  1. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 thro ...

  6. CFD Toolkit for Modeling Parachutists in Freefall

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A07182

    A recent increase in the occurrence of pilot parachute deployment hesitation events during training has focused attention on the flow field about parachutists in freefall. An improved understanding of this flow will contribute to better equipment and improved safety. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is a powerful technique for exploring such flows. Once validated against experimental d ...

  7. Compact, Lightweight Water Filtration for the Soldier

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A03240

    Provision of clean drinking water poses a significant challenge to Army units in the field. Due to the quantity of water required and its substantial weight, soldiers can only carry a limited supply, and sustainment of soldiers through centralized resupply poses major logistical hurdles in many situations. Existing portable water filters to not meet the need to treat locally available water supp ...

  8. Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware System

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: CBD04110

    Effective collective protection fabrics must have a reliable closure system. During our Phase I Work Plan, Sigma-K began developing a Hermetic Textile Closure Hardware (HATCH) system. The HATCH combines both a magnetic and geometric self locking mechanism that will provide a hermetic seal when closed. Our current Phase I successes include developing self closing samples that can provide a hermetic ...

  9. Lightweight, Efficient Blower for Personal Air Ventilation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD07115

    A personal air ventilation system (PAVS) can dramatically improve the environment inside chemical/biological protective clothing, protecting the health and safety of soldiers and enabling peak physical/mental performance for long periods. However, existing air blowers that can produce the flow rate and pressure drop needed for a PAVS are too heavy, inefficient, and noisy for a man-portable system ...

  10. MEMS-Based Optical Beam Steering System for Multi-Color 2D Spot Arrays

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A06T010

    A MEMS based multicolor beam steering system for generating 2D spot arrays has been demonstrated. For effective quantum computation applications, the optical system requires further optimization and refinement. In phase II, parameters such as beam scanning frame rates, insertion loss, system scalability and methods to improve the stability and ruggedness of the optical system will be enhanced towa ...
