  1. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a prototype sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures, specifically those containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The instrument is based on high power quantum cascade lasers and photocoustic spectroscopy detection. Advanced detection algorithms take advantage of wide spectral coverage to provide hi ...

  2. Counterinsurgency Campaign Design Tool (COIN-CDT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A08093

    To plan and conduct an effective counterinsurgency campaign, commanders first need to understand what they are facing. Because insurgencies vary widely, change rapidly, do not conform to existing doctrine, and are highly complex, figuring out the situation can be the most difficult part of planning and executing an effective campaign. To address this difficulty, doctrine prescribes a process known ...

  3. Micro Games for Proactive Preventive Medicine

    SBC: ONTAR CORP.            Topic: OSD08H04

    The OSD is aware that our nation’s younger generations are gamers and have the potential to learn through gaming. OSD has expressed interest in using short duration video games, called micro games, to promote learning in the domain of preventative medicine. Our primary focus during Phase I of this SBIR will be to develop meaningful micro games built on the principles of learning which can be h ...

  5. Biomimetic Control of Flying Robots

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08056

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) will likely become the ISR platform of choice for urban operations because they have the advantages of being able to effectively maneuver in difficult terrain, look under vertical obscuration, etc. – all with minimal risk to human safety. While MAVs have many advantages, they do have a significant drawback: the likely loss of the vehicle due to a collision with an obst ...

  8. VISION: Video Identification of Structures, Intentions, Objects, and Networks

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082021

    Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are usually not sufficient to distinguish the objects from one another, and even if high-resolution data ...

  9. Command and Control Translation System in a Service Oriented Architecture (SOA) Framework

    SBC: Jaybridge Robotics            Topic: A08088

    We propose a design for adding "universal translation" capabilities to Army Battle Command System (ABCS) 6.4 in order to support use by Embedded Coalition Forces (ECFs). Our design employs Service-Oriented Architecture (SOA) principles to solve four key problems: text localization, graphics localization, free-text translation, and security. We rely primarily on COTS software solutions, adding on ...

  10. Light-Weight, Efficient and Quiet 10 hp Class Modular Heavy Fuel Engine

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082010

    The project aims to develop a strategy for a small, modular heavy fuel engine in the 10 hp class, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful engine that offers light weight, high efficiency and quiet operations. For the Phase 1, the project tasks inc ...
