  1. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping


    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. Computing With Chaos

    SBC: NUGENT, MICHAEL ALEXANDER            Topic: N12AT013

    We propose a self-organized chaotic attractor based CMOS/Memristor circuit framework called Self-Evolvable-Logic-Fabric (SELF) for autonomous motor control. We propose to demonstrate SELF's ability to spontaneously evolve algorithmic pathways to control a robotic arm to catch a ball utilizing visual and proprioceptive feedback while varying parameters that increase the complexity and difficul ...

  5. High-Power Microwave (HPM) Weapons"Effects and Failure Analysis Tool

    SBC: TECHFLOW SCIENTIFIC            Topic: N121008

    TechFlow Scientific, a division of TechFlow Inc., will leverage over a century of High Power Microwave (HPM) Effects Test and Modeling experience to develop an integrated toolkit that models the vulnerability and susceptibility of electronic systems, subsystems and components to directed energy (DE) HPM weapons. The analysis toolkit developed will center on three essential modules, critical in a f ...

  6. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  7. A Compact, Low Cost, Handheld Sensor for Non- Destructive Material Case Depth Verification

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N102141

    In this SBIR program, AlphaSense, Inc. teamed with the Center for Non-destructive Evaluations at Iowa State University to develop a compact, low cost handheld sensor for non-destructive material case depth verification. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using an alternating current potential drop (ACPD) sensor for non-destructive measurements of case depth. Phase II will be focusing on ...

  9. Prognostic ASIC and IC set for Process-Related Integrated Circuits (IC))

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N06006

    MSI proposed to modify previously developed EPIC hardware, demonstrated in the Army Stryker SIL, for use on the EA-6B aircraft. The new application will monitor control buses and power lines to determine the cause of AN/AIC-45 communications system lockups. These lockups cause a safety of flight situation when they occur. The lockups have never been replicated on ground during maintenance, but con ...

  10. QynCap Energy Storage Device for Airborne Directed Energy Weapons

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: N08130

    The Navy is in the process of improving the warfighting capability of critical platforms (JSF, F/A-18, etc.) by introducing laser-based weapon systems that require pulses of DC electric power. The preferred method to provide power to this weapon system is to utilize high power density energy storage devices to generate the high currents necessary for firing, and to recharge these devices with a lo ...
