  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Advanced Transparent Armor Materials and Manufacturing Methods

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SOCOM14002

    "Current glass-based transparent armor has two major deficiencies: 1) It is very heavy, and therefore can compromise performance and helicopter transportability of vehicles; and 2) It is very thick, and therefore can compromise visual signature of vehicles. Advanced technology ceramic transparent armor removes both these deficiencies and provides a twofold improvement in performance, but costs 6-1 ...

  5. Anthropometric Casualty Estimation Methodologies

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: A12096

    The design of Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) for force protection is critical for Soldier survivability and effectiveness in a range of combat operations. The Army needs: (1) new anthropometric casualty estimation tools and (2) the integration of these tools with constructive simulation, enabling the study of relationships and tradeoffs between factors such as armor, coverage, weight, volume, ...

  6. Synthesis and Characterization of Halogenated Cyclic Nitramines

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12011

    The Army recognizes a continuing need for more powerful high explosives that have improved energy density. To increase the energy of nitramine materials further, a highly promising strategy is to modify the inherent crystalline density of RDX/HMX materials by structural substitution of hydrogen atoms with halogen atoms. In the Phase I program, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) demonstrated that direct ...

  7. Advanced Electromagnetic Induction (EMI) Techniques for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection and Characterization

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A12040

    Abstract: Due to the highly variable, often clutter-ridden, and sometimes hostile environments in which Buried Explosive Hazards (BEHs) reside, the challenge of clearing areas through mounted or dismounted operations is a formidable one. The improvised nature of re-used munitions and detonating devices, as well as the variability of homemade explosives constituents requires a technology capable of ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Nanofluidic Sequencing of Polypeptides

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A13097

    Leveraging Agiltron"s development and production of portable Raman spectrometers, Agiltron will develop a new class of polypeptide sequencers. Our approach capitalizes on recent progress in Raman spectroscopy to push the sensor performance well beyond the current state-of-the-art.

  10. 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 ...
