  1. Air Platform Passive Occupant Protection

    SBC: GS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A18001

    Seated aircrew members rely on their five-point harnesses to position their bodies correctly within their seats in order to provide the best chance of survivability during a rapid deceleration event. The current system requires the user to adjust each of five straps manually in order to correctly position the central rotary buckle in such a way to minimize potential internal injuries. For a variet ...

  2. Development of a Turbocharger for Small Aviation Diesel Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A18019

    Baker Engineering Inc. (BEI) proposes researching and developing a reliable sequential turbocharger system for a typical 2.0l class aviation compression-ignition engine with a maximum power of 180hp at sea level which is capable of providing 108hp at an altitude of 30,000-ft. With emphasis on durability and performance at altitude, research will be conducted on turbocharger construction, bearing s ...

  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. 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 ...

  7. Scalable, Open-Environment Additive Manufacturing of Metal Parts

    SBC: GRID LOGIC INCORPORATED            Topic: A18104

    The U.S. Army has a critical need for cost-effective, low-quantity metal part production that is not constrained by long lead times. This production is becoming increasingly important as the need for legacy system replacement parts, high-customization applications, and location of production close to the demand for parts expands.In this Phase I SBIR project, Grid Logic will address limitations of ...

  8. Development of a Modular, Open-Architecture, Open Source, Integrated, and Validated Mobility Prediction Capability

    SBC: MotionPort, LLC            Topic: A18105

    Various NATO entities are interested in developing a next generation of the NATO Reference Mobility Model (or NG-NRMM). MotionPort LLC recommends that the feasibility study of this Phase I effort consider a NG-NRMM capability that is built upon a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS), open architecture, multibody dynamics software. This approach will reduce the risk of NG-NRMM development and enable the ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...
