  1. Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared Sensing

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: A12aT023

    SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film lithium tantalate (TFLT) pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low cost, size, weight and power (SWaP) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements will be integrated into the TFLT pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, w ...

  3. Social Media Analysis and Reasoning Tool (SMART)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A12aT009

    The proliferation of social media technologies has provided a promising new source of information for intelligence analysts. Effective use of this data could provide insight into the evolution of social networks, identification of communication patterns that lead to events of interest, and analysis of relevant socio-cultural factors and trends. However, intelligence analysts frequently have diffic ...

  4. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION INC            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  5. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12aT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify large aquatic animals. The proposed high frequency imaging active sonar system is configurable to detect, track, classify, and alert to the presence of threatened and endang ...

  6. LITE Spectrometer for surface bound CBE Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09AT022

    A stand-off mid-IR based system offers great promise for the detection of chemical, biological or explosive (CBE) agents. Such a system has yet to be realized due mostly to broad spectral features and interfering substances. In this proposal we will demonstrate the feasibility of a system that collects laser induced thermal emission (LITE) from a substance and identifies it as known CBE agent with ...

  7. MEMS based thermopile infrared detector array for chemical and biological sensing

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A10AT004

    Thermopile arrays manufactured using integrated process compatible materials and micro-machining will provide high performance with low manufacturing cost. Black Forest Engineering (BFE) teamed with Case Western Reserve University will design thermopiles using silicon based semiconductors and compare performance. Low cost thermopiles, differentially coupled with advanced BFE CMOS readout, will pr ...

  8. Monocular Unmanned Leader-Follower (MULE-F) System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A10AT030

    The Army has a clear need for a small unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) capable of autonomously accompanying a single soldier or vehicle. Such a UGV would help solve both logistical problems of soldiers needing to transport more equipment and supplies than they can carry in a backpack, and tactical problems of scouting unsafe areas. Multiple designs for such UGVs exist; however, they require active re ...

  9. A Near Autonomous Combat Casualty Extraction Robotic System

    SBC: Hstar Technologies            Topic: A10AT028

    Hstar proposes a near autonomous combat casualty extraction robot (c2Exbot) system that: 1) supports autonomous dexterous manipulation, safe patient lifting and near autonomous navigation control, 2) utilizes a supervisory telepresence operation mechanism, 3) provides near autonomous patient diagnosis, injury assessment and emergency treatment, and d) provides semi-autonomous patient monitoring an ...

  10. Narrowband microbolometer arrays for infrared chemical sensing

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A10AT023

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research program will develop narrow band plasmonic resonant cavity filters with integrated microbolometer sensors operating in the long wave infrared (LWIR) atmospheric transmission band for IR absorption measurements of low concentration chemicals. IR spectroscopy can identify a wide range of contaminants, including chemical/biological warfare agents, exp ...
