  3. SMALL CALIBER MUNITIONS MANEUVERING USING PIEZO-ACTUATED COMPLIANT MECHANISMS

    SBC: Flexsys, Inc.            Topic: A18028

    Controlled guidance of small-caliber gun-fired munitions is currently limited by the severity of inertial loads from the launch event, which can be 60,000g in small-caliber munitions. There is a need for more robust mechanical guidance-control systems in small-caliber munitions that can provide substantial control authority while being able to survive extreme launch loads.Compliant mechanisms, act ...

  4. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  6. Intelligent System Architecture for Autonomous Care (ISAAC) Diagnosis

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: A18063

    Unmanned systems and autonomous capabilities provide an avenue for improving enroute care in situations where medical evacuation assets are either not available or unable to reach the patient. A first step is to explore how intelligent algorithms can be used to supplement the current capabilities by improving the diagnosis, intervention, and monitoring of combat trauma care. Variability in the sen ...

  9. Variable Stiffness Non-Pneumatic Tire for On-Highway and Off-Road Performance

    SBC: Flexsys, Inc.            Topic: A18101

    Military non-pneumatic tires are typically used in environments where the tire is susceptible to hazards such as explosions, ballistics, and road debris because they can continue to function when pneumatic tires would have typically failed from loss of air pressure. However, by varying tire pressure, pneumatic tires have the benefit of offering functionality at sustained highway speeds on paved ro ...

  10. Rapid, Transient, CFD-Based Solver for Human and Vehicle Thermal Signature Prediction

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: A18102

    The efficient design and evaluation of Army vehicles requires accurate simulation of the factors that affect the vehicles infrared signature and thermal conditions inside the vehicle. The model must account for all the transient heat transfer within the vehicle, including heat from the engine, air flow within the engine compartment, exhaust system, humidity transport and ventilation inside the veh ...
