  1. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Omm Scientific, Inc            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: This proposal sets out a plan to continue the method development for selective chemical oxidization of one amine of a polyamino, multi-heterocyclic class of energetic materials. The approach is based on screening one substrate (DAAzF) with many different oxidants under a variety of conditions including microwave heating to find those conditions where one amine group has been oxidized t ...

  2. Improved Combustion Efficiency and Reduction of Emissions of Compression Ignition Engines Using On-Board Non-Thermal Plasma Generated Hydrogen/Syngas

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT023

    The Department of Defense (DOD) accounts for over 21 million barrels of oil usage per day, with a majority of the fuel being appropriated to JP-8. Among the military"s various armed forces, the Army alone spends over $4.1 billion for energy, with a major portion of this also attributed to JP-8 jet fuel consumption for maintaining operational capability on a daily basis. Diesel generators are curre ...

  3. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...

  5. Self-Healing Non-Catalytic Multifunctional Composite Structure

    SBC: TEXAS HIGH ENERGY MATERIALS, LLC            Topic: N10AT007

    Areas of research relating to self-healing composites structures have been undertaken by well-known and respected research institutions under the auspices of the Department of Defense. Patent literature and public technical communique describe their novel engineering approaches using polymeric healing agents through suitable mechanisms. While these approaches have merit, the choices of materials u ...

  6. Safe High Voltage Cathode Materials for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: N11AT035

    A high-voltage, high-capacity, inexpensive cathode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is proposed. The cathode material employs carbon nanotubes and additional nanostructures to support efficient transport of Li ions. The resulting LIBs will support high transient and pulsed loads while offering enhanced safety and lifecycle performance. Proof-of-concept LIB cells were demonstrated in Phase ...

  7. Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA10002

    The vision of the Efficient Sensor Management for Optimal Multi-Task Performance (ES-MaTe) initiative is to develop technology that will enable C2BMC to plan and manage multiple sensor resources in order to support dynamic planning for defense against hostile multi-raid missile attack. BMDS uses multiple disparate and spatially separated sensors to support tracking, in flight target update of thre ...

  8. Multi-Spectral Scene Generator Upgrade

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA05049

    Abstract: Radiance Technologies will develop a Multi-Spectrum Scene Generator (MSSG) to support the testing requirements of current sensing technologies under development by the Missile Defense Agency (MDA). This MSSG will minimize the real-time computational requirements and reduce the nodal data transfer by utilizing a novel system architecture. The MSSG will interface with projection systems ...

  9. High Performance/Throughput, Low Latency and Low Power Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA) for Software Defined Radio (SDR) and Cognitive Radio (CR)

    SBC: GOOFYFOOT LABS LLC            Topic: A11043

    FPGAs are widely used in nearly every DoD electronics system because of their processing capabilities, low NRE costs, field programmability, and time to market advantages over ASICs. However, FPGAs"greatest strength reconfigurability is also the source of their low performance and high power consumption limiting functionality and battery life of mobile applications. GoofyFoot Labs has developed ...

  10. PROWL: Perception for Robotic Operation over Widespread Lighting

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: A10175

    In Phase I we designed and evaluated a thermal stereo prototype; however, rather than focusing on a nighttime-only deliverable in Phase II, we propose to combine our Phase I experience with stereo thermal sensing and our decades long experience with traditional outdoor stereo sensing to deliver a 24-hour, passive-sensing payload. We call this self-contained system PROWL (Perception for Robot ...
