  1. Sensitive and Shape-Specific Molecular Identification

    SBC: RYON TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: A11aT017

    The ability to rapidly detect, identify and monitor chemical agents remains a challenge of significant importance to the Armed Forces. Existing chemical sensing techniques have shortcomings that inhibit widespread implementation. To address this situation, Ryon Technologies is developing a portable instrument that is based on Rydberg Fingerprint Spectroscopy (RFS) in combination with mass spectrom ...

  2. Low Cost and Scalable Nano-Silicon Production

    SBC: Systems & Materials Research Corporation            Topic: A12005

    The U.S. Army has a need for cheap, high quality nanosilicon powder. With similar energy density and better aging effects than nanoaluminum, silicon is an excellent candidate for use a metal nanofuel. In Phase I, Systems and Materials Research Corporation (SMRC) demonstrated a scalable method for production of nanosized silicon. By the end of Phase I, we have demonstrated that a 5kg/day production ...

  3. Development of Lightweight, Recyclable Low Cost, Nonwoven Cloth Duck Material

    SBC: NANOSYNTEX            Topic: A12054

    Nylon Duck Cloth (Mil-C-43734 Types 4 & 5) are high strength fabrics that are used commonly by the military for a number of equipage applications. These primarily utilize 500 denier textured nylon yarns with a polyurethane back coating to achieve desired strength. As a result the fabric is very heavy and bulky with a basis weight of over 6 oz/sq.yd. Additionally, the fabric is highly flammable an ...

  4. Innovative Seat Restraint Systems for Troops in Rotorcraft

    SBC: SAFE INC            Topic: A14002

    The objective of this program is to develop a troop restraint system that is easier, more intuitive, and quicker to install than current systems, while providing improved restraint over the current four- and five-point systems. The program consists of a six-month effort to develop critical components of the system and to produce a prototype design. In the four-month option, prototype systems will ...

  5. Corona Discharge Vortex Agglomerator for Improved Separation of Fine Sand/Dust Particles in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A14004

    Sand/dust particles have significant detrimental effects on turbine engine performance and durability. Current inertial particle separators are inadequate to achieve filtration/separation of fine particles. A novel electrostatic method is proposed to improve their efficiency by charging and agglomerating the fine particles. The method is based on a unique application of a low temperature plasma t ...

  6. Novel Bioprocess for Spider Silk Fiber Production

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A14015

    The majority of the US petrochemicals industry is dependent upon petroleum crude or natural gas as raw materials. The excessive dependence on foreign energy resources poses a threat to the energy security of the nation. Materials produced from fossil sources also have a negative impact on the environment. Nylon (Nylon 6 and Nylon 6,6) is a major product of the petrochemical industry. The total Nyl ...

  7. Low-profile VHF-UHF antennas using anisotropic/inhomogeneous MetaFerrites

    SBC: MetaMaterials.LLC            Topic: A14018

    This research is aimed at using MetaFerrite composites to design low profile, octave bandwidth with gain greater than 0 dBi VHF-UHF antennas for Army platforms where size and weight are critically important. The goals of this proposal are to design such an antenna 200-500 MHz band. In 2013, MetaMaterials Inc. researchers demonstrated that their proprietary anisotropic MetaFerrites could be used to ...

  8. Improved Lateral Stability for Unmanned Ground Vehicle Convoys

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A14080

    This work will address the problem of deviations of unmanned vehicle convoy followers by developing a method to estimate the parameters of the disturbances that cause lateral deviations from the desired vehicle trajectory. These parameters will be estimated each time a vehicle passes over a section of terrain. These spatially dependent estimates of the disturbance parameters will then be passed to ...

  9. Human-Robot Performance- Test, Evaluate, Analyze, and Measure (TEAM)

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: OSD141AU3

    Mixed human-robot teams have potential to reduce risk to soldiers during missions while matching or improving performance over human-only teams. Responsibility to achieve mission goals can be shared between humans and robots to improve mission success and operational timeliness. Dynamic shifts of task responsibility between humans and robots during operations can improve resilience to the uncertai ...

  10. Stability Control Improvement and State Detection for Autonomous Vehicles

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A12073

    Existing sensors and algorithms have the potential for protecting Unmanned Ground Vehicles (UGVs) from impending collisions, rollovers, and loss of control and for warning and assisting drivers of manned vehicles of these same potential occurrences. However, more effort is needed to develop, refine, and combine existing methods so they are reliable and run in real-time on real hardware. In this ph ...
