  1. Gene-Probe Electrodes to Detect Enterically-Transmitted RNA Virus Pathogens

    SBC: ALDERON BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Enterically transmitted pathogens cause far more illness than toxicants such as lead, mercury, pesticides, and all other forms of chemical contamination. The world has become increasingly vulnerable to the spread of old and flew infectious organisms and water-borne pathogens as illustrated by recent outbreaks of 20 well-known and at least 29 previously unknown diseases. New tests are needed to d ...

  2. Agent-Based Planning Execution and Monitoring


    Superior information over one's adversary allows control of the battlespace, and ultimately provides opportunities to tales advantage of me adversary's vulnerability. C4I planning is critical to shape and control the pace and phasing of battlespace engagements, and requires direct access to battlespace information in order to utilize it effectively. Effective C4I planning requires the ability to ...

  3. High-Bandwidth GBS-Based Software Download System


    Current methods of software deployment for shipboard computing assets are slow and exceedingly expensive. In the past, the lack of low-cost, global, high-bandwidth digital communications mandated the manual transportation of physical media to individual ships. With the emergence of the Global Broadcast Service (GBS), there is an opportunity to realize substantial cost savings by automating the so ...

  5. Sputter Synthesis of Bulk Aluminum Nitride

    SBC: Carolina Sputter Solutions            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research will demonstrate the feasibility of using a novel physical vapor deposition (PVD) technique for bulk growth of aluminum nitride(AlN). We have developed a sputter source which demonstrates the high growth rates needed for growing bulk aluminum nitride. In comparison with other bulk growth processes this novel PVD process has the advantages of a controlled processing environmen ...

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    4H-silicon carbide power devices are expected to have 3x higher current densities and 200x lower on-resistance, while still operating up to 350 degree C. This is because of an order of magnitude higher breakdown electric field and a 2-3x higher thermal conductivity of 4H-SiC as compared to Si. Recent advances in 4H-SiC crystal quality, low doped epitaxial uniformity, dopant ion implantation, rea ...

  7. Evaluaation of alternative High-Temperature high-Field Dielectrics for SiC Devices

    SBC: CREE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon Carbide is exceptionally well suited for high temperature, high-power electronics. These electronics would be ideal for high-temperature applications for electric combat vehicles, including vehicle propulsion, active protection, electric gun and turret control. Therefore, silicon carbide has been identified as a critical electronic technology for use in future armored vehicles. To fully ...
