  1. Low-Noise Detector Arrays for Raman Spectroscopy

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

    We propose to demonstrate near infrared (NIR) sensor arrays with 10 times lower noise than arrays presently available to improve the sensitivity of current spectroscopy systems. Such an achievement would allow the measurement of new phenomena through Raman spectroscopy and other diagnostic techniques. The low noise performance is enabled by the use of low-noise Si readout integrated circuits mated ...

  2. Holographic Light-Emitting Diode-Based Solar Simulator

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    NIST is seeking a large-area solar simulator to overcome the shortcomings of current devices. Therefore, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) developed in Phase I a new Holographic Light-Emitting-Diode (LED)-Based Solar Simulator (HOLIOS) system based on: high-power LEDs with electronic drivers; holographic filters; and collimating, homogenizing, and projection optics for indoor testing of photovolta ...

  3. Imaging Variable Kinetic Energy Electron Analyzer

    SBC: R. Browning Consultants            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to create a prototype imaging variable kinetic energy electron analyzer in the range 0.1 to 8 keV for use with an X-ray excitation source. The imaging analyzer is to have a target imaging spatial resolution of 100 nm. The X-ray excitation source will be a synchrotron light source. The instrument can be described as an X-ray photoelectron spectroscopy (XPS) microsc ...

  4. Advanced Lightweight Vehicle Components and Materials

    SBC: Alpha Star Corporation            Topic: SOCOM07001

    The HMMWV vehicle has seen increasing weight due to the added anti-ballistic and anti-IED protection, whereas mainframe is not designed to function optimally. Ground mobility forces are conducting increased mounted operations from armored HMMWV/modified HMMWV’s. As additional armor and equipment continues to be added to the system, the performance of the existing power train/suspension/steering ...

  5. Cultural Mobile Intelligence Data Acquisition System (MIDAS)

    SBC: Anacapa Sciences, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM07006

    Phase I entails a systematic investigation of handheld devices and wiki-based information sharing in relation to the needs and requirements of PSYOP soldiers in order to produce an optimal design of the Mobile Intelligence Data Acquisition System (MIDAS). The investigation will thoroughly cover hardware, software and Human Computer Interaction (HCI) considerations, capitalizing on user-centered ...

  6. Enhanced Small Arms Ammunition

    SBC: Liquidmetal Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06008

    The current materials for small arms ammunitions have several shortcomings, such as environmental concerns, and have difficulty to meet the advancing requirements. The new material solutions and metallurgy is needed to meet the desired performance objectives and as well as safety, legal and environmental rules. The purpose of this Phase-I effort is to develop a bullet design based on a new class o ...

  7. Advanced Tactical Threat Warning Radio

    SBC: NETWORKFAB CORP.            Topic: SOCOM05008

    In today's tactical areas of operation, signal threat detection is one of the integral aspects of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is a need for the ability to detect enemy communications (known and unknown) and DF on their locations. Additionally, SOF units have a critical need for short range tactical communications to stay in contact with other uni ...

  8. Real-Time Optical Sensor for Particle Size and Concentration Monitoring at Aircraft Engine Air Inlets

    SBC: PROCESS METRIX            Topic: SOCOM05009

    The overall objective of this project is to develop a sensor that can measure dust size and concentration exposure for military engine inlets. In order to achieve the simplest possible real-time sensor package, we have focused on a single-ended sensor design that measures back-scattered light to determine dust conditions. These measurements of dust concentrations and size can then be correlated ...

  9. Camouflage Tactical Multiband Direction Finding Antenna Array

    SBC: QUASAR Federal Systems, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06017

    The US Department of Defense (DoD) has a need for a lightweight, portable, covert radio direction finding (DF) antenna. Current technology must be precisely spaced, oriented and phased, which makes it difficult to design an antenna with the necessary features whose function is not obvious to a trained observer. QUASAR Federal Systems (QFS) proposes to leverage the capabilities of its state-of-the- ...

  10. Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance

    SBC: SURFACE OPTICS CORP.            Topic: SOCOM07003

    A program to develop an advanced 3-D hyperspectral imaging sensor capable of day or night operation in the VNIR band is proposed. The proposed Automated Vehicle Identification at a Distance (AVID) sensor system builds upon Surface Optics’ real-time hyperspectral imaging activities, including the Multi-band Identification and Discrimination Imaging Spectroradiometer (MIDIS) system and the 3-D Fu ...
