  1. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  2. Pulsed Focusing Recirculating Linacs for Muon Acceleration

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 49a

    Neutrino Factories and Muon Colliders require rapid acceleration of short-lived muons to multi-GeV and TeV energies. Recirculating Linear Accelerators (RLA) can provide exceptionally fast and economical acceleration, mainly limited only by the extent of the focusing range of the RLA quadrupols, since each muon must pass several times through each high-gradient cavity. However, the technical feasib ...

  3. Viscous Cartesian Flow Solver with AMR Capabilities for Automated Flow Simulation

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T008

    The goal of this project is to develop and leverage the novel Normal Ray Refinement (NRR) methodology investigated in Phase I, and to apply it to an efficient and robust prototype adaptive Cartesian solver for automated simulations of viscous flows. The NRR approach will provide a substantial reduction in the number of grid points in viscous boundary layers and will employ adaptive normal ray plac ...

  4. Photonic Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF07T028

    Analog-to-digital conversion (ADC) is an essential operation in many applications including radar, sensing, communications, and instrumentation. Two key parameters of an ADC are its sampling rate and resolution, measured in samples per second and number of bits, respectively. Unfortunately, as the sampling rate increases the maximum resolution is reduced. High-speed electronic ADCs (>10 GS/s) are ...

  5. Ultra-Low-Noise Infrared Detector Amplifier for Next Generation Standoff Detector

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08T017

    This project aims to design, fabricate and characterize ultra-low-noise amplifiers for HgCdTe infrared detectors by using low-noise transistors as the active device and implementing novel noise cancellation schemes to reduce the noise figure of the amplif

  6. Optimization of Strain Balanced Heterostructures for High Power 4-5 Micron Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A04T012

    The mid-infrared (3-5 micron) spectral region is filled with possibilities for laser applications, but most lasers in this wavelength are bulky and/or require cryogenic cooling. The quantum cascade laser is a compact, diode-based laser technology that has the potential for high power operation at room temperature. In this proposal, we outline a plan for development of short wavelength (lambda < ...

  7. Bioinformatics-enabled wearable vital signs monitor for combat triage

    SBC: Venture Gain            Topic: A08T033

    Our goal is a wearable device-and-algorithm platform for real-time predictive assessment of health status, namely progression of hypovolemia and onset-risk of cardiovascular collapse, to facilitate improved triage of combat-related trauma. This involves

  8. Analysis & Adaptation of Advanced Fischer Tropsch Catalyst Structures and Resulting BOP Reductions to Fulfill Future Navy Fuel Needs

    SBC: INTRAMICRON INC            Topic: N07T027

    In the Phase I study, IntraMicron found that Microfibrous Entrapped Catalysts (MFEC) increased effective thermal conductivity by 3~12 times, improved selectivity and product yield, and significantly reduced the Balance of Plant (BOP) compared with packed beds; Ceramatec prepared novel catalysts for highly selective jet fuel production and designed a FTS modular reactor with fast external heat tran ...

  9. Hydrogen Cryostat for Muon Beam Cooling

    SBC: MUONS INC            Topic: 04b

    75497-Ionization cooling, a method for shrinking the size of a muon beam, is needed for muon colliders and neutrino factories, two options for future High Energy Physics facilities. Hydrogen is needed in these applications for several reasons, but a safe and efficient containment cryostat is a prerequisite for its use. This project will develop a single hydrogen system to provide ionization ene ...

  10. An Integrated Optimization System for Lightening the Load of Warfighters

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N08T019

    Warfighters rely on technological equipment to ensure safety, mission effectiveness, and situational awareness. This equipment increases the capabilities of warfighters but also adds to their weight burden. This excess load could cause significant stress on the musculoskeletal system and lead to physiological deficits. The overall objective of the proposed project is to develop a system-level opti ...
