  1. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: NLA DIAGNOSTICS LLC            Topic: A12AT013

    "Traditional concrete protective structures encountered by ground forces typically have unconfined compressive strengths of between 3,000 to 6,000 psi. Recent advances in concrete technology have resulted in new concrete materials with compressive strengths of 30,000 psi or greater. No field instrument currently exists that can simultaneously determine the compressive strength, thickness, and re ...

  2. Vibration Enhanced Underground Sensing

    SBC: Vadum, Inc.            Topic: A16AT004

    Vadum and North Carolina State University (NCSU) will develop a Vibration-ENhanced Underground Sensing (VENUS) system that delivers improved target discrimination and classification with reduced False Alarm Rate (FAR) for shallow buried (up to 6) low-metal-content (LMC) landmine detection. This technology excites mechanical vibrations in landmines and uses robust, high-resolution digital signal pr ...

  3. Optimized Geospatial Tool for Ambient Soundscapes

    SBC: Blue Ridge Research And Consulting, LLC            Topic: A16102

    This proposal addresses the need to develop a robust model for biological, geophysical, and anthropogenic ambient sounds in different environments. The spatial and temporal resolution of the sound level mapping tool will improve mission planning for both rural and urban environments. During Phase-I, a geospatial data-based ambient sound model will be developed and exercised for at least three benc ...

  4. Geospatial Sound Modeling for Military and Community Noise Metrics

    SBC: AMBIENT LOGIC, LLC            Topic: A16102

    In Phase I, Ambient Logic will create a Geospatial Sound Model (GSM) that estimates multiple indicators of the background noise across the contiguous United States (CONUS). Given either latitude/longitude coordinates or an address, the GSM will provide the daytime ambient noise spectrum in one-third octave bands, the DNL, and the A-weighted Leq for all 24 hours. Prediction accuracy of these metric ...

  5. Inspection System for Body and Vehicle Ballistic Armor

    SBC: NLA DIAGNOSTICS LLC            Topic: A17035

    Personnel and vehicle ballistic armor can be damaged in handling and use, and by severe ballistic and shock impact. Dropping a ceramic armor plate onto a hard surface, or diving for cover, could fracture the ceramic, cause fiber/matrix damage in the retention layer, or could de-laminate any of the adjacent layers. Adhesive bonds can degrade slowly over time and their integrity is highly dependen ...

  6. Gallium Nitride (GaN) Bi-Directional Battery Isolator Unit

    SBC: GridBridge, Inc            Topic: A15084

    Gridbridge, a developer of advanced grid-based power management systems, will partner with Hamilton-Sunstrand Corporation, a developer of military systems, to develop a bi-directional battery isolator unit (BIU), as a replacement to the currently used manual switch that can connect the ignition system batteries to auxiliary batteries in Army vehicles. The BIU will play a critical role within the E ...

  8. Electronic grade, single crystal or large-grain polycrystalline diamond wafer development.

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A16021

    Kyma Technologies, the leading domestic supplier of single crystal nitride semiconductor substrate materials, and Michigan State University (MSU), a leading developer of electronic grade diamond materials, are teamed together to develop the first domestic supply of large area electronic grade single crystal diamond wafers. The technical approach is based on a novel tiled or mosaic substrate fabric ...

  9. Innovative Low Flow Rate Energy Recovery System

    SBC: 0 Base Design, LLC            Topic: A17089

    The lack of potable water is widespread. The Army has portable seawater reverse osmosis (SWRO) desalination systems, however they are bulky, truck portable, energy expensive, and too large a scale for small unit level or the individual soldier.There is a need for a small scale, man-portableSWRO units. One impediment to creating this is the energy demands for SWRO systems. Large scale systems have ...

  10. Doping and compensation control in AlGaN for high power devices

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: A12AT019

    The overall objective of the proposed work is to achieve a broad range of electrical properties in AlGaN not available today. The primary focus of this work will be enabling technology for low (1019 cm-3) doping concentrations in AlGaN, which are the main obstacles in the development of various new technologies based on this material, the work will benefit also the mid-range of doping concentratio ...
