  1. Multi-Analyte, Wearable Chemical Nanosensor for Warfighter Physiological Status Monitor (WPSM)

    SBC: Elintrix            Topic: A07T035

    There is a large unmet need for low-power sensor systems. This is not due to a lack of transducers, for there are many physical properties of a molecule or nanostructure that can be harnessed to perform the basic sensing task. The absence is due to problems in integrating science with technology into a small, portable, packageable scale. While it is relatively easy for the instrument designer t ...

  2. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The Army has identified solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) power systems as a potential solution to a variety of power needs ranging from roughly 0.1 - 100 kW. Reformed JP-8, the Army logistics fuel, can be used as the feed, but the fuel sulfur content must first be reduced to 10 ppm. We plan to test a novel ultrasonic slurry reactor as part of a compact desulfurization process for treatment of sulfur ...

  3. Segmented Co-Polymer for Alkaline Fuel Cell Membranes

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A07T016

    Alkaline fuel cells (AFCs) have many advantages over proton exchange membrane fuel cells (PEMFCs) including more rapid electrode kinetics, ability to use non-noble metal catalysts, and the ability to use lower cost materials of construction. AFC drawbacks include the use of a liquid electrolyte such as concentrated KOH that can introduce problems such as the formation of insoluble carbonates, resu ...

  4. Nostra: Power System Condition Monitoring and Prognostics

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: A07T013

    Complex electro-mechanical systems will inevitably fail. These failures can be mitigated by modeling the system and predicting failures. We propose to build Nostra, a system that takes knowledge from domain experts as well as observed data and creates a model-based inference system for predicting failure in electronic systems. The Nostra system consists of three parts: a model, an inference eng ...

  5. Algorithms for Image Content Indexing and Information Retrieval from Unstructured or Semi-structured Complex Database

    SBC: Isca Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A07T008

    Humans take for granted their extraordinary visual abilities, however efforts to give such abilities to computers have meet with limited success thus far. Objects may be difficult for a computer to recognize/index because they are partly occluded, viewed from an unusual angle, because they blend into the background due to low contrast (or camouflage), or more generally because the best features (c ...

  6. A CAD-Based Software Tool for Design and Analysis of Materials under Ballistic Impact

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: A07T014

    In battlefield environments, ballistic impact may result in the failure of military structures and materials, including armor. To improve the reliability and safety of military structures and materials, it is important to study material failure under ballistic impact in the design stage. There are two main failure phenomena related to the material response due to ballistic impact. One is adiaba ...

  7. Dynamic Data-Driven Prognostics and Condition Monitoring of On-board Electronics

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A07T013

    Degradation and failure prognostics in electronic systems is a growing requirement for both military and civilian sectors of 21st century. US Army's FCS will extensively use complex electronic systems. To enhance functionality, survivality, and mission success probability of FCS platforms while limiting the logistic footprint, efficient prognostic health management is essential. Qualtech Systems, ...

  8. Discontinuous Element Software for Computing 2D and 3D Failure of Materials under Ballistic Impact

    SBC: SYMPLECTIC ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: A07T014

    Adiabatic shear banding and spalling play an important role in material failure during ballistic impact. Modeling software that can accurately account for these failure mechanisms could benefit the development of new ballistic armor. Recently, researchers have made a number of theoretical advancements in understanding these two failure modes, which are yet to be worked into numerical schemes. Ad h ...

  9. Development of Amorphous Alloy Surface Coatings as Replacement for Chromate Technology

    SBC: ELECTRO CHEMICAL FINISHING            Topic: A07T010

    Electrodeposited chromium films have played a key role in the advancement of industrial technology over the past century. Unfortunately, such coatings have a critical problem, namely, the electroplating solution involves hexavalent Cr, which is a severe occupational and environmental hazard. We have produced a proprietary refractory amorphous metallic film that has a nanoindentation hardness app ...

  10. Portable Fully-Automated Soil Property Measurement Probe

    SBC: CSA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: A07T015

    The CSA-UCDavis team proposes to develop a soil measurement device to allow for rapid and accurate measurement of soil parameters in order to rapidly and accurately characterize the terrain. The device will be man-portable but also allow for mounting to a small robotic vehicle. Parameters that will be measured include but are not limited to cone index, soil friction index, as well as soil shear ...
