  1. Compact Mid-Infrared Laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Significant deficiencies exist in the laser source technology for IRCM, specifically in the limited pulse rep-rate capability, limited average power output and capability to be transitioned to military environments. We propose a novel tandem OPO concept that uses two noncritical phasematched OPO's in KTA and AgGaSe(2) to generate the desired three output wavelength bands simultaneously. This con ...

  2. Representing and Analyzing Mental Models


    The primary objective of the Phase I research is to determine the feasibility of fast and non-obtrusive methods for representing situation knowledge in a naturalistic battlefield environments. A second key goal is to ground the selected methods firmly in cognitive research on knowledge representation and knowledge elicitation. To achieve these goals, we propose four tasks: (1) cognitive analysis ...

  3. A Novel Non-Lethal Effects Device

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The topic presented in this proposal has direct application to the development of non-lethal devices capable of temporarily incapacitating personnel, controlling crowds, immobilizing small vehicles, and other applications where a controlled amount of acoustic c energy needs to be delivered a a distance. The proposed effort would determine the characteristic acoustic waveforms and amplitudes gener ...

  4. Advanced Pressure Infiltration Casting of Thick Section Al Matrix Composites for Armor Applications


    Proposed here is a method by which large area, thick sectioned, whisker and particulate reinforced, aluminum matrix composites may be produced for lightweight armor applications. The first objective of this work is to conduct preliminary process optimization producing reinforced specimens 6" by 6" by 1" thick. Aluminum alloys 5083 and 224.2 will be infiltrated into SiC whiskers, alumina particula ...

  5. Active Suspension Using Preview Information and Model Predictive Control

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of active suspension is to minimize passenger acceleration, suspension travel, and tire deflections. Although the work done in preview control for active suspension has advanced a great deal over the last 27 years since the pioneering work of Bender (1968), several important issues still need to be addressed. These are: 1. Saturation and rate limiting of actuator control inputs, w ...

  6. Micromachined Aersol Collector

    SBC: Corona Catalysis Corp            Topic: N/A

    A micromachined aerosol collection system for biological warfare (BW) agents will be designed, fabricated, and tested. This device can be coupled with a detection technology for use on the traditional battlefield and in counter-terrorism applications. The aerosol collection system we propose to build uses a combination of microelectromechanical and microfluidic technologies capable of trapping a ...

  7. Optimization and Testing of Rotor Optical Data Interface for Helicopters

    SBC: SADDLEBACK AEROSPACE            Topic: N/A

    Currently slip rings are used to transmit data and power across the rotating rotor interface of helicopters. However, slip rings have not proven to be as reliable as desired in these applications. Data dropouts and noisy measurements occur to an unacceptable degree and frequency. In this Phase I exploratory development effort Saddleback Aerospace applies optical communications technology and com ...

  10. Neural Network Medical Decision Algorithms for Pre-Hospital Injury Severity and Risk Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The central focus of the work proposed herein is the application of neural network estimation and classification methodologies to emergency medical care. On the pre-hospital scene, first-aid workers must, often in a matter of seconds with spare information at hand, make critical decisions concerning the yrgency of an injured patient's condition and the type of trauma care required. This decisiona ...
