  1. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. An Advanced NDE Approach to Determine the Adhesive Bond Strength

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: SB123001

    Bonded composite materials offer considerable opportunity to reduce manufacturing cost, improve structural performance, and improve fuel efficiency of aircraft. However, bonded composite aircraft structures continue to be a challenge to manufacture due to the certification requirement to determine the strength of the bonds in the structures - before they are placed into service. Current testing te ...

  4. Automated Wide-Area Network Configuration from High-Level Specifications

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: ST061002

    Wide-area networks are essential to productivity in commercial enterprises and military organizations. Reliability is difficult to achieve because wide-area networks, such as the Internet, are built from many autonomously configured component networks. Today there exists a large gap between the intended design of a network and the implementation of that design. This is because complex network poli ...

  5. Very High Altitude Aircraft Propulsion Engines

    SBC: VAPORCOR LLC            Topic: SB072045

    Vaporcor LLC is developing a very high altitude (~90 kft) aircraft propulsion engine capable of meeting the stability, reliability, and environmental requirements suitable for use on a VHALE aircraft with 12-20 hour endurance that must be stored for months. Vaporcor’s VHALE engine implements a closed loop Rankine thermodynamic cycle using super-critical CO2 (S-CO2) as the working fluid. The Ra ...

  6. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: Jonathan Aerospace Materials Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    Lattice Block Materials, or LBM for short, are a class of materials comprised of an open structure of ligaments arranged in a regular truss like structure that is three dimensional. A basic unit cell is comprised of a square based pyramid skeleton (just the corners, called nodes, and the edges, called ligaments). These cells are connected in all directions to form a larger lattice like structure ...

  7. Periodically Poled Materials for UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: A09AT008

    Army quantum information researchers have an immediate need for improved stable, narrowband violet and UV laser sources with 10–100 mW output and 10 MHz–10 GHz tuning. These sources are required for numerous ion and atom qubits functions including photoionization, Doppler cooling, state initialization, and detection. The cost and complexity of currently available UV lasers hampers current ef ...

  8. High-Resolution Wide-Bandwidth Optical Arbitrary Waveform Generation Over Extended Time Apertures

    SBC: S2 CORPORATION            Topic: SB082041

    We propose to design a prototype device based on coherent accumulation and interference of spectrally shaped waveforms to achieve wideband optical arbitrary waveform generation with time apertures of 50 us, complete control of phase and amplitude, bandwidths of 100 GHz up to 1 THz, and a spectral resolution of 50 kHz. This technology enables wideband agile waveform generation for communications, ...
