  1. Development of a Miniature, Vibro-Mechanical Energy Harvester for Powering Wireless Sensors

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N07178

    A major barrier to the widespread adoption of wireless sensors for structural health monitoring is the requirement to power the network of wireless nodes. Batteries have a limited lifespan, adding significant size, weight, and costs to the wireless sensor network,and may represent a long term environmental problem. Battery maintenance can be eliminated by harvesting energy from the environment. Fo ...

  2. Control Surface Buffet Load Measurement

    SBC: MicroStrain, Inc.            Topic: N091013

    Structural monitoring of Navy aircraft is of critical importance as the fleet ages. One critical area includes the control surfaces, which are subject to intense, dynamic buffet loading which can lead to structural cracking. The highly transient nature of buffet loading makes it difficult to measure using conventional sensors. We propose to solve this problem by combining a network of time-synchro ...

  4. Malaria Diagnostic Methods to Replace Microscopy in Clinical Trials

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: A08118

    QuantaSpec is a world leader in FTIR spectroscopy applied research. The purpose of this project is to develop and validate methods for the rapid automated detection and identification of Plasmodia in thin film blood smears using FTIR micro spectroscopy. Infrared micro spectroscopy can be used to detect even a single infected red blood cell and is not fooled by artifacts that confound visual micr ...

  5. Compact Infrared Polarimeter for Target Tracking in Clutter

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: A16130

    This project will build, calibrate and test a prototype polarimetric imager.The polarimetric imager provides significant advantages over conventional thermal imagery such as: the ability to detect targets that are in thermal equilibrium, track targets in degraded visual environments (smoke, dust, fog), reject clutter, improve image contrast (30X), increase detection range (2-3X), and detect mines ...

  6. Multi-Color Long-wave Infrared (LWIR) Imagers for Infantry Applications

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N191001

    Marines need multispectral imagers to identify hazards while retaining day/night targeting capability. QuantaSpec has already developed a hyperspectral imager that has a small size, weight, power, and cost footprint. QuantaSpec's approach can be further improved to give hyperspectral imaging capability to thermal sights with an additional weight of a few tens of grams over the thermal imager footp ...

  7. Situational Awareness Enhancement System (SAES) for the Dismounted Warrior

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N191042

    Situational Awareness (SA) is critical on the battlefield to maintain warfighter lethality, mobility, and survivability while countering emerging threats. Increased awareness enabled by the rapid delivery of crucial information and enhanced vision through the Situational Awareness Enhancement System (SAES) will allow warfighters to quickly spot possible threats and make timely decisions. This addi ...

  8. Autonomous Hull Grooming Vehicle

    SBC: Greensea Systems, Inc.            Topic: N18AT020

    The objective of this STTR is to develop a highly autonomous hull grooming system that can be operated easily and cost effectively with minimal supervision. The focus of the Phase 1 effort was to design and characterize the navigation system that can provide the required accurate on-hull navigation. The focus of the Phase 2 Base effort is to demonstrate closed loop autonomous control for relative ...
