  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. 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 ...

  4. High Performance Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) Focal Plane Array (FPA) Sensor for Missile Defense

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: MDA14021

    We propose to bandgap-engineer the antimony-based Group III-V compound semiconductor material system to realize a dualband focal plane array (FPA) made up of stacked multi-barrier Type-II strained layer superlattice (SLS) photodiodes. Two longwave infrared (LWIR) spectral bands will be imaged in alternate frames by using a readout multiplexer that flips the voltage bias across the FPA from frame ...

  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. 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 ...

  8. Automated Airfoil Inspection System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151054

    ABSTRACT:Inspection of inserted compressor blades is difficult due to the complicated geometry of the blades, the need for high accuracy, and the safety risk posed by undetected cracks. At present, the time and cost associated with airfoil inspection forces many parts to be condemned and replaced after limited service. Creare proposes to develop an Automated Airfoil Inspection System (AAIS) that p ...

  9. Air-Assist Atomizers for Fuel-Flexible Gas Turbine Combustors and Augmentors

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151061

    ABSTRACT:Jet-in-crossflow fuel injectors are commonly used to fuel gas turbine main combustors and augmentors. The performance of this type of atomizer is sensitive to the engine operating condition, so that fuel placement can vary over the flight envelope. This can lead to suboptimal fueling and combustion stability issues. Similarly, changes in fuel physical properties impact jet penetration and ...

  10. A Modular Power Converter for Austere Space Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF151084

    ABSTRACT:Spacecraft power management relies upon DC-DC converters to provide multiple voltages from the storage battery. Currently available converters have shortcomings in areas of power density, tolerance to radiation and wide operating temperatures, and excessive development cost. We propose to develop a high specific power converter that is compatible with spacecraft operational environments a ...
