  1. Dynamic Multicomponent Optical Analyzer for Chemical Weapon (CW) Exposure Studies

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: CBD08104

    Spectral Sciences Inc. proposes to develop a prototype sensor for real-time trace-level analysis of complex multicomponent gas mixtures, specifically those containing Chemical Weapon (CW) agents and interferents. The instrument is based on high power quantum cascade lasers and photocoustic spectroscopy detection. Advanced detection algorithms take advantage of wide spectral coverage to provide hi ...

  2. Counterinsurgency Campaign Design Tool (COIN-CDT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A08093

    To plan and conduct an effective counterinsurgency campaign, commanders first need to understand what they are facing. Because insurgencies vary widely, change rapidly, do not conform to existing doctrine, and are highly complex, figuring out the situation can be the most difficult part of planning and executing an effective campaign. To address this difficulty, doctrine prescribes a process known ...

  3. Micro Games for Proactive Preventive Medicine

    SBC: ONTAR CORP.            Topic: OSD08H04

    The OSD is aware that our nation’s younger generations are gamers and have the potential to learn through gaming. OSD has expressed interest in using short duration video games, called micro games, to promote learning in the domain of preventative medicine. Our primary focus during Phase I of this SBIR will be to develop meaningful micro games built on the principles of learning which can be h ...

  4. A Fast Acting Solid-State Circuit Breaker for Electrical Power Systems

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: OSD08EP6

    Increased demands for electric vehicle performance have resulted in large power requirements and the potential for extremely large fault currents. This is true not only for over-the-road electric and hybrid vehicles, but also for ships and aircraft, which are increasingly moving toward all-electric propulsion. Without fast and reliable means to limit fault currents and isolate faulted sections, ...

  7. Biomimetic Control of Flying Robots

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08056

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAVs) will likely become the ISR platform of choice for urban operations because they have the advantages of being able to effectively maneuver in difficult terrain, look under vertical obscuration, etc. – all with minimal risk to human safety. While MAVs have many advantages, they do have a significant drawback: the likely loss of the vehicle due to a collision with an obst ...

  8. CFD Toolkit for Modeling Parachutists in Freefall

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A07182

    A recent increase in the occurrence of pilot parachute deployment hesitation events during training has focused attention on the flow field about parachutists in freefall. An improved understanding of this flow will contribute to better equipment and improved safety. Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) analysis is a powerful technique for exploring such flows. Once validated against experimental d ...

  9. MEMS Enhanced Laser Spectrometer for Ultra-sensitive Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: A07135

    The Joint Services is seeking a miniaturized, low cost sensor for detection and identification of CWAs and TICs. To meet this requirement Block MEMS has very successfully completed a Phase I effort to develop a widely tunable MEMS enhanced Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) spectrometer called LaserChemTM. LaserChemTM will have sensitivity in the parts per trillion, be under 1800 cm3 in size, have very l ...
