  1. Synergistic and Smart Micro-Controls for Enhanced SCBA Equipment

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD14103

    This proposal outlines the successful demonstration of electrochemical CO2 removal that generates virtually no heat, from a humid breathing gas mixture. Mainstream evaluated micro-sensors for monitoring temperature, humidity, CO2, and O2 for breath monitoring for the self-contained breathing apparatus (SCBA). Advanced CO2 separating technology combined with micro-sensors and controls allows for op ...

  2. Flexible, Compact Acoustic Transducer Arrays

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A12086

    For military applications, acoustic arrays can provide target signatures and locations of aircrafts, vehicles, weapons and personnel. Additional benefits of arrays include immunity to jamming, low cost, low weight and low power consumption. Acoustic beamforming using conventional arrays typically require 10~100s of microphones and have an aperture size ranging from several inches to several feet ...

  3. High-Temperature Hybrid Foil Bearing for Unmanned Aerial System Gas Turbines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A12104

    Small unmanned aerial systems (UAS) are a critical element in current military operations, and their use will increase substantially in the future. The propulsion system is a key design constraint in any UAS, and current small gas turbines for these vehicles are limited by the conventional oil-lubricated rolling element bearings used to suspend their high-speed rotating assemblies. Gas-lubricated ...

  4. Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: A12038

    In the first phase of this program Plasmonics was able to make a breadboard profile sensor using COTS optics and a pyroelectric-linear-detector array that was able to detect a human by subtending greater than 16 pixels across the target at a range of up to 75 m. Based on work in Phase I, it was concluded that the design of existing COTS linear-detector arrays was insufficient to achieve a range of ...

  5. Light-weight, Low-volume, High Oxygen Storage Density Material for Self-Contained Breathing Apparatus

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: CBD12105

    This proposal outlines Mainstreams successful Phase I feasibility demonstration related to the fabrication of hierarchical hybrid nanomaterials for oxygen storage vessels. These vessels exceed the volumetric and gravimetric storage capacity of an oxygen cylinder by 245% and 170%, respectively. Included in these storage density values is a solid-state oxygen regulation system that also enables comp ...

  6. Physics-Based, High Resolution Soil Strength Prediction

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A12094

    Effective Army-scale mobility predictions in austere environments require knowledge of soil strength conditions at high spatial resolution (100 m or less). Knowledge of the battlespace is greatly hindered because available weather-scale near-surface soil moisture data, a primary indicator of soil strength, is limited by its coarse spatial resolution (125 km). Moreover, there are no adequate method ...

  7. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  8. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic air gaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare proposes to develop a hermetic garment closure system that seals macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and pro ...

  9. 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 Solid State Electric ...

  10. A Miniature Autoinjector for Multicomponent Drugs and Vaccines

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13106

    Chemical, biological, or toxin attacks in military and civilian settings are a serious and growing concern. Standard first aid for exposure to some chemical warfare agents and toxins includes the immediate administration of relevant antidotes using an autoinjector. When an attack occurs, pre-filled autoinjectors must be immediately available and thus highly portable, and they must be suitable fo ...
