  1. High-Strength Low-Cost Polymer Fibers for Protective Clothing and Equipment, Shelters and Airdrop Equipment

    SBC: INNEGRITY LLC            Topic: A06171

    While fibers with very high strength have been achieved using aramid polymers and ultra high molecular weight polyethylene, and these fibers have found great use in ballistic and other applications, their penetration into other applications has been limited due to the high cost associated with their manufacture. This proposal is directed toward using commodity materials and a novel processing tec ...

  2. Simulation Tools for Strain Engineering, Manufacturing and Design of Novel Optical and Electronic Superlattice Materials and Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06075

    The overall objective of this Phase I proposal is to create a model based on molecular dynamics (MD) that can predict the specific Quantum Dot Superlattice (QDSL) heteroepitaxial structures that will grow, given various factors such as growth temperature, flux rate, and spacer thickness. AlGaN/GaN heterostructures have attracted a great deal of theoretical and experimental interest because of thei ...

  3. Type II Superlattices for LWIR Detectors and Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A06122

    Long wavelength infrared (LWIR) detectors are highly needed for night vision and threat warning applications. The InAs/GaSb Type II heterostructure system offers unique design flexibility for new innovative detectors. Type strained layer superlattice (SLS) detectors have been demonstrated with cutoff wavelengths ranging from 3 to 32 microns. This technology has shown performance comparable to HgCd ...

  4. Counter Mortar Technologies

    SBC: Newtec Services Group, Inc            Topic: A06207

    Small caliber projectiles, explosively driven fragments and micro-sized (cm3) warheads fabricated from Metastable Interstitial Composite (MIC) reactive materials are emerging as potential payloads for countermeasure systems against Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (RAM) threats. Some MIC composites have demonstrated energy values up to 10 kcal per gram, a level exceeding that of Tri-Nitro Toluene (TN ...

  5. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: NANOSPHERE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    1. Abstract. The Mirkin group at Nortwestern University has developed methods for exquisitely sensitive analyte detection that rely upon forming hybridized arrays of nucleic acid-derivatized gold nanoparticles. These methods lend themselves immediately to colorimetric detection and dipstick-style applications. The hybridized nanoparticles are (quite literally) ‘blue,’ the separated nanopar ...

  6. Colorimetric Sensors for Chemical and Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: ANDALYZE, INC.            Topic: A06T024

    We aim to construct litmus paper-like colorimetric sensors for detection and quantification of chemical and biological agents in water by performing combinatorial selection of DNA aptamers for cyanobacteria toxins such as microcystins and saxitoxins. Aptamers are single stranded DNA that can bind target molecules with high affinity and specificity. Such DNA aptamers are biocompatible, biodegradabl ...

  7. Rapid Detection Nano-Sensors for Biological Warfare Agents in Buildings and HVAC Systems

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A06T026

    Currently there is no real-time technology to detect airborne biological warfare agents (BWAs). Conventional technologies require 30 minutes to 1 hour. We propose to design, fabricate and test user-friendly, low-logistical-load biosensors capable of the real-time (~ 30 s. or less) detection and identification of airborne BWAs with high sensitivity and specificity for all classes of bioagents – ...

  8. Simulated Cognitive Leadership Challenges for Professional Forums

    SBC: COMMAND PERFORMANCE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05CR2

    Simulated leadership challenges are particularly effective in generating the discussion and interpersonal connections that are the heart of the Army Professional Forum (APF) and the source of its impact. Because asynchronous discussion on immediately relevant topics is critical to forum impact, efforts to enhance simulated leadership challenges must have knowledge sharing and professional conversa ...

  9. Development of On-Demand Non-Polar and Semi-Polar Bulk Gallium Nitride Materials for Next Generation Electronic and Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: Sensor Electronic Technology, Inc.            Topic: A06T019

    GaN-based electronic and optoelectronic devices have demonstrated superior properties for applications involving visible and ultraviolet light emitting diodes (LEDs), laser diodes, and high-power electronic devices. Despite the significant improvement in the performance of these devices, they still suffer from strong built-in electrostatic field due to spontaneous and piezoelectric polarizations, ...

  10. Optimal Design of Compact Fuel Cell Hybrid Power Systems

    SBC: INTERACTIVE DATA VISUALIZATION            Topic: A06T014

    This work will use numerical methods to determine optimal design parameters for a compact hybrid fuel cell power system driven by a statistically determined load profile. Detailed physics-based models will be used to represent the behavior of the components in the hybrid system. The components considered in the hybrid system for Phase I will be a PEM fuel cell, Li-ion batteries and electrochemical ...
