  2. Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitions

    SBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: DTRA16A001

    This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...

  3. Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and Magnesium

    SBC: Adranos Energetics LLC            Topic: DTRA16A002

    While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...

  4. Nanostructured conductive transparent coatings

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A15AT016

    Triton Systems, Inc. and its academic partner are proposing to fabricate an innovative highly conductive and transmissive thin layer to replace ITO on large area, lightweight solar cells. Part of the proposed approach will be to texture the surface of the coating to improve light transmission into the solar cell. Triton will work with a manufacturer of flexible solar panels for the Army, who wil ...

  5. Conductive Transmissive Coating for Enhanced-Absorption Thin Film Solar Cells

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Thin-film, lightweight, large-area flexible inorganic solar cells have shown promise to meet the militarys remote power needs on the battlefield. However, thin film solar cells normally have inferior conversion efficiencies due to limited absorption of sunlight by the thin active layer. Various approaches have been investigated to improve conversion efficiencies of thin film solar cells. Among the ...

  6. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  7. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  8. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) and University of Vermont (UVM) present this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines". Among the primary gaps in our current landmine detection technology base is the ability to detect a wide range of buried explosive hazards including emerging low-metal mines and improvised explosive devices ...

  9. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  10. Paper test cards for detection of illicit narcotic and cannabinioid drugs

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water to activate the tests. Within five minutes, a color ...
