  1. Enhanced Buried Explosive Detection System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A02037

    In this three Phase program, ADA Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel, active trace explosives sampling system/method that will be easily adapted for use with existing commercially available explosive detection sensors. This will lead to a generic-interface sampling device that will directly couple with currently deployed trace explosives detection sensors. The active samplin ...

  2. Fluorescent Coated Filters for Detection of Biological Warfare Agent Microorganisms in Water


    Reliable and sensitive detection of biowarfare agents (BWAs) such as Bacillus anthracis, Yersinia pestis, Francisella tularensis, ricin, botulinum toxin, etc. is an important challenge for both military operations and domestic anti-terrorism efforts. We are proposing to develop a biomimetic polymer coating, containing receptors for BWA targets, that becomes fluorescent when exposed to samples con ...

  3. Low Cost Molded Optics for Small Caliber Projectiles

    SBC: Cdm Optics, Inc.            Topic: A02022

    The Phase I effort demonstrated the feasibility of a low cost IR imaging system for use in high lethality, fire-and-forget projectiles. The imaging system was designed specifically for the Army's Light Fighter Lethality (LFL) Autonomous Seeker Projectile. The Phase I work combined two innovative technologies, an optical systems design process and a moldable IR material, to create a low cost opti ...

  4. Optical Components to Reduce Retroreflection from Uncooled Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Cdm Optics, Inc.            Topic: A03105

    The use of visible and long wave infrared (LWIR) sensors is limited in many covert environments by their unacceptably high reflectivity. The high reflectivity makes these systems susceptible to detection by search CW laser systems. There are many traditional methods for reducing optical reflection, but most adversely affect the final system image quality and are not cost effective for large volu ...

  5. Virtual Prototyping Architecture

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: A02244

    To continue increasing the capabilities of technology, it is important to develop new materials and components. However, the development cycle of a new material or component can be very time consuming and costly. We propose to implement a modular architecture for a Virtual Systems Integration Lab (VSIL) that allows designers to quickly create simulations for their systems. The VSIL can increase th ...

  6. Development of a Human/Robot Control Interface

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A02035

    The ability of remote robotic vehicles to effectively achieve their targeted tasks is dependent, in large part, on how well they can be controlled. The human machine interface and related controls are critical to successful tele-operated and semi-autonomous operations. In Phase I, AnthroTronix, Inc. showed the feasibility of two interface concepts for robot control: 1) An instrumented glove w ...

  7. Compact, Efficient, and Robust Eyesafe Ladar Transmitter

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03151

    The US Army has identified the need for a compact, lightweight, self-contained, electrically efficient, ruggedizable laser transmitter for 3-D imaging ladar applications. The transmitter cost, weight, footprint, and performance requirements (>5 W, 20-30 kHz, 5-20 ns) cannot be simultaneously met using current transmitter technology based on bulk Er, Ho, Tm lasers, OPOs, OPAs or Raman lasers. Conv ...

  8. Ultra High Efficiency Blower System for Engine and Vehicle Applications

    SBC: Engineered Machined Products, Inc.            Topic: A02245

    The objective of this program is to define, develop and demonstrate the best methods for moving air for different vehicle systems. The work will begin with an evaluation of all traditional air moving devices and find possible ways to improve efficiency and performance. Air movement technologies, to be evaluated include axial fans and blowers, radial fans, mix-flow blowers, and centrifugal (squir ...

  9. Small Multi-decade Communications and Electronic Warfare (EW) Antenna

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A03080

    The RF bandwidth from 20 MHz to 2000 MHz is of particular interest to the US Army as it encompasses various communications, sensors, and electronic countermeasure systems. FIRST RF has developed a passive antenna technology to meet the demands of the US Army program. There are two basic antenna approaches utilizing the same FIRST RF antenna technology. One utilizes monopole technology while the ...

  10. Wheels over Track Optimization for Future Combat System (FCS) Application

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A02222

    The primary objective of Phase II is to use refined computer models developed during phase I to help identify performance characteristics of band tracked vehicles, select a wheeled vehicle platform suitable for the application, and specify band track components. Instrumented testing will then follow using band track components in the laboratory for initial testing, followed by a full vehicle fiel ...
