  1. NBC Personnel Cooling Suit

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

    "Aspen Systems proposes to develop a small portable personal cooling system that may be used by the Special Operations Forces with or without NBC protective clothing. The approach proposed will rely on our miniature refrigeration technology previouslydeveloped. Our rotary compressor, developed to provide 300 Watts of cooling will be scaled up to meet the SOCOM requirements of 500 Watts. Technic ...

  2. Tactical Antenna Switching and Positioning System (TASPS)

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The program objective is to design and build an inexpensive lightweight, portable, and sensitive Tactical Antenna Switching and Positioning System for UHF (240 to 320 MHz) SATCOM. It is to be designed to be carried aboard ships, installed at sometimesunpredictable locations, and placed into continuous operation with unattended operation. It is for operation over 225 to 400 MHz 100 watt operatio ...

  3. HF to UHF Camouflaged Antenna

    SBC: ASTRON WIRELESS TECHNOLIGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "Research, design, and build a family of rugged inexpensive tactical antennas for deployed SOF personnel in two versions: one as a tent and the other as camouflage netting. Latest in antenna technologies to design a series of transparent antennas that canreceive HF up to at least UHF (2 to 3000 MHz would cover the full UHF band). Both omni-directional and directional antennas are to be consider ...

  4. Self-Cleaning Dynamic Adhesive Materials

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed research mimics the adhesive strategy of the tokay gecko to produce a novel, dry, self-cleaning dynamically modulated adhesive. A soft mat of artificial hairs allows the adhesive force of the sticky spatulae to be modulated. This facilitateseasy engagement and disengagement with the surface, as well as promoting self-cleaning."

  5. Fracture-Initiated Hybrid Adhesives for Self-Repairing Composites

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    "Novel fracture-initiated resin additives are proposed for fabricating polymer matrix composites with the ability to self-repair after sustaining structural damage. The Phase I objective was to develop an easily processed resin system with strong adhesionto reinforcing fibers, high thermal stability, robust reactivity over a wide temperature range, and the ability to recover mechanical properties ...

  6. Sign Understanding in Support of Autonomous Navigation (SUSAN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Mobile robots currently do not have the ability to detect and read arbitrary signs. Existing work on road sign recognition is template based, limiting the detectable signs to a specific set. This is a major hindrance to mobile robot usability, since theycannot be tasked using directions that are intuitive to humans. It also limits their ability to report their position relative to intuitive landm ...

  7. Improved Information Extraction Using Prior Knowledge to Satisfy Multiple Objectives

    SBC: CREATIVE SCIENCE & SOFTWARE SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    "Existing signal processing algorithms for remote sensing were typically derived, first, by formulating the problem in the contextof one of the following: inverse theory (e.g. integral equations, integral transforms, deconvolution), singular valued decomposition,filter theory, estimation theory, information theory, detection theory, or beamforming; and then, second, by deriving a solution thatme ...

  8. A Web Site Misinformation Detection System

    SBC: CRYSTALIZ, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "The proposed project concerns the design and development of a Web Site MisinformationDetection System for automatically reviewing web sites to identify intentionallymisleading information. In the proposed approach, a relational ontology of website categories and semantic entities is populated by autonomous agents capable ofsearching the web for documents of preselected domains and extracting sema ...

  9. Streaming Multimedia for the Warfighter

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: N/A

    "Military command posts of the future are increasingly likely to be located in or near densely populated urban environments. Due to occluding building and trees, these environments make it impossible for a single sensor to monitor potentially threateningevents over an extended period of time. Therefore, the command post must deploy and efficiently monitor a large number of video cameras in order ...
