  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. ELIMINATION OF TURBULENCE-INDUCED STRUCTURAL FAILURE AND CONTROL LOSS IN VERY LIGHT AIRCRAFT

    SBC: Daedalus Research Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A SYSTEM UTILIZING THE FREE-WING CONCEPT HAS BEEN DESIGNED FOR LIGHT AND VERY LIGHT WING-LOADING AIRCRAFT THAT ACCOMMODATES MODERATE TO HEAVY TURBULENCE WITHOUT TRANSMITTING HIGH GUST LOADINGS TO THE AIRFRAME OR THREATENING LOSS OF CONTROL. THE PROJECT WILL TEST THE SYSTEM IN A RESEARCH VEHICLE APPROXIMATING THE DESIGN CRITERIA SET FORTH IN 14 CFR, PART 103; THE RESEARCH VEHICLE IS UNMANNED.

  4. HEAT EXCHANGE MATRIX

    SBC: Elanco Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HEAT EXCHANGE MATRIX THE FUNCTION OF A HEAT EXCHANGER IS DEPENDENT UPON THE AREA OF EXPOSURE TO THE FLUIDS IN PROCESS. FINS ARE COMMONLY USED TO INCREASE EXTERNAL SURFACE AREAS. TO EXTEND THE INNER SURFACE OF A TUBE OR VESSEL IS MORE DIFFICULT AND THERE IS CURRENTLY NO COST EFFECTIVE METHOD TO DO SO. THIS REDEARCH IS TO DEVELOP THE USE OF A MATRIX COMPOSED OF SMALL, HOLLOW, METAL CYLINDERS, BRAZED ...

  5. Electromagnetic-Based Computer Aided Design (CAD) for Wavelength Scale Optics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is the continued integration of systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. While this has led to personal computers that offer more functionality and faster computational speeds, ithas also spurred the development of hybrid optoelectronic systems on a chip (SOCs). Currently, such SOCs are receiving significant interest fro ...

  7. Collaborative Engagement with Unmanned Systems

    SBC: PROCERUS TECHNOLOGIES LC            Topic: A06052

    Procerus Technologies and Renaissance Sciences are teaming together to provide critical technologies for collaborative engagement of ground targets by platoons of unmanned systems (UMS). We have developed a cooperative control strategy for platoons of UMS with specific focus on unmanned air vehicles (UAVs). Using this strategy we have demonstrated, using hardware-in-the-loop simulation, the abil ...

  8. Advanced Intrusion Detection Techniques

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N/A

    The Army Chemical Stockpile Disposal Program (CSDP) is charged withdestroying the nation's deteriorating stockpile of highly toxic chemicalagents and munitions. This has proven to be a technically challenging,lengthy (20 year projected effort) and costly ($15 billion and increasing)endeavor. Incineration technology is the basis for most of the chemicaldemilitarization activities. Improved incinera ...
