  1. Low-Cost Chaos Radar

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: A11aT001

    Propagation Research Associates, Inc., (PRA) and Duke University propose to extend the recent developments of matched filtered chaos into a low-cost high range-resolution chaotic waveform radar. In the Phase I effort, PRA and Duke will design the radar system and build a prototype waveform generator that will exploit three essential properties of chaotic waveforms that can be applied to enhance r ...

  2. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  4. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial reduction in complexity, size, weight and power consumption over the present state of the art. As part of ...

  6. Solid State Thin-Film Batteries for Conformal, Ultralight, and High Temp Applications

    SBC: CSquared Innovations, Inc            Topic: N11AT006

    CSquared Innovations LLC has developed a novel plasma/laser manufacturing process for solid state thin-film Li-ion batteries which consolidates conventional material synthesis and deposition onto a single platform. This revolutionary technique can produce a fully solid state thin-film Li-ion cell in atmosphere with the ability to conformally apply the battery to nearly any surface. The equipment c ...

  7. Advanced Flame Resistant Resin System for Carbon Fiber Reinforced Composite Shipboard Applications

    SBC: Technova Corporation            Topic: N11AT014

    Shipboard structures can benefit from the relatively high performance-to-weight ratio, fatigue life, durability, processability and multi-functionality of polymer composites (versus metals). The fire, smoke and toxicity (FST) performance and the initial economics of composites, however, cannot match those of metals. Efforts to replace metals with composites in shipboard structures have emphasized ...

  8. New Affordable Energy Storage Technologies for Power Grids and Micro-Grids

    SBC: American Maglev Technology of Florida, Inc.            Topic: N11AT028

    AMT proposes a high density energy storage Electromechanical Battery (EMB) based on a unique flywheel system. The proposed module can both receive and deliver significant amounts of energy repeatedly. The system employs a novel ac homopolar motor design which guarantees a zero magnetic and dissipative loss during the storage cycle, thus eliminating what is the greatest loss component (1%) in compa ...

  9. High-level tools and languages for faster Intelligent Tutoring System(ITS) model development

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: N11AT032

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITSs) hold the promise of dramatically increasing the cost effectiveness of training. However, one contributor to the per-lesson cost effectiveness of ITSs is the significant effort that goes into creating instructional material. ITSs in many ways shift the costs of giving instruction to the costs of preparing instruction. Preparation costs generally are quite high. I ...

  10. Deterministic fabrication of aligned carbon nanotube array and device architectures

    SBC: Absolute Nano, LLC            Topic: OSD10T004

    In this Phase I STTR project, we plan to demonstrate a new platform for engineering the diameter and packing density of vertically aligned CNT"forests", based on a scalable"blade casting"method of spatially directed evaporative self-assembly of metal catalyst nanoparticles. Using these self-assembled catalyst arrays, CNT forests will be grown by atmospheric pressure thermal CVD, taking advantage ...
