  2. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  3. Hadamard Transform Time-of-Flight Mass Spectrometry

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF03T003

    This Phase II STTR research project is designed to further develop a mass spectrometry technology employing Hadamard Transform (HT) multiplexing techniques with the goal of developing a relatively simple, linear, rugged, HT time-of-flight (HT-TOF) mass spectrometer that offers high sensitivity and rapid mass spectra storage rates. Southwest Sciences and Stanford University will focus their effor ...

  4. Tactical Biorefinery for Forward Fuel Production

    SBC: DEFENSE LIFE SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: A04T019

    The objective of this proposal is to fabricate a hybrid Tactical Biorefinery prototype capable of converting field waste into usable energy in the forward battle-space. The prototype will solve two problems simultaneously by providing onsite energy production for expeditionary operations while relieving field commanders of the operational and financial costs of logistics waste disposal. This oppor ...

  5. Cellulase Production and Increased Biomass in Mutlifunction Crop Plants

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: 32a

    75884-To increase the domestic supply of clean, renewable energy sources, the President¿s National Energy Policy and the U.S. Department of Energy¿s Strategic Plan contemplate the increased production of hydrogen as a fuel. The production of hydrogen from plant biomass is especially attractive because it is a renewable energy resource and because it recycles atmospheric carbon dioxide. However ...

  6. Joint Visualization Module (JVM) for Enhanced Human-Computer Capabilities (Human-Computer Visualization)

    SBC: SDS INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: A04T002

    Training visualization skills can be difficult and inefficient in either the real world with natural representations or in a classroom with analog representations for several reasons. Field training requires physical relocation of trainees and is constrained by the nature of terrain and logistics available at the physical sites. Similarly, analog methods are often restricted to inflexible pictoria ...

  7. Shear Stress Sensor Using Shape Memory Films

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: AF03T010

    There is a need for a low profile, simple, accurate, localized, responsive sensor to measure shear stress in fluid flow. The unusual properties of shape memory alloys, and of Ni2MnGa in particular, suggest they could be sensing elements for shear. In recent years, single crystal films of Ni2MnGa have been grown by Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE). Once released from their substrate, these films hav ...

  8. An Optimized Spatial Audio System for Virtual Training Simulations

    SBC: VRSONIC, INC.            Topic: N04T014

    VR based training systems have the advantage of being portable, deployable and reconfigurable and can thus provide effective training in the field where it's most needed. Regrettably, these systems have not yet been shown to be effective in providing positive training transfer in real world applications. Analysis of such systems suggests that in order to be effective, they must fully integrate the ...

  9. DIF- A Language for Dataflow Graph Specification and Exchange

    SBC: Management Communications & Control, I            Topic: ST031003

    The DIF project addresses a significant impediment to broad industry acceptance of dataflow technology in high performance computing, namely the lack of a standard language for dataflow application programs. Despite the rich body of Academic and Defense Department sponsored R&D in dataflow programming and computing technology, data flow programming has not been widely adopted by the parallel compu ...

  10. High Energy Density Capacitors for Navy Pulse Power Applications

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N03T007

    Advanced power systems for Future Naval Capability depend on capacitor banks as the first stage of pulsed power. Significant electrical energy is necessary to support a range of applications including electromagnetic armor, electromagnetic gun and electro-mechanical aircraft launch systems. It is anticipated that each electric ship will require up to one trillion joules of capacitor energy. Adv ...
