  1. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  2. Advanced Small, Lightweight Multi-Fueled 1,000- 1,500 W Variable Speed Load Following Man-Portable Power Unit

    SBC: SPECTRUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: A12048

    The U.S. Army has long recognized the benefits of load following gensets in terms of substantially reducing both fuel consumption and acoustic noise signature. The overall goal for the proposed effort is to develop an advanced 1-man portable, multi-fueled, electric power unit with load following capability and selectable 120 VAC, 28 VDC, and battery charger outputs. The 1500W size range is parti ...

  4. Air-to-Air Targeting Algorithms for Turreted Gun Systems

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12099

    Continuing development of airborne threats has increased risk for military rotorcraft. Development of air to air targeting algorithms for a stabilized turreted gun systems has not kept pace with technology and improvements are needed to be effective against aerial systems. Military helicopters use machine guns as offensive and defensive weapons against air and ground targets. However, they have ch ...

  5. Aladdin: Semi-Autonomous Module for Robotic Door Opening

    SBC: Honeybee Robotics, Ltd.            Topic: A08203

    Honeybee Robotics and iRobot propose to develop technologies that will enable small UGVs to open doors semi-autonomously. These technologies will be integrated in a modular Aladdin Payload that can be retrofitted onto existing general-purpose robots with manipulator arms without extensive hardware modifications. In Phase I of the Aladdin Project, we demonstrated the feasibility of a door-opening e ...

  6. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  7. Anti-Reverse Engineering (RE) Techniques

    SBC: Lewis Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD10A04

    LIT accomplished all Phase I goals and technical objectives. During Phase I, LIT designed a zero power/ultra low power sensor using an ultra low power microprocessor and an electromagnetic sensing element. Embedded code was developed, providing primary anti-tamper function, as well as a real time clock, event logging, and event read-back. Active and passive mode sensors were developed and demon ...

  8. Antimicrobial Drug Targeted to Essential Bacterial Genes in Wound Infection Pathogens

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A11104

    Wounds infected with drug-resistant Gram-negative bacteria can increase morbidity, hospital length of stay and cost. Among these Klebsiella pneumoniae and Pseudomonas aeruginosa have become important causes of concern in military personnel wounded in battlefield. New classes of antimicrobial agents are needed to combat this threat. Emerging work has focused on a new type of strategy through gene s ...

  9. Asynchronous Network Signal Sensing and Classification Techniques: ANDRO's Automatic Modulation Classification with Multiple Sensors (AMCMS) Capabilit

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: A11028

    This effort considers the problem of Automatic Modulation Classification (AMC) using multiple asynchronous sensors in non-cooperative environments under low signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) regimes. The goal is to improve and demonstrate the performance of AMC systems on various weak signal scenarios in a multi-cast environment that a traditional single sensor would not be able to readily classify. Can ...

  10. Aviator Mission Tasker of Distributed Unmanned Assets

    SBC: KUTTA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A11131

    Kutta Technologies proposes development of an Aviator Mission Tasker Toolkit (AMTT) which affords users the ability to drag and drop logical agent-based features to create a Manned/Unmanned Teaming (MUM-T) application that will interface with modern avionics systems and provide for multi-vehicle unmanned systems control with low cognitive workload. To engineer the system, Kutta teams with world-re ...
