  1. Portable Signal Identification Training


    A unique approach to the problem of portable signal identification training (PSIT) is proposed through the use of an integrated signals database, training software, and the re-use of operator interface software. Two training scenarios are addressed:standalone training mode and transmit training mode. The proposed approach is based entirely on COTS hardware. The approach also minimizes the hardw ...

  2. HF to UHF Camouflaged Antenna

    SBC: AVTEC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avtec views this SOCOM program as an RF systems development program, more than just an antenna development program. The family of antennas developed under this program must work with a wide range of communications systems, and also provide a wide range offunctionality (communications reception and transmission over a broad frequency range with multiple radio systems, provide omni and directional c ...

  3. Hand-held, Standoff Chemical-Biological Hazard Detector

    SBC: CRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Handheld stand-off chemical agent detection is the next step in a line of research dating back 30 years. Technology has advanced to the point where reasonable designs for Infrared Spectrometers to remotely introgate chemical agents from very smallpackages can be considered.The incremental, adaptive engineering to move from man-portable systems to hand-held operation requires careful consideration ...

  4. Nano-Scale Particle Coatings for Service Life Extension of Small Arm Components

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Wear and erosion limit the service life and degrade the performance of weapons used by U. S. Special Operations Forces. Gun barrel coatings to maintain barrel life, overall weapon performance and reduce sustainment costs are required. These new coatingswill conform to environmental initiatives to reduce hexavalent chrome usage. Luna Innovations will develop a complete coating process and system ...

  5. Heterdyne Interferometer for Triggering Gas Puff PRSs

    SBC: HY-Tech Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large X-ray generators using gas fill loads are a key element in the DTRA simulator program. Consistent relative timing between the injection of the gas shell and the generator current pulse is crucial to producing consistent, high-yield x-ray pulses.To that end HY-Tech proposes replacing existing high voltage trigger pin technology, with a sensitive, all fiber-optic heterodyne interferometer ba ...

  6. Small, Low Cost Emitter Geolocation System for use by SOF Personnel


    The geolocater developed under this SBIR will be based on an existing design developed under the DARPA Wolfpack program and adapted for the SOCOM mission. It will be a modular device operating as part of a SOF tool box, and will employ a set of algorithmsthat can be applied to the given emitter type to produce optimum geolocation results. The best algorithm for the situation will be chosen automat ...

  7. Application of wide Band Receiver Architectures to Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) Specific Emitter Identification (SEID)

    SBC: SenSyTech, Inc. Imaging Group            Topic: N/A

    Specific Emitter Identification (SEID) systems have been implemented using narrow hand receivers with fine grained Pulse Repetition Interval (PRI) analysis. The analysis produces a PRI signature on an emitter such that the same emitter is uniquely distinguished from another of the same type, allowing a user to associate an emitter to a specific platform. Using a narrow band tuner for this analys ...

  8. Ultra Low Power SATCOM Transceiver

    SBC: STAR COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Design of an ultra low power satellite transceiver is needed, which is technically innovative in three areas. First, interoperability with non-geostationary satellite systems as well as conventional geostationary systems is proposed, allowing global coverage, very small antenna, large field of view, and near 100% availability even for poorly sited terminals. Second, digital signal processing tec ...

  9. Enhanced Image Capture and Transfer Capability

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    An essential task performed by Special Operations Forces (SOF) is the acquisition and distribution of intelligence information from remote locations. The value of this information for applications such as target identification can be greatly enhanced ifit is augmented by the use of imagery. Digital images captured by SOF personnel at remote locations must be transmitted via satellite link to dec ...

  10. SNAPSHOT: A System for Predicting Human Physical Traits from Sample DNA

    SBC: PARABON NANOLABS, INC.            Topic: DTRA102007

    OBJECTIVE: Develop a Forensic DNA Analysis Kit for Genetic Intelligence that can be used on unknown human DNA samples collected from the battlefield to provide information about the individual who deposited the sample, such as potential ethnicity, height, eye color, hair color, age, sex, and/or facial features. The kit should leverage Short Tandem Repeats (STR), Single Nucleotide Polymorphisms (S ...
