  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  3. Thermal Enhancements for Separable Thermal Mechanical Interfaces

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131077

    ABSTRACT: The purpose of the proposed SBIR program is to develop a thermally enhanced, separable thermal mechanical interface (STMI) that aims to significantly enhance heat transfer by providing a direct thermal path from the high power density components to the heat sink. In the current commercial off-the-shelf STMI multiple interfaces significantly increase the thermal resistance resulting in ...

  4. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to implement a series of mechanical and optical sensor measurements in a wind tunnel test section to isolate aero-optical disturbances from contaminating tunnel disturbances. We will develop a design for the necessary sensors and the number/location of these sensors on the tunnel observation windows. Particular attention will be ...

  5. Real-time Location of Targets in Cluttered Environments

    SBC: REMCOM, INC.            Topic: AF12BT05

    ABSTRACT: A high-fidelity computational electromagnetic solution will be developed that directly solves Maxwell"s equations in order to calculate radar returns from complex, electrically large objects in motion, such as wind turbines with rotating blades. The solution will include propagation effects from terrain and atmosphere, multipath between object parts, and the details of interior and ext ...

  6. Adaptive multi-sensor wide area situational awareness system

    SBC: Neya Systems, LLC            Topic: AF12BT14

    ABSTRACT: Confronted by a vast quantity of data, presented piecemeal, sporadically and at varying levels of detail, the human analyst is often overwhelmed when trying to effectively monitor even medium-sized areas of interest. Offline, there is a wealth of data, resolution, and time to pick through and find activities of interest. Given a large amount of high resolution data, we can simulate situ ...

  8. Scalable Conjunction Processing using Spatiotemporally Indexed Ephemeris Data

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: AF112050

    ABSTRACT: Stellar Science has developed innovative techniques for satellite conjunction processing using spatiotemporally indexed ephemeris data. Our algorithms first insert each satellite into a spatially aware data structure, such as a K-D Tree or a Spatial Hash Table, and then it scans the data structure looking for satellite conjunctions. While traditional approaches to satellite conjunctio ...
