  1. Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) Guidance and Navigation

    SBC: ATHENA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Aurora Flight Sciences and Carnegie Mellon University Robotics Institute propose a joint program to develop a generalized MAV navigation and guidance framework applicable to both hovering and fixed wing configurations. The proposed cooperative program seeks to apply image processing methods and devices developed at CMU for a wide range of MAV navigation with special emphasis to the indoor and urb ...

  2. Advanced Technology for Demilitarization of Plastic Bonded

    SBC: GRADIENT TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    Gradient Technology in conjunction with Professor M. Hillmyer of the Department of Chemistry at the University of Minnesota proposed to develop advanced technology to recover and convert the explosive and urethane binder found in plastic bonded explosives. This technology provides a unique reclamation, recovery, and reuse opportunity for dramatically reducing the disposal cost of technology munit ...

  3. Ultrahigh Quality GaN Films

    SBC: Silver Sky Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of chemical beam epitaxy to grow ultrahigh quality GaN thin films will be developed. This process will allow the growth of GaN on high thermal conductivity substrates and enable the fabrication of precision superlattice structures. GaN will be grown using Ga effusion cells and ammonia-in an ultrahigh vacuum environment. This growth rate will be in the 1 micron per hour range at tem ...

  4. Wide Bandgap Heterojunction Bipolar Transistors for X-Band


    In this Phase I STTR, Sterling Semiconductor--in cooperation with the University of Colorado at Boulder--will develop novel heterojunction bipolar transistor (HBT) semiconductor devices for microwave applications. Specifically, the team will develop I gallium nitride (GaN)/silicon carbide (SIC) N-p-n HBTs, consisting of a gallium nitride emitter on a p-type silicon carbide base and an e-type silic ...

  5. Broadband Front Ends for Radar & Digital Receivers

    SBC: THESUS LOGIC, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Theseus Logic/SUNY-Stony Brook team is proposing to develop, demonstrate and commercialize Rapid Single Flux Quantum (RSFQ) circuit designed using NULL Convention Logic (NCL). Phase I of this program will demonstrate, by simulation and modeling, the feasibility of implementing logic gate structures in RSFQ technology which can exploi the effective delay insensitivity of NCL. In Phase II the te ...

  6. Novel Mathematical/Computational Approaches to surveillance

    SBC: Trident Systems Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Current algorithms for data compression are founded on three basic principles:transformation, quantization, and entropy coding. The transformation attempts to remove statistical redundancies from the input, thereby reducing the data to a smaller more manageable set. The quantizers convert samples into a finite set of levels, typically in a way that minimizes some predefined error measure (e.g. mea ...

  7. Microrover for Tactical Land Warfare

    SBC: VIA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this research effort is to design a mobile robotic platform, and the related operator interfaces required for remote operation, which enhance a soldier's abilities to accomplish mission goals. This system will be modular in design, scaleable, low cost and rugged. The size and weight of these platforms will range form a meter long and 200 pounds, to a few centimeters long and abo ...

  8. An Experimentally and Numerically Trained Neural Network Co


    The autonomous control of a hypersonic missile from launch to target is a very challenging problem. F&S proposed to use a combination of experiments using MEMS and numeric simulations using CFD, to train a neural net for the control of micro-jets. The trained neural net control system would be able to control a hypersonic missile throughout its flight. Such a system could possibly be used to re ...

  9. "Polymer-fullerence Ironically Self-Assebled Monolayer Phot


    Revolutionary ionically self-assembled monolayer (ISAM) methods of creating multifunctional thin-films monolayer by monolayer have recently been proven to yield self-assembled, electronically and phonically--active polymeric thin fi!ms. F&S and Virginia Tech have demonstrated that the ISAM technique can be used to fabricate both polymer light emitting diodes and inherently noncentrosymmetric elect ...

  10. Operational Outer Zone Energetic Charged Particle Model


    Earths outer radiation belt, which consists of electrons with hundreds of keV to MeV energies, is a highly dynamic and driven environment.The large variations in electron flux, if unaccounted for, can cause satellites that travel through this complex region to experience anomalous behavior ranging from temporary satellite outages due to electrostatic discharge events in system electronics to poten ...
