  2. Environmental Control Unit with Integrated Thermal Storage

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD13EP1

    Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc. (ACT) proposes the development of an Environmental Control Unit (ECU) that uses an integrated Phase Change Material (PCM) to provide thermal energy storage. The PCM is contained within the system. During the thermal energy regeneration or collection stages of operation, the coolant is pumped through the PCM to remove or deposit thermal energy, respectively. I ...

  3. Advanced Programming and Teaching Interfaces for Autonomous System Control

    SBC: RobotWits LLC            Topic: OSD13HS1

    Achieving robust autonomy by demonstration is challenging for several reasons. First, it is important to be able to provide demonstrations in a way that they capture the key aspects of robot interaction with environment. Second, the interface for providing demonstrations needs to be friendly enough for a non-technical user such as a Soldier. Third, it is critical to be able to verify the safety of ...

  4. BLAST: A System for Bandwidth- and Latency-Scalable Teleoperation

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3

    Most current teleoperated ground vehicle systems require a high-bandwidth link to support either real-time streaming video or streamed 3D structure back to the operator control unit, and experience significant performance degradation in the presence of communication latencies as small as 100 milliseconds. These latency and bandwidth requirements severely hamper use of teleop systems in situations ...

  5. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  6. 120-X-2 Unmanned Aircraft System-Borne Atmospheric & Sea Surface Temperature (SST) Sensing

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: 84

    To capture critical weather and SST data in the Tropical Cyclone Boundary Layer (TCBL), Piasecki Aircraft proposes to evaluate existing meteorological sensor packages, integrate new off-the-shelf MEMS sensors, and design an air-launched UAS to improve the resolution of observations captured in the TCBL. Capturing latent and sensible heat fluxes can be achieved reliably with a powered UAS (compare ...

  7. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...
