  3. Advanced Detection of Improvised Explosive Devices (IEDs)

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: AF06113

    Standoff detectors are required to detect IEDs. These detectectors are needed to save the lives of American soldiers. QuantaSpec has developed patent pending methods for long-range, sensitive, and selective standoff detection of explosives. These methods have already demonstrated sensitive remote detection of explosive vapors under previous efforts. QuantaSpec's multidisciplinary team will dem ...

  4. Low Cost, Radiation Hardened, Noise Resistant Inertial Measurement Unit

    SBC: Space Photonics, Inc.            Topic: MDA06046

    Space Photonics, Inc. (SPI) is proposing development of a revolutionary integrated optical encoder-IMU that is the “last piece of the puzzle” for applying our beam steering technologies to long distance link systems (GEO-to-GEO, GEO-to-LEO) and high-precision IR object tracking. This MEMS sensor innovation utilizes an optical encoding technique whereby an optical fiber input and an optical fi ...

  5. Geolocation and Attitude Determination from Laser Communication Systems

    SBC: Space Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF071276

    To realize the benefits of formation flying multi-spacecraft clusters, four key elements must be present: 1. Broadband inter-spacecraft communications to enable the transport of high resolution sensor data. 2. Precision inter-spacecraft timing synchronization to enable precise multi-sensor sampling throughout the cluster. 3. Precision inter-spacecraft relative range to enable the determination of ...

  8. High-Efficiency and Less Expensive Nanocrystal-Based Scintillator

    SBC: MESOLIGHT, LLC            Topic: 26

    Nuclear Physics research has a need for next generation scintillation detectors with high response rates, improved sensitivity, and low production cost. Inorganic scintillators have high output efficiency, but rely on the growth of bulk crystal ¿ a challenging task for most inorganic materials. Due to their relatively low cost and availability as large size sheets, organic scintillators would b ...

  10. High Energy Density, Low-Cost, High Temperature Capacitors for Hybrid Vehicles

    SBC: Sbe Inc            Topic: 05

    Hybrid Electric Vehicles (HEVs) and plug-in Hybrid Vehicles (PHEVs) require advanced technology capacitors, which must have low cost and the ability to operate at 150oC. However, current 150oC film capacitor solutions are expensive and have lower energy density compared to materials that operate at lower temperatures. Polypropylene Film Capacitors represent a potentially cost effective solution ...
