  1. 3D Tip Characterization and Surface Reconstruction

    SBC: Nanometrology International, Inc.            Topic: 9070168TT

    Nanometrology International, Inc. (NMI) proposes to demonstrate the feasibility of 3-dimensional (3D) characterization of nanoscale objects using scanning probe microscopy (SPM) with a measurement uncertainty of less than 0.7 nm. To accomplish this task, we propose a novel method of 3D tip characterization and use of an innovative surface reconstruction algorithm recently introduced by NIST and th ...

  4. Miniature, Portable, Device to Detect and Monitor Coagulopathy

    SBC: NANOMASON INC.            Topic: N10AT043

    Conventional coagulation tests use an isolated portion of the blood coagulation cycle to assess blood function by activating pathways of the cycle via chemical additives. Thromboelastography (TEG) is an effective tool for monitoring the entire coagulation cycle as a whole from a physical standpoint i.e. from the clot formation to fibrinolysis. Information about the quality and dynamics of clot for ...

  5. Ultra Wide Field of View Night Vision Goggles with Spherical Sensing

    SBC: InterScience, Inc.            Topic: N10BT049

    The currently fielded AN/AVS-9 night vision goggles (NVG) for use by air crew with a 40degrees Field of View (FOV) creates the so-call soda straw-effect that significantly hinders situational awareness desired for many types of missions. This FOV restriction limit has been identified as a causal factor in numerous aviation mishaps. Recognizing the needs for expanding FOV on NVG, we propose to deve ...

  6. Plasmonic Enhancement of Receiver Circuits for Energy Harvesting

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N11AT003

    Nanohmics and Professor Gennady Shvets at the University of Texas at Austin propose to develop a Multi-Spectral RectennaTM (MSR) composed of a large area flexible sheet of plasmonic absorber structures coupled to an advanced scintered nanoparticle diode junction material. The resulting film would generate rectified current vertically, from the plasmonic strips to the underlying mirror layer, enabl ...

  7. Modeling of pulse propagation in a four level atomic medium for gyroscopic measurements

    SBC: Rochester Optical Manufacturing Company            Topic: N11AT005

    A detail computational model is important in the construction and optimization of a slow-light gyroscope. Such a model needs to take into account many physical conditions such as Doppler broadening and cavity boundary conditions. As a result, the computational cost and resources for a full model can become very demanding even for today"s powerful computing capabilities. The proposed effort develop ...

  8. Specialized Analysis, Modeling, and Optimization Tools for the Development of Innovative WDM Local Area Networks

    SBC: RSOFT DESIGN GROUP            Topic: N11AT008

    We proposed to perform innovative research towards the developing of a simulation tool consisting of a comprehensive set of models and including modeling techniques that account for the complex interactions between optical network components in WDM LANs, such as those planned for aerospace platforms. To a large extent, the modeling effort will be guided by the ongoing work of the AS-3 WDM LAN work ...

  9. Mitigation of Fuel Tank Explosion and Fires Using a Hybrid Electrochemical Oxygen Extraction and Explosion Suppression Foam system

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N11AT013

    Explosion of military vehicle fuel tanks upon encountering an Improvised Explosive Device (IED) causes significant damage to both military personnel and equipment. The fuel tank explosion is caused by explosive buildup and combustion of fuel vapor within the tank headspace. Further damage is also caused by projectile penetration of the fuel tank, resulting in spraying of the superheated fuel onto ...

  10. Tunable Bandstop Filters for Suppression of Co-site Interference and Jamming Sources

    SBC: INDIANA MICROELECTRONICS, LLC            Topic: N11AT016

    This proposal seeks to develop novel, widely tunable bandstop filters for the suppression of co-site interference in next generation phased array radar and electronic warfare systems. The filters are based upon highly loaded evanescent mode cavity resonators that are integrated into standard printed circuit board substrates. This integration and design strategy yields high resonator Q performance ...
