  1. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 91

    During the Phase I program, Aurora conducted a comprehensive survey of potential platforms that included government owned and furnished UAVs and manned aircraft as well as Aurora’s Centaur Optionally Piloted Aircraft (OPA). The survey concluded, in part, that UAVs offer a significant improvement in data collection capability when compared to manned aircraft that are currently fielded by NOAA. ...

  2. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  3. Low Profile Closed Coolant System for High Speed Combatant Craft

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SOCOM14005

    High speed combatant craft utilized by SOCOM, such as the Riverine (SOC-R), use pumped raw water to provide engine cooling for the twin marine diesel engines. While raw water provides an essentially limitless heat sink, it often contains debris which can clog engine strainers, causing the engines to overheat. Thus, engine performance, as well as maintenance, is negatively affected by the use of th ...

  4. Inconspicuous Up-Armoring of Vehicles Using Segmented Ceramic and Metallic Elements

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM14003

    Triton Systems Inc.(Triton), together with our partner Technical Products Inc. (TPI) will conduct a feasibility study to evaluate options for armoring non standard commercial vehicles (NSCV) in an unobtrusive fashion using austere mechanical facilities corresponding to expedient basing in the area of operations. Triton has wide experience in metallic, ceramic and composite armoring solutions and ...

  5. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for 13CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 83

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions to the atmosphere are primary drivers of global climate change and hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A general technique to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG's. These measurements must be performed with extremely high precision. The gold standard technique, i ...

  6. Multipurpose Atmospheric/Underwater Expendable Dropsonde

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: 84

    There are currently no inexpensive observing systems that detect temperature, salinity and currents under the ocean's surface - all important factors in predicting the intensity of hurricanes. Boston Engineering proposes to develop the Multi-Purpose Above Surface/Below Surface Expendable Dropsondes (MASED). Our design builds on the highly successful air dropsondes already in use, combined with a ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  9. Remote Electronic Medical Devices using the Integrated Clinical Environment (REMDICE)

    SBC: DocBox Inc            Topic: SOCOM13003

    Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of the ...

  10. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM13002

    In this proposal we describe our approach and anticipated results concerning the use of a novel and innovative method for providing Over-The-Horizon (OTH) L-band links between a submerged tracking device and an overhead satellite without the requirement for an on or above surface antenna. The encapsulation of an antenna in a dielectrically compensating tethered cocoon that includes a sensor and m ...
