  1. 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 ...

  3. Augmented Reality Training for Dismounted Soldiers

    SBC: Chosen Realities LLC            Topic: OSD162004X

    Currently, live training is limited in realism because of costs (e.g., roleplayer manpower, upkeep of MOUTs), safety (e.g., restricted use of battlefield effects), logistics (e.g., unavailability of combined arms assets), and/or local laws (e.g., restricted airspace for aircraft). This project combines low-cost COTS augmented reality (AR) technologies together to overcome these challenges, to vast ...

  7. Fiber Pigtailed On-Chip Mid-infrared Difference Frequency Generation in Silicon

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: 90102

    Omega Optics will develop a fiber-coupled platform in strained silicon-on-sapphire (SoS) for tunable difference frequency generation in midwave infrared (MIR) with tunable continuous wave sources in the near-infrared (NIR). Stress exerted by silicon nitride on underlying silicon induces second-order nonlinear susceptibility. NIR light is coupled into silicon and MWIR light is coupled out of silico ...

  8. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
