The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Dual use, non-cryogenic operating temperature, mid-infrared laser

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Future IRCM laser transmitters are being developed based on optically pumped GaSb mid-infrared semiconductor laser, however, the current technology requires the laser to be operated at cryogenic temperature. Aculight and MIT Lincoln Laboratory propose toinvestigate methods to increase the operating temperature of these semiconductor lasers, which will dramatically decrease the cost of the laser t ...

  2. Space Qualified One Micron Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    We propose a Yb:SFAP laser system, using a novel resonator scheme, that will provide over 1 J per pulse output at 100 Hz at high efficiency, in a package far more compact, lower mass and efficient that conventional systems. The high-pulse-energy poweroscillator architecture is especially suited to space platforms where weight, volume, cooling and efficiency are particularly important. The propos ...

  3. High Power Mid-Infrared (2-10 Micron) Diode Laser Development

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Advanced IRCM lasers and systems, currently in development, require mid-infrared semiconductor lasers with very non-standard design parameters. The proposed effort will investigate the performance of commercially grown GaSb based materials and optimizetheir performance for use in unique laser transmitter designs, which will be directly traceable to future IRCM systems. The proposed mid-infrare ...

  4. Extending the Infosphere to Mobile Platforms Using Optimized COTS Technologies

    SBC: AGILEDELTA            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate methods for extending the Battlespace Infosphere to mobile platforms using optimized COTS technologies. The 1999 USAF Scientific Advisory Board report titled Building the Joint Battlespace Infosphereidentifies the eXtensible Markup Language (XML) as one of the most promising technologies for representing JBI information objects. Indeed, many DoD use ...

  5. Spray Cooling in Micro-gravity Applications


    Evaporative spray cooling systems are perhaps the only systems capable of the high power density thermal control anticipated for future spacecraft. However, evaporative spray cooling in the micro-gravity environment poses particular challenges foreffective system design because of the complications imposed by the

  6. Micro-Discharge Micro-Thruster Technology Development

    SBC: EWING TECHNOLOGY ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase 1 effort will develop micro-discharges to power a micro-thruster rocket. The micro-discharges and arrays of these devices are made using semiconductor processing methods. Ultimately they will be very inexpensive to manufacture in largenumbers. We will explore enhancing the power deposition rate in low molecular weight gases appropriate for high thrust. We will examine the curre ...

  7. Biological Effects Pattern Recognition Tool Using Multivariate Statistical Data Reduction


    We propose multivariate data reduction, interpretation and pattern matching techniques for classifying and testing genomic, proteomic, and metabonomic profiles against patterns of toxicity. For each type of toxic exposure, these analyses will perform: 1)data normalization and validation; 2) data reduction; 4) class discovery; 5) class prediction. The innovation is in the application of hierarchica ...

  9. Determination of the Mechanisms for the Plasma Deactivation of Biomaterials


    Based on several experimental results during Phase I, MicroEnergy Technologies has analyzed and sequenced the protein that initially leaves Bacillus bacteria that reveals deactivation of spores. We are proposing a unique plasma mechanism:(1) spore membranes are ruptured as seen in SEM micrographs of plasma treated biomaterials,(2) uniform glow discharge noble-gas argon and air plasmas produced di ...
