  1. Real-Time Range Sensing Video Camera for Human/Robot Interfacing

    SBC: BOULDER NONLINEAR SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: T502

    In comparison to stereovision, it is well known that structured-light illumination has distinct advantages including the use of only one camera, being significantly less sensitive to background clutter, and not requiring the target object to have nonambiguous features. But because structured-light illumination requires a scanning process, it is inappropriate for humancomputer interfacing where the ...

  2. Automated Detection of Steganographic Content

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF04T008

    Colorado Engineering, Inc., a small woman owned business, and the University of Colorado at Colorado Springs are teaming to develop a Stegi@work architecture for an extensible, distributed application that can be utilized to detect steganographic content in media files, alert the user, and either mitigate (destroy) the content if possible or quarantine the files as appropriate. The key distinguis ...

  3. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF03T016

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that the state-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do n ...

  4. High Temperature Acoustic Noise Reduction Materials

    SBC: Guigne Space Systems Inc.            Topic: T602

    The proposed innovation is to use combustion synthesis techniques to manufacture ceramic-based acoustic liners capable of withstanding temperatures up to 2500?C. Combustion synthesis or self-propagating high temperature synthesis (SHS) is a novel technique used by Guigne Space Systems Inc. to produce many advanced high-temperature materials and composites. The materials have a ceramic matrix (alum ...

  5. Waveguide coupled high speed plasmon optical modulator

    SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: AF04T013

    Silicon is the dominant material for electronic devices, but basic material properties have limited its use for optical devices. Passive components such as waveguides, splitters and multiplexers have been demonstrated on silicon wafers. Most active photonic devices have been made with materials such as gallium arsenide that cannot be grown directly on silicon electronics. The development of act ...

  6. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis Throught Latent Semantic Analysis


    We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to be built upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LSA) methods and software tools to validate and refine the UAF. We will also use LSA as the underlying analysis engine for the software tools, which will provide support for pro ...

  7. Low Noise PAV Ducted Propeller using Automotive Manufacturing

    SBC: Munro and Associates            Topic: T701

    A critical barrier for GA to serve as viable and volume personal transportation is the lack of a cost-effective, yet open-growth, Lean Design and manufacturing technologies using automotive manufacturing technologies in for new personal airplanes. Munro & Associate and Michigan SATS share a vision, ?The CAR of the FUTURE is an Airplane?. This STTR?s goal is to create an innovative, Lean Design PA ...

    SBC: Opteos, Inc.            Topic: AF04T025

    An innovative electromagnetic wave detection and measurement system based on broadband, non-intrusive, miniaturized electro-optic (EO) and magneto-optic (MO) sensors will be developed in order to evaluate the effects caused by short duration burst or pulsed EM waves incident on electronic circuits. Due to the compact size and non-metallic construction, the EO and MO sensors can be placed within cl ...

  9. Organic Based Flexible Transistors and Electronic Devices

    SBC: Organicid, Inc.            Topic: AF04T010

    The work outlined in this proposal is directed toward the development of materials and fabrication processes for organic-based complementary circuits. New and improved n-channel (electron transporting) semiconductors will be synthesized and characterized at Northwestern University. These materials will possess a mobility of about 1 cm2/V-s and will be combined with p-channel FET materials such a ...

  10. Three Dimensional Volumetric Terahertz Scanning for Aerospace Non Destructive Evaluation

    SBC: TeraMetrix, LLC            Topic: T702

    In this Phase I STTR project, we propose to develop the critical innovations necessary for a high speed three dimesnional terahertz (THz) tomographic imaging system for aerospace non destructive evaluation (NDE) applcations. NASA and the Aerospace industry are beginning to utilize THz reflection imaging (for example, examining the space shuttle external tank sprayed on foam insulation for voids a ...
