  1. Active Sensor Technologies for Interceptor Seekers

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: MDA10016

    ABSTRACT:Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAV) havebeen the most dynamic growth sector of the aerospace industry this decade and it is projected to double overthe next decade. The most significant catalyst has been the enormous growth of interest in UAVs by the US military, tied to operations in Iraq and Afghanistan as well as the general trend towards information warfare and net-centric systems. UAVs ar ...

  4. Rapid, reliable and repeatable platforms for cell-free prototyping

    SBC: SYNVITROBIO INC            Topic: SB152001

    Cell-free platforms are a disruptive technology that can dramatically speed up the design-build-test cycle of biomolecular engineering. However, most currently available cell-free platforms are optimized for protein expression rather than for prototyping. Synvitrobio proposes to develop and commercialize a next-generation cell-free platform that allows for rapid, low-cost, high-throughput, and rep ...

  9. Small Pixel Hybridization (< 5 um) for Infrared FPAs

    SBC: Attollo Engineering, LLC            Topic: AF141196

    ABSTRACT: Imaging applications such as persistent surveillance and tactical imaging require multi-megapixel imagers to achieve both high resolution and wide fields of view (FOV).Since the pixel size drives the size of the lens and other components in the optical train, the pixel size must be small in order to keep the size and weight of the entire imager manageable for different platforms.We propo ...
