  1. Cyber Reactive Adversary Framework for Training (CRAFT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A19083

    Networks have become a critical battleground for military operations as adversaries become increasingly prolific and proficient at cyber warfare. While adversary threats have grown, training has largely remained focused on infrequent large-scale exercises that provide powerful training experiences, but are expensive and time-consuming. The DoD addresses this gap with the Persistent Cyber Training ...

  2. Small Target 3D Position Tracking in Large Airborne Swarms

    SBC: 3DEO, Inc.            Topic: A18121

    We propose to detect and track each member of a large flock of birds or other flying objects using Geiger-mode 3D imaging lidar. Lidar provides 3D positions of each object at specific times. The depth coordinate enables robust disambiguation of objects whose tracks would appear to cross in 2D camera-based systems. The high measurement rate and extreme sensitivity of Geiger-mode lidar enables safe, ...

  3. Fine Tracking and Aimpoint Maintenance for Phased Array High Energy Lasers

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: A18130

    High Energy Laser (HEL) systems provide many benefits on the battlefield, such as speed of light engagement, precision engagement with limited collateral damage, graduated response (lethal and non-lethal effects), and low cost per shot. Recent developments in phased array HEL technology is enabling the integration of HEL systems on small ground-based platforms. To support these HEL systems, a high ...

  4. Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT)

    SBC: Dignitas Technologies, LLC            Topic: A19013

    We propose to research and develop Flexible and Live Adaptive Training Tools (FLATT) as a flexible user interface capability within a generalized framework that can be applied to a wide variety of training instances. We plan to leverage our Generalized Intelligent Framework for Tutoring (GIFT) toolset because it is a flexible, expandable, service-oriented architecture (SOA)-based system that provi ...

  5. Canine Non-Line of Sight Directional Control System

    SBC: Mantel Technologies            Topic: A19007

    Multi-purpose canines (MPCs) attached to Army Special Operational Forces (ARSOF) units play pivotal roles in small unit tactics as a force multiplier. The ARSOF canine handler’s inability to effectively communicate with the MPC in non-line of sight (non-LOS) scenarios limit ARSOF Soldier maneuverability, survivability, lethality and unit tactical advantage. Current techniques for off-leash direc ...

  6. Narrow Linewidth Silicon Photonics Hybrid Laser with Watt-level Output

    SBC: ANALOG PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A19011

    Analog Photonics' advanced silicon photonics library and phased array technology will be leveraged to create external cavity, narrow linewidth lasers in a master-oscillator power-amplifier configuration. The master oscillator is optimized for low phase noise, stable operation, and mode-hop-free tuning while an array of coherently combined amplifiers will be used to boost the signal to 1W and beyon ...

  7. Monolithic Blocking Microstructure for 1030-1070 nm

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A19015

    Sensors and focal plane arrays at all wavelengths are at risk of damage from high-power laser threats. Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a monolithic nanostructure array for improved laser induced damage threshold (LIDT) over traditional multilayer optical thin films. The unique etching geometry of PSI’s nanostructure will create a high-reflection (HR) band near 1 micron wavelengt ...

  8. Chemical Hydrogen Gas Generator Based on Aluminum Alloy/Water Reaction

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A19022

    Hydrogen gas (H2) has many benefits as an alternative energy source for fossil fuels, including environmental and energy supply benefits. Hydrogen can be used to produce electricity in fuel cells and hydrogen internal combustion engines (hydrogen energy density: ~140 MJ/kg). Producing H2 at the point-of-need is especially attractive to mobile Military operations. The cost of JP-8 when fully burden ...

  9. Automatic Fuel Filtration and Condition Monitoring

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A18136

    Triton will demonstrate the feasibility and maturation of an autonomous and remote fuel agitation and certification approach that is needed to determine the feasibility of executing an autonomous fueling mission with no human-in-the-loop. The Autonomous and Robotic Remote Refueling Point (AR3P) concept is a project addressing the range and on-station time limitations and mission risks faced by cur ...

  10. Slant Path Optical Turbulence and Atmospheric Characterization

    SBC: IERUS TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A19024

    Optical Path Characterization Suite (OPCS) With advanced optical imaging systems aimed at operations in Degraded Visual Environments (DVE) and High Energy Laser (HEL) weapons systems reaching the prototype and test phase of programs there is a gap in the technology available to provide truth data during test. The ability to characterize the atmospheric turbulence and transmission environment durin ...
