  1. An Active Noise Reduction Communication Earplug for Helicopter Crew

    SBC: SOUND INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: A04199

    Army SBIR Topic A04-199 identifies the need for an Active Noise Reduction (ANR) Communication Earplug for Helicopter Crew that, when used in combination with a Gentex HGU-56 helmet, provides “effective attenuation of at least 40 dB at all frequencies, with adequate speech intelligibility, while meeting safety requirements with respect to potential injuries caused by side impacts.” Phase I res ...

  2. Compartment Syndrome Simulator

    SBC: TOUCH OF LIFE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A05172

    Touch of Life Technologies (ToLTech) proposes to develop a computer-based system to train diagnosis and treatment of Compartment Syndrome (CS) manifested in any muscle compartment of the human body. To do this, ToLTech will utilize its extensive experience building and interacting with virtual anatomy, to produce completely virtual patients exhibiting the look and feel of trauma related to CS. The ...

  3. Obstacle Representation Database From Sensor Data

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: A05066

    PercepTek has developed a software package that will process 3D point data from a range sensors such as LADAR or stereo to produce formats more suitable for navigation algorithms. The approach is based on an octree data structure used by PercepTek on its 3D from Video project. The representation serves as an efficient access mechanism for an extensible set of model primitives ranging in complexi ...

  4. Self-Heating Group Ration

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A05197

    U.S. Army staff at the Natick Soldier Center have developed a single-use self-heating group ration, the Unitized Group Ration – Express (UGR-E). This unique kitchen-in-a-box can provide soldiers with a hot meal when operational tempo makes the standard Unitized Group Ration impractical. Prototypes of the UGR-E have used older heater technology that produces flammable hydrogen gas; the large si ...

  5. Smart Snap Hook

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05193

    U.S. Army mass tactical airborne operations occasionally experience the accidental towing of a parachutist due to improper parachute deployment and/or entanglement with the static line. This event often goes undetected for long periods of time after the affected jumper has left the aircraft. This can result in serious or fatal injury of the towed parachutist or subsequent jumpers who make contac ...

  6. Compact self-regenerating JP-8 desulfurizer

    SBC: Mesoscopic Devices LLC            Topic: A04245

    Sulfur compounds in JP-8 are a barrier to its use in fuel cells since sulfur poisons the catalysts used in fuel cells and fuel processors. Mesoscopic Devices has developed a continuous, self-regenerating desulfurization system called the Rapid Cycle Desulfurizer™. This system processes military logistics fuel, producing an ultra-low-sulfur liquid product for fuel cell applications. With a liq ...

  7. Uncooled Midwave Focal Plane Array (FPA) and Camera for RPG Detection

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A04117

    Resistive bolometer capability has evolved such that low noise equivalent temperature difference (NETD) can be achieved on a single focal plane array in both the 3-5 µm (MWIR) and 8-13 µm (BBIR) wavelength bands. The objective of this Phase II development is to build a prototype infrared camera for use in Army applications such as rocket propelled grenade and sniper detection. The camera will ha ...

  8. In-situ Measurement of Automotive Fluids Degradation by Micro-ESR Spectrometry

    SBC: AESOP, INC.            Topic: A05223

    Aesop’s Micro-ESR™ sensor is a miniature electron spin resonance (ESR) sensor designed to continuously measure oxidation, soot, ferrous particles and humidity levels in engine oil and hydraulic fluid. The Micro-ESR sensor’s small size, low power consumption and low cost make it ideal for integration into vehicles, heavy machinery, generators and fixed engine installations. This sensor will a ...

  9. Two-Way Bone Conduction Communication System for High Noise Environments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A05041

    Bone conduction communication has the potential to offer many advantages for communication between Army personnel carrying out their missions. This will be especially important for the Future Force Warrior (FFW) where stealth operations, hearing protection, or environmental noise will make communication with acoustic conduction either impossible or not advisable. The goal of this project is to de ...

  10. Network-Centric Multiple Frame Association for Distributed Multiple Target Tracking

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: A05132

    The coordinated use of these multiple distributed sensors by network communication has the potential to substantially improve track state estimates, associated feature and attribute estimates, and identification of targets (ID and CID), primarily due to geometric diversity, complementary sensor information, and different coverage areas. To achieve this substantial improvement in the fusion capabi ...
