  1. Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) and Testing of Ceramic Armor

    SBC: EVISIVE LLC            Topic: A07186

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of the application of a patented microwave scanning device as a portable NDE methodology to perform monitoring of the health of ceramic armor from non-projectile impacts. The scanning process utilizes microwaves as an interrogating beam to penetrate a dielectric material. The microwaves combine and form an interference pattern that ...

  3. Mobility to 802.16j- Mobile Multi-hop Relay Base Stations

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A07100

    Due to the remarkable benefits provided by 802.16 Broadband Wireless Access (BWA) networks, military interest in such technology has consistently grown. However, preplanned base station locations with tall towers and directionally-optimized antennas are not tactically useful. Therefore, in order for the military to leverage commercial wireless technologies, these technologies must be adapted for a ...

  4. Hand-held Corrosion Scanner/Imager

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N07174

    As a result of the environment in which they operate, Naval aircraft are subject to pervasive corrosion damage. On-board sensors can signal when corrosion may be occurring, but there is a need for a portable corrosion scanning system that can confirm the degree and location of actual corrosion damage. JENTEK’s patented Meandering Winding Magnetometer sensors and arrays (MWM-Array) have prove ...

  5. Exhaust Jet Noise Reduction for Tactical Aircraft

    SBC: Spectral Energies, LLC            Topic: N07173

    A class of high amplitude and high bandwidth actuators called localized arc filament plasma actuators (LAFPAs) have recently been developed at OSU and used for control of high-speed and high Reynolds number jets. The control included successful noise mitigation in a Mach 0.9 jet and mixing enhancement (and very preliminary results for noise mitigation) in a Mach 1.3 ideally expanded jet. The contr ...

  6. NDE for Residual Stress Relaxation

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N07168

    Fatigue lives of rotating engine components are greatly enhanced through application of shot peening and other processes that impart residual compressive stresses to their surfaces. X-ray diffraction measurements, however, confirm that these stresses relax during service. Furthermore, residual stresses may relax rapidly or gradually and can vary by location. This proposal addresses the need for ...

  7. Sensor Fusion of LIBS and Raman Spectra for Remote Detection of Explosives

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A07062

    Physical Sciences Inc. proposes a novel technique to subtract background spectra from the spectra of interest and to then combine the LIBS and Raman spectra for remote explosive detection. Our approach uses support vector machines with transductive inference for training. Based on our experience we anticipate a 95% correct identification of explosive vs. non-explosive material. Further, our calcul ...

  8. Tm:fiber-Based, Reduced Eye-Hazard Laser

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: A07190

    Until recently, gas lasers were the only technology that could provide the powers required for Directed Energy (DE) applications, such as providing area protection to Army forces against rockets, artillery, and mortars. Recent advances in solid state lasers have shown their potential for power scaling to DE levels, and their lack of expendables is major advantage over gas systems. To date, the sol ...

  9. A Tool for Assessing and Conveying Testimony Veracity (TACT-V)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A07116

    HUMINT-specialized technologies (e.g., CI/HUMINT Information Management System (CHIMS), CI/HUMINT Automated Tool Set (CHATS)) provide soldiers with tools that help them capture, disseminate and reason about the information they collect. While these tools can help identify inconsistencies in source testimony, this activity still requires time and the expertise of the HUMINT collector to effectively ...

  10. Modular Affective Reasoning-based Versatile Introspective Architecture (MARVIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB072009

    Robotic vehicles, unmanned systems, and critical command and control networks rely on systems that need to operate effectively in complex, dynamic, and adversarial environments. Currently fielded systems are not up to par—they can be immobilized by simple component failures. Future operations will not tolerate such brittleness, especially given the interconnectivity demanded by future concepts o ...
