  2. Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) Radar Discrimination of Combatants versus Animals in Severe Clutter

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: SB082019

    Advanced GMTI radars provide the capability to detect and track both ground vehicles and dismounted troops both in the open and under foliage. Sources of false alarms for these systems include the detection of animals because of their similar speed of movement and radar cross-section to individual and groups of dismounts. We plan to develop, test and demonstrate the feasibility to provide reliabl ...

  3. Anomaly Detection

    SBC: BLACK RIVER SYSTEMS COMPANY INC            Topic: SB072020

    Recent DoD programs have furthered intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) objectives by advancing the state-of-the-art in sensor resource management and target tracking. The majority of this work, however, has focused upon the problem of tracking a handful of high value targets for lengthy periods. There is a need to develop systems that detect anomalous activities that have the po ...

  5. Development Of Standoff Laser-Induced Thermal (Infrared) Emission (LITE) System For Chemical and Biological Materials

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A09AT022

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has shown great promise for applications in chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) sensing [1-12]. Nearly all previous LIBS experiments were limited to measurements in the UV-VIS and NIR. However, molecules exhibit spectroscopic signatures in the MIR to FIR wavelength region from vibrational and rotational transitions. Therefore, an extension of LIBS t ...

  6. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: SUPERIOR NANOBIOSYSTEMS            Topic: SB082007

    The objective of our proposed effort is to demonstrate the feasibility of an extremely rapid analysis of whole blood samples in non-laboratory environments using MEMS-based fabrication techniques combined with new developments in highly specific antibodies. We believe this technology will enable the realization of a small handheld portable blood analysis system with a quick response time, which w ...

  7. Metal Hydride Energy Source for HALE Aircraft Propulsion

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB082064

    Busek Co. Inc. and the Applied Research Laboratory (ARL) of Pennsylvania State University propose to develop a metal hydride based propulsion system for High Altitude Long Endurance (HALE) aircraft. In Phase I, we will select the most promising propellant combination and design a system around it. We will demonstrate through analysis that the system can meet relevant HALE aircraft goals for powe ...

  8. Robust Wideband Waveforms for Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) and Ground Moving Target Indication (GMTI) Applications

    SBC: C & P Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB082020

    High resolution SAR imaging and Ground moving target indicator (GMTI) radar are of critical value to modern intelligence surveillance and reconnaissance missions. High resolution SAR can be realized at the expense of wide bandwidth waveform. However, to achieve long dwells over a wideband width, often the operating frequency band can overlap with other co-band radars, and it becomes necessary t ...

  9. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: CAE-NET            Topic: ST081001

    The objective of this proposal is to research, develop and characterize Composite materials with the ability to increase blast and fragment protection. In Phase I, CAE-net will conduct research into an integrated network of visco-elastic dampers and stiffeners constructed of materials suitable for use in the environmental, geometric and blast/fragment conditions. CAE-net will develop a methodology ...

  10. Iron Man: Novel Technologies for Autonomous Defense

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A09AT013

    Caldera Pharmaceuticals proposes to develop a highly metal-selective system to maintain iron concentrations in the body at optimal levels to prevent infections. The system will control iron without the loss of other essential micronutrients; loss of micronutrients is the cause of toxicity in most chelation systems. Metal selectivity and the corresponding safety for use is the key difference betwee ...
