  1. Composite Tank Design to Limit Fatigue-Induced Microcracking

    SBC: COMPOSITE TECHNOLOGY DEVELOPMENT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) program, Composite Technology Development, Inc. (CTD) and our Research Institution partner North Dakota State University (NDSU) propose to implement a integrated systematic approach to designingreusable composite tanks for ABL applications. The primary goals of the Phase I program include understanding the mechanism of microcrack growth in ...

  2. Evaluation of Multiple Approaches for Automated Gesture Recognition

    SBC: DEVELOSOFT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DeveloSoft proposes to use its considerable carrier automation experience to investigate three main approaches for gesture recognition. First, we will evaluate either Measurand ShapeTape or micro-accelerometers for direct measurement of arm and handpositions. Second, we will investigate an imaging approach using LEDs or reflective tape... both with specially tuned optics and frequencies which wo ...

  3. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  4. Micromachined, Three-Dimensionally Integrated RF or RF-Optoelectronic Circuit Components

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project is to develop three-dimensionally integrated packages for mixed DC/RF and optical inputs using micromachining techniques. There are many optoelectronic device designs that have showngreat promise in the research laboratory, but have demonstrated degraded response once packaged. The proposed effort will develop advanced packagi ...

  7. Develop and/or Improve Optical Coating Processes for Military Mirrors

    SBC: FLEXIAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Develop a titanium, welded metal bellows extendable sunshade to deploy over seeker system optics in kinetic kill vehicles and other military missile systems that employ optical tracking. One object of the sunshade is to offer an alternative technology tohelp improve the durability of optical coatings by minimizing thermal gradients on the coatings as would be generated by free airflow across the ...

  8. Commercial Development of Stabilized Cellular Diagnostics and Therapeutics to Lessen Logistical Burden on the Battlefield

    SBC: Greystone Pharmaceuticals, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Blood loss of over 30% is a life-threatening condition. Excessive blood loss results in hemorrhagic shock (HS), which is caused by insufficient blood perfusion to vital organs. As HS persists or as additional blood is lost, vital organs fail and thepatient dies. HS causes 20% of all battlefield casualties that could otherwise be saved and, annually, 150,000 civilians in the US die from HS. In life ...

  9. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  10. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis through Latent Semantic Analysis

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Knowledge Analysis Technologies (K-A-T) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) will partner to fulfill this Research and Development effort. We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to bebuilt upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LS ...
