  1. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  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. Rapid Development of Weapon Payloads via Additive Manufacturing

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A001

    MATSYS proposes to adapt emerging additive manufacturing techniques (so-called 3-D Printing) for use with reactive structural materials and demonstrate this capability to rapidly fabricate reactive case. Our concept incorporates two major manufacturing steps: 3D printing of green compacts from pure Al or Al-based reactive powder blend; and Microwave (MW) sintering of green compacts into net-shaped ...

  4. Self-fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials (SF-SRM) for High Combustion Efficiency

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA16A002

    MATSYS proposes to develop, test and evaluate a scalable metal-based reactive structural material that will self-fragment to micron or sub-micron scale fuel particles when subjected to explosive shock loading, resulting in significantly enhanced metal combustion efficiency. Use of reactive material casings offers the potential for several-fold increases in blast and overpressure by generating rapi ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  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. 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. Tactical Immune System based on Dynamically Assigned Sense of Self

    SBC: CYBERROCK INC.            Topic: A16AT010

    Inspired by the self-nonself discrimination in our natural immune system, we propose to develop the first practical immune system that will provide unprecedented real-time protection for identified tactical platforms and networks in ARMY's Common Operating Environment (COE). Unlike previous models of self which are passive reflection of the exiting being of the protected program or system, our mod ...
