  1. Ultra-stable Frequency Reference Based on Spectral Hole Burning

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: SB12A001

    Highly stable, ultra-narrow linewidth frequency references are required for current and next generation timing systems. Timing systems with improved accuracy from primary clocks to fieldable references all require laser oscillators with improved inherent stability (time scales shorter than ~ 1 second). This proposal describes a novel frequency reference based on spectral hole burning in rare-ear ...

  2. Design of Robot Control Interfaces

    SBC: Boston Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB12A002

    Boston Engineering"s Advanced Systems Group and Dr. Holly Yanco"s team at the University of Massachusetts at Lowell propose to develop a design science for robot operator interfaces and demonstrate its application through existing design tools and prototype systems that reduce operator training time, maximize the ability of an operator - robot team to maintain synchronization, and provide a baseli ...

  3. Non-invasive Continuous Hemodynamic Monitor

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: SB12A003

    Emergency departments, trauma centers, and military field physicians have a critical need for a simple, easy-to-use, and reliable method of monitoring the onset of hemorrhagic shock that is able to predict onset during the compensatory phase, before syncope and cardiac collapse signaled by a rapid drop in blood pressure. In collaboration with Dr. Michael Joyner"s laboratory at the Mayo Clinic, RMD ...

  4. Visualization, Human Systems, Information Systems


    We propose to develop and evaluate a social media visualization testbed, using a novel first-principles design approach based on visual thinking algorithms(VTA"s). Much like software design patterns, VTA"s are reusable blueprints for design of new interactive visualizations. VTA's describe the steps in the visual thinking process that capture both operations occurring in a computer and in the ...

  5. Broad photonic-based Tunable High Quality Factor RF Filter

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB12A006

    Leveraging Agiltron"s industrial leading developments and production of high speed fiber optical components and modules as well as commercial photonic devices, we propose to develop a new class of high performance tunable RF filters and filter banks for advanced RF systems. The approach is closely coupled with recent progress in photonic devices and fiber optic devices to push the filter performan ...

  6. Electrostatically Flocked Graphite Fiber Interface for Thermally Conductive Structural 2D Laminate Graphite Fiber Reinforced Composites

    SBC: EY TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: AF10BT01

    ABSTRACT: The objective of the EY Technologies proposal is to develop a graphite fiber interface on the surface of a 2D graphite unidirectional tape to enhance the thermally conductive and structural properties on all axis of a composite, with emphasis in enhancing the Z-axis. Currently, industry has not been able to make 2D laminate composite from unidirectional materials that simultaneously ...

  7. Theoretical Models of Quantum Conductance on Graphical Processing Units

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT21

    ABSTRACT: Due to the costs associated with their fabrication, theoretical prediction of conductance in molecular and nano-electronic systems is a cost-effective tool in the design of new devices. Unfortunately, the techniques currently used to treating conductance are computationally expensive, and modeling real systems accurately has been a challenge. We propose to tackle this problem by develop ...

  8. Highly Directional Infrared Emission and Transmission

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT30

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR program, Agiltron and Iowa State University (ISU) jointly propose to develop simple material and structural solutions that enable directionally dependent emission in the infrared regime. The highly directional infrared emission has extremely narrow emission patterns and a large difference between high and low emission states. In the Phase I program, the structure will be fa ...

  9. Solution Printed OTFT Driven Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF11BT05

    ABSTRACT: Leveraging Agiltron"s organic thin film transistor (OTFT) array design and printing technology and industrial leading developments and productions uncooled mid-infrared (mid-IR) detectors and detector arrays, we propose to develop a new class of high performance printed mid-IR detectors and detector arrays with integrated OTFT-based drive electronics. The approach is closely coupled w ...

  10. Novel Gas-Diffusion Electrodes for Carbon Dioxide Electroreduction

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT07

    ABSTRACT: As security of fossil fuel sources is diminishing, the generation of synthetic fuels may constitute a significant strategic capability for the USAF. GES and the INL propose novel catalysts and electrochemical cell components for the electroreduction of carbon dioxide to syngas. Catalyst composition will be formulated to optimize both product selectivity and cell efficiency. A prelimina ...
