  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Optical Windows from Nanostructured Ceramic Composites

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N04T008

    Future weapon and aircraft systems require IR windows and domes capable of withstanding greater heating rates, greater mechanical loads, and more severe rain and particle impact environments than can be withstood by sapphire. Nanostructured ceramic composites with grain size below 50 nm have the potential to achieve such performance. Synkera Technologies proposes the development of a new nanostr ...

  8. Multi-Modal Command Recognition for J-UCAS Direction

    SBC: DEVELOSOFT CORP.            Topic: N03T003

    An aircraft carrier’s flight deck is a thousand accidents waiting to happen… large, heavy aircraft must move nimbly about a maelstrom of men, vehicles, aircraft, and bombs. An aircraft moves safely only when the pilot understands the directors perfectly. Now take the pilot away... how can you achieve high sortie rates, reduced manning, and absolute safety with a “dumb” aircraft without th ...

  9. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...

  10. Optimal Training System

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: AF04T014

    Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due to resource constraints, experts’ use in training can be problematic. Using an optimal model of task performance subject to human constraints may be a more efficient way to develop models of skilled human performance for use in training, especially since optima ...
