  1. Scalable Manufacturing of Functional Yarns for Textile-based Energy Storage

    SBC: Natural Fiber Welding, Inc.            Topic: A17AT013

    Natural fiber welding (NFW) is a disruptive bioengineering platform that has broad applications to manufacturing high performance materials and composites from abundant natural materials.By careful control of NFW process conditions, native order and structure of biopolymers is retained thus creating strong composites without glue while preserving the impressive native physical characteristics of f ...

  2. High-Speed Image Processing in Heavily Degraded Environments Using a Machine Learning Classifier

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A17046

    Driving ground vehicles in heavily degraded visual environments brings significant risk since course corrections cannot be made safely without visual cues. Infrared imagery can improve visibility in degraded visual environments, however when heavily degraded, this method alone is insufficient. Obscurants and noise can be rapidly categorized and suppressed in real-time by having an artificial intel ...

  3. Multi-Spectral Threat Warning Adjunct Sensor

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: A17052

    EPIR and Brimrose propose to design and fabricate multiband infrared adjunct (MIRA) sensors to enhance the detection/identification capability of the existing aviation-threat warning systems. Four spectrometers, arranged in a linear array, are designed to cover the wavelength range from ultraviolet to long-wave infrared. Each spectrometer is an integration of an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) ...

  4. Surface Haptic Technology for Geospatial Display

    SBC: Tanvas, Inc.            Topic: A15049

    The goal of this development effort is to provide warfighters with inexpensive methods to view geospatial intelligence information on a hand-held tablet through their sense of touch. This allows eyes-free and silent operation without generating light. This proposal deals with two surface haptic display technologies. Variable-friction displays create haptic effects by varying the coefficient of fri ...

  5. Scaling & Supramolecular Engineering of Metal-Organic Frameworks (MOFs)

    SBC: NuMat Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT014

    Metal-organic frameworks (MOFs) are adsorbents that show promise in toxic chemical remediation, medical oxygen storage, high-value gas recovery, and multiple other military and civilian applications. However, a lack of quality-controlled supply limits these materials to laboratory environments. This work will borrow from industrial Quality practices to ensure supplied material conforms to specific ...

  6. Adaptation of Ferrium M54 for personal armor

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A16065

    QuesTek Innovations will continue to pursue its approach of ausforming Ferrium M54 to adapt it for personal armor applications. Technical feasibility was demonstrated during the Phase I program through novel material processing at an intermediate scale, characterization, and testing. Phase II will involve full scale production of material as well as the development of process-structure-property re ...

  7. Colloidal Quantum Dots for Cost Reduction in EO/IR Detectors for Infrared Imaging

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: A17029

    Technical Abstract (200 word limit):While state-of-the-art microbolometers demonstrate impressive capabilities for low-cost uncooled long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging, there is currently a need for low-cost, mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) imaging systems capable of high performance with fast frame rates at high operating temperatures. HgTe colloidal quantum dot (CQD) focal plane arrays (FPAs ...

  8. Formulation and testing of an entirely wood-based exterior insulation board for the high-performance building market

    SBC: GO Lab Inc.            Topic: 17NCER6B

    The goal of this project is the formulation a rigid, insulating, low-density wood composite, with physical and thermal properties comparable to fossil fuel derived foams. _x000D_ _x000D_ To achieve energy conservation standards mandated by certification agencies such as Passive House and LEED, high performance buildings require multiple shells of insulation – an inner shell that contains electri ...

  9. Extended Short-Wavelength Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPA) for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: A16042

    Hyperspectral imaging at full short- and extended short-wavelength infrared spectral band (0.92.5 m) has important military applications. When used for imaging, a SWIR camera can operate at night using light reflected off the subject in the scene, generating high resolution images with details such as shadows and surface roughness. Compared to thermal infrared imaging, SWIR images look more like v ...

  10. High Speed Low Loss Quantum Optical Switch for 1550nm band

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A16095

    Optical switches that are simultaneously fast (sub-nanosecond), low loss (< 1 dB), and add low noise (< 10^-5 added noise photons per mode) are not available commercially, but would be an important tool for manipulating quantum signals. It is important for such a switch to operate near 1550 nm, as this is the lowest loss wavelength in standard optical fibers and as such is desirable for distributi ...
