  1. PolARES: A Recognition-based Crisis Decision System

    SBC: ALPHATRAC, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    Crisis decision-making is difficult and error-prone because it involves time-urgency, physical and emotional stress, chaotic conditions, and poor data availability/quality. This SBIR project will investigate, develop, and deploy a web-based software system (called PolARES) that supports key decisions for crisis management and battlefield applications. This system will produce a revolutionary impr ...

  2. Innovative Technologies for High Power Amplification at THz frequencies

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: SB162006

    In solid-state, a transistor-based concept is inherently transit-time limited. Transistors are already working with gate dimensions of 10s of nm and the saturation velocity of electrons in semiconductors is not going to exceed 107 – 108 cm/s, so there is no room to improve performance on a fundamental level. In VE devices, the diminished electron beam associated with scaling to small interaction ...

  3. Technologies for Nanoscale Imaging Using Coherent Extreme Ultraviolet and Soft X-Ray Light

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: ST15C001

    Nanoscale imaging techniques are critical for progress in many disciplines, as we learn to master science and technology at the smallest dimensions — on the nanometer to atomic-scale. However, progress is becoming increasingly limited by the constraint...

  4. Leap-Frogging The State-of-the-Art In Satellite Imagery Exploitation

    SBC: Heureka Corporation            Topic: SB162009

    Heureka and DigitalGlobe propose exciting innovations to leverage commercial and public satellite imagery for national security uses. We will conduct one of the world’s largest machine learning experiments ever attempted with submeter or very high reso...

  5. Medium Caliber Projectile Conformal Antenna RF Seeker

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SB153006

    With the emergence of new-evolving super-sonic anti-ship missiles and ship defense systems, effectiveness could be greatly enhanced by the incorporation of precision-guided projectile technology. The ability of individual projectiles to track and intercept deadly threats significantly enhances the survivability of the defended asset and results in fewer shots fired and a reduction in overall inter ...

  6. High Dynamic Range Atomic Magnetic Gradiometer

    SBC: QUSPIN INC.            Topic: SB161005

    In Phase II we will develop an intrinsic high dynamic range atomic gradiometer that operates in an urban environment at 3 fT/sqrt(Hz)/cm sensitivity with 5 cm baseline. The gradiometer is designed to be practical and cost effective for use in a wide rang...

  7. Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion Engines

    SBC: Firestar Engineering, LLC            Topic: SB072045

    Firestar Engineering, LLC has been exploring the use of NOFB monopropellants for use in very high altitude unmanned aerial vehicle applications. Monopropellants remove the requirement for ingesting air into the vehicle. As a result, the feed system is greatly simplified, and there is no requirement to reject the large quantity of waste heat at altitude that accompanies large compression ratio air ...

  8. Energy Storage Systems for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Excellatron Solid State, LLC            Topic: SB072041

    The lithium-oxygen electrochemical couple has the potential to form the basis of a very high specific energy, rechargeable battery for very high altitude unmanned aerial systems. We propose to investigate a variety of approaches to address cycle life, reliability, and safety of the lithium-oxygen battery, both in an oxygen atmosphere and in an “air breathing” mode. In addition to addressing th ...

  9. Persistent Platform in Geosynchronous Earth Orbit

    SBC: Spaceworks Enterprises, Inc.            Topic: SB161007

    In the Phase I SBIR, the SpaceWorks team proved the technical feasibility of a modular persistent platform in GEO based on the assembly of individual spacecraft each sized to the DARPA POD form factor. The team also determined that such a platform would ...

  10. Miniature and Reliale Chemical Sensors for Cell Phones

    SBC: SYNKERA TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: HSB081002

    In the event of a terrorist attack, the ability to measure the extent and location of the attack and rapidly notify first responders will be critical to saving lives. If the widespread use of cell phones could be harnessed with an ability to detect chemical threats and immediately notify authorities of the scope and location of the attack, public safety would be significantly enhanced. Synkera pro ...
