  1. "Protected" Nanoparticles for an Oral Single-Dose Staphylocaccal Enterotoxin B Vaccine

    SBC: TSRL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional methods of immunization in general require multiple injections at certain intervals to achieve the required protective immune response. However, this immunization protocol may not always be practical, especially for Army personnel in the field or in remote areas where access to the health care personnel may be difficult. Our program is based on the concept of complete immunization ( ...

  2. 65-GHz Bandwidth 900-1600 nm Photodetector

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to develop a novel 65-GHz bandwidth photodetector with high sensitivity between 900-1600 nm. This detector will have a response time of 5 ps, making it the fastest near-IR photodetector available. It will have a responsivity of 0.2 A/W and dark current < 50 nA, with an active area of 50x50 square micrometers. It will also be capable of generating signals with ampli ...

  3. A Cognitive Architecture for Naval Mine Countermeasures (MCM)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N121082

    Current Mine Countermeasure (MCM) operations attempt to balance risk and time via processes that are staff and time intensive. The range of experience in the MCM staff further complicates these processes. Existing tools such as MEDAL provide some support to address these issues, but those tools lack a comprehensive coverage of the process; in particular, there is no direct replanning support. Addi ...

  4. A Conformal Packaging and Installation Technique for In Situ Sensors in Extreme Environments

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: N112123

    Sporian Microsystems Inc. has spent the last several years developing polymer derived SiCN sensor and associated packaging technology for application temperatures up to 1350 & #176;C, and demonstrated them in the combustion environments of a range of commercial burner rigs and aerospace turbine engines. Based on our expertise in high-temperature materials and packaging processes, we propose to dev ...

    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A continuously tunable laser source covering the 2-5 micron wavelength region is proposed. Light generated by a diode laser pumped tunable Cr:LiSAF laser is Raman shifted twice in Hydrogen to nicely cover the 205 micron window. The unique feature of the proposed laser is that the Raman shifting cell and optics are placed inside the pump laser cavity. As a result sufficient gain and interaction len ...

  6. A Distributed Sensor Manager

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Many tactical scenarios include coordinated actions by distributed platforms. Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Lockheed Ft. Worth Company will develop innovative methods for handling sensor management among distributed heterogeneous sensing platforms of varying degrees of coupling. This work builds on DFC's work on sensor management and Lockheed's work on multi-platform resource sharing. Platf ...

  7. A GPS Small Rocket Tracking System for Meteorological and Atmospheric Research

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    NAVSYS has developed a low cost sensor, the TIDGET (TM), which is currently being used for tracking weather balloons, but also has application for small rockets. The TIDGET sensor operates by buffering brief snapshots of GPS data for transmission to a ground processing system through an on-board telemetry link. This simplified the functionality in the rocket payload. Conventional GPS receivers ...

  8. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  9. A High Temperature, Conformal, MCM for In-situ Sensing in Turbine Engine Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF112165

    ABSTRACT: There has been a strong desire in the turbine engine and thermal protection systems communities to measure surface parameters (such as temperature/pressure) in tight spaces within the engine system using conformal sensors. This type of sensor, prescribed in areas such as turbine and compressor blades would provide unprecedented information to the engine community. New sensor and high-t ...

  10. A Large Area, High-speed CCD Imager Suitable for Use in Ambient Lighting Conditions

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High-speed, large area detector arays are needed for recording fast events in both military and commercial applications. Deblurring of high-velocity targets within an image require extremely short exposure times. Short exposure times in turn, reduce the time availble for photon intergration and, because of increased amplifier bandwidths, result in higher noise levels at the CCD sense node. The des ...
