  1. Novel Concepts for Lightweight Helicopter Ballistic Protection Systems

    SBC: ADVENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Current and future Army helicopter missions require close support of combat operations, resulting in exposure to enemy ground fire. Current armor systems significantly reduce the load carrying capacity of the helicopter thereby reducing its mission effectiveness. New innovative technologies to significantly reduce the areal density of armor is needed to make significant enhancements to survivabili ...

  2. Polarization Coupling Analyzer for Interferometric Fiber Optic Gyroscope (IFOG) Coils


    The ability to characterize optical fiber coils with long lengths of fiber (at least one kilometer) is crucial for the characterization and testing of interferometric fiber optic gyroscope systems. An important characteristic of the fiber sensing coil which directly impacts system performance parameters such as bias stability is the amplitude and spatial location of spurious polarization cross-co ...

  3. Personal Heating System

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    While the benefits of auxiliary heating of the human body when exposed to extremely cold temperatures are well known, there is currently no suitable technology developed to provide body heating in a completely autonomous and mobile system. In Phase I of the proposed program Aspen Systems will investigate the various technologies available to provide auxiliary heating to the body and identify thos ...

  6. Human Dynamics Modeling: The Digital Biomechanics Laboratory

    SBC: BOSTON DYNAMICS            Topic: N/A

    An advanced human simulation system could serve as a digital biomechanics laboratory in which simulated humans perform useful tasks under novel conditions. It will allow us to measure loads, forces, and energy levels in humans that are difficult if not impossible to obtain any other way. It could be used to evaluate the effectiveness of clothing, footwear, equipment or movement strategies. Rapid ...

  7. Scene Generation Quality Assessment

    SBC: CAMBER CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Production of 3D terrain databases for visualization requires resolving tradeoffs between a complex set of constraints: time, resources, accuracy, resolution, hardware, limitations, etc. The relationship between these parameters and the quality of the final database for most applications is not well understood. There are few tools to measure quality and there is little understanding of the impac ...

  8. Multi Pulse laser Ignition for Ultra Cold Turboshaft Engine Starting

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Recent CFDRC and Los Alamos National Lab CRADA research activity has demonstrated 100% JTAGG fuel injector ignition reliability at fuel tesperatures approaching -10 F using precisely controlled multiple pulse formatting of a single 150 mj laser discharge. This level of performance is achievable with minimal packaging complexity using diode pumped Nd:YAG lasers and demonstrated fiber optics/window ...

  10. Multiple Laser Pulse Ignition for Ultra Cold Starting of CI Engines

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The demonstration of CI engine injector ignition using multiple laser energy pulsing at cold soak conditions approaching -40F is proposed. This level of ignition performance will be demonstrated using a 150 mj Nd:YAG laser, low cost fiber optics, and quartz windows to minimize cost and packaging. Specific Phase I research includes: 1) Experimental quantification of optimally pulsed laser energy, ...
