  1. Novel CO2 Gas Sensors for Autonomous Measurement of Ocean Carbon

    SBC: DIOXIDE MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: 82

    The objective of the proposed work is to determine whether Dioxide Materials' miniature C02 sensors have the potential to be adapted for autonomous measurement of ocean carbon. The existing sensors have many advantages for measurements of ocean carbon. They are much smaller and less costly than the existing sensors, work with much smaller gas samples, and use much less power. The sensors were d ...

  2. Self-Contained Sub-Centimeter Positioning Platform

    SBC: TRUNAV LLC            Topic: 81

    The goal of this project is to develop, implement, and experimentally validate a new Differential Global Navigation Satellite System (DGNSS) capable of providing sub-centimeter positioning accuracy for quasi-static scientific, mapping, and survey applications. The main feature of the proposed DGNSS solution is that it leverages GNSS reference data from existing NOAA's Continuously Operational Ref ...

  3. Fast-Running Physics-Based Models for Intercept Debris Aero-heating and Aero-thermal Demise

    SBC: Shearwater Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA12009

    Accurate prediction of aero-thermal demise of post-intercept debris is a high priority for the United States Missile Defense Agency (MDA). Predictive tools for assessing the aero-thermal demise of intercept debris are needed to support BMDS effectiveness evaluations, flight test and range safety operations, and consequence mitigation assessments. During this Phase I effort, Shearwater Technology ...

  4. Light weight Rubidium-Metal Vapor Circulating System

    SBC: Frederick T. Elder & Associates            Topic: MDA12018

    Frederick T. Elder & Associates(FTEA) proposes an approach to the development of a closed-cycle Helium-Rubidium(He-Rb) circulator that allows for FTEA to ensure safety throughout the project, to manufacture a prototype at a reasonable cost using mostly commercial components if selected for Phase II, and to meet or exceed the requirements outlined in the solicitation. FTEA has considered existing D ...

  5. Detection of Liquid Contaminants on Surfaces Using Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: CBD12104

    Quick detection of Chemical/Biological (CB) agents in the field can provide critical reconnaissance and contamination avoidance. CB agents pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external infrared (IR) sources, and/or are time-consuming. EPIR proposes to provide critically needed improvemen ...

  6. High Performance Nanopillar Optical Antenna Avalanche Detector Operating at 1.06um

    SBC: Illinois Applied Research Associates LLC            Topic: MDA12014

    Three dimensional (3D) imaging and single-wavelength active sensors are very effective for distinguishing moving targets, such as missiles, from decoys and for cutting through natural clutter and thermal noise. For systems equipped with ALS to accurately acquire, track and point moving objects, extremely sensitive detectors are required to be able to provide the bandwidth and resolution necessary ...

  7. Ultra-High Efficiency Multi-Physics CFD Simulation Software for DPAL/Laser System Analysis

    SBC: CU AEROSPACE L.L.C.            Topic: MDA12T008

    The primary objective of Phase I work performed by the team of CU Aerospace and the University of Illinois is to produce a powerful and easy to use, parallel, fluid-dynamic, chemical-kinetic, and optical simulation software package that will function on any modern computational platform (Unix, Linux, Windows, MacOS), be applicable to a wide range of laser systems and other technical problems of in ...

  8. Development of high energy laser analysis software along with experimental verification of DPAL rate constants

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA12T008

    Under the work proposed here, we will develop a physics based comprehensive software for modeling the behavior of a diode pumped alkali laser: DPAL. The software will be designed primarily for a He-Rb DPAL. However, it could easily be applied to DPALs based on other alkali atoms, such as Cs. Furthermore, the model would be versatile enough to be applicable to other high energy lasers as well. ...

  9. A Low-Cost, High-Performance Colloidal Quantum Dot LWIR FPA for Hyperspectral Imaging

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: CBD13105

    The primary goal of this proposed work is to develop a long wave infrared (LWIR) colloidal quantum dot (CQD)-based focal plane array (FPA) in order to significantly reduce the cost of LWIR hyperspectral imagers. In order to realize this goal, it will first be necessary to successfully fabricate and demonstrate the performance of novel LWIR HgTe CQD detector arrays. This will be accomplished thro ...

  10. Surface Leakage Suppression via Gaiting in LWIR Single- and Multi-Color Type-II Superlattice Photodetectors

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA11019

    High performance infrared detectors in the LWIR regime are highly needed in a number of missile defense missions. In order to image targets from long distance, it is important that imagers have high sensitivity and high resolution. This leads to technical goals of having low noise, low dark current in small size pixels in large arrays. While saturated performance levels of traditional systems base ...
