  1. Improving the Ventilation of Motorcycle Helmets

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 151NH1

    Use of motorcycles helmets significantly reduces the risk of fatality or serious brain injury to riders in the event of a crash, but riders often do not wear helmets in warm weather because of thermal discomfort. We propose to develop an innovative ventilation and cooling system that will maintain a cool, dry environment inside the helmet while also meeting applicable safety standards. The key inn ...

  2. Hostile Fire Indicator for Remotely Piloted Aircraft

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF121102

    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose the development and demonstration of a wide area (WA) multi-threat hostile fire indication (HFI) system for remotely-piloted aircraft (RPA).The HFI system consists of a comparatively wide field of view sensor that employs miniature optics and a custom short-wave infrared (SWIR) camera based on a commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS ...

  3. Extended-SWIR Targeting Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112096

    ABSTRACT:Current military systems laser rangefinding and designation systems require multiple detectors, which make such systems large, heavy, and power hungry, which limits application to larger, high-value platforms. The proposed Phase II program addresses the need for a single, compact high-resolution SWIR imager with see-spot/time-spot capabilities. In the Phase II program, Voxtel will develop ...

  4. GMTI Data Exploitation For SWAP Limited Radar Systems

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131139

    ABSTRACT:Size, weight, and power (SWaP) limitations restrict the ability of airborne radar systems to detect low-observable moving targets such as dismounts and slow vehicles in strong clutter.Solid State Scientific Corporation has developed a unique ground moving target indication signal processing algorithm which is ideal for SWaP limited systems due to its computational efficiency and its sensi ...

  5. Active, frequency-selective meta-surfaces for reduced antenna footprint and jamming mitigation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF131066

    ABSTRACT: Significant cost reductions and system improvements would ensue if multiple transmit and receive antennas could share one RF aperture without performance degradation due to self-interference phenomenon. Effects of radar jamming signals would be also be reduced through the use of a properly designed reflector capable of only reflecting the RF radiation of interest. To enable such improv ...

  6. Imaging Techniques for Passive Atmospheric Turbulence Compensation

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF141179

    ABSTRACT:Solid State Scientific Corporation (SSSC) is pleased to propose a Phase II SBIR program to develop a unique technique for imaging through atmospheric turbulence. The proposed idea combines the use of specially designed hardware and associated algorithms to yield improved performance over current systems. The proposed solution will improve upon one of the traditional techniques for imaging ...

  7. VLWIR SLS Digital FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A13AT014

    QmagiQ and MIT-LL will partner to develop a high-performance very longwave infrared digital focal plane array (VLWIR DFPA) suitable for hyperspectral imaging applications. The DFPA will be based on Type-II antimony-based strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes with > 13 micron cutoff, hybridized to a digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC). In Phase I, we investigated the performance of a ...

  8. High-Resolution Asynchronous Day/Night Timespot NIR-SWIR Imager Development

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15039

    A compact, low-power near/shortwave infrared sensor capable of temporally and spatially resolving battlefield lasers asynchronously under day and night conditions will be developed. The approach is based on an existing active-passive focal plane array (FPA), which readily lends itself to this application. In Phase I, after working with U.S. Army stakeholders to refine the requirements and the cont ...

  9. Anatomic Phantom for Non-Invasive Brain Stimulation Studies

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) can potentially provide a safe, non-invasive, and painless method for enhancing cognition, vigilance, and learning rate. However, further research is required to evaluate, demonstrate, and understand its efficacy in a controlled and reproducible manner. Hypothesis-driven studies of tDCS require targeted delivery of electrical currents to spec ...

  10. Prattle: Deception and Anti-Reconnaissance via CyberChaff

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF151029

    ABSTRACT:Computer network defense tools are plagued with an excessive amount of information, frequently in the form of false positives. Rather than attempt to train automated tools to detect attack events more reliably, we propose to build upon existing 'honey-net' technologies to interfere with the reconnaissance phases of an adversary's attack. We will build upon our existing CyberChaff (TM) tec ...
