  2. Probabilistic and Relational Inferences in Dynamic Environments (PRIDE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST081004

    Uncertainty on the modern battlefield makes mission planning and decision making extremely complex for field commanders. Mission planners can be aided by initial and ongoing situation assessment, future state estimation, assessment of the current plan"s probability of success, what-if analysis, and suggestions for decisions. At present, few automated tools exist to provide mission planners with th ...

  3. Passive Collision Detection for UAV Sense and Avoid Systems

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: ST081005

    Currently, Unmanned Aircraft Systems face limitations on their utilization in civil airspace because they do not have the capability to sense and avoid (SAA) other air traffic. Ability to detect collisions with low False Alarm and False Negative Rates are crucial for SAA. In Phase I, UtopiaCompression in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles successfully developed methods to ...

  4. Rapid, Quantitative Biological Indicator System with Bacillus thuringiensis Al Hakam Spores(1001-677)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11101

    Biological agents pose high threats, because they are invisible and odorless and a relatively small amount can infect a large population when released in a densely populated area. For the same reasons, assuring safety after cleaning decontaminated sites can be challenging. Currently available technologies require considerable labor, and results typically cannot be obtained before 24 V 48 hours up ...

  5. Spores Viability Detection System

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: CBD11101

    There is an urgent need for a rapid biological detection system that demonstrates the efficacy of decontamination products for inactivating Bacillus anthracis spores on environmental surfaces. To address the U.S. Army/CBD need for such a fieldable, rapid, NIST-certified, quantitative bio-indicator system, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Spores Viability Detection (SVD) ...

  6. Improved M8 Test Paper for Chemical Agent Detection

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: CBD11103

    Intelligent Optical Systems (IOS) proposes to develop a field-rugged, colorimetric indicating test paper that is capable of detecting multiple chemical warfare agents (CWAs), at low concentrations, in adverse environments. The proposed sensor array will detect threatening chemical agents and provide a visual readout after coming in contact with the agent, or agents. This array will overcome the st ...

  7. Ruggedized FTIR Spectrometer Based on Calomel Prisms

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: CBD11104

    Leveraging on Agiltron industry leading development of optical systems and the PI experience with FTIR spectrometer design, we propose to develop a new class of compact monolithic Fourier-transform spectrometers for the long-wave (7.5-13 m) infrared optical range. The proposed solution is based on creating a spatial interferogram with a pair of a calomel Wollaston prisms and digitizing it with an ...

  8. Solid state deep UV laser for Raman detection of CB agents

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: CBD11105

    Raman spectroscopy is a highly effective non-contact laser remote sensing method for detecting and identifying chemicals in every-day field environments. Raman spectroscopy is particularly suited for detecting trace surface contaminants that may indicate the presence of explosives, harmful chemical or biological agents. Contemporary systems, such as the vehicle mounted Joint Contaminated Surface D ...

  9. Advanced Transmitter for Chem-Bio Standoff Detection

    SBC: DBC Technology Corp.            Topic: CBD11106

    Program tasks include analysis to improve wavelength diversity, high PRF discharges and catalysis in normal and isotopic pulsed CO2 laser mixtures, and high energy extraction in a single mode resonator. Analysis will be performed for pulse energy scaleup to the 1-5 J level at high PRF in support of the cloud search, track, and map functions. The impact of improved laser operation and enhanced da ...
