  1. Query-Based Interoperability for Simulation of Composite Structures

    SBC: INTACT SOLUTIONS INC.            Topic: 9020673R

    We propose to design and implement a query-based approach to interoperable modeling and simulation of composite material structures, that usually contain the manufacturing recipe within their design. In Phase I, we established the feasibility of the approach using a demonstration scenario of CAD/CAE interoperability for assemblies. In Phase II, we propose to develop a series of use-case scenarios ...

  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. 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 ...

  4. Alternative Source for Neutron Generation

    SBC: Phoenix LLC            Topic: A12088

    Phoenix Nuclear Labs (PNL) will perform a comprehensive analysis of all existing and proposed neutron generator technologies that do not utilize highly enriched fissile material. These technologies include the flux compression generator, dense plasma focus, high current deuterium-tritium fusion, and high current electrons incident upon uranium-238. Other technologies will also be identified and ...

  5. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. Bridger Photonics Inc. proposes to develop a dual-mode laser system capable of performing laser radar imaging as well as high speed free-spa ...

  6. Tools for Rapid Automated Development of Expert Models (TRADEM)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: A12026

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) are complex adaptive learning systems that simulate one-on-one tutoring. Research shows they improve learning and reduce time to mastery. Unfortunately, they are also expensive and time-consuming to produce. Existing IT authoring tools eliminate low level programming but require that domain models, expert models and content be created manually. In Phase I of t ...

  7. The Most Efficient (TME) Cold Chain Container for Blood

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A123113

    Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a novel cold chain system with a Lifetime Warranty for the vacuum container. The container composes a passive energy efficient system for transporting blood and pharmaceuticals in hostile environments for up to three days. Capacity is four 500 ml liter blood transfusion bags. Energy efficiency is possible by the novel shape and super insulating qualities ...

  8. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  9. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics, Inc. and the University of Arizona have successfully demonstrated a Phase I dynamically programmable multi-band compressive imaging system. The team demonstrated three key technical concepts that prove the feasibility of this powerful technology: 1. Advanced algorithms were used to develop compressive measurement basis sets for imaging and target classification. The algorithms ...

  10. Liquid Crystal-based Sensors for Detection of Airborne Toxic Chemicals for Integration with Unmanned Robotic Systems

    SBC: Platypus Technologies, LLC            Topic: A13AT004

    We aim to develop lightweight and rugged liquid crystal (LC)-based sensors suitable for integration into small unmanned vehicles, including hand-launched UAVs and throwable robots. For Phase I proof of concept, we propose to develop sensors that detect DMMP, H2S, NO2 and NH3. These gases include simulants of chemical warfare agents and toxic industrial chemicals, selected for their relevance to ...
