  1. Biomimetic Control of Flying Robots

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08056

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) demonstrated in Phase I that it is possible to design a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) which is robust to collisions by using techniques similar to what insects use to recover from collisions while still in flight. Observational studies of insects colliding with objects (high speed films of instrumented insects) conducted at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory show that the ...

  2. The Robotic Mule

    SBC: BOSTON DYNAMICS            Topic: A03242

    We propose to develop Legged Robot Mule, a new kind of robot that helps dismounted soldiers by carrying part of their load. Legged Robot Mule will travel on operationally relevant terrain, such as narrow mountain trails and densely wooded jungles. It will use dynamic balance to support its payload while maintaining a narrow base, enhancing its mobility. It will use computer vision to follow a hum ...

  3. Triton Composite Airdrop Platform (TCAP)(1000-532)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A02205

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to engineer, prototype, and test the lightweight and low-cost Triton Composite Airdrop Platform (TCAP) to support the US Army’s future Joint Precision Airdrop System (JPADS) and other military cargo and airdrop missions. The TCAP will enhance Army Future Force and Future Combat Systems (FF/FCS) mission performance by increasing net payload weight and decreasing init ...

  4. High Throughput Processing for Hyperspectral Imaging Sensors

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08115

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a signal processing system to facilitate real-time detection of chemical and biological threats via analysis of hyperspectral infrared imagery produced by portable imaging spectrometers. The processor will support simultaneous detection of up to 16 different target materials using a spectral-matching-based detection algorithm. For datacubes acquir ...

  5. Development of a Two Color Polarimetric Forward Looking Infrared (FLIR) Camera System

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A10058

    Dual MWIR/LWIR polarization imaging holds promise for providing significant improvements in contrast in a number of target detection and discrimination applications. In several recent development efforts, it has been demonstrated that manmade objects have a significantly stronger polarization signal than natural backgrounds resulting in good contrast that complements the conventionally imaged infr ...

  6. Ethylene Control in Fresh Fruits and Vegetables

    SBC: PRIMAIRA, LLC            Topic: A06180

    The accumulation of ethylene in the transport and storage of fresh produce is an important problem for the US Army and for commercial agriculture. Certain fruits and vegetables generate ethylene as a natural part of their ripening cycle. Other fruits and vegetables are highly sensitive to the presence of ethylene, but may or may not produce the ethylene themselves. Small amounts of ethylene can in ...

  7. Field Repair of Localized Damage on Dynamic Rotorcraft Components.

    SBC: AVION, INC.            Topic: A07009

    U.S. Army helicopter fatigue sensitive dynamic components are required to maintain structural integrity throughout their operational life cycle. Typical metal alloy fatigue sensitive dynamic components require the presence of surface compressive residual stresses to inhibit the initiation and propagation of fatigue cracks. However, some of these components are susceptible to localized mechanical ...

  8. Portable “no-assembly” wideband antenna for HF broadcast

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A07043

    In this Phase II SBIR Army Program, Physical Sciences Inc. will design, build, and test a novel high-gain, quasi-volumetric, directive antenna array comprising advanced single radiating elements that were demonstrated in Phase I. These single quasi-volumetric elements provide more directive pattern, greater bandwidth, and higher gain than conventional dipole antennas in less than half the linear ...

  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 ...

  10. An Insecticide Matrix for Sand Fly and Mosquito Control in Severe Environments(1001-080)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A06152

    Triton Systems, Inc. proposes to optimize further the insecticide system developed in Phase I. In Phase I, we showed that our insecticide system performed better than a commercial residual spray after heat or UV exposure. Our insecticide system will remain effective for an extended period time after application, even under harsh environmental conditions, to control mosquitoes and sand flies. In ad ...
