  1. 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 ...

  2. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A15AT001

    As the warfighter is increasingly using more highly integrated instruments, e.g. a laser rangefinder (LRF) combined with a laser designator and an imager, the need to decrease the size of these components becomes more important.Compact small munition applications of rangefinders particularly place an emphasis on size of the optical front end.In order to make the transceiver more compact, special a ...

  3. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  4. Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning to Improve Maneuver of Robotic/Autonomous Systems

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A17AT019

    Robotic autonomous systems (RAS) are currently being used for many different applications using a wide variety of vehicle platforms. The environments in which RAS are being used are becoming increasingly complex. Vehicle path planning and control is challenging in environments with many obstacles and uneven terrain. This proposed research will develop and compare multiple techniques to improve veh ...

  5. Artificial Intelligence/Machine Learning to Improve Maneuver of Robotic/Autonomous Systems

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A17AT019

    Autonomous vehicles are being used for many applications varying from small indoor robots, to large-scale mining trucks, and military vehicles operating in fast-changing environments. Global position systems (GPS) have traditionally been used for vehicle positioning. GPS works well in open environments, but suffers from significant degradation due to terrain, certain operating conditions, and even ...

  6. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  7. Bioaerosol Detector Wide Area Network

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: A17AT020

    Historically, the monitoring and detection of biological threats has been carried out via the deployment of high sensitivity / high complexity monitoring nodes to insure high probability of detection and low false alarm rate. Unfortunately, this detection strategy has inherent limits with respect to coverage and response due to its high deployment/support costs, mandating a new approach to environ ...

  8. Biofidelic Rat Testing Device (RTD) to Measure Blast Exposure and Loadings for TBI

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A17AT022

    The overall objective of this project (Phase I, II, and III) is to develop, fabricate, and test a novel biofidelic rat surrogate for the validation of primary blast loading conditions for mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI). The CFDRC/NJIT team will use extensive knowledge of blast loading characteristics and TBI studies coupled with past/ongoing efforts designing and testing a rat surrogate. In P ...

  9. BioSENSE, for identification of allosteric transcription factor biosensors

    SBC: SYNVITROBIO, INC.            Topic: A18BT016

    There is a need to develop affordable and specific biosensors to defend against current and future biological threats. Biological methods of detection have been evolved by nature to detect molecules at the micro-scale with flexible specificity and with downstream effectors. Advances in cell-free technology allow for deployment of biosensors on pH-strip-type paper, an affordable, robust, disposable ...

  10. Biosensor for Detection of Synthetic Cannabinoids

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX, INC.            Topic: A17AT014

    Recreational drug use by military personnel can impact soldier preparedness and performance especially in difficult and demanding environments. One challenge for monitoring illicit drug use is that current tests rely on the identification of specific chemical structures. Small variants in the chemistry of a drug can evade detection. In this Phase I SBIR, we will develop a lateral flow test that ...
