  1. Tactical, Multifuel, Man-Portable Battery Charger

    SBC: Essential Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Thermophotovoltaic (TPV) electrical generation is a technology well-suited to the development of highly efficient, compact, lightweight, and reliable sources of electricity. Tn TPV electrical generation, heat generated by combustion is converted to radiant energy by an emitting surface, then to electrical energy by a photovoltaic (PV) cell. The bandgap of the PV cell is tailored to convert the bul ...

  2. Decision Requirements of Small Units in Urban Warfare

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

    Military Operations in Urban Terrain (MOUT) create new decision-making challenges for small unit leaders. To train small unit leaders to handle these challenges, we need to describe the decision requirements for MOUT: the critical judgments and decisions, the reasons why they are difficult, the types of errors found, and the cues, patterns and strategies used by experienced personnel. These decisi ...

  3. Personal Communications System Voice Terminal (PCSVT)

    SBC: NOVA ENGINEERING, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Warf ighter Information Network (WIN) is an evolving Command, Control Communications, and Computer network composed of communications systems whose roots can be traced back to the commercial sector. The primary WIN charter is to dramatically increase the speed and quantity of information transported throughout the battlespace, while adopting commercial standards to leverage the investment. A ...

  4. Ambulatory Muscle Fatigue Monitor

    SBC: ORBITAL RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    Fatigue is a phenomena that accompanies repeated muscular exertion. The ability of the muscle to produce force is reduced as fatigue occurs. Local muscle fatigue is manifested in electromyography (EMG) signals by a shift in the EMG power spectrum from high to low frequencies. By utilizing this phenomena it is possible to monitor local muscle fatigue in soldiers as they perform mission related tas ...

  5. Non-Invasive, Non-Contact Optrodes for Electrocardiography

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the development of a non-invasive, non-contact optical electrode (optrode) for rapidly determining a person's vital signs at or near the scenes of battlefield trauma. In particular, a sensor is proposed that uses fiber optic and integrated optic technologies for rapid determination of an electrocardiogram (ECG). Heart rate can also be determined from the ECG signal. The ...

  6. High-Impedance, Dry Physiological Recording Optrode

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: N/A

    This proposal addresses the development of a dry, high-impedance electrode for physiological monitoring in operational environments. In particular, a device is proposed that uses optical fiber based voltage sensing technology to provide an optoelectronic interface to standard electrical recording devices. This optical-based-electrode (optrode) can be placed in contact with the skin and record ph ...

  7. A Probability Density Function Model for the Calculation of Scramjet Flowfields

    SBC: TAITECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A proposal for the development of an advanced probability density function (PDF) model for the analysis of scramjet combustion is presented. The effects of turbulence chemistry interactions can have a pronounced effect on the ignition process, particularly for supersonic combustion applications where the residence time for fuel and air mixing is limited. Semi-empirical models have little hope f ...

  8. Innovative Marking Technology for Hand Grenades


    The MK3A2 offensive hand grenade has been out of commission since 1975, leaving warfighters with stun (flash) and fragmentation grenades, which do not have the level of lethality for incapacitating enemy combatants. Efforts have been in the forefront to develop an optimized replacement. The objective of the Topic A181-077 SBIR program is to develop a novel and innovative technology that produces d ...

  9. Data-Converter Integrated Circuit for Proximity Fuze Sensing

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A18009

    In this effort, Voxtel will design and fabricate multiple, highly efficient, digital-to-analog and analog-to-digital data converters integrated into a monolithic integrated circuit (IC) chip. In Phase I, after refining the requirements with U.S. government and other stakeholders, we will conduct a design trade study that includes optimized configurations of the required data-converter blocks. We w ...

  10. Development of a Rapid and Accurate Blood Volume Analyzer for Combat Casualty Care

    SBC: QuantiPort, Inc            Topic: A18122

    Hemorrhage remains the number one cause of death on the battlefield and is a leading cause of preventable death in military and civilian trauma. Rapid identification of clinically significant blood loss and detection of ongoing blood loss are critical combat casualty care requirements. Objective BV determination is a promising diagnostic tool that could accurately direct resuscitation and triage d ...
