  1. Near-Real-Time Integration of Soil State Information

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: A17130

    The Army requires the development of models for improving the state-of-the-art understanding of soil state characteristics in regions with varying observational input datasets.Currently, weather-scale remote sensing, mesoscale standoff sensing, and point-scale in situ sensing provide approximate measurements of near-surface soil moisture at different scales and extents of coverage.In addition, soi ...

  3. Extended Short-Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPA) for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: A16042

    Hyperspectral imaging at full short- and extended short-wavelength infrared spectral band (0.92.5 m) has important military applications. When used for imaging, a SWIR camera can operate at night using light reflected off the subject in the scene, generating high resolution images with details such as shadows and surface roughness. Compared to thermal infrared imaging, SWIR images look more like v ...

  4. Surface Haptic Technology for Geospatial Display

    SBC: Tanvas, Inc.            Topic: A15049

    The goal of this development effort is to provide warfighters with inexpensive methods to view geospatial intelligence information on a hand-held tablet through their sense of touch. This allows eyes-free and silent operation without generating light. This proposal deals with two surface haptic display technologies. Variable-friction displays create haptic effects by varying the coefficient of fri ...

  5. Colloidal Quantum Dots for Cost Reduction in EO/IR Detectors for Infrared Imaging

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: A17029

    Technical Abstract (200 word limit):While state-of-the-art microbolometers demonstrate impressive capabilities for low-cost uncooled long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging, there is currently a need for low-cost, mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) imaging systems capable of high performance with fast frame rates at high operating temperatures. HgTe colloidal quantum dot (CQD) focal plane arrays (FPAs ...

  6. High-Efficiency Low-Volume Flight Pulse Tube Cryocooler

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA17T003

    CU Aerospace (CUA) and team partners San Jose St. University (SJSU) and Lockheed Martin Space Systems Company (LMSSC) propose to develop a robust epoxy resin regenerator capable of improving cryocooler efficiency by more than 30%, and to design an enhanced compressor motor capable of improving the cryocooler efficiency by more than 20%. LMSSC manufactures a space cryocooler that already meets most ...

  7. Control Electronics for Space-Qualified Cryogenic Coolers

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: MDA17T003

    Future MDA space missions will utilize small spacecraft with correspondingly small, advanced sensor systems.Cooling of these sensors is required to decrease detector noise and increase detector sensitivity by maintaining the detector at a reduced operating temperature.The cooling system comprises a mechanical cryocooler and its control electronics, both of which are critical technologies to enable ...

  8. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: QmagiQ, LLC            Topic: A16AT009

    Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) is an infrared detector material that promises higher quantum efficiency than antimony-based superlattices in the longwave infrared (LWIR).This is due to the longer diffusion length of minority carrier holes in the bulk than in superlattices where they are localized.No native substrate exists for lattice-matched growth of InAs(x)Sb(1-x) material with LWIR bandgaps.So a key chal ...

  9. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are adsorbents that show promise in toxic chemical remediation, medical oxygen storage, high-value gas recovery, and multiple other military and civilian applications. However, a lack of quality-controlled supply limits these materials to laboratory environments. This work will borrow from industrial Quality practices to ensure supplied material conforms to specific ...

  10. Scalable Manufacturing of Functional Yarns for Textile-based Energy Storage

    SBC: Natural Fiber Welding, Inc.            Topic: A17AT013

    Natural fiber welding (NFW) is a disruptive bioengineering platform that has broad applications to manufacturing high performance materials and composites from abundant natural materials.By careful control of NFW process conditions, native order and structure of biopolymers is retained thus creating strong composites without glue while preserving the impressive native physical characteristics of f ...
