  1. Low Voltage Radiation Hardened Optoelectronics for Optical Interconnects

    SBC: QUANTTERA LLC            Topic: DTRA152001

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) recognizes the need for low-power high-bandwidth radiation-hard optical interconnects to process more data more quickly and to replace electronic data.Our companys core development in optical communications with semiconductor materials is a unique fit for DTRAs low-power consumption high-bandwidth radiation-hard intra-chip communication components for sat ...

  2. Tomographic Nanoscopy for Pathogen Identification

    SBC: SOLID STATE SCIENTIFIC CORPORATION            Topic: CBD171003

    This effort will augment the capabilities of an existing all reflecting, confocal FTIR microscope to allow for digital holographic imaging as wellspectral content determination at video frame rates. The use of a dual beam frequency comb, with a beam path coincident with the pathrequired for the digital holographic imaging, will allow spectral determination of any organism being holographically ima ...

  3. Low-Cost Sensing Array for Infrasound

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA172001

    Infrasound and seismic measurements are used by DTRA and the DoD for nuclear test monitoring, terrorist blast forensics, battle damage assessment, and environmental monitoring. However, these long wavelength physical signals are typically recorded through single-point sensors or sparse low density arrays. As a result, the critical signals of interest are often corrupted or masked by noise or inter ...

  4. Hermetic Seals for Chemical/Biological Protective Garments

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD13109

    Interfaces on existing military chemical/biological protection garments are not designed to fully eliminate macroscopic and microscopic airgaps at folds, fabric surfaces, or hook-and-loop closures, and thus do not provide a hermetic barrier against exposure. Creare is developinghermetic garment closure systems that seal macroscopic and microscopic gaps at interfaces and closures and provide high c ...

  5. A Robust, Machine Independent, Software Toolkit for Topology Aware Process Mapping on Distributed Memory HPC Architectures

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: DTRA172002

    A significant performance gap exists between the theoretical number of Floating Point Operations (FLOPS) that a HPC machine is capable of sustaining and the number of FLOPS realized by real-world HPC applications. One of the principle reasons for this gap is the parasitic work that computational processes must do to communicate with one another. It has been shown that this communication work can b ...

  6. The Characterization and Mitigation of Single Event Effects in Ultra-Deep Submicron (< 90nm) Microelectronics

    SBC: Orora Design Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA07005

    Orora Design Technologies proposes to develop electronic design automation (EDA) tools employing minimally invasive circuit design-based methods to mitigate single event effects (SEEs) for next generation Ultra-DSM CMOS (

  7. Omni-Directional, Wind and Water Tolerant Inlet for the DFU

    SBC: ENERTECHNIX, INC.            Topic: CBD07116

    The current DFU inlet exhibits poor aerosol sampling efficiency at high wind speeds. This project will develop an improved inlet with very high sampling efficiency for 1 to 20 micron particles at wind speeds up to 30 mph independent of wind direction. The project is focused on the DFU, but our Aerodynamic Next Generation Inlet (ANGI) will be beneficial for any high volume aerosol sampling applicat ...

  8. Portable Time of Flight Mass Spectrometer for Nuclear Forensics

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: DTRA08004

    Analysis of nuclear material samples in the field has many advantages over laboratory analysis. Laboratory analyses can be slow, involve increased expense, lead to additional waste generation and disposal problems, and may introduce errors due to sample degradation or mishandling. In situ analysis mitigates all of these problems. The specific aim of this project is the development of a truly por ...

  9. Automated Objective Speech Intelligibility Assessment System

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: CBD07106

    Based on the success of our Phase I feasibility research, we propose to continue the project for the automated objective speech intelligibility assessment system. It consists of a pair of head and torso simulators placed at the same distance as typical face-to-face communication, a power amplifier, a laptop computer, a speech recognizer, and console software. The simulator has acoustic properties ...

  10. Lightweight, Efficient Blower for Personal Air Ventilation System

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: CBD07115

    A personal air ventilation system (PAVS) can dramatically improve the environment inside chemical/biological protective clothing, protecting the health and safety of soldiers and enabling peak physical/mental performance for long periods. However, existing air blowers that can produce the flow rate and pressure drop needed for a PAVS are too heavy, inefficient, and noisy for a man-portable system ...
