  1. MWIR Seeker-Sensor for Strap Down Weapon/SUAS applications

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: AF141139

    ABSTRACT:A program to develop a compact, HOT-FPA-based MWIR imager for small UAS sensor and strap-down seeker applications is proposed. The proposed system builds upon Surface Optics real-time broad-band and spectral imaging activities to generate a compact sensor appropriate for both ground and airborne operations that includes real-time detection and tracking of targets. Integrated into the proc ...

  2. Compound eye laser missile seeker (CELMS)

    SBC: Luminit LLC            Topic: A14008

    To address the Army need for a semi-active laser missile tracker that can lock onto a coded illuminator signal and ignore background noise such as sunlight, Luminit, LLC, proposes to continue development on the Compound Eye Laser Missile Seeker (CELMS). The CELMS is a compound eye device, based on the eye of a bee, with a number of independent lenses in a square array. Each individual lens is coup ...

  3. Measuring Whole Body Fluorescence and Movement in Freely Swimming Transgenic Zebrafish for Measuring Stress from Exposure to Environmental Stressors

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A13081

    Toyon Research Corporation proposes a Phase II SBIR project for development and delivery of a complete prototype system which performs 3D tracking and fluorescence measurement for transgenic zebrafish. The developed prototype will include both commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) hardware selected to optimize the collection of zebrafish fluorescence measurements, and advanced algorithms for stereo fluo ...

  4. Novel Cathodes for High Capacity Thermal Battery

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A14009

    The current state of the art thermal battery technologies will not be able to meet future requirements that call for higher power and capacity with a smaller footprint. The principal avenue for increasing the capacity of thermal battery is to identify and develop new electrode materials that provide higher specific capacity and power performance. The overall objective of the proposed effort is to ...

  5. Printed Low Voltage Munition Ignition Bridge

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: A14059

    The printed approach that Sciperio used in Phase I demonstrated that it is feasible to utilize direct printing to manufacture ignition bridges. The direct printed approach is a combination of printed electronics and 3D printing. The conductive materials were printed and the holder for the materials of interest was 3D printed and then filled. This is all done utilizing a single machine and therefor ...

  6. Contamination and Lasting Effects Analysis for Negative Substances and Elements (CLEANSE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A13078

    Environmental awareness has become an increasingly important issue for military training facilities. Given the nature of military training activities, it is crucial for training facility managers to understand the relationships among repeated contaminant release, contaminant migration, and available mitigation techniques. Current technologies used to assess the impact of contaminants do not consid ...

  7. Pathogen Specific Antimicrobial Coatings For Fabrics

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A14AT012

    Antimicrobial treatment of military textile systems is intended to provide enhanced protection to the Warfighter in the field by preventing colonization of harmful bacteria that cause problems such as odor, dermatitis, impetigo, cellulitis, and other skin irritations. Current treatments can impart antimicrobial functionality to textiles; however, they all possess broad-spectrum antimicrobial activ ...

  8. High Performance Switched Reluctance Generator Controller

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A15087

    This proposal describes a method to reduce the acoustic noise and torque ripple of a switched-reluctance machine by solving a multi-objective optimization problem. The physical limitations of the machine, namely voltage and temperature, are used as constraints, and these are related to the objectives of noise and torque variation. Electrical, mechanical, and thermal models are used to form an anal ...

  9. Finite State Inflow Model Augmented with Viscous Vortex Particle Method for Advanced Rotorcraft Configurations


    Most existing finite state inflow models that are widely used in flight dynamics simulation are limited to only modeling single main rotor helicopters. Modern advanced rotorcraft configurations usually involve multiple main rotors (e.g., co-axial, tilt-rotor, etc.), ducted fans, auxiliary wings, etc.. Advances in rotor inflow modeling are needed to extend the current modeling capability to provide ...

  10. Rapid Mission Planning for Desirable Viewing Conditions

    SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF141012

    ABSTRACT: Space Situational Awareness is concerned with the physical characteristics, capabilities, operations, health, and potential threats posed by space objects. This information is gathered largely via radar and optical data collection facilities. Due to the increasingly large number of space objects and relatively limited number of collection facilities, it's important that collection operat ...
