  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. Novel Polymer Nanocomposite Processing

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: 20

    72212-The uniform dispersion of nanoceramic filler particles within a polymer matrix, for producing high quality polymer/ceramic nanocomposites, is a very time-and energy-intensive process. The development of efficient methods for uniformly dispersing nanoceramic inclusions, which are well-adhered to the polymer throughout the polymer matrix, and for fabricating parts from such composites at low ...

  6. Automated Video Surveillance at Night

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: ST031004

    Visual surveillance systems have been used for decades to deter and detect crime by providing extra sets of eyes to security personnel. However, using human surveillance operators to monitor banks of video displays is problematic for many reasons, including operator fatigue, complacency and the inherent difficulty of detecting all objects of interest when many video streams have to be monitored si ...

  7. GPS-Based Tracking System for Trauma Patients

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: A04T026

    This proposed effort develops a NAVSYS Medical GPS Locator System that addresses two areas of concern in tracking the location and coordinating timing of events for trauma patients. Determining the timing of the treatment of trauma patients is an important aspect of increased survivability. Additionally, victims of mass trauma events may be sent to diverse locations for treatment. If the event ...

  8. Organic Based Flexible Transistors and Electronic Devices

    SBC: Organicid, Inc.            Topic: AF04T010

    Objective The objective of this project is to develop an organic solution-based CMOS process capable of producing printed RFID tags. Key to this objective is to optimize the n-type semiconductor and dielectric materials developed in Phase I, and to integrate these materials into a complete process line. The Approach CMOS utilizes p-type and n-type transistors to significantly reduce static power d ...

    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 ...

  10. MEMS Colloid Thruster Array

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T005

    Colloid thruster technology continues to be attractive for spacecraft propulsion, especially since its specific impulse can be many times greater than even the best bi-propellant chemical rocket. However, the technology was abandoned in the 1970s due to low charge-to-mass ratios, which lead to excessively high voltages and large inert mass fractions. The recent advent of microelectromechanical s ...
