  1. Durable Color Matching Coatings for Vehicle Tires

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A14024

    Signature management technology such as camouflage coatings on military tactical vehicles significantly reduces detection by enemy combatants. Black tires and tracks, however, are in direct contrast to the vehicle and surroundings and constitute a large portion of the vehicle profile. To satisfy this need in Phase I Luna developed a durable, color-matching coating that can be simply applied to tir ...

  2. Pulsed Voltammetry Tools for Advanced Analysis of Electrochemical Power Systems

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152092

    The overall goal of this SBIR is to develop, verify, validate and deliver an analysis tool enabling researchers to use pulse voltammetry methods for enhanced understanding and accelerated development of electrochemical systems. Pulse voltammetry techniques provide high detection sensitivity, discrimination against charging currents, and information sufficient for mechanism identification and extra ...

  3. Enhanced Analysis for Pulsed Voltammetry Evaluation Tool

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A152093

    Pulsed voltammetry is a characterization tool for electrochemical systems that has been around for many decades. Unlike the more commonly used cyclic voltammetry techniques, the additional degrees of freedom intrinsic to pulsed voltammetry techniques permit the decoupling of reaction kinetics from diffusion, and allow for the precise measurement of a range of reaction parameters, including the hal ...

  4. Techniques for Wire Recognition using mmW

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A152095

    Rotorcraft landing and takeoff is dangerous in environments where obstacles, particularly wires or power lines, exist, and pilot vision is degraded by obscurants such as dust, smoke, fog, rain and snow. This SBIR would focus on a radar solution to detecting wires and power cables when landing in a visually degraded environment. Existing data for wires and power lines with millimeter wave radars pr ...

  5. Multi-static Ground Penetrating Radar for Buried Explosive Hazard Detection

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: A15109

    We present a concept for improving standoff ground penetrating radar capabilities for detecting buried explosive hazards (BEH). Currently, standoff detection capabilities are limited to forward looking systems, which provide limited penetration of the ground surface due to the low grazing angle required for forward looking standoff detection. Additionally, forward looking arrays are somewhat limit ...

  6. Dynamic Infrared Projections: Time/Posture Thermal Representation and SAF Integration

    SBC: JRM ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: A14069

    The JRM team (JRM Technologies and Optical Sciences Corporation) proposes to develop a Dynamic Virtual Infrared Training System (DVIRTS), leveraging the teams unique expertise in real-time IR scene projection systems, dynamic 3D thermal target modeling, and physics-based vehicle and ordnance special effects simulation. The JRM Team will design and prototype an optimal IR scene projection system, i ...

  7. Adaptive Inverse Control System for Inter-Cylinder Output Balancing

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A14077

    SBIR Topic A14-077 highlights a well-known issue that, to some degree, haunts all multi-cylinder internal combustion engines: imbalance in power output between cylinders. The underlying reasons range from geometrical differences that impact the airflow entering each cylinder to manufacturing differences between fuel injectors to an array of aging effects in fuel/air delivery systems and the cylind ...

  8. Real-Time Sensor for Continuous On-Line Monitoring of Wastewater Quality

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A14062

    Real-time monitoring of wastewater quality remains an unsolved challenge in the treatment industry. The standard method of biological oxygen demand (BOD) yields slow results (five days); another standard method, chemical oxygen demand (COD), uses hazardous chemicals and does not provide direct information on potential for ecological pollution. The treatment industry has expressed need for the deve ...

  9. Next-Generation Anti-Fog Technology for Military Eyewear

    SBC: AKITA INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A14057

    In this Phase II project, Akita Innovations will improve the performance of our polymeric antifog coating with respect to antifog performance, abrasion resistance, and manufacturability. We will demonstrate a manufacturable material and process that meets all Army MIL-PRF-32432 requirements for protective eyewear, with superior antifog performance compared to existing products, and supply the Army ...

  10. Sky Polarization-based Orientation Tracking for Live Training Environments

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14070

    The Sky Polarization Azimuth Sensing System (SkyPASS) exploits naturally occurring sky polarization to measure absolute heading and offers significant performance enhancement over current azimuth sensing systems such as digital compasses or ring laser gyros. The SkyPASS system is a passive optical sensor that can operate at 10s of Hz, has no warm-up or calibration time, does not require leveling, ...
