  1. High tap density and efficient aerosolization of anisotropic particles using dynamic methods

    SBC: IAP RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: A13043

    Airborne obscurants are used to modify electromagnetic wave propagation between a potential target and a posed threat or observer. Current developments in nanoparticle production methods enable precisely engineered obscurants with nanometer level control over particle size and shape. Modeling studies predict an order of magnitude increase over current performance levels with high aspect-ratio (rod ...

  2. Low Cost Fabrication of Armor Protection Systems for Military Tactical Vehicles

    SBC: NEXGEN COMPOSITES, LLC            Topic: A13AT021

    "The U.S. military tactical vehicles currently use a ceramic tile based composite armor system in situations where a lightweight armor system is desired to provide protection against blast fragments and ballistic projectiles while maintaining adequate mobility and survivability. However, the current ceramic tile based composite armor system, which are generally manufactured using Vacuum Assisted R ...

  3. Nano-Enhanced CFRP with Improved Thermal Conductivity

    SBC: Applied Sciences            Topic: A13070

    Composite materials are attractive to the Army for numerous applications in order to reduce weight compared to metallic structures. However, the low thermal conductivity of composites have limited the insertion of composites in applications where poor thermal management threatens critical electronics components. The U.S. Army is seeking advances in composites materials that can enhance the thermal ...

  4. Technologies to Enable Screen Size Independent Software

    SBC: SIMULATION TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A15033

    With the ubiquity of mobile devices and the large disparity in screen sizes it is imperative for applications to be able to adapt to a wide variety of devices and platforms easily and transparently. As such, it is required that to do so there must be an intelligent framework that is powerful enough to coordinate and adapt to these ever changing screen size requirements easily and seamlessly. This ...

  5. Development of a Dual-Band Imaging Polarimeter for Reducing Apache Crew Workload

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15071

    We propose to investigate the benefits of imaging polarimetry in multiple wavebands with the goal to reduce the workload of the Apache crew, focusing on the task load of the gunner. Imaging polarimetry has shown significant advantages under several conditions to outperform standard broadband radiometric imagers in locating targets and suppressing clutter. Multiple wavebands polarimeters have to da ...

  6. High Porosity Ceramic Matrix Composite for Cooling and Drag Reduction

    SBC: THE SENTIENT CORP            Topic: A14007

    Historically, the porosity associated with ceramic matrix composite structures has been viewed as a detriment for many missile applications. The standard practice is to perform several treatment/retreatment processes to reduce the porosity to an acceptable level while increasing the strength of the structure. The processing methods inherent to the production of many composite materials may provide ...

  7. Development of Fidelity Metrics for Image-based Missile Simulation Environments

    SBC: TORCH TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A15005

    Leveraging our extensive experience in Hardware-in-the-loop, Signal Injection, and All Digital Sim-ulations, the Torch Team proposes developing an innovative approach for assessing and estimating the target and background simulation scene fidelity requirements of smart munitions. The Torch Team will define metrics and an analysis processes which aim to match simulation fidelity require-ments with ...

  8. MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Optonicus)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: A15035

    The wireless projection of power to a remote location has been a recognized DoD need for decades, particularly in UAV applications. To meet this need Optonicus proposes the development of an Optical Power Transmission system with Adaptive Beam Shaping (OPT_ABS) . The proposed OPT_ABS system uses transmitted laser power that is generated in a gimbal-mounted adaptive fiber-array laser system compose ...

  9. High-throughput phage isolation using Viral-Tagging and Fluorescence-Activated Cell Sorting

    SBC: GUILD ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A15054

    Bacteriophages (phages), viruses which specifically infect and lyse bacteria, are attractive alternatives to antibiotic therapy as they are naturally occurring, amplify in the host, are inexpensive to produce and display narrow host ranges. This latter aspect is of particular interest to therapy as, unlike broad-spectrum antibiotics which kill the both the pathogen and endogenous bacterial flora, ...

  10. Lightweight Composite Radiation Shielding Panels for Mobile Medical Facilities

    SBC: NEXGEN COMPOSITES, LLC            Topic: A15062

    The US Army DEPMEDS has a need to develop lightweight and durable panels with integrated radiation shielding for CT Scanner Shelters. This will allow the shelter to be located in the main body of the CSH, resulting in improved care for soldiers. The Army needs to shield the shelter without exceeding the overall shelter weight limit of 15,000 lb and at less than 10% cost increase of the shelter sys ...
