  1. Field Portable B1BS Instrument to Detect Multi-Multi-Metals in Soil and Lead in Paint

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes the development of an instrument based on laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) for the detection of lead in paint and soil that will have both military and commercial applications. The Phase I instrument will be similar to multi-species, portable LIBS instruments built by Dr. David Cremers at Los Alamos National Laboratory that utilize a spectrograph/charge coupled ...

  2. Automated Airborne Measurement of Ozone

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ozone is arguably the most important trace gas in the atmosphere, and improved monitoring of ozone throughout the atmosphere is essential. This Phase 2 project continues the development of a complete, automated system for measuring ozone from on board commercial aircraft. There is already one program within NOAA, CAAMP (Commercial Aircraft Atmospheric Measurement Program), for measuring a variety ...

  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 ...

  4. Advanced ATC for Tactical Information Processing

    SBC: ATLANTIC AEROSPACE ELECTRONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is directed at achieving Automatic Target Cueing (ATC) performance at levels which are essential for near term system deployment. The performance required for deployment is beyond the capability of current systems. The design emphasis is to have robust performance under a full range of operating conditions, and to use techniques which lead to efficient real time implementatio ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Advanced Absolute Radiometers Using Superconducting Transition Thermometers

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE RESEARCH AND INSTRUMENTATION            Topic: N/A

    In our Phase 1 work we were able to replicate and build on recent results at NIST with superconducting transition (SCT) thermometers, which suggested that dramatic improvements may be achieved in detectivity and range of application, of cryogenic electrical substitution radiometers. Cryo-ESR's are widely used as the most accurate absolute standards of radiative flux and irradiance. In Phase 2, we ...

  7. Cognition-driven Tool for Visual Countermeasure Evaluation

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design a model of visual target acquisition that can predict human performance in detecting low-contrast targets in complex scenes. This model will build on current state-of-the-art computational models of early human vision and visual search, and use proven cognitive modeling methods (belief networks for situation assessment and expert systems for knowledge-based reasoning) to mode ...

  8. C2WARS: Command and Control Warfare Agent-based Reasoning System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I effort proposes to prototype and demonstrate a Case-Based Reasoning Tool for Command and Control Warfare (C2W) Strategy Development. Our effort is motivated by the need to thoroughly understand and graphically depict vulnerabilities in the information battle space since Intelligence Preparation of the Battle Space (IPIBS) is the fundamental basis for successful execution of C2-attack ...

  9. AVID: Agent for Visualization and Intelligent Decision-Aiding

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a robust, adaptive Agent for visualization and Intelligent Decision-aiding (AVID). The AVID architecture consists off four modules, one each for: decision-aiding, visualization, profile adjustments, and communication and coordination. the structure of the key decision-aiding and visualization modules closely matches a unified cognitive theory, so as to provide assistance at ...

  10. Residual Life Indicator Based on Dye Desorption

    SBC: CHEMMOTIF, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a novel type of Residual Life Indicator (RLI) for determining the remaining capacity after prolonged storage of Chemical Protective Garments (CPC). These garments, which are designed for use by troops at risk of exposure to chemical weapons, can be stored for long periods of time in sealed bags. However. if a bag leaks or is punctured, common air pollutants like fuel vapors and p ...
