  1. Field-Expedient Combat Load Assessment Device (CLAD)

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: A05176

    Field combat load assessment for combat training and combat mission personnel load management is an identified military need. The combat load assessment device or CLAD must meet several requirements not found in off-the-shelf commercial or consumer weighing devices. Weight requirements, accuracy requirements, functional requirements, and cost requirements prohibit the use of currently OTS hardwa ...

  2. An Accurate, Efficient Atmospheric Radiative Transfer Algorithm for TAWS


    A core process for sensor performance prediction is the radiative transport algorithm used to convert the scene environmental characteristics into radiance. Numeric approximations are often used to enhance execution time at the expense of overall radiometric accuracy. However, many radiative transfer approximations have limited applicability, working only for a set of atmospheric conditions, sen ...

  3. Reducing Complex Physico-Chemical Model Systems

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A05T018

    An important and fundamental challenge in science and engineering is the need to understand the system output variables (model predictions, measured observables) and their relation to the system¡¦s input variables (model inputs, specified experimental conditions). This project proposes to address this problem through the development of a family of numerical tools for implementing High Dimension ...

  5. High Performance and Low Cost Sniper Riflescope Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05006

    Dual Source Enemy Identification and Negation Lidar (DSEINL) is a preferred method with wide field of view and high detection rate to find and identify enemy combatants and sniper rifles by receiving the co-reflected or retro-reflected light from the sighting riflescope or the enemy combatant¡¦s eyes. The sighting scope mounted on weapons, such as sniper rifles, has a reticle plate fixed on the ...

  6. Lighteight and Low Cost Infrared Optics for Manportable Fire Control and Missile System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05202

    Agiltron proposes a new class of significantly lightweight long wave infrared (LWIR) lens system for Army manportable fire control and missile systems. Our unique afocal design uses only three thin lenses with aspherical and Fresnel surfaces, holding the promise of providing unsurpassed optical zooming performance. Leveraging on our extensive expertise in chalcogenide glass lens fabrication, we pr ...

  10. Compact, Multipulse Agile Laser for Spectrochemical Applications

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A05028

    High-energy, tunable, pulsed lasers are vital components in many state-of-the-art optical systems, including Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for standoff spectrochemical detection and analysis of explosives and other chemicals. In order to enhance the signal and improve repeatability, it is necessary to perform LIBS measurements in dual-pulse mode, with two short high-energy pulses wit ...
