  1. Real-Time Millimeter-Wave Holography for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  2. Development of a Tool for the Semi-Automated Restoration of Vehicle-Sized Thermal Clutter in Topographic Height Fields Arising from Terrain Discontinuities

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: A15006

    Physics-based target and background simulations are used extensively by the missile development community for seeker development and testing. Signature Research, Inc. (SGR) proposes to improve the spatial fidelity of the background by adding an important class of clutter objects, features that have near vertical discontinuities in the terrain topography. These features include washes, dry creeks, ...

  3. An Integrated Biohazard Analyzer for Multiplexed Food and Water Pathogens

    SBC: Espira, Inc.            Topic: A15064

    Espira has developed a Biohazard Analyzer (BA) for rapid pathogen detection. Espiras Biohazard Analyzer goes beyond lab culturing of indicator coliforms and E.coli by detecting a suite of specific bacteria, protozoa and viruses in the same test. Total organisms and viable organisms are separately reported for each pathogen. A typical Biohazard Analyzer test cycle is under 1 hour. This includes aut ...

  4. Radiolytic Atomic Cell for Long-lived Sensors

    SBC: Infinity Power LLC            Topic: A15018

    Heavy power sources with short lifetimes have been significant obstacles to realizing the full potential of various miniaturized electrical and mechanical systems developed in the recent, remarkable growth of micro/nanotechnology. In contrast to conventional power sources, a radioisotope power source can operate for extended periods of time and in extreme environments. More importantly, the energy ...

  5. Rapid, sensitive and multiplex detection of pathogens in water and food within disposable cartridges

    SBC: Ancera, Inc.            Topic: A15064

    Each year, over 48 million people fall sick, 128,000 are hospitalized and 3,000 people die due to food related illnesses in the U.S. alone. Unfortunately, existing technologies for pathogen detection in food and water are too slow and inefficient taking days to conclude, and requiring either intense labor in a dedicated laboratory or expensive capital equipment. We propose to develop a sensitive, ...

  6. Nanoxene Enabled Radiant Floor Heating Technology for Expeditionary Shelters

    SBC: LIFE-E, LLC            Topic: A15066

    In this Phase I proposal, we describe the design of a radiant-heating system enabled by the Nanoxene electrothermal coating technology recently invented by Life-E. We will demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating this system as radiant-floor heating technology for expeditionary shelters. The new radiant-heating system has an accordion-style planar sheet structure, powered by a three-phase AC inp ...

  7. Next-Generation Adenovirus Vaccine

    SBC: PROTEIN SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A15051

    In this proposal, Protein Sciences Corporation proposes to develop a bivalent, recombinant protein based adenovirus vaccine to protect against serotypes 4 and 7, based on our proprietary platform technology of baculovirus expression vector system (BEVS) and insect cells. We propose the hexon protein as the target antigen as it is considered the primary target for neutralizing antibodies generated ...

  8. Development of Fidelity Metrics for Image-based Missile Simulation Environments

    SBC: Signature Research, Inc.            Topic: A15005

    We propose to develop a methodology and supporting tools for assessing and estimating multidimensional fidelity requirements for target and background scenes used in M&S to obtain smart munitions system performance. The overall effort in Phase I will focus on the development of a proof-of-concept demonstration that involves integrating fidelity metrics, development of test imagery, performance ass ...

  9. Front-end Application Specific Integrated Circuit for Navigation-Grade MEMS Gyroscope

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15022

    STI proposes to design a high performance Front End ASIC using the Trusted Tower-Jazz 130nm process to drive both piezoelectric and capacitive MEMS gyroscopes as specified in the solicitation with Angular Random Walk (ARW) less than 0.001 deg/hr^(1/2), less than 1ppm variation over -40C to 80C, 100db dynamic range and 10VDC at 30mA, tunable with drive and sense frequency ranging from 1-30kHz, with ...

  10. Real-Time Camera-Independent Image Processing System For Long-Range Tactical Imaging Applications

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: A15026

    We propose to identify the algorithms, architectures and performance evaluation criteria for real-time, high-resolution, long-range imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The most promising algorithms will be implemented on a hardware acceleration platform. The end-goal for phase 1 is to develop a complete system design ready to be implemented in hardware for real-time video processing of 2Kx2K v ...
