  2. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Bio-Thermal Response

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT:Radio-frequency (RF) transmitting devices are found nearly everywhere today, ranging from lower-power cell phones to radar equipment to high-energy weapons systems. Accidental exposure of humans to the RF radiation emanating from these devices can cause harmful thermal effects including tissue damage or death. Modeling these thermal effects across a whole population of humans is difficult ...

  3. Ricin Toxin Protective Monoclonal Antibodies with Improved Serum Half-Life

    SBC: MAPP BIOPHARMACEUTICAL, INC.            Topic: A14044

    Ricin is a category B toxin due to its ease of acquisition, dissemination, and the high potential for morbidity and mortality after exposure. There are currently no methods of preventing or treating ricin exposurethis represents a major unmet need for protection of civilians and warfighters. Because of their excellent safety profile and efficacy, mAbs are a rapidly growing class of therapeutic dru ...

  4. Scalable One-Panel LCoS System for 4k2k and 8k4k Resolutions

    SBC: Silicon Micro Display, Inc.            Topic: AF131017

    ABSTRACT:For the next generation of wide field-of-view (FOV) helmet-mounted displays (HMDs) and virtual simulators that satisfy the 20/20 visual acuity requirement, a microdisplay and drive circuitry subsystem solution with commensurate resolution is needed. To address this need, a compact control board system with 2 outputs of 1080p resolution was successfully developed and utilized in Phase I to ...

  5. Holographic Video Display Using Novel Guided-wave Scanning System

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF131023

    ABSTRACT:Todays analysts need improved 3D visualization tools to assist in critical situations such as deconfliction, line-of-sight analysis, air space and satellite control.Currently available 3D displays cannot provide the level of detail and comfort needed because the displays contain unacceptable visual artifacts, do not provide full parallax, require special headgear, and induce nausea in man ...

  6. Retrofittable Tactical Head Up Display (RTHUD)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF131027

    ABSTRACT:Currently tactical Head up Displays (HUD) are expensive both in cost of acquisition and Life Cycle Cost terms. In addition, retrofit of a more capable HUD into an existing airframe is complex and the bulk of the HUD competes with other display systems for valuable cockpit volume. The objective of this program is to verify the practicability of a new approach to the HUD architecture that w ...

  9. Electroplated Alloys for Replacement of Hard Chrome on Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Electrolytic Hard Chrome (ECH) is the standard coating method for 4XXX steels used in actuators and depot-based repair of damaged items. The properties of EHC coatings are excellent, and as a result EHC coatings have been used for more than 50 years. Unfortunately, EHC plating uses hexavalent chromium (Cr6+) that is regulated by both OSHA and the EPA. Health and environmental concern ...

  10. Surface Treatments for Stainless Steel Actuators

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: AF131202

    ABSTRACT: Stainless steel ballscrew components, such as those found in landing gear and flap actuators on the C-130 aircraft, experience wear and subsequent failure due to corrosion, contamination and foreign object damage (FOD). High"dither"conditions, where the actuator undergoes a constant short-travel, high-frequency movement to maintain level flight, can also induce wear on actuator ballscr ...
