  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  2. A Compact Visual-Odometry Sensor for UGVs

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A09203

    This is a proposal to design a compact visual odometry sensor that can be mounted on unmanned ground vehicles. Visual odometry (VO) is a technique that estimates the ego-motion from images perceived by moving cameras. A self-contained visual odometry sensor would provide several significant benefits to unmanned ground vehicles, including: 1) providing position information to platforms that do not ...

  3. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

    SBC: Enogetek, Inc.            Topic: A08T011

    U.S. Military operations have come to depend more and more on unmanned vehicles (unmanned undersea vehicles UUVs and unmanned air vehicles UAVs) to carry out numerous missions. However, the transit distance for many of these missions is often well limited by the energy storage capacity of their power systems. Fuel cell, particularly SOFC that can be fed directly with reformate, looks promising. Co ...

  5. A Point-of-Care Field Assay for Dengue Viruses

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A09155

    Dengue viruses are transmitted by mosquito vectors throughout tropical and subtropical regions of Asia, Africa, and Central and South America. Four serotypes circulate, DEN-1 through -4, and immunity to one type does not preclude illness from another type and can exacerbate subsequent disease with another type. While dengue fever can be a mild infection, dengue hemorrhagic fever (DHF) and dengue s ...

  6. A Universal Bio-Signature Detection Array for Species Identification of Leishmania and Sand Fly Vector

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A10118

    Leishmaniasis is a disease endemic to several tropical and sub-tropical regions of the world which is spread by the bite of female sandfly carrying parasites known as Leishmania. Pathological manifestations of infection range from itchy skin to disfiguring ulcerous sores and death, requiring varying treatment strategies. Deployed US military personnel in regions of the Middle East and Sub-Saharan ...

  7. Adjustable Autonomy for Intelligent Operation of Mobile Manipulators

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A11aT032

    In recent years, the military has been integrating robotic systems into tasks previously performed entirely manually by soldiers. Examples include explosive ordnance disposal (EOD), surveillance and reconnaissance, urban search and rescue (USAR), chemical, biological, and nuclear (CBN) operations, and medical assistance and evacuation. A typical application is for a soldier (remote operator) to te ...

  8. Advanced low-power personnel/vehicle detecting radar for smart unattended ground sensor/munition systems

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: A09113

    As an essential part of the roadmap to develop an ultra low power radar system, Mustang Technology Group proposes to design, fabricate and test circuit boards that demonstrate a reduction in power of the current VIPER radar by more than half.

  9. Advanced Molded Glass Lenses

    SBC: Rochester Precision Optics, LLC            Topic: A10020

    There is a critical need for lighter, smaller, inexpensive, and higher performance optical components in many military programs such as Thermal Weapon Sight (TWS), Enhanced Night Vision Goggle (ENVG), Monocular Night Vision Device (MNVD), Aviators Night Vision Imaging System (ANVIS), Sniper Night Sight (SNS), Clip-on Sniper Night Sight, and Lightweight Laser Designator Rangefinder (LLDR). Precisio ...

  10. Advanced Rotary Diesel Engine Fuel Injection System for Unmanned and Manned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: L.K. Industries, Inc.            Topic: A11064

    This proposal consists of developing and demonstrating an advanced, high pressure, fuel injection system for the rotary engine for aerospace and/or ground application. The intent is to develop an advanced fuel injection system so that the rotary engine can run on heavy fuel (diesel, DF-2 or JP-8). We will investigate the use of piezo-actuators due to their response time and hence their precision ...
