  1. Construction of a Force Probe for Characterization of Microscale Features

    SBC: INSITUTEC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase 2 objective is to provide NIST with a modular gauge head unit equipped with InsituTec's standing wave probe technology. The complete gauge head unit will be retrofitted to the NIST M48 which is one of the most precise measuring machines in the world. This unit will enable NIST to achieve the agency's program goal in dimensional metrology which is to provide microscale measurement capacit ...

  2. Covert Modular Situational Awareness Monitor

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM05010

    A need exists for inexpensive, disposable, broadcast capable chemical / explosive-compound sensors that also provide site weather conditions. The state-of-the-art does not meet the need described both in terms of CWA sensor cost/size and lack of a low-cost deployment system. ADA proposes under this three-phased SBIR program to develop a system comprised of a suite of covert, modular, lightweight ...

  3. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM06002

    Current methods of transmitting low-frequency RF energy from airborne platforms involve antennas such as blades that are electrically inefficient and a place a large aerodynamic burden on the airframe. SOCOM desires a method of efficiently transmitting low-frequency energy (VHF-UHF) at high power levels from airborne platforms. The desired gain numbers (-2 to 0 dB) at these frequencies would requi ...

  4. Automated Detection and Cueing

    SBC: PERCEPTEK            Topic: SOCOM06001

    The single most effective method to thwart security threats posed by people with hostile intent is to detect their presence early. Unfortunately, large scale standoff detection of humans is difficult. Various sensors, including still and video cameras, have been designed and applied to human detection, however, to date a person is required to be in the detection loop since robust, automated detect ...

  5. MOCA: Monitoring of Crowd Activities

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: SOCOM06014

    The MOCA project will develop a network-enabled DSP+FPGA-enhanced image-intensified embedded system for self-contained low-power monitoring of crowds in open and in complex urban terrain. The Phase I effort will develop new algorithms explicitly for crowd management, rather than building on the traditional intelligent video surveillance algorithms that are focused on isolated targets in motion. P ...

  6. Development of UltrastableTi:sapphire Lasers for Optical Clock and Spectroscopy Applications

    SBC: Kapteyn-Murnane Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase 1 project proposes to develop a femtosecond laser system optimized for optical clocks and other precision metrology applications. In principle, atomic optical transitions have the potential to provide radically higher-accuracy timekeeping, because of the very high frequency of an optical transition. The problem of counting, or down-counting, the oscill ...

  7. Direct-Digital Phase & Amplitude Noise Measurement System

    SBC: TIMING SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    We propose to compare alternative architectures for phase noise measurement by directly sampling the RF waveform. Out of band modulation and cross correlation will reduce noise. The capabilities of each architecture will be determined using analysis and simulation. The results will be used to determine the feasibility of developing a commercially useful measurement instrument. If the results are p ...

  8. Surface Selective Chiral Detection: A New Metrology Technique

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    The near chiral purity of the biosphere leads to a vast array of chiro-specific physiological responses. This chiro-specificity, in turn, gives rise to the need for the manufacturing of enantiomerically pure chiral chemicals, such as pesticides, pharmaceuticals, food additives, pigments, etc. Critical to the efficacy of both chiro-specific biology and chiro-synthesis/separation are the interfacial ...

  9. Compact, Turnable Diode Laser for Water-Vapor Spectroscopy

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    We will develop a compact external cavity stabilization system, which will employ independent electro-optic control over the optical path length of the cavity and a wavelength-selective element. The system should be able to cover a 30 nm range and give mode-hop-free tuning over 20 nm intervals. The design of the feedback system will be compatible with any commercially available laser diode from 63 ...

  10. 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 ...
