  1. The `Learning Element


    School-level curriculum design and instructional delivery is often traditional, not incorporating highly interactive, multimodal social media technologies where users generate content to provide feedback for learners and to support formative assessment. This project team will develop key elements of today’s Web 2.0 social networking technologies to include the potential for collaborative con ...

  3. FPGA Low Power Design Rules

    SBC: BINACHIP, INC.            Topic: A09127

    Commercial FPGA programming software tools use logic synthesis tools to route the connections between logic gates, look-up tables, and memory units. Current commercial tools, however, are optimized to maximize operation speed and minimize area and memory utilization. This proposal addresses the needs of the Department of Defense for a solution that provides a means of reducing FPGA power consumpti ...

  4. Photovoltaic cells integrated with thermoelectric coolers for critical electronic equipment cooling and thermal management of base camps

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT024

    Present thermoelectric devices operate at about 10% of the Carnot efficiency, whereas the efficiency of compressor-based refrigerators is larger than 30%. An increase in the thermoelectric figure of merit ZT above 3 is needed before thermoelectric technology can replace current air conditioning technologies in many applications. Recent models have predicted that ZT can reach 6 in metal/HgCdTe supe ...

  5. Passive Infrared Detection of Aerosolized Bacterial Spores

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10AT019

    The capability to reliably and remotely detect, identify and track biological aerosols is a critical need for the United States military. EPIR Technologies proposes to improve this capability by making use of the infrared signatures from biological aerosol broadband Mie scattering, comprising both mid and long wavelength infrared (MW/LWIR) components, as well as a potential polarization component. ...

  6. Small Pitch Flip-Chip Interconnects for Focal Plan Arrays/Readout Integrated Circuit Hybridization

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A09084

    Infrared night vision is a key technology employed by the U.S. military for multiple critical applications. The cameras utilize detector pixel arrays (often composed of HgCdTe) hybridized to silicon read out circuitry. For next generation applications, the goal is to reduce pixel pitch and increase the number of pixels in the chip to improve image resolution and increase the instantaneous area tha ...

  7. In-Vacuo Passivation of High Aspect Ratio HgCdTe Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A10018

    As HgCdTe technology has evolved, many of the devices used in infrared detector applications have required the creation of high-aspect-ratio morphologies. Therefore, equally important to the creation of these high-aspect-ratio geometries is the ability to subsequently deposit the necessary materials on these surfaces. To ensure ideal device performance, the material deposition must be uniform, c ...

  8. Behavior of Minimum Signature Propellants During Impact ITests on Insensitive Munitions

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A09128

    Predicting the violent behavior of energetic materials in accident scenarios is an important issue for the analysis of the performance of explosives and solid rocket propellants. We propose a computational program to predict the shock initiation behavior and subsequent energy release that leads to violent reaction of minimum signature propellants under several impact threat conditions. The modelin ...

  9. Modular Perfusion Bioreactor for Tissue Engineering

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: OSD09H11

    This project will develop and demonstrate a prototype Modular Perfusion Bioreactor (MPB) for tissue engineering applications. While many unique styles of bioreactors have been proposed for various types of stem cell and tissue cultures, there is not a single, easy-to-use device that accommodates the multiple diverse needs of multiple tissue culture types.. In order to take advantage of recent ad ...

  10. Feasibility of High Operating Temperature MWIR Type-II FPAs

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A09083

    Current high-performance MWIR FPAs require cooling to ~77K. This generally requires the use of a cryocooler that limits the system lifetime. If the FPA operation temperature can be raised to >170 K without sacrificing performance, then lower power and longer lifetime MWIR cameras should be possible. Type II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering ...
