  1. Automated Terrain Feature Characterization for Signature Modeling

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A15006

    High-fidelity representation of terrain morphology is a critical requirement for accurate modeling and simulation of infrared background scenes. The current state of the art in terrain representation for missile seeker systems and other military applications is based on digital elevation models, which are relatively coarse in resolution and have smooth contours that do not resolve the presence of ...

  2. Printable Materials with Embedded Electronics and Radio Frequency Components

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space. In fact, to accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components. For radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems, this will requ ...

  3. Lightweight Thin-film Solar Cell with Periodic Optical Nanostructure

    SBC: Amberwave, Inc.            Topic: A17074

    AmberWave, Inc. has developed a method to laminate an ultra-thin (18 microns) monocrystalline Si layer to a conductive and fracture-resistant supporting layer such as a thin steel alloy foil. With this UTSi (Ultra-Thin Si) technology we have integrated front and rear cell processes based on the world-record PERL (Passivated Emitter Rear Locally diffused) silicon solar cell design, and have demonst ...

  4. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  5. Radar Waveform Diversity

    SBC: Spear Research, LLC            Topic: A16111

    Current radar systems are driven by sensing requirements in the field. Today, and even more so in the future, the operation of these systems will be plagued by heterogeneous threats, each seeking to counter the sensing capability with different types of countermeasures. The traditional approach to solving this problem would be to introduce multiple individual systems (sensors and effectors) into t ...

  6. SiC Based Electrical Distribution for High Voltage Vehicle Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A12118

    Power system upgrades for next generation ground combat vehicles require technology advances such as higher operating temperature, greater power density, and increased functionality.Silicon Carbide (SiC) based power electronic devices offer advantages over silicon devices, especially for high voltage buses, and Creare is currently developing a SiC based 12-channel, +/ 300 VDC High Voltage Power Co ...

  7. Multi-Fuel Burners for Soldier Power

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17028

    The Army has an ever-growing need to provide electric power to soldiers on the battlefield. Of particular need is an efficient, power dense, jet fuel-powered system for charging batteries. The Army has invested heavily in thermal-to-electric power conversion, most notably in thermoelectric generators or TEGs. Because the conversion efficiency of TEGs is relatively low, and because the hot side ...

  8. Locality Scanner for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVI) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  9. Development of an Improved General Purpose Tent Fabric

    SBC: WARWICK MILLS, INC.            Topic: A16115

    Low cost polyurethane laminate tent materials are designed to solve the cold crack issue with PVC tent fabrics. The use of novel construction of urethane/textile laminates offers a breakthrough in environmental durability over current offerings. This new laminate configuration provides for a new class of economical lightweight shelters with extended operating capability.Using a composite textile r ...

  10. Real-Time In-Situ Measurement of Void Fraction and Specific Surface in Fresh Concrete

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: 171FH2

    Water expansion during freeze-thaw cycles can cause deterioration in concrete, leading to scaling, cracking, and crumbling over a period of years. Resistance to this damage is achieved with a system of voids formed by adding surfactants to the fresh concrete to stabilize air bubbles naturally entrained during mixing. The volume fraction, size, and spacing of these voids are critical. It is importa ...
