  1. Acoustic direction finding using biologically inspired techniques

    SBC: IC TECH, INC.            Topic: A04T013

    The ability to determine the direction and characteristics of sounds they hear is one many birds and mammals are endowed with. This biological ability evolved over millions of years, and if one can understand the mechanisms, one expects, we can copy and mimic the capability to some extent in practical applications. Audio cues are also essential for situation awareness for soldiers. Ability t ...

  2. Adaptive Artificial Intelligence for Next-Generation Conflict Simulation

    SBC: John Tiller Software, Inc            Topic: AF03T022

    This proposal is for the design and development of a challenging, adaptable, and extendible AI system for use in state-of-the-art computer-based wargames. The development will result in a 3rd generation computer wargame based on modern air power conflict and the ability to apply the technology developed for this project in other wargames ranging from tactical ground-based warfare to naval conflic ...

  3. All-Nitrogen or High-Nitrogen Compounds as High Energy Density Materials

    SBC: ERC, INC.            Topic: AF04T003

    During Phase I of the proposed program, ERC-Incorporated proposes to identify novel promising polynitrogen candidates by means of theoretical calculations. Furthermore, preliminary tests will be carried out to explore the feasibility of synthesizing the most promising candidates. High-nitrogen compounds constitute a second area of significant interest. It is well known that the insertion of one he ...

  4. Design and Testing of a Water Based Fire Extinguishing System for On-Board Hydrogen Peroxide Fires

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: MDA04T004

    The Air Force has demonstrated that a water is capable of extinguishing comparable H2O2 oxidizer fires with 23 pounds of water vs 67 pounds of halon. Recent advances in sensor technology make it possible to detect an H2O2 leak prior to ignition, or to rapidly detect ignition in order to initiate fire protection system water flow. Recent findings by Streamline Automation also indicate that fire e ...

  5. Develop and/or Improve Optical Coating Processes for Military Mirrors

    SBC: FLEXIAL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A space-saving, economical, collapsible alternative to rigid sunshades-and particularly a replacement for beryllium sunshades-for the protection of optical coatings and heat seeking sensors on kinetic kill vehicles and similar equipment. The bellows sunshade is a self-deploying, non-toxic, titanium, all metallic, non-outgassing cylindrical shield that can expand up to twelve times its stowed leng ...

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

    SBC: Biophotonic Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A04T008

    Monitoring the air for potential chemical and biological agents (from terrorist threats or from industrial contamination) has become a necessity. Our proposal objective is to develop device capable of fast (1 second), accurate (even in a chemically complex environment), robust (stand alone, closed-loop, and portable), and reproducible sensing. Operationally, the device interfaces with a commercial ...

  8. Femtosecond Laser Micromachining of Optical Structures and Surfaces

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: MDA04T016

    Translume is proposing a glass manufacturing process that combines anisotropic wet chemical etching with femtosecond-laser nanostructuring to shape three-dimensional glass objects. This innovative fabrication technique can be used to machine optical structures, optical sensors, and optical surfaces with micron and submicron accuracy. It can also be used to texture surfaces. Our technique is cost-e ...

  9. Highly Robust, Temperature-Stable, Nano-structured Fluoropolymers for Battlefield Resuscitation Applications

    SBC: DENDRITECH, INC            Topic: A04T024

    The aim of this research program is to evaluate highly fluorinated yet water soluble, nano-scaled polymers for use in battlefield resuscitation applications where highly efficient oxygen transport is required. These polymers will represent a quantum leap over current artificial oxygen transport technology, which includes modified hemoglobin (e.g., crosslinked human, animal and recombinant hemoglob ...
