  1. Wireless Intelligent Sensor Platform for Emergency Responders

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit proposes to develop a reliable, low-cost, easy-to-install, self-monitoring, and self-expanding wireless communication system to enable remote monitoring and tracking of sensors on emergency first responders in hostile environments. The heart of the system will use a Zigbee wireless mesh networking IC for low power and low cost communications. By using a wireless mesh network, low power wir ...

  3. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  4. Real-Time Portable Neutron Spectroscopy

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: DTRA07002

    One of the critical gaps in homeland security is the inability to efficiently detect and identify kilogram-size samples of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM, uranium and transuranic elements). Unlike other forms of radiation produced by SNM (e.g. gamma rays), penetrating neutron emission is unique to fissionable material and difficult to obscure with passive shielding. The current state-of-the-art ...

  5. Vertical Wind Profile Data Collection Using Laser Technology on Unmanned Delivery Platforms.

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04007

    The current project will develop and demonstrate a prototype compact, power-efficient all-fiber lidar unit for wind profiling on board UAV's and other aircraft. The system leverages Oceanit's current fiber-laser based lidar development efforts. A unique design provides a rugged system with no moving parts and little maintenance requirements. Efforts in the current project will include prototype s ...

  6. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of a high speed non ionizing time domain terahertz (THz) measurement system to replace nuclear gauges. Nuclear source gauges (such as beta and gamma) are used in industrial process monitoring and control, often to measure thickness or mass in paper, plastics, rubber, and food stuffs in manufacturing and packaging. A single system based on low power non-ionizing ...

  7. High Speed Non Ionizing Terahertz Measurement System to Replace Nuclear Gages

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: HSB061010

    We propose a Phase II project to develop and prototype a flexible time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) instrument that can be marketed to customers currently utilizing nuclear source gauges. While nuclear gauges are an established technology, their radiological sources present on-going safety, security, regulation, and disposal concerns. A primary goal of this project is to establish that; when all tech ...

  8. Advanced Lightweight Vehicle Components and Materials

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07001

    The additional weight of add on armor systems and extra equipment, coupled with IED tactical warfare, has negatively impacted the performance of tactical wheeled vehicles. This is demonstrated by compressed suspension systems, higher vehicle center of gravity, increased rollovers, and reduced performance on all tactical vehicles, but is especially prevalent in HMMWV’s. The US military has star ...

  9. Microwave Vehicle Stopping

    SBC: CYBERNET SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: HSB052002

    Cybernet Systems is developing a novel, nonlethal method for disabling an uncooperative vehicle called the MVS, or Microwave Vehicle Stopper. Our system transmits modulated microwave energy to the target vehicle that is tailored to disrupt the computation functions of the vehicle engine controller, safely slowing and stopping the vehicle. Inducing a car to stall without permanent damage generally ...
