  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

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

  2. 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 ...

  3. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingesting the jet exhaust from other aircraft. Under s ...

  6. Ship Shape: Three-dimensional ship modeling for submarine combat systems

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: N131024

    The rapid identification of ships from periscope and other imagery is a capability important to a variety of submarine missions, including sea control, anti-surface warfare, battle group support, covert operations landings, and ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance) operations. When spotting a new vessel, the imagery taken from submarines can be useful to construct three-dimensional ...

  7. Crowdsourcing as a Map Reduce Job

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: N131063

    MSI proposes to develop automated mechanisms to dissect incoming queries and engage appropriate cloud-based resources to address them. To automate this process, we propose iterative query refinement between an automated analyzer (called the Matchmaker) and human experts. The Matchmaker will use keyword and semantic analysis to identify query topics. These topics will engage people with expertise i ...

  8. Advanced Adaptive Optics (AO) for Laser Weapons in Heavy Turbulence

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N131076

    Adaptive optics are needed for high-energy laser (HEL) weapon systems when performance is limited by atmospheric turbulence. This typically requires adding an illuminator laser to produce a beacon by reflection from the target surface. Since a small spot is needed, the laser must be projected from the main aperture, complicating the optical design. With this type of beacon, performance is often de ...

  9. Frequency Agile Millimeter Wave (MMW) Signal Generator

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N131080

    PSI will leverage our extensive experience and unique capabilities in MMW photonics to design a compact, lightweight, frequency-agile MMW source combining wide, continuous, rapid tunability with superb phase noise and moderate output power. Such a source will have extensive commercial applications in next-generation wireless communications, as well as military applications including reconfigurable ...

  10. Membrane-Based Deformable Mirrors for High Power Laser Systems

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: N131081

    The demonstration of polymer membrane deformable mirrors capable of receiving a high-reflectivity coating and handling high energy laser radiation enables the potential for a new generation of low-cost DMs for directed energy weapons. To achieve high actuator count and high speed, a new structural architecture need to be demonstrated. We propose to develop this architecture to achieve a low-cost D ...
