  1. ADIDRUS: Using Deception to Protect and Defend UAVs

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems. As their utilization grows, these unmanned systems will become a significant target for cyber attack. Indeed, existing Defense Department unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been subjected to attack by various adversaries. ...

  2. Optimized Taggant Delivery Systems

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112002

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase II SBIR, a Voxtel Inc. led team will develop a lightweight small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) delivered payload, including targeting and fire-control sub-system, taggant dissemination hardware, and taggant reservoir, that is capable of covertly delivering optical taggants. Because the performance of auto-pilots and video trackers is limited by SRPA system constraints, t ...

  3. Improved Hyperspectral Readout Integrated Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112135

    ABSTRACT: To increase the performance of current and next-generation imaging spectrometers for military applications, in this Phase II SBIR effort, a flexible readout integrated circuit (ROIC), optimized for hyperspectral imaging (HSI) will be developed with enhanced capabilities. The ROIC features a 1024 (spatial) x 512 (spectral) format, with 20 micron pitch pixel elements, and has been develop ...

  4. TAU Commander: An Intuitive Interface for the TAU Performance Analysis System

    SBC: ParaTools INC            Topic: 02b

    The TAU Performance System is a powerful and highly versatile profiling and tracing tool ecosystem for performance analysis of parallel programs. Developed over the last 15 years, TAU has evolved with each new generation of HPC systems and scales efficiently to hundreds of thousands of cores on the largest computers in the world. TAUs organic growth has resulted in a loosely coupled potpourri of ...

  5. PRISMS- Profile Resolving In-Situ Soil Moisture Sensor

    SBC: Transcend Engineering and Technology, LLC            Topic: 20a

    Many contaminated DOE sites are located in arid regions where depth to groundwater is significant and/or contaminants were discharged into a vadose zone through which transport to the groundwater table is dominated by unsteady, unsaturated groundwater flow. The absence of an effective means to monitor vadose zone moisture content in profile has been a persistent impediment to developing and calibr ...

  6. Low SWAP LIDAR Instrument for Arctic Ice Sheet Mass Balance Monitoring

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 17a

    The U.S. Arctic continues to be one of the most difficult places on Earth for year-round scientific observations and research, and ice sheet and sea level changes have been explicitly identified as a current priority in the Presidents Climate Change Science Program, the Arctic Climate Impact Assessment, the 4th Assessment Report of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC), and other na ...

  7. High-Count-Rate, High Resolution Single Photon Detector

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 26b

    Megapixel-class imaging systems with single-photon sensitivity, high time resolution (sub-ns), and the capabilities to detect and process photons at high rates (above 108 detected photons per second) are highly desirable for a number of DOE, homeland security, national defense, and nuclear medicine applications. The event timing resolution largely depends on the specific application, but can rang ...

  8. Digital Silicon Photomultiplier Readout Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 42b

    SiPMs have received significant investigation over recent years, because they offer potential as a solid-state single- photon-sensitive alternative to photomultipliers (PMTs), but their performance does not meet the needs of science, and there are no commercial fabs capable of manufacturing them at low cost. An important feature of SiPM technology is that it is possible to integrate the electron ...

  9. Self Configuring Solar Tracking System

    SBC: Inspired Light, Llc            Topic: 05b

    Inspired Light is developing a high-efficiency Concentrating Photovoltaic (CPV) system that requires accurate, 2-axis tracking. Available tracking systems are too large, expensive and require specialized setup procedures that are incompatible with a very low cost, versatile deployment strategy. This project will develop and demonstrate feasibility of a self-configuring solar tracking mechanism an ...

  10. Variable Inlet Bypass for Efficient Wide Flow Range Turbocharger Compressor

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 06c

    Increased use of Exhaust Gas Recirculation (EGR) combined with engine downsizing has pushed automotive turbocharger compressor operation towards and often beyond its efficient and stable operating boundaries. Much of the drive cycle is spent operating the compressor at low flow rates and low pressure ratios, near the compressor surge line, in an area which is usually of low efficiency. Our prelimi ...
