  3. Howitzer Ammunition Retrieval and Preparation System (HARPS)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A20179

    The United States Army needs to improve the rate of fire in its fleet of self-propelled howitzers. In existing US howitzers, the reloading process is largely manual and only supports a maximum fire rate of 4 rounds per minute (rpm). The availability of fuzed rounds heavily affects the attainable rate of fire – when pre-fuzed shells are expended, the crew must follow an alternate, extended reload ...

  5. Computer Vision for Real-Time Inventory Management

    SBC: GaN Corporation            Topic: A20179

    Our goal is to create a comprehensive inventory management system using Deep Learning-backed Computer Vision methods. With Computer Vision, we will implement object recognition of essential inventory items on board the Howitzer, allowing for updated, accurate counts in real-time. Using Deep Learning will create an adaptable system that is robust to high levels of noise and occlusion we anticipate ...

  7. On-Wing Cryogen Generator (OWCG)

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A19104

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will lead a team to develop an airborne cryogen generator. Proposed is a compact liquid cryogen production system that uses extremely small turbomachines for all compression and expansion processes and additively manufactured compact heat exchangers for heat rejection and Joule-Thomson cooling. The use of industry-leading compact components with high efficiencies will ...

    SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of DefenseArmy

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A19116

    Polarization imaging has shown significant improvements in contrast in several target detection and discrimination applications. Infrared earth backgrounds can be very complex making it very difficult for a thermal passive sensor system to acquire and identify a target amongst background objects of similar color, size and temperature. Because of this difficulty, the Army has identified the need to ...

  10. Advanced Machine Learning Target Recognition in Munitions

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A19125

    Polaris Sensor Technologies proposes a gun-launched intelligent munition concept for both fixed and moving targets which uses small, low cost sensors. It exploits sensor fusion and polarization measurement to obtain object detection candidates at extended ranges. An Automatic Target Recognition algorithm is used to confirm that the correct candidates are targeted, and employs a new classifier arch ...
