  1. Miniaturized Imaging Spectrometer Based on HgCdTe Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A12015

    Improvised explosive devices (IED) present extreme hazards for US armed service personnel; however, current standoff IED detection systems are far too expensive and bulky to be widely deployed in combat arenas. To protect our soldiers from this threat, EPIR Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a low-cost, man-portable miniaturized imaging spectrometer through coupling tunable micro-opto-electro-m ...

  3. Powder Fluidization Grenade (PFG) for Particulate Obscurant Dissemination

    SBC: HY-TEK MANUFACTURING CO., INC.            Topic: A11045

    The use of high explosive powder obscurant (PO) grenades can cause serious injury and death as well as unwanted collateral damage in the form of incendiary destruction. U.S Army's objective is to greatly mitigate these hazards and improve the overall powder yield, dissemination and performance of PO grenades while eliminating the use of traditional explosive materials. HMC has shown through i ...

  4. A 10 Kilowatt, Rankin Cycle Agricultural Waste to Energy Conversion Module Utilizing Ultra Micro Turbo-Alternators

    SBC: Fluidic microControls, Inc.            Topic: H

    In 2011, there were 60,000 dairy farms in the US. Of there, 56,600 had herds of fewer than 500 animals. Currently, manure digester installations are only considered economical for herds of at least 500 animals. There require turbine or diesel generator sets of 100 Kilowatt size and larger. The need exists for a smaller waste to energy conversion approach for implementation on small farms were ...

  5. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: RDMChem LLC            Topic: A14AT013

    Two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods represent all of the electrons in any molecule or material with only two electrons by replacing the wave function by the 2-RDM as the basic variable for quantum many-electron theory. The 2-RDM methods, developed by David Mazziotti at The University of Chicago with support from the Army Research Office, have polynomial scaling with system size, al ...

  6. Mobile Military CO2 Refrigeration

    SBC: Creative Thermal Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A14054

    As an SBIR Phase I effort, CTS proposes to develop a mobile containerized cold-storage facility, using CO2 as a refrigerant, capable of conditioning 2/3rds of a 20' container to 38?F and 1/3rd of the container to -5?F at an ambient of 135?F, with a coefficient of performance (COP) greater than one. The refrigeration system will also have 30% reserve capacity at these conditions. The individu ...

  8. Regenerable Air Filter Media for Adsorption of Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: SERIONIX            Topic: A11098

    Volatile organic compounds (VOCs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) both pose a significant threat to DoD personnel both in the field as well as in established infrastructure such as large buildings. Current VOC/TIC protection technologies suffer from incomplete removal of contaminants, high operating costs, and limitation to single-use only. Recent research

  10. Novel Textile for Use on Low Cost Parachutes Employing Trigger Technology to Rapidly Degrade

    SBC: Tex Tech Industries Inc.            Topic: A13047

    Parachutes are a vital technology for moving equipment, ammunition, and other supplies to the battlefield. Cargo parachutes are used to drop military equipment and supplies from aircraft. The U.S. Army currently uses Low Cost Aerial Delivery Systems (LCADS) parachutes for 99% of operational airdrops . These parachutes are made out of a low cost polypropylene material and are considered one-time-us ...
