  1. Transformation of carbon emissions to high-value products through a two-step electrochemical platform

    SBC: LECTROLYST LLC            Topic: G

    Carbon dioxide utilization can help reduce carbon emissions, but gaps remain in the value chain from initial capture to high-value products. Lectrolyst LLC will develop an electrochemical platform centered on selective two-step conversion of CO2 to acetic acid and ethylene, to fill this need. Preliminary life cycle assessment and techno-economic analyses indicate ~200 million metric tons of CO2 em ...

  3. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  5. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  6. Coordination and Cooperation in Ad-Hoc Networks in Congested and Contested Environments

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18051

    There is a definite need for tactical ad-hoc networks to understand to which degree communications can still occur in congested and contested environments where power sources are short-lived, the spectrum is limited and where jamming (both friendly and adversarial) can occur spontaneously and without warning. In this situation, network nodes will need to cooperate and coordinate negotiate ways for ...

  7. Medical Sensors Powered by Human Generated Energy

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A18061

    To meet the demands of the A18-061 SBIR solicitation ("Medical Sensors Powered by Human Generated Energy"), MaXentric proposes an energy harvesting system that generates power directly from the users' body. This harvesting system, when integrated with a sensor patch, results in a system with greatly extended continuous use time allowing for application in "prolonged field care" scenarios. The enti ...

  8. Innovative Bridge Launch Linkage Assembly


    The US Army currently uses the Armored Vehicle-Launched Bridge (AVLB) to temporarily span gaps in the terrain such as rivers, ravines or replace blown-up bridges. The launch system utilizes an in-bridge hydraulic cylinder and cable-pulley system to deploy and retrieve the 63-foot-long scissor type bridge. This hydraulic cylinder and cable- pulley system is bulky, heavy and adds significant load to ...

  9. Radio Direction Finding Obfuscation

    SBC: Aspen Consulting Group Inc            Topic: A18109

    The proliferation of low-cost and highly capable Software Defined Radios (SDR) makes it difficult for the soldier to keep his/her communications systems secure from adversary SIGINT systems that can find, fix and finish radio frequency emitters. Radio communication systems that were not designed with this level of threat in mind are susceptible to exploitation, specifically in the area of geolocat ...
