of two very high bit rate broadband acoustic modem prototypes, capable of achieving true data rates of up to 100 kbps at a maximum range of 300 meters, for a maximum rate-range of 30 kbps-km. The frequency band of operation is 240 kHz to 360 kHz approximately. The technology is based on an improved algorithm for estimating the t ...

  7. Demonstration of Drag Reduction Using Nanotube Coated Hydrophobic Surfaces


    With higher fuel costs and desire for ehanced performance, new techniques for improving efficiencies in marine propulsion are required. The reduction of the viscous drag is one such technique. Various active and passive measures have been extensively researched with mixed results for total energy savings. However, recent research in microfluidics has indicated significant drag reduction using s ...

  8. Innovative High-Power Propulsion Technologies for Orbital Transfer Vehicles

    SBC: New Era Technology            Topic: AF06T001

    A fully integrated nuclear MHD-MPD electric propulsion system is proposed with potential to provide quantum improvement in the thrust level, specific impulse (ISP) and efficiency of MHD power system as well as the MPD thruster. The proposed MHD-MPD electric propulsion system is intended to be used as an orbital transfer vehicle for multiple uses with a single propellant tank and potential for in-o ...

  9. Direct Write Light Emitting Arrays for Display on Flexible Conformable Surfaces

    SBC: nScrypt, Inc.            Topic: AF06T034

    The proposed project focuses on the development of fully inorganic phosphor TFEL arrays with NPs layer. EL arrays are thin, bright, flexible and flat and could be easily mounted on conformal surfaces. Devices have 179o viewing angle and because they do not contain filaments or mechanical parts, they are not susceptible to shock and vibration. The direct write fabrication and layer by layer metho ...
