  3. Multi-Color Long-wave Infrared (LWIR) Imagers for Infantry Applications

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N191001

    Marines need multispectral imagers to identify hazards while retaining day/night targeting capability. QuantaSpec has already developed a hyperspectral imager that has a small size, weight, power, and cost footprint. QuantaSpec's approach can be further improved to give hyperspectral imaging capability to thermal sights with an additional weight of a few tens of grams over the thermal imager footp ...

  4. Situational Awareness Enhancement System (SAES) for the Dismounted Warrior

    SBC: CREATIVE MICROSYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N191042

    Situational Awareness (SA) is critical on the battlefield to maintain warfighter lethality, mobility, and survivability while countering emerging threats. Increased awareness enabled by the rapid delivery of crucial information and enhanced vision through the Situational Awareness Enhancement System (SAES) will allow warfighters to quickly spot possible threats and make timely decisions. This addi ...

  5. High-Accuracy Angle Generator For Angular Calibrations To Support Optical Metrology Laboratories and Light Source Facilities.

    SBC: VERMONT PHOTONICS TECHNOLOGIES CORP.            Topic: 12a

    Improving our current ability to measure the shape of x-ray focusing mirrors is necessary to advance our knowledge of the atomic structure of many types of materials, especially for the latest diffraction-limited light sources within the DOE. X-ray studies at DOE national laboratories of the atomic structure of new materials, biological molecules, etc. are limited by the quality of the x-ray spot ...

  6. Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload (IPMP)

    SBC: Deep Analytics LLC            Topic: AF18BT009

    With recent programs that enable the airborne launch and recovery of UAVs, there are opportunities to provide aerial threat assessment in difficult to deploy areas. A valuable enhancement to the airborne-deployed UAV system are sensors that detect invisible threats such as chemical, biological, radiological, nuclear, and explosive (CBRNE) weapons. The Intelligent Plume Mapping Payload, proposed by ...

  8. Behind-the-Meter, Distributed Scale CSP System Enabled by Very Low-cost Working Fluid and Thermal Storage

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12f

    In some areas of the USA and Europe, the installed capacity of renewable generation has reached a level at which wholesale energy prices can drop below zero due to overproduction relative to baseload capacity. The value of energy exported to the grid for behind-the-meter (BTM) systems is dropping, with policies in many states now promoting self-consumption of produced energy rather than net-meteri ...

  9. Device to Promote Snow Shedding from PV Panels to Improve Energy Yield and Critical Infrastructure Resilience

    SBC: Norwich Technologies Inc.            Topic: 12d

    Winter storms cause disruptions to transportation, the electrical grid, heating, business operation, emergency management services and on PV solar generation. Large storms can create dangerous, extreme conditions across entire regions and therefore the low-cost recovery of electricity supply and generation is of critical importance. After winter storms, PV arrays can be covered with snow for days ...
