  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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.

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Analysis of New WWVB Modulation Schemes for Future Broadcast

    SBC: XW, LLC dba Xtendwave            Topic: N/A

    This Phase 2 project targets the completion of the development of an improved system for the broadcasting of the WWVB signal, as a direct continuation of the Phase 1 project, which successfully validated the proposed approach through a feasibility study and analyses. Objectives of this project include the design of the new modulation scheme and protocol, the development of a new time-code generato ...

  7. A NOVEL OXYGEN SEPARATION AND STORAGE APPARATUS FOR UNDERWATER AND HIGH ALTITUDE FUEL CELL APPLICATIONS

    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 ...

  8. Anti-Reverse Engineering (RE) Techniques

    SBC: Crossfield Technology Llc            Topic: OSD10A04

    Crossfield intends to show an anti-reverse engineering methodology that encompasses several innovative features to thwart reverse engineering attempts by third parties. This anti-reverse engineering methodology exploits doped resistive paths (DRPs) in the substrate and/or at the poly-silicon transistor gate levels. They can be formed by overlaying dopant fields implanted with multiple energies an ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Asynchronous Network Signal Sensing and Classification Techniques

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: A11028

    This SBIR project will develop a distributed sensor network framework capable of synchronous/asynchronous automatic modulation classification (AMC) in a non-cooperative communication environment where the received signal is unknown and weak. During the Phase I of this effort, we will focus our attention to synchronous/asynchronous AMC based on a distributed decision fusion network using parallel f ...
