  1. Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART)

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Williams-Pyro, Inc. (WPI) has designed and successfully demonstrated a proof-of-concept of the Distributed Automatic Reconfigurable Transponder (DART) that will be capable of achieving distributed multi-nodal voice/data communication for fire fighters. In Phase 2 we will focus on developing a fully functional system that reduces communication failure while maintaining a robust and flexible system. ...

  2. Safe, Backpackable Method For Field Neutralization of Small Arms

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: ST061010

    This Phase I STTR effort involves harnessing the power of accelerated corrosion for the purpose of safely neutralizing small arms caches. A key part of the fight against irregular forces is finding their hidden small arms caches and either removing or destroying them. When removal is not possible or practical, destruction in place is the alternative. During Phase I, Lynntech, in collaboration w ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: R*BAT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Special Operations forces (SOF) operate in all weather conditions. It has identified a need for a micro-cooling system that can be vehicle mounted and man-portable, as well as provide a capability to cool vehicle mounted communications and electronics equipment. To meet the needs of SOF the system must be small, lightweight, quiet, low power, and gasless. We propose a compact micro-cooling system ...

  5. Lightweight Solar-Regenerative Energy Storage for High Altitude Airships

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB052024

    Systems and Processes Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will build and test a solar-regenerative energy storage (RES) system for high-altitude airship applications scaled to provide 160 kW-hr of energy storage with a 16-hour maximum annual discharge and 24-hour charge/discharge cycle. System design incorporates low-loss power conversion and management that maximizes power delivery efficiency and impr ...

  6. Novel Low-cost Methods for Fabricating Compact, Vertically Integrated MEMS

    SBC: VISM CORP.            Topic: SB043036

    We propose to demonstrate tunable Fabry-Perot filter (TFPF) for hyperspectral imaging sub-systems that can be integrated in surveillance, target recognition and threat warning systems. The MEMS TFPF employs a novel electrostatic actuator made that provides high accuracy tuning with compactness, low-weight, digital tuning, and high speed.

  7. Miniature Netted Sensors

    SBC: WILLIAMSRDM, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06015

    Williams-Pyro proposes to develop an AccuTag Miniature Surveillance and Tracking System (Accu-MiSTS). Accu-MiSTS employs cluster management techniques and ad-hoc networking to provide a readily scalable architecture with which to perform comprehensive surveillance. A cluster is comprised of one supernode and up to 65,536 nodes, all of which are within the communication range of at least one other ...

  8. Biomolecular Construction of Nanostructures

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Biology provides a vast number of examples of nanostructures produced at a level of precision that is superior to those that we can produce in the laboratory The diversity of naturally occurring S-layers suggests these self-assembled structures aregenetically controlled and can therefore be manipulated though recombinant process. In the Phase I, Agave BioSystems successfully demonstrated that ...
