  1. High Performance UAV System Design Based on High Power Microturbine Technology

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A radical, high performance system design concept for UAV missions is proposed. Its characteristics derive directly from propulsion and power generation capabilities inherent in microturbine technology under development at MIT. The proposed vehicle configurations is an oblate spheroid, giving a high package volume with sufficient fuel capacity for hover duration of about one hour. Thrust from m ...

  2. Linearly Oscillating Miniature Internal Combustion Engine (MICE)

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Micro Aerial Vehicle (¿AVs) will open up a wide range of new missions for the US Armed Forces, but also present a new set of technical challenges. The power and propulsion system will have a significant impact on the ultimate capabilities and range of missions of ¿AVs. While advanced battery technology can provide good propulsion performance for ¿AVs, miniature internal combustion engines can ...

  3. Bayes' Nets for the Dynamic Database

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    recent advances in sensor technology have enabled collection of vast quantities of battlefield information. Warfighters will soon gain global access to this huge volume of information. Rather than construct separate redundant, and inconsistent situation estimates, a Dynamic Database can reduce the data to a comprehensive, self-consistent representation of the environment. This proposal explores ...

  4. Development of Methods to Ruggedize Graded Index Communication Grade Plastic Optical Fiber

    SBC: BOSTON OPTICAL FIBER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose a SBIR program which will provide Basic Research and Exploratory Development of fluorinated graded index plastic optical fiber. Recent breakthroughs in the design of graded index plastic optical fibers have dramatically increased POF's data transmission rate. A bandwidth of more than 3 (three) Ghz at 100 meters has been demonstrated. Fluoropolymers with elevated glass transition temp ...

  5. Development of a Force-Reflecting Laparoscopic Telemanupulator

    SBC: BROCK ROGERS SURGICAL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Brock-Rogers Surgical (BRS) proposes to develop a telemanipulator system that will improve the dexterity of laparoscopic instrumentation and enable remote telepresence surgery. The micro-manipulator will provide users tactile sensing through coupling to a force-reflecting haptic interface. The system applies advanced techniques in robotics engineering and sensory feedback developed in the Artifi ...

  6. TACTICS: Toolset for Acquiring Critical Tactical Information from C4I Systems

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

    The growing digitization of the battlefield gives the commander an opportunity to access large amounts of information, but only a portion of this may be important at any one time in answering his Priority Intelligence Requirements (PIRs). PIRs are critical to the commander for making tactical decisions to accomplish the mission and each PIR necessitates identifying relevant tactical information f ...

  7. Tunable Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550 nm

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Development of Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers for 1550nm communication applications has been hindered by the lack of high quality Bragg mirrors. Efforts for growing high quality InGaAsP/InP, SbGaAsAI/InGaAsP as well as wafer-bonding with GaAs/AIOx mirrors are on-going but significant breakthroughs in material quality and yield are needed before devices are produced. In addressing this ch ...

  8. A Novel Three Dimensional Biomaterial for the Production of Multiple Blood Cell Types

    SBC: Cytomatrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I project will examine the feasibility of utilizing a novel three dimensional culture device, termed Cellfoam to support the in vitro production of red blood cells, white blood cells and platelets from primitive CD34+ hematopoietic progenitor cells (HPCs). The high demand for blood and blood components in the civilian and military populations, coupled with the growing risk of blood-bor ...

  9. Spontaneous Conversion of JP-8 and DF-2 to Gaseous SOFC Fuel

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This program is directed towards developing catalytic membrane reactors for promoting the spontaneous conversion of logistic fuels to a gaseous feedstock compatible for subsequent introduction into the anode compartment of a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC). These membranes behave as short circuited electrochemical cells with both ionic and electronic transport proceeding through the membrane bulk. ...

  10. Low-Power Reflective Flat Panel Displays

    SBC: Etalon, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Etalon has recently demonstrated a fundamentally new display technology based on Microelectromechanical (MEM) Strucutres. Exploiting the phenomena of interference, these interferometric modulators (IMods) are simple membrane structures whose colors change when deformed electrostatically. IMods have already demonstrated drive voltages of 25 volts, response times of 1 microsecond, and prominent hy ...
