  1. A Trans-Atmospheric Turbojet Engine

    SBC: Hmx, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A novel turbojet based propulsion system is described that is capable of continuous operation from takeoff to orbital insertion. This engine concept utilizes a conventional turbojet as its core with a dual function inlet that can accommodate bothatmospheric air and cryogenic liquid oxidizer. By varying the percentage of liquid oxidizer injected, the engine can operate either in turbojet mode, roc ...

  2. A Trans-Atmospheric Turbojet Engine

    SBC: Hmx, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Mass Injection Pre-Compressor Cooling (MIPCC) is a promising technology which can permit convention jet engines, normally limited in speed and altitude, to propel aircraft to substantially higher altitudes and velocities. By injecting coolant ahead of thecompressor and using its heat of vaporization to cool inlet gasses, the engine can operate at substantially higher velocities without exceeding ...

  3. Ad Hoc Human Information Nets for Asymmetric Threat Surveillance

    SBC: MAYA DESIGN            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal outlines a system that leverages the installed base of personal communications devices (cell phones, handhelds, two-way pagers) and adds a simple mechanism that lets people generate short structured reports of suspicious activity.We propose a method of supplying flexibly structured data objects ("u-forms") from the field by extending existing personal information systems to supply ...

  4. Adaptive Command and Collaboration within Network-Centric Operations using Insight from Contextualized Network Visualization, Analysis

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB043042

    The evolution of network-centric environments increasingly provides access to more data and collaborators relevant to decision making. Unfortunately, it also means the decision-maker increasingly needs to efficiently and effectively utilize that data in order to stay competitive. In network-centric warfare the consequences of less than optimal performance can be extremely serious. With the deploym ...

  5. Application of Turbine Engines in Naval Special Warfare (NSW) Craft

    SBC: MARINE TURBINE TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective is to modify and test gas turbine engines presently installed in/on marine craft to demonstrate that by adapting technology used on street legal vehicles can be used to reduce the heat and noise levels in marine craft. Whether or not the IR15dB level or lower, and the above water acoustic/noise level to 60dB level or lower can be achieved, is a matter that can only be demostrated by ...

  6. Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: SB041005

    The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a prototype sensor system for measuring the concentrations of unlawful or hazardous materials in shipping con ...

  7. Development of DNA Sequencing Instrumentation Based on Microfluidics and Molecular Level Sensors

    SBC: SEIRAD, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SeiraD is working to develop an innovative DNA sequencing device incorporating silicon-based microfluidics and molecular level sensors. The US government has invested over $2,000,000,000 to sequence the first human genome. The full potential of DNAsequence information will only be realized when multiple genomes are rapidly and inexpensively sequenced. The SeiraD approach is based on research co ...

  9. Extreme Environment Hand-Wear system

    SBC: Kreamer Sports, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Our Phase I study proved the feasibility of using monofilament carbon tow and thin resistant wire in a glove system to provide an adequate heat source to keep a soldier's hands comfortable in extreme cold temperatures while retaining hand dexterity andtactility. Our objectives during Phase II are to (1) incorporate our heat generation process into a super thin, non-melting, flame-rerardant materi ...

  10. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use require that robots collaborate directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough progres ...
