  1. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  2. Intracellular Detection of Small Molecules in Live Cells

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: AF11BT09

    ABSTRACT: Protection of first responders who are exposed to hazards including chemical warfare agents (CWAs) is a very critical need. The need is derived from not only their welfare but their ability to respond, protect the community and provide logistical support to the response. A simple exposure monitor would provide critical information to the first responder and allow them to respond accor ...

  3. Superconducting Parametric Amplifier

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: A14AT010

    HYPRES, in collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory and ISQC, proposes to transition superconducting parametric amplifier technology into a robust line of products. In Phase I, we will develop three varieties of superconducting low-noise amplifiers (LNAs) in compact cryogenic microwave packages. These are two types of standing wave devices, lumped-element Josephson parametric amplifier (LJPA) and ...

  4. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  5. Pantograph: Secure, Cross-domain Object Models

    SBC: ATC-NY, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Most cross-domain information flows require some human intervention to ensure that the requirements for releasability are met. Such intervention is expensive and slow, and can form a bottleneck in operations. Unfortunately, fully automated sharing of information across security domain boundaries is also fraught with difficulties due to problems with identifying releasable information, a ...

  6. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  7. Broad-Spectrum PV Devices Based on Charged Quantum Dots

    SBC: Optoelectronic Nanodevices LLC            Topic: AF13AT13

    ABSTRACT: This project addresses the need for high-efficiency broad-spectrum PV cells. The proposed original PV design is based on quantum dots with built-in charge (Q-BIC), where the dot charging is realized by selective doping of dot medium. The preliminary data demonstrate that the charged dots placed in a single p-n-junction strongly enhance harvesting and conversion of sub-bandgap photons an ...

  8. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.

  9. Electrically-Small Superconducting Wide-Bandwidth Receiver

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: AF11BT02

    ABSTRACT: In this STTR phase II, HYPRES and University of California San Diego team will demonstrate a small size, weight and power, wideband (2 MHz to 2 GHz) receiver prototype based on SQUID array technology. Our SQUID array designs are based on highly linear bi-SQUID and SQUID cells arranged into a 2-dimensional (2D) array. The 2D arrays are fabricated using high-temperature superconductor I ...

  10. High efficiency up- and down-converting infrared nanoparticles

    SBC: Nanoscience Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF11BT24

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II proposal will capitalize on the success of Phase I to further develop stable and optically efficient fluorescent particles that absorb and emit light in the infrared part of the spectrum and lack any visible light emissions. The specific goals of Phase II will be to further research infrared nanoparticles to increase their brightness with an emphasis on production scalabi ...
