  1. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System For Stand Off Chemical Detection


    We propose an Acousto-Optic Tunable Filter (AOTF) Spectropolarimetric Imaging System for Enhanced Standoff Chemical Detection at Long Wave Infrared (LWIR) wavelengths. This work entails development of suitable LWIR material, design of the LWIR AOTF, and design of the hyperspectral imaging sensor using a focal plane array. Currently, there is no technologically mature, commercially available mater ...

  3. Mobile Application for Improved Sleep through Sleep Hygiene Training Feedback

    SBC: Awarables, Inc.            Topic: DHP14003

    The focus of this project is a mobile health application that will support soldiers in improving their sleep quality and performance. The app will be based on standard user interface models to simplify learning and promote healthy sleep behaviors. This will be backed by powerful and effective algorithms that analyze physiologic and behavioral data to produce actionable feedback for the user. Among ...

  4. High Bandwidth, Compact, Wireless, Millimeter Wave Intra-Missile Datalink

    SBC: Technology Service Corporation            Topic: A13053

    Many missile systems use gimbaled sensor platforms for target detection and tracking. These sensors commonly have a significant number of cables to transfer their data to processing electronics elsewhere in the missile body. These cables not only add integration complexity and take up significant volume in the missiles, but can also impede the movement of the gimbal. A promising solution to this p ...

  5. Reciprocity Aware PrOtocols for Radios (RAPOR)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB132004

    Although conventional cryptographic security mechanisms are essential to the overall problem of securing wireless networks, these techniques do not directly leverage the unique properties of the wireless domain to address security threats. In short, traditional approaches leave out the wireless aspect of the wireless network they aim to protect. The properties of the wireless medium are a powerful ...

  6. Protective Helmet Suspension and Retention System


    Maritime Applied Physics Corporation (MAPC) in collaboration with University of Texas at Austin (UTAustin) proposes to develop a suspension pad and retention system for ballistic helmets for the mitigation of blunt and ballistic impact loads using negative stiffness elements. Although various helmet pads are available on the market it is understood that they are not optimized for increased ballist ...

  7. Ad-Hoc Ground Based Counter-Fire System

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N142086

    The Marine Corps is looking for innovative solutions to improve the effectiveness of locating and identifying weapon system Points of Origin (POO) and Points of Impact (POI). At the same time, the Marine Corps wants this system automated on ground vehicles where the subject system will be the secondary or tag-along mission. This capability will drastically reduce the manpower currently required to ...

  8. High Power, Long Endurance MnO2/CFx Battery for Sonobuoys Based on Interpenetrating Conductive Network

    SBC: Nanowise LLC            Topic: N142110

    The need for the United States Navy to maintain a superior global Anti-Submarine Warfare capability is heavily dependent on sonobouys and Navy has identified a need to develop batteries to power sonobuoys which have higher power capabilities than currently used technology. Nanowise LLC proposes to develop a high power MnO2/CFx battery based on interpenetrating conductive network of nanostructures. ...

  9. Military-Specific Tinnitus management and Aural Rehabilitation Therapy (M-START)

    SBC: SICORE TECHNOLOGIES INC.            Topic: DHP14008

    Military personnel are often exposed to high-intensity noises of various types and as a result, some develop hearing loss, tinnitus, or both. To date, there is no standard treatment for tinnitus but sound-based therapies have proven to be promising. Hearing loss is most often treated with hearing aids but rarely is the treatment accompanied by aural rehabilitation therapy to facilitate effective ...

  10. Air Vehicle Communication in a Denied Environment

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: N142095

    The proposed research will lead to a hybrid laser communications and ultra wide band (UWB) radio frequency communication system that will provide the maximum throughput achievable (>>1Gb/s) with novel emerging state-of-the-art technology, while also providing graceful degradtion should laser communications be affected by atmospheric effects. The all-aspect UWB element provides the means to cue the ...
