  1. Wideband Photonic Sensor System

    SBC: MAGIQ TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB091002

    In our Phase I SBIR MagiQ Technologies developed and modeled optical signal processing techniques to enable simultaneous transmit and receive (STAR) from a single wideband aperture. Our method exploits the broadband linearity of optical components. In Phase II of this program we propose to further develop and prototype this system to show wideband high isolation from the transmitter to the receiv ...

  2. Visualization, Human Systems, Information Systems

    SBC: SYSTEMS & TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH LLC            Topic: ST12A004

    We propose to develop a toolkit and environment for social media visualization, exploiting scientifically grounded design principles embodied in visual thinking design patterns (VTDPs). Much like software design patterns, VTDPs are reusable blueprints for design of new interactive visualizations: they describe the steps in the visual thinking process that capture operations occurring in a computer ...

  3. VISION: Video Identification of Structures, Intentions, Objects, and Networks

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082021

    Decision support tools for target identification and alert generation depend upon the classification of static and moving objects. Existing methods for object classification rely primarily on static information available in single-frame images. The data from long-range video surveillance assets are usually not sufficient to distinguish the objects from one another, and even if high-resolution data ...

  4. Upconverting Films

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072034

    Infrared (IR) detection approaches have required significant development of highly sensitive arrays for a wide range of area. How to engineer materials to achieve high IR sensitivity and be deposited onto lenses, goggles, or other substrates are challenging and important to military and commercial applications. For many military missions, a cost-effective, ultra-compact, and efficient infrared d ...

  5. Ultra-High Precision Laser Isotope Monitor for I3CO2, CO180 and CO170

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: 831RC

    Greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions are primary drivers of global climate change. Hence there is a crucial need to quantify their sources and sinks. A powerful method to constrain source and sink strengths is the analysis of the relative proportions of isotopic variants of GHG’s in atmospheric samples like those collected globally by NOAA’s Cooperative Air Sampling Network. Measurements that are ca ...

  6. UBER-HEB: Universal Biologically-inspired Environment for Research: Hierarchical Ersatz Brain

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: ST081006

    In Phase I of UBER-HEB, the Aptima team made significant progress designing a non-von Neumann hierarchical universal learning system based on the Ersatz Brain Architecture (EBA). An experiment using an EBA implementation showed emergence of module assemblies, a critical step in validation. In Phase II, we propose to focus sharply on an important, well-characterized problem ideally suited to the EB ...

  7. Three Dimensional Isotropic Metamaterials Lens(1001-293)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    Triton Systems’ team proposes to identify and develop a metamaterials-based lenses system capable of imaging beyond the diffraction limit in the visible spectrum. The use of negative index of refraction to resolve features beyond the diffraction index limit has been demonstrated for wavelengths outside of the visible. Triton’s team will expand the theory and experimental work on metamaterial ...

  8. Thermally Insulated Structural Aerogel Composites for Satellite

    SBC: ASPEN AEROGELS, INC.            Topic: SB082008

    Multi-Layer Insulation (MLI) is the most commonly used thermal insulation material for spacecraft applications due to its low thermal conductivity in vacuum. However, MLI has several problems including thermal shorts, is labor intensive to fabricate and install and its performance is negatively affected when insulating complex shapes; therefore significant improvements are needed in satellite ins ...

  9. Tactical Telehaptic Communication (HAPTAC)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SB082025

    Communication between soldiers on the battlefield is currently limited to voice and hand signaling. However, the realities of combat, including loud noises and visual obstructions, degrade these communications modalities. The U.S. Department of Defense is interested in the use of tactile human interfaces as a supplemental communications channel between soldiers. A field-deployed haptic communica ...
