  1. High-Speed High-Temperature Silicon Carbide Motor Drive Inverter for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon carbide has long held the promise of founding a new generation of higher-density power electronics and its beneficial characteristics of higher temperature and higher frequency operation have been demonstrated. The question of how to package andapply SiC devices to take best advantage of these beneficial characteristics is largely unanswered. With the recent availability of prototype powe ...

    SBIR Phase I 2001 Department of DefenseArmy


    Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) fuel cells are candidates to fill the Army's need for high-energy lightweight power sources. Methanol is a more convenient fuel source than gaseous hydrogen, but requires advanced membrane materials and alternativeprocessing. SRL with partners Tulane University and Northeastern University has demonstrated Electron-Beam-crosslinked polyphosphazene membranes with ...

  3. Navigation, Scene Understanding, and Situational Awareness for an Unmanned Ground Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this project is to design and implement a system toprovide accurate position and situational awareness for an unmannedground vehicle (UGV). These tasks will be accomplished by a modularsystem where each module will accomplish the functionsof (1)navigation (2) scene understanding and (3) situational awareness. Inorder to accomplish these functions, we will design and develop three ...

  5. Sensor Data Fusion for Target Classification and Identification

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The effectiveness of Non-Cooperative Target Recognition(NCTR) against air targets is limited by a lack of robustness in thefollowing respects: insufficient-fidelity signature simulation;statistically uncharacterizable signature variations; excessivelylargepose-model libraries; excessively large target-type libraries;misclassification of ``novel'' targets; insufficient target-identityresolvability ...

  6. Bandwidth Estimation and Management for Mobile, Wireless Networks

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Bandwidth management in mobile, wireless networks is different and more difficult than in landline networks due to lower data rates, mobility, interference, and channel variability, which makes bandwidth dynamic instead of fixed over time. Furthermore,bandwidth allocations affect more users through increased noise levels or collision interference at neighboring nodes and inefficient bandwidth allo ...

  7. Geolocations with Distributed Signals Intelligence (SIGINT) Sensors

    SBC: Signatron Technology Corp.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will address issues of locating an emitter with unknown waveform, and will assess the potential for improved performance through channel multipath estimation and through the synchronized diversity effect of multiple sensors. Theproposed approach embodies a new algorithm that determines the location of an emitter with enhanced accuracy by combining the data from multiple SIGI ...

  8. Durable, Index Matching, Coatings for Low Cost AlON Finishing

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems proposes a nanoparticle-enhanced polymer coatings approach to significantly reduce the costs associated with polishing and finishing of large area AlON windows. We will develop novel, high refractive index (RI) coatings that will match therefractive indices of aluminum oxynitride (AlON), spinel, and other transparent armor ceramics. This solution-based coating will be able to fill ...

  9. Novel Integrated Materials for Plastic Encapsulated Microcircuits

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The use of plastic-encapsulated microcircuits (PEM's) is one of the new major thrust areas in military electronic component packaging. PEM will potentially replace hermetically-sealed ceramic and metal devices presently used to achieve and maintain highreliability in military use environments. On the proposed Phase I effort, Triton Systems will apply its broad experience in polymeric materials d ...

  10. Lightweight Advanced Composite Mortar Barrels

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Triton Systems Inc. proposes to design, develop the fabrication processes, and to test a full-bore subscale prototype composite 81-mm type M252 mortar barrel, to demonstrate a 30% weight reduction and advantageous thermal management in a full-sized Mortarbarrel. The Army's mission for this lightweight high thermal performance mortar is based on the company level requirement of high firepower, ext ...
