  1. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  2. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: VISHWA ROBOTICS AND AUTOMATION LLC            Topic: SB103001

    Biologically-inspired motions such as flapping, perching, walking, running, swimming, grasping and manipulating, are difficult for the most advanced robots today. The primary limitation comes from actuation technology in terms of stress/strain ratio delivered to the joint by the actuator overcoming specific resistance. Electromagnetic motors have low torque at high speeds and hence cannot be used ...

  3. Robot Fabrication via Layered Manufacturing

    SBC: Cyphy Works, Inc.            Topic: SB103002

    In this phase I proposal, we seek a solution to the problem of wiring sensors and actuators on periphery of a robot"s frame(i.e. those positioned to make contact with environment). We will accomplish this using printing technologies and a new proprietary layered carbon fiber forming technology. Because we will enhance segments from CyPhy Works UAV with this technology, this project will have a ...

  4. Social PLatform for an ISR Collaboration Environment (SPLICE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    Despite advances to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, intelligence analysts in the theater cannot achieve true multi-INT exploitation and cross-cueing due to the stove-piped nature of fielded ISR systems. Current ISR systems: 1) force human-to-human interaction to be the primary method to discover relevant intelligence data, despite its inefficiency; 2) require sig ...

  5. Unified Bayesian Global ISR

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    Automated construction of a unified global ISR pictureone that optimizes theater-wide tactical priorities, while permitting ongoing operator contextual guidancepresents a daunting theoretical and practical challenge. First is the huge variety of seemingly incommensurable information sources and information types. Second, automatic global ISR algorithms must compute optimal solutions that are base ...

  6. Lithography-free Manufacturing of Polymer Photonic Devices

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB103004

    Photonic devices are used to produce, transmit, modulate, and detect light. These devices are widely used in the data storage and communications industries. Commercial photonic devices are typically made of rigid materials including inorganic oxides and semiconductors, however, these materials are costly, expensive to deposit and process, and have poor mechanical properties (e.g., brittle, delica ...

  7. Wavelength-Beam-Combined Diode Laser Pumps for High-Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: SB103005

    In this SBIR program, TeraDiode, Inc. will develop a record brightness fiber-coupled diode laser system for pumping high power fiber lasers. TeraDiode has an exclusive license on intellectual property developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory on a means of combining many diode lasers while scaling the brightness, to obtain an exceptionally bright fiber-coupled diode laser system. TeraDiode will demons ...

  8. High Speed Naval Surface Munition

    SBC: Donald L. Blount and Associates, Inc.            Topic: SB103008

    SB103-008 has the objective to develop a high speed, semi-autonomous, naval surface munition designed to travel in water at speeds in excess of 100 knots to acoustically track and engage swarms of enemy boats up to 3 miles from the munition launch point. The munition is designed to fit within the footprint of an"A-size"sonobuoy. The proposed CONOPS results in multiple operating regimes: Sub- ...

  9. High Speed Naval Surface Munition

    SBC: Vehicle Control Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB103008

    Underwater, high-speed vehicles present several design challenges. Along with the many cavity/hydrodynamic issues are included: propulsion, control, energy density, and navigation. In addition to an underwater high-speed vehicle design, this proposal describes the development of an air phase high-speed munition concept (HSM) that employs a single watery entry event. For relative shallow depth a ...

  10. Improved Collection, Specificity, and Longterm Reagent Storage for Point of Care Diagnostics

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: SB111001

    The role of point of care (POC) diagnostics in the medical field has rapidly grown in the last few decades into a multi-billion dollar industry. For many diagnostic applications, POC diagnostics technologies are rapidly displacing in-vitro laboratory based diagnostics because POC systems allow for more rapid and effective diagnosis and triage, which leads to improved patient outcomes and reduced h ...
