  1. Individualized Fatigue Management Program Technology for Trucking Operations

    SBC: PULSAR INFORMATICS, INC.            Topic: 091FM1

    Individual differences in vulnerability to sleep loss and fatigue from extended work hours and night work are a substantial problem in transportation policy making, work schedule development, fatigue risk management strategies, and prediction of performance impairment in real-world operations (Van Dongen et al. 2003; Mollicone et al. 2010). Our group was the first to document the considerable magn ...

  2. A 6-DOF Motion Test Apparatus (MTA) for Characterizing the Dynamic Properties of Micro Air Vehicles

    SBC: RE2, INC.            Topic: AF093108

    ABSTRACT: The challenges in the operations of small unmanned aircraft systems (SUAS) and micro air vehicles (MAVs) in terms of required agility and benign flying qualities require a superior understanding of their basic flight mechanics and vehicle dynamics. Flight test data for MAVs are sparse, and wind tunnel unsteady aerodynamic data of MAVs with flexible wing structures are non-existent. Alth ...

  3. Nonlinear Dielectric Materials and Processing for High-Energy-Density Capacitors

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: AF103158

    ABSTRACT: TRS Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop nonlinear dielectric ceramic capacitors for discharge pulse power application and reduce the production cost of cofired multilayer capacitors. In the phase I program TRS developed a new antiferroelectric composition showing energy density>4J/cc at a field as low as 200kV/cm and demonstrated that high breakdown strength can be achieved from ant ...

  4. Rapid, contamination-free growth of larger size aluminum oxynitride (AlON) and aluminum nitride (AlN) single crystals

    SBC: General Opto Solutions, LLC            Topic: A10061

    The objective of this SBIR Phase II effort is to grow larger size (50 mm diameter x 25 mm thick or larger) single crystals of aluminum oxynitride (AlON) and aluminum nitride (AlN) by refining and optimizing the rapid and contamination free growth method developed at the Phase I stage. The major properties of the single crystals will be quantitatively characterized and evaluated. The crystals shoul ...

  5. Hybrid 4D Braided Textiles for High Pressure Layflat Hoseline (MSC P 4035)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: A09185

    Layflat hoseline is used in Army water and fuel systems to transport bulk fluid over varying distances. Ease of storage, layout, and retrieval are desired characteristics offered by layflat hoses currently in use. In order to meet the Armys need for an improved hoseline with a higher working pressure, new approaches to integrating higher strength fibers and optimizing fiber orientation in the hose ...

  6. Optimized Data Management Services (ODMS) for Tactical Environments


    In this Phase II SBIR project, Daniel H. Wagner Associates will develop a full-scale prototype Optimized Data Management Services (ODMS) for Tactical Environments and its primary service oriented components: the Enterprise Information Acquisition Service (EIAS) and the Information Flow Optimization Services (IFOS). Our main goal is to transition CMA service oriented components into current and eme ...

  7. MH-60S Vertical Replenishment Object Proximity Warning System

    SBC: Piasecki Aircraft Corporation            Topic: N093186

    In Phase II, PiAC and CMU plan to develop and demonstrate an operational prototype of a VERTREP Object Proximity Warning System (OPWS) sensor and software. The prototype will be evaluated in a subscale demonstration using the actual sensor package and a surrogate mechanical system to simulate rotorcraft motion to land on a scaled ship deck undergoing pitch, roll, and heave motions. The operator wi ...

  8. Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS)

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N101042

    The U.S. Navy requires a new Environmental Wideband Acoustic Receiver and Source (EWARS) sensor to facilitate the gathering of environmental data from Navy ASW platforms. The newly developed EWARS sensor must be deployable in shallow and deep environments, and be capable of operating over a broad spectrum of frequencies. EWARS also requires calibration accuracy, digital uplink format/precision, an ...

  9. Target Localization Using Multi-Static Sonar with Drifting Sonobuoys

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC INNOVATIONS INC            Topic: N093168

    A novel yet mature technique will be used to assimilate coherent-source multistatic ASW data obtained from drifting acoustic sources and receivers. We will demonstrate the technique's ability to correctly estimate the locations of drifting buoys from acoustic data only even when the buoys may drift significant distances during a mission.

  10. Multipaction Resistant RF Components for Satellites

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N102190

    Satellite RF components suffer from an additional design limitation that does not concern their terrestrial counterparts: multipaction, an electron avalanche effect that can reduce performance or permanently damage devices under certain conditions. To avoid the onset of this effect, the traditional options are increasing the component size (more specifically, gap widths) or reducing operating powe ...
