  1. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. The proposal constitutes a logical continuation of Phase I effort where the main focus was on the detailed design of the PCSS/laser diode array (LDA) integrated architecture. In Phase II ...

  2. Tunable High-Power Infrared Lasers for Standoff Detection Applications

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: A14AT015

    To achieve the goals of this program improving spectral coverage and output power of monolithic QCL sources - we propose to develop in collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory a broadly tunable high power source that is based on Eos proprietary QCL array technology. The current generation of Eos commercially available fully packaged QCLAs (The Matchbox) can be tuned over a wavelength range of u ...

  3. Detecting Substandard, Nonconforming, Improperly Processed and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Ocean Bay Information and Systems Management, LLC            Topic: DLA15C001

    "Micro-calorimetry is a Nondestructive Test (NDT) capable of detecting heat characteristics that could identify improperly processed, counterfeit, substandard, nonconforming or fake raw material prior to materials introduction into end-product production cycles. Current calorimetric technology is an extremely sensitive, expensive and time consuming process, utilizing an adiabatic or semi-adiabat ...

  4. Conductive Transmissive Coating for Enhanced-Absorption Thin Film Solar Cells

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A15AT016

    Thin-film, lightweight, large-area flexible inorganic solar cells have shown promise to meet the militarys remote power needs on the battlefield. However, thin film solar cells normally have inferior conversion efficiencies due to limited absorption of sunlight by the thin active layer. Various approaches have been investigated to improve conversion efficiencies of thin film solar cells. Among the ...

  5. Miniature Mass Spectrometer for Peptide Sequencing and Mobile Coupling with Separation Techniques

    SBC: Bayspec, Inc.            Topic: A16AT012

    Using advanced ion optics that was developed by Pacific Northwest National Laboratory (PNNL), BaySpec will develop a prototype of portable mass spectrometer (less than 40 lb. and 300W) with continuous atmospheric pressure inlet that is fully capable of uninterrupted on-line sampling from an ambient environment. The continuous nature of the inlet ensures full compatibility with separation technique ...

  6. Using Magnetic Levitation for Non-Destructive Detection of Defective and Counterfeit Materiel

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: DLA15C001

    The introduction of substandard or counterfeit materials into the DoD supply chain can have extremely expensive, and potentially life threatening, consequences. Current techniques used to detect nonconforming materiel can be destructive (e.g., manual sectioning and inspection of a part), time consuming and expensive (e.g., micro-computed tomography, ultrasound), or provide only limited informatio ...

  7. Nanostructured conductive transparent coatings

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A15AT016

    Triton Systems, Inc. and its academic partner are proposing to fabricate an innovative highly conductive and transmissive thin layer to replace ITO on large area, lightweight solar cells. Part of the proposed approach will be to texture the surface of the coating to improve light transmission into the solar cell. Triton will work with a manufacturer of flexible solar panels for the Army, who wil ...

  8. Acoustically/Vibrationally Enhanced High Frequency Electromagnetic Detector for Buried Landmines

    SBC: AKELA INC            Topic: A16AT004

    Laboratory investigations have suggested that acoustically or vibrationally inducing motion in buried targets can aid in improving target detectability through a characteristic response related to differential target motion. This gain is realized by adding an additional degree of freedom, modulation due to motion in the GPR return signal, to use as a discriminating feature. The AKELA team is propo ...

  9. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  10. Paper test cards for detection of illicit narcotic and cannabinioid drugs

    SBC: VURONYX TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A16AT008

    Vuronyx Technologies and Prof. Marya Lieberman at the University of Notre Dame will develop paper analytical devices (idPADs) to presumptively identify illicit drugs. All the reagents needed to perform twelve different chemical color tests are stored on the idPAD. The user rubs the powder to be tested across the PAD, then dips the PAD in water to activate the tests. Within five minutes, a color ...
