Title:Inflatable Casualty Retrieval Device
Abstract:The construction of an inflatable robotic tether unit that will allow retrieval of field casualties is proposed. The unit can be teleoperated by the retrieval personnel to grapple objects or casualties at a distance while storing storage in a very compact form. The inflatable tether will require a very small storage volume, so that one or two units can be carried by the retrieval personnel. Other units can be deployed from secure point or vehicles. When deployed, each unit will have a sensorized end-effector for grappling, including camera, force tranducers, proximity sensors, and accelerometers. The experimental design proposed in Phase I is planned to prove the controllability of such inflatable structures in retrieval applications.

Title:Snatch-Combat Casualty Recovery Device
Abstract:Foster-Miller has leveraged its technological leadership in personnel entanglement via an IR&D program and applied it to the "Snatch" Combat Casualty recovery Device (CCRD). The same team that has invented, developed and manufactured the Grab-NET family of non-lethal weapons systems has already been working on the CCRD through IR&D efforts. We have designed, built and successfully tested all of the critical components of the CCRD system. "Snatch" is lightweight, compact, reusable, and self contained and meets all of the requirements of the RFP. Our design is an adaptation of our Grab-NET system, using a reusable/re-loadable hand-tossed or gun launched tethered net. The "Snatch" concept is as follows: the net package is deployed by throwing/dropping/shooting the unit across the victim. The system is self-righting and upon command a pyrotechnic device pops the package up and opens the net. A tether attached to the lasso arrangement is used to pull the victim to safety. The Snatch process can be used to envelop and transport a completely unconscious victim.

Title:ROPER: Remotely Operated Personnel Engagement and Retrieval
Abstract:This project addresses the important problem of casualty retrieval in the battlefield that minimizes the danger of exposing the rescue team to enemy fire. We propose to develop a multiple-use casualty retrieval device for ground forces capable of: being deployed towards the wounded from a safe location/distance of up to 25 m; reliably engaging the wounded for retrieval; and retrieving the wounded and his/her load bearing equipment (up to 120 kg). The system we propose is referred to as ROPER: Remotely Operated Personnel Engagement Retrieval. The innovative ROPER concept promises to meet all the requirements for battlefield casualty retrial. Its advantages are: Safety to the rescue team; Reliability of retrieval; simplicity of the mechanism, and Multi-usability. The three ROPER components, will all have additional military utilities.

Title:Asymmetric Gradient Index prism Array Technology for Electronically Scanned Antennas
Abstract:To enable military aircraft to use low-power radar for all-weather and low altitude operations, the Applied Technology (AT) Division of Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes an electronically scanning, compact antenna technology. POC's approach will produce high scanning speeds and wide scanning angles, thanks to simple, user-friendly, low-power driving circuitry. POC's concept offers a much wider circle of applications, including passive and active imaging, autonomous guidance, target detection and tracking, and covering the millimeter and submillimeter bands of the feasibility of the concept and optimize the design parameters of an early prototype antenna.

Title:Electronically Scanned Phased Array Antenna (ESA)
Abstract:The United States Special Operations Command has a need for a common radar system for its aviation fleet. Currently there are four Terrain Following/Terrain Avoidance (TF/TA) radars and one weather radar in the Special Operations Forces (SOF) inventory. Critical to achieving a common radar is developing a common antenna. To this end, the goal of this Phase I study is to develop a single, common low-cost and lightweight Electronically Scanned Antenna (ESA) that can be employed for all SOF fixed, rotary wing, and tilt-rotor aircraft. Performance benefits include rapid beam scanning, beam agility, the performance of multiple functions such as TF/TA navigation and weather detection, commonality amongst SOF aircraft, reduced support costs, and increased reliability. Typically these gains are obtained at the expense of large increases in overall system cost and weight when employed a classical ESA architecture consisting of discrete elements, such as T/R modules. Radant Technologies has developed a novel approach to electronic beam steering that is predicted to meet the low cost, lightweight, and technical requirements of the SOF Common Radar. This approach, the Radant Lens ESA, employs bulk phase shifting to avoid using discrete elements behind each element and hence is intrinsically lightweight and low-cost.

Title:Electronically Scanned Phased Array Antenna (ESA)
Abstract:It would be highly desirable for military aircraft to utilize low-power radar when operating in all-weather conditions and low altitudes. The problem with this class of radar is that it requires a large antenna to receive an acceptable return to conduct operations. While such an antenna is acceptable for fixed wing aircraft, it is not for rotary and tilt-rotor aircraft because on-board size and weight constraints. Electronically scanned antenna (ESA) technology could provide the solution to this requirement. However, since airborne ESA suitable for expensive fixed-wing aircraft is generally expensive and heavy, it is therefore desirable to develop a lightweight, low-cost ESA that will allow incorporation of low-power coherent type radar systems on-board rotary and tilt-rotor aircraft. As is well known, ESA's have been in use for about 30 years, but are still too expensive with a per-module cost of $300 - $500. For rotary and tilt-rotor aircraft, the use of ESA will likely be predicted on the advent of array modules costing $100 or less per element. In this proposal, WEO outlines an approach using its proprietary technology to develop a laboratory model to meet this low-cost requirements for ESA.

Title:Database Conversion Software
Abstract:AcuSoft proposes to research and develop a database conversion tool based on the Synthetic Environment Data Representation and Interchange Specification (SEDRIS) to maximize the reusability and interchangeability of existing and future USSOCOM database. In the proposed PHASE I effort, we will investigate SEDRIS technology and develop a functioning prototype tools to demonstrate the ability to import and export databases between at least two formats that 1) support SEDRIS, and 2) are commonly used by USSOCOM mission rehearsal devices. The SEDRIS standard, the Interchange Transmittal Mechanism (ITM), makes it feasible to implement a many-to-ITM, and ITM-to-many database conversion tool. The SEDRIS program has addressed most fundamental database conversion issues through its data interchange experiments. This AcuSoft proposed effort emphasizes the 1) Validation, 2) Automation, and 3) Expandability aspects of the database conversion process. Validation, to ensure fidelity, is the most critical issue in the process. Automation will minimize to meet the USSOCOM's rapid-turnaround mission rehearsal requirements. Expandability allows the tool to accommodate various database construction techniques and new formats. A prototype conversion tool will be demonstrated at the end of Phase I. This proposed effort will re-use software from AcuSoft's on-going SEDRIS-related development programs.

Title:GeoTIFF 2.0 - A JPL Innovative GIS Tool for the Manipulation and Conversion of Multi-Scale Nested Geographic Datasets
Abstract:Through Army STTR Phase I and Phase II efforts, a flexible image manipulation architecture has been created and fielded based on the GeoTIFF version 1.0 format. This global commercial standard allows the display of vector, raster and matrix datasets in both 2D moving map systems and 3D real time perspective fly-through displays. The architecture is currently fielded in a JSOC Phase III production contract called "Jagged Shadow Digital Call for Fire System". While any GIS dataset can be manipulated with version 1.0, a separate file is required for each different data type and resolution. The proposed effort will add the important ability to integrate multiple resolution raster images for the same geographic area. The specific scientific advances transferred from JPL include their pioneering work on variable resolution image manipulation. Dubbs & Severino, Inc. has already converted their GeoTIFF v 1.0 architecture into a portable workstation which runs under Windows NT 4.0 on inexpensive Intel Pentium computers and this effort will similarly maximize the use of these proven globally pervasive COTS solutions.

Title:Databse Conversion Software
Abstract:Common Databases compatibility across multiple IG platforms is an exceeding difficult task. Historically, every image generator used its own database format, and modeling tools were proprietary and exclusive to the image generator they supported. Compounding the problem is the fact that it is not simply one database that must be shared across different IG platforms, but rather the multiple databases (such as SAF, IR and Visual) required for each simulation that must be perfectly correlated with one another and across multiple IG platforms. MGI's goal for this SBIR is to develop a process that is as automated as possible, supported by a GUI, for the conversion of existing databases through the use of our expertise in the data exchange environment. MGI would develop a framework (either with SEDRIS or other common formats to achieve this goal). MGI proposes to commercialize the GUI and the process by including the capability in our COTS CreatorPro option package tilted InteroperabilityPro. MultiGen modeling tools are used as core modeling tools by all major image generator manufacturers. By incorporating the conversion process and GUI into Creator, the tools immediately will have nearly universal availability to the simulation community in a COTS environment.

Title:Web-Based Lossless Databse Conversions via SEDRIS
Abstract:Over the past several years the Synthetic Environment Database Representation and Interchange Specification (SEDRIS) project has been developed to address the issues of simulation data interchange between heterogeneous applications in a non-ambiguous, lossless fashion. As one of the SEDRIS Associate Members, Reality by Design (RBD) has helped both to define and implement the SEDRIS standard. By utilizing RBD's expertise with SEDRIS and Internet-based SEDRIS applications, a software package will be developed to address the database conversion needs of the Special Operations Forces. Use of SEDRIS and the plugin-based format conversion architecture developed by RBD will provide the United States Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) with a single conversion application to perform all USSOCOM database conversion tasks. Different formats will be supported via the use of Dynamic Link Libraries, making the conversion software extensible and provide a future growth path. The conversion software will be accessed via a Web-based interface and support access to source data accessible over the Internet as well as private Intranets. The software package will support a variety of both input and output formats.

Title:Piezoelectric Actuators for Tactor Technology
Abstract:Especially during emergencies, pilots face "information overload". They might look away from their altitude and orientation sensor displays when something else demands their attention. It would help pilots, in the language of microcontrollers, to be "interrupt driven" by altitude and orientation sensors rather than having to constantly "poll" the displays. Input from a tactile actuator array could accomplish this goal by giving a physical interrupt to the pilot. Piezoceramics appear to be the most promising actuator material for the tactile actuator arrays. Lead Zirconate Titanat (PXT) is a commercially available piezoceramic material that has a long history of use as an actuator. PZTs have a high energy output per unit mass and volume and draw little power at low frequencies. The amplitude of PZTs can be smoothly varied and they can produce non-sinusoidal inputs. PZTs have already been shown to survive and operate in the harsh environment of space. Since the piezoelectric effect is due to a change in the applied electric field, PZT actuators do not produce magnetic fields. The Phase I effort will examine various actuator technologies and develop initial prototype designs. Phase II will refine these designs and then build and test prototypes of two candidate designs.

Title:Examination of Emerging Haptic Tactor Technology
Abstract:Existing tactile display technology is too large, and too delicate for many SOF uses. In addition, it is not suited to working underwater in non-magnetic applications. Pneumatic tactors already meet SOF requirements, but existing drivers for this type of tactor have used electric motors or voice coils, with an associated large magnetic field. The proposed work will focus on the further development of pneumatic tactile display technology to include drivers which are powered by compressed gas, and controlled through piezo-electric valves, so that magnetic signature of the system is practically zero. Additionally, we will address the subjects of size and ruggedness. A combination of theoretical considerations, supplier information, and laboratory tests will confirm that the conceptual design presented will meet expectations.

Title:Development of Innovative Zero Magnetic Signature Haptic Tactors
Abstract:Haptic tactor technology is an important enabling technology for tactile situation awareness systems (TSAS). The overall objective of the project is the development of innovative tactors, for providing haptic cues to military personnel operating in various environmental conditions, with improved characteristics in the following areas: (1) miniaturization, (2) variable tactile sensor strength (frequency and amplitude modulation), (3) robustness (shock and vibration), (4) waterproofing, (5) reliability, (6) produceability, and (7) magnetic signature. The proposed tactors will be the first to meet the zero magnetic signature requirement. Four kinds of zero magnetic signature tactor designs are proposed: a vibratory tactor, a linear motion striker tactor, a lateral motion "scratching" tactor , and a pneumatic tactor.

Title:Small Craft Vision Enhancement/Situation Awareness System
Abstract:A B technologies proposes to conduct advanced research leading to development of an enhanced Personal Visualization Environment (PVE) that will provide visualization of fused, multi-sensor, multi-spectral, image and non-image data from external sources. Our progress shows that a lightweight, eyeglass from factor having capabilities of full and partial transmissivity or full immersion virtual viewing will be required to meet the requirements. Our proposed research will create a specification for the most realistic and in-depth augmented environments using the most functional, physical visualization device. Upon completion of the Phase I effort we will produce a functional prototype. Ultimately, the offeror will develop a visualization device for warfighters that permits hand-free operation with full situational and spatial awareness. The capability will enhance command and control and improve force protection postures by making vehicle, aircraft and water craft operations safer. The resulting product will provide full modularity of components permitting integration into selected crewmand helmets and soldier and sailor support systems. Commercial applications will provide similar benefits to fire and safety organizations of state and local governments; will enhance future advanced distributed learning techniques employed by commerce and academia; and, will rapidly penetrate media entertainment markets.

Title:Small Craft Vision Enhancement/Situation Awareness System
Abstract:Small military maritime craft are responsible for the expedient delivery of personnel to an area(s) that will allow for the successful accomplishment of mission objectives. Often these craft are required to operate in littoral (shoreline) areas under various extreme conditions. It is therefore vital that an All-Weather Vision Enhancement / Situation Awareness System be designed and developed that will improve the performance of the craft by enhancing it's ability to collect, analyze, display, and distribute vital information to the crew. Such a system must be modular in size (<12"W x 12"L x 8"H total net package size) and weight (<201lbs net package weight) yet have the full capacity to significantly optimize the operator's awareness and ability to closely monitor the craft's sensors, processing and display elements. To address these issues, the proposed Phase I research will initially include a thorough investigation of the various technologies that can be used to integrate the bridge of small military maritime craft and further enhance the vision of existing navigational aids. Appropriate technologies will then be procured, and/or designed and develop, and integrated into a laboratory scale prototype to further illustrate and demonstrate the potential capabilities, limitations, and opportunities for future development of a modular All-Weather vision Enhancement/Situation Awareness System.

Title:Affordable Millimeter Wave Electronic Technology
Abstract:USSOCOM is in need of sensors and imaging capabilities that are all weather and have no detectable signature. These systems must be low cost, compact and flexible in applications. Passive millimeter wave sensor technology is an emerging technology that promises to fulfill those needs. The objective of the program is to demonstrate the applicability of this technology to USSOCOM requirements. The plan is to define what is needed, identify a candidate for further development and lay out a development program. To be relevant, technology development must be in line with operational requirements. A detailed review will be made of the requirements, and those requirements translated into technical specifications. Projected hardware will be used for deriving the technical specifications. Different SOF missions will be reviewed and different sensor requirements will be defined. Commercial applications will be similarly processed. A search will be made for the most promising candidates. Cost, and user timelines will be used to rank the technology candidates for maturity and manufacturability. A development program will be defined for a sensor system based on the chosen technology. It will extend through engineering and manufacturing development. A preliminary design of a fully functional prototype will form the basis of the development.

Title:Passive MMW Imaging Sensor Based on a New Scanning Antenna
Abstract:WaveBand Corporation (WaveBand) proposes to develop a new passive MMW imaging (PMMWI) System that will be distinguished by low cost, high-speed 2-D scanning, and wide-band operation. The key element of the proposed system is a novel scanning antenna based on an already experimentally tested concept. The antenna comprises a spinning disk that supports N switching multi-mode waveguides, and a zoned spherical lens. An array of N wide-band radiometers is coupled to the antenna to form the imaging system. The waveguides perform cross-switching between the focal points of the lens and the radiometers that allows to obtain a N x N MMW image per each rotation of the disk. The antenna is designed to operate in a very wide band (bandwidth in excess of 30% of the central frequency) and with incoherent MMW sources; this provides an ideal match to the desired operating conditions of a passive radar.

Title:Light Weight Easily Deployable Blast Barriers and Barricades
Abstract:Other than prevention the only way to deal with an explosive threat is to place a blast mitigation barricade between the threat and the structure(s) that need to be protected. Only after the barricade is in place can the threat be moved, disabled, or safely detonated. It is desirable that the barricade be portable and thus it needs to be light weight, compact, and easily manipulated by two to three individuals. Unfortunately a light weight, compact and easily moved barrier will not mitigate a blast from 100-150 kg of high explosive very well. Ideally what is needed is a light weight, compact and easily manipulated barrier that after being put in place can be altered to produce a heavy, large, and immobile blast barrier, energy absorber, or blast (shock wave) deflector. Federal fabrics-Fibers Inc. (FFF) has produced prototype products that exactly meet these specific requirements. These barricades weigh 20-40 lbs, when empty, so they are easy to manipulate during the early stages of development, when they are put into place. After positioning the barricade they are filled, preferably with water, or gel, from a convenient source to produce barricades that can weigh in excess of 25 tons.

Title:Lightweight, Portable, Blast-Resistant Barriers
Abstract:This study is to establish the feasibility of developing a lightweight portable, blast-resistant barrier that can be rapidly deployed to protect government and commercial facilities from terrorist bombs. This is to be accomplished by developing barrier concepts and determining their efficacy through analysis and experiments which indicate their response to blast loads and their effectiveness at protecting structures. The central features of the barrier designs proposed are ease of installation, demonstrable protection (as indicated by both experimental data and physics-based finite element codes), portability (to ensure rapid availability), and use of materials that can be stockpiled or are readily available. Guidelines will be provided for selecting the appropriate barrier and barrier configuration to meet a particular threat.

Title:Lightweight Portable Blast-Resistnat Barriers
Abstract:Production Products will develop a lightweight, modular, easily deployable barrier system that will be based on out proven polyurethane composite technology that has demonstrated the ability to absorb very high levels of elongation and energy without failure. This material can be elongated 500% repeatedly and still returns to it's original shape. We will design a barrier system around this structural material utilizing additional concepts such as hydraulic absorbers to develop a barrier that can thwart a conventional blast sufficiently to protect structures. In Phase I Production Products will characterize and define the threat and investigate materials including polyurethane, kevlar fabrics, ceramics, etc and energy absorbing structural concepts including air-water beams, interlocking panels, curtain walls, etc and develop a barrier system with the potential of defeating the threat. We will fabricate and test the selected prototype barrier system and demonstrate the feasibility of the prototype barrier system. In Phase II we will fabricate the design concept, predict energy absorption performance through laboratory tests, fabricate multiple lightweight, portable barrier systems, and support Special Operations Force SOF) field evaluations and incorporate resulting design modifications. We will develop production implementation/ commercialization plans immediately.

Title:Lightweight, Portable, Blast-Resistant Barrier
Abstract:Tension systems proposes to build lightweight, portable, blast-resistant barriers using tensigritic structures that consist of: an inner and outer fabric or film skin; discontinuous compressive members; connective tensile elements of Vectran cordage; proprietary mechanical connectors to attach the skins, compressive and tensile members; and an anchoring system. The size and shape of barrier prototype designs will be derived from an analysis of pertinent threats, and their equivalent size in pounds of TNT. We will use proprietary software to test conceptual barrier prototypes' responses to dynamic and static overpressure of the identified threats. The results of this analysis will be used to determine final barrier materials, size, and shape. Finally, we will prepare all design documentation necessary to build and test prototype barriers in Phase II.
