  2. Optical Code Division Multiple Access Systems in High-Speed Telecommunications

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "BNS and University of Colorado at Boulder propose a novel spectral optical code division muliple access (OCDMA) system with bipolar coede capability for use in ultra-high-speed communication applications. A prototype one-dimensional spectral OCDMA systemwill by construted, and the feasibility of a two-dimensional (2-D) OCDMA system will be demonstrated using digital micromirror or liquid crystal ...

  3. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis Throught Latent Semantic Analysis


    We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to be built upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) methods and software tools to validate and refine the UAF. We will also use LSA as the underlying analysis engine for the software tools, which will provide support for pro ...

  4. Numerical Modeling of Omnidirectional Reflectivity

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: AF02T015

    We will provide convenient and accurate time-domain modeling capabilities for electromagnetics (EM) in dielectric media with regions having oblique boundary conditions, specifically for devices exhibiting omnidirectional reflectivity. Omnidirectional reflectors, constructed with layers of dielectrics, reflect electromagnetic radiation with 100% efficiency for all incident angles and polarizations ...

  5. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...

  6. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  7. Optimal Training System

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: AF04T014

    Successful training in complex environments is normally accomplished through the interaction of a trainee and a skilled expert, but due to resource constraints, experts’ use in training can be problematic. Using an optimal model of task performance subject to human constraints may be a more efficient way to develop models of skilled human performance for use in training, especially since optima ...

  8. Organic Based Flexible Transistors and Electronic Devices

    SBC: Organicid, Inc.            Topic: AF04T010

    Objective The objective of this project is to develop an organic solution-based CMOS process capable of producing printed RFID tags. Key to this objective is to optimize the n-type semiconductor and dielectric materials developed in Phase I, and to integrate these materials into a complete process line. The Approach CMOS utilizes p-type and n-type transistors to significantly reduce static power d ...

  9. MEMS Colloid Thruster Array

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: AF04T005

    Colloid thruster technology continues to be attractive for spacecraft propulsion, especially since its specific impulse can be many times greater than even the best bi-propellant chemical rocket. However, the technology was abandoned in the 1970s due to low charge-to-mass ratios, which lead to excessively high voltages and large inert mass fractions. The recent advent of microelectromechanical s ...

  10. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to extend a steganogrpahic architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The initial arc ...
