  1. A Web-based Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2)

    SBC: Riverside Technologies Inc.            Topic: 823

    In Phase I, we identified the need for a readily accessible web-based framework that integrates a credible hydrologic model with climate change and forecast products for hydrological impact studies and water supply projections.  The focus in developing the Phase I Climate Change Drought Decision Support System (C2D2S2) prototype was to develop an infrastructure that addresses the critical dec ...

  2. High Pressure Specimen Chamber

    SBC: TECHSHOT, INC.            Topic: 814

    Even today as a highly technical and advanced world civilization, the physiology of deep sea fish and invertebrates continues to remain mysterious and poorly known.  Past specimen containers fail to either have the size or volume needed or lack the robustness for high pressure containment of in many cases, lack the repeatability necessary to ensure a reasonable lifetime of continuous use.&nbs ...

  3. Visible Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Spatial Light Modulators

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are many applications for hyperspectral image detectors, but for the detectors to be widely accepted standardized calibration protocols must be developed. This research aims to bridge this gap through the development of a commercially available hyperspectral image projector (HIP) system. The proposed effort is to build a prototype visible HIP system to generate calibrated, realistic imagery ...

  4. Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KPAC) System for Mulit-kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable cryostat technology required to reach the ultra-cold operating temperatures of TES arrays (50 to 100 ...

  5. Development of Broadband VIPAs in Mid-to Long Infrared

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA designs do not work in the spectroscopically important mid- and long-infrared wavelengths, and do not have large operating bandwidths compatible with femtosecond combs. Incorporating resolution improvements from ...

  6. PolARES: A Recognition-based Crisis Decision System

    SBC: ALPHATRAC, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    Crisis decision-making is difficult and error-prone because it involves time-urgency, physical and emotional stress, chaotic conditions, and poor data availability/quality. This SBIR project will investigate, develop, and deploy a web-based software system (called PolARES) that supports key decisions for crisis management and battlefield applications. This system will produce a revolutionary impr ...

  7. Protecting Polymers from the Natural Space Environment with Films Grown Using Atomic Layer Deposition

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF07T011

    Polymers in space are subjected to various threats including hyperthermal oxygen atoms, UV and VUV photons, and ions.  These threats can degrade the polymer and lead to static charge accumulation.  This Phase II proposal will build on the Phase I work which demonstrated that inorganic films grown by atomic layer deposition (ALD) can protect polymers such as Kapton, Teflon and PMMA.  Al2O3 ALD f ...

  8. Large Format Uncooled Focal Plane Array

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A07098

    Uncooled focal plane array (FPA) technology has evolved such that good performance can be achieved in the long wavelength infrared with 17 micron pixel pitch if noise is not limited by readout circuits. Improved bolometer bias and signal processing readout circuitry was demonstrated by design and analysis on Phase I to achieve high performance in small pixels. These circuits will interface with hi ...

  9. Ultra-lightweight Infrared Camera

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: SB072004

    Small UAVs have more than proven their value in the military world and will also be utilized for homeland applications such as border security, law enforcement and situational awareness. Future micro-UAVs (MUAVs) will offer greater utility and lower cost and at the same time require reduced size, weight and power infrared cameras. Uncooled focal plane array (FPA) technology has evolved such that h ...

  10. Atom Interferometer Modeling Tool

    SBC: Boulder Labs, Inc.            Topic: ST071001

    Develop software visualization & modeling tool to facilitate the design and implementation of experiments pertaining to cold and ultracold atoms. The tool, LiveAtom, will allow users to layout conductors, calculate or approximate the resultant fields and atomic interactions, and provide a three-dimensional visualization of the results.
