  3. Non-Lethal Munitions for Defeating Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A13058

    The US Army has the requirement for a vehicle-mounted and/or man-portable Low Frequency Currents Injected in the Ground (LFCIG) technology that can detect, image and reliably pre-detonate, or otherwise render unusable buried Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs). This LFCIG technology has been successfully developed and tested during Phase II SBIR effort. During the subsequent Phase II effort GRA wi ...

  4. Technologies for Modular Refrigeration

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: A15065

    TIAX LLC proposes to continue the successful development in Phase I of the modular refrigerator (MORF) into Phase II. The design that has resulted from the Phase I effort will operate in ambient temperatures up to 135oF and combines low energy consumption with large interior volume relative to the external dimensions. State of the art, commercially available components are used, so that high perfo ...

  5. Matched Filter Chaos Communications

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11AT002

    It has recently been mathematically proven that optimal communication systems necessarily have chaotic waveforms. Perhaps surprisingly, any communication system that utilizes a simple linear matched filter to achieve optimal detection of a signal, received by way of a noisy channel, must transmit a chaotic waveform. Using the concept of exactly-solvable chaos, communication systems can be built ...

  6. Compressive Sensing Flash IR 3D Imager

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A15AT007

    Physical Sciences Inc. in collaboration with Colorado State University proposes to develop a compact infrared flash 3D imaging sensor employing compressive sensing (CS) approaches. The CS 3D sensor offers a combination of high range resolution (10 cm), high point cloud density (6464 format), and fast 3D image frame rates (10 Hz) in a low cost, compact form factor employing commercial off the shelf ...

  7. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  8. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    White River Technologies, Inc. (WRT) and University of Vermont (UVM) present this proposal, "Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines". Among the primary gaps in our current landmine detection technology base is the ability to detect a wide range of buried explosive hazards including emerging low-metal mines and improvised explosive devices ...

  9. Vibration-Enhanced Sensing of Buried Landmines

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    Vadum will develop a vibration-enhanced detection and sensing system to identify buried landmines by exciting mechanical vibrations that are detectable using a sensitive radio-frequency (RF) ground-penetrating vibrometer. The system will induce vibrations in the target electromagnetically, stimulating specific modes that distinguish mines from other metal clutter. An innovative RF vibrometer per ...

  10. Paper test cards for detection of illicit narcotic and cannabinioid drugs

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water to activate the tests. Within five minutes, a color ...
