  1. Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

    SBC: Navatek Llc            Topic: N06T021

    The Navatek, Ltd. Team will successfully demonstrate the feasibility of using Fiber Reinforced Composites (FRC) materials to significantly reduce the weight of the (hull) structure of the Littoral Combat Ship (LCS) Unmanned Surface Vehicle (USV). We will use as a baseline for comparison our entrapment tunnel monohull (ETM) hullform. This hullform was selected by the Navy to satisfy the LCS (Flight ...

  2. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Recent statistics from Operation Iraqi Freedom (OIF) show that significant proportion of soldiers injured in blast explosion endure traumatic brain injury (TBI). At the same time our understanding of TBI mechanisms and protection against kinetic and blast

  3. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An ena

  4. Matched and Ultra-Low CTE Optical Materials

    SBC: GATR Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T021

    A new material and processing technology has been developed and demonstrated that will dramatically reduce the cost of manufacturing and refurbishing large aluminum based mirrors for optical test applications. Such precision mirrors are also required for surveillance, directed energy, cryo-vacuum scene generation, optical testing, and DoD-sponsored space programs. Traditional aluminum mirror techn ...

  5. A Systems Biology Approach to Enable Safe Administration of Mefloquine

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A06T034

    The objective of this effort is to apply a systems-biology-centered methodology for the identification of subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity, with the goal of developing a genetic profile to identify individuals predisposed to mefloquine neurotoxicity. The core hypothesis is that elucidating subcellular mechanisms of mefloquine neurotoxicity requires the combination of cellular lev ...

  6. Advanced Infrared (IR) Sensor Components for Missile Defense

    SBC: Nanolight, Inc.            Topic: MDA06T011

    The objective of this proposal is to further explore PbSnSe detector array on Si substrate. Two approaches are proposed. One is a zero-risk incremental advance that employs a new growth condition to reduce the dislocation density. Another approach is a novel fabrication technique with high-risk but it could enable revolutionary rather than evolutionary advances. IV-VI semiconductors such as Pb1-x ...

  7. Advanced Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T003

    This effort proposes to design and demonstrate the concept of an innovative, Advanced BMDS Multisensor Fused Track and Discrimination Architecture that will enhance the generation of a Single Integrated Picture of the Battlespace. This Architecture permits enhancement of sensor-to-sensor track correlation handover of objects while characterizing their lethality for later target designation purpos ...

  8. Advanced Signal Processing to Enhance Target Detection & Discrimination In High Countermeasure Environment

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: MDA06T002

    ABSTRACT: Missile defense radars use wideband waveforms along with coherent processing to extract detailed target features and perform high range /Doppler resolution functions. Reduced RCS targets embedded in high clutter (chaff, or chaff-like fuel debris, etc.) environments present significant challenges. Closely spaced objects and decoys accompanying targets of interest inherently increase the c ...

  9. Tantalum-Hafnium-Carbide and Tantalum-Hafnium-Carbonitride Materials for Boost Propulsion Nozzles

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: MDA06T007

    Advanced missile defense interceptors will provide our nation with the capability of defeating threats to our homeland and our deployed troops. However, the fielding of these advanced interceptors is strongly dependent upon technologies that enable production of interceptor boost nozzles capable of surviving extreme temperatures and corrosive environments with minimal erosion. Plasma Processes, ...

  10. Innovative Technologies Supporting Affordable Increases in Power, Efficiency, and Bandwidth for Ballistic Missile Defense System (BMDS) X-Band Radars

    SBC: PHASE IV SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: MDA06T012

    Under this STTR effort, the Phase IV Systems/Auburn University team will leverage Auburn University’s knowledge in applied genetic algorithm optimization algorithms for RF design problems to develop an X-band radiating element with improved mutual coupling and bandwidth compared with conventional printed circuit radiating elements. The design constraints for the genetic algorithm are increased ...
