  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. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  3. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  4. Remote Electronic Medical Devices using the Integrated Clinical Environment (REMDICE)

    SBC: DocBox Inc            Topic: SOCOM13003

    Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of the ...

  5. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM13002

    In this proposal we describe our approach and anticipated results concerning the use of a novel and innovative method for providing Over-The-Horizon (OTH) L-band links between a submerged tracking device and an overhead satellite without the requirement for an on or above surface antenna. The encapsulation of an antenna in a dielectrically compensating tethered cocoon that includes a sensor and m ...

  6. Insensitive Munitions Disposal Attack: Zero-Explosive Ultrasound Standoff (ZEUS) Detonation System

    SBC: General Technology Systems, LLC            Topic: DTRA122009

    The objective of this proposal is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility of high-intensity focused ultrasound (HIFU) applications for donor explosive-free detonation of insensitive munitions (IM) and insensitive high explosives (IHE). General Technology System's (GTS) solution, termed the Zero-Explosive Ultrasound Standoff (ZEUS) detonation system, will provide a low-cost, covert, ultra-p ...

  7. High-Performance Opto-Electronic Oscillator for Millimeter Wave

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Leveraging Agiltron¿s recent breakthrough in the broad band and tunable photonic high-Q factor RF filtering technique, we propose to develop a high-spectral-purity, low-phase-noise, spurs-free opto-electronic oscillator (OEO) operating at W-band for the NIST applications. Based on our unique technical approach and successful development in low loss fiber optics, RF photonic components/modules, an ...

  8. A Fully Integrated Commercial Multi-sample Multi-Slit Rheometer

    SBC: CAMBRIDGE POLYMER GROUP, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Proposed here is the continued development of an innovative rheometer configuration design at NIST. It describes the determination of suitable detection, drive, control, software and assembly designs for a commercially viable, fully integrated device. The initial efforts will concentrate on examining the sub-systems of the design. An important feature of the proposed strategy is early commercial i ...

  9. Developing Centrifugation Based Length Separation of SWCNTs for Advanced Applications

    SBC: Eikos, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Carbon nanotubes are one of the most studied and potentially useful nanoparticles known. However, presently even the purest are only commercially available in mixtures of chiralities and lengths. Even though numerous lab scale methods to separate them have been demonstrated, few offer the potential to be scaled and offered as a product. Eikos has found that, for many applications, nanotube length ...
