  1. CMOS Compatible Active Silicon Nanophotonic Devices and Systems


    In this STTR effort, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI), in collaboration with our academic and industrial partners will design, develop, and demonstrate a more efficient and compact, silicon optical modulator based on nanoscale photonic structures that is completely compatible with standard CMOS processing. The structures developed will form the building blocks for a family of devices b ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Dual-Functionality Laser System for High-Contrast Diagnostic Imaging and Precision Surgery

    SBC: LIGHT AGE, INC.            Topic: A08T038

    We will develop a dual-functionality laser system that enables precise tissue imaging (diagnostic mode), and ultra-precise tissue excision, down to the cellular level (surgical mode). For diagnostics, the laser operates in the near-infrared, enabling opto

  4. Computer Aided Design for Rapid Development of Novel Optical Materials and Sensors

    SBC: SIMPHOTEK, INC.            Topic: AF07T029

    Sophisticated optical computer-aided-design (CAD) software is needed to greatly reduce the time and money required to design new optical materials and devices.  For example, new optical materials are desired in order to protect personnel and sensors from intense laser beams.  Many other military and non-military applications, such as laser communications, light-based medical diagnostics and ther ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. High-Bandwidth High-Resolution Sensor for Hypersonic Flows


    There is the need for new diagnostic instrumentation capable of detailed hypersonic flow field characterization with spatial resolution of order 1 mm3 and temporal bandwidth of order MHz. In this proposal Princeton Scientific Instruments, in collaboration with the Ohio State University Gas Dynamics and Turbulence Laboratory, offers a novel solution based on PSI's recently developed Ultra High Fra ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Precision Stabilization of a Ball Joint Gimbaled (BJG) Mirror

    SBC: D & S CONSULTANTS, INC.            Topic: N07T007

    In Phase I, DSCI developed an approach for achieving precision stabilization of a ball joint gimbaled (BJG) mirror by providing the control system with a direct, high precision measurement of the angular position of the BJG mirror. This is accomplished by means of a novel, wide-field-of-regard (WFOR) optical tilt sensor. Combining the precise, but lower bandwidth, tilt sensor feedback with the h ...
