  1. Novel Biomimetic MEMS Based Infrared Sensor

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF03T005

    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 on incorporation of sensitive polymer-molecular with a highly efficient micro-machined thermal-mechanical FPA that directly converts IR image into ...

  2. Cooperative Search, Acquisition and Tracking by UAV Teams

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: AF04T011

    ALPHATECH and MIT propose to extend existing real-time mission manager, path planning, and video tracking technologies developed under DARPA, AFOSR, and AFRL programs to solve the Cooperative Search Acquisition and Track (CSAT) problem for multiple moving targets. This CSAT mission presents difficult challenges combining different types of tasking: area search, periodic track maintenance, focuse ...

  3. Active Silicon Nanophotonics based on Photonic Crystal with Quantum Dots

    SBC: Altair Center, Llc.            Topic: AF04T013

    ALTAIR Center in cooperation with University of Rochester proposes to develop a new class of active nanophotonic devices based on quantum dots embedded into photonic crystal microstructures fabricated in silicon-on-insulator waveguides. Due to extremely strong nonlinear optical and electro-optical properties and extremely short switching times, the silicon-based photonic crystal microstructures wi ...

  4. YBCO Coated Conductors with Reduced AC Losses

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: AF03T023

    This Phase I Project will produce RABiTS-based YBCO CCs which are suitable for the manufacture of YBCO Coated Conductors with reduced AC losses. The improvements are based on a novel approach in the production of elements of the conductor. Anticipated AC losses will be analyzed for magnetic field and frequency conditions resembling those experienced by synchronous generator windings and air core ...

  5. Automated Diagnosis of Usability Problems Using Statistical Computational Methods

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF03T001

    Poorly designed software and hardware systems are inconvenient at best; at worst, they are deadly. Usability evaluation techniques are designed to detect the potential for disasters and inefficiencies in poorly designed software. However, usability analyses are prone to failure due to conflicting usability frameworks, incomplete usability reports, and inadequate analysis tools. Aptima and the Ce ...

  6. Model-based Optimal System for Training (MOST)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: AF04T014

    The objective of the proposed work is to integrate a normative engineering model into an intelligent tutoring system. This system will allow continuous performance monitoring and adaptation of training based on performance assessment. To accomplish these goals a model will be developed that will allow us to define and conceptualize how novices and experts process information. The novice/expert di ...

  8. Ionic Liquid Lubrication

    SBC: COVALENT ASSOC., INC.            Topic: AF04T018

    The U.S. Air Force requires advanced lubricants (oils and greases) that can perform at elevated temperatures and under a high vacuum for military and aerospace applications. Additionally, the rapidly growing field of microelectromechanical systems requires advanced lubricants for moving parts incorporated into microscopic actuators. Based on preliminary data collected by us, we believe that Coval ...

  9. High Mobility Stable Crosslinked Conductive Polymers

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T010

    In this STTR program, EIC Laboratories is teaming with the University of Florida (Prof. John Reynolds group) to design a new class of charge-transporting electronic polymers that exhibit a high degree of organization, leading to high charge mobilities. Furthermore, the structures will be highly crosslinked, which will make them tough and less prone to destruction by chemicals or in the space envir ...
