  1. Micro Electro-mechanical Systems (MEMS) Safe & Arm for Rocket Motor Ignition

    SBC: Black Hills Nanosystems            Topic: MDA14022

    Ignition of rocket motors can be performed using low-volt firing components, but MIL-STD-1901A requires mechanical isolation for safety. While traditional safe & arm devices are available, they are relatively large and heavy. Recent progress in MEMS has developed miniature safe & arm devices for low-cost munitions such as 40MM grenade and airburst munitions. The Black Hills Nanosystems team has ...

  2. Tool for Assessing the Recuperation Time from an Electromagnetic Disruption for a Digital System

    SBC: VIGILANT CYBER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: AF151011

    ABSTRACT:Vigilant Cyber Systems, Inc. (VCS) proposes to design and develop a Toolkit for Assessing Electromagnetic (EM) Disruption Recovery (TAEMDR) to simulate EM disruptions in digital systems and accurately assess operator response to the disruptions. TAEMDR is designed to be intuitive to use allowing test engineers to build very complex models of digital systems of various complexities from si ...

  3. Correlating tactical jet noise characteristics with community annoyance

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF151021

    ABSTRACT:The proposed effort will begin connecting military jet noise source and field properties with waveform and spectral features that correlate with human perception and annoyance. Tactical military aircraft noise evokes significant community response relative to ordinary transportation noise because of its high amplitudes and unique features, such as significant shock content and low-frequen ...

  4. 40 Percent Air Mass Zero Efficiency Solar Cells for Space Applications

    SBC: SEMPRIUS INC.            Topic: AF151095

    ABSTRACT:We propose an ultra-low profile hybrid CPV concept that combines multi-junction (MJ) CPV cells capable of 40% efficiency at 1 sun with a low-cost single-junction PV backplane in a design that is lightweight, based on concentration ratios >100X and has a panel thickness 500 W/kg and a wide acceptance angle of >4.0. The low-profile design, combined with world record performance, will yield ...

  5. Cognitive Computing Application for Defense Contracting

    SBC: KALSCOTT ENGINEERING INC            Topic: AF151194

    ABSTRACT:The need for a natural language query capability for DoD regulations is identified. A technical solution based on artificial intelligence, cognitive computing, and natural language query technology is presented. In Phase I, various techniques will be investigated, and one or more solutions will be developed and tested. In Phase II, the down-selected technologies will be refined and built- ...

  6. Enhanced Biocompatible Materials for the Repair of Ocular Injuries

    SBC: PREMITEC, INC.            Topic: A13085

    The objective of this project is to develop, produce, and commercialize a liquid-tight, field-applicable, ocular patch for wound stabilization and treatment of the eye following a war-related injury to the ocular surface. The patch consists of a curved flexible silicone membrane (similar in size and shape to a contact lens) which has had (1) a novel bio-adhesive

  7. Spatiotemporally Controlled Keratin Biomaterial Delivery System for Functional Tissue Regeneration

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: OSD10H03

    Currently, no commercial products exist for the repair of large injuries to muscle, particularly volumetric muscle loss (VML). In Phase I of this project, data demonstrated that keratin biomaterials can provide temporal release of growth factors while maintaining cell viability in vitro and in vivo. In Phase II, the biomaterial formulation was optimized for spatio-

  8. Visual Tire Pressure Indication

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: AF151169

    ABSTRACT: Vadum will develop a rugged, reliable low-cost visual tire pressure indicator system that will allow quick, objective assessment at standoff. The Visual Tire Pressure (VTiP) stem requires minimal changes as only the valve stem is replaced, thereby minimizing adoption cost and total cost of ownership. The VTiP stem has adjustable pressure set points, maintains closure of the valve core, a ...

  9. Development of Technologies that Address the Complex Architecture of the Face During the Treatment of Severe Facial Burn Injury

    SBC: Keranetics, LLC            Topic: DHP13016

    Burn injuries, particularly those to the face, present a number of functional and psychological challenges that arise from scarring and related contracture. A major goal of trauma and burn surgeons is to prevent scarring and improve grafting technologies given the complexity of facial topography. This project seeks to optimize and finalize a prototype of a 3D printed keratin facemask capable of ...

  10. POSS Nanochemical Technology for Radiation Hardened/Tolerant Systems

    SBC: HYBRID PLASTICS            Topic: MDA04036

    ABSTRACT:Specialty elastomers, such as hydrogenated acrylonitrile-butadiene rubber (HNBR) and fluoroelastomer (FKM), are widely utilized as high performance seals in numerous aerospace vehicles and components. The elastomer sealing industry and its products are primarily based on a limited pool of feedstocks that were last advanced in the 1970's. Using current technology, elastomeric seals must b ...
