  1. A Low-Cost In-flight Deicing System for Aircraft

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed innovation is a deicing system for aircraft leading edges using a high-efficiency, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer. The entire aircraft industry needs this technology to improve safety while minimizing the overall impact on aircraft weight and fuel consumption. We propose to use a low-cost, electrically actuated thin-film elastomer to break the ice bond in a manner similar ...

  2. Small Scale Fuel Cells for Ground Personnel

    SBC: ADAPTIVE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Adaptive Materials Inc. will explore the feasibility of small scale power generation using microtubule solid oxide fuel cells as outlined in Topic Area 3; Materials and Processes for Electrochemical Energy Conversion. We believe microtubule solid oxidefuel cells are the key to a soldier portable, rapid starting, field-rugged, compact, and light weight power source. Individual cells demonstrating ...

  3. Non-Invasive, Continuous, Transdermal Glucose Monitor w/Actuator Control


    "AST proposes to develop a non-invasive methodology able to continuously monitor blood glucose concentration. As opposed to employing near infrared spectroscopy, which suffers from the limitations of sensitivity, stability, and repeatability, AST intendsto employ direct measurement of glucose, via amperometric sensors coated with glucose oxidase membranes, from minute amounts of interstitial flui ...

  4. Techniques for Viewing Terrain Data on Handheld Displays

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "While the technology is now available to deliver complex graphics files (such as terrain maps) to field-based users using handheld computers, it is difficult to view and navigate a large graphics file through a small viewing screen. The option ofincreasing the size of the display to give greater resolution (and comprehension) is not practical since field based personnel need portability and smal ...

  5. Pin Array Approach to the Dynamic Sand Table

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Cybernet plans to provide a solution to the dynamic sand table problem by employing an array of pins driven by an arm equipped with a vector of actuators. The pins shall lie at rest upon a board filled with holes for the pins. The array board will besimilar to an optical breadboard with one major exception; the holes will be as close together as the hardware allows. The pins will be placed such ...

  6. Moir¿Interferometry Measurement Device

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The Army is continually assessing materiel condition in the field through a process that involves manual gaging of components. This process tends to be slow and prone to operator error. Cybernet proposes to implement a reliable rapid non-contact 3D surfaceshape data acquisition system to facilitate this gage measurement. Cybernet proposes the use of a Moir¿ interferometry optical ranging sensor ...

  7. Optical Projectile Identification and Inventory System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "As armaments are loaded into a magazine, a pair of cameras sits silently by, allowing a computer to dutifully record what type of round-including fuze type and charge setting-goes into each location. An automated armament system now has enough informationto call upon the magazine, index to the required projectile, extract it, and load it into the gun to complete a fire mission. In this Phase I ...

  8. Telemaintenance of Future Combat System (FCS) Semi-Autonomous Platforms and Equipment

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "Our proposal is to develop a nearly autonomous control methodology for telemaintenance of robotic platforms. At the core of our approach is an expert decision software module that can combine status (or diagnostic) information with possible maintenanceremedies. The expert system executes actions via a vehicular command and control network that can efficiently convey information across the platfor ...

  9. An Instant Communications Network for Dismounted Applications

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "In order to facilitate all weather communications in areas with dense foliage, we propose to develop an "instant" wireless local area network (WLAN). The WLAN will be deployed into the area where the dismounted team will operate. Nodes combine as relays ina communications network. Each node is an independent transceiver, able to receive and send data to neighboring nodes. Physically, the nodes ar ...

  10. Wearable Cognitive Warfighter Evaluation System

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The modern warfighter has to process a large amount of constant critical information. While cognitive performance evaluation of a warfighter's capabilities can be done in the lab, it has yet to be taken out into the field where the real stresses occur.Fortunately, it is now technologically possible to gather warfighter cognitive workload data through the use of wearable computers. Current cogni ...
