  1. Particle Sampling System Designed to Simulate Aging of Aircraft Exhaust Plumes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF06302

    ARI is developing an aircraft exhaust sampling system that transitions condensable species to the condensed phase in a manner that mimics what happens when the exhaust is emitted into the atmosphere. Standard engine-exit plane measurements are not suitable for these volatile particles because they form downstream of the aircraft as the exhaust plume mixes with ambient air and cools. Downstream mea ...

  2. Design and Development of High Performance Carbon Nanostructure based Multicolor Imagers

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04020

    Next generation EO/IR Nanosensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II SBIR Program plans to design, model and develop carbon nanostructures based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include evaluating ...

  3. Modeling Encumbrance Effects of Ground Soldier Systems on Soldier Performance

    SBC: Technology Solutions Experts, Inc.            Topic: A07159

    A wealth of studies involving the effects of army materiel on ground soldier task performance exist, but the flow of data from these studies into ground soldier simulations is slow. Modeling these effects in a ground soldier simulation is important, because it takes into account factors that directly impact the ground soldier. Through continuing research, the Task-related Effects of Encumbrance ...

  4. DC-ATR: Distributed Co-operative ATR Using Low Resolution Mobile Sensors

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: N07T024

    The iRobot team proposes to develop a deployable pedestrian detection module that will analyze a monocular video stream and identify all instances of visible pedestrians. To address the problem of pedestrian detection, we will employ data-driven approaches that help recognize specific appearance and motion patterns generated by moving humans. We will also develop detection algorithms that can leve ...

  5. Portable “no-assembly” wideband antenna for HF broadcast

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A07043

    In this Phase II SBIR Army Program, Physical Sciences Inc. will design, build, and test a novel high-gain, quasi-volumetric, directive antenna array comprising advanced single radiating elements that were demonstrated in Phase I. These single quasi-volumetric elements provide more directive pattern, greater bandwidth, and higher gain than conventional dipole antennas in less than half the linear ...

  6. Proof of Concept Demonstration of a Compact Accelerator

    SBC: Passport Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB072007

    Electron accelerators that produce high duty cycle electron beams with beam energies up to 9 MeV are essential for use in practical Nuclear Resonance Fluorescence and EZ-3DTM imaging technologies. While isotopic identification of shielded materials is now possible via these technologies, it is still necessary to achieve accelerator portability, compactness and reasonable cost of ownership to make ...

  7. Handheld Trace Explosives Sampler

    SBC: Implant Sciences Corporation            Topic: HSB071001

    Non contact trace explosives detection has not been comparable to results obtained from wipe sampling. Many issues, including finding a method to release particles from a surface, efficient particle and vapor transport, and limited particle and vapor trap collection efficiency have all limited the process. Other related issues have included cost of ownership, ease of contamination removal, and com ...

  8. InN-Based Quantum Dot Solar Cells

    SBC: Kopin Corporation            Topic: T301

    The goal of this STTR program is to employ nanostructured materials in an advanced device design to enhance the tolerance of solar cells to extreme environments while maintaining high solar electric power conversion efficiency. By using InN-based quantum dots embedded within a higher band gap GaN barrier material, a larger fraction of the solar spectrum can be harnessed while minimizing the effec ...

  9. Collaborative Knowledge Management for Net-Centric Systems (EVTM: Electronic Virtual Transactive Memory)

    SBC: EVERSITAS, LLC            Topic: N06148

    The resolution of complex and time-sensitive tasks often requires the collaboration among people of diverse knowledge and expertise. Collaborators benefit from each other’s knowledge and expertise by developing a shared understanding of who knows what. These distributed knowledge structures are referred to as “transactive memory systems”. The configuration of modern work groups and organizat ...

  10. Technology for Enhanced Biodiesel Economics

    SBC: K S E INC            Topic: 07NCERP1

    The overall goal of this project is to complete the research and development of an innovative process technology to enhance the economics of biodiesel production, through upgrading the byproduct glycerol to a propane fuel (LPG), which (a) is widely used today, (b) has an existing distribution system, (c) can accommodate the large volumes of byproduct glycerol, and (d) which has attractive economic ...
