  1. Wideband Filter Networks for Joint Tactical Radio System (JTRS) Size, Weight, and Power (SWAP) Reduction

    SBC: Active Spectrum, Inc.            Topic: A07086

    We propose a novel, high performance tunable narrowband bandpass preselect filter that is capable of continuously tuning from 400MHz - 3GHz. The proposed filter offers an order of magnitude reduction in SWAP-C, small size (1/2" x 1/2" x 1/4"), low cost and minimal power consumption. The proposed design uses conventional fabrication processes and inexpensive off-the-shelf commercially available com ...

  3. WASTE HEAT EXCHANGER FOR DIESEL EXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    THE WASTE HEAT EXCHANGER IS OFTEN THE LARGEST SINGLE COMPONENT IN DIESEL-EXHAUST POWERED AIR CONDITIONING SYSTEMS, AND ON ACCOUNT OF ITS HIGH MATERIAL CONTENT, IS OFTEN THE HEAVIEST AND MOST COSTLY AS WELL. THE NEED EXISTS FOR A HEAT EXCHANGER DESIGN AND FABRICATION TECHNIQUE WHICH IS COMPACT AND LIGHTWEIGHT, RESISTS FOULING FROM EXHAUST GASES, IS EASILY CLEANED, USES INEXPENSIVE MATERIALS, AND IS ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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, ...

  6. Automatically Guiding Interviews By Commonsense Abductive Principles

    SBC: AETION TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A07116

    Significant challenges exist related to smartly interviewing multiple people to assess eyewitness accounts and judge how truthful a source is. Aetion proposes applying a powerful form of inference called abduction to help intelligently interview multiple people and compare their corresponding answers to judge the reliability of a source. Abductive inference, or "inference to best explanation," has ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. Malaria Diagnostic Methods to Replace Microscopy in Clinical Trials

    SBC: AKRON RUBBER DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY,INCORPORATED            Topic: A08118

    Developing a robust and accurate test for the detection of malaria continues to be an elusive challenge.1,2 The objective of this proposal is to develop an innovative approach to the diagnosis of malaria that is very specific and sensitive for detecting the presence of malaria parasites in red blood cells (RBC). This approach could potentially be more effective than the current microscopic and r ...
