  1. Development of a Soldier Battlespace Auditory Analyzer System

    SBC: BRUSH MOUNTAIN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A08T019

    The objective of this project is to develop a man wearable auditory analyzer system that can improve the situational awareness, listening capability and communication of a soldier operating in an urban environment. This will be developed through three main technologies: 1. A data collection system consisting of a microphone array embedded on a soldier. Array characterization and diffraction compen ...

  2. A High Throughput Screening Approach Enabling Sustainable Discovery of Novel Lead Compounds from Natural Product Extracts

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A07T034

    Emerging drug resistance in infectious threats poses a health risk for deployed forces. The primary objective of the Phase I effort was to enable the development of a sustainable drug discovery effort to continually generate lead compounds for discovery and derivative synthesis. Successful completion of Phase I demonstrated the utilization of a novel source of lead compounds, validation of two hi ...

  3. Robust Multiple Target Tracking

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: A07T007

    ObjectVideo and University of Southern California propose to develop innovative algorithms for robust and efficient visual tracking. The key issues of multiple target tracking are: variations in target shape and appearance due to camera viewpoint and illumination condition, non-linear target motion, self and inter-occlusion, image noise and distortion, and high scene clutter. We identify four main ...

  4. Straight Vegetable Oil Modification for Combustion

    SBC: LEONARDO TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A08T030

    Current bio-based fuels represent an alternative energy option due to their high energy content, and availability of sources. Biodiesel and straight vegetable oils (SVO) can be used as fuels in a myriad of applications. However, conversion of SVO to biodiesel requires additional resources including water, catalysts, and energy. Direct use of SVO in diesel engine is not entirely feasible without ...

  5. Development of a Novel Chemically Impervious and Breathable Membrane

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: A08T015

    In this Phase I, Materials Modification Inc. will develop a novel breathable membrane liner for use as protection against chemical warfare agents, toxic industrial chemicals, and toxic industrial materials. Traditional protective suit materials such as butyl rubber do not allow permeation of water vapor through the membrane, which can cause overheating and limits the time the suit can be worn. Alt ...

  6. Advanced Vehicle/Terrain Interaction Modeling to Support Power and Energy Analysis


    The overall objective of this project is to develop, validate and verify an universal physics-based vehicle terrain interaction model. The model should be able to account for a variety of soil and vehicle loading (wheel and track) conditions. The purpose of the model is to predict soil and vehicle wheel and track deformations in order to determine the vehicle power and energy requirements. Mode ...

  7. Standoff Remote Triage Sensor Array for Robotic Casualty Extraction Systems

    SBC: PERL RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A07T040

    From anecdotal reports of the United State’s involvement in the Vietnam conflict, it was concluded that the kill rate for medics was substantially higher than that of regular infantrymen. Although to our knowledge quantifiable data do not exist, it seems likely that the situation is similar today for United States soldiers engaged in armed combat in Afghanistan and Iraq. Medics have historically ...

  8. Automatic Identification & Mitigation of Unauthorized Information Leaking from Enterprise Networks

    SBC: INVINCEA LABS, LLC            Topic: OSD08T001

    In this proposed project, we will develop an automatic classifier that examines and mediates all outward-bound network packets to correctly identify the program that generates Internet-facing sessions. By categorically classifying all programs in the enterprise communicating to the Internet, we will be able to automatically identify, locate, and remediate malicious software that may be exfiltratin ...

  9. Application of Critical Thinking to Interpersonal Interactions

    SBC: MirumToo Corporation            Topic: A08T001

    The intent of the proposed research effort is to identify the critical thinking skills that apply particularly to the reasoning and understanding of complex social contexts. The skills set defining this critical thinking capacity would allow soldiers to respond effectively across an array of complex social and interpersonal contexts that increasingly characterize their missions. A second intent ...

  10. STTR Phase I: Engineering Clostritrial Fermentation for Biobutanol Production


    Intellectual Merit: This STTR project will develop novel engineered Clostridia strains for fermentation to economically produce butanol as a biofuel from sugars derived from starchy and lignocellulosic biomass. Butanol is an important industrial solvent and potentially a better transportation fuel than ethanol. Recent rising oil prices and limited petroleum resources have generated high interest i ...
