  1. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

  2. Advanced Gel Bipropulsion Tank System

    SBC: ARDE, INC.            Topic: A03154

    Development of three Bipropellant Tank designs with mechanically linked pistons for Advanced Small Missile Systems. The study will consider the technical and fabrication issues associated with the design, and rate the comparative merits leading to the selection of Phase II continuation.

  3. Land Mine Detection by Time Reversal Acousto-seismic Method

    SBC: ARTANN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A03107

    The objective of the proposed research is to develop new technologies based on principles of Time Reversal Acoustics (TRA) that will provide highly sensitive land mine detection. We suggest applying the Time Reversal Acousto-seismic method in combination with a nonlinear acousto-seismic mine detection technique. The TRA focused system provides a high concentration of seismic wave energy at any des ...

  4. Skeletal Muscle Water Content Measurement Sensor/Tool

    SBC: ARTANN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A03156

    The objective of this proposal is to develop a Muscle Water Content (MWC) sensor, an ultrasonic device for assessment of body hydration status in soldiers with accuracy better than 2% during deployment and training. The MWC assessment is based on measurement of ultrasound velocity in muscle, which is, to a good approximation, a linear function of the water content. The expected outcome will be ...

  5. Develop New Innovative Filtration Designs and Components for Improved Service Life, Performance and Durability

    SBC: FILTRATION SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: A03231

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of an innovative engine fuel filter design that utilizes water-selective membrane technology to separate water and debris from the diesel fuel. This advanced design combines a cross-flow membrane element, a fuel by-pass valve, water detection sensor, and an automatic filter service life monitor into one fuel filter unit, which is de ...

  6. Orthogonal Coding for Code Division Multiple Access (CDMA)

    SBC: FREEDOM VERTICAL TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: A03122

    We propose to develop and assess an Orthogonal CDMA cellular communications system that capitalizes on the advantages associated with a unique pseudonoise (PN) code class identified as "Multiplexed Noise" (MN) codes. Employing MN codes for CDMA eliminates all of the major disadvantages of present CDMA systems that employ Maximal Length Sequence (MLS) codes. Those systems are forced to be non-orth ...

  7. Non-Invasive Glucose Monitoring Using Low-Coherence Interferometry

    SBC: MEDEIKON CORP.            Topic: OSD04DH2

    This project proposes a method for non-invasive glucose monitoring based on the analysis of changes in skin light scattering properties induced by changes of glucose levels in skin interstitial fluid. Comparing to other similar approaches, this project proposes a more accurate light-tissue interaction model, based on multiple scattering. The overall goal for Phase I is to demonstrate that the mult ...

  8. High Energy Density Li-ion Batteries With Good Low Temperature Performance

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: OSD04EP2

    High energy density Li-ion batteries that can operate over a wide temperature range are needed in a variety of military, space and commercial applications. The specific energy of Li-ion batteries can be enhanced by utilizing new cathode materials that have significantly higher energy density than that of state-of-the-art LiCoO2. Low temperature performance of Li-ion batteries can be improved by r ...

  9. Accelerated Drug Design Through Computational Biology

    SBC: Pbl Biomedical Laboratories            Topic: A03165

    Our initiative to design agents to combat Plasmodium falciparum, the most debilitating of several malaria strains, combines powerful bioinformatic techniques to develop protein target structures with a multifaceted strategy for rational drug design. Using the available x-ray crystal structure of CDK2 as a structural template, we will generate and validate three-dimensional structural models of th ...

  10. Innovative Long Life Power System/Battery Recharge System for Munitions

    SBC: PIEZOTHERMX CORP.            Topic: A03006

    The proposed effort is expected to result in a device that will maintain the charge on batteries that will be used in remote isolated munitions storage areas. The device will use the direct piezoelectric effect as actuated by fluctuations in the environment of the storage area. A NiTiNol actuator will be used to suplement the piezo actuator. The Phase I work will result in an early design and w ...
