  1. Epitaxial GaN on Flexible Metal Tapes for Low-Cost Transistor Devices

    SBC: IBEAM MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0000941

    GaN-based devices are the basis of a variety of modern electronics applications, especially in optoelectronics and high-frequency / high-power electronics. These devices are based on epitaxial films grown on single-crystal wafers. The single-crystal wafer substrates are limiting because of their size, expense, mechanical properties and availability. If one could make GaN-based devices over large a ...

  2. Retrofittable and Transparent Super-Insulator for Single-Pane Windows

    SBC: NANOSD, INC.            Topic: DEFOA0001429

    NanoSD, Inc. with its partners will develop a transparent, nanostructured thermally insulating film that can be applied to existing single-pane windows to reduce heat loss. To produce the nanostructured film, the team will create hollow ceramic or polymer nanobubbles and consolidate them into a dense lattice structure using heat and compression. Because it is mostly air, the resulting nanobubble s ...

  3. Context-driven Active-sensing for Repair Tasks II (CART II)

    SBC: DYNAMIC OBJECT LANGUAGE LABS, INC.            Topic: ST14B003

    Existing machine perception systems are too inflexible, and are not robust enough to environmental uncertainty. In existing systems, perception components are statically (and manually) configured to process sensor data. The parameters of components in such a system are also statically tuned to operate optimally under very specific conditions. Information flow in such systems is bottom up, and gene ...

  4. Revolutionary Airlift Innovation

    SBC: Logistic Gliders Inc.            Topic: ST14B004

    We propose to mature LG-X glider technology by manufacturing full-scaled prototypes and characterizing them in land-based flight-testing by using commercial aircraft to drop the gliders. Validated components such as the landing parachute, folding wing mechanism, and autopilot control system will undergo integrated flight-testing. Logistic Gliders will provide a considerable cost share to support ...

  5. Data Driven Intent Recognition Framework

    SBC: Other Lab Inc.            Topic: NSF13599

    A critical aspect of exoskeleton control that has to date introduced a performance limitation is the ability of the exoskeleton to recognize the intent of the operator so it can apply assistance to their desired motion. This intent recognition effort is typically solved using ad-hoc methods where subject matter experts make design decisions and tune transitions to identify intended maneuvers as re ...

  6. MK III Upper Extremity Exoskeleton

    SBC: Ekso Bionics Inc            Topic: 739552

    As the carry and protective gear of the modern war fighter increases, the burden on the human body will necessarily increase. In our present TALOS MkIII project, we are developing lower body augmentation to preserve speed and agility while bearing this weight. Yet we cannot ignore the impact of this weight on the upper body: in this project we propose to develop an upper body exoskeleton with p ...

  7. Forecasting Dynamic Group Behavior in Social Media

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: ST12B002

    Organized groups are become increasingly adept at using social media to influence public discourse. The fast pace and global reach of social media allow groups for form and mobilize in minutes and dissolve as rapidly as they appeared. In Phase I, we 1)

  8. Optical Refrigeration for Dramatically Improved Cryogenic Technology

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: AF10BT02

    Solid-state refrigerators, which are compact and produce no vibrations, are ideal for many electronics and sensor applications. Currently, the dominant solid-state cooling technology is thermoelectric cooling, which uses the electrical Peltier effect. Despite decades of effort, the lowest achievable temperature for multi-stage thermoelectric coolers (TECs) is around 170 K. ThermoDynamic Films, LLC ...

  9. Multiferroic Materials for RF Applications

    SBC: Winchester Technologies, LLC            Topic: ST13B003

    This DARPA STTR Phase II project is focused on novel voltage-tunable multiferroic heterostructures and components. Deliverables include: (1) liquid-phase epitaxial growth ferrite/ferroelectric heterostructures with strong magnetoelectric coupling; (2) voltage-tunable multiferroic inductors and transformers with large tunable inductance range of 2/1 and high quality factor > 20 within UHF (0.3GHz ~ ...

  10. A High-Level Operator Abstraction for GPU Graph Analytics

    SBC: Royal Caliber            Topic: ST13B004

    We are proposing a new software framework for analyzing very large graphs using massively parallel processors (GPUs). This framework will be commercialized on a cloud platform that gives users immediate access to highly advanced big-data analytics through a user-friendly web interface, as well as an HTTP API for easy integration. The platform can be deployed on a private cloud if desired. The sy ...
