  1. Optical Cryocooling for Space-borne Sensors

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT02

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop a light weight, compact, vibration-less and micro-scale cooler for space-mission conditions based on optical refrigeration using an all-fiber approach. Specifically, we will use a Tm+3-doped fiber laser to pump Tm+3-doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action on the affixed heat source. The cooling fiber is attached to the heating sample e.g., EO-IR detect ...

  2. Foldable/Rollable High Efficiency Solar Cell Modules

    SBC: OPTICOMP NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: A new method for manufacturing thin, flexible, portable high efficiency III-V PV modules that can be folded and rolled. In particular, IMM3J cells are lifted-off their growth substrate and transferred to a polyimide blanket sheet holding up to a few hundred cells. They are fully encapsulated. The interconnects are made with novel use of electrically conductive adhesives and polymers. Th ...

  3. RF Microplasma for Ozone Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT08

    ABSTRACT: Ozone generation for decontamination systems has been around for many decades but systems, such as dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), are not suited to field use and the high voltages employed present serious safety problems. RF-driven microplasma devices are a unique technology for low-cost and low-power-voltage plasmas in vacuum and in air up to atmospheric pressure with a number of ...

  4. A Novel, Flexible, and Comprehensive System for Mission Prioritized Lossless Data Compression

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) mission in complex test facilities results in large amounts of data. Moreover, the data may have different characteristics, including images from particle image velocimetry data, air flow data, etc. Finally, some of the data may come from a network of similar sensors. We propose a novel, flexible, and comprehensive system for mission prioritized lossless ...

  6. SWIR Image Sensor Based on SiGe Nanomembranes

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT14

    ABSTRACT: With a cutoff at 1.6 & #956;m, high carrier mobility, and the potential to be integrated with silicon integrated circuits, Ge offers the possibility to achieve large size arrays and small pixel pitch for high sensitivity SWIR imaging near room temperatures. In addition, integrating SWIR image sensors on flexible substrates opens new applications and opportunities for night vision system ...

  7. Miniature Quantum Gas System based on an Atom Chip with Integrated Optical Micro-Cavity

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: In the proposed work, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will team with MIT to develop a chip-based spin-squeezed atomic clock with a fractional frequency stability below the standard quantum limit. This will be accomplished by the development and fabrication of an atom chip that includes an integrated optical micro-cavity for confinement, imaging, and readout of the trapped cold atomic ense ...

  8. Security through Component-based Isolation Framework (SCIF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: Networked PCs are critical to the success of data-based missions, and the complex software they execute is both the source of their power and their prime area of vulnerability. Applications and services are often composed of multiple software components developed by different vendors or open source communities, who may in turn incorporate components developed by another tier of vendors. ...

  9. Policy Guided Isolation and Strategically Shielded Exposure: A Novel Approach to Secure Applications

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: It is very challenging to secure applications in today"s networked computer system where applications inherently share various resources and information. In this proposal, we propose a novel approach, called policy guided isolation and strategically shielded exposure, to protect applications in network environments. Our approach combines virtualization techniques with a Policy Machine t ...

  10. Securing Applications by Limiting Exposure

    SBC: SoftKrypt, LLC            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: This STTR Phase I project addresses exploit attempts being mounted against applications code and modules with vulnerabilities that need to be protected. The team's strategy is to"blacken"or isolate applications and the inter, and intra communications paths between them and the lnternet using innovative algorithms developed by Embry-Riddle Aeronautical University (ERAU). We plan to ...
