  1. A Novel Non-Lethal Effects Device

    SBC: Adroit Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The topic presented in this proposal has direct application to the development of non-lethal devices capable of temporarily incapacitating personnel, controlling crowds, immobilizing small vehicles, and other applications where a controlled amount of acoustic c energy needs to be delivered a a distance. The proposed effort would determine the characteristic acoustic waveforms and amplitudes gener ...

  2. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  3. Neural Network Medical Decision Algorithms for Pre-Hospital Injury Severity and Risk Assessment

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The central focus of the work proposed herein is the application of neural network estimation and classification methodologies to emergency medical care. On the pre-hospital scene, first-aid workers must, often in a matter of seconds with spare information at hand, make critical decisions concerning the yrgency of an injured patient's condition and the type of trauma care required. This decisiona ...

  4. Representing and Analyzing Mental Models

    SBC: COGNITIVE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of the Phase I research is to determine the feasibility of fast and non-obtrusive methods for representing situation knowledge in a naturalistic battlefield environments. A second key goal is to ground the selected methods firmly in cognitive research on knowledge representation and knowledge elicitation. To achieve these goals, we propose four tasks: (1) cognitive analysis ...

  5. Computed Tomography Algorithms for Helical Scanned Data

    SBC: ENSCO Inc            Topic: N/A

    The revolution in digital processor and memory technology is making it feasible to execute Computed Tomography, CT, at much higher rates. Use of multiple fixed sources eliminates the rate limitation of mechanical scanning. The final limit to accurate CT scanning of objects in rapid continuous motion is artifacts produced by different projection planes through the object. Methods of minimizing t ...

  6. Non Toxic Self Lubricating Materials for Automotive Applications

    SBC: Materials Modifications Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The increasing need for materials to possess both environmental compatibility to include safe disposal prerequisites and self-lubricating capabilities that are non-toxic as well as adaptable to green manufacturing processes has led to the resurgence for the development of alternative alloys to exiting toxic materials, specifically lead. As one of the major materials that has been identified for e ...

  7. Integration of Performance Models Into Virtual Prototyping Environment

    SBC: TECHNICAL SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    An opportunity exists for performance models to be integrated into a continuous data flow process receiving data from design tool output and providing results to wargames used for analysis. Design tool outputs an providing results to wargames used for analysis. Design processes specify shape, configuration, materials, function and other required design components to achieve a conceptualized capab ...

  8. Digital Intelligence Situation Mapboard for Enhanced Situation Awareness

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Current battlefield situation displays either lack resolution ir restrict the user's perception to a small segment of the battlefield. Additionally, the plotting of data on these displays is extremely manpower-intensive, consuming valuable personnel resources that could be applied to situation analysis and other important tasks. Trident proposes to design and produce an innovative situation awar ...

  9. SMART SENSORS USING OPTICAL FIBER INTERCONNECTS AND DISTRIBUTED MEMS

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR program would develop practical methods for the interconnection, addressing and control of large numbers of distributed MEMS-based sensing and actuation elements using optical fiber multiplexing techniques. Such interconnected sensor/actuator arrays have immediate and long-term applications in the instrumentation and control of adaptive aircraft, spacecraft and hydrocraft structures, fl ...

  10. Neural Network Limit Avoidance System for Rotorcraft

    SBC: BARRON ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Rotorcraft limit envelopes are complex and difficult for pilot compliance. Exceedances are unsafe and shorten useful life of the aircraft, while piloting that isn't close to limits cannot fully exploit performance capabilities. Accurate, automatic limit-onset prediction/detection would alert the pilot and trigger automatic limit-avoidance control to prevent exceedances. Neural network (NN) tech ...
