  1. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The Army has identified solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power systems as a potential solution to a variety of power needs ranging from roughly 0.1 - 100 kW. Reformed JP-8, the Army logistics fuel, can be used as the feed, but the fuel sulfur content must first be reduced to 10 ppm. We plan to test a novel ultrasonic slurry reactor as part of a compact desulfurization process for treatment of sulfur ...

  2. Monolithic SiGe SWIR Imaging Cameras

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A07119

    In this project, Agiltron and RTI International propose to demonstrate low-cost, low-power, man-portable megapixel SiGe SWIR imaging cameras as a vehicle to replace more costly InGaAs imaging cameras. In Phase I, superlattices of Ge quantum dots or strained SiGe layers will be investigated for their detection performance in the SWIR band. In Phase II, leveraging the colossal investments made in th ...

  3. Compact and Highly Sensitive MEMS Enhanced Fiber Gas Spectrometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A07135

    Leveraging on our extensive production experience on MEMS technology and fiber optic components, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of gas spectrometer with built-in MEMS enhanced mid-IR tunable laser and gas filled hollow fiber as gas cell, targeted for TIC and CWA detection. Our proposed MEMS enhanced QCL based external cavity tuning laser has high output power (tens of mW) and very large ...

  4. Control of Dislocations for Improved IR Sensors Using Epitaxial Necking

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A06T021

    It is well established that in order to produce large-format LWIR HgCdTe FPAs for third-generation IR systems, Si substrates must be used. In the DoD Militarily Critical Technologies List (December 2005), HgCdTe/Si is listed as a critical material and achieving an etch pit density (EPD) < 1x106 cm-2 is identified as a critical technology parameter. Thus it is imperative that a manufacturable techn ...

  5. Rapid Generation of High-affinity Aptamers for Quantification of Protein Biomarkers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A07147

    The generation of genomic and proteomic data with the goal of biomarker discovery for disease diagnostics or prognosis is a powerful approach. However, biomarkers identified from a typically small sample size must be validated on a large population. A limiting factor is the availability of high-quality reagents for the quantification of the biomarkers in a complex medium such as serum. The assa ...

  6. Command & Control Robotic Assets Display (C2RAD)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD06UM4

    The Army’s Future Force will transform human warfighting units into distributed teams of human and robotic assets. These robotic assets are envisioned to dramatically improve real-time situational awareness (SA) for human troops, and increase mission success. Aptima has tested these claims for DARPA, ONR, and others in computational and human factors experiments. We have identified several chall ...

  7. Modeling Accurate Cultural Behaviors for Effective Training of Humans (MACBETH)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD06CR2

    The Global War on Terror requires coalition forces to engage with diverse cultures. This requires robust knowledge of cultures and skill at handling them. Current cultural training devices fail to leverage the theory, data, or interfaces necessary to deliver culturally rich training and mission rehearsal. We propose to develop a system for Modeling Accurate Cultural Behaviors for Effective Trainin ...

  8. Cultural Assessment and Simulation of Military Information/Operations in Reaction and Response (CASMIRR)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06079

    In the battle to “win the hearts and minds” of civilians close to conflict, the U.S. armed services have had difficulty operating and interacting with cultures different from our own. This seems largely due to the difficulty of understanding how culture applies to a given situation, and how the Soldiers’ actions will be construed within that cultural context. To improve the quality of Sold ...

  9. Virtual Puckster

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A06212

    A key challenge for future immersive mission rehearsal and training systems is the control of computer-generated opposing and supporting friendly forces. Currently, large numbers of personnel (or pucksters) are required to control computer-generated forces (CGFs), especially in simulated urban environments. In deployed settings, particularly for rehearsals at the platoon or squad level, pucksters ...

  10. J-MOC: Joint Measurement Operations Controller

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD05CR3

    With an increasing focus on Joint operations, current military training exercises are becoming more complex, relying on live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) environments. Currently, performance measurement, assessment, and feedback for JTF trainees in Joint training exercises focuses on observations made by Observer/Trainers (O/Ts) during exercises. However, observer-based data collection prese ...
