  1. Machine-Learning Based Sensing and Waveform Adaptation for SDRs Operating in Congested and Contested Environment

    SBC: Space Micro Inc.            Topic: A19CT005

    Unprecedented growth in demand of wireless devices has caused overcrowding of the spectrum. Modern Software Defined Radios (SDRs) have to provide satisfactory services while transmitting/receiving in congested and contested environment. In order to do that, complex learning algorithms have to be paired with capable, flexible and wideband hardware.Space Micro and its partner research institution, t ...

  2. Freeform Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT001

    Traditional spherical optics implemented on a common optical axis are the foundation of today’s fielded gunsights for small arms fire control. SA Photonics has helped pioneer the application of precision injection molded freeform optical surfaces in head/helmet mounted display (HMD) systems for augmented reality (AR), virtual reality (VR) and low light level sensor applications. SA Photonics tea ...

  3. Automating U-spline fluid-structure model development for mobility applications

    SBC: Coreform LLC            Topic: A19BT006

    Dr. Thomas J.R. Hughes, senior advisor at Coreform, first introduced isogeometric analysis (IGA) in 2005. In the years since, it has been shown that smooth splines, the basic building blocks of IGA, allow for the use of relatively coarse meshes for accurate analysis in both finite element analysis (FEA) and computational fluid dynamics (CFD). Research results also show that IGA delivers improved a ...

  4. Passive, Non-powered Re-chargeable Heat Storage Systems for Cold Climate Operations

    SBC: 2W ITECH LLC            Topic: A19BT014

    Next-level improvements in thermal extremity protection for the current Extended Cold Weather Clothing System (ECWCS) are needed for soldiers in order to improve mobility and achieve peak performance in bitterly cold Arctic climes. In this STTR program, 2W iTech LLC proposes to develop phase change material (PCM) based thermal regulating films, in collaboration with the Multiscale Thermal Science ...

  5. High Performance, Non-flammable Lithium Battery

    SBC: American Lithium Energy Corp.            Topic: A19BT016

    The ALE-PNNL Team is developing a nonflammable high capacity and high power 18650 cell using nonflammable electrolyte for military electric vehicle and energy storage applications. The 18650 cells will be nonflammable even under extreme temperature conditions and after metal penetration, even including bullet penetration.

  6. Laser Activated Plasma (LAPLAS) for Standoff Electronic Denial

    SBC: Advanced Systems & Technologies Inc            Topic: A19CT007

    Robotic systems in general, and Unmanned Arial Vehicles (UAVs) in particular, pose a threat for both military and civilians when in the wrong hands. The triad of Kinetic, High-Power Microwave and Laser weapon systems currently used or considered for Counter-UAV (C-UAV) operation though effective in disrupting their performance, might be hazardous when used in a populated area. In this Phase I prog ...

  8. High Purity H2 from Sunlight via a Unique Combination of Novel Photodiodes and Membranes

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: A19BT015

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) together with University of Michigan (UMich) proposes a system to use solar energy to convert water to ultra-high purity compressed hydrogen suitable for PEM fuel cells. We will combine UMich’s high efficiency photocatalytic water splitting approach with PCI’s integrated hydrogen separator/compressor. The proposed effort will confirm the avoidance of external e ...

  10. Exploiting Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms for Extreme Performance

    SBC: Fit Genetics, Inc.            Topic: A19BT008

    Advances in DNA sequencing technology have generated a rapid expansion of human genome information and the revelation of extraordinary individual-level genetic variation. Individual genome sequencing will soon be routine and cost-effective. To exploit this resource to the benefit of warfighters, we propose an approach for identifying and characterizing genetic variants that compromise metabolic ef ...
