  1. A Low Cost Process to Produce Carbon Fluoride for Lithium Batteries

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A10068

    For soldiers communication applications that require long life, light weight and very low self-discharge, Li/(CFx)n lithium primary chemistry is considered to be a superior choice. The high cost of current carbon monofluoride materials, however, will add significantly to the total cost of the battery. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a low cost process to produce CFx materials wi ...

  2. Biologically Inspired Scene Estimation (BIS-E)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10L04

    Scene understanding is incredibly difficult, as it requires the recreation of a 3D environment from noisy 2D image data. Greedy approaches to estimating scene attributes are computationally expensive and are not sufficient for solving many real-world problems (e.g., detecting a suspect moving through a scene). Further complicating matters, is that different levels of detail/description are require ...

  3. New Electrolytes for Rechargeable Lithium-Air Battery with Increased Cycle Life for Silent Watch Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A10139

    The army requires substantial improvements in battery energy density compared to current lithium-ion and lead acid batteries. The lightweight lithium-air battery has the potential to meet these needs, provided certain material characteristics can be improved, including extended lithium rechargeability, electrolyte stability, decreased air cathode polarization and stable performance at elevated ce ...

  5. Metallic Encapsulation of Ceramic Tile Arrays

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10063

    The Army is in need of an improved armor solution for ground vehicles that possesses modularity, reduced weight, attractive cost, high ballistic resistance, durability, and tolerance to environmental affects. To meet this need, the use of large panels made by casting metal around an array of ceramic tiles is proposed. Such a product will possess high mass efficiency due to the presence of the ce ...

  6. Low Latency Self Calibrating Constrained Digital Filter

    SBC: Bedford Signals Corporation            Topic: A10067

    The Army is looking to research and develop a programmable multichannel radio frequency filter-equalizer having a programmable number of channels, each programmable with potentially unequal spacing, bandwidth, and equalization. What is needed is a digitally programmable multichannel filter-equalizer that can perform complex filtering function tailored to multiple applications. The challenging requ ...

  7. Intelligent Human Motion Classification and Quantification

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A10093

    US soldiers increasingly have the need to operate in GPS-denied environments or in environments without access to GPS, such as caves and indoor buildings. To date, inertial integration and pedometry have been used for position estimation in such environments. The inertial integration process suffers from excessive velocity drift over time and leads to errors in position estimation. Pedometry avoi ...

  8. Novel Multifunctional Lightweight Nanocomposites

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A10041

    Nanocomposites, the integration of nanomaterials into metals, polymers and ceramics, are an area of intense interest to the Army for the design of next generation lightweight structures with enhanced properties and multifunctional capabilities. Aspen Systems Inc. proposes to develop a new class of lightweight, ultrahigh strength and ductile nanograin aluminum alloy-CNT hybrid composite with radio ...

  9. Real Time Thermal Mapping Techniques for Elastomeric Track Components

    SBC: Templeman Automation, LLC            Topic: A10137

    Acquisition of real-time measurements of track component temperatures is necessary for establishing the requirements for improved parts and materials. To support this, Templeman Automation LLC. (TA) proposes its Wireless Tank Track Monitoring (WTTM) system using embedded, battery-free RFID sensor chips. WTTM uniquely combines industry-proven miniature RFID sensor chip technology from Phase I part ...

  10. Advanced Aerogel Composites for Low Signature Base Camp Shelters

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: A10109

    Base camps require reduction in heat signature to maintain low-observable capabilities. Both warfighters and sustainment forces within the base camps generate characteristic heat signatures that can reveal the location, presence of personnel and electronic equipment, and may provide some indication of activities and OPTEMPO. Aspen Aerogels, with partner Qinetiq North America, proposes to develop ...
