  1. 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 ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. A Novel Microwave Sensor for Non- Destructive Evaluation of Silicon Nitride Bearing Balls

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF083109

    In this proposal, Alphasense, Inc. details the development of a novel microwave NDE sensor for defect inspections in silicon nitride bearing balls. The key innovations of this proposal include the following: a) the use of the spherical bearing ball as a dielectric resonator, thus enabling us to correlate the resonance characteristics of the bearing ball with various defects; b) the measurements in ...

  9. New DNA/RNA Sequencer for Rapid Assessment of Exposure to Infectious Agents

    SBC: COMPACT MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The threat of terrorist or military attack using biological or chemical warfare agents is one of the largest concerns to U.S. military forces. Development of defense initiatives that can be implemented to decontaminate personnel, equipment and buildingsare required to counter the effects of such an attack. A series of dendrimer-quaternary ammonium compound (QAC) biocides have been identified that ...

  10. Artificial Intelligence Hybrid Range Scheduler

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Scheduling is a complex, NP-hard problem that challenges the use of any single solution technique. In Phase I, we built a model that uses our multi-technique Quantum Leap Problem Solving Engine to solve a representative but simplified version of the AirForce Satellite Control Network (AFSCN) contact scheduling problem. The system demonstrated that it could schedule the hundreds (500 to 600) of t ...
