  1. High Speed Low Loss Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance fiberoptic switch is an enable technology for new generation optical telecommunication and fully secured quantum communication/cryptography applications. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Based on the successful development/production of a variety of industrial leading solid ...

  2. Improved Vapor Compression Personal Cooling

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: HSB042006

    The use of protective garments and/or body armor combined with warm ambient environments is a potentially lethal combination. We propose to develop a very small man-portable, self-contained cooling system based on our vapor compression technology. We believe that a vapor compression based system is the only candidate that can meet the size and weight goals of the mission. Aspen Systems is uniquely ...

  3. Autonomous Detection of LVP Airborne Organics

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: HSB041001

    A novel conceptual detector for continuous, fully autonomous detection of a broad range of low vapor pressure (LVP) airborne organics is proposed. Formal design of the concept will be performed and a preliminary design review and report generated. Underpinning demonstrations of detection range, selectivity, time and cost of ownership will be estimated by laboratory demonstrations or references to ...

  4. Rapid Low Vapor Pressure Chemical Detection Using a Hand-held Artificial Nose

    SBC: CogniScent, Inc.            Topic: HSB041001

    The Phase I research proposed here focuses on three areas of innovation necessary for low vapor pressure chemical detection using our hand-held artificial nose device: 1) We will optimized sensor construction methods to improve the sensitivity and discrimination ability of individual chemical detectors in the device. 2) We will design and test new vapor sampling methods. Vapor sampling is an area ...

  5. The Manufacturing of Large Soft X-ray Flourescence Detectors

    SBC: Detector Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present the need for a large area, 100 square centimeters or greater, soft x-ray fluorescence detector with high detection efficiency is required for material science and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The current methods of detection used in x-ray absorption spectroscopy are subject to poor collection efficiency, large background and vacuum risk. It is the task of this grant to develop a multi ...

  6. Microwave Data Telemetry for Marine Container Security

    SBC: INFRARED TELEMETRICS, INC            Topic: HSB041005

    IR Telemetrics builds microwave telemetry systems for transmitting sensor data through narrow metallic passages within automobile engines. IRT devices can interface with sensors and transmit their data to a local receiver network through complex passages as small as four centimeters. Research will adapt IRT core technology to enable continuous communication with marine containers. The performance ...

  7. Next Generation Cryogen-free ADR Cryostat

    SBC: Janis Research Co.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the next generation cryogen-free Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (ADR) system. It is a two stage ADR system that employs a self-shielded conductively cooled superconducting magnet and non-filamentary support for the paramagnetic pills. This is an improved version from Janis current cryogen-free ADR system product line, and the new system will be more user-friendly and ...

  8. Antenna Enhancements for SOF Applications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM03005

    U.S. Special Operating Forces (SOF) require tactical VHF/UHF antennas with improved performance for Special Reconnaissance (SR) missions. The development of an Enhanced Antenna Suite (EAS) tailored to SOF needs that can be configured depending on the nature of each mission is essential for meeting mission needs. Such a suite is aimed to provide enhanced mission effectiveness through improved LPI/ ...

  9. Miniature Quickscan Receiver

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04004

    Special Operation Forces personnel require a rugged, miniature receiver that is capable of monitoring RF energy while deployed on a mission. The RF receiver will give a better picture of the electromagnetic threat environment enabling a heightened situational awareness, yet the device must be small enough that it does not hamper the SOF warfighter during missions requiring stealth and rapid mobil ...

  10. Advanced Vest Designs for Special Operations Forces

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: SOCOM03011

    Special Operations Forces have a diverse set of needs and desires because of the wide variety of mission scenarios and conditions they undertake. This presents significant challenges for the design and manufacture of soldier garments to augment the performance of SOF operators in the field. Foster-Miller and its team have proposed a lightweight, dynamic vest design that will include and/or accom ...
