  2. High Speed Imaging Spectropolarimeter for Dynamic Samples

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 9020663R

    Spectroscopic ellipsometry is recognized as the gold standard in noncontact characterization of the refractive index and thickness of a thin optical film or film stack on a substrate. However, it suffers from a number of shortcomings, perhaps the most important of which is the time required to perform a single measurement. Moreover, manufacturers are interested in comprehensive evaluation of thin ...

  3. Advanced WCDMA Algorithms for Rapidly Changing Coverage Geometries

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N122147

    WCDMA payloads on fast-moving platforms, such as on satellites in Molniya orbits or on UAVs, will likely be added to the battlefield to assure the warfighter of reliable, ubiquitous communications. The algorithms for handoffs, timing, and Doppler correction suitable for near-Geosynchronous platforms will not be suitable for these fast movers. Power control algorithms may or may not be suitable. Th ...

  5. Safe High Voltage Cathode Materials for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: Scientic, Inc.            Topic: N11AT035

    A high-voltage, high-capacity, inexpensive cathode material for lithium-ion batteries (LIBs) is proposed. The cathode material employs carbon nanotubes and additional nanostructures to support efficient transport of Li ions. The resulting LIBs will support high transient and pulsed loads while offering enhanced safety and lifecycle performance. Proof-of-concept LIB cells were demonstrated in Phase ...

  7. High Density Nosetips for Hypersonic Projectiles

    SBC: Plasma Processes, LLC            Topic: N131071

    The Navy is developing weapon systems capable of launching inert projectiles for long-range surface fire support and missile intercept applications. Inert projectiles offer significant logistical and safety advantages over conventional chemical propellants or explosive ordnances. The launch conditions of future hypersonic projectiles will put extreme mechanical and aerothermal loads on the project ...

  8. Active Laser Protection System

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: N111001

    The use of commercial off-the-shelf laser systems as weapons is increasingly becoming real. Battery operated visible and infrared lasers can be purchased with powers near 1-watt, sufficient to cause permanent eye damage. Future threats may include frequency agile lasers. It is critical that countermeasure systems provide laser eye protection (LEP) across the visible and IR waveband. Self-activatin ...

  9. Application of Switching Valves to Improve Reliability of Fueldraulic Systems

    SBC: Dynsan            Topic: N121029

    DynSan will collaborate with the Purdue University to develop and test an innovative, fast digital hydraulic valve design that is insensitive to working fluid contamination. The goal is to improve the reliability of fueldraulic systems on aircraft gas turbine engines and similar applications. Current fueldraulic systems use flapper-type Electro Hydraulic Servo Valves (EHSV) to control actuator pos ...

  10. Absolute Localization in GPS-denied Environment for Autonomous Unmanned Ground and Micro-air Vehicle Systems

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N121101

    Polaris proposes to develop necessary hardware and algorithms for a Sky Polarization and Sun Sensor (SkyPass) in order to replace absolute localization information provided by Global Positioning System (GPS) for when GPS fails in a typical navigation solution. Additionally, this proposal includes an polarization-based approach to improve feature extraction and association processes for use in navi ...
