  1. Design of Superelastic Nitinol Enhanced Puncture Resistant Armor

    SBC: Garman Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed is an investigation into the use of flexible, extremely strong and tough, superelastic Nitinol shape memory alloy as a means of dramatically improving puncture resistance for personnel body armor. The Nitinol material is proposed as a surface material or coating for reinforcement or organic fiber fabrics and/or composites or aramid and UHMW polyethylene used in the current body armor sys ...

  3. Fullerene Hydrids for High-Density Storage of Hydrogen

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A new form of hydrides: fullerene hydride CnHx is proposed as an innovative approach for high density and safe storage of hydrogen for unmanned undersea vehicles, other submersibles, and for electric land vehicles. Preliminary results indicate that fullerene hydrides, have a significantly improved weight and possibly volumetric density for hydrogen storage over the best metal hydrides. Preliminary ...

  4. Nanostructural Materials Based High Performance Air Separation Adsorbent

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    A nano-sized carbon molecules-fullerene-based adsorbent is proposed for high efficient air separation applications via pressure-swing-adsorption (PSA) process, and developing oxygen separation system for on-board aircraft applications. Research works performed at MER showed that this adsorbent has an exceptionally high oxygen/nitrogen separation factor, more than 3 times that of conventional air ...

  5. Novel Lightweight Materials and Designs to Deflect Bullets for Body Armor and Helmets

    SBC: ATS-MER, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Current standard military armor is designed to stop fragments or bullets. Another concept of protection is through deflection of bullets as compared to today's heavyweight concepts of protection through stopping the bullet. Deflection instead of stopping the bullet could lead to extremely lightweight body armor, extremity armor and helmets for soldiers in standing or prone fighting positions. A ...

  7. Integrated Remote Patient Care System

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

    MicroDexterity Systems was founded by Steve Charles, MD to develop systems for dexterity enhancement for microsurgery; a concept he originated in the mid 80's. Dexterity enhancement is a subset of tele-operation. The MDS mission statement was broadened in 1994 to address the problem of non-ferromagnetic tele-operation for intra-operative magnetic resonance imaging frequently called image guided ...

  8. Nanostructured Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Thermoelectric devices, converting thermal energy into electrical energy or electrical into thermal energy, offer inherent advantages such as reliability, simplicity, flexibility, quietness, and environmental benigness. The efficiency of the thermal/electrical transformation is determined by the figures-of-the-merit ZT of the thermoelectric materials at a given service temperature. Currently-use ...

  9. Rapid Response Sensors for Advanced Control Technologies

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program focuses on developing a novel, low-cost sensor that is ultra-sensitive to emissions from fuel combustors. Commercially available sensors exhibit slow response and poor sensitivity and not suited for dynamic engine control technologies. Nanomaterials Research Corporation (NRC) will develop and demonstrate sensors based on nanostructured materials that are stable, ultra-sensit ...

  10. Low-Power, Non-Invasive Physiological Sensors for Remote Usage

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program focuses on developing low-power sensors that are (1) sensitive, (2) robust, (3) non-invasive, (4) light, and (5) small for remote physiological monitoring. Existing sensors require excessive battery power, are unacceptabley slow in response times, and bulky. Nanomaterials Research Corporation (NRC) will develop and demonstrate sensors based on nanostructured mixed oxides tha ...
