  1. Development of Low Dark Current Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Devices for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T002

    Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include eva ...

  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. Handheld Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: Arkham Technology            Topic: SB102002

    In the commercial world, corporate"road-warriors"connect to their home office servers using the RFC-2401 IPSec protocol client software installed on their PCs. Many mobile handsets have these IPSec clients built-in. The Suite B mode of HAIPE v4.2 has been closely aligned with commercial IPSec. We propose, therefore, using this client-server paradigm to develop a Suite B HAIPE client that will s ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Handheld Application for Remote Geo-Tagging

    SBC: Sysense Incorporated            Topic: SB102002

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate a mobile application capable of determining the location of a remote target. When a photo is taken with a GPS-enabled camera, the GPS location of the actual camera is appended to the photo in a process known as Geo-Tagging. Remote Geo-Tagging (RGT) differs from this process in that RGT determines the coordinates of a target within the picture as o ...

  7. Low Noise, High Efficiency Hydraulics for Mobile Robots

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: SB103001

    Hydraulic actuation systems for mobile robotics are characterized by high bandwidth, high power density, robust operation, flexible power transmission but also by low efficiency, high rejected heat, and high noise levels. The undesirable characteristics of hydraulic power systems are not inherent to fluid power transmission; they are the result of the highly inefficient techniques used to control ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Robot Fabrication via Layered Manufacturing

    SBC: MAGZOR CORPORATION            Topic: SB103002

    This proposal is to grow complex alloys on flexible electronics (polymer) substrates that can be layered upon one-another to form agile and dexterous millirobots with excellent power to weight ratios. The process includes CAD modeling of the robots, folded panel extraction of the polymer, simulation and then fabrication in state of the art hitherto unavailable electroforming equipment. The end ...
