  1. Fuel Efficient Nanofluid Gear Oil

    SBC: Pixelligent Technologies, LLC            Topic: A15AT018

    Improving vehicle fuel efficiency for the military can significantly reduce costs and reduce risk to solider safety. One way to improve vehicle efficiency for new and legacy vehicles is to reduce frictional loses in the drivetrain through use of lower viscosity lubricants. However, this comes with the risk of reducing durability of drivetrain components through increased wear, pitting and scuffing ...

  2. GMTI Radar Target Classification Using Spectral and Tracking Data


    TSC will develop Human, Vehicle, Animal and Clutter (HVAC) discrimination algorithms for use in GMTI radars by leveraging research performed on previous DARPA efforts and an ongoing Army program. TSC will focus on the challenging UHF radar problem and develop multiple-CPI processing algorithms in Phase I for application to Army airborne foliage penetration surveillance systems and ground-based UHF ...

  3. Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR)


    NadirSAR offers high-resolution imaging of targets, lines of communication, and buildings in urban canyons, rough terrain and light foliage areas. This capability can bridge the gap between down-looking LIDAR sensors and side-looking microwave and foliage penetrating UHF SAR systems such as TRACER. In a previous effort for RRTO, TSC and SDL experimentally demonstrated the feasibility of X-band Nad ...

  4. Development of a Military Hardened Expeditionary, Energy Efficient and Waterless/Low-Flow Laundry System

    SBC: Moniteq, Inc.            Topic: A17072

    A reduced water flow/low energy consumption laundry system is proposed. The system will use advanced oxidation processing (AOP) coupled with ultrasound assisted conventional laundering. The design will permit disinfection in cold water washing with corresponding energy savings. It will also include a recycled system to reuse 80% of the water. The system will be designed to be self contained and fi ...

  5. Methods for Determining Threat Level and Intent of Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: Saze Technologies, LLC            Topic: A17015

    Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) poses a growing threat to our national security. Commercially available UASs can now carry explosives, and perform electronic surveillance missions with an increasing range against our military, cities, infrastructure, population and information. Swarm attacks are possible by automated drones and dirty bombs can be dropped in populated areas.Due to the ease of small ...

  7. VLAD (Vehicle Localization Augmentation for DIsmounts)

    SBC: Robotic Research LLC            Topic: A17AT017

    The goal of the proposed work is to create a suite of sensor processing algorithms and techniques that will result in the dismount localization system initializing and maintaining a good result while riding in a vehicle. The result of such a goal is that a user will be able to seamlessly exit the vehicle and perform their mission, all while still maintaining a high accuracy localization solution. ...

  8. Adaptive Armor Actuator Mechanisms

    SBC: INNOVITAL SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A17115

    Conventional vehicle armor has evolved considerably over the years, including homogeneous plates, composite materials, and reactive substrates.Variable orientations have also been implemented, including curved, sloped, angled, and spaced plates.A common characteristic among these conventional armor solutions is that they are static and incapable of changing in response to local threats.Adding a me ...

  9. Multi-jet Warhead to Defeat Specialized Targets

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: A17011

    This research considers innovative technologies to attack and defeat specialized targets and materiel within structures. The goal is to use high levels of explosive energy in the form of shaped charge warheads to generate high temperature environments, and to accelerate lethal fragments and jets against structures, to breach such structures and deposit lethal energy inside the interior against ele ...

  10. ORION: Operational Robot with Intelligent Off-road Navigation

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A17AT019

    For operational robots to be truly effective in the battlefield, they would need to be integrated with intelligent decision-making capabilities. In particular, the following capabilities would help them to deal with the challenging real-world problems of off-road navigation, namely, traversability assessment (Capability 1), optimal trajectory computation (Capability 2), and optimal maneuver select ...
