  1. Daytime Marker

    SBC: JGM ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    Phase I work will combine computer modeling and lab experiments to demonstrate feasibility of a hand-held marker / designator that can generate laser emission at 1064 nm, a wavelength in the 3000 to 4200 nm range, and at a wavelength in the 4400 to 5400 nm range.By improving laser beam quality by a factor of 4 to 16, we will reduce laser output pulse energy requirements by a factor of 10 to 100 at ...

  2. Quantum Cascade Lasers for Multi-Band Daytime Markers

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The prevalence of precision guided munitions has increased dramatically in the previous decades, with estimates showing nearly 90% of munitions will be precision guided by 2020. Of these munitions over 90% are expected to be laser guided. There still exists a challenge in reliably laser designating a target in full daylight conditions. Expanding the current laser designator abilities to these mid- ...

  3. High Power Daytime Marker with Extremely Narrow Divergence

    SBC: Corcoran Engineering, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM173001

    The goal of this project is to develop a power-scalable laser source suitable for laser designation of targets.The main thrust will focus on power scaling of individual laser elements using passive coherent beam combination technology.Scaling the output power of a single laser element beyond a few 100 mW presents a significant challenge as phenomena such as catastrophic optical damage or heat diss ...

  4. On-the-Fly 3D Modeling

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: SOCOM173003

    Systems & Technology Research (STR) proposes to develop automated near real-time 3D reconstruction techniques from narrow field-of-view video imagery for processing on board small unmanned aerial systems.STR will conduct trade studies in Phase I, using our state-of-the-art 3D modeling pipeline, to design a 3D modeling capability that satisfies USSOCOMs requirements and to identify accuracy/efficie ...

  5. Rapid Acquisition Management Platform (RAMP)

    SBC: GURU Technology            Topic: SOCOM18004

    The Government current software development acquisition process takes months or years for technology to reach operational users. The process within the Department of Defense (DoD) is drastically more expensive than available options used in the commercial market space. GURU Technology will demonstrate feasibility of an innovative platform to: 1) drastically lower cost, 2) improve results, 3) signi ...

  6. Improving Human Performance through Neuroenhancement

    SBC: REJUVENATE BIO INC            Topic: SOCOM182002

    Special Operations Forces (SOF) are an integral aspect of the US military. SOF operators are among the most elite and highly qualified individuals in the U.S. military. As such, extraordinary physical and mental demands are placed upon them to excel in extreme environments for extended periods of time. This unrelenting cycle of combat deployments and intense pre-deployment training shortens the fu ...

  7. Real-time Assessment of Antimicrobial Concentrations for Personalized Treatment of Infectious Diseases

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: SB162001

    Antimicrobials typically have narrow windows of safe and effective concentrations. To maintain the correct dose in a patient over time, the level of antimicrobial in the patients blood must be monitored, but there is currently no portable point-of-care device for this purpose. In this Phase II proposal, Nano Terra proposes to further develop and scale up a point-of-care antimicrobial sensor platfo ...

  8. Modeling the effects of non-linear magnetic spin wave dynamics on RF circuits in COMSOL

    SBC: Metamagnetics Inc.            Topic: SB162007

    Metamagnetics proposes to develop a set of computational models that captures the behavior of non-linear microwave magnetic components, such as frequency selective limiters (FSL) and signal to noise enhancers (SNE), and deploy it within COMSOL, a multiphysics equation-based solver. Metamagnetics additionally proposes to utilize outputs from these models to develop and deploy black box circuit bloc ...

  9. Platform for Research Optimization and Creation of Experiments in Social Science (PROCESS)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162003

    Understanding human behavior and social dynamics is critical to inform decision makers, planners, and intelligence analysts about policy options and their possible outcomes. Social science research aims to achieve this understanding by developing theories and models of human behavior and interaction. However, there is currently a chasm between the research and operational communities, making it di ...

  10. Nautical Evaluation of Mammal Observations (NEMO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB162015

    To protect marine mammals from ship strikes and sonar exposure, human watchstanders maintain a tedious and costly visual lookout, which is impossible on unmanned vessels like Sea Hunter. Automated video search avoids human fatigue while detecting surfaced marine mammals, and automated acoustic search detects mammals below the surface, but both approaches have limitations: cameras are affected by o ...
