  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  6. Compact Mobile Light Filament Sensor System

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A06T017

    Digital Fusion and The University of Alabama in Huntsville propose to develop a light filament based sensor system suitable for incorporation in an unmanned-aerial-system (UAS). This sensor system is intended to be useful, e.g., for sensing explosive residue or biotoxins at up to kilometer class distances. It has been demonstrated that white light filaments, which can propagate through the atmosph ...

  7. 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

  8. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...
