  1. IED neutralization from an airborne platform

    SBC: Imsar LLC            Topic: DTRA182001

    In cooperation with the Joint Improvised-threat Defeat Organization (JIDO) and the U.S. Army, IMSAR LLC demonstrated its radar systems' ability to successfully detect IED emplacements from the RQ-7B Shadow Unmanned Aerial System (UAS). As part of the Armys ShadowSAR program, IMSAR operated and maintained these Synthetic Aperture Radar (SAR) sensors for 4years in support of Operation Enduring Freed ...

  2. Development of “Permit Wizard” Software for AssistedPermit Application Completion

    SBC: Total Quality Systems, Inc.            Topic: 833

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The objective of this project is to research the technical feasibility of designing a software tool “Permit Wizard” that will automate the process for aquamarine permit application submittal, review, approval/disapproval and issue (including collection of fees). Aquaculture producers are currently faced with slow, complex, and often confusing permitting processes that must ...

  3. Development of a Rapid Monitoring System for Detection of Pathogens in Marine Aquaculture Operations

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: 836

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: InnovaPrep proposes to develop a rapid sample-to-answer monitoring system for detecting pathogens in marine aquaculture waters. An assessment of industry needs will include a kickoff meeting with NOAA and a visit to Toby Island Bay Oyster Farm. Following the assessment and report, a TRL-4 breadboard prototype system will be developed that will include the combination of sample ...

  4. Additive Manufacturing of All Solid-State Batteries with Novel Electrode Architectures

    SBC: Storagenergy Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA172005

    Supercapacitors have attracted considerable recent attentions due to their high-power density, and long cycle life. Unfortunately, the energy density of supercapacitors is too low to meet these applications requiring an energy supply for longer periods (hours or days). Storagenergy Technologies Inc. proposes to develop a superior all solid-state battery (ASSB) fabricated by additive manufacturing ...

  5. Multi-mode Handheld Radioisotope Identification Instrument

    SBC: Endectra LLC            Topic: DTRA152007

    Handheld radioisotope identification instruments (RIIDs) are an important, front-line tool for passively detecting, locating, and characterizing radioactive materials and thereby helping to prevent the spread of illicit nuclear materials. Border patrol, customs, and law enforcement personnel, along with warfighters, demand an enhanced, more sensitive RIID capable of integrated gamma and neutron de ...

  6. Multi-mode Handheld Radioisotope Identification Instrument

    SBC: Merrill Corporation            Topic: DTRA152007

    Radioisotopes can be identified by the emission of neutrons & gammas having characteristic energies.Most hand-held radioisotope identification instruments, however, are gamma-ray centered designs that optionally include neutron detectors of limited sensitivity. Passive measurements of gamma-ray signatures can easily be compromised by shielding a source. Photogenics has developed a neutron spectrom ...

  7. Laser Sensor for Unattended, and Precise Determination of Calcium and Strontium in Seawater

    SBC: CHEMLED TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: 861X

    The use of unattended floats, platforms, and drones addresses the immense challenge of cost-effectively characterizing the chemistry of the oceans. The proposed program strengthens this capability by demonstrating the feasibility of Laser Fluorescence Enhanced Flame Spectrophotometry (LFEFS) for the simultaneous and high precision measurement of calcium and strontium. These are key elements of the ...

  8. Lithography Cost Reduction for Rad Hard Integrated Circuits

    SBC: SILICON TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: DTRA143008

    This program will combine Silicon Technologies analog automation technology ADONIS with EBDW technology.This combination will reduce design times and costs for Analog Trusted circuits and will facilitate reuse of obsolete, radiation-hardened, precision analog components. Originally funded by the DARPA GRATES program, ADONIS demonstrated that with analog specific modifications, ADONIS Straight Line ...

  9. Development of Sustainable, Multi-Seasonal, Multi-Species, Marine Algal Aquaculture in Coastal Maine

    SBC: Maine Fresh Sea Farms, LLC            Topic: 81

    This Phase I proposal determines the feasibility of growing multiple species of macroalgae in commercial marine aquafarm environments. Marine aquaculture is a logical outgrowth of successful wild harvest seaweed businesses over the last several years. Developing a marine aquaculture prototype will foster the science of sea farming. Extending growing seasons for multi-species would provide year ...

  10. 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 ...
