  3. Multiple Mechanism (MULTIMECH) Body Armor

    SBC: TechVen Technologies, LLC            Topic: A13021

    The goal of this project is ultimately to develop a new mechanism to enable rigid body armor plates to defeat armor piercing threats. Our Phase I results showed three separate mechanisms for defeating both traditional armor piercing rounds as well as new AP rounds that use tungsten carbide penetrator cores. With these mechanisms now understood, our Phase II work will focus on optimizing the physic ...

  4. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  5. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  6. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    ABSTRACT: An organizational culture that promotes problem solving is necessary for success in any organization. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) is the inspection of a structure or component in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The purpose of the inspection may be to detect flaws, measure geometric characteristics, determine material structure or composition, or it may characte ...

  7. Innovative Aeropropulsion Technology for Future Military Assets

    SBC: SPACEWORKS ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: AF05192

    ABSTRACT: SpaceWorks Enterprises, Inc. (SEI) believes that industry demand exists for a new robust and modern trajectory simulation program suitable for use in design studies up through Preliminary Design Reviews (PDR). This proposal seeks to further develop a trajectory tool that is flexible enough to support a wide variety of space transportation concepts and launch platforms. The tool, called ...

  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 ...

  9. The Terabit Optical COMMunications (TOCOMM) System

    SBC: R-DEX Systems, Inc            Topic: AF14AT02

    ABSTRACT: R-DEX Systems proposes to develop the Terabit Optical COMMunications (TOCOMM) System to radically improve airborne Free-Space Optical (FSO) communications. TOCOMM will combine proven spatial, spectral, and polarization multiplexing, advanced coding and channel equalization, advanced optics, advanced laser communications and state-of-the-art pointing, acquisition and tracking (PAT) tech ...

  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 ...
