  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. Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to use the Phase I SBIR as a vehicle to develop and market a commercially viable 25kW flowing water optical power meter (FWOPM) for industrial, research, and government applications. Building upon existing and fundamentally sound NIST design, and without sacrificing quality or accuracy, HPD will reduce costs and increase manufacturability using best prac ...

  3. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  4. 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 ...

  6. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA)

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM08001

    In Phase I Ceebus demonstrated the feasibility of an underwater, acoustic, direct-sequence spread-spectrum communication architecture, including actual data transfers and decoded message recovery. All of the communication algorithms were post-processed and communication was performed with a single piezo transducer. Prototype development is the next step in delivering a system that offers real-time ...

  7. Lightweight, Small Volume, CO2 Removal Technology for Underwater Breathing Apparatus (UBA) and Undersea Platforms: An Advanced Nanotechnology Resolut

    SBC: Marshall Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10002

    We will employ the very latest methods in nanotechnology to realize vastly improved CO2 scrubbing efficiency in closed cycle underwater breathing apparatuse(UBA). Our system will occupy minimal volume, will be simple in design and will employ benign nano-particles as the CO2 active scrubbing material. Due to the design, CO2 uptake will be maximized and breathing flow resistance will kept at a mi ...

  8. Micro Weather Sensor (MWS)

    SBC: Advanced Distributed Sensor Systems, Inc            Topic: SOCOM10006

    A need exists for a new environmental situational awareness sensor with multi-spectrum camouflage that is extremely small (90g) and capable of measuring with aviation-grade accuracy: wind speed/direction, horizontal visibility, sky condition, cloud heights, temperature, dewpoint, barometric pressure, precipitation and CBRN contamination. There exists a strong desire to support a variety of commun ...

  9. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...
