  1. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) InGaAs sensor arrays with 55% lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. The low noise performance will be enabled by the use of low-noise source follower per detector ROICs, which are also used in astronomy with HgCdTe for low noise measurements. With design improvements to current available ...

  2. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: SOCOM05011

    Special operation forces utilize C-130 aircraft that often operate in night/adverse weather, low-level, deep-penetration missions in contested or hostile environments. These low altitude missions result in higher risks to the crew and aircraft. AeroVironment proposes to leverage their current packaged and air-launched unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) developments to design a self-contained, packaged ...

  3. Aerosol Collection into Small Liquid Volumes for Biological Assays

    SBC: Aerosol Dynamics Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Detection systems for aeropathogens require the concentration of airborne particles from large volumes of air into small volumes of liquid. This proposal addresses this need through droplet encapsulation of airborne particles, with subsequent capture into a microliter-sized collection reservoir. Droplet encapsulation is accomplished through our company¿s proven, patented growth tube technology. T ...

  4. Signal Processing for a Southern Border Surveillance System

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The U.S. Border Patrol is in critical need of improved surveillance for detection of people and vehicles illegally crossing the Southern Border, particularly in rural areas. AETC will conduct a Phase 1 feasibility study of acoustics-based surveillance and signal processing techniques to address the Southern Border problem. The overall system concept encompasses a network of low-cost acoustic senso ...

  5. Development of a High Sensitivity Laser-induced Incandescence Instrument for Characterizing Soot and Carbonaceous Particles

    SBC: ARTIUM TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A high sensitivity laser-induced incandescence system is proposed for the detailed characterization of environmental soot. The Phase 1 effort has clearly demonstrated the feasibility of (1) reducing the lower detection limit of soot volume fraction and increasing the overall measurement range by at least 2 orders of magnitude from what is currently achievable, and (2) providing PM particle size me ...

  6. Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion for Multi-media Surveillance

    SBC: Broadata Communications, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Department of Homeland Security is seeking innovative highly-scalable information processing technologies to manage multimedia surveillance information networks. To address this need, Broadata Communications Inc. (BCI) proposes a highly innovative Network-centric Inter-channel Fusion (NIF) system solution. The NIF system is leveraged on a unique network-centric signal processing technique to a ...
