  1. Adaptive Hyperspectral Sensor for Battlefield Combustibles


    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 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 ...

  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 New Hybrid Method for High-Order EM-PIC Simulations


    Wave Computation Technologies, Inc. (WCT) proposes to develop a new commercial electromagnetic particle-in-cell (EM-PIC) software package based on a 3-D hybrid technique that combines two efficient algorithms, (a) the enlarged cell technique (ECT) and (b) the spectral-element time-domain (SETD) method, as a high-order solver for EM-PIC simulations. This hybrid technique overcomes the well-known l ...

  7. Demonstration of Inter-Turbine Burners for Part-Power Improvements

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD07ES9

    Conventional gas turbine engines are often optimized for a specific narrow range of the flight envelope and perform much less efficiently at off-design conditions. Introduction of an inter turbine burner (ITB) into a gas turbine design can add a level of adjustability to the engine performance that in turn provides improved operating efficiency over a wider range of the operating envelope. Durin ...

  8. Development of a Near-field Acoustical Holography System for Aircraft Jet Source Noise Measurements

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF071023

    Military jet aircraft are exposing both ground maintenance personnel and the community to high levels of noise. The DoD is funding research to develop advanced modeling tools for community noise exposure and for noise reduction techniques. The lack of understanding of the actual jet noise source limits the progress of these new tools. For these tools to achieve their full potential, innovative ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    In an information warfare scenario, the enemy will deploy an attack that has never been seen before. This attack will completely debilitate both defensive and offensive software capabilities. We have designed and developed a system that will defend against such attacks. The project's major innovation has been a comprehensive approach for tolerating security violations in mission/safety critical ...
