  1. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility flares offer significant advantages for nighttime protection of rotary wing vehicles. Aerodyne Research Inc (ARI) and its teaming partner ATK propose flares having nearly same intensity in IR bands of interest while having greatly reduced visibility. The Phase I program will build on previous work performed by ARI on low visibility flares to identify candidate flare compositions h ...

  2. Compact, Efficient Motor Controllers with Active Noise Cancellation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SOCOM09005

    Most commercial motor controllers (MC’s) operate at relatively low switching frequency that produces a detectable acoustic signature and therefore drives the Navy to procure MC’s operating at higher frequencies in order to reduce acoustic signature. These custom MC’s, however, still generate significant noise, are not sufficiently reliable, and have obsolete components. APS will develop an i ...

  3. Registration of EO and LIDAR using an Interoperability Architecture for Net-Centric Environments (RELIANCE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09003

    The “see first, understand first, act first, finish decisively” principle requires that military commanders and analysts be provided a complete, up-to-the-second view of the battlefield. Currently deployed full motion video (FMV) sensors provide crucial real-time situational awareness, but suffer from limited field of view and lack of geographical context. Augmenting current FMV displays with ...

  4. High-Sensitivity Military GPS Receivers for Ground-Users


    The overall objective of the HSGR Program is to develop a high sensitivity military GPS receiver to provide reliable GPS navigation, under weak GPS signal conditions, to ground based military GPS users. Mayflower’s approach to meet this HSGR program objective is to design, develop and incorporate “high-sensitivity” signal processing enhancements (namely, Vector Tracking (VT) and Multi-bit GP ...

  5. Thermally Insulative Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SOCOM09001

    USSOCOM Special Operations Divers operate in harsh environments, often exposed to extreme cold temperaturess for extended periods of time. An advanced thermal protection system is required that provides enhanced thermal protection at cold temperatures as well as reduced thermal performance at elevated temperatures to prevent overheating. Mide proposes to combine nanomaterials with hydrogels to a ...

  6. An Absolute C02 Monitor with Extremely High Accuracy

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 43b

    Carbon dioxide is monitored worldwide at hundreds of monitoring stations. However, existing methods rely on the use of high pressure calibration gas cylinders, which are both labor intensive and expensive. Thus, there is a pressing need for an affordable, highly accurate (at least 1 part in 3000) carbon dioxide monitor for the ambient atmosphere that can operate unattended for several months or ...

  7. Characterization of Particulate Organic via Combined Thermal Desorption Aerosol Gas Chromatography and Aerosol Mass Spectrometry (TAG-AMS)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Although aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health, large uncertainties remain in quantifying their chemical composition and atmospheric transformations. Particularly lacking are real-time, quantitative instruments for the identification, speciation, and source apportionment of organic-containing aerosols. An innovative thermal desorption, ...

  8. High Precision C0S Monitor to Constrain the Partitioning of C02 Fluxes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 43a

    Distinguishing between photosynthetic uptake and respiratory emission of CO2 from plants is a difficult problem; yet, determining the small difference between these two parameters is crucial for determining the net ecosystem exchange of CO2 between the atmosphere and the biosphere. Carbonyl sulfide (COS) is a surrogate for CO2 uptake by plants during photosynthesis, but COS is not emitted from pl ...

  9. Development and Characterization of a Compact Aerosol Chemical Speciation Monitor (ACSM)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 44c

    Aerosol particles have important impacts on visibility, acid deposition, climate, and human health. A large fraction of these aerosols are generated from energy-related activities. These organic aerosols can be directly emitted from combustion sources or formed through gas-phase reactions of volatile organic compounds. Of the organic aerosol mass, only a small fraction has been compositionally ...

  10. Dual Laser Isotopic Flux Monitor for Carbon Dioxide and Water Vapor

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The increase of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the Earth¿s atmosphere is the most important driver of global warming. In order to predict future carbon dioxide concentrations under various mitigation strategies, a much better quantitative understanding of the sources and sinks of atmospheric carbon dioxide is required. Studying the ratios of the stable isotopes of CO2 has long been recognized as a too ...
