  2. In-situ Measurement of Automotive Fluids Degradation by Micro-ESR Spectrometry

    SBC: AESOP, INC.            Topic: A05223

    Optimized preventative maintenance schedules and in-situ monitoring of vehicle fluid conditions are essential for vehicle reliability, especially when operating in extreme conditions. In the particular case of engine oil, while many types of sensors exist, none directly measure in real time the chemical changes occurring as the oil degrades. A novel, miniature electron spin resonance oil condition ...

  3. ZnO Based Light Emitters for UV/Blue Applications

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: A04068

    The goal of this effort is to grow n and p ZnO thin films by MOCVD on ZnO substrates. The primary objective of this phase I effort will be to grow p-n homojucntion and characterize the LED structure. Bandgap of ZnO will be engineered and heterojunction quantum wells will be grown. The grown device structures will be characterized for structure and quality by X-ray, PL and electron microscopy, The ...

  5. Compact, Lightweight Water Filtration for the Soldier

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A03240

    Provision of clean drinking water poses a significant challenge to Army units in the field. Due to the quantity of water required and its substantial weight, soldiers can only carry a limited supply, and sustainment of soldiers through centralized resupply poses major logistical hurdles in many situations. Existing portable water filters to not meet the need to treat locally available water supp ...

  6. Borazane Hydrogen Generator for Portable Fuel Cells

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05034

    Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells convert hydrogen fuel directly to electric power and offer a lightweight and efficient power source for individual soldiers. However, technology for storing the hydrogen fuel is still too heavy to meet the Army's mission requirements. We propose to develop a very lightweight hydrogen generator based on borazane (H3NBH3). Our innovation is a unique p ...

  7. Laser-Assisted Seamless Joining of Ceramic Gun Barrels

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05045

    Recent advances in armament munitions technology driven by increased muzzle velocity and range specifications require the consideration of silicon nitride ceramic materials for the inner bore of gun barrels. While this material is an excellent candidate, the tight dimensional tolerances required limit the ceramic tube length to 200 mm or less. Hence, innovative joining techniques are required to ...

  8. Two-Way Bone Conduction Communication System for High Noise Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05041

    Bone conduction communication has the potential to offer many advantages for communication between Army personnel carrying out their missions. This will be especially important for the Future Force Warrior (FFW) where stealth operations, hearing protection, or environmental noise will make communication with acoustic conduction either impossible or not advisable. The goal of this project is to de ...

  9. A Java API for Low-Level Socket Network Access

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A04107

    Modern military computer applications are increasingly using the Java computer language. While Java provides a versatile cross-platform computing environment with strong security and ease-of-use (, this support is limited to traditional TCP/IP socket-style communications, and lacks the ability for the programmer to directly access lower levels of the network protocol stack, such a ...

  10. Smart Snap Hook

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05193

    U.S. Army mass tactical airborne operations occasionally experience the accidental towing of a parachutist due to improper parachute deployment and/or entanglement with the static line. This event sometimes goes undetected for long periods of time after the affected jumper has left the aircraft. This can result in serious or fatal injury of the towed parachutist or subsequent jumpers who make co ...
