  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Improving Commercial Fish Meal Free Aquaculture Diets

    SBC: Low Salinity, Inc.            Topic: 922F

    The current emphasis in fish nutrition is fish meal replacement with a variety of alternative protein sources including plant-based, terrestrial and marine proteins. We propose to focus specifically upon the protein quality of these alternate protein sources and its potential impacts on marine fish production. Animal byproduct meals created through the rendering industry are widely utilized as i ...

  3. Buoy Guard System

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: 932W

    McQ will develop a complete conceptual design for a Buoy Guard System (BGS). This system will detect the presence of intruders at and on the buoy. It will initiate deterrent actions to persuade and force the intruders away from the buoy. It will also collect imagery and other data about the intruders and about their activities associated with the buoy. This data, along with the basic warning w ...

  5. Compact, Covert Periscope with 360 Degree Simultaneous Day/Night Coverage

    SBC: 3 Phoenix, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10003

    3 Phoenix, Inc. proposes to build, integrate, test and deliver a modular non-rotational high definition compact periscope system for use on submerged or surface vehicles. Our design is compliant with the Modular Open Systems Approach (MOSA) as it is based on commercial interface standards and commercially available electronics. The system will provide instantaneous 360-degree field of view in an ...

  6. Mesoporous CO2 Scrubber Materials for Underwater Breathing Apparatus Platforms

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM10002

    Current and future military forces are moving to be lighter, faster, and stealthier in order to maintain an operational advantage. For example, underwater combat activities require light and small equipment for the submarines or the divers to efficiently complete the assigned missions. Among those systems required by underwater activities, breathing air supply equipment is especially critical fo ...

  10. Distributed Sensing System for Health Monitoring of Deep Submergence Vehicles

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM08003

    The overall objective of Phase II is the design, production and testing of hybrid composite pressure vessels with embedded optical fiber monitoring to replace steel flasks. The hybrid flasks represent significant weight and acquisition cost savings that will improve ASDS mission capability and readiness. However, the procedures for conducting nondestructive testing to ascertain the strength proper ...
