  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. Panoramic Helmet-Mounted Display and Processing

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB091010

    Leveraging on our extensive experience on laser projection technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of see-through type of Head Mounted Display (HMD) with wide field of view and foveal vision ability, targeted for integrating with enhanced vision systems for night and daytime dismounted infantry combat operations with a secondary function of providing command and control information an ...

  3. Single Wall Carbon Nanotube Printed Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB082014

    Leveraging on our extensive experience in carbon nanotube material processes and printing technology, AGILTRON together with a research group from UIUC, propose to realize a new class of integrated circuits printed from single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). This new printed integrated circuit (PIC) is based on recently developed medium SWCNT ICs on flexible plastic substrates. The result will be ...

  4. Lilliputian Thermal Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB082006

    The Agiltron lilliputian thermal camera implements a revolutionary approach to thermal imaging. Based on our company’s proven photomechanical IR imaging technology, we separate the IR focal plane array (FPA) from the readout integrated circuitry (ROIC), which allows ubiquitous yet highly-functional CMOS imagers to serve as the ROIC. The disruptive, modular design of the Agiltron lilliputian ther ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    There is a Department of Defense need for a persistent, mobile power generating capability to service offshore bases and other temporary or mobile installations. In order to facilitate both persistence and mobility, the present concept is of a free floating wind turbine platform, convertible from generating mode to transit mode. Challenges to design of this concept include stability, seakeeping, c ...

  7. Cognitive Patterns: An Architecture for Distributed Control of ChemBots

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082007

    A key challenge to the future deployment of DARPA’s Chemical Robots (ChemBots) ChemBots is a system for controlling them that operates in a distributed fashion. There are three primary requirements: 1) its distributed nature must be transparent to the user; 2) it must exploit local acting and sensing capabilities while maintaining a global common operational picture; and 3) it must be robust to ...

  8. Metal Hydride Energy Source for HALE Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB082064

    Busek Co. Inc. and the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) of Pennsylvania State University propose to develop a metal hydride based propulsion system for High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft. In Phase I, we will select the most promising propellant combination and design a system around it. We will demonstrate through analysis that the system can meet relevant HALE aircraft goals for powe ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    The duties of modern military personnel often require the completion of challenging tasks, in stressful environments, and with multiple demands competing for the warfighter’s focus. Measuring the stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) of the warfighter during a particular task would have multiple benefits: (1) commanders would be able to detect problems and reallocate workload or addre ...
