The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  2. Development of New Adaptive Polymer Lenses

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB092014

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to develop significantly improved adaptive polymer lenses (APLs) for use in a variety of imaging systems. APLs will be fabricated and characterized for focal length and optical properties. Electro-mechanical actuators will be investigated. An optical zoom system using the APLs developed on this contract will also be designed and included as part of the final r ...

  3. Novel Non-mechanical Liquid Crystal based Foveated Imaging System

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB093008

    A novel foveated imaging technology is proposed, suitable for integration into an urban surveillance system. The proposed technology has no moving parts has low power requirements and requires a single imaging camera. The technology exploits the beam steering capabilities of liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) which diffract light only into the m=±1 orders according to the handedness of ...

  5. Graded AlN/Al2O3 Precursor and Methods to Passivate Micro-Channel Coolers

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB101014

    Commercially available micro-channel coolers for high power laser diodes utilize copper's high thermal conductivity and ability to be micro-machined. Unfortunately, these coolers suffer from flow erosion and corrosion by the cooling fluid. Copper's ability to conduct electrical charge furthers the corrosion process and requires the use of deionized water as the heat carrying fluid. These factors i ...

  6. NanoEnhanced Toxic Industrial Chemicals Sensor

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: SB072001

    This proposal investigates handheld chemical sensors that utilize surface-enhanced Raman spectrometry, or SERS. First, SERS will be developed utilizing nanoporous alumina membranes with selective binders and metallic nanodots. These devices have demonstrated 10^12 enhancement Second, a microfluidic chip will be developed to house the SERS substrate, provide fluid access to the SERS chip, and pr ...

  7. Capturing Insights from Firefights to Improve Training

    SBC: HF DESIGNWORKS, INC            Topic: SB082036

    Despite continuous improvements in military tactics and technology, casualties still remain. Phase I examined the idea of the “first five firefights” to identify if Soldiers have an increased likelihood of becoming a casualty during the initial days of their tour. Research consisted of gathering and compiling Soldier fatality data, conducting interviews (individual and group) with Soldiers and ...

  8. Negative Refraction Superlattice SuperLens

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: SB072035

    This Phase II project is the continuation of the successful Phase I effort on developing new negative index metamaterials for future optics applications. The proposed technology will tackle those problems associated with existing metamaterial designs, including their need for using advanced nanofabrications, strong energy dissipation associated with the use of metals, and cost ineffectiveness, by ...

  9. Robust Distributed GPS Apertures

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: SB091012

    The DoD is heavily dependent on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for worldwide military operations. The GPS signal is subject to a variety of potential degradations, such as path loss (e.g., foliated or indoor environments), multipath (e.g., urban canyon or in-building), and interference (intentional or unintentional). There are many military applications where a group of GPS users may operat ...

  10. Network Centric Tracking for Integrated UGS and UAV Networks

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: SB092008

    The use of unmanned assets both on the ground and in the air are proving effective as semi-autonomous ISR platforms. While unmanned ground systems (UGSs) can provide stable, close-in, and persistent capabilities, unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) provide flexibility for wide area search missions and geometrically diverse viewing angles for the sensors. The primary focus of this proposed research is to ...
