  1. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor for Battlefield Combustibles

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: AF04207

    The objective of this program is to develop a wide field of view spectral imaging sensor to support theater surveillance and intelligence. The AHS operates in the Mid Wave Infrared (MWIR) band and provides day/night spectral target cueing, geolocation and identification of hot battlefield threats. Currently deployed EO sensors can measure broadband MWIR signals, but are incapable of providing adva ...

  2. A Decomposition Based Approach to Optimal Layout of Complex Systems such as UAV’s and Satellites

    SBC: Desantage Corporation            Topic: AF04T019

    The design of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV’s) is a complex process of creating a reliable system of reasonable cost that can survive in hostile environments. Although UAV’s have unique aspects to them, similar goals can be found in almost any complex, competitive product. One aspect of the design of these systems that tends to be both difficult and poorly supported with available computer ...

  3. A DNA Taggant Watermarking System

    SBC: EAGLE EYE, INC.            Topic: AF04124

    Taggants are small objects used to label things or people that need to be traced. Synthetic DNA Taggants are ideal for this, since very small amounts can be detected if the sequence is known, and can be disguised by natural DNA in the environment. Known protocols for DNA amplification (e.g. PCR) allow for very sensitive DNA detection, but suffer from disadvantages: the apparatus is not very portab ...

  4. Advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS) for Future Multiple Entry Vehicles

    SBC: k Technology Corporation            Topic: AF04034

    The development of durable thermal protectin systems is one of the critical technologies to enhance performance and reduce operational costs of the next generation reentry space vehicles. k Technology Corporation (kTC) proposes development of an integrated thermal and structural thermal protection system (TPS) with low maintenance. The concept is to develop a leading edge TPS that is a load-carr ...

  5. Analysis Tools for Detection and Diagnosis of Biological Threats

    SBC: ALPHA-GAMMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: CBD04113

    DNA microarray technology, in combination with statistical and predictive modeling tools, could be used to evaluate thousands of genes against distinct gene expression patterns induced by chemical/biological agents to provide early identification and speed therapeutic intervention. The overall objective of this Phase II effort is to leverage existing public domain resources and commercial tools t ...

  6. BI-METALLIC SELF-FORGING FRAGMENT (SFF) WARHEAD FOR ENHANCED BEHIND-ARMOR EFFECTS

    SBC: Dyna East Corp.            Topic: N/A

    THE LETHALITY OF ANY DIRECTED-ENERGY WARHEAD IS MEASURED BY ITS ABILITY TO CAUSE IRREPARABLE DAMAGE TO THE VULNERABLE COMPONENTS THAT EXIST BEHIND THE PROTECTIVE ARMOR. THIS DAMAGE IS INCURRED BY THE IMPACT OF THESE COMPONENTS BY EITHER THE PENETRATOR MATERIAL ITSELF OR BY TARGET SPALL MATERIAL GENERATED BY THE INTERACTION OF THE PENETRATOR AND PROTECTIVE ARMOR. SIGNIFICANT IMPROVEMENT IN LETHALIT ...

  7. Calculation and Testing of Alternating Current (AC) Losses in Coated Conductors and the Development of Practical Conductors and Coils for Operational

    SBC: Long Electromagnetics, Inc.            Topic: AF03T023

    The use of coated HT superconductors in the ac windings of electrical machines offers the possibility of much lighter electrical devices. To use these conductors at proposed high frequencies, present “as-manufactured” conductor geometries must be modified to reduce their ac loss by using fine filaments and other topologies). Equally important are more global winding losses requiring suitable ...

  8. COMPACT, LIGHTWEIGHT, VIS-NIR-SWIR AND LWIR HYPERSPECTRAL SENSORS

    SBC: Wavefront Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04228

    The primary goal of this Phase II effort is to design, fabricate, and evaluate a new family of ultra-compact, lightweight, VIS-NIR-SWIR hyperspectral imaging sensors enabled by an innovative design form and dispersing element technology that are suitable for use on uninhabited aerial vehicles (UAVs). This new low cost sensor technology will provide for nearly an order of mangitude reduction in sy ...

  10. 3 Dimensional Nano-Scale Reinforcement Architecture for Advanced Composite Structures

    SBC: 3TEX, Inc.            Topic: AF04T020

    Three-dimensional woven and braided fiber architectures provide important advantages to composites, including suppression of delamination, high damage tolerance, improved through-the-thickness properties, simplicity and cost-effectiveness of manufacturing complex composite structural components. However, in order to diversify applications and reach high volumes of utilization of these materials in ...
