  2. Near-Real-Time Integration of Soil State Information

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17130

    The Army requires the development of models for improving the state-of-the-art understanding of soil state characteristics in regions with varying observational input datasets. Currently, weather-scale remote sensing, mesoscale standoff sensing, and point-scale in situ sensing provide approximate measurements of near-surface soil moisture at different scales and extents of coverage. In addition, s ...

  5. Robust and Versatile Speed Sensor for Turbochargers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A18026

    Turbochargers are critical components of internal combustion engines on Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs). Control of the turbocharger speed is needed to avoid operation near resonant speeds and to optimize turbocharger performance and life. Currently, there are no robust flight sensors capable of measuring titanium blade turbocharger speeds at high temperatures with limited access. In the proposed ...

  6. Patient Transportable Tactical Combat Casualty Care Documentation Capability

    SBC: Cambridge Research & Development, Inc.            Topic: A18060

    CR&D will develop a hand-held, temporary tattoo printer designed to be used to print tattoos on the skin of warfighters at the POI or healthcare facility with the intent of replacing TC3 cards and aftercare instructions respectively. The intent is to eliminate the loss of information resulting from various touch-points along the continuum of care or in the days following outpatient release. Paperw ...

  7. Novel Remediation Technique for PFAS contaminated Soil and Sediment

    SBC: QMetry Corporation            Topic: 17NCER3A

    Both chemicals Perfluorooctane Sulfonate (PFOS) and Perfluorooctanoic Acid (PFOA) are very persistent, toxic, and bio-accumulate in the environment and human body. PFAS can end up in soil from multiple sources, often mixed with other pollutants. Because of their unique lipid- and water-repellent characteristics, PFOS and PFOA are used as surface-active agents in various high-temperature applicatio ...

  8. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  10. Deep-etched pixels for dualband SLS FPAs

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A18039

    Deep etching is necessary for pixel definition in multi-band infrared focal plane arrays (FPAs) consisting of stacked photodiodes.To eliminate optical crosstalk between pixels and improve modulation transfer function (MTF), the trenches between pixels have to be etched sufficiently deep, resulting in high aspect ratios greater than ~ 5-to-1 in short-pitch FPAs.The resulting loss in optical fill-fa ...
