  1. Vehicle Payload Detection at Low Speeds through Weigh-in-Motion

    SBC: WOLF TECHNICAL SERVICES INC            Topic: A09098

    A Weigh-in-Motion (WIM) system is being developed that will deploy in or on roadways of all types and accurately measure and report weights of crossing vehicles, including total vehicle weight and individual axle and wheel weights. The innovation in the system is that it senses horizontal (lateral and longitudinal) forces at each wheel and uses those measurements to correct for vehicle weight shi ...

  2. Uncertainty-modeling Rules for Situational Awareness (URSA)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A08186

    To provide improved Collaborative Situation Awareness (CSA) and, ultimately, improve the Warfighter’s operational success, PEO Soldier is developing new equipment, technologies, and tactics, techniques and procedures (TTPs) that leverage the wealth of information available to Net-Centric Soldiers. Modeling and Simulation can support these efforts by providing the ability to model the effect ...

  3. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  4. Ultra-dark nanostructured surface treatment

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A13009

    A manufacturing process for nanostructured ultradark coatings will be developed that will enable a rapid transition of the technology to fielded Department of Defense optical systems. The process will leverage the successful Phase I effort that demonstrated the application of ultradark coatings on aluminum surfaces that had less than 1% reflectance for wavelengths between 300 nm and 10 m. During t ...

  5. Thermal Bioaerosol Cloud Tracking with Bayesian Classification

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A13098

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes the development of a processing system based on a Recursive Bayesian Classifier (RBC) for detection, tracking, and classification of biological clouds using imagery from existing uncooled thermal imagers. This solutio

  6. The Effects of JP-8 on High Pressure Common Rail Fuel Systems and Pumps

    SBC: ANALYTICAL ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: A08128

    The lack of lubrication performance associated with JP-8 fuel in modern diesel engines equipped with High Pressure Common Rail (HPCR) fuel systems can lead to premature performance loss and catastrophic field failure. OEM¡¦s will need to first thoroughly understand these effects and then make provisions for JP-8 fuel compatibility as engines in the Army fleet are replaced with modern engines ...

  7. Synthesis and Characterization of Halogenated Cyclic Nitramines

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12011

    The Army recognizes a continuing need for more powerful high explosives that have improved energy density. To increase the energy of nitramine materials further, a highly promising strategy is to modify the inherent crystalline density of RDX/HMX materials by structural substitution of hydrogen atoms with halogen atoms. In the Phase I program, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) demonstrated that direct ...

  8. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles


    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  9. Self-Healing, Reinforced, Multifunctional Composite Material

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09AT023

    Physical Sciences Inc. and the University of Delaware propose a novel self-healing, damage-sensing, reinforced polymer composite concept for use in degradation-resistant structural applications. In Phase I we investigated the feasibility of a microcapsule-based self-healing system and a damage-sensing functionality. The objective of Phase II is to develop a reinforced composite material that incor ...

  10. Scene Understanding for Semi-Autonomous Navigation (SUSAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A08145

    The Army has a clear need for a small mobile robot capable of accompanying a single soldier. Such a robot would help solve both logistical problems of individual soldiers needing to transport more equipment and supplies than they can carry in a backpack, and tactical problems of scouting unsafe areas. Multiple designs for such robots exist; however, a common problem for those robots is that they n ...
