  1. Thermal Bus Technology for Next Generation Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A03228

    A number of trends are coming together in the next generation combat systems and tactical vehicles, which will greatly increase the heat loads that must be managed within the vehicle while also increasing the number of heat sources and dispersing these sources over most of the vehicle volume. Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT), supported by Hamilton Sundstrand and Thermacore/Modine, will de ...

  2. Development and flight test demonstration of an innovative practical Autonomous Formation Flying System (AFFS) for manned rotorcraft.

    SBC: Aerotonomy, Incorporated            Topic: A05T011

    Aerotonomy, Incorporated and our Research Institution partner the Georgia Institute of Technology (GIT) will combine an innovative adaptive guidance system, the latest knowledge in autonomous adaptive rotorcraft control, and intuitive pilot interface techniques to arrive at a safe, practical, Autonomous Formation Flying System (AFFS) for manned rotorcraft. This Phase I project will culminate in a ...

  3. Fabrication of 3D Photonic Crystals in the RF Range for Man-Portable Antenna Applications

    SBC: Antennovation            Topic: A05T017

    Antennovation and the Pennsylvania State University propose to develop novel new electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) materials in conjunction with miniaturized broadband antennas for use in man-portable antenna applications. The proposed antenna/EBG system will be designed to be low-profile, compact, and light-weight for helmet-mounted antennas and/or other body-worn applications. The frequency range o ...

  4. A Payload, Controller and Communications Toolkit for Small Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A05221

    The use of small unmanned ground vehicles in both military and civilian operations is rapidly growing. Unfortunately, vendors today only offer their own proprietary Operator Control Units and vehicle payloads that can only be used with their vehicle platform. The objective of this Phase I effort is to design a toolkit of common and interchangeable components for small unmanned ground vehicles to p ...

  5. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A04038

    Current robotic controllers place a great deal of emphasis on graphical control methods. While graphics and visualization are an important and critical method for controlling robotic assets, they are not sufficient in all cases. The ideal robotic controller would enable the soldier to interact with the robot in the same manner as he interacts with other subordinates, with there being no distinctio ...

  6. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: APPLIED PERCEPTION, INC.            Topic: A04038

    With the anticipated deployment of technologies developed under programs like Future Force Warrior and Future Combat Systems, there is a growing need for a common method for human-robot interaction. This is particularly true for dismounted infantry, since they are often in situations where small, lightweight, easy to use interfaces are a necessity rather than a luxury. There are a growing number o ...

  7. Soldier Universal Robot Controller

    SBC: CHATTEN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A04038

    We propose a universal OCU that will control small robots of different types. The operator interface is displayed on a helmet-mounted micro-display. The control inputs are a head-aimed camera system in conjunction with a controller (thumbstick and two buttons) that is integrated into the operator's rifle stock/grip. The result is an intuitive interface that allows the operator to "look around" ...

  8. Nondestructive Testing for Service Life Prediction of Reinforced Concrete Structures

    SBC: CARLYLE CONSULTING            Topic: A01146

    We propose to build a practical, field-ready instrument that can determine the remaining life of reinforced concrete structures via the ultrasonic measurement of crack length. The Phase I prototype instrument not only measured crack lengths inside concrete beams, it was also sensitive enough to detect micro-cracks in the concrete (a world’s first), as well as interface failure between the mortar ...

  9. Concrete Admixtures that Defend against Salt Scaling and Freeze-Thaw

    SBC: CEMENT CHEMISTRY SYSTEMS, LP            Topic: OSD04C05

    In cold climates, concretes are susceptible to deterioration from the combination of the use of deicing salts and cyclic freezing and thawing cycles. The presence of salts is reported to exacerbate the susceptibility of concrete to freeze-thaw deterioration. IPANEX is an admixture that has been in use for nearly 30 years and has a long track record of compatibility with plasticizers and air entr ...

  10. Pulsed Power for Fuzes

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: A05209

    TRS Technologies, Inc. along with CalRamic, LLC, and HEM Technologies, LLC will develop and test new ferroelectric generator components and very high energy density capacitors to dramatically reduce the size of detonation systems designed around multipoint Explosive Foil Initiators (EFI). We will develop high energy, highly efficient ferroelectric discharge elements for ferroelectric explosive gen ...
