  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. Integrated Self-powered MEMS-Insect Swarms for biochemical detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: CBD09105

    In this program, Agiltron proposes the development of self-powered bio-mechanical swarms for detection and communication of biochemical agents for both civil and defense applications. We propose to integrate a micro electro-mechanical suite of sensors, actuators, power harvesters and electronics by surgical insertion during early metamorphosis of insects to allow rugged and reliable biomechanical ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Spectroscopic high throughput identification of protein variants

    SBC: Lexitek Inc            Topic: CBD09104

    Quantitative Raman spectroscopy offers a means of estimating concentrations of protein variants. The Raman spectrum can be a fingerprint of an individual molecule and features unique to functional groups. In conjunction with robust data analysis such as principal component analysis (PCA), chemometric assessment of a sample can be performed. As an optical technique, this approach can yield high-thr ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Hand-Held Raman Analyzer for Chemical Identification


    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to build a hand-held Raman analyzer that can perform non-contact identification and hazard classification of chemicals in the field. This will be accomplished by building an exceptionally small interferometer, and producing a field-worthy, hand-held Raman analyzer that is less than 6x6x4” and 8 lbs. The Phase I program demonstrat ...

  9. High-Speed Resonant FTIR Spectrometer for Surface Contaminant Measurements

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: CBD09107

    OPTRA proposes a high-speed resonant Fourier transform infrared (HSR-FTIR) spectrometer incorporating a multiple pass, reciprocating configuration and a resonant mirror structure to accomplish the scanning. The intended application is time-resolved thermal luminescence (TL) measurements of surface contaminants. The multiple pass configuration of the FTIR effectively reduces the physical stroke l ...

  10. Sensor Fusion Software Tool for CBRN Global Threat Prediction and Assessment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD09110

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a software tool that is capable of fusing disparate data sources including hyperspectral standoff sensor data products, weather information, and point sensor data generated from a deployed network of sensors. The proposed software suite will be based on an algorithm that will compute the threat type, spatial and temporal concentration profiles as we ...
