  1. A Portable Laser Device for Remote Filler Identification

    SBC: AAC International            Topic: DTRA122012

    The proposed SBIR research (Phase I and II) is devoted to developing a laser-based acousto-ultrasonic system for inspection of sealed containers. The system represents a promising technology for improving safety management in anti-terrorism and treaty compliance operations. The system will use a pulsed laser to excite the container and a laser Doppler vibrometer for long stand-off vibratory (ult ...

  3. Model Driven Autonomous System Demonstration and Experimentation Workbench

    SBC: Adept Analytics, LLC            Topic: OSD12AU2

    To achieve high-level strategic goals, DoD elements are investigating the potential of adding autonomy to unmanned assets. An autonomous system must be able to amend its"pre-loaded"plan by rapidly assessing the current situation, examining a number of possible outcomes, initiating a course of action and continuing to reassess its decisions and plan. Currently, data needed for training autonomous m ...

  4. Conformable Thermal Ground Plane

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: DTRA122002

    Miniaturized smart munitions are seeing increasing use across all branches of the Department of Defense (DoD) in order to meet the ever evolving mission needs for the U.S. warfighter. These smart micromuntions have been enabled by advances in capabilities and miniaturization of critical microelectonic and microelectromechanical systems such as sensor, navigational, communications, and triggering ...

  5. Soil-Structure Interaction (SSI) Effects for Fully and Partially Buried Structures

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: DTRA122005

    Protection Engineering Consultants (PEC) proposes to develop a coarse-grain neural network modeling approach for efficient simulation of shock propagation through geological media including soil-structure interaction. In the coarse-grain approach, fast-running computational elements are developed which are an order of magnitude larger than typical FE elements, and the elements are driven by neura ...

  6. Reactive Structural Materials for Enhanced Blasts

    SBC: Matsys Incorporated            Topic: DTRA122008

    MATSYS proposes to develop reactive materials compositions and processing techniques for structural reactive composites for blast enhancement. This effort will combine our unique expertise in instrumented-Hot Isostatic Pressing (HIP) with new approaches in reactive materials design to develop a new generation of cost-efficient and highly reactive materials. The proposed material system will use ...

  7. Remote Sensing of CWAs Using Color Changing Sensor Tags and RFID Detector

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: DTRA102006

    Rapid identification of these warfare modes, particularly Chemical Warfare Agents (CWAs), is vital to protecting U.S. armed forces personnel and their assets. Most quantitative and accurate methods for CWA identification utilize bulky and expensive equipment that require specific technical expertise for data collection and analysis. A major limitation to using existing detection equipment i ...

  8. Design Combined Effects Explosives (CEX) Using Numerical Simulations

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: DTRA122006

    Combustion Research and Flow Technology, Inc. (CRAFT Tech) and Prof. Glumac of the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) have teamed up to provide DTRA with an innovative approach to develop new combined effects explosives (CEX) formulations. CEX represent a class of recently-developed aluminized explosives seeking to provide the performance of both (i) high-energy explosives and (ii) ...

  9. Scalable Single- and Multi-"Boule"Bulk GaN Substrate HVPE Production Tool

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA122001

    GaN-based devices are currently grown on foreign substrates such as SiC and Al2O3, due to the lack of high quality GaN substrates. It is well known that the use of foreign substrates limits device performance due to a high dislocation density in the GaN film. Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) has developed a hybrid HVPE approach to grow high quality GaN device films. In this SBIR proj ...

  10. Optically Covert Detection of Trace WMD Residues

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA122003

    It is challenging to detect CBRN weapons production facilities that are hidden in residential and industrial neighborhoods. Once the weapons are manufactured, they will be sealed and removed from the site of production, so developing techniques to reveal the presence of the weapons will likely be fruitless. In this project, we will develop indicators that can be applied covertly around suspect a ...
