  1. Design of Robot-Operator Interaction for Disaster Situations

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB12A002

    Currently Unmanned Ground Vehicles are teleoperated, requiring operators to be both vigilant and fully engaged throughout the operation. While increasing the level of autonomy of UGVs potentially reduces both the workload and cognitive load on operators, realizing the promise of autonomy is difficult in deployment. Remote operation of UGVs is subject to unreliable communication and mobility chall ...

  2. Tunable, High-Q Filters for UHF Communications

    SBC: MEMtronics Corporation            Topic: SB12A006

    In today"s dense electromagnetic environment, proper allocation and management of spectrum is an overriding concern for U.S. military forces. The ubiquity of wireless systems places many radiators spectrally or physically near one another, impacting receiver performance through interference or jamming. The dynamic nature of the radio environment prevents precise knowledge of all these interferer ...

  3. Lightweight Public Key Algorithms (PKA) for Low Power Environments

    SBC: Revere Security Corporation            Topic: SB113001

    Revere has conceived a light weight public key algorithm (PKA) named"PASSERINE"that offers a significant improvement in speed, power, footprint, latency and bandwidth when compared with RSA and ECC. On some platforms, we predict PASSERINE will outperform ECC by an order of magnitude in both the footprint and speed of the public key operation. Unlike more conventional PKA solutions, Passerine has ...

  4. Silicon based Millimeter-Wave (MMW) sparse array radiometer receiver for photonic processing

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: SB113003

    The proposed innovation adopts a hybrid electro-optical approach, which combines the best of the electronic and photonic approaches to achieve high sensitivity, high inter-channel stability, and large-scale integration for an integrated mm-wave receiver. Silicon photonics provides the ideal platform for this as it enables the up-conversion of the mm-wave signals from each pixel to telecommunicatio ...

  5. Controlled Burn Using Nanoinfused Insensitive Solid Propellant

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB113004

    Future missile systems will need to be faster, more precise, impact a larger theater of operation, and exhibit improved safety for friendly combatants. There are many technology elements that contribute to the desired level of control. In solid propellants, nanoparticle additives theoretically offer attractive improvements to specific impulse, burn rate, and combustion efficiency which can transla ...

  6. Controlling Antibiotic Resistant or Highly Virulent Pathogens Through Plasmid Curing

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: SB122001

    Group II introns are a novel class of catalytic RNA molecule that are capable of site specific insertion into DNA targets. This property can be reengineered to facilitate site specific DNA integration into a wide range of DNA targets. We intend to exploit this property of group II introns to effect plasmid curing by disrupting critical sequences or proteins responsible for plasmid replication/sp ...

  7. A Vacuum-Actuated Microneedle Patch with Integrated Reservoir (VAMPIRE) for Minimally Invasive Blood Sampling

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SB122003

    Blood comprises a comprehensive compendium of biomolecules that is fully representative of human health; identification of specific biomarkers is useful for diagnosis, prediction, and monitoring of health, in real-time, making it the bio-fluid of choice for analytical applications. However, owing to the broad range of biomolecules in blood (10-log orders), the distribution of very low-level bioma ...

  8. Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) Radar Discrimination of Combatants versus Animals in Severe Clutter

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: SB082019

    During the Phase I program, Mustang engineers collected radar data on dogs, cattle and other animals and compared it to existing human data to find extractable features and begin development of algorithms to discriminate between humans and animals. Phase I resulted in a rudimentary algorithm that can be used to discriminate humans and animals based only on the radar returns. In Phase II we propose ...

  9. Low Cost Radar Receivers

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: SB082005

    Today's lower-cost, smaller weapons require low-cost seekers in increasingly smaller form factors. To this end, Mustang Technology Group is proposing a low-cost digital receiver development aimed at small munitions applications. Based upon our successful line of low-cost RF seeker technologies, this new development will provide the military with an effective, inexpensive seeker for a wide ran ...

  10. Military Freefall Handheld High Altitude High Open (HAHO) Android Application

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: SB102002

    High Altitude High Opening (HAHO) parachute insertions are a clandestine means of delivering soldiers and equipment into hostile territory. HAHO operations involve complex planning and integration of dynamic geographic, meteorological, and tactical data. For example, changes in the wind altitude profile may necessitate last-minute modification of the planned aircraft exit altitude and Designated I ...
