  1. Reliable Tactical Silent Power Generator for Austere Environments

    SBC: Mesodyne Inc.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Mesodyne’s Light-Cell technology was developed at MIT and is being commercialized for the small UAV market. In this effort, the UAV generator is being adapted to meet the needs of dismounted warfighters. Mesodyne’s patented Light-Cell generator converts fuel into electricity via light. Specifically, a microcombustor heats a nanophotonic material to incandescence. The nanophotonic material, whi ...

  2. Signature Reduction using Metasurfaces on group 1 UAV platforms

    SBC: NOTCH, INC.            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Enemies use radar system to identify and target Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). To prevent detection, the UAV should be able to reduce its RF signature by reducing its Radar Cross Section (RCS). In addition, it is essential for the "blue force" UAV to be able to use its RF systems (radar/comms) while not being detected. Traditional Radar Absorbing Materials (RAM) are used to absorb radar's Electr ...

  3. Advanced Electromagnetic Modeling with High Geometric Fidelity Using High-Order Curved Elements

    SBC: VIRTUAL EM INC.            Topic: N20BT028

    Virtual EM is proposing a method to achieve orders of magnitude improvement in computational efficiency in full-wave CEM codes by using high-order curved elements. Virtual EM’s own commercial product VirAntenn™ will provide the CEM setting for both developing and implementing the new capability in Phase I and Phase II, respectively. Using multi-wavelength long cells with high-order basis forms ...

  4. Multifunctional Integrated Sensing Cargo Pocket UAS

    SBC: ENDECTRA, LLC            Topic: AF19AT016

    Palm-sized unmanned aerial systems (nano UAS) are emerging as a new tool for warfighters, first responders, and private industry. However, their small mass, fragility, and limited batteries still necessitate the use of emerging, low mass/power technologies to meet the full range of potential missions, including new autonomous flight control and collision avoidance strategies, structural improvemen ...

  6. Point of care blood coagulopathy diagnostics

    SBC: Coalesenz Inc.            Topic: DHA19A001

    We have developed a novel low-cost, multi-functional blood coagulation sensor that can measure a patient’s coagulation status within less than 10 minutes using a 25mL drop of blood. This device addresses the critical unmet need to identify and manage patients with an elevated risk of life-threatening bleeding or thrombosis, the major causes of in-hospital preventable death. In addition, our inno ...

  8. Phase II: Real-Time Pilot Health, Performance Monitoring in RF-denied Environments

    SBC: BDYWR, LLC            Topic: AF19CT010

    Performance/Health monitoring applications use wearable physiological sensors to acquire physiological signals from the body. The sensed data is generally sent through wireless radio wave communication like Bluetooth for further analysis and inference. However, environments like an airplane cockpit/special operation are susceptible to external Radio Frequency (RF) interferences, as it can interfer ...

  10. Joint User-Centered Planning Artificial Intelligence Tools Effective Mission Reasoning (JUPITER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N19BT029

    Effective mission planning is critical for military strategy and execution. This process is complex as human operators must consider many variables (e.g., resource limitations, threats, risks) when formulating a plan to accomplish mission goals. Although powerful tools, such as the Navy’s Joint Mission Planning System (JMPS), provide advanced functionality, mission planning remains a hybrid acti ...
