  1. Spin Compensation for Shaped Charge Liners

    SBC: Corvid Technologies LLC            Topic: A17016

    The U.S. Army has a requirement for a shaped charge warhead that can maintain its penetration capability while spinning. The current solution, a linear fluted liner, is optimal over a narrow band of spin rates compared to the span of rates experienced by a typical spin-stabilized munition over its effective range. To increase performance on target, a solution that is effective over a larger range ...

  2. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Used for Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD171001

    Electro-optical infrared and long wavelength infrared detectors and sensors are increasingly important for the Chemical/Biological Defense community. Solid-state optical cooler materials are in demand for replacing mechanical closed cycle coolers used in current LWIR standoff sensors to achieve cryogenic temperatures. Recent advances in optical cooling of rare-earth doped materials are pointing to ...

  3. Variable Pulsed Parameter Tracking Illuminator Laser

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: A17104

    Tracking illuminator lasers (TILs) have a variety of applications in weapon system engagements including target detection, target identification, pose estimation 3D LIDAR and aim point tracking. A TIL with variable pulse parameters is desired to enable a wide dynamic range of these engagements. NP Photonics proposes to design and develop a laser source capable of producing high energy nanosecond l ...

  4. DNA Origami-based Bio-scavengers for Nerve Agent Sequestration

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: CBD14104

    Parabon NanoLabs has used a multifaceted approach to discover strong interactions between DNA and organophosphate (OP) nerve agents that involved molecular dynamic (MD) simulations, computer aided design (CAD) of specific DNA nanostructures using its proprietary InSequio Design Studio, and laboratory validation of interactions between different DNA constructs and an OP simulant. While the interact ...

  5. Multi-stage Shaped-charge Warheads

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: A17011

    MATSYS proposes to develop and demonstrate warheads capable of perforating light armored vehicles and unmanned aerial systems, coupled with a follow through mechanism that will defeat various targets. Shaped charge liners require explosives to drive the collapse of the liner and subsequent formation of the jet. This is an inherently inefficient process because only 10% of the liner mass is used to ...

  6. Cluster UAS Smart Munition for Missile Deployment

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: A17095

    AVID will build on the Phase I conceptual design; and will refine into a more complete model with design and off-design analysis. The final design will be the basis for a long-range swarm that is capable of delivering multiple explosively formed projectiles to multiple targets. Prototype UAVs and their aeroshells will be developed in Phase II and tested. The deployment system will be analyzed in d ...

  7. Low-Cost Reduced Size, Weight and Power RF Sensor for Short-Range Target Tracking in Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A17103

    TSC is proposing a new software mode for the TEMPR system to be created in order to support the HEL cueing mission. The mode will utilize a pulse-Doppler waveform specially designed for detecting small RCS, low-speed targets in a clutter environment. It will utilize purpose-built association and correlation logic and a Kalman filter-based tracker. The new mode will leverage existing TSC intellectu ...

  8. Computation and fabrication tools for sub-wavelength texturing of visible and IR surfaces

    SBC: Smart Material Solutions, Inc.            Topic: NSF14608

    Large-area, sub-wavelength texturing can convert walls, windows, ceilings, floors, and even vehicles into advanced surfaces that enhance, shield, or manipulate electromagnetic waves. These textures, or “nanopatterns,” enable transformational technologies for warfighter protection and advanced offensive capabilities. Applications include multispectral camouflage, holograms, heads-up displays, a ...

  9. Military Working Dog Hearing Protection/Active Communication System

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A17132

    Vadum will design and demonstrate Hearing Protection and Active Communication (HPAC) system. The HPAC system will provide clear and reliable audio communication from the handler to the canine, and protect canine hearing from loud external sounds. The HPAC system will enhance the capabilities of the working dog and handler team. The headset will preserve canine situational awareness of ambient envi ...

  10. Efficient Prediction of Thermal Stresses and Distortion in Complex Optimized Missile Structures

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: A16104

    In this SBIR work effort TDA’s team is addressing two technical questions: (1) How to reduce the computational cost of simulating powder bed process and estimate distortion and residual stresses? (2) How to optimize the topology of the support structure to improve build quality while reducing the build cost? TDA plans to improve the in-house fully automated thermo-mechanical AM finite element nu ...
