  1. 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) ...

  2. SUGV-Integrated Non-Contact Deep UV Biochemical Agent Surface Detector (UVBASD)

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06T029

    This proposal addresses the need for miniature, low power, reagentless, robot-mounted, instruments for real-time detection and classification of trace concentrations of biological and chemical agents on surfaces. Deep UV laser induced native fluorescence (UVLINF) is the most sensitive technique for detection and rough classification of trace amounts of biological and organic materials. Photon Sy ...

  3. Software tools for optimization of hybrid fuel cell power supplies

    SBC: Mesoscopic Devices LLC            Topic: A06T014

    The military’s needs for soldier portable power are growing rapidly, and the only way to address this power need today is through batteries. Fuel cell power systems offer the potential of greatly reduced weight to support the soldier’s power needs, but fuel cell power systems today are only poorly optimized. To enable optimization of the fuel cell power systems for given user-specified power ...

  4. Passive Object Detection System

    SBC: MIRMAR SENSORS, LLC            Topic: A06T016

    Imaging with X-rays and gamma rays is a long established technique. It is possible with recent technological advances that standard transmission radiography may be extended to self-radiography, where the natural radioactivity of the object itself and the surrounding matrix is used as the source of X-rays. Self-radiography is much more complex than traditional radiography, chiefly because it depend ...

  5. Modeling Software and Tools for Reliability Engineering of Micro/Nano-Device Systems and Components

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: A06T002

    Simulation techniques play an important role in material and device design at the nanoscale. Among these techniques, molecular dynamics (MD) simulation has become a powerful tool for revealing complex physical phenomena. However, completely modeling nano-structured materials and nano-devices of tangible size using MD simulation is unrealistic, even when using today’s most powerful supercomputers ...

  6. Low Power Retroreflectors for Optical Communications

    SBC: Scientific Applications & Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: A06T005

    Optical retro-reflectors have been used for communications for many years. The approach has many advantages, when one terminal has limited power, space, weight, and a low cost as requirements. The major limitation for “Retro-Comms” has been that the modulator consumes too much power at higher modulation rates. What we propose is to reduce the power, size, weight and cost of the Retro-Modula ...

  7. Low-Cost Production of Engineered Proteins in Transgenic Plants

    SBC: Edenspace Systems Corporation            Topic: A06T015

    Plants provide an attractive platform for the production of recombinant proteins because they require significantly less capital investment than microbial fermentation systems and can be easily scaled up to produce additional protein. Edenspace proposes to develop a versatile plant expression system with tobacco to produce and purify proteins with therapeutic and industrial purposes. The gene ex ...

  8. Implicit Level Set Based Software for Generating Geometrically and Topologically Accurate Urban Terrain Models Using Implicit Methods

    SBC: Level Set Systems            Topic: A06T011

    We propose a new method developed by our employees and collaborators for the digital representation of real world objects. This will result in an implicit surface urban terrain model that interpolates raw point cloud data. The method can handle complex topologies and geometries easily. Topology changes pose no difficulties. The key idea involves shrink wrapping an implicit surface around data poin ...

  9. High-throughput Direct Structural Screening for Drug Lead Compounds

    SBC: Natural Selection, Incorporated            Topic: A06T032

    The Army has an obvious and immediate need for greater exploration of small molecules in the search for novel anti-malarial drugs. The innovative techniques offered in this proposal utilize methods of iterated automated fragment assembly coupled with an intelligent compound screening tool to facilitate scientific advancement. The resulting computational methods can increase the rate and exploratio ...

  10. Gaseous, Liquid and Gelled Propellant Hypergolic Reaction Mechanisms

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: A06T001

    This proposed STTR Phase I program addresses elucidation of the underlying physics and chemistry associated with ignition delay in hypergolic propulsion systems. More specifically it addresses if the differences observed in ignition delay for liquid and gelled hypergolic propulsion systems are due to mainly physical and/or chemical effects. Proposed mechanisms will be developed for the gas/gas, l ...
