  1. (A-TEAMM) Advanced Team Effectiveness through Automated Model-Based Mitigation

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A11041

    Groups in network-centric environments are faced with many challenges including distributed collaboration, decen-tralized decision-making, and dynamic changes in team membership. The team literature provides evidence that these challenges impede the development of optimal team states (composed of trust, cohesion, shared mental mod-els, etc.), ultimately influencing a team"s ability to share missio ...

  2. 10 kW Polarization Maintaining Fiber Laser Power Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: MDA10008

    nLIGHT proposes the development of a 10 kW power amplifier with a predicted power conversion efficiency of approximately 45%. The 10 kW power amplifier will be based on nLIGHT's high power, high efficiency, narrow-linewidth fiber coupled lasers diode modules. We will utilize custom fused fiber combiners to combine the pump modules in an efficient manner, enabling the pumping of next-generatio ...

  3. A Compact Solid State Infrared Flare

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A09004

    In this Phase II SBIR proposal Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) describes the development a solid-state emitter package to replace the propellant-based candle of the M278 infrared flare. Propellant combustion in the current candle technology is unsteady, resulting in variations in the illumination intensity and also produces a visible signature that limits it usefulness in covert activities. The propo ...

  4. A Geolocation System With Accuracy Self-Awareness (ASA) to Enable Reduced Size/Cost Antenna Arrays

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N11AT012

    The predominant method used in electronic support measure (ESM) systems to detect and geolocate noncooperative RF signals employs arrays of antennas to estimate signal angle of arrival (AOA). There are several issues that preclude wide installation of these, including very high cost, challenging installation requirements, size and weight, operation that requires highly trained specialists, and pro ...

  5. A High-strength Dexterous Bimanual Mobile Manipulator (HD-Man) System for EOD Robotic Operations

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: A10052

    Hstar proposes an advanced high-strength dexterous bi-manual mobile manipulator (HD-Man) system for EOD robotic platforms to investigate and interrogate Unexploded Ordnances (UXOs) and Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). The proposed HD-Man will be designed and developed by integrating lightweight high power density actuators, series elastic actuator for force sensing and compliant manipulator, a ...

  6. A MEMS-based ultra-stable, sensitive accelerometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N102192

    Agiltron proposes to develop a new type of accelerometer with no moving parts to replace current gravity correction mechanizations in nuclear SSBN submarine weapon systems. We will design the accelerometer to achieve bias stability less than 0.01micro-g, scale factor stability less than 1ppb, and noise floor less than 10-9 g/sqrt(hz). Using MEMS technology, the device will be both compact and low ...

  8. A Novel Method for Fast Rendering of Missile Plume Imagery

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: MDA05044

    Since infrared radiation from missile exhaust plumes is a key observable for many satellite sensors and interceptor seekers, considerable effort has been expended in developing and validating high-fidelity plume signature codes. However, their utility for systems studies of missile fly-outs is limited by extremely long run times for each calculation. Spectral Sciences developed a data-driven algo ...

  9. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  10. A Robotic Avatar Interactive Console Enhancing AVESS User Interface Capacity

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: OSD11H04

    The current AVESS has targeted to creating fundamental virtual world using tools of Second Life and its user interface is limited to 2D input devices. A wide spectrum of interaction will be needed to enhance this AVESS system to further improve the user"s virtual presence with non-verbal interface such as haptic, visual, kinematic and emotional interaction. Hstar proposes a robotic avatar interac ...
