  1. Biofilm Remediation for Restoration of Contaminated Army Sites

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Free-phase pollutants are persistent environmental contaminants. Present in situ remediation involving biological/chemical oxidation of trichloroehylene (TCE), perchloroethylene (PCE) and explosives [2,4,6-trinitrotoluene (TNT),hexahydro-1,3,5-trinitro-1,3,5-triazine (RDX)] is limited to diluted plumes. Physical and mechanical removal of free-phase pollutants results in the generation of air pol ...

  2. Mission Payload for Small Urban Robots

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal will address the payloads and the integration issues associated with small unit UGV robot systems defined as systems that could be disassembled and backpacked or hand carried to a forward position. These robots will support dismounted andmounted infantry and will be particularly useful in urban and dense forest terrain that will not be directly addressed by the larger FCS systems. T ...

  3. Bridge Anchorage Systems

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Anchor systems are used to keep military support bridging in place and to withstand the water currents flowing in the wet gap they span. Current anchorage systems use kedge anchors, which are dropped from individual pontoons of the floating bridge to thestreambed, and a combination of overhead lines connected to towers at each shore and guy lines. Experiences at the Sava River at Zupania, Croatia ...

  4. Highly Nonlinear Optical Nano-Networks

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I proposal is to synthesize and characterize supra-nonlinear optical materials in conjunction with nanoparticle networks containing dispersions of highly non-linear optical (NLO) materials. Nematic liquid crystals (LC) dopedwith methyl red, a photoconducting dye, have shown some of the highest NLO responses recorded to date. Nano-dispersing this dye-doped LC should re ...

  5. Design and Characterization of a Two-Bag Blood Products Lyophilization System

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Storage blood bags become vulnerable when they are defrosted. In particular, the U.S. Army has reported many instances of significant loss of blood products from storage bag breakage. Freeze drying of blood products may be considered to be an alternativeto the current practice of cryopreservation. In general this technique is well established and is widely used for the preservation and long ter ...

  6. Embedded Antenna Loops for the VHF-UHF

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The next generation Warrior systems pose a number of challenging problems for communications. In particular, the fast-growing amount of information the individual soldier is required to receive and transmit requires radio and communication systems withincreased performance. This need is complicated by current antennas which impede the mobility of the soldier by protruding from the soldier system ...

  7. Affordable High Performance Composite Armor Encapsulation Technology

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Foster-Miller will demonstrate an innovative method to improve ballistic performance of ceramic armor tiles via its encapsulation with a high strength metal matrix (MMC) composite material. On account of thermal expansion and moduli differential betweenthe MMC encapsulant and the ceramic armor tile, coupled with our ability to tailor an overall composite armor architecture, a substantial predete ...

  8. Hand-Held Chemical Threat Monitor for the Soldier System

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Service infantry and reconnaissance elements have long-standing operational requirements for a field capability to rapidly assess chemical threats, monitor air quality, inspect, examine and in some cases, test systems and materials in forward deployedareas without extensive logistic support. Compact hand-held devices tailored to rapid response are needed to facilitate service infantry and reconnai ...

  9. Self-Deploying Tentage Utilizing Integral Folding Hinge

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Army has multiple needs for mobile structures for temporary deployment of forces. This need has become more critical as regional conflicts are now of primary concern to rapid Army deployment. Personnel must often be housed, in substantial numbers,in adverse areas, for long periods covering both conflicts and extended policing actions. Further, the risk of exposure to chemical and biologic ...

  10. Low Cost Optical Finishing of Transparent Ceramics

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Glass and polymer coatings applied to sapphire or other hard transparent ceramics offer several very low-cost approaches for optical finishing. In Phase I, MSI will investigate (A) polishing the applied coatings, (B) bonding of polished glass faceplates,(C) replicating optically smooth surfaces using polished mandrels, and (D) very thin coatings as applied. The resulting windows will be characte ...
