  1. N/A

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The key innovation of this proposal is the use of Time Modulated Ultra-Wideband (TM-UWB) technology to develop a low cost radio system that allows both voice communication and tracking positions of fire fighters inside buildings. This radio has several characteristics which make it ideal for tracking multiple individuals without line-of-sight. During Phase I we have performed many tests, incl ...

  3. Lightweight Personal Protective Head Gear Communication System for the Dismounted Soldier

    SBC: ACG, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Phase I revealed a high priority need for a human factorial lightweight protective helmet that extends an adequate personal communication system and 360 degree situational awareness, as well as ballistic protection of dismounted soldiers. The proposedresearch addresses two most critical design issues: (a) human factors concerns and, (b) practical concerns voiced by dismounted soldiers. A Design fo ...

  5. Solid Freeform Fabrication of low cost, in situ, metallic foam components for high energy absorption applications

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In the phase I program, Advanced Ceramics Research, Inc. (ACR) fabricated in situ metallic foams by using a unique water-soluble polymer blend and ACR's Extrusion Freeform Fabrication (EFF) method. When the green parts were heated for binder burnout, thebinder was found to foam and create uniform closed, high-aspect ratio porosity. The freeform fabrication also could create open porosity ranging f ...

  7. Affordable Beamforming Network for TT&C Phased Array Antenna


    The current antennas of choice for earth stations are parabolic reflector antennas such as those used for tracking telemetry and control (TT&C) for the AFSCN. These antennas are required to have horizon-to-horizon, full-hemispherical coverage and oftenseveral antennas are required at each remote tracking station site. A single active hemispherical phased array antenna composed of flat panel suba ...

  8. Highly Monodispered MINIM Arrays for Single Electron Transistors

    SBC: AMSEN TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N/A

    As the current trends in transistor miniaturization are continued down to the molecular level ( in a dimension of tens of nanometers or less), the electronic properties of solids and solid-solid interfaces are inherently different on the nanometer level.It is becoming clear that continued increases in circuit density will require fairly dramatic changes in the way transistors are designed and ope ...
