  1. SBIR Phase I: Vacuum Glass for R10 Windows

    SBC: V-Glass LLC            Topic: 10a

    The one remaining barrier to achieving a marketable R-10 window is the high manufacturing cost of solderglass-sealed vacuum glass. To remedy this, edge seal material must be changed from meltable solderglass to cold-weldable aluminum foil, speeding up the manufacturing rate by over 700X. Phase I research showed that rod-shaped pane spacers, or whiskers, are the best shape available. They can enabl ...

  2. Integrated system for field, clinic and laboratory preparation of biological specimens for microscopy

    SBC: Microscopy Innovations, LLC            Topic: DHP16C004

    Biological tissues collection is problematic and risky even under ideal conditions; when collection occurs in remote locations, or by minimally- trained personnel, as may occur in response to an emerging disease threat, risks are magnified. This proposal addresses this issue by developing a Field Fixation Unit (FFU) for specimen collection that utilizes single-use capsules pre-loaded with fixative ...

  4. In-Harbor/At-Sea Ship Defense with Terahertz Sensors

    SBC: VDW DESIGN, LLC            Topic: N04065

    The Phase II component of this project will scale from the gigahertz to the terahertz regime the new antennas, pulse generators, detectors and modulation concepts modeled and demonstrated in Phase I. Phase II efforts will focus on arrays for generating and detecting broadband radiation from 50 GHz to above 0.5 THz (where atmospheric absorption is minimized) for sensing concealed threats. Portabili ...

  5. Computer-Aided Design and Optimization of High Performance Vacuum Electronic Devices

    SBC: SIMULATION TECHNOLOGY & APPLIED RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N04113

    High-performance vacuum electron devices, such as microwave tubes, are widely used in military electronic battle-space systems. These devices are found in radar, communications, remote sensing, and navigation systems, where they provide an efficient and reliable source of microwave power. The pivotal role of microwave tubes in many on-board systems makes them a natural choice for careful optimiza ...
