  1. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.

  2. 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 ...

  3. Decision Making under Uncertainty for Dynamic Spectrum Access

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT02

    ABSTRACT: Due to scarcity of spectrum, Dynamic Spectrum Access (DSA) becomes a needed technology to improve the utilization of electromagnetic spectrum for DoD satellite communication. However, current DSA approaches are developed for terrestrial communications without addressing the unique challenges for SATCOM environments such as error-prone spectrum sensing, high mobility, and large coverage. ...

  4. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...

  5. Physical Sub-Model Development for Turbulence Combustion Closure

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: AF13AT12

    ABSTRACT: The innovation proposed is a computationally-tractable, physics-based, portable turbulent combustion modeling strategy for application to a wide range of Air Force aero-propulsive systems, including augmentors, liquid rockets and scramjets. This modeling strategy will be implemented within an Application Programming Interface (API) library suitable for easy integration within Air Force ...

  6. Autonomous Broad Spectrum Environmental Sentinels

    SBC: Nevada Nanotech Systems Inc.            Topic: A13AT017

    We propose a platform for aerial environmental monitoring based on the integration of two advanced technologies for the first time: a lightweight, flying robotic platform capable of hovering and swarming, and a compact, low-power chemical sensor platform called the Molecular Property Spectrometer (MPS): a robust, low-cost, silicon-chip-based micro-electro-mechanical system (MEMS) that has been use ...

  7. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: N/A

    Dramatic differences in the diffusivities of the constituents of novel thin film materials and structures limit material perfection under far from equilibrium growth conditions. We will develop a new light-mass ion source, compatible with the low pressurerequirements of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), to provide selective enhancement of the motion of surface atoms. Helium or hydrogen ions incident ...

  8. Mitigation of Aero-Optic Distortions by Active Flow Control

    SBC: COMBUSTION RESEARCH AND FLOW TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: N/A

    "Laser beam interactions with free shear turbulent structures in the context of a recessed cavity window will be investigated. The proposed program will investigate the aero-optic degradation of a laser beam, housed within the cavity, and its remediationusing high frequency flow control. Beam wander and displacement statistics, obtained via a Position Sensitive Detector (PSD), will be complemented ...

  9. Layered, 3-D RF/Optoelectronic Microstructures with Precision Kinematic Mount

    SBC: Avanti Optics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to investigate the feasibility of using Avanti's self-aligning kinematic optoelectronic mounts for active 3-D RF/optoelectronic microstructures. We believe the unique benefit of our approach is the precision alignment of optoelectronic devicesfor coupling to the outside world (and layer-to-layer). This unique benefit is coupled with additional benefits of easy manufacturability, direct ...

  10. Biological Decontamination for Forward-Deployed Airbase Using Low Temperature Air Plasmas

    SBC: ASI TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "ASI's plasma consultant, Igor Alexeff, PhD, has invented, tested and patented an atmospheric pressure, dc of 60 Hz AC discharge, that has been operated in air, helium, argon and nitrogen. The apparatus has in laboratory testing successfully destroyedmicroorganisms. The apparatus does not require a complicated, fragile RF power supply for operation. We propose it to be developed into equipment for ...
