  1. Design and Realization of a Dual Function OCM/MPM for Imaging TEMPs

    SBC: Distant Focus Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Regenerative medicine is an emerging, interdisciplinary field that will result in new engineered medical products. The introduction of a high-resolution, non-destructive imaging technique that is capable of penetrating deeply into the highly-scattering scaffold medium has the means to accelerate the development and commercial utilization of these novel materials. Multi-photon microscopy (MPM) is b ...

  2. Helicopter Remote Manipulation of External Slingloads (HERMES)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A05057

    Helicopter operations in low visibility conditions and sling load operations continue to add risk to aviation operations. If slingloads could be picked up without the need for a ground crew, lives could be saved. In addition, a sensor that can detect the location of a load would help in low visibility conditions. We propose to develop such a system. It will include the mechanical structures ne ...

  3. Development of an Ultra-Fast Optical Beam Scanner for Tactical Laser Radar (LADAR) Seeker

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A05142

    Optical scanners are used to control the position of a light beam in one or more orthogonal spatial dimensions. There is a strong need to develop seeker with increased ability to track and engage multiple fleeting targets at increased range. Optomechanical scanners and scanners based on liquid crystals (LC) can effectively scan laser beams but they have limited scanning speeds. voltage, optical ...

  4. A Fuzzy Integrated Navigation System (FINS)

    SBC: Archangel Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06053

    A Fuzzy Integrated Navigation System (FINS) is proposed consisting of a GPS, Inertial Measurement Unit (IMU) and Magnetic Sensing Unit (MSU). In addition to the traditional Inertial Navigation System composed of a tightly coupled GPS-IMU, a tightly coupled MSU-IMU is added along with Fuzzy Logic Adaptive Signal Processing (FLASP™) to process and blend all information. This creates a system whic ...

  5. High-throughput Direct Structural Screening for Drug Lead Compounds

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A06T032

    U.S. Government personnel deployed in tropical and neotropical regions continue to be at risk for developing malaria. Drug resistant malaria parasites are becoming more common in these areas, increasing the risk of American personnel developing a serious, life-threatening disease. Cross resistance between drugs is becoming much more common. Due to the emergence of drug resistance, derivates of k ...

  6. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Recent statistics from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) show that significant proportion of soldiers injured in blast explosion endure traumatic brain injury (TBI). At the same time our understanding of TBI mechanisms and protection against kinetic and blast

  7. Multiresolution Thermal Design/Signature Management Tool for Vehicle Electronics Packages

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A04247

    We propose to develop a multi-resolution software tool for thermal design and management of heat generated in vehicles by multiple electronics packages in close proximity. The software will interface with industry-standard thermal-signature code, MuSES (in collaboration with ThermoAnalytics) for efficient multi-functional capability. An innovative selective focusing feature will allow representati ...

  8. Development of Improved Performance, Low Toxic Hypergolic Fuel for Replacing Monomethylhydrazine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05134

    Monomethylhydrazine (MMH) is a widely employed fuel in hypergolic, bipropellant systems. Negative aspects of this fuel are its high toxicity and carcinogenic effects. Although gelling of fuel has solved many technical problems, its toxicity and carcinogenic nature is still a major concern. The task of developing a replacement fuel for MMH is constrained to those compounds that maintain or improv ...

  9. High-Fidelity Modeling Tools for Bone Conduction Communication Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T033

    Warfighters increasingly rely on radio communication equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. Current military communication gear involves headphones and acoustic microphones. Unfortunately, headphones cover the ears and deteriorate detection and localization of ambient sounds that may be important for tactical situations. They also prevent ear plug usage and n ...

  10. Weather Encounter Software Modeling Environment using Climatological and High-Resolution Weather Data

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06016

    Weather encounter models for missile and flight vehicle system requirements are presently based upon simplistic and often misrepresentative conditions, particularly with respect to the spatial and probabilistic depictions of rain, ice, snow, dust and other particulates. We propose to address this deficiency by incorporating regional, three-dimensional climatological weather databases within a scri ...
