  1. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: DECIBEL RESEARCH, INC            Topic: A10AT019

    deciBel Research and our university partner, Rochester Institute of Technology (RIT)-Center for Imaging Science, propose to develop a dual MWIR/LWIR imaging polarimeter for the detection and discrimination of aerosolized biological spores. The system will exploit spectral absorption and MIE scattering-induced radiometric and polarimetric phenomenon exhibited by clouds of aerosolized biological spo ...

  5. High Power IMPATT-Mode AlGaN/GaN HFETs for mm-Wave Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A05T008

    A new Aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) based heterojunction field-effect transistor (HFET) structure is proposed that utilizes avalanche impact ionization for very high frequency operation (>100 GHz). The main goal of this program is to demonstrate the potential of these devices as a replacement for vacuum tubes in mm-wave applications including radars and communications transmitters. In the Pha ...

  6. Image/Model Based System for Optimized Helmet Design

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T030

    Military helmets are designed based on costly and time consuming laboratory ballistic tests, firing range, and forensic data. Until now advanced medical imaging and computational modeling tools have not been adequately utilized in the design and optimization of military helmets. The overall objective of this project is to develop 3D medical imaging techniques for the brain ballistic injury model a ...

  7. Computational Design Tool for the Synthesis and Optimization of Gel Formulations (SOGeF)

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: A05T003

    Gel propulsion systems combine the best characteristics of solid and liquid propellants. The gel system stores like solid propellant, but flows like a liquid when pressurized, enabling throttle and restart capability similar to liquid propellants. An enabling technology for the further advancement of gelled propulsion is the development of tools to render the development of propellant formulation ...
