  1. Developing an Interoperable Contextual Fusion Platform

    SBC: Ultra-Scan Corporation            Topic: A09075

    The use of contextual information is often a weak, error prone and labor intensive method of identifying and tracking Persons of Interest (POI). Ultra-Scan’s Phase I work successfully applied Neyman-Pearson fusion to weak contextual data, resulting in a powerful new algorithm that fuses discrete contextual data with biometrics in order to significantly improve system accuracy. Ultra-Scan’s alg ...

  2. Automated Manufacturing of Composite Materials including Armament Applications

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A09031

    Automated fiber placement (AFP) of thermoplastic (TP) composite jackets around large caliber gun barrels and railgun cores has enabled a dramatic increase in lethality while meeting aggressive maneuver requirements. Automated Dynamics has played a central role in the development of TP AFP technology and its use for this application. There is a continuing need to improve safety, temperature capab ...

  3. Minority carrier lifetime measurements in Strained Layer Superlattices (SLS)

    SBC: Power Photonic            Topic: A09AT005

    We propose the development of a system for measuring the minority carrier lifetime in strained layer superlattices (SLS). Mid wave infrared (MWIR) and long wave infrared (LWIR) detectors based on SLS technology show promise due to the large and inexpensive focal plane arrays that can be fabricated. The devices are held back though, by excessive dark current, which is related to a poor minority car ...

  5. Improved Field of Regard for Strap Down Semi Active Laser Seekers

    SBC: APPLIED SCIENCE INNOVATIONS, INC            Topic: A08041

    To meet the need of the Army in a semi-active laser seeker with increased field of regard for and narrow instantaneous field of view, Applied Science Innovations, Inc. proposes Phase II development of the Wide-Angle Optical System for Strap-down Seeker (WAOS3 ). Semi-active strap-down seekers in tactical weapons offer improved reliability, reduced weight, and lower cost. However, combining wide fi ...

  6. Point-of-Care Diagnostic for Acute Q Fever using LAMP

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08178

    Q fever, caused by the bacterium Coxiella burnetii, presents with acute symptoms indistinguishable from many other blood infections. Chronic infection, more frequently developing in immunocompromised individuals, presents a high mortality rate (up to 60% of chronic cases) and often requires open-heart surgery to repair substantial valve damage. Q fever can be airborne or tick-borne and is a signif ...

  7. Advanced System Tunability for Infrared (IR) Imagers Using Enhanced User-Controlled Parameters

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: A08101

    This proposal addresses the need for a flexible, high performance, multi-parameter test bed for infrared focal plane arrays. An adaptable brass-board system tat is readily reconfigurable to operate advanced FPAs is proposed. this rugged system permits user controlled, automatic tuning of key optical, electronic and thermal/mechanical parameters which are necessary to evaluate new FPA and readout d ...

  8. Water Toxicity Detection using Genetically Engineered Yeast

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A08174

    The rapid evaluation of drinking water toxicity in the field is a necessity for the safety of our soldiers. To achieve field portability and sensitive screening for identification of toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) a handheld device that is biologically-based and easy to use with components that remain viable for 6 months would be ideal. In Phase I, Agave BioSystems proposed to develop an accura ...
