Reliable Manufacturing of Scandia-doped Tungsten Powders for Thermionic CathodesSBC: NGIMAT, LLC Topic: N15AT010
In this Phase II STTR effort, nGimat will partner with the University of Kentucky (UK) and 3M/Ceradyne to continue development of W-scandate cathode composite materials. Compared to conventional M-type cathodes, these composite scandate nanomaterials will enable longer cathode lifetime by lowering the required operating temperature. nGimat is an established and successful powder manufacturing comp ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
Decision Making under UncertaintySBC: GCAS, Inc. Topic: MDA13T001
Our proposed second order uncertainty (SOU) product is a decision making software solution that addresses the problem of providing accurate and precisely defined decision courses of action (COAs) of complex, time-constrained problems in a fraction of the time required by alternative methods striving to achieve the same level of precision. Complex decision situations can deal with large volume of ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Data Driven Intent Recognition FrameworkSBC: Other Lab Inc. Topic: NSF13599
A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseSpecial Operations Command
Nanocomposite Scandate Tungsten Powder for High Current Density and Long Life Thermionic CathodesSBC: Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. Topic: N15AT010
Vacuum Process Engineering, Inc. (VPE), in collaboration with the University of California, Davis (UC Davis), proposes to develop and quantitatively verify a large scale production process for scandate tungsten nanocomposite powder to be used in high current density and long life cathodes during the Phase II effort. The plan for implementation of the large scale production process at VPE with powd ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
Dim Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking (DTECT) Enhancements for Missile Defense ApplicationsSBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: MDA12T004
Overhead Persistent Infrared (OPIR) platforms observe challenging threat and scene phenomenology. Toyon Research Corporation developed an image processing framework for clutter estimation/suppression and track-before-detect to jointly detect and track targets. The Target Extraction and Conjoint Tracking application, developed under initial Phase II funding and demonstrated using real-world data so ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Revolutionary Airlift InnovationSBC: Logistic Gliders Inc. Topic: ST14B004
We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained EnvironmentsSBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC. Topic: N16AT018
Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (peopleand/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, suchsystems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The acous ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV)SBC: Makai Ocean Engineering, Inc. Topic: N11AT017
Subsequent Phase II Proposal, extension of Phase II contract N00039-12-C-0082. This contract involves the development of an underwater vehicle that can reliably and autonomously interconnect power and data cables to undersea nodes after they have been deployed. The Auto-Docking Autonomous Burial Vehicle (AD-ABV) is a cable-connecting adaptation of Makai’s proven ABV, which has been successfully ...STTR Phase II 2017 Department of DefenseNavy
