  1. LOW-COST, PORTABLE AND AUTOMATED SMOKE POINT TESTING APPARATUS FOR MILITARY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: A10AT010

    Fuels for Army use undergo rigorous analysis to determine many chemical and physical properties before they are used in Army vehicles. The property of fuels to produce smoke or soot is one such specification used to determine fuel quality. Smoke production of a diffusion flame produced by a kerosene fuel can be correlated to the chemical composition of the fuel. Unfortunately, the standard used to ...

  2. Low-Cost Chaos Radar

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11aT001

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and Duke University propose to extend the recent developments of matched filtered chaos into a low-cost high range-resolution chaotic waveform radar. In the Phase I effort, PRA and Duke will design the radar system and build a prototype waveform generator that will exploit three essential properties of chaotic waveforms that can be applied to enhance r ...

  3. Compact, Rugged, and Low-Cost Wavelength-Versatile Burst Laser

    SBC: Performance Lasers            Topic: A11aT009

    Very compact, robust, and low cost multi wavelengths burst lasers for standoff CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive) detection and identification are proposed. Although a single focused laser pulse on target can do the detection, the probability of hitting the right contaminated spot is low. Therefore, scanning a laser pulse train will cover a larger suspected contamin ...

  4. High Risk Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Tool (HRREAT)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    This proposal is to develop a High Risk Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Tool (HRREAT) that will provide commanders and their staff with a fully-integrated, user-friendly suite of tools for the rapid collection, management, analysis, modeling, and visualization of ethnographic data in denied areas to enhance planning and decision making activities. Ethnographic data has become highly important in ...

  5. A Priori Error-Controlled Simulations of Electromagnetic Phenomena for HPC

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: A11aT015

    Recently significant advances have been made in the high fidelity modeling of electromagnetic phenomena in complex geometries in the time-domain. To make high fidelity simulations of scattering and radiation tractable, the computational region must be truncated in a manner allowing outgoing waves to leave with minimal reflection from the boundary. We, HyPerComp in collaboration with Profess ...

  6. High Performance Complex Oxide Thin Film Materials to Enable Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators (FBAR) for Low-Loss Radio Frequency Devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    The proposed project focuses on a new technology that has a built-in switch to turn the filter on and off, and thus is functionally equivalent to a high-selectivity filter and a low-loss switch, where the switch draws no DC power. Agile calls this new invention the Switchable Trimmable Acoustic Resonator (STAR). An array of such filters could implement a very compact and reconfigurable high-sele ...

  7. Thin-Film Multiferroic Heterostructures for Frequency-Agile RF Electronics

    SBC: Aneeve            Topic: A11aT018

    We aim to undertake a Phase I study of multiferroic heterostructure thin film composite materials (CoFeB / PMN-PT) and their applications in high frequency (>10GHz) microwave passive circuit building blocks. In this Phase I investigation, Aneeve Nanotechnologies together with Prof Charles Ahn (Yale University) and Dr. Pedram Khalili (UCLA) will develop multiferroic heterostructure systems to demon ...

  8. Advanced Wavelength Tuners for Chem-Bio Detection Lasers

    SBC: LFK Technology Corp.            Topic: A11aT024

    Active standoff detection of chemical and biological agents with lasers has proven to be very effective. Specific targets include chemical vapors, chemical aerosols, and biological particles. Most notably, the FAL (Frequency Agile Laser) sensor developed by ECBC (Edgewood Chemical Biological Center) has shown capability to detect all of these targets with a single device. Also, optical technique ...

  9. Development of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) Phantoms to Enhance the Diagnosis of Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT031

    Survival rates for soldiers injured by IED blasts and similar trauma are enhanced by prompt, high-quality medical care. Among the survivors, however, increasing numbers report symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Mild and moderate TBIs with no skull-penetrating wounds are difficult to detect and diagnose with commonly used diagnostic systems. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), a subset of Mag ...

  10. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...
