  1. Induced Local EMP and Secondary THz Radiation in Sensor Window Materials from Intense Femtosecond Pulses at Long Range

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB022022

    When high power femtosecond laser pulses are launched in the air, they self-generate long high intensity filaments over hundreds of meters. The initial near IR laser pulse is transformed into a super broad laser pulse spanning from the UV to the IR. Important DoD and Homeland Defense applications include the remote detection of biological warfare agents as well as jamming sensors. However, for any ...

  2. Alternative Transducers for Handheld Automatic Speech Recognition in Military Environments

    SBC: MAYUR TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: SB031007

    The DARPA Phraselator currently deployed in overseas military operations is capable of translating spoken English language phrases into audible Pashto, Urdu, Dari, and Arabic language phrases. Although usable, the Phraselator is highly vulnerable to typical military environment noise resulting in significant loss of accuracy due to the limitations of existing microphone technology. Therefore the ...

  4. Crossover-Free Fiber Optic Gyroscope Micro-Sensor Coils

    SBC: MORGAN RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: SB031002

    Morgan Research Corporation proposes to combine crossover-free fiber winding techniques with the selection of optimal SM fibers, high quality coil form materials, and ideal adhesives to produce an enhanced Crossover-Free Micro Sensor Coil. The crossover-free winding configuration also includes built-in thermal symmetry, which greatly reduces both the radial and axial components of time-varying the ...

  5. Novel Sensors and Signal Processing for Detecting and Classifying Combatants Operating in Urbanized Terrain

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB031014

    The purpose of this project is to perform system analysis, system design and system test of an UltraWideband (UWB) mono-, bi- and multi-static radar surveillance system. Dismounts moving though the system would be detected, their location determined, their motion tracked, and alarms generated. Because of its LPI/LPD qualities, a UWB system would also be covert. Such a system is important becaus ...

  6. Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL)

    SBC: Systems & Processes Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB032039

    The Systems and Process Engineering Corporation (SPEC) will develop the Individual Soldier LADAR (ISL) which will use a proven high accuracy phase detected range circuit to determine range profiling to 1/8-inch accuracy. This circuit allows the ISL to operate as a Class I eye-safe device and still achieve the needed range. The ISL also utilizes ultra short pulse lengths, allowing improved signal ...

  7. A Novel Integrated Emotional State Recognition System Using 3D Imaging and Thermal Analysis

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: SB032038

    A critical drawback of existing automatic facial expression classification, gesture analysis, and emotional state recognition technology is the lack of integrated and complimentary measurement modalities to perform reliable cognitive and emotional state assessment in operational environment. The purpose of this SBIR is to develop a novel, integrated sensor that incorporates three sensing modaliti ...

  8. Cognitive Processing Hardware Elements

    SBC: HOPLITE SYSTEMS LLC.            Topic: SB041019

    Hoplite Systems LLC proposes to implement the Soar cognitive architecture within a Field Programmable Gate Array (FPGA). This system, called the RAISE (Reconfigurable Architecture for Improved Soar Execution) will demonstrate that an FPGA's parallel, reconfigurable, multi-clock capabilities enable significantly better Soar processing performance than a traditional CPU. Hoplite will also develop ...

  9. Hardware Architectures for Flexible Component-Based Hybrid Cognitive Systems

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB041019

    Creating a realization of cognitive processes, reasoning, and behavior is a challenging problem due to its size, scope and complexity. Current realizations of cognitive systems are software based and typically implemented on conventional von Neumann processors. However, performance is a constraining factor in applications that require extensive testing, training and learning as well as in the im ...

  10. Multi-GHz InP TFT

    SBC: Lightspin Technologies Inc            Topic: ST041005

    This project proposes design, construction and demonstration of a new type of thin-film transistor (TFT), based on indium phosphide compound semiconductors. Models predict unity power gain and unity current gain (fT and fmax) above 10 GHz for the new TFTs in a polycrystalline form compatible with large-area deposition & patterning on flexible metal foils or polymer sheets, using low cost, large (> ...
