  1. Phase Change Material Thermal Energy Storage (PCM-TES) for ECU Efficiency Improvement

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13EP1

    This proposal presents an hourly thermal load analysis for shelters cooled by 9,000 and 18,000 Btu/hr environmental control units (ECUs). This model suggests a highly variable heat load throughout a standard hot-dry day that can vary by a factor of 20 from the lowest to highest thermal load. This scenario is ideal for load shifting and consumption reduction through thermal energy storage (TES). In ...

  2. Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: A12038

    In the first phase of this program Plasmonics was able to make a breadboard profile sensor using COTS optics and a pyroelectric-linear-detector array that was able to detect a human by subtending greater than 16 pixels across the target at a range of up to 75 m. Based on work in Phase I, it was concluded that the design of existing COTS linear-detector arrays was insufficient to achieve a range of ...

  3. Gear Coatings for Loss of Lubrication Mitigation

    SBC: Phygen Coatings, Inc.            Topic: A14001

    Army rotorcrafts are required to operate in extreme situations such as loss of lubrication to the drive systems. Current designs allow for 30 minutes of operation at 50% power, but the Army has a need to improve aircraft survivability beyond this threshold. Phygen Coatings has developed a unique, patented technology for surface improvement of industrial tooling and precision machine components. In ...

  4. Innovative Seat Restraint Systems for Troops in Rotorcraft

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A14002

    The objective of this program is to develop a troop restraint system that is easier, more intuitive, and quicker to install than current systems, while providing improved restraint over the current four- and five-point systems. The program consists of a six-month effort to develop critical components of the system and to produce a prototype design. In the four-month option, prototype systems will ...

  5. High Capacity Materials and Advanced Engineering for Thermal Batteries

    SBC: ENSER Corporation, The            Topic: A14009

    Thermal batteries are mission critical components which provide power to military weapon systems for electronics, fusing, sensing and actuation. Current and future thermal battery packaging and performance requirements are being pushed to the limits, demanding a substantial increase in potential and energy density over current state-of-the-art. Critical changes being implemented in next generatio ...

  6. High Voltage Pulse Forming Network (PFN) Capacitor

    SBC: HARP ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: A14063

    Advanced pulsed power capacitors with energy densities of above 10 J/cc and high breakdown strength are required for the military of the future.While polymers such as BOPP and PET offer excellent loss characteristics, their low energy density has led to a search for alternative polymer dielectrics that can provide greater energy in a smaller package.Polyvinylidene fluoride and its co- and ter- pol ...

  8. Flexible, Compact Acoustic Transducer Arrays

    SBC: Interdisciplinary Consulting Corporation            Topic: A12086

    For military applications, acoustic arrays can provide target signatures and locations of aircrafts, vehicles, weapons and personnel. Additional benefits of arrays include immunity to jamming, low cost, low weight and low power consumption. Acoustic beamforming using conventional arrays typically require 10~100s of microphones and have an aperture size ranging from several inches to several feet ...

  9. HCI and C2 for Autonomous Air Evacuation of Casualties

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12111

    As a company that focuses on fixed-based and man-packable Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) Ground Control Stations (GCSs), Kutta has been privileged to work with the U.S. Government and Prime Contractors on shaping the future of the unmanned resupply capability. Kutta leverages this knowledge and its experience with multiple unmanned Vertical Take-Off and Landing (VTOL) resupply programs and UASs to ...

  10. Nanotechnology Approach for Transmission Loss-of-Lubrication Survivability

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: A13022

    Applied Colloids has developed a simple nanotechnology technique with which to provide a low coefficient of friction on the interacting surfaces of gears and other interacting machinery. This technology would widen the window with which a rotorcraft woul
