  1. Tactical Immune System (TIS) based on Dynamically Assigned Sense of Self

    SBC: CYBERROCK INC.            Topic: A16AT010

    Advanced Persistent Threat (APT) poses a serious threat to all mission critical systems and networks. No onewhether government, business, or individualis exempt from the ravages of malicious cyber acts (e.g., APT) upon imperfect technologies. While existing cyber defenses (e.g., firewall, authentication, IDS/IPS, antivirus) are very helpful, they fail to address the real cause of all APTsthe secur ...

  2. Thin Film Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals for Sensor Applications

    SBC: Summit Information Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Summit Information Solutions, Inc. (Summit) proposes to use a mature thin film deposition technology, widely adopted by the microelectronics industry, to deposit pinhole-free thin films of copper and silver metal (< 10nm) onto oxide substrates. While there has been some success with using this thin film deposition technique to deposit these films onto metal substrates, a viable, repeatable methodo ...

  3. Low-Temperature Fabrication of Flexible, High-Efficiency Perovskite Photovoltaic Modules for Energy Harvesting Applications

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: A17AT002

    Through the proposed STTR program, NanoSonic and Virginia Tech will fabricate flexible perovskite solar modules (12 x 12) that are capable of providing conversion efficiencies greater than 20% under AM 1.5G standard solar spectrum, and which demonstrate stability against temperatures up to 50C and relative humidity up to 80%. The photovoltaic market is dominated by crystalline silicon solar panel ...

  4. Countering High Radiance CW Beams with Photonic Nanostructures

    SBC: FIBERTEK, INC.            Topic: A17AT003

    The proposed effort will investigate several nanophotonic structures to engineer the phase and amplitude of an incident optical beam to form a protective surface layer. Dielectric metasurfaces are used to engineer the optical properties of a protective layer on a sub-wavelength scale. Evaluations will be performed on the interactions of the metasurfaces with high energy lasers to form a basis ...

  5. Tunable Active HEterodyne Terahertz Imager (TAHETI)

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17AT007

    LongWave Photonics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Virginia Diodes are proposing the use of the Terahertz Quantum-Cascade Lasers (QCL) combined with a Schottky diode detector for high dynamic range heterodyne imaging. Two single-mode, distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs with milliwatt power levels will be used as local oscillator and illumination for imaging. The QCLs will be downconverte ...

  6. 3D Tomographic Scanning Microwave Microscopy with Nanometer Resolution

    SBC: Alcatera Inc.            Topic: A17AT008

    Near-Field Scanning Microwave Microscopy (SMM) is a technique relying on a raster scan of a microwave probe across a sample surface, while measuring its reflected microwave signal. The existing technologies are limited to the surface analysis, and are not compatible with liquid environment. These limitations are addressed by the proposed wideband 3D tomography SMM with sub-surface analysis capabil ...

  7. Developing a Clostridium molecular toolkit for bioconversion of food waste

    SBC: SYNVITROBIO, INC.            Topic: A17AT011

    Waste generation at forward bases creates significant challenges; its disposal presents an economic cost with no direct benefit and its accumulation or burning is a health hazard. The bioconversion of waste into useful compounds could save thousands annually for every soldier and tens of millions in capital expenditure. However, widespread adoption is impeded by low conversion efficiency. We propo ...

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

    SBC: Directed Vapor Technologies International, Inc.            Topic: A17AT013

    Smart textile technologies with advanced functionalities (e.g., sensing, physical actuation) are being developed for military and civilian applications. These products have, to date, been powered by conventional energy storage systems that can significantly limit the multi-functional aspects of product design. Next generation products are envisioned that rely on integrated energy storage technolog ...

  9. Biosensor for Detection of Synthetic Cannabinoids

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX, INC.            Topic: A17AT014

    Recreational drug use by military personnel can impact soldier preparedness and performance especially in difficult and demanding environments. One challenge for monitoring illicit drug use is that current tests rely on the identification of specific chemical structures. Small variants in the chemistry of a drug can evade detection. In this Phase I SBIR, we will develop a lateral flow test that ...

  10. Method for Locally Measuring Strength of a Polymer-Inorganic Interface During Cure and Aging

    SBC: SURFORCE, LLC            Topic: A17AT016

    Achieving strong and durable polymer adhesion to inorganic substrates under various environmental conditions is challenging. The required long-term durability tests are over long time- and length-scales, beyond the capability of current modeling, and extensive experimental testing is needed. Currently, no commercially available method exists for monitoring how a polymer/substrate system evolves du ...
