  1. DNA Profiles from Single FIngerprints

    SBC: Independent Forensics of Illinois, LLC            Topic: HSB0151001

    The goal of this project is to develop a validated, commercial quality reagent kit for the reliable collection of fingerprints (i.e., latent ridge impressions) that would subsequently be used for both comparison and DNA profiling. The kit would provide all required materials, reagents, solutions and would include a detailed protocol describing the steps to (i) identify latent ridge impressions (al ...

  3. Environmental Control Unit with Integrated Thermal Storage

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD13EP1

    Military Environmental Control Units (ECUs) represent one of the dominant energy users in forward operating environments, and significant effort is being made to improving overall ECU efficiency [1]. Reducing overall Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) of military ECUs is complicated by the transient, yet predictable, nature of the thermal demand profile over the course of a typical daily usage cycle, ...

  4. Increasing the Specific Power of Epitaxial Lift-Off Solar Cells for Cost-Effective, High-Efficiency, Flexible Photovoltaics

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: OSD13EP3

    Photovoltaics (solar cells) are an attractive technology to provide renewable energy sources for forward operating bases, man-portable power sources, and tactical applications. Solar arrays can provide base power greatly reducing the need for logistical fuels, continuous battery recharging for warfighters on the move, and integrated power sources for remote, autonomous systems, e.g. UAVs. To be ef ...

  5. BLAST: A System for Bandwidth- and Latency-Scalable Teleoperation

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3

    This topic addresses the problem of robustly commanding and controlling unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex, unstructured environments. Current approaches to this task rely on dense scene reconstruction from a variety of sensor data such as LIDAR and video imagery. Scene representations are then relayed to a remote human operator who provides commands at varying levels of supervisory con ...

  6. Stress Testing Robustness to Exceptional Situations in Simulation

    SBC: Edge Case Research, Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU4

    Recent advancements in sensor simulation tools [2] have improved our ability to model radar, lidar, camera, and GPS with software/hardware in the loop. Of course, our ability to model the physics of heavy trucks [3] is quite mature as well. To address the challenge of developing the STE, we will provide our autonomy algorithms as Government Furnished Equipment (GFE). The focus of this topic ...

  7. Advanced Millimeter Wave Security Camera

    SBC: Steel City Optronics, LLC            Topic: 19OATS001

    This project will demonstrate a cost-effective high-speed millimeter wave camera that can image and resolve moving objects from 3 m to 30 m away to enable curb-to-gate screening for airports. Millimeter wave light is often used for security screening because it is safe to use on people and can penetrate packaging, bags, and clothing to identify both metallic and non-metallic objects. The technolog ...

  8. Sensor Processing for Screening at Speed

    SBC: ACCIPITER SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: 18OATS004

    The Apex Screening at Speed program fuses data from multiple sensor technologies and algorithms to detect potential threats in real time. The success of the program hinges on the fusion of data across multiple sensors to provide robust detection with no false negatives and few false positives. Another factor in the architecture of the system is that technology is continually evolving. This require ...
