  1. Neuromorphic Control System for Powered Limb Splints

    SBC: Advensys, LLC            Topic: A04T009

    AdveNsys, Inc. will join with Arizona State University to develop a neuromorphic analog system to control an actuated, lightweight, powered ankle-foot orthosis. The neuromorphically actuated orthosis will provide mobility in the battlefield for soldiers with lower-leg wounds or fractures to enable them to be evacuated with minimal medical support. This effort builds upon our expertise in modeling ...

  2. Biocidal Textiles for Soldier Protection and Homeland Defense

    SBC: BIOSAFE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Protection against biological warfare is a key military and civilian requirement strongly substantiated by recent events in the U.S. and around the world. This newly defined market has significant national defense implications. Protective clothing worn by United States military personnel can be contaminated by exposure to external bio-warfare agents or bacterial contamination from the skin. Bacte ...

  3. Corrosion Protection of Aluminum Aerospace Alloys by Biofilm Appliques

    SBC: CORTEC CORP.            Topic: A04T003

    Fabrication procedures have been proposed to develop biofilm-containing appliques capable of mitigating the corrosion of aluminum aerospace alloys (e.g. AA2024-T3). The proposed methods are expected to produce surface protective flexible polymer coatings that containing bacterial biofilms capable of providing corrosion protection to the metal surfaces of aircraft and other military equipment to wh ...

  4. Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler


    Development of an Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler with enhanced optical triggering capability is proposed, following a highly successful Phase I effort that clearly demonstrated feasibility. The threat of a bioaerosol attack can be partially mitigated by deployment of a cost-effective sensor network. High priority programs, such as BioWatch and Portal Shield will benefit from a sensor compliant to Join ...

  5. Nanostructured Thermoelectric Composites

    SBC: Omega Piezo Technologies            Topic: A04T007

    We propose to develop synthesis and processing approaches to high density semiconductor quantum dot/conducting polymer nanocomposites that exhibit improved efficiencies in thermoelectric devices. The best thermoelectric semiconductors currently have a dimensionless thermoelectric figure of merit, ZT, of approximately 1. Doubling or tripling ZT will increase the range of application and market siz ...

  6. Fast Laser Pulse Shaping for Molecular Control and CB Detection

    SBC: Proteus Optics Llc            Topic: A04T008

    We propose the development of a robust laser pulse shaping system (LPSS) for commercialization to the defense, industrial and academic communities for advanced laser processing applications. The LPSS will be used for closed-loop control of molecular reactions and dynamics by coherent electromagnetic fields. In Phase I we will design and assemble breadboard LPSS and demonstrate molecular reaction c ...

  7. Technology to Regulate Circadian Rhythm for Health and Performance

    SBC: BRAIN STATE TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A14AT009

    We propose a wearable, dual-use neurotechnology device. The Personal Brainwave Headband, driven by tablet or smartphone, is designed for noninvasive closed-loop acoustic stimulation, to permit improved circadian regulation. It will measure brain electrical activity from scalp overlying four key sectors of cortex, perform high-resolution spectral analysis of the signals, and use software algorith ...

  8. Terrain Analysis for Human-Robot Interaction (TAH-RI)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: A04T001

    Military decision-making for ground forces is driven by tactical constraints and opportunities based on terrain. Future Force Warrior (FFW)and Future Combat Systems (FCS) are developing advanced functional capabilities, but soldiers still have to take and hold tactically significant terrain. Adding robotic vehicles, sensors, and weapons systems creates a planning and coordination challenge for t ...

  9. Powerful Source of Collimated Coherent Infrared Radiation with Pulse Duration Fewer than Ten Cycles

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: A14AT006

    Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are highly demanded for a variety of practical applications. NP Photonics and University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system at 8-12 micron capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy>100 microJoule. In this phase I program, we will design the whole laser system and do a feasibil ...
