  1. Offshore Wind Energy Resource Siting

    SBC: SEALANDAIRE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: 911SG

    Over the last decade, it has been noted that offshore wind energy resource development could prove extensively valuable in many areas of our nation’s growth, including continued diversification of our energy supply, more options for cost-competitive electricity in coastal and Great Lakes regions, and economical stimulation through new and lasting infrastructure development. The challenges associ ...

  2. ULTRA-HIGH PERFOMANCE SOLID-STATE REFRIGERATION USING II-VI LOW DIMENSIONAL STRUCTURE

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF131182

    ABSTRACT: This program targets development of a high-performance thermoelectric (TE) cooler with a figure-of-merit, ZT>3, which greatly exceeds currently available technology. The cooler is fabricated using Group II-VI compound semiconductors, i.e. HgCdSe or HgCdTe, using a low dimensional structure know as a"superlattice"(SL). The proposed TE coolers will operate at temperatures ranging from 5 ...

  3. Ultra-High-Performance Concrete

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Ultra-high performance concrete (UHPC) materials with outstanding material properties offer significant promise to transform infrastructure design and service life. Evolution of UHPC into a mainstream construction material would benefit from the resolution of issues relevant to the restrictive selections of finer aggregates/fillers, large heat of hydration and thermal stresses, high aut ...

  4. Compact, Low-Cost THz Test System

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: AF12BT08

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to demonstrate the feasibility of developing a low cost, compact, time-domain terahertz (TD-THz) spectrometer specifically for the characterization of semiconductor materials over a range of temperatures, electric fields, and magnetic fields. In phase I, we will configure fiber optic coupled TD-THz instrumentation to make measurements on a sampl ...

  6. Power Efficient Software Defined Radio (SDR) Mobile Architecture Technology for Handheld Devices

    SBC: Isocline Engineering            Topic: AF121156

    ABSTRACT: In this proposal we describe a highly flexible, ultra low-lower power GNSS receiver. By building the receiver from the ground up with flexibility and ultra-low voltage in mind, we are able to achieve a 5-20x improvement in energy-efficiency while providing support for a wide variety of GNSS codes. The proposed flexible code generator is able to efficiently support C/A, L2C, M, P, and L5 ...

  7. Electromagnetic Hardened Composite Enclosures for Aircraft Systems

    SBC: BT ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF131110

    ABSTRACT: BTE proposes a multi-component architecture composed of structural composites and thin layers of optimal shielding materials. The structure will provide a 65 to 75% weight reduction over an aluminum or steel enclosure while providing the same structural rigidity and comparable EMI/EMP isolation. The enclosure uses proven technologies, and uses inexpensive stock materials. The enclosur ...

  8. RF TRAVELING-WAVE SCANNING SYSTEM WITH A NONINVASIVE, BROADBAND PHOTONIC PROBE

    SBC: ADVANCED FIBER SENSORS, INC.            Topic: AF131113

    ABSTRACT: The feasibility of developing a prototype traveling-wave scanning system based on non-metallic, broadband, optical-fiber-coupled microwave-field sensors that can be used for the test and evaluation of coatings applied to the surface of aircraft without damaging the coating layers is investigated. The concepts to be employed in performing the measurement of microwave surface waves will b ...

  9. Mitigating Sensor Saturation through Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF131121

    ABSTRACT: We propose a novel multi-frame image processing approach which employs High-Dynamic-Range (HDR) imaging in combination with model-based lens-flare estimation as a means of mitigating focal plane saturation and lens flare when extremely bright sources are present in MWIR imagery. Collecting multiple image frames with varying optical flux densities provides information over a diverse set ...

  10. Mitigating Sensor Saturation through Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: CONSOLIDATED RESOURCE IMAGING LLC            Topic: AF131121

    ABSTRACT: Sensor saturation and the resultant loss of information is a problem that plagues both infrared and electro-optical sensors. Saturation often leads to blooming or dilation of the saturated region, destroying data in surrounding regions. A means for enhancing imagery through post processing to minimize the effects of blooming and maximize the value of remaining image content is proposed. ...
