  1. Airworthy Cable Angle Measurement System For Slung Load Operations

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A09013

    Advanced Optical Systems, Inc. (AOS) has developed and demonstrated the Cable Angle Measurement System, a low-cost, accurate system for measuring a helicopter’s load position and motion at the end of an external sling. By using a camera, an LED target, and custom electronics, the AOS system measures the load’s angle with better than 0.1° accuracy across a 150° field of view and with 0.1°/s ...

  2. Antimicrobial Coatings for Medical Shelters

    SBC: AKRON POLYMER SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A09168

    Approximately 2 million infections are acquired in hospitals annually with a major source of bacterial contamination being frequently touched common surfaces. This problem also exists for Combat Surgical Hospitals. Current anti-bacterial coatings are not suitable for these environments because of human toxicity, low activity, and/or poor adhesion. The goal of this project is to develop a low cost, ...

  3. Fatigue Life Modeling & Simulation of Elastomer-Polymer Materials

    SBC: AKRON RUBBER DEVELOPMENT LABORATORY,INCORPORATED            Topic: A09198

    High operating temperatures and harsh environments have caused a significant decrease in elastomeric material durability for military vehicles. ARDL will be using recent advances in material technology, testing methodology, processing, and design-analysis concepts to develop the material model and meet the project goal. Material choices and test designs will be established based on the requirement ...

  4. Innovative Tantalum Machining for Weapon Applications

    SBC: ARES, INC.            Topic: A08044

    Gun barrel bores have been traditionally plated with chromium to reduce erosion and increase barrel life. However, the chrome electro deposition process generates hazardous waste and the DoD has been moving to eliminate its use. Liners made from Tantalum-Tungsten (Ta-W) alloys have been shown to be an acceptable substitute. These alloys have a high melting temperature, are more erosion resistant t ...

  5. Cross-compatible cartridge case for orthodox or rarefaction wave gun firing

    SBC: ARES, INC.            Topic: A10042

    RAVEN technology weapons vent a significant portion of the propellant gases rearward. Therefore the ammunition must allow the gun gases to leave the chamber at the proper time. This is in complete contrast to conventional weapons where the ammunition provides the breech seal during the entire ballistic cycle. As such, the technologies are incompatible and separate supply logistics must be main ...

  6. Improved Tele-Control for Manipulator Equipped Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A09186

    Under the Phase I program, ASI will examine the available technologies for improving manipulation, create preliminary designs of how to integrate these technologies on current platforms (the Talon and Packbot), and simulate the effects of improved dynamic modeling and sensor feedback on manipulator performance. The deliverables for Phase I will thus be: • Preliminary design of retrofit packa ...

  7. Semi-Autonomous Manipulator Control Using 2D and 3D Scene Recognition

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A09187

    Current mobile manipulators require extensive operator involvement to perform even simple tasks, such as opening a door, picking up an object, or emptying a container. “Fly-the-gripper” algorithms have been implemented to free the user from specifying joint velocities when a desired x, y, z gripper path is desired (Berkemeier, Poulson, et al. 2008), (Johnston, et al. 2008). Further, â ...

  8. An Automated, High Throughput, Filter-Free Pathogen Preconcentrator

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A10AT016

    Accurate real-time waterborne pathogen detection is of paramount importance to security of U.S. military forces and installations. Fieldable high-throughput pathogen concentration is a critical analytical need for enhanced detection performance. Existing concentration methods are time-consuming, bulky, labor-intensive, power- and reagent-hungry, and consequently ill-suited for battlefield deployme ...

  9. Microfluidic Yeast-based Impedance Sensor for Food Monitoring

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD09H24

    Current methods for detecting toxicity in food are labor intensive, time-consuming and require access to sophisticated laboratory equipment. To overcome these limitations we propose to develop a novel, microfluidics yeast-based sensor system for detection of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) in food. Robust yeast cell wires and membrane patches will be assembled on-demand and in-situ from suspensi ...

  10. Model based analysis of sleep-wake cycle for early detection of mild TBI

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: OSD09H08

    The goal of this project is to develop a computational algorithm/model to detect subtle changes in neurobiology of sleep-wake cycle due to mild TBI. We aim to quantify early enough the subtle changes in sleep-wake disorder by correlating objective sleep quality measurements as model inputs to the “Injury Leonardo” framework that
