  1. High-Throughput Manufacturing Methods for Engineered MRI Contrast Agents

    SBC: ADVANCED RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: 9010368R

    This project focuses on developing a magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) contrast agent that may increase the detection of tagged cells by a factor of 10-100. The ability to noninvasively track specifically labeled (tagged) cells, enables a researcher or medical treatment professional to dynamically monitor the delivery and targeted application of medicinal and bio-reactive agents.

  2. A Tool for Building Semantically Interoperable Specification and Standards

    SBC: XSB INC.            Topic: 9010273R

    Standards and specifications are widely used in government and industry to define requirements for products and processes and insure interoperability, safety, and quality of industrial and domestic products. Specifications and standards documents almost always cross-reference other standards and specification. Taken together, the web of interdependent standards forms an immensely important knowled ...

  3. Knowledge-aided Interface for Big Data Streams

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: OSD13LD2

    Big data challenges across Department of Defense (DOD) domains are increasingly problematic for tactical level decision making. Data collections in the open source and military channels are growing at such a staggering rate that it exceeds our ability to store and manage, perform computation and analysis, and maintain data security [1, 2]. Indeed, one author refers to the inability to handle big ...

  4. APU Silencing Technology Development

    SBC: Great Lakes Sound & Vibration, Inc.            Topic: OSD10EP3

    The proposed effort will result in an "universal" fan noise cancellation system for use with high performance fans used extensively in defense applications including auxiliary power unit (APU) applications. Fans are a critical noise source that impact the audible detection range of the platform. The importance of the fan noise for detection continues to increase as other technology improvements ...

  5. FieldOps: A Unified Approach to UGV Interface Design, Sensor Data Compression, and Supervisory Control Based on Fields of Safe Travel

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: OSD13HS3

    This topic addresses the problem of robustly commanding and controlling unmanned ground vehicles operating in complex, unstructured environments. Current approaches to this task rely on dense scene reconstruction from a variety of sensor data such as LIDAR and video imagery. Scene representations are then relayed to a remote human operator who provides commands at varying levels of supervisory con ...

  6. Advanced Heavy Fuel Injection System for UAS/UGS Applications

    SBC: MAINSTREAM ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: OSD13PR1

    This effort is to develop a fast responding, light weight, direct injection system to operate within the fuels ignition delay time for UAS/UGS application. These systems must be applicable to engines that are 200 HP or less, either reciprocating or rotary. A technical challenge associated with the conversion of gasoline engines to heavy fuel (JP-8) is the avoidance of knock. An approach used to ...

  7. TRUST: Testing Robustness of UAS Safety Technology

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: OSD13HS2

    It is understood that an autonomous unmanned air, ground, or sea vehicles can incur a near infinite decision space that is difficult to capture completely in extensive simulation. The response of these vehicles to untrained environments can potentially have unintended consequences to adversely affect safety. This is of particular concern when these vehicles are considered for collaborative manned/ ...

  8. High Efficiency Electric Power Manager for Man-Portable Photovoltaic Systems

    SBC: APECOR CORP            Topic: OSD13EP2

    Renewable energy, specifically photovoltaic, is an attractive technology for man-portable power sources and tactical applications. However, to be effective as a system, it is necessary to have a power manager that can efficiently couple a small solar array (~20W) to a battery such as the BB2590. Power managers are already being fielded with PV sources, but their usefulness has been limited by the ...

  9. Recovery of Rhenium from Superalloy Scrap

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: OSD12T04

    Due to the limited amount of rhenium present in the earths crust (approximately 1-2 part per billion) there is a significant benefit to be realized in recovering for reuse the rhenium from scrap material, spent catalysts, or end-of-life superalloys. Rhenium is found in molybdenum-copper porphyry deposits. If rhenium is present in ore that is processed, it will show up in the resulting molybdenum ...
