Data Driven Intent Recognition FrameworkSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitionsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and MagnesiumSBC: 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. ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care ApplicationsSBC: GeneCapture, Inc. Topic: CBD15C001
The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust moleculaSTTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
Modular Pulse Charger and Laser Triggering System for Large-Scale EMP and HPM ApplicationsSBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. 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 ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane WindowsSBC: 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 ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of EnergyARPA-E
Using Magnetic Levitation for Non-Destructive Detection of Defective and Counterfeit MaterielSBC: Nano Terra, Inc. Topic: DLA15C001
The introduction of substandard or counterfeit materials into the DoD supply chain can have extremely expensive, and potentially life threatening, consequences. Current techniques used to detect nonconforming materiel can be destructive (e.g., manual sectioning and inspection of a part), time consuming and expensive (e.g., micro-computed tomography, ultrasound), or provide only limited informatio ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics Agency
