  1. 20-kW Bismuth Hall Thruster with Evaporative Anode

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: AF04198

    High-power Hall thrusters operating at high thrust-to-power ratios will consume and emit unprecedented amounts of xenon propellant. The inherent costs associated with xenon use have significantly hindered development of such devices. Metallic propellants, specifically bismuth, have recently emerged as potentially higher-performing, lower-cost alternatives to xenon. When used in a Hall thruster ...

  2. 3D Haptic Femur Interface for Medical Training

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: OSD04DH1

    Medical personnel in training learn by practicing on real patients under supervision. Although effective, this approach is fraught with potential risks for both patient and trainee. Technological success involving other virtual training environments suggests that medical simulation has great potential to improve training time, quality, and efficiency; enhance patient care; and reduce medical risk ...

  4. 42-Volt Vehicle System Conversion

    SBC: AMERICAN SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A02249

    The Phase I effort began with a survey of 42-Volt research and development. All vehicle and top-tier component manufacturers recognize the numerous benefits of 42-Volt electrical systems for improved performance, fuel efficiency, packaging, and emissions. However, it was quickly determined that the commercial automotive industry has significantly reduced the pace of 42-Volt adaptation and there ...

  5. A Personal Virtual Collaborative Maintenance System (PVCMS)

    SBC: Cybernet Systems Corporation            Topic: AF04060

    This proposal describes a Portable Virtual Collaborative Maintenance System (PVCMS) that can support maintenance personnel in austere locations. Efficient communications between personnel is especially important when maintaining the complex machinery currently used by the military. In addition to technical documents and schematics, technicians frequently need support from other maintainers that ha ...

  6. Acoustic direction finding using biologically inspired techniques

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: A04T013

    The ability to determine the direction and characteristics of sounds they hear is one many birds and mammals are endowed with. This biological ability evolved over millions of years, and if one can understand the mechanisms, one expects, we can copy and mimic the capability to some extent in practical applications. Audio cues are also essential for situation awareness for soldiers. Ability t ...
