  1. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a prototype sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures, specifically those containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The instrument is based on high power quantum cascade lasers and photocoustic spectroscopy detection. Advanced detection algorithms take advantage of wide spectral coverage to provide hi ...

  2. Counterinsurgency Campaign Design Tool (COIN-CDT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A08093

    To plan and conduct an effective counterinsurgency campaign, commanders first need to understand what they are facing. Because insurgencies vary widely, change rapidly, do not conform to existing doctrine, and are highly complex, figuring out the situation can be the most difficult part of planning and executing an effective campaign. To address this difficulty, doctrine prescribes a process known ...

  3. Micro Games for Proactive Preventive Medicine

    SBC: ONTAR CORP.            Topic: OSD08H04

    The OSD is aware that our nation’s younger generations are gamers and have the potential to learn through gaming. OSD has expressed interest in using short duration video games, called micro games, to promote learning in the domain of preventative medicine. Our primary focus during Phase I of this SBIR will be to develop meaningful micro games built on the principles of learning which can be h ...

  4. Sonobuoy System and Concept of Operations for Time-Reversal-Based Target Detection

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N07014

    Existing multistatic airborne ASW systems require high power sources and are unable to exploit the significant forward scattering strength of a submarine target due to the blinding presence of the direct blast. Time reversal (TR) is a recent method for focusing acoustic energy at a point using pairs of source and receive arrays. The TR focus provides a measure of propagation channel stability, al ...

  5. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of a path planning module that makes use of time-bounded lattices to avoid potential collisions in dynamic environments. The challenge of planning in a dynamic environment is two-fold. First, tracking and predicting the trajectories of dynamic obstacles (e.g., cars, humans, and aircraft) is very noisy. Second, planning with dynamic obstacles requ ...

  6. Portable Medical Recorder

    SBC: MAGIQ TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB082015

    In order to actively reduce the ambient noise and retain vocal recording clarity of medical personnel in a military operations environment, MagiQ Technologies proposes a breakthrough multi-stage noise cancellation scheme for the SB082-105 Portable Medical Recorder. The scheme combines a Quadrupole Microphone Array, a pre-processing Active Noise Cancellation Circuit and post-processing DSP algorith ...

  7. Submarine Launched Acoustic Communication Buoy using Single Crystal Sonar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N07076

    For this Phase II SBIR program, TRS Technologies and Ultra Electronics Ocean Systems (UEOS) will team to design, build and test a buoy system for acoustic communications. Segmented single crystal rings for a 3" form factor will be made to provide a wide bandwidth for operation at two distinct frequency bands. TRS and UEOS will also team with the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institute to integrate the ...

  8. Biomimetic Control of Flying Robots

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08056

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) will likely become the ISR platform of choice for urban operations because they have the advantages of being able to effectively maneuver in difficult terrain, look under vertical obscuration, etc. – all with minimal risk to human safety. While MAVs have many advantages, they do have a significant drawback: the likely loss of the vehicle due to a collision with an obst ...

  9. Missile/UAV Dispense Interference Modeling


    The innovation proposed is the development of a high-fidelity software tool to be used for the design of hypersonic UAV dispense and subsequent dispense and dispersion of small hardened projectiles (SHAPs) from the UAVs using blast-based concepts. Such dispersed kinetic energy concepts can be effective against maneuverable and depressed trajectory threats for which conventional interceptors would ...

  10. MEMS Enhanced Laser Spectrometer for Ultra-sensitive Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: A07135

    The Joint Services is seeking a miniaturized, low cost sensor for detection and identification of CWAs and TICs. To meet this requirement Block MEMS has very successfully completed a Phase I effort to develop a widely tunable MEMS enhanced Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) spectrometer called LaserChemTM. LaserChemTM will have sensitivity in the parts per trillion, be under 1800 cm3 in size, have very l ...
