  1. Miniature UV Sources for Imaging Applications

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: SB101009

    DARPA is interested in advanced UV laser technology for development of miniature UV 3D LIDARs. UV sources are preferred for seeing through many natural and man made obscurants. Princeton Optronics proposes to develop a miniature UV source at wavelength below 300nm by pumping a solid state laser gain medium with VCSEL array and frequency convert the laser beam to UV frequency. With this approach ...

  2. Biometric-based Computer Authentication during Mission Oriented Protective Posture Scenarios

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: OSD10IA5

    Military Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) gear level IV is the most protective full-protection chemical protective gear for warfighters against chemical and biological threats. However, it is the most encumbered and inhibiting to the warfighter"s movement, visual horizon, and finger dexterity. Here, we propose a novel and continuous biometric-based system that provides a warfighter, in full prot ...

  3. Unique, Highly IR- and Visible-Reflective, Highly Stretchable Membranes For Reflective Sights, Adapted From IR Electrochromics Technology

    SBC: Ashwin-Ushas Corporation            Topic: SB072036

    In prior, unrelated work at this firm in IR electrochromics, unique, highly flexible/stretchable Au-coated membranes have been developed which have very high IR reflectance (nearly 100% in the 2.5 to 25 micron region) as well as Vis-NIR reflectance (ca. 99% in the 0.5 to 2.5 micron region). These membranes show no effects of extreme physical abuse (bending, flexing, stretching, dropping, shock) a ...

  4. Ultra-fast, High Saturation Current, InGaAs/InP Photodetectors

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: ST051007

    In Phase II, we propose to develop high saturation current photodiodes that will meet the following design criteria: (a) Responsivity > 0.65 A/W, (b) 1 dB compression current > 100 mA, (c) Bandwidth DC to 18 GHz,(d) Wavelength response of 1300 to 1550 nm, and (e) OIP3 of +50 dBm. Three different photodiode designs will be tested for maximum saturation current: Partially Depleted Absorber (PDA), D ...

  5. Multilayer Stacks for Super-resolution Imaging

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: SB052001

    Scientists have made a lot of efforts to achieve subwavelength imaging or super-resolution imaging with a slab of metal film or layered materials. Generally it is hard to obtain images with resolution finer than the wavelength of light. Layered materials recently were proposed to realize the super-resolution imaging in the near field. In this SBIR program, we will carry out theoretical and experim ...

  6. Handheld Transcription Device for the Hearing Impaired

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: SB072014

    The purpose of this proposal is to present a unique and promising solution for a handheld device for hearing impaired individuals. In a conversation situation with multiple English speakers, the device will display on a screen, “Speaker 1: …,” “Speaker 2: …,” …, “Speaker N: …,” and all the English conversation will be transcribed into English text. Our novel solution consists o ...

  7. Rapid, Non-Invasive Radiation Bio-Dosimeter

    SBC: MENSSANA RESEARCH INC            Topic: SB052007

    The technical problem: In the event of a terrorist attack with a “dirty bomb”, there would be an urgent need to distinguish between those who have and have not been exposed to radiation, in order to perform rapid triage. First responders and emergency health workers would require a biological dosimetric test for radiation exposure that is rapid, accurate, and non-invasive. The opportunity: a m ...

  8. Energy Storage Systems for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Fuceltech Inc            Topic: SB072041

    Electric propulsion aircrafts such is HALE (high altitude, long endurance) would need medium power fuel cells of high efficiency with very high specific energy. The fuel cells should also act as electrolyzers to convert the solar cell energy during daytime operation into fuel for the system for the night time operation. The system should be operational for many years delivering power over a long d ...
