  1. Acoustic Detection and Verification of Intrusions against Military Facilities

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: A08113

    Large military installations and training complexes are difficult to secure because they consist of largely remote and/or unoccupied areas that are open to trespassers and contain numerous sites of localized high-value assets that are vulnerable to vandalism. An acoustic surveillance system that can recognize human activity and provide much needed intelligence information to security officers coul ...

  2. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Devising a means to reduce the fluence at the image sensor by a factor of 100 would eliminate the threat from all but the largest, cumbersome sources. We propose that the needed fluence reduction can be achieved by operating the existing imager at a strongly defocused setting, and applying hardware-accelerated existing state-of-the-art image deblurring algorithms to its data stream. Several exist ...

  3. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The objective of this work is to develop a compact, robust process that reduces the sulfur content of jet fuel to less than 10 ppm prior to its reformation and use in a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) fuel cell. The target power range of the SOFC is 2 kW. In addition to military applications, the desulfurization technology will be compatible for SOFCs used for emergency or backup power generation, ...

  5. Multi-differential Optical Trigger Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A08078

    Agiltron proposes a new multi-differential laser radar (MDLIDAR) optical trigger detection system. The design innovatively implements multiple stages of both optical hardware and image processing firmware filtering to reject background noise and clutter. The incorporated technologies include differentiations in polarization, spectra, time-domain, and space to achieve unsurpassed high detection se ...

  6. Waveband-Switchable Low Cost IR Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A04117

    Agiltron has developed and demonstrated fabrication capability for a new category of photomechanical IR imagers that convert infrared radiation into visible images using a conventional visible-light CMOS camera. This breakthrough photo-mechanical thermal image technology potentially offers next generation thermal camera performance attributes of: Large Pixel Array High Resolution Sensor; Low Cost ...

  7. Compact Unit for Eye-Safe Standoff Explosive Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08055

    The goal of this work is to develop a novel Raman scattering spectrometer for advance standoff detection of IEDs and suicide bomber threats. When using the proposed instrument, we will obtain rapid, chemical-specific analysis at standoff distances of up to 30 m. This instrument will have significantly increased detection sensitivity, measurement accuracy and analysis rates compared to more conve ...

  8. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  9. Circulating Prostate Cancer Progenitor Cell Assay Development

    SBC: ANDROBIOSYS, INC.            Topic: A08T041

    This Phase I contract proposal will evaluate and identify markers associated with prostate cancer progenitor stem cells, that differentiate these cells from adult tissue stem cells and benign prostate progenitor cells. The eventual goal of this work would be to develop a high throughput blood-based assay highly specific for circulating prostate cancer progenitor cells. A cell shed from a tumor mu ...

  10. Improved Field of Regard for Strap Down Semi Active Laser Seekers

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC            Topic: A08041

    To meet the need of the Army in a semi-active laser seeker with increased field of regard for and narrow instantaneous field of view, Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes development of the Wide-Angle Optical System for Strap-down Seeker (WAOS3 ). Semi-active strap-down seekers in tactical weapons offer improved reliability, reduced weight, and lower cost. However, combining wide field of ...
