  3. Non-Pneumatic Tire for On-Highway and Off-Road Mobility

    SBC: INDIANA TOOL & MFG. CO., INC.            Topic: A18101

    The purpose of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility, through modeling and simulation, of integrating engineered polyhedral Phase Transforming Cellular Matrix (PXCM) materials as a dynamic, elastically deformable solution for non-pneumatic tires that can; 1) resist loss of mobility due to hazards that include ballistic/explosive threats, and road debris, 2) extend capability allowing the ...

  4. High-Speed Image Processing in Heavily Degraded Environments Using a Machine Learning Classifier

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A17046

    Driving ground vehicles in heavily degraded visual environments brings significant risk since course corrections cannot be made safely without visual cues. Infrared imagery can improve visibility in degraded visual environments, however when heavily degraded, this method alone is insufficient. Obscurants and noise can be rapidly categorized and suppressed in real-time by having an artificial intel ...

  5. Multi-Spectral Threat Warning Adjunct Sensor

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: A17052

    EPIR and Brimrose propose to design and fabricate multiband infrared adjunct (MIRA) sensors to enhance the detection/identification capability of the existing aviation-threat warning systems. Four spectrometers, arranged in a linear array, are designed to cover the wavelength range from ultraviolet to long-wave infrared. Each spectrometer is an integration of an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) ...

  6. Surface Haptic Technology for Geospatial Display

    SBC: Tanvas, Inc.            Topic: A15049

    The goal of this development effort is to provide warfighters with inexpensive methods to view geospatial intelligence information on a hand-held tablet through their sense of touch. This allows eyes-free and silent operation without generating light. This proposal deals with two surface haptic display technologies. Variable-friction displays create haptic effects by varying the coefficient of fri ...

  7. Advanced Materials for Gamma Spectrometry

    SBC: Field Viewers Ltd.            Topic: A17138

    We propose to examine the approaches for producing a single specifimen of the Cd1-xZnxSeyTe1-y material for gamma spectrometry. The key success criteria for the growth is the detector will be used as grown, implying no mining of the parts around subgrain boundries will be required. The outcome of such a growth is streamlined production process for the detectors. In phase II Field Viewers will use ...

  10. Adaptation of Ferrium M54 for personal armor

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A16065

    QuesTek Innovations will continue to pursue its approach of ausforming Ferrium M54 to adapt it for personal armor applications. Technical feasibility was demonstrated during the Phase I program through novel material processing at an intermediate scale, characterization, and testing. Phase II will involve full scale production of material as well as the development of process-structure-property re ...
