  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 ...

  7. Improved Kit for Chemical Detection

    SBC: AGENTASE LLC            Topic: N/A

    Agentase seeks Phase I STTR support to develop a kit of sensors for the detection of chemical weapons. The proposed effort builds upon an active program to develop chemical sensors based upon Agentase's patented enzyme-polymer biosensor technology. Workwill be conducted in two major areas. First, a prototype vesicant sensor will be crafted using similar approaches and techniques as those used i ...

  8. Nanocapusle Coatings Utilizing Biomolecules to Detect and Nano MgO-Cl2 adduct to Neutralize the Biological Agents

    SBC: NANOMAT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The ease with which small countries and terrorist groups can now obtain biological warfare agents has escalated the need to provide the war fighter and civilians alike with miniature, easy to use, disposable instruments for detection and identification ofpotentially hazardous biological agents. Traditional methods for detection and identification of microorganisms, viruses and or their products la ...

  9. Optimal Bioaerosol Sampler

    SBC: MANNING APPLIED TECHNOLOGY            Topic: N/A

    The threat of biological attack can be mitigated by deployment of acost-effective bioaerosol sensor network. For U.S. forces inparticular, the high false alarm rate of the Biological AerosolWarning System is very costly. This project will demonstrate thefeasibility of a novel bioaerosol sampling system to enhance opticaltriggering. The sensitivity and selectivity of FT-IR instruments canprovide ra ...
