Development of powder bed printing (3DP) for rapid and flexible fabrication of energetic material payloads and munitionsSBC: MAKEL ENGINEERING INC Topic: DTRA16A001
This program will demonstrate how additive manufacturing technologies can be used with reactive and high energy materials to create rapid and flexible fabrication of payload and munitions. Our primary approach to this problem will be to use powder bed binder printing techniques to print reactive structures. The anticipated feedstock will consist of composite particles containing all reactant spe ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Fully Metallic Self-Fragmenting Structural Reactive Materials Using Composites and Alloys Comprised of Aluminum, Lithium, and MagnesiumSBC: Adranos Energetics LLC Topic: DTRA16A002
While aluminum casing materials provide some enhanced performance and thermal loading to explosive ordinance, their overall effectiveness is highly limited by incomplete combustion and long residence times. In order to reduce these problems, the casing material must be designed to facilitate rapid fragmentation through either specialized casing geometries or greatly refined initial particle sizes. ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
SBC: SCIENTIFIC APPLICATIONS & RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC. Topic: DTRA16A004
For effective protection against EMP and HPM threats, it is important to understand the physics of the threats, and also to quantify the effects they have on electrical systems. EMP and HPM vulnerability testing requires delivery of high peak power and electric fields to distant targets. The most practical solution to simulate such environments is to develop a modular, optically-isolated MV-antenn ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Threat Reduction Agency
Infectious Disease Diagnostics and Differentiation of Viral vs. Bacterial Infections for Point of Care ApplicationsSBC: GeneCapture, Inc. Topic: CBD15C001
The modern warfighter faces the constant threat of endemic infections, multi-drug resistant bacteria and Biological Warfare Agents. In order to provide accurate front-line treatment that will curtail the overuse of antibiotics, a rapid and robust moleculaSTTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseOffice for Chemical and Biological Defense
SBC: BAYSPEC, INC. Topic: A16AT012
Using advanced ion optics that was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), BaySpec will develop a prototype of portable mass spectrometer (less than 40 lb. and 300W) with continuous atmospheric pressure inlet that is fully capable of uninterrupted on-line sampling from an ambient environment. The continuous nature of the inlet ensures full compatibility with separation technique ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: Nano Terra, Inc. Topic: A16AT015
Even though nonwovens offer significant cost savings over woven fabrics, nonwovens are mostly used for disposable protective clothing, wipes, filters, and geotextiles. The low adoption rate of nonwovens in reusable garments is due to the difficulty in producing fabrics with a combination of desired properties that mimic woven fabrics. For example, a nonwoven with the drapability and air permeabili ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: Goleta Star LLC Topic: A16AT011
Goleta Star and the University of Florida (UFL) will jointly develop Nadir SAR 3D imaging capability from a Circular SAR orbit that can be transitioned into selected Army applications, primarily existing single-channel radars. Both Goleta and UFL have 3D imaging background and relevant capability that will jointly feed into the desired imaging technology development. In addition Goleta Star has ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: BOSTON FUSION CORP Topic: A16AT013
Boston Fusion Corp. and Arizona State University propose to research and develop Big Open Source Social Science (BOSSS). In BOSSS, we will create a unified approach that combines social and computer science methodologies to collect and interpret big open source data, yielding meaningful focused analysis of selected populations. We will develop a system framework that adaptively learns social behav ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor ArraysSBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc. Topic: A16AT008
Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: AKELA INC Topic: A16AT004
Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseArmy
