  3. Portable and Environmentally Friendly Trap for Haematophagous Arthropods

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Haematophagous arthropods including ticks and mosquitoes spread many deadly diseases and pose serious threats to people throughout the world. Current measures only mediate the problem, and no solution exists to stop the spread of disease by these vectors.Trapping these arthropods can be a significant component in controlling and monitoring their populations, yet current trapping devices are eithe ...

  4. Cooperative Planning and Control of Future Combat Systems Resupply Operations: A Component-Based Approach

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    ALPHATECH proposes a component-based software architecture and algorithms approach for multi-vehicle intelligent planning and control to support Future Combat Systems (FCS) resupply operations. The proposed system will enable a small number of humanoperators to rapidly develop, execute, and continuously update resupply plans that coordinate the activities of multiple materials-handling equipment ( ...

  5. Training Rapid Decision-Making Processes Required by the Dismounted Objective Force Leader

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Objective Force Warriors will use new technologies that provide them with information in unprecedented volume. To use these assets well, leaders of small units will need strong problem-solving and decision-making skills. Current Army training may addresssome of these skills, but not all. The challenge is to discern what training is needed to prepare Objective Force leaders, to reuse relevant train ...

  6. Portraying Uncertainty in Battlefield Weather Situational Awareness

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Military planning and logistics must account for weather effects on both a strategic and tactical level. There is, however, uncertainty associated with any forecast that confounds planning and decision-making in relation to anticipated weather effects andtheir impacts on equipment and personnel. The Aptima team proposes to develop visualizations of weather uncertainty from forecast data to present ...

  7. Low Cost and High Efficiency Ceramic Laser


    New concepts in fiber optic lasers are of interest to Army to reduce the cost-per-watt and sustain longer storage life in the field. Current solid state laser materials are limited in Nd or Yb doped single crystals, both emit at near 1 mwavelength, and other material systems have not yet been fully explored. Due to the unavailability of high efficiency materials emitting at 1.5 ¿m, diode pump ...

  8. Lightweight MCMCO Composite Armor Body Panels for Commercial Vehicles

    SBC: Ceracom, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ceracom Inc. will use innovative composite manufacturing technologies to develop revolutionary armor system for use as panels for military and commercial vehicles. The armor system is lightweight, hard, stiff and tough so that it can withstand blastfragments, pressure waves from blast mines, and ballistic rounds. It also can withstand the rough handling and conditions found in an operational env ...

  9. Real-time Adaptive Classification Environment using Rules (RACER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) algorithms must be able to identify the conditions under which they are operating and tune their parameters accordingly to ensure robust accuracy and low false-alarm rate. For example, the signature of a target imagedunder ideal weather conditions (overcast skies) is fundamentally different from the signature of a target imaged when raining. Therefore, a single A ...

  10. Adaptive Battlespace Analysis Toolset for Geospatial Information Management

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Satisfying the diverse geospatial information and intelligence needs of the tactical user calls for techniques that can rapidly infer user requirements and manage the information dissemination process. To address this challenge we propose the developmentof an Adaptive Battlespace Analysis Toolset for Geospatial Information Management. The toolset relies on an advanced GIS-based representation of t ...
