  1. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  2. Using the Conditional Moment Closure Method to Assess the Effects of Turbulence Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: A16AT001

    The ability to accurately design and predict the performance of combustion-based machinery like gas turbine engines is important in improving their performance, increasing their fuel economy, lowering operating costs, and decreasing pollutant emissions. Almost all of the flows are turbulent in industrial combustion applications, therefore understanding the interaction between turbulence and combu ...

  3. Vibration-Enhanced Sensing of Buried Landmines

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    Vadum will develop a vibration-enhanced detection and sensing system to identify buried landmines by exciting mechanical vibrations that are detectable using a sensitive radio-frequency (RF) ground-penetrating vibrometer. The system will induce vibrations in the target electromagnetically, stimulating specific modes that distinguish mines from other metal clutter. An innovative RF vibrometer per ...

  4. Runnable Environment for Plug And Scrape Technology (REPAST)

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: A16AT006

    Modus Operandi and IHMC propose a Runnable Environment for Plug and Scrape (P&S) Technology (REPAST) for plugging in to social networks. REPAST consists of a P&S device enabling soldiers to perform mobile data analysis. The innovative device lets users carry and configure analytic tools as they travel between locations. Users plug the device into an existing computer system and resume a personal c ...

  5. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: A16AT009

    This proposal describes a comprehensive effort to develop the required epitaxial materials technologies to support the development and commercialization of next generation, epitaxially grown, engineered III-V LWIR detectors that achieve performance equivalent to much higher cost II-VI detectors. Our team proposes a unique and innovative approach which utilizes MOCVD growth of metamorphic buffer la ...

  6. Tactical Immune System based on Dynamically Assigned Sense of Self

    SBC: CYBERROCK INC.            Topic: A16AT010

    Inspired by the self-nonself discrimination in our natural immune system, we propose to develop the first practical immune system that will provide unprecedented real-time protection for identified tactical platforms and networks in ARMY's Common Operating Environment (COE). Unlike previous models of self which are passive reflection of the exiting being of the protected program or system, our mod ...

  7. A Tomographic Approach for Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR) Imaging

    SBC: Brilligent Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A16AT011

    The team proposes a 3D SAR algorithm based on the principles of radar tomography, which allows for transmitters and receivers to be arbitrarily located in a 3D volume. Data is collected and the output is a complete true 3D image of the reflectivity scene. The tomographic SAR provides detailed features on both horizontal (e.g., flat terrain) and vertical (e.g., building or canyons). With a proper ...

  8. Beliefs, Values, Interests and Practices of Identities, Networks, Groups for Planning & Analysis

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A16AT013

    The intelligence community still cannot satisfactorily answer critical fundamental preparation, planning, and execution questions about the environment in which US and allied forces operate and the people they seek to persuade. There is a vast amount of information, almost all of it unclassified, which characterizes population identities and interrelationships in terms of beliefs, values, interest ...

  9. Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A14AT014

    Cornerstone Research Group, Inc. (CRG) has developed a solid Ceramic Polymer Composite Electrolyte (CPCE) for metal-air power sources. The existing electrolyte solutions favor ionic conductivity at the sacrifice of mechanical performance resulting in metal-air batteries that are fragile and unpractical for portable applications. In Phase I, CRG developed a solid CPCE by combining superionic conduc ...

  10. Ultrafast Physical Random Number Generation Using Chaos

    SBC: Torch Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A14AT002

    Random numbers are essential for a growing number of modern applications. As computer speed and communications bandwidth have increased the potential for practical streaming cipher and large-scale Monte Carlo simulations have become technologically feasible. For these and other applications, ultrafast random number generators are essential. This is intuitively clear. Additionally, however, the ide ...
