  1. 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 ...

  2. Dual-Output Broadband Linearized Modulator For Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: ST041003

    Practical, low-cost, broadband 20GHz, high dynamic range, "inear analog photonic links" are needed in many DoD communications, radar, and surveillance applications. This effort is to develop a new type of linearized optical modulator for broadband multi-octave operation to be used to enhance the dynamic range of the wideband RF photonic link.

  3. Microchannel Reactor with Low Oxygen Consumption For Highly Efficient Hydrogen Production from Liquid Hydrocarbons

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: N04T034

    The Navy deploys unmanned undersea vehicles (UUVs) as underwater scouts and navigation aids. Future UUVs must operate autonomously to collect, analyze, and transmit intelligence to the host ship. Powering autonomous underwater robots for long-endurance missions is among the toughest problems the Navy faces in deploying future systems because batteries generally fall short on range and stamina. ...

  4. Portable Logistical Fuel Cell Powered Generator

    SBC: INNOVATEK, INC.            Topic: N05T016

    InnovaTek will develop a JP-8 fuel cell electrical generator built on a microchannel reactor design that provides a very low volume, light weight system. The objective of the Phase II work is to develop and demonstrate a prototype system that converts JP-8 fuel to a hydrogen rich feed for a solid oxide fuel cell that produces 0.5 to 1 kW electrical power. The prototype system will be suitable fo ...

  5. Cooperative Tracking of Moving Targets by Teams of Autonomous Unmanned Air Vehicles

    SBC: INSITU GROUP, INC.            Topic: AF04T011

    This proposal is based on Phase I work to greatly improve coordinated visual tracking of moving targets by multiple autonomous air vehicles. The overall program objective is to demonstrate, in flight, the ability of a cooperating flock of UAVs to autonomously track an evading target, without operator interaction for 30 minutes.

  6. Built-In Filament Control for Long Lifetime in Broad Area Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: ST061009

    The elimination or suppression of filaments through the use of photonic crystal structures is proposed in this STTR. Filament formation is a well-known problem in high-power, broad area semiconductor diode lasers, often leading to catastrophic failure of the diodes. The diode failure also normally results in a system failure in the systems in which the diodes are employed. By using a bi-direct ...

  7. Next-Generation Waterjet Technology for High-Speed Precision Machining of SiC Ceramic Matrix Composites

    SBC: OMAX CORP.            Topic: N06T012

    A next-generation wataerjet technology will be developed for low-cost, high-speed, and precision machining of silicon carbide ceramic matrix composites (SiC CMCs). The new process will have cutting power equivalent to that of a conventional abrasive-waterjet (AWJ) operating at 1500 MPa while possessing all the inherent advantages of AWJs over other fielded machine tools; at such a super-high pres ...

  8. Manned, Standalone, and Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Portable Sensors for Detection of Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: SEATTLE SENSOR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A05T022

    The objectives of Phase II are to provide an advanced prototype 24-channel, portable surface plasmon resonance (SPR)-based biosensor system that is capable of simultaneously detecting 1)bacteria [spores (killed B. anthrasis) and vegative (killed F. tulare

  9. Electrodeless Lorentz Force Thruster for High-Power Propulsion

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: AF06T001

    The Electrodeless Lorentz Force (ELF) Thruster is based on recent laboratory results on the formation and acceleration of magnetized plasmoids. The goal of the proposed research is to build and test a prototype that has the potential to surpass all current electric propulsion systems in efficiency, power, and Isp. The thrust is produced by the rapid acceleration of a compact toroidal plasmoid gene ...
