  1. Models to Address Diplomatic, Information, Military, Economic (DIME) Factors for the Propagation/Evolution of Ideas Through Defined Populations

    SBC: Veloxiti, Inc.            Topic: A06094

    We propose to evaluate and recommend a set of candidate models of the flow and evolution of population beliefs and intentions as the starting point for developing a deployable DIME Effects Model (DEM) for tactical commanders. DIME (Diplomatic, Information, Military and Economic) seeks to avoid counter-productive and conflicting activities during tactical operations by considering these factors in ...

  2. A Novel Integrated Model of Missile and Munition Thermal Batteries

    SBC: Erigo Technologies LLC            Topic: A06021

    Thermal batteries are the power source of choice for many weapon systems. While thermal batteries offer designers several key advantages, the design and integration of this technology into new applications suffers from two significant impediments. The first is the lack of suitable design tools, and the second is the time-consuming and expensive effort necessary to qualify a new battery design thr ...

  3. A Hierarchical Fault Tolerant Control System for UGVs Experiencing Mobility Failures

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: A06203

    Global Technology Connection, Inc. in collaboration with University of Michigan-Dearborn (Vetronics Institute) and our industrial partner Lockheed Martin MFC proposes to develop a hierarchical fault tolerant three tier architecture for UGVs. Mobility parameters are continually updated at different levels including mobility goals, UGV trajectories, and UGV system model. At the top level of the a ...

  4. Remote Autonomous Robot Mounted Laser Night Vision Surveillance System

    SBC: OASYS TECHNOLOGY, LLC.            Topic: A06238

    This proposal outlines a development path which leverages a legacy robot sensor system and evolves it into a completely self-contained sensor surveillance system with laser illumination function designed specifically to covertly penetrate architectural glass and vehicular windows. This system will operate as a standalone entity, requiring only power and a simple mounting surface from its host pla ...

  5. A High-Temperature Battlefield Fuel Vaporization Membrane

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06173

    The Army seeks to standardize all equipment on its battlefield logistics fuel, JP-8. JP-8 is difficult to use for small-scale, low-power applications, however, since its low vapor pressure and complex composition inhibit complete vaporization. Existing methods for vaporizing logistics fuels require electric power, moving parts, or high temperatures. To address this need, Creare proposes to deve ...

  6. Type II Focal Plane Arrays on Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS) Material

    SBC: ADVANCED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: A06122

    We propose to develop “Type II Focal Plane Arrays on Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS) Material The Innovative Features of the project are: • Detector Arrays on Type II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Material. High Performance Detector Arrays are designed on SLS material. The main advantages of SLS detectors are 1) higher performance and longer minority carrier life time 2) higher operat ...

  7. 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

    Low-light-level photodetector arrays are proposed for detecting the weak optical emission spectra from the trace atoms in the laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS). The proposed semiconductor image intensifier and low-light-level camera utilize the miniaturized and monolithically integrated version of a proven solid-state detector technology, and is expected to be able to detect femto-watts ...

  8. Enhanced DCE-MRI Imaging of Ovarian Cancer

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A06164

    The recent introduction of dynamic contrast-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging (DCE-MRI) permits noninvasive imaging of vascular function and characterization of angiogenesis. This emerging capability is critically important in staging disease and screening for cancer. The primary goal of this project is development of fundamental improvements in DCE-MRI imaging methods that provide increased s ...

  9. Precision Pulse Positioning System Applied to Low-Cost Position and Orientation


    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) proposes to enhance the Precision Pulse Positioning System (3PS) that was developed on previous SBIR contracts to produce a solution for position and orientation of battlefield platforms. The Precision Pulse Positioning System (3PS) technology will provide precise near-instantaneous position estimates of a platform and the PRA Polarimeter technology wi ...

  10. Rapid Detection of Acetylcholinesterase-Inhibiting Pesticides in Water Using a Handheld Assay and Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06159

    We propose that a comparative colorimetric assay be developed that will use a ticket of the same dimensions as the current ANP immunoassay tickets. This will allow the AChE test to be conducted using a similar workflow as the lateral flow immunoassay-based HHAs and be similarly read on the ANP reader to yield an unambiguous result independent of user judgment.
