  1. A Multi-Representation Architecture for STEP AP210-based PCB Stackup Design and Warpage Analysis

    SBC: INTERCAX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    This effort creates foundations for highly automated simulation tools that predict warpage in printed circuit boards and assemblies (PCAs/PCBs) and chip packages. Our technique, MHS, provides core capabilities to automate warpage and other problems that were impractical until now. MHS extends a multi-representation approach the PI first conceived at Georgia Tech for CAD-CAE interoperability. This ...

  2. MAVIS: A Robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV

    SBC: ETOVIA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    We shall investigate, implement and demonstrate MAVIS, a 3D vision system incorporating robust Real-Time SFM for SMAV application scenarios. Automatic pose determination and extraction of 3D structure of the environment are critical to autonomous navigation and obstacle avoidance of SMAVs in constrained and crowded environments. Extracting such state information under various constraints (low qual ...

  3. Chemical and Explosive Vapor Detection in Shipping Containers with Remotely Accessed Microcantilever Array Sensors

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: SB041005

    The remarkable sensitivity, compactness, low cost, low power-consumption, scalability, and versatility of microcantilever sensors make this technology possibly the best solution for container screening. In Phase I, Nevada Nanotech Systems (NNTS) successfully demonstrated all components of a prototype sensor system for measuring the concentrations of unlawful or hazardous materials in shipping con ...

  4. Through-Wall Sensing (TWS) Technologies for Dismounted Infantry

    SBC: RADAR FLASHLIGHT, LLC            Topic: SB041022

    RADAR Flashlight, LLC (RFLLC), has successfully completed the Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) Phase I SBIR referenced in the title. RFLLC is now submitting a proposal to develop a demonstration prototype of the next geneeration RADAR Flashlight for use by warfighters to use in th Urban Warfare scenerio for clearing buildings. During the Phase I SBIR research program it was demo ...

  5. Integrated Optical Bus Interface Module

    SBC: T NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: SB041007

    The following phase II proposal is intended to further extend the dynamic range and reduce the form factor of the EA based transmitters fabricated during the phase I portion of this work. The dynamic range proposed and form factor proposed are in excess of any previously obtained and are crucial to future mixed signal WDM photonic systems.

  6. Silicon-Based Infrared Imaging Sensor

    SBC: IRIMSENS, LLC            Topic: SB062015

    A Phase I effort to investigate the use of poly-crystalline Ge-on-Si and strained SiGe alloy grown on silicon for near-infrared photodetectors is proposed. These devices are expected to cover the spectral band that stretches from a wavelength of 0.8 to 1.6 microns. If reasonable performance devices can be fabricated, this will potentially pave the way for the integration of signal processing e ...

  7. Adaptive Command and Collaboration within Network-Centric Operations using Insight from Contextualized Network Visualization, Analysis

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB043042

    The evolution of network-centric environments increasingly provides access to more data and collaborators relevant to decision making. Unfortunately, it also means the decision-maker increasingly needs to efficiently and effectively utilize that data in order to stay competitive. In network-centric warfare the consequences of less than optimal performance can be extremely serious. With the deploym ...

  8. Fundamental Interactions Generating Heterogeneous Teams including Robots (FIGHT-R)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB062009

    Fully autonomous, taskable robots for use in unconstrained environments are still a dream rather than a reality because of a host of problems, including capabilities of existing sensors, effectors, and control/planning software. Indeed, concepts of operations for robot use require that robots collaborate directly with humans, in relationships similar to bomb squad dogs. Fortunately, enough progres ...

  9. User-Defined Critics for Software Adaptation

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "This proposal investigates using a knowledge acquisition system called The Discovery MachineT to allow subject matter experts to construct critics to evolve software. As storage, memory, and processing speeds increase there is a push to evolve morecomplex software systems. This push arises from the desire to utilize untapped computational potential. Complex software development, however, is co ...

  10. Small, Heavy Fuel, Compression Ignition Small UAV Engines

    SBC: GSE, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "Air Vehicles that are able to fly autonomously into confined spaces, land, shutdown, collect information, restart, and return to base, present an interesting propulsion challenge. Critical requirements of the propulsion system include:¿ Extremely high power per unit weight and per unit volume,¿ Extremely reliable, compact, and lightweight starting system¿ High fuel efficiency¿ Mult ...
