  4. TSR-SHIELD: Time & Spatially Resolved Standoff Hyperspectral Imaging Explosives LIDAR Detector

    SBC: ChemImage Sensor Systems            Topic: A06T006

    Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) is being successfully transitioned to field applications in both close-contact (proximity) and standoff detection modes. LIBS is attractive since it can be used to detect a wide range of chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) hazardous materials. While LIBS is well suited to evaluation of complex hazards, including improvised explosive devices (IEDs) ...

  6. Energy Scavenging Ankle Component for Self-Charging Batteries on Prosthetic Limbs

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T031

    KCF Technologies will develop an energy scavenging device as a component in the ankle of a lower extremity prosthetic limb. The component will be designed and demonstrated on a C-Leg, in collaboration with Otto Bock USA. The component will capture and store energy during normal activities such as walking and running. The captured energy will automatically recharge the batteries of the C-Leg. T ...

  7. New Energetic Solid Propellant Ingredients

    SBC: MACH I Inc.            Topic: OSD05T001

    Boron has significant potential as a high energy density fuel in munitions and propellants. Its superior energy density makes it attractive as a fuel component in conventional solid propellants, as well as fuel slurries for ramjet applications. For a ramjet ducted rocket, theoretical density impulses of 1600-1800 sec-g/cm3 have been reported, 45% higher than the best hydrocarbon formulation. Bo ...

  9. Intracranial Hematoma/ Burr Hole and Trauma Flap Simulator

    SBC: VEREFI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD05T004

    Traumatic brain injury has dramatically increased in military and civilian settings owing to widespread bombings and improvised explosive devices. In many battlefield settings, the availability of neurosurgeons is limited. However, rapid treatment of intracranial hematomas can save lives and limit permanent neurologic sequelae. Training non-neurosurgeons to perform emergency burr holes and limi ...
