  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Plasmonic MEMS Sensor Array

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: A10aT002

    Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the curren ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Statically Operated Ramjet

    SBC: Red River Military Systems, Inc.            Topic: A11133

    The need for greater payload and range for tactical missiles is unsatisfied by current propulsion concepts. Greater payload and range is necessary for increased operational adaptability of Warfighters. The Grossi Statically-Operating Ejector Ramjet (SOERJ) engine combines the high speed performance of a ramjet and low speed, or static performance of a solid rocket motor which results in greater ...

  7. Innovative Semi-Active Laser (SAL) Signal Processing Techniques in Noisy Environments

    SBC: Gleason Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12084

    This proposed Phase II effort is a continuation of the SBIR Phase I contract (W31P4Q-13-0014) which identified several potential areas of improvement in signal processing for semi-active laser seekers in noisy, dirty-battlefield or countermeasure environments. A list of innovative processing algorithms to address these issues was down-selected to the four highest pay-off innovations: Smart Track ...

  8. Semantic Framework for Collaborative Analysis and Knowledge Exploration (CAKE)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD11DR4

    Knowledge Based Systems, Inc. (KBSI) proposes to design, build, and validate a semantic framework for Collaborative Analysis and Knowledge Exploration (CAKE). CAKE provides the following innovative capabilities (1) Automated ontology-driven semantic tagging of multi-source text and image data; (2) Semantic information fusion and collaborative information analysis for enhanced situational awarenes ...

  9. Inorganic Oxide Supported Biomimetic Membranes with Ion Channels for DMFC Application

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    Methanol crossover of commercial Nafion membranes is a major issue that results in lowering of the efficiency of direct methanol fuel cells (DMFCs). A biomimetic approach for the membrane design using either proton conducting nanochannels and/or nanothin barrier layer can produce DMFC membranes with highly selective and fast proton transfer. In the Phase I project, Lynntech demonstrated the feasib ...

  10. Rapid anomaly detection and tracking via compressive time-spectra measurement

    SBC: Inview Technology Corporation            Topic: A12aT007

    The main goal of the Phase II program is to build and test an operational prototype compressive sensing (CS) camera capable of high-speed change detection. Based on the algorithmic development, hardware modeling and simulation achievements of Phase I, we have defined a real-time CS framework that will be implemented in Phase II in an operational prototype. This framework, similar to Phase I, begin ...
