  1. Passivation Innovations for Large Format Reduced Pixel pitch strained layer superlattice Focal Plane Array Imagers Operating in the Long Wavelength In

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08103

    A novel surface passivation technique is proposed for InAs/GaInSb-based strained layer superlattice focal plane arrays with a pitch of 15 µm or less. Buffered oxide and sulfur-based surface treatments prior to dielectric deposition are proposed as the most suitable and chemically stable surface treatments. Both processes result in the removal of elemental oxides, while the latter additionally pro ...

  2. Design and Development of a New Titanium Alloy with Improved Near-Net-Shape Formability

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A08050

    In this Phase I SBIR program, QuesTek proposes to apply its Materials by Design® technology to the design and development of a new castable titanium alloy. Microstructural concepts for the alloy design will focus on improved castability (near-net-shape formability), improved mechanical strength (including fatigue strength), and lower cost relative to the existing aerospace-grade Ti-6Al-4V alloy. ...

  3. Experimental and Computational Program for Slow and Fast Cookoff for Insensitive Munitions Testing

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A08027

    We propose a joint experimental and computational program to predict the behavior of heterogeneous energetic materials, specifically the properties and dynamics of their initiation, during slow and fast cookoff for insensitive munitions testing. The experimental effort will involve gram-scale fast and slow cookoff experiments in fully instrumented test cells, allowing for spatial and temporal reso ...

  4. Compact quantitative near infrared device for combat casualty care

    SBC: I.S.S (USA), Inc.            Topic: A08119

    The early recognition of severe hemorrhage is a key factor towards reducing mortality and morbidity from battlefield insults. Although near-infrared (NIR) instruments have shown promise in recognizing hemorrhage, specific confounding factors must be solved to be reliable in early hemorrhage. Our hypothesis is that these confounding factors can be eliminated by proper light-tissue interaction mod ...

  5. Neutron Radiography for Complementary Non-Destructive Evaluation/Testing for Stockpile Reliability Programs of U.S. Army Tactical Missile Systems

    SBC: Starfire Industries LLC            Topic: A08028

    Neutron Radiography (NR) is a non-destructive evaluation/non-destructive testing technique that is an ideal complement to current x-ray techniques because of differences in how neutrons interact with matter; providing superior contrast for imaging lightweight organic materials, especially adhesives, propellants, liners, and composite materials. Complimentary neutron-based imaging for energetic mu ...

  6. Main Rotor Weight Reduction and Performance Enhancement via the use of Carburized, High-Strength, Secondary Hardening Steel

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A08024

    Main rotor shafts, specifically those used on the CH-47, are among the largest, heaviest, and highly loaded single components on rotorcraft. As the materials technology used in these shafts are decades old, (carburized 9310) there exists an opportunity to redesign the component with state-of-the-art materials technology and reduce component weight 20-25%. Carburizing alloys available today may als ...

  7. Automatic Identification & Mitigation of Unauthorized Information Leaking from Enterprise Networks

    SBC: SALARE SECURITY, LLC            Topic: OSD08T001

    This proposal addresses research and development of a system that can automatically identify and mitigate data exfiltration (a.k.a data leakage) from unauthorized out-bound voice over IP (VoIP) traffic flows. The risk of data leakage over VoIP is growing because of the rapid deployment of VoIP systems and because data leakage via TCP/IP is becoming better defended. VoIP provides a new opportunit ...

  8. Super Hardened, EMI and Vibration Immune Chemical Biological Sensor

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08T027

    To satisfy Joint Services needs for the detection and identification of chemical and biological agents, infrared detectors must discriminate within a narrow spectral band tunable over large portions of the infrared spectrum. Currently, large, complex, power hungry and computationally intensive FTIR systems are used for this purpose. We propose here the integration of HgCdTe infrared emitter and de ...

  9. Bioinformatics-enabled wearable vital signs monitor for combat triage

    SBC: Venture Gain            Topic: A08T033

    Acute hemorrhage with subsequent shock remains a leading cause of battlefield mortality. It is the primary cause of death in approximately 30% of injured soldiers who die from wounds. Early diagnosis of the onset and severity of hemorrhagic shock is critical for providing effective combat triage and optimizing survival. This project will demonstrate the feasibility of applying a nonparametric, k ...

  10. Ultra-Low-Noise Infrared Detector Amplifier for Next Generation Standoff Detector

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08T017

    An ultra-low noise integrated circuit for mercury cadmium telluride (HgCdTe) infrared detectors is proposed. Noise reduction techniques such as active noise cancellation are commercially successful and have been implemented using silicon-based integrated circuits to reduce background and externally-induced noise. While silicon dominates infrared sensor readout electronics, silicon-based circuits h ...
