  1. Scale up of EO polymers and their utilization in novel nano-imprinted sub-wavelength waveguide-based Modulators and Arrays

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: The Phase II technical objectives follow directly from the Phase I effort, where all tasks necessary for RF photonic receiver fabrication were demonstrated. The Phase II effort will pursue two major objectives: 1) further development of SEO100 EO polymer based chips, packaged devices and arrays in collaboration with University of Dayton (antenna designs), taking advantage of multiphoto ...

  5. Chemical Analyzer System for In Situ and Real Time Surface Monitoring for Composition Control During Synthesis of Compound Semiconductor Films

    SBC: Staib Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A13AT011

    The area of thin film growth has progressed rapidly, producing many high performance new materials which require accuracy of their atomic composition to perform as expected. Any method to provide real time in situ information about the elemental composition of the growing surface is highly valuable for these new, complicated materials. Utilizing a new instrument design, the Phase I project team ...

  7. Conformal, Light-Weight & Load-Bearing Antennas Based on Conductive Textile Threads

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: AF11BT13

    ABSTRACT: Low frequency antennas provide us with the most critical challenge in small UAVs due to the limited available real estate on the platform. The primary objective of our Phase I research was to fill a critical technology gap in small UAVs for low frequency communication and SIGINT applications. We carried out a very comprehensive Phase I research to develop light-weight, conformal volumet ...

  8. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...
