  1. Solid State Transcutaneous Carbon Dioxide Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A09159

    The United States Army (The Army) has identified the need for a device that can accurately and non-invasively measure the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2) that is suitable for use in combat casualties who have hypovolemic shock, acute lung injury, massive resuscitation, and other factors that alter the exhaled or end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2)-PCO2 relationship. In this Phase II program, Giner, In ...

  2. Enhanced IED Detection Using Ontological Knowledgebase with Fuzzy Reasoning

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: A09078

    In Phase I, we have developed a suite of algorithms with capabilities including anomaly detection, false alarm mitigator, intelligent target grouping for minefield display to the human operator, and minefield detection. An ontological knowledgebase has also be developed, which provides a unified environment for the operation and coordination of individual algorithm modules. Test results using actu ...

  3. Portable Stand-off Detection of IEDs Based on Fluorescence Sensory Organics and Optical Microcavities

    SBC: EMITECH, INC.            Topic: A09070

    We propose to develop a novel, highly efficient, soldier-borne system for real-time detection and neutralization of IED hazards at a stand-off distance of 150 meters and more. The proposed approach is a significant advance in stand-off explosive detector technologies, combining image processing with chemical detection signature and ballistic delivery of the sensory material to inspected objects. T ...

  4. Smart Sensors for Real-Time Bridge Monitoring

    SBC: ERALLO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A09173

    During Phase I, the hypothesis was verified (through lab test conducted at CFC-WVU) that structural faults (cracks) and their locations on bridges can be identified using strain gauges and a strain energy technique. This non-destructive, non-baseline evaluation method uses a bridge damage indicator model and a strain energy density indicator processed through a fuzzy expert system. Inputs for the ...

  5. Antimicrobial Coatings for Medical Shelters(1001-588)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09168

    U.S. Army"s Deployable Medical System (DEPMEDS) consists of rigid aluminum ISO-standard shelters which house laboratory, radiology, pharmacy, sterilization departments, and operating rooms and soft wall TEMPER units (Tent, Expandable, Modular, Personnel) which house patient wards and auxiliary units. Although operating rooms are routinely cleaned, in the event of a sudden influx of casualties it m ...

  6. Lithium Ion Battery Separator with High Temperature Stability

    SBC: OPTODOT CORPORATION            Topic: A11065

    A separator involving composite materials is provided that meets the lithium ion battery requirements for separators with high temperature stability at 220C and above and with mechanical strength and flexibility. The heat stable properties are obtained from using aluminum oxide particles at over 75% by weight that prevent any shrinkage of the composite separator. The mechanical strength without ...

  7. Mobile Bioelectric Filtration System (MBFS): Accelerated Anaerobic Digestion via Bio-Electrochemical Reactions

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: A11051

    Current United States military contingency operations require more sustainable Forward Operating Bases (FOBs). Major problems for FOBs include the supply of fuel and water and the removal and treatment of wastewater. Microbial Fuel Cells and Bio-electrochemical systems utilize newly discovered electrically active microbes to generate direct electric current and other value-added products while tre ...

  8. Quantitative Analysis of ALON and Spinel Dome Blanks

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A11078

    Multimode seekers are receiving significant attention as a way to provide more capability in the same package. In some cases, both optical and millimeter wave seekers are being combined in a way that requires a common aperture. The requirements for such a system place a tremendous burden on the design and production of the dome. The optical requirements on such domes drive the associated tolerance ...

  9. Measuring Fuel Quantity in Collapsible Fabric Storage Tanks

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A11067

    Leveraging on Agiltron"s extensive experience in fiber sensor development, we propose to develop a customized sensing system with the ability to measure fuel quantity in a collapsible tank. Based primarily on mature technologies and commercially available components, the proposed sensor system is simple in construction and ready to be implemented. In Phase I, a small scale sensor will be built for ...
