  1. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  2. Ultrafast Physical Random Number Generation Using Chaos

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14AT002

    Random numbers are essential for a growing number of modern applications. As computer speed and communications bandwidth have increased the potential for practical streaming cipher and large-scale Monte Carlo simulations have become technologically feasible. For these and other applications, ultrafast random number generators are essential. This is intuitively clear. Additionally, however, the ide ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Compressive Sampling Applied to Millimeter-wave Single Detector Imagers

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A14AT003

    In Phase I, TRI/Austin teamed with Missouri S&T to investigate and refine several technologies, i.e. synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imaging algorithms; advanced Compressive Sensing (CS) techniques; innovative imaging hardware; under-sampling; etc, as they apply to high speed millimeter wave imaging. These investigations were supported by both modeling and empirical testing. The Phase I results c ...

  5. Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR)

    SBC: Goleta Star LLC            Topic: A16AT011

    Goleta Star and the University of Florida (UFL) will jointly develop Nadir SAR 3D imaging capability from a Circular SAR orbit that can be transitioned into selected Army applications, primarily existing single-channel radars. Both Goleta and UFL have 3D imaging background and relevant capability that will jointly feed into the desired imaging technology development. In addition Goleta Star has ...

  6. Field Drug Identification Kit

    SBC: SensoDX II, LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Illicit drug trafficking has increasingly been used to fund terrorist groups since the end of the Cold War. As illicit drugs increasingly finance terrorism, soldiers in the U.S. Army are increasingly playing an active role in identifying these drugs in difficult and demanding environments. Unfortunately, these devices have many shortcomings, such as being too expensive, bulky and heavy, being non- ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Lightweight Thermoacoustic Device Using Novel Materials for Noise Cancellation of Military Vehicles

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A15AT006

    In military settings, vehicle engine noise can be a source of vulnerability, revealing the location of vital resources to hostile threats. Cancellation of the vehicles noise is necessary to safeguard many military missions and mitigate enemy threats. This proposal concerns an innovative lightweight thermoacoustic device using thin, flexible, novel materials for active noise cancellation of militar ...

  10. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...
