  2. Diode Laser-based Biosensor for Detection of Biological Warfare Agents

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The need for simple and practical instrumentation for rapid identification and detection of biological agents has been recognized as an important research area in sensor development. Specific antibody/antigen binding, in conjunction with evanescent wave excited fluorescence sensing, has been applied to the detection of toxins and chemical and biological warfare materials. However, there remains a ...

  3. Staff Training in Information Management for Force XXI

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent cognitive research indicates that military teams operate effectively in high-stress, information-rich environments when they 1) share mental models of the battlefield situation and the team; 2) critique their situation model to develop clear goals for information retrieval; 3) effectively communicate information needs to others; and 4) anticipate and counteract information overload. We pro ...

  4. Interactions of Training and Decision Support: Measuring the Benefits in Trust, Situation Awareness, and Workload

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Inappropriate trust of automation can lead to suboptimal performance, in which the respective capabilities of humans and computers are not effectively exploited. In some cases, over- or under-reliance can lead to catastrophe. The primary objectives of the proposed Phase I work are (1) to develop a systematic general framework for training users of decision aids, with particular attention to the ...

  5. Methods for Pre-Flight Risk Assessment in Army Aviation

    SBC: Decision Science Associates            Topic: N/A

    Decision Science Associates, Inc. (DSA) proposes to design and prototype an automated decision aid for the assessment of pre-flight risk by Army rotorcraft pilots. This aid will support the rapid assessment of risk based on readily available information. Phase I consists of 4 tasks. In Task 1 we will identify sources of information and determine the critical predictive factors and the types of dat ...

  6. Development and Validation of an Exogenous Metabolic Activation System for FETAX

    SBC: STOVER & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Frog Embryo Teratogenesis Assay: Xenopus (FETAX) is a 96-h, whole-embryo bioassay designed to detect potential developmental toxicants. The primary goal of this research is to improve the predictability and increase the overall utility of FETAX as a screen for developmental toxicants that pose a hazard to human health. Since Xenopus laevis embryos lack mixed-fliriction oxidase metabolism (cytoch ...

  7. Low Frequency (LF), Ultra Wideband (UWB), Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR), Antennas Compatible with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV)

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) offer a lower risk and lower cost platform for the use of an Ultra Wide Band (UWE) Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) system for the detection of ground targets concealed by foliage. Given the size, weight, and power restrictions of a UAV, an impulse radar is an attractive radar system alternative because it offers a lighter and lower cost solution than a traditional c ...

  8. Detection of natural, variable objects

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    Detection of natural, variable objects requires general features that can be extracted from any image. Human vision is capable of segmenting images and recognizing objects in radiographs despite the summation of all objects in the inspection volume in the image plane. Thus, the features important in human perception provide a guide for automatic image processing. The initial features selected f ...

  9. Low Temperature Processing of Boron Carbide Cement Composite for Tough, Wear Resistant Structures

    SBC: T P L, INC            Topic: N/A

    Natural materials such as tooth, bone or shell consist of a high volume fraction of ceramic grains coated by thin layers of proteinaceous film. The ceramic grains are grown in situ in a pre-formed organic polymer matrix. The organic portion provides high toughness, while the ceramic component provides stiffness. This unique microstructure allows for mechanical properties superior to man-made ce ...

  10. An Advanced Integrated Electric Wheel Motor and Hydraulic Suspension System for High-Mobility Scout Ground Vehicle

    SBC: NEW GENERATION MOTORS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Military scout vehicles and commercial sports utility vehicles share the common need for advanced suspension/drive systems that offer robustness over widely varying terrain. The ultimate system for handling, ride isolation, and stability control would incorporate high efficiency electric motors independently driving the four wheels, with one on-board high-level computer for controlling the active ...
