  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. Production of Chemical Reagents for Prompt-Agent-Defeat Weapons

    SBC: Nalas Engineering Services Inc            Topic: DTRA14B001

    Nalas Engineering and Johns Hopkins University collaborated in a Phase I STTR program to study reactive mixtures of HI3O8 and nanocomposite fuels previously developed by the Weihs Group. These fuel/oxidizer mixtures are uniquely able to simultaneously produce heat and biocidal iodine gas, a combination designed to destroy biological weapons. The team at Nalas focused on evaluating conditions for p ...

  3. Analog Co-Processors for Complex System Simulation and Design

    SBC: Ocius Technologies LLC            Topic: ST15C002

    The solution of systems of both linear and non-linear partial differential equations (PDE) is important to many scientific problems, such as magnetohydrodynamic and non-linear acoustics. Application areas include computational electromagnetics, fusion en...

  4. Nonintrusive Detector of Acute Cognitive Strain (DACS)

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    Modern defense systems place high cognitive demands on warfighters, often taxing the limit of human capabilities and causing operators to suffer Acute Cognitive Strain (ACS), wherein performance deteriorates markedly, leading to a loss of situational awareness and control, and decrements in team cooperativity. ACS leads to physiological changes driven by sympathetic system activation, including i ...

  5. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Sonalysts, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    In this project, Sonalysts will team with the University of North Dakota to establish the feasibility of a deployable, unobtrusive suite of sensors and data processing approaches collectively known as Cognitively-Oriented Physiological Indicators of Load, Operational performance, and Tension (CO-PILOT). CO-PILOT will provide real-time indicators of operator state that can be used to inform adaptiv ...

  6. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Cognionics, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    This STTR project aims to assess the feasibility of using laryngeal EMG to detect operator workload and strain. Phase I will develop a wearable neckband device positioning an array of laryngeal EMG electrodes plus additional sensors for measuring masseter EMG, heart rate variability, GSR and estimated relative blood pressure. The neckband will be optimized to be both wearable, comfortable and resi ...

  7. Optimizing Human-Automation Team Workload through a Non-Invasive Detection System

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST16C003

    We propose to investigate, in collaboration with the Massachusetts General Hospital Voice Center and Altec, Inc., the application of surface electromyography (sEMG) to assessing cognitive workload, strain, and overload. Specifically, sEMG sensors placed on the face and neck will detect emotional/motor responses to workload strain. The proposed effort will build on the substantial sEMG experience o ...

  8. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches (16-RD-863)

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: DTRA16A004

    Compact Electromagnetic Pulse Module (EMP) capable of being arranged in series-parallel planar or cylindrical arrays is needed to simulate nuclear weapon effects. High gain optically triggered photoconductive semiconductor switches (PCSS) based on Gallium arsenide (GaAs) with low timing jitter enables the development of planar or phased arrays of modular EMP or High Power Microwave (HPM) sources. ...

  9. Technology Transitioning of Phase II Scalable Adaptive Fiber-Array Elements (SAFARE)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: AF12BT13

    The ongoing SAFARE STTR Phase II effort is focused on improving essential components for the high-energy coherently combined, fiber-based phased-array laser weapon system prototypes developed under the DARPA Excalibur program and significantly reduce system size, weight and required electrical power (SWaP). Fiber-array based laser weapons technology promises high power efficiency and reduced SWaP, ...

  10. Compact Laser Drivers for Photoconductive Semiconductor Switches

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: DTRA16A004

    A compact laser driver will allow photoconductive semiconductor switches to be used in small EMP simulator "building blocks" (EMPBB). Combined with a battery powered on-board pulsed power system, these EMPBBs will allow the construction of flexible EMP test facilities with nothing more than a single fiber optic timing connection to each EMPBB.
