  1. Fast Line-of-Sight Illumination Calculations for Urban Environments

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A08057

    Model simulations have become increasingly valuable for assessing effectiveness and vulnerability in sensor system development and operations planning. A problem of current and critical interest is the performance of Gen III Night Vision Goggles in the urban environment. The Army’s current operational nighttime illumination model only treats lunar illumination in open terrain. Therefore, a qua ...

  2. Improved Thermal Management Systems using Plastic

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A08153

    The objective of the program is to develop and demonstrate a new lightweight, low-pressure drop, low cost, high heat transfer heat exchanger material for military vehicles. Mezzo Technologies of Baton Rouge, Louisiana designs and manufactures heat exchangers whose design is fundamentally different from traditional compact heat exchangers. This program will focus on developing a plastic heat exch ...

  3. Modular Transit Case Cooler

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A08083

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a modular cooling system for mobile electronics applications. This system will be highly adaptable and have the capability to maintain lower than ambient temperatures in mobile and stationary electronics enclosures that are deployed to hot desert environments. While maintaining these low operating temperatures, the electronics systems will be completely sealed a ...

  4. Advanced Cooling for Satellite Communications On-the-Move Antennas

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A08106

    Aspen Systems Inc. proposes to develop a proprietary antenna cooling system for Satellite Communications on-the-move (SATCOM OTM) applications. This system will replace an existing thermal control unit with a lighter and higher performance system designed to keep the antenna electronics cooler than existing systems and cooler than ambient. The system will consist of a series of heat exchangers i ...

  5. Low Cost Dome Fabrication

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A08037

    The current method for producing dome blanks for multimode optics involves spray drying powders, followed by isopressing around metal mandrels. Yield losses during spray drying, and excess material requirements in the pressing step represent a significant portion of the final part cost. Slurry casting processes represent an alternative to isopressing, and in the case of hemispherical domes, a ...

  6. Conductive Grid Application to Hemispherical Optical Components

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A08035

    Transparent domes for multimode seeker technology are currently being developed. Part of that development involves the integration of a fine metal grid for EMI shielding. The shape of the parent dome and the specific requirements for the width and spacing of the grid lines significantly limit the available methods for fabrication. Photolithography has been successfully utilized to produce this ...

  7. Manufacturing Issues for Multimode Seeker Domes

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A07016

    The U.S. Army's Joint Air to Ground Missile (JAGM) and the Air Force Small Diameter Bomb (SDB) are two potential candidates for insertion of multi-mode seeker missiles technology. Surmet has recently demonstrated proof-of-principle multilayer missile domes for these seekers. But technical challenges remain in scaling the processes to manufacturing level. The amount of touch labor, reproducibility ...

  8. Camouflage Compatible Spatial Repellent Appliqués

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A07155

    Vector borne diseases have posed a significant threat to soldier health in past and present foreign deployments. Currently deployed troops face several severe illnesses such as Leishmaniasis and Sand Fly Fever Virus that are transmitted by insects. There are no prophylactic vaccines available for these diseases. Soldiers must integrate multiple personal protective equipment (PPE) measures to minim ...

  9. Self-Powered Microclimate Cooling System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A08116

    Microclimate cooling is a critical need for soldiers serving in hot climates. Power requirements for conventional cooling approaches can add considerable battery mass to the system, since refrigeration consumes a large amount of power and systems must run for four or more hours without recharge. We propose to develop an innovative, lightweight microclimate cooling system that includes an integra ...

  10. Acoustic, Thermal and Fire Insulation System

    SBC: TECH 21, LLC            Topic: N04221

    To provide low-cost, light-weight, cost-effective insulation system that combines an improved acoustic performance in excess of 40-60 dB with the required thermal, smoke, toxicity and fire barrier performance using mature coating technologies. Our team of acoustic and thermal experts will demonstrate in Phase II that our coating system will exceed the standard acoustic properties of transmission ...
