  2. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    During the program baseline, LCI will develop an eyesafe, large array RT3D camera system that generates both 3D and 2D grayscale imagery in real-time that can be mounted on the iRobot PackBot. The 3D and 2D grayscale imagery can be fused in software to display both range and albedo information for each pixel in the 3D image, a display that will provide better scene understanding. During the option ...

  3. Advanced Technologies for Reducing Decompression Obligation and Risk

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: SB131004

    Despite over 100 years of research, decompression sickness (DCS) remains the mission-limiting factor in the design and execution of combat diving operations.Divers may spend over an hour decompressing after spending as little as ten minutes at the target depth.While decompressing, divers are limited in vertical mobility, making then susceptible to detection and threatening their survivability.This ...

  4. Biometrics-at-a-distance

    SBC: VAWD APPLIED SCIENCE & TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: SB121004

    VAWD is proud to submit this proposal to explore a new sensor development potentially capable of precise determination of Potential Threat Elements (PTE) identified by Polarimetric STTW radar systems. Current STTW radar has demonstrated the ability to detect persons through obstructions at operational relevant ranges. Although the systems have proven the ability to capture differentiating characte ...

  5. Built-In Filament Control for Long Lifetime in Broad Area Diode Lasers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: ST061009

    In this Phase 2 program, nLight intends to demonstrate high-reliability / high-efficiency 808-nm broad area diode lasers. The root-cause of the failure modes of diode lasers investigated under Phase 1 will be addressed in this program. Collaborative work on built-in filament control by etching holes will continue in this program. Prototype designs first demonstrated by focused ion beam processi ...

  7. Gas-Kinetic Simulation of Separated Flows

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: SB072006

    This SBIR project proposes to develop a gas-kinetic CFD solver for separated turbulent flow simulation. After successfully developing prototype two-dimensional gas-kinetic BGK-NS/Burnett solvers and demonstrating the benefits of using higher-order hydrodynamic equations for separated turbulent flow simulation in Phase I, the technical objective of Phase II work will be to fully develop and validat ...

  9. Non-Toxic Chemical Formulation for Incapacitation and Destruction of Small Arms and Light Weapons

    SBC: Lombardi, John L.            Topic: ST061010

    This program will entail making further refinements to a rapidly polymerizable resin which was shown during the Phase I Program to induce corrosion and ductility loss within treated steel rifle barrels. Besides optimizing the formulations, efforts will also be directed during this Phase II program towards devising suitable equipment for efficiently dispensing this resin into rifles using truck, b ...

  10. Optical Modulator Bias Control for Analog Fiber Optic Link Applications

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: SB062014

    Typically, the electro-optical Mach-Zehnder interferometric intensity modulator is the key optical component that determines the ultimate performance of an externally-modulated high-performance analog RF fiber-optic link. Intrinsically, the device has a symmetric structure and has a transmission peak at zero bias. In order to operate at the maximum linearity quadrature point, the optical symmetr ...
