  1. Sterilization and Decontamination of Surfaces Contaminated

    SBC: APPLIED PULSED POWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Decontamination of military personnel, equipment and facilities that have been exposed to deadly biological and / or chemical warfare agents is of critical concern to U.S. Armed Forces. Conventional technologies used for decontamination and sterilization suffer from drawbacks that include toxic effluents, radiation hazards to personnel, and very long time scales for the decontamination process pr ...

  2. Ultra-strong Thermally-Stable Grating Fabrication through t

    SBC: D-Star Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pulse tube cryocoolers are the cutting edge of regenerative cryocooler development. A series of recent improvements (the orifice, various bypass arrangements) have brought pulse tube cooler performance into the range of Stirling and Gifford-McMahon coolers. A bi-directional Ranque/Hilsch vortex tube performs the functions of both heat-rejecting heat exchanger and orifice, offering further improvem ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Combat Simulation Analysis of Advanced Technology Weapons

    SBC: HPS Simulations            Topic: N/A

    PC-based combat simulation software is now capable of accurately recreating the conditions and end results of modern battles. One of the specific uses of such a software package is to evaluate the performance of a proposed modification or entirely new weapons system in battle situations. This will insure the system meets with expectations and requirements, before additional expensive development ...

  6. Efficient Upconversion Blue Laser Source

    SBC: Lasergenics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    An efficient blue laser concept is proposed based on two-photon upconversion of diode laser near-IR radiation into the blue in a doped-crystal fiber. The upconversion process offers certain performance advantages not readily realized from a system containing nonlinear elements, such as resistance to damage and more relaxed requirements on the laser medium. With thulmium as the doping ion, wavelen ...

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Electro-optical (EO) sensors on future aircraft will be used for targeting and situational awareness and will be required to have a number of demanding technical characteristics. These characteristics include multifunctionality, wide angle operation, open architecture design, and low cost. A key technical challenge to achieving these goals is the development of inexpensive, high degree of freedo ...

  8. Autonomous Detection of Missile Targets Using Neromorphic M

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    Work to be performed in this program is based upon years of innovative technology development invested by personnel at Nova Research. Techniques proposed here are patterned after biological principles which, when applied to finding targets which are moving against highly cluttered infrared backgrounds, will be shown to exhibit remarkable performance. Such techniques produce highly superior resul ...

  9. Seeker Sensor Fusion Optimization and Visualization System

    SBC: Pacific Advanced Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force has a large number of sensors that can be used for pattern recognition to aid target detection and identification including: SAR (synthetic-aperture radar), MMW (millimeter-wave), IIR (imaging infrared; SWIR, MWIR, LWIR) and LADAR (laser radar). When hyperspectral imaging in the infrared is added, then the number of potential sensor (color) combinations and associated data increases ...

  10. Flexible Polymer Modulators for Large Conformal Antenna Arr

    SBC: PACIFIC WAVE INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Recent developments in radar and communication technology have created the need for large area, lightweight, conformal antenna systems. In this proposal flexible, high speed, new polymer optical modulators are used to meet these requirements. Polymer optical modulators now represent the key enabling technology that will permit a new generation of optically interconnected large antennas and anten ...
