  1. Low Cost Pocket Stove Operating on Military Logistics Fuels

    SBC: Altex Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A simple and Low-Cost Pocket Stove (LCPS) concept has been identified by Altex that can be fired on diesel or JP8 fuel. The stove provides 2,000 Btu/hr heating capacity, weighs less than 2 ounces and is projected to cost $3.00. The stove can be used by soldiers to heat water. Also, the concept can be applied to other small heat driven military devices. Under the Phase I feasibility effort, a p ...

  2. Millimeter-Wave Navigation & Reconnaissance Sensor

    SBC: CHANG INDUSTRY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A low-cost, sub-beamwidth resolution 94GHz passive radiometric imager for navigation and reconnaissance is proposed. An innovative array structure with a fast scanning high efficiency antenna will be mounted to a low-flying aircraft. High performance and potentially very low cost heterodyne detection techniques will be used. Analysis of the sensor for navigation purposes has been conducted. Op ...

  3. GeoTIFF 2.0- A JPL Innovative GIS Tool for the Manipulation and Conversion of Multi-Scale Nested Geographic Datasets

    SBC: DUBBS & SEVERINO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Through Army STTR Phase I and Phase II efforts, a flexible image manipulation architecture has been created and fielded based on the GeoTIFF version 1.0 format. This global commercial standard allows the display of vector, raster and matrix datasets in both 2D moving map systems and 3D real time perspective fly-through displays. The architecture is currently fielded in a JSOC Phase III productio ...

  4. Toward the Molecular Imprinting of Nerve Agents: Development of a Detoxifying Towelette

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Human skin exposed to a liquid nerve agent, such as sarin, must be decontaminated immediately (within one minute) to avoid fatality. Intelligent Optical Systems proposes a decontamination towelette containing a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) that mimics the binding characteristics of the enzyme acetylcholinesterase. The cost, shelf life, and storage conditions of a disposable towelette are i ...

  5. Lightning protection for ship topsides fabricated of composite material

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The use of composite materials on the topsides of Navy ships is rapidly increasing sue to efforts to lower and control the ship's Radar Cross Sections (RCS) signature and improve the war-fighting capabilities of the fleet. The introduction of large composite structures greatly increases the threat of lightning induced damage; thus, mitigation of the lightning threat is a necessary requirement. T ...

  6. Databse Conversion Software

    SBC: MULTIGEN-PARADIGM, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Common Databases compatibility across multiple IG platforms is an exceeding difficult task. Historically, every image generator used its own database format, and modeling tools were proprietary and exclusive to the image generator they supported. Compounding the problem is the fact that it is not simply one database that must be shared across different IG platforms, but rather the multiple datab ...

  7. PRINCIPAL COMPONENTS TRANSFORMATION FOR HYPERSPECTRAL DATA COMPRESSION

    SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The principal components transformation will be applied to obtain real-time lossless compression of hyperspectral images, with compression factors of the order of 20-50. A large compression factor will permit UAVs and space borne sensors to gather and store far more data than before. This will not only reduce the operational costs of acquiring hyperspectral imagery drastically but also increasin ...

  8. Advanced Spectral Estimators and Neural Network Systems for Engine Health Monitoring

    SBC: ORINCON            Topic: N/A

    The failure of machine components is expected but difficult to predict. Worst-case turbine engine inspection and maintenance procedures are very expensive, and all parts of a given type must be replaced after a fixed number of hours, regardless of the fatigue and wear that they have experienced. A less restrictive high-fatigue schedule can reduce costs, but may result in a larger number of catastr ...

  9. Superelastic Shape Memory Alloy for seal Applications produced by low pressure plasma spraying

    SBC: PROMET TECH            Topic: N/A

    Recent developments in low pressure plasma spraying (LPPS) show that shape memory alloy (SMA) materials can be successfully created with the plasma spraying process. Thin, near net shape foils (100um thick) were produced using the LPPS method. Using this process no significant change of their transition temperatures (max 5C) in the sprayed and heat treated condition could be found. Tensile stre ...

  10. Blood Processor for Hydroxy Ethyl Starch

    SBC: MISSION MEDICAL            Topic: N/A

    The long-term objective of this research is the development of a closed, sterile, fully automated system for thawing and washing red blood cells that have been frozen with the polymeric cryoprotectant hydroxyethyl starch (HES). The only currently available method for freezing red cells utilizes glycerol at high concentration. Since glycerol penetrates red cells, removing it following thawing creat ...
