  2. High-Frequency, Surface-Mounted Nanomembrane based Strain Sensors for Non-Intrusive Pressure Measurements

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A20029

    This DOD Phase I SBIR program would develop high-frequency, surface-mounted nanomembrane based strain sensors for non-intrusive pressure measurements. Such non-intrusive pressure sensors will be implemented using a series of surface-mounted high frequency nanomembrane strain sensors and supporting data acquisition and signal processing electronics, that are applied to existing gun tubes for dynami ...

  3. Reusable, Soft Catch System for Large Projectiles Traveling at High Speeds

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A20031

    The Army has a need to catch and recover projectiles after launch without damage to assess internal ballistics, design strength, and the function of the critical munition components (e.g. deployable fins and fuzes) . There is currently no system that can catch and recover large munitions traveling at high speeds without damaging the projectile. Current materials used to soft catch projectiles cons ...

  4. Cyber Terrain and Electromagnetic Operating Environment (EMOE) Scenario Generation Toolkit (CTAEMOESGT)

    SBC: SILVER BULLET SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A20038

    Cyber Electromagnetic Activities (CEMA) cross-cuts fires, aviation, other operations, and many aspects of Doctrine, Organization, Training, Materiel, Leadership and education, Personnel, and Facilities (DOTMLPF).  Knowledge of the interdependencies is critical to CEMA planning and executing a combined arms effect inside cyberspace.  This integration is a new concept and the transition is still i ...

  5. Air Surveillance Radar Classification Improvement

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A20039

    Increasingly capable Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) have made the accurate identification of such threats an important aspect of battlefield situational awareness. Army Counter-fire Target Acquisition (CTA) radars, including the man-portable AN/TPQ-50 and larger long-range AN/TPQ-53, provide the greatest opportunity to incorporate more advanced air target classification techniques because they are ...

  6. Mitigation of GMTI Radar False Alarms

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A20040

    Modern GMTI radar systems can detect the movement of unwanted clutter, including wind-blown foliage, waves, and rotating objects. The resulting false alarms create a distraction for radar operators who can miss critical information or improperly allocate resources. Machine Learning (ML) techniques provide a means of classifying detections and discarding these false alarms. In doing so, radar sensi ...

  7. DOCTRINe-based AIded target REcognition (DOCTRINAIRE)

    SBC: Covar Applied Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A20043

    Modern AiTR approaches can be significantly improved by understanding how DoD training doctrine can be incorporated into the AiTR problem.  DoD training enables persons with limited a priori knowledge of different military actions to reliably classify potential threats based on some simple rules about the relationships between entity components (e.g., wheels, wings, rotors, windows). Most modern ...

  8. Additive Nanostructured Arrays for BBAR

    SBC: IRFLEX CORPORATION            Topic: A20045

    U.S. Army sensor systems are complex and include many optical elements of different infrared lensing materials (Ge, ZnS, GaAs, and CaF2) to fully compensate for the optical aberrations over the broad 3-12 micron band.  Typical anti-reflective (AR) interference coatings are employed on the infrared optics to reduce Fresnel reflections.  However, broadband AR (BBAR) interference coatings for 3-12 ...
