  1. High Velocity Insensitive Launch Systems

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: SB112002

    Streamline Automation, LLC., is proposing a development program designed to explore the feasibility of achieving hyperkinetic launch capability with a novel electro-thermal gun concept. The new launch system will be insensitive materials compliant, will employ a highly efficient trigger technology which will simplify system design and operation and enable energy conversion efficiencies two to thre ...

  2. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB092002

    The demand for renewable energy is motivating R & D efforts toward the development of novel photovoltaic (PV) technology. Efficient and low cost solar cells will have an important role in defense applications particularly powering portable electronic de-vices. Current solar cells based on single crystal silicon are still not at a level to be cost effective when compared to other forms of electrica ...

  3. Design of Acoustic Metamaterials for Passive Hearing Protector

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB103006

    CFDRC proposes to develop new acoustic metamaterials, more specifically Locally Resonant Sonic Materials (LRSM), to be used in passive Hearing Protection Devices (HPD). LRSM derive their unique properties from resonators contained within each unit cell. Sound attenuation of finite size of LRSM is determined by the interaction of an incident elastic pulse with the resonators within the unit cells. ...

  4. Nonlinear Plasmonic Devices

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB082001

    Surface plasmons (SPs) have been studied by a wide spectrum of scientists, ranging from physicists, chemists and materials scientists to biologists. Plasmonics represents an opportunity to develop a new class of photonic devices by concentrating and channeling light using subwavelength structures. Such circuits would first convert light into SPs, which would then propagate and be processed by lo ...

  5. Nanoelectrokinetic, Label-free Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemical Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB072001

    We propose to develop a novel nanofluidic, label-free sensor to detect the presence of ultra-low levels of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) in aqueous environmental samples. The envisioned handheld sensor will be hand-portable, be ruggedly constructed, support remote operation and be UAV-mountable. Our sensor exploits novel features of AC electrokinetics, made possible only when the channel dimen ...

  6. Design of Negative Index Metamaterials for the Visible Spectrum

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072035

    Optical imaging systems are used extensively in everyday life for military and civilian applications. Just like any other technology there is always a push to improve the performance over what is the current state of the art. Unfortunately, all optical systems are constrained by the fundamental limit of diffraction. This constraint limits the resolution of a system to approximately half of the ...

  7. Opto-Mechanical Modeling of Low Cost, High Precision, Micro Components for Fiber Optic Gyroscopes

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB052002

    Previous investigations into the geometrical and polarization properties of spiraled bend insensitive optical fiber layers indicate that coils made of many such layers can potentially facilitate inexpensive, high accuracy fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG). The proposed research will assess the theoretical and empirical behavior of both spiraled layers and coils through both modeling and experimentatio ...

  8. Self-Aware Reconstituion, Reconfiguration, and Repurposing (SAR3)

    SBC: Sentar, Inc.            Topic: SB072009

    In today’s information-based society, global operation in virtually any domain is significantly, if not completely, dependent upon high-performance processing systems. These high-performance processing systems are complex and frequently composed of heterogeneous processor subsystems. Such systems are typically static in nature, and predetermined prior to deployment. If mission dynamics or s ...
