  1. Weapon System Intermittent Fault Detection

    SBC: Livewire Test Labs, Inc            Topic: AF083113

    ABSTRACT: Weapon systems or other high value electrical systems within the US military are all subject to wiring faults and degradation. Additionally, weapon systems are kept in service longer because of shrinking defense budgets, further compounding the risks associated with wiring systems. The ability to detect and provide the location of existing wiring problems or pending failures is critic ...

  2. EW Countermeasures Against Passive MMW Sensors

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N092133

    An emerging class of passive millimeter-wave (pmmW) sensors currently provides an unmitigated threat to the US Navy. While considerable effort has been expended reducing RADAR signatures of the next generation of Naval vessels, these ship designs often present significant signatures to pmmW sensors. To date, little has been done to understand or reduce these signatures. However, as a new class of ...

  3. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  4. Modeling and Simulation Tools for Predicting Hypergolicity in Energetic Ionic Liquids

    SBC: WASATCH MOLECULAR, INC.            Topic: AF083125

    ABSTRACT: Building on the demonstrated in Phase-I success of application of molecular dynamics (MD) simulations for investigation of hypergolic and non-hypergolic ionic liquid(IL)-based fuels, we propose to develop and validate a set of simulation tools and empirical correlations that will allow to predict hypergolicity of a wide variety IL/oxidizer combinations. The proposed simulation tools wil ...

  8. High Speed Light Weight Omnidirectional Vehicle with Enhanced Manipulator Control

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A06216

    There is an urgent need for a man-transportable EOD robot which can quickly traverse the distance between its operator and the suspected UXO, perform manipulation tasks requiring high dexterity, and then quickly return. This proposal describes an innovative solution to this need called ‘Taz’. Taz will weigh 40 kg, be capable of 40 kph for up to 8 hours, and will offer high dexterity manipulati ...

  9. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...
