  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 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 ...

  3. Advanced Epoxy System for Large Scale Composite Ship Component Manufacturing Using the VARTM Process.

    SBC: TRIANGLE POLYMER TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06T040

    A major limitation of current high performance composites made from vinyl ester resins is their performance with carbon fiber reinforcements. Carbon fiber composites can possess much higher specific stiffness and strength than glass fiber composites, but the laminated composite properties depend on a good interface between the matrix resin and the fiber. Since vinyl ester resins typically do not e ...

  4. Advanced Helmet for Maintainer Head and Hearing Protection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N04255

    Improved head and hearing protection is required for aircraft maintainers working on a carrier flight deck during launch and recovery operations. The current head protection is inadequate in many aspects including impact protection, hearing protection, cleaning, comfort, and compatibility with night vision goggles (NVGs) and with chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) equipment. Creare pro ...

  5. Advanced Helmet for Maintainer Head and Hearing Protection

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N04255

    Improved head and hearing protection is required for aircraft maintainers working on a carrier flight deck during launch and recovery operations. Legacy Flight Deck Cranials are inadequate in many aspects including hearing protection, impact protection, cleaning, comfort, and compatibility with night vision devices (NVDs) and with chemical, biological, and radiological (CBR) equipment. In this p ...

  6. Advanced In-Flight Rebreather

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: AF071034

    Flight crews require supplemental oxygen for emergency high-cabin-altitude operations. Some personnel require a walk-around oxygen supply to move freely throughout the cabin until the altitude is reduced to a safe level. Current low-pressure bottles cannot supply oxygen for an adequate duration in an acceptable cylinder size, and multiple cylinder fills are usually required to meet common missio ...

  7. A High Speed Towed Magnetic Array for In-Road Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices Employing Optimized Magnetic Map Differencing

    SBC: GEOPHEX, LTD.            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this project is to design, build, and test an active electromagnetic induction (EMI) sensor array for detecting and characterizing IEDs. At low frequencies (below a few kHz), an EMI sensor is a magnetometer that primarily responds to susceptibility targets (i.e., ferrous objects). The main difference is that, while a magnetometer uses the earth's field as the illuminating source, an EM ...

  9. 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 are not sufficiently controllable to support highly efficient catalytic combustion processes, or impose un ...

  10. AlGaN/GaN HFETs on Silicon for BMDS X-Band Radars

    SBC: Nitronex Corporation            Topic: MDA06T012

    AlGaN/GaN FETs on Si will be developed and optimized for operation at high frequency (X-band and above). The high frequency performance will be improved by modifications to the existing commercialized sub-4GHz GaN FET platform technology that’s currently available at Nitronex. The modifications will be made in the epitaxial structure, device layout and gate length for maximum X-band radar perf ...
