  2. Metal Hydride Preheater for M2 Diesel Burner

    SBC: Advanced Mechanical Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The XA2 gasoline burner is widely used by the military to meet a variety of food preparation and heating requirements in the field. Because of the trend toward an single-fuel Army vehicle fleet and away from gasoline as a general purpose fuel, a diesel/JPS fueled burner is sorely needed. A recently developed catalytic vapor generator together with the proposed metal-hydride preheater should prov ...

  3. Issues of Adaptive Automated Surveys in a Computer Network Environment

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Network surveys hold great promise for information and data gathering, and would allow almost instantaneous access to large and diverse populations. Although there is a mature literature on survey methodology in other media, little is known about how networks might interact with survey processes or impact response accuracy. ALPHATECH proposes to analyze existing survey literature to identify cri ...

  4. Personal Heating System

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    While the benefits of auxiliary heating of the human body when exposed to extremely cold temperatures are well known, there is currently no suitable technology developed to provide body heating in a completely autonomous and mobile system. In Phase I of the proposed program Aspen Systems will investigate the various technologies available to provide auxiliary heating to the body and identify thos ...

  5. Novel Liquid Crystal Thermosets for Barrier Coating Binder Matrices

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To meet the challenge of impermeable barrier coatings for honeycomb composite structures, Aspen Systems, Inc. proposes the program "Novel Liquid Crystal Thermosets for Barrier Coating Binder Matrices". Designed from the molecular level, these new materials are based on room temperature, solventless processable, orderable, low molecular weight, liquid crystalline (mesophasic) structures with flexi ...

  6. Advanced ATC for Tactical Information Processing


    The proposed effort is directed at achieving Automatic Target Cueing (ATC) performance at levels which are essential for near term system deployment. The performance required for deployment is beyond the capability of current systems. The design emphasis is to have robust performance under a full range of operating conditions, and to use techniques which lead to efficient real time implementatio ...

  7. Practical AGC for Quasi Invariant Target Signature


    This Phase I SBIR program is aimed at developing and demonstrating an automated gain control method that reduces the large dynamic range changes that can be observed in target and background signatures, while maximizing the preservation of the information content (such as target features) needed for ATR processing. The ability to reduce the variability in the observed signature will lead to overa ...

  8. Miniature MALDI-TOF Mass Spectrometer

    SBC: Bruker Analytical Systems,            Topic: N/A

    In the proposed project the applicant will explore the development of a miniature MALDI-TOF mass spectrometer which combines for the first time the technologies of continuous flow (CF) MALDI with delayed ion extraction. The phase I studies will determine the compatibility of Bruker's unique CF interface and a recent Bruker invention for further improvements in delayed ion extraction. Experiments ...

  9. A Multi-Parameter Snow Sounding Probe

    SBC: CAPACITEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Assessing mechanical properties of the snow pack is essential to provide ground truth for remote sensing and to predict the propensity of snow to slide and its ability to support platforms. Currently, the most common method to do this assessment is to dig a number of large holes in the field. CAPACITEC thus proposes to develop a field penetration probe for measuring profiles of snow density, wet ...

  10. Modeling Cognitive Effects on Visual Target Acquisition

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design a model of visual target acquisition that can predict human performance in detecting low-contrast targets in complex scenes. This model will build on current state-of-the-art computational models of early human vision and visual search, and use proven cognitive modeling methods (belief networks for situation assessment and expert systems for knowledge-based reasoning) to mode ...
