  1. Innovative Rugged High Power RF Sources for Compact RF Warheads

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12062

    This work describes an innovative approach to producing high power RF suitable for use in Directed Energy Weapons, based on a"Frozen Wave Generator"as the RF converter. This technique represents a major improvement over existing state of the art by eliminating the need for multiple light activated custom solid state switches and the associated laser trigger generator. The key item, an ultra-fast s ...

  2. Nano-Enhanced CFRP with Improved Thermal Conductivity

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: A13070

    The Army is seeking to implement composite materials to replace aluminum in missile structures, but the limitations in composite thermal conductivity pose a threat of overheating on the electronics. To solve this problem, Applied Sciences, Inc. (ASI) proposes to develop an advanced carbon nanofiber (CNF) sheetgood capable of increasing the composite thermal conductivity by an order of magnitude w ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Innovative Semi-Active Laser (SAL) Signal Processing Techniques in Noisy Environments

    SBC: Gleason Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: A12084

    This proposed Phase II effort is a continuation of the SBIR Phase I contract (W31P4Q-13-0014) which identified several potential areas of improvement in signal processing for semi-active laser seekers in noisy, dirty-battlefield or countermeasure environments. A list of innovative processing algorithms to address these issues was down-selected to the four highest pay-off innovations: Smart Track ...

  5. Advanced Waveform Design and Signal Processing

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: A13055

    A novel signal/waveform model and signal processing algorithm suite that enhances radar systems performance, in the presence of noise and high clutter environments, and its associated discrimination capabilities is proposed. The algorithm allows for extraction of target information in range, azimuth and elevation angles while achieving very fine resolution and high accuracy. Target information at ...

  6. Nanodielectrics for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: Powdermet, Inc.            Topic: A11119

    Powdermet perceives the Phase I program as a success on the basis of achieving state-of-the-art properties in polymer thin film materials and observation of key phenomenon that will enable even greater gains in the state of the art. The microstructure of the thin films reveal both continued porosity and agglomeration of the nanoparticles, issues that if resolved in the Phase II program will enabl ...

  7. Graphene-Based Electric Double Layer Capacitor

    SBC: JME, Inc.            Topic: A11013

    Our long-term objective is to create a new class of electric double layer capacitors (EDLCs) having electrical performance like aluminum electrolytic capacitors but with smaller size and higher reliability. Restated, we intend to create a smaller and more reliability replacement component that can be broadly used in existing electrolytic capacitor applications. Further, this replacement capacit ...

  8. SAVIE: Situational Awareness Visualization Intelligence Environment

    SBC: THE DESIGN KNOWLEDGE COMPANY            Topic: A13038

    The Military Decision Making Process (MDMP) is a very manual, task-driven process that takes place in an extremely fast-paced, dynamic environment. The greatest challenge to the MDMP is the time outlay associated with gathering and generating known data, at the expense of a commander's decision-making timeline. Based on SME recommendations from an Army Intelligence Officer, we propose the c ...

  9. Non-Lethal Munitions for Defeating Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A13058

    Proposed research will address the phenomenology and develop a technical concept of buried IED defeat through the creation of low-frequency electromagnetic fields in the ground by the LF current injection. The technical concept will be based on creating pulsed low-frequency currents in the ground layer using either explosive or capacitor driven pulsed current source and then employing the key prin ...

  10. Downrange Crosswind Sensor for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: nVision Technology Inc.            Topic: A12103

    Based upon nVision Technology employee's experience developing the DARPA One Shot system and the VALR wind measurement system through another DoD customer, nVision Technology proposes using scintillation-based wind measurement techniques for both passive wind measurement as well as pseudo-profiling along the entire range from the shooter to the target. By modifying existing hardware nVision ...
