  2. Terrain Impact Decision Extensions (TIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A13019

    The US Army faces a significant burden in planning sustainment operations. Currently, logistics planners must manually evaluate potential emplacement sites to determine their terrain suitability. Sites subject to rainfall-runoff responses such as ponding are ill-suited for emplacements, but evaluating the likelihood of such responses requires significant time and expertise. To reduce the time and ...

  3. Nano-Inspired Broadband Photovoltaics Sheets

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A13020

    This proposed Phase I SBIR program with the US Army will focus on demonstrating ultra-low dark current in flexible, high-efficiency photovoltaic cells with nano-enhanced absorbers. By extending infrared absorption, power conversion efficiencies in single-junction, nano-enhanced solar cells can potentially meet or even exceed the Shockley-Queisser limit. Novel device designs utilizing advanced ba ...

  5. Advanced Robot Training Interface

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: OSD13HS1

    Energid Technologies proposes a software architecture and supporting implementation focused on training robots. Currently, robot training for complex tasks often involves writing software, which is impractical in the field. To address this, Energid will leverage its commercial Actin robot control and simulation software to create a new open interface that will allow researchers and developers to s ...

  6. Advanced laser protection devices based on thermally fixed hidden gratings and reversed-mode PSCT light switches


    This proposal is to develop a non focal plane laser protection device for the Army and other DoD agencies. The device will be composed of single-crystal plates with hidden reflective/diffraction gratings, which can be revealed with exposure to strong pulsed or continuous laser, and a reversed-mode polymer-stabilized-cholesteric-texture (PSCT) light switch. This proposed device can change from a hi ...

  8. High Energy Density Thermal Battery for Military Applications

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A14009

    With long shelf life and high reliability, thermal batteries are employed in virtually every strategic defense and tactical weapon system such as projectiles, rockets, bombs, mines, missiles, decoys, torpedoes and similar applications. Due to limited space allowance for the payload, next generation thermal batteries will be required to deliver higher power and energy in packages smaller and ligh ...

  9. High Speed Characterization of Arena Test Fragments Embedded in Capture Media via 3-D X-ray

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: A14010

    Quantification of fragments from arena testing is expensive and labor-intensive. Currently, fragments are captured in 48-sheet bundles of -inch thick x 4x8 Celotex. Technicians spend thousands of hours recovering fragments from all tested sheets, measuring their position in three dimensions, then cleaning and weighing them. Evaluation of a single bundle can take 30 hours, at $100/hour. ZKxKZ a ...
