  1. 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 ...

  2. Innovative Mitigation of Radiation Effects in Advanced Technology Nodes

    SBC: Reliable MicroSystems, LLC            Topic: DTRA16A003

    Establish a radiation-aware analysis capability in a commercial EDA design flow that will enable first-pass success in radiation-hardened by design (RHBD) for DoD ASICs in much the same way that existing EDA design suites ensure first pass functionality and performance success of complex ASICs destined for commercial applications. Layout-aware, calibrated single-event radiation models that captur ...

  3. Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM Applications

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: DTRA16A004

    For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Miniature Mass Spectrometer for Peptide Sequencing and Mobile Coupling with Separation Techniques

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: A16AT012

    Using advanced ion optics that was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), BaySpec will develop a prototype of portable mass spectrometer (less than 40 lb. and 300W) with continuous atmospheric pressure inlet that is fully capable of uninterrupted on-line sampling from an ambient environment. The continuous nature of the inlet ensures full compatibility with separation technique ...

  9. Wearable Neurophysiological Monitoring Device for Circadian Rhythm Assessment and Intervention

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: A16AT014

    This Phase I STTR project will develop a platform to demonstrate high-quality, multi-modal acquisition of neurophysiological signals, including EEG, heart rate/blood oxygenation via photoplethysmography (PPG), electrodermal (EDA) activity, temperature plus environmental factors such as ambient light and sound in a simple, wearable headband. The hardware will be coupled with the development of a cl ...

  10. 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 ...
