  1. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System For Stand Off Chemical Detection


    We propose an Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter (AOTF) Spectropolarimetric Imaging System for Enhanced Standoff Chemical Detection at Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) wavelengths. This work entails development of suitable LWIR material, design of the LWIR AOTF, and design of the hyperspectral imaging sensor using a focal plane array. Currently, there is no technologically mature, commercially available mater ...

  2. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Array for Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots


    We propose to develop low cost Long Wavelength Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (LWIR FPAs) using colloidal quantum dots (CQDs) of mercury telluride (HgTe). In Phase I, QDs in the size range of 20-25nm (corresponding to cutoff wavelength of 8 to 12 microns) w...

  3. Regenerable, heat-Abating, humidity-Neutralizing, Carbon diOxide Removal System (RANCOR) Phase II

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: CBD12106

    In Phase I RANCOR successfully demonstrated an innovative enabling humidity control technology to provide very low humidity air to water sensitive, fully reusable CO2 adsorbents. The use of adsorbents enables complete reusability/rechargability and reduces the total heat load on the SCBA to the point where ice or other cooling systems will no longer be required. In Phase II Paragon will introduce ...

  4. Mobile Application for Improved Sleep through Sleep Hygiene Training Feedback

    SBC: Awarables Inc.            Topic: DHP14003

    The focus of this project is a mobile health application that will support soldiers in improving their sleep quality and performance. The app will be based on standard user interface models to simplify learning and promote healthy sleep behaviors. This will be backed by powerful and effective algorithms that analyze physiologic and behavioral data to produce actionable feedback for the user. Among ...

  5. High Bandwidth, Compact, Wireless, Millimeter Wave Intra-Missile Datalink


    Many missile systems use gimbaled sensor platforms for target detection and tracking. These sensors commonly have a significant number of cables to transfer their data to processing electronics elsewhere in the missile body. These cables not only add integration complexity and take up significant volume in the missiles, but can also impede the movement of the gimbal. A promising solution to this p ...

  6. Conformal Onboard Light-weight Durable Passive Low-cost Aquatic Thermal Emission System (COLDPLATES)

    SBC: Paragon Space Development Corporation            Topic: SOCOM14005

    Paragon Space Development Corporation will provide SOCOM with a low-cost, conformal, closed-loop cooling system that is highly resistant to damage and provides superior cooling performance to existing raw water cooling alternatives. This proposed innovation is simple to manufacture, retrofit, and in its final form, is anticipated to entail little to no mass increase over the current system. The c ...

  7. Reciprocity Aware PrOtocols for Radios (RAPOR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB132004

    Although conventional cryptographic security mechanisms are essential to the overall problem of securing wireless networks, these techniques do not directly leverage the unique properties of the wireless domain to address security threats. In short, traditional approaches leave out the wireless aspect of the wireless network they aim to protect. The properties of the wireless medium are a powerful ...

  8. Protective Helmet Suspension and Retention System


    Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC) in collaboration with University of Texas at Austin (UTAustin) proposes to develop a suspension pad and retention system for ballistic helmets for the mitigation of blunt and ballistic impact loads using negative stiffness elements. Although various helmet pads are available on the market it is understood that they are not optimized for increased ballist ...

  9. Ad-Hoc Ground Based Counter-Fire System

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N142086

    The Marine Corps is looking for innovative solutions to improve the effectiveness of locating and identifying weapon system Points of Origin (POO) and Points of Impact (POI). At the same time, the Marine Corps wants this system automated on ground vehicles where the subject system will be the secondary or tag-along mission. This capability will drastically reduce the manpower currently required to ...

  10. Military-Specific Tinnitus management and Aural Rehabilitation Therapy (M-START)

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: DHP14008

    Military personnel are often exposed to high-intensity noises of various types and as a result, some develop hearing loss, tinnitus, or both. To date, there is no standard treatment for tinnitus but sound-based therapies have proven to be promising. Hearing loss is most often treated with hearing aids but rarely is the treatment accompanied by aural rehabilitation therapy to facilitate effective ...
