  1. Alternate GPS Anti-Jam Technology

    SBC: Integrated Solutions for Systems, Inc.            Topic: A18048

    This work details the proposed single antenna eigen decomposition (SAED) algorithm to providing anti-jam protection to single antenna GPS users. The focus of this work was for dismounted soldiers and small size platforms which cannot use more common anti-jam technology, e.g. CRPA antennas, to position in the presence of radio frequency interference. The process in which the proposed algorithm remo ...

  2. Canine Non-Line of Sight Directional Control System

    SBC: Mantel Technologies, Inc.            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 ...

  3. Broadband Simultaneous Transmit and Receive

    SBC: Novaa Ltd            Topic: A19008

    To date, Simultaneous Transmit and Receive (STAR) solutions have primarily relied on a circulator in the RF frontend, paired with digital signal processing (DSP) to suppress the approximately known transmitted signal. These techniques have demonstrated only limited isolation and bandwidth and struggle to remove non-linear harmonics and transmit noise. Moreover, the limited isolation of circulators ...

  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. A Design Tool for Minimizing the Acoustic Signature of Small Rotors

    SBC: DELTA GROUP INTERNATIONAL LLC            Topic: A19019

    An innovative modeling utility is proposed for designing rotor blades for Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS) with reduced acoustic signatures. Emphasis will be placed on modeling the performance and noise characteristics of small propellers and rotors operating at low tip speeds and low Reynolds numbers; typical of the platforms that fall under the Group 1 UAS category defined by the US Department of D ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Brightness Long Wave Quantum Cascade Laser Development

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: A19051

    The development of pulsed Long-Wave Infrared (LWIR) Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) delivering pulse average optical power exceeding 10W in a nearly Gaussian output beam (M2 < 1.3) with wallplug efficiency exceeding 20% is proposed. Pulse width and duty cycle for fully packaged devices to be delivered to Army will be adjustable and their maximum values will exceed 700ns and 7%, respectively. The new ...

  8. Advanced BB-2590 Battery

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A19074

    Batteries have become a necessity in the field of battle. Soldiers often carry over 30 lbs. of batteries to run the required equipment for dismounted missions, and soldier power demands are still growing. Current rechargeable battery solutions (e.g. BB-2590) are heavy and present significant safety challenges upon ballistic impact. New lithium-based cell technologies offer the potential to signifi ...

  9. Advanced Microscale Aluminum Heat Exchanger


    This proposal uses a novel architecture to build a heat exchanger that vehicle heat rejection by 5% while maintaining the same space claim and pressure drop as legacy systems. The novel design results in a substantial decrease in the pressure drop and an increase in thermal performance relative to state-of-the-art configurations. Conventional high volume component production methods will be combin ...

  10. Non-Explosive Non Nuclear Electro-Magnetic Pulse (EMP) Power Supply

    SBC: GOMEZ RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A19081

    An Innovative solution is proposed for the development of a 155mm diameter EMP high voltage power supply without high explosive utilization. The solution uniqueness consists in non-explosive stored charge release in piezopolymeric film-based structures for the generation of high voltage electric pulses, intended for powering HPM munition RF transmitter. The main advantage of the proposed design ov ...
