  1. Novel Biomimetic MEMS Based Infrared Sensor

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This program addresses a new approach to IR imager that closely mimics biological organisms sense principals, having advantages in sensitivity, energy efficiency, reliability, and cost as compared with the competitive approaches. The innovation is based onincorporation of sensitive polymer-molecular with a highly efficient micro-machined thermal-mechanical PFA that directly converts IR image into ...

  2. Large N ASW False Alarm Reduction

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Large N ASW problem can be summarized as pervasive short-range sensors with limited communication capabilities. The driving questions are how are false alarms controlled-not necessarily from an individual sensor node, but from the overallfield-performance of individual sensor nodes, the amount of information and frequency of communication. From its inception, distributed detection has produc ...

  3. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A sensor has data to send to a human observer. In the present case the sensor is a camera, and the data consists of an image. When commanded to do so, the image is heavily compressed, passed to the modem, and sent by robust, low data rate acommsgateway, then to the observer. The sensor system retains the uncompressed image in a file. If the observer finds the (compressed/decompressed) image to ...

  4. Compact Induced Current Hall Thruster

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional Hall thrusters are difficult to scale to very small sizes. The proposed concept is a new type of compact plasma accelerator that addresses these scaling issues. It resembles a Hall thruster, taking advantage of the heritage of this proventechnology, but the current is driven inductively. It has the advantage of needing no cathode. While inductive coupling has been successfully dem ...

  5. Sensors and Methods to Handle UAV

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) play an increasingly important role in many military scenarios. For the Navy to incorporate these vehicles into its critical missions, there has to be an efficient protocol to handle them on the decks of aircraft carriers.Current handling approaches and procedures have substantial limitations. For example, GPS-based taxiing via pre-set coordinates assumes that the a ...

  6. Organic Solar Cells Using Star Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Continued research and development on anew class of organic photovoltaics is proposed based on star conducting polymers. These materials will provide superior processibility and transport properties that determine the ultimate efficiency of the devices.The star polymer architecture employs linear conjugated arms radiating from a centrosymmetric core, and therefore, unlike the linear arms alone, fa ...

  7. Nanostructured Substrates for Surface-Enhanced Raman Scattering

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program aims to demonstrate nanoengineered metal surfaces which will reproducibly enhance the Raman scattering of chemical and biological agents while still providing selective detection at trace concentrations. With proven success infielding SERS systems and published results in nanomaterials engineering, EIC Laboratories, Inc. and Clemson University are uniquely poised to collabora ...

  8. Sensors and Methods to Handle UAV

    SBC: Energid Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Autonomous vehicles navigating the flight deck of an aircraft carrier must recognize which flight deck director is assigned to them and which signals that director intends for them. They must be able to generate and follow a notional path to an assignedspot based on the director's instructions. But relying on the director's signals alone is not enough. They must be constantly aware of their sur ...

  9. Biomimetic Microstructure Formation of High Performance Silk Films and Fibers

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The complex biological processing used by the silkworm and spider to create silk fibers yields exceptionally high strength, stiffness, and extensibility. In this proposed program, Foster-Miller will again join with Prof. David Kaplan and theBiotechnology Center at Tufts University to develop fibers and films based on reconstituted silkworm silk that possess unique and tailorable properties for e ...

  10. Design, Fabrication and Testing of a Versatile Outfitting Attachment System Kit for Naval Sandwich Panels

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites and UMass-Lowell will extend a successful Phase I analytical and experimental investigation of outfitting attachment hardware optimized for composite sandwich panels used as shipboard structures. The KCI/UML team will work with Bath IronWorks to ensure that attachment system solutions developed during the program are compatible with demanding and diverse needs associated with Nava ...
