  1. 3 kW Lightweight Efficient Generator

    SBC: NOVATIO Engineering, Inc            Topic: A12100

    At NOVATIO Engineering, our solution to this problem is practical, novel, proven at a smaller scale and now demonstrated at the 3 kW size range: conversion of a commercial lightweight gasoline generator to operate with diesel fuel or JP-8 in spark ignition mode. Prior to this Phase I SBIR effort, with the help of CERDEC funding, Novatio had developed and demonstrated a JP-8/DF-2-fueled 750W proto ...

  2. 360 degree field of view information in a 120 degree immersive virtual reality (VR) display

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A17135

    Army aviators are flying helicopters in highly dynamic and dangerous scenarios. In urban warfare, this can mean avoiding obstacles and external threats. On platforms like the US Army CH-47 Chinook, the pilot has guidance from a flight engineer or crew chief who can look down through a hatch in the floor. Other Army helicopters do not have that luxury. Regardless, there are numerous blind spots rem ...

  3. 3D Tomographic Scanning Microwave Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution

    SBC: Alcatera LLC            Topic: A17AT008

    Scanning probe microscopy (SPM) is a technique used to detect near-field interaction when a sample is rater-scanned by a probe. Example include atomic force microscope (AFM) and scanning tunneling microscope (STM). It offers nanometric and atomic image resolution. In this field, an emerging technique, Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM), utilizes microwave evanescent waves to attain the ...

  4. A Computational Chemistry Approach to Signature Mechanisms of High Altitude Maneuvering Missiles

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A17124

    Theater missile threats often fly through and maneuver at high altitudes, where their signature can substantially change. New chemical signature mechanisms and non-equilibrium conditions will become important. The new mechanisms change the appearance of threat signatures and must be taken into account when developing detection, track, and guidance sensors and algorithms. Spectral Sciences Inc. (SS ...

  5. A LIDAR for Mapping Dense Aerosols

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: A14041

    Smoke and obscurants are used on the battlefield to enhance friendly operations and degrade enemy operations. When coupled with naturally occurring obscurants, such as rain, snow, or fog, limited visibility becomes the normal battlefield operating condition. Enemy surveillance and weapon systems use visual, infrared, laser, and/or radar regions of the spectrum. Smoke and obscurants provide low-cos ...

  6. A Low-Toxicity, Non-Pyrotechnic, High Yield Visible Obscurant

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A17059

    There is a need to replace toxic obscurant smokes with non-toxic alternatives, without sacrificing the efficacy of the obscurant. Nano Terra proposes to formulate non-toxic, hygroscopic materials into smoke formulations that will produce smoke having high mass extinction coefficients. These formulations will produce aerosols with well-defined yield factors, leading to highly efficient smoke genera ...

  7. A multicomponent indicator ticket for presumptive field identification of hazardous materials

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: A17063

    The objective of this program is to demonstrate a multicomponent ticket that affords a human-readable indicator response to chemical agents, protein-content, and explosive/energetic materials for presumptive field identification. The current product, M8 paper, lacks selectivity and only works for the identification of three classes of chemical threat agents. Multiple products are required to detec ...

  8. A Novel Strategy for Treating Peripheral Nerve Injury

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A13084

    Nano Terra, Inc. and the Harvard Stem Cell Institute propose to develop a novel nerve grafting system that will support intrinsic neuronal repair (injuries 3 cm). The creation of an implantable device or devices utilizing a novel scaffold provides an opportunity to utilize a biocompatible material that can easily be manufactured to desired structural and mechanical specifications, i.e., fiber dia ...

  9. A Novel Video-based Adaptive Intelligent Hemispherical Threat Detection System


    Remotely Operated Weapon Systems (ROWS) keep soldiers away from hostile situations while they take on the enemy and thus dramatically enhance the weapon lethality and increase soldiers survivability. However, current wide area threat detection capabilities for ROWS fall short of providing robust and continuous threat awareness. In this project, UtopiaCompression (UC) proposes to develop an innovat ...

  10. A Toxic Industrial Chemical Functional Analysis System for Training Exercise Ranges (TIC-FASTER)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A13078

    The managers of military facilities are legally and ethically bound to address the effects of their operations on the environment. Individual facility managers themselves, however, are unlikely to have the specific expertise necessary to project and mitigate the long-term effects of contaminant release. In addition, these tasks compete with the day-to-day operational aspects of their roles, includ ...
