  8. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: Inmondo Tech, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    The emergence of metal-organic frameworks has presented an untapped potential for solving US Army individual and collective protection issues. The majority of work on MOF synthesis has been done at lab scale, yielding milligram or gram quantities. To test practical devices, scale up of MOF synthesis processes to kilogram quantities is necessary. However, most large commercial suppliers are uninte ...

  10. Human-Centered Mission Command Metrics for the Tactical Computing Environment

    SBC: Veloxiti            Topic: A143092

    What gets measured, gets improved. This widely accepted adage is as relevant to the military as it is to business. Measuring mission command has a unique set of challenges. Mission command must be flexible, but metrics are typically fixed. Mission command covers a broad set of interrelated factors, metrics are typically limited in scope. The military situation can change in an instant, metrics oft ...
