  1. Compact CMOS-Compatible Optical Transceiver

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF14AT13

    ABSTRACT: Close integration of photonic devices with silicon complementary metal-oxide semiconductor (CMOS) electronics can yield significant performance improvements in many applications. The recent development of novel integrated structures in silicon including waveguides, resonators, and photodetectors will enable dramatic reductions in size, weight, and power for components implementing compl ...

  2. Development of an Innovative System for Cryodeposit Mitigation and Redmediation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF12BT10

    ABSTRACT: Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) and the University of Tennessee Space Institute (UTSI) will develop an innovative system to measure and control the cryodeposit layer thickness that develops on cold (~20 K) surfaces in cryogenic radiometric calibration chambers. Currently removing the cryo-layer involves a lengthy process that warms the entire cryo-system to desorb the cryo-layer that incr ...

  3. Improving the Physics of Applied Reverberation Models

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services And Instrumentation Systems Inc            Topic: N13AT026

    The proposed work will address the core physics underlying acoustic reverberation as related to properties of the ocean environment and properties of the acoustic sources, receivers and waveforms that make up ocean-going acoustic systems of interest to the U.S. Navy. Present day active acoustic system performance models, which contain reverberation models as an essential component, are over twenty ...

  4. Particulate Composite Mixing Processes

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT22

    ABSTRACT: Triton Systems proposes to develop a novel computational model for complex particulate composite mixing processes and the resultant microstructures in high shear environments. Control of mixing of granular and particulate composites (e.g., particles in a polymer matrix) to achieve homogeneous mixtures is essential in many important functional material systems and applications, including ...

  5. FIXATE: FIXational Automatic Target Extraction

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N14AT008

    During a mission naval UAS collect large volumes of data but only sub-sections of this data contain information relevant to the mission. In order to find the important information analysts must sift through ALL of the data. FIXATE is a biomimmetic object classification system to automatically pre-process the data and cue the operator to sections of data that are likely to contain important informa ...

  8. Light-Weight Atmospheric Diving Suit

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: N13AT029

    The Navy is seeking a new light-weight Atmospheric Diving Suit (ADS) design. This suit must be less than 400 lbs; at this weight a diver will be able to self-propel using his legs and fins. The system must ensure the divers safety at a working depth of 1000 ft of sea-water; protecting the body from the high external pressure at depth, while providing a sustainable 1 ATM internal pressure. Mide in ...
