  1. Anthropometry and Pose Observation using Low-dimensional Latent Optimization (APOLLO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A17064

    The US Army has identified a need for a modular perception system that detects and estimates the shape and pose of casualties in the battlefield. Such a system would enable existing and future unmanned systems to safely perform autonomous casualty extraction and evacuation tasks. Although multiple commercial solutions to pose estimation exist, they often require the use of active sensing technolog ...

  2. Development of Broadband Nanostructured Antireflection Coatings for Improved Infrared Focal Plane Arrays (IRFPA) Performance

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15028

    Theproposed Sequential Phase II SBIR program will focus on the design, development and demonstration of high quality nanostructured antireflection coatings for infrared, ultraviolet detectors and optics. The nanostructured coatings will be deposited on silicon(Si), Germanium (Ge), SiC. and other substrates such as CdZnTe. These high quality antireflection coatings wil be characterized in detail, i ...

  3. Sequential PII- High Speed Characterization of Arena Test Fragments Embedded in Capture Media via 3-D X-ray

    SBC: ZKxKZ, LLC            Topic: A14010

    Quantification of fragments captured in 48-sheet bundles of -inch thick, 4x8 fiberboard during arena testing is expensive and labor-intensive. Technicians now spend thousands of hours finding and recovering fragments, measuring position in three dimensions, then cleaning and weighing each one. Inspecting a single bundle can take 30 hours, at $100/hour. Post-test data collection can exceed $500,000 ...

  4. Wearable Threat Detection System for Opioids

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: A18142

    Opioids are a class of drug compounds that pose lethal threats to the warfighter even in small quantities. However, the rapid identification of opioid intoxication in individuals before the onset of more deleterious and lethal effects remains a foundational gap in clinical diagnosis and sensing technology. Current diagnosis in the field relies almost entirely on buddy aid, leaving a strong need fo ...

  5. Low-Profile Wearable Drug Delivery System for Medical Countermeasures

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: A18143

    All US Armed Forces personnel are trained on using auto-injectors (AIs) such as the ATNAA (Antidote TreatmentNerve Agent Auto-Injector) and CANA (Convulsant Antidote for Nerve Agent) for use against nerve agent poisoning. Although effective, these AIs have many shortcomings, including risk of nerve and bone damage, accidental injection, and are not designed to provide rapid sequential doses or a p ...

  6. Biodegradable Vector Control System

    SBC: MEDENVVET LABORATORIES INC.            Topic: A18144

    MEVLABS will develop a novel vector control device, composed of non-toxic biodegradeable material that can be formed into various containers. The device will be designed to slowly release attractants and toxicants and will be effective on both adult and larvae mosquitoes.The device will be air-deployable or can be hung by hand and will be camouflaged to match the operational environment and incorp ...

  7. MSTDSMultiModal Soldier-Worn Threat Detection System

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: A18119

    Small arms fire is still one of the greatest threats to military personnel on the ground in theater of operation. Existing acoustic body-worn gunfire detection units can provide some protection, but acoustic signals can be unreliable in highly echoic environments such as urban spaces. The single sensor modality systems currently deployed do not provide sufficiently reliable detection and localizat ...

  8. Small Target 3D Position Tracking in Large Airborne Swarms

    SBC: 3DEO, Inc.            Topic: A18121

    We propose to detect and track each member of a large flock of birds or other flying objects using Geiger-mode 3D imaging lidar.Lidar provides 3D positions of each object at specific times.The depth coordinate enables robust disambiguation of objects whose tracks would appear to cross in 2D camera-based systems.The high measurement rate and extreme sensitivity of Geiger-mode lidar enables safe, st ...

  9. Controller Area Network Defense in Depth (CANDID)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A18126

    Cyber attacks continue to be a growing concern for the US Armytanks and other vehicles rely heavily on commercial computer and electronic systems, many of which were not designed with cyber security in mind. One vulnerable protocol is the Controller Area Network (CAN), ubiquitous in military and commercial vehicles. CAN has little built-in security (it has neither confidentiality nor authenticatio ...

  10. A Computational Chemistry Approach to Signature Mechanisms of High Altitude Maneuvering Missiles

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A17124

    Emerging missile threats to Army assets often fly through and maneuver at higher altitudes. In addition, Army interceptors launch from the ground and will likewise need to fly through / maneuver at higher altitudes to engage such threats. The associated changes in flight conditions cause threat and interceptor signatures to change substantially from those usually observed by Army sensors and seeke ...
