  1. 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 ...

  2. Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T021

    A new material and processing technology is proposed that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing lightweight mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, and DoD-sponsored space programs. There is a significant amount of research devoted to developing materials and processes for space-born mirrors and ground test use ...

  3. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An enabling technology for the further advancement of gelled propulsion is the development of tools to render the development of propellant formulation ...

  4. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Military helmets are designed based on costly and time consuming laboratory ballistic tests, firing range, and forensic data. Until now advanced medical imaging and computational modeling tools have not been adequately utilized in the design and optimization of military helmets. The overall objective of this project is to develop 3D medical imaging techniques for the brain ballistic injury model a ...

  5. Optimal Training System

    SBC: Emt, Inc.            Topic: AF04T014

    The ability to train novice operators on a variety of tasks through automated training systems provides a cost effective and timely solution for a number of applications. The training regimen required for military personnel lends itself to automated training systems. In order to overcome some of the challenges and shortfalls of the traditional intelligent training systems, a strong normative or ...

  6. Development of a Portable Breath Analysis System Based on a Novel Electronic Nose Microsensor

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: AF04T017

    Significant recent research has shown that breath biomarkers are excellent indicators of oxidative stress caused by conditions ranging from radiation exposure to COPD. Current techniques for collection, concentration, and analysis of exhaled breath do not support real-time analysis, or require complex and bulky equipment. Streamline Automation, LLC will develop a portable Breath BioDetector in p ...

  7. NOVEL MICROFLUIDIC BASED BIO-INSPIRED BATTERY

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: ARMY03T22

    Our Phase II goal is to develop (model, design, fabricate and test) a miniaturized biofuel cell capable of generating energy from biomass to power the OFW sensor suite. Phase I goals were successfully met by demonstrating a prototype using glucose as fuel. In contrast to conventional technologies, this biobattery promises to be compact/lightweight, require little/no logistical support (re-supply ...

  8. Low-cost, multi-spectral frequency augmenter for exo-atmospheric ballistic missile targets

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

    A specialty coating, adaptable to existing and future modular MDA target systems and survivable in exo-atmospheric environments, may be achieved by combining contemporary indium tin oxide (ITO) appliqués onto a surface capable of achieving luminescence and hue levels found in adjacent backgrounds. This active coating will exploit known vulnerabilities found in interceptor infrared and visual scan ...

  9. Design and Testing of a Water Based Fire Extinguishing System for On-Board Hydrogen Peroxide Fires

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: MDA04T004

    The Air Force has demonstrated that a water is capable of extinguishing comparable H2O2 oxidizer fires with 23 pounds of water vs 67 pounds of halon. Recent advances in sensor technology make it possible to detect an H2O2 leak prior to ignition, or to rapidly detect ignition in order to initiate fire protection system water flow. Recent findings by Streamline Automation also indicate that fire e ...

  10. All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

    SBC: ERC, INC.            Topic: AF04T003

    During Phase I of the proposed program, ERC-Incorporated proposes to identify novel promising polynitrogen candidates by means of theoretical calculations. Furthermore, preliminary tests will be carried out to explore the feasibility of synthesizing the most promising candidates. High-nitrogen compounds constitute a second area of significant interest. It is well known that the insertion of one he ...
