  1. Low Damage Ion Beam Etching Technique and Method for Compositional Profiling of Thin Multilayer Films

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Thin film multilayers of nanometer scale thickness are fundamental to the future of electronics and communications technologies. Chemical depth profiling by ion etching techniques are critical to the characterization of these structures. A fundamental problem with current ion etching technologies is that typical ion energies (~1k eV to 20 keV) create extensive damage and intermixing of nanometer t ...

  2. Tool Condition Monitoring and Diagnostics

    SBC: VulcanCraft            Topic: N/A

    A smart machine tool must be able to monitor its condition and report problems. Every CNC machine should provide an alarm for tool condition problems, including tool wear, much as every automobile has a low oil indicator. Tool wear is particularly important for unattended machining as a worn tool can ruin a part. All current tool condition systems operate "blind" without direct information on curr ...

  3. HF to UHF Camouflaged Antenna

    SBC: AVTEC SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avtec views this SOCOM program as an RF systems development program, more than just an antenna development program. The family of antennas developed under this program must work with a wide range of communications systems, and also provide a wide range offunctionality (communications reception and transmission over a broad frequency range with multiple radio systems, provide omni and directional c ...

  4. Hand-held, Standoff Chemical-Biological Hazard Detector

    SBC: CRE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Handheld stand-off chemical agent detection is the next step in a line of research dating back 30 years. Technology has advanced to the point where reasonable designs for Infrared Spectrometers to remotely introgate chemical agents from very smallpackages can be considered.The incremental, adaptive engineering to move from man-portable systems to hand-held operation requires careful consideration ...

  5. Enhanced Image Capture and Transfer Capability

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    An essential task performed by Special Operations Forces (SOF) is the acquisition and distribution of intelligence information from remote locations. The value of this information for applications such as target identification can be greatly enhanced ifit is augmented by the use of imagery. Digital images captured by SOF personnel at remote locations must be transmitted via satellite link to dec ...

  6. Small, Low Cost Emitter Geolocation System for use by SOF Personnel

    SBC: Information Systems Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The geolocater developed under this SBIR will be based on an existing design developed under the DARPA Wolfpack program and adapted for the SOCOM mission. It will be a modular device operating as part of a SOF tool box, and will employ a set of algorithmsthat can be applied to the given emitter type to produce optimum geolocation results. The best algorithm for the situation will be chosen automat ...

  7. Intelligent Tools with Ambient-Powered Wirelss Sensors

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Next-generation smart machine tools are currently under research and development. Critical to the success of these tools will be the inclusion of smart sensors. These sensor suites will need to measure physical parameters such as temperature, vibration, pressure and so on. Luna Innovations has extensive experience in developing solar powered wireless systems to transmit sensor data. Luna proposes ...

  8. Nano-Scale Particle Coatings for Service Life Extension of Small Arm Components

    SBC: LUNA INNOVATIONS INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Wear and erosion limit the service life and degrade the performance of weapons used by U. S. Special Operations Forces. Gun barrel coatings to maintain barrel life, overall weapon performance and reduce sustainment costs are required. These new coatingswill conform to environmental initiatives to reduce hexavalent chrome usage. Luna Innovations will develop a complete coating process and system ...
