  1. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: SB102002

    An Android based solution for presenting the Radio Telephone Operator (RTO) with a graphical view of the radio frequency (RF) field intensity distribution in urban environments is proposed. The field distribution is presented as a semi-transparent overlay to a satellite image. The solution will provide the RTO with a tool for selecting the best transmitter location based on knowledge of nearby R ...

  2. Enabling Electrostatic Painting of Automotive Polymers with Low Cost Carbon Nanofibers

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: 06NCERP1

    Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) investigated the use of inexpensive carbon nanofiber (CNF) to impart electrical conductivity to polymer systems to allow the use of electrostatic painting (ESP) techniques to paint these polymers in the same manner as metals without the need for a solvent- based primer coat. The production of polymer composites that can be electrostatically painted with no additional p ...

  3. Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels from Biomass Materials

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT INC            Topic: 06NCERD3

    Nearly all of the liquid fuels used in internal combustion engines (gasoline and diesel) in the United States are made from fossil fuels. Two rapidly growing liquid biofuel alternatives are ethanol and biodiesel. However, both processes are limited to specific crop products (corn starch and soybean oil) that have higher market value. Bulk plant byproducts (e.g., food processing wastes, mash/mea ...

  5. Liquid Hydrocarbon Fuels from Biomass Materials

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY MANAGEMENT INC            Topic: N/A

    Nearly all of the liquid fuels used in internal combustion engines (gasoline and diesel) in the U.S. are made from fossil fuels. Two rapidly growing liquid biofuel alternatives are ethnol and biodiesle. However, both processes are limited to specific crop products (corn starch and soybean oil) that have higher market value. Bulk plant byproducts (e.g., food processing wastes, mash/meal byproduc ...

  6. Functional Chrome Coatings on Hard to Access, Internal Surfaces of Industrial Parts from an Environmentally Benign Trivalent Chromium Bath

    SBC: Faraday Technology, Inc.            Topic: B

    "Faraday Technology, Inc., with the guidance of our commercialization partner the Boeing Company, propose a drop-in-replacement chrome plating process that can coat complex, hard to access surfaces such as the interior of landing gear, using an environmentally benign trivalent chromium bath. The proposed green manufacturing process meets the stated EPA need by improving existing processes while u ...

  7. Light-Activated Shape Memory Composite

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: ST061007

    Future systems such as morphing aircraft will adapt and reconfigure to accommodate mission needs. These shape changes must allow change while still bearing substantial loads. Fiber-reinforced composites are the preferred reinforcement materials due to their mechanical and lightweight properties suited for meeting the requirements of morphing systems. Although thermally activated shape memory comp ...

  8. Smoke and Flame Resistant Large Core Plastic Optical Fiber for Highly Efficient Light Distribution in Navy Vessels

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB052003

    The technical problem being addressed in this work is the material selection and development of fabrication processes that will yield a scalable large core plastic optical fiber product that meets the specific flame, smoke, fume and toxicity requirements for use on board US Navy ships. Use of the fire retardant fibers coupled with efficient fiber optic light distribution systems will enable the ...

  9. Arc Source Multi-Layer Coatings to Doublelighting System Lifetimes without Affecting Performance

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB052004

    We will determine how to effectively apply an organometallic external barrier coating to arc tubes to prevent or delay their failure by devitrification. The most important consideration is source life, followed by lumen maintenance, the spectral output and cost. The coating process will be the Microdyne system demonstrated in Phase I. The alternate processes of CLCB and dip-coating will be investi ...

  10. Human-Machine Interfaces for Coordination Decision Support in Tactical Settings

    SBC: JXT Applications, Inc.            Topic: ST051002

    Mobile Army commanders must frequently adjust their planned course of action (COA) in response to events and changes in the battlespace. Advances in the battlefield information infrastructure and related technologies provide new opportunities for the development of human-machine collaborative systems to support decision-making in this context. The objective of this effort is to develop a prototy ...
