  2. A 3D Printed Head Phantom for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Current Model Validation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Cognitive skills/capabilities are important for the military personnel to fulfill tasks and to ensure mission efficiency and success. In the past decade, there are abundant researches suggesting that non-invasive brain stimulation via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) holds great promise to enhance a soldier's cognitive performances. Although models to predict the tDCS curren ...

  3. Design and Fabrication of Highly Linear Electro-optic Modulators

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: AF151133

    ABSTRACT:Modulator linearity and efficiency, in addition to bandwidth, are important parameters in characterizing a modulator. In general, improving modulation efficiency is highly desirable since higher modulation efficiency allows lower RF signal to impose equivalent change in the optical beam whereas improved linearity increases the dynamic range available to analog signals conveyed and process ...

  4. Narrowband LWIR Filters

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: AF151141

    ABSTRACT:Hyperspectral imaging is a technique used to simultaneously capture spatial and spectral information of an object scene, making it a valuable technique for applications in remote sensing and military battlefield environments. In the case of long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging, a hyperspectral approach offers an opportunity to improve upon the detection capabilities of standard broadband sen ...

  5. Low-Latency Embedded Vision Processor (LLEVS)

    SBC: Nanowatt Design, Inc            Topic: AF15AT13

    ABSTRACT: The goal of head-worn display systems is to increase situation awareness and reduce operator workload. The urgent need is for higher image resolution and lower system latency, while meeting constraints on head-borne weight and power. Current processor solutions cannot meet increased requirements. The challenge is that power consumption is proportional to the amount of data being handled, ...

  6. Compact Passive Millimeter Wave Sensor for GPS-denied Navigation

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    ABSTRACT: Under the proposed effort, PSI will leverage a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize the low size, weight, and power sensors required for UAV implementation. This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make use of the full aperture of the aircraft thereby maximizing achievable resolution. This sensor ...

  8. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume supply of quality MUTC PD chips. In the first six mont ...

  9. STUDY AND EVALUATION OF FIBER REINFORCED DOWELL BARS FOR USEIN HIGHWAYS

    SBC: Etc Engineers Inc.            Topic: N/A

    DOWEL BARS HAVE TRADITIONALLY BEEN USED AS AN IMPORTANT LOADTRANSFER MECHANISM ON OUR FEDERAL HIGHWAYS. A SIGNIFICANT PROBLEM OCCURRS WITH THE USE OF THESE BARS DUE TO RUST AND RESULTANT SPALLING AND CRACKING CONCRETE. COMPOSITE REINFORCING BARS (CRB) HAVE BECOME WIDELY USED FOR CRACK CONTROL IN MANY REINFORCED CONCRETE STRUCTURES EXPOSED TO AGGRESSIVE ENVIRONMENTS. A LIMITED AMOUNT OF DATA IS AVA ...
