  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. Interactive Acoustic Simulation in Urban and Complex Environments

    SBC: Impulsonic, Inc.            Topic: A11aT006

    Outdoor acoustics simulation plays a vital role in several army and defense-related applications, such as minimizing the noise profile of reconnaissance vehicles to avoid counter-detection, optimizing sensors and systems for tactical advantage, and pinpointing the origin of gunshots using their acoustic signatures. Outdoor acoustics prediction technology is needed to efficiently model large, compl ...

  3. A Fast Wave-Based Hybrid Method for Interactive Acoustic Simulation in Large and Complex Environments

    SBC: EE Boost Inc            Topic: A11aT006

    EE Boost Inc. proposes to develop a new, fast and accurate hybrid wave-based method for acoustic simulation in large and complex environments. The hybrid method combines two efficient methods: the pseudo-spectral time-domain (PSTD) method and the enlarged cell technique (ECT). The PSTD method is extremely fast and accurate in computing fields in large cuboids without internal boundaries and interf ...

  5. 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 ...

  7. Precise fabrication of photonic integrated systems using low cost nanoimprint process

    SBC: Sinoora Inc.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this STTR proposal, we propose to develop a cost-effective and high-fidelity nanoimprint process for the fabrication of integrated photonics devices. VLSI photonics applications require a hig-level of control on device-to-device uniformity. Nanoimprint lithography (NIL) holds promise to overcome the current technological challenges in lithography while being cost effective at the same time. One ...

  8. Snapshot Raman Spectral Imager

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: A09AT009

    Applied Quantum Technologies proposes the development of a snapshot Raman spectral imager for chemical imaging applications with a 1-5 meter standoff. Standoff chemical imaging methods are typically point-based, making scan times impractical for situations where a wide area needs to be surveyed. The high spectral resolution needed to take advantage of the specificity of Raman spectroscopy limits t ...

  9. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Johnson Research & Development Co Inc            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: Providing electrical power for long duration hypersonic flight is a technology that is required to bring about this revolutionary mode of transport. Whether for weapons delivery or for space access, the long duration missions anticipated require a novel approach to the generation of electrical power during flight. Scramjets contain no rotating shafts from which typical generators or mec ...

  10. Electrical power generation for sustained high speed flight

    SBC: Rivis, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT25

    ABSTRACT: The potential of scramjet engines for use by the U.S. military would revolutionize countermeasures enabling rapid responses to global hot spots. The scramjet traveling at hypersonic speed cannot use rotary power typically employed at sub-Mach velocities, while auxiliary power units and batteries add weight, volume, and system complexity. Thus, alternative power sources are sought to ai ...
