  1. Passive Collision Detection for UAV Sense and Avoid Systems


    Currently, Unmanned Aircraft Systems face limitations on their utilization in civil airspace because they do not have the capability to sense and avoid (SAA) other air traffic. Ability to detect collisions with low False Alarm and False Negative Rates are crucial for SAA. In Phase I, UtopiaCompression in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles successfully developed methods to ...

  2. Windable Lithium-ion Conducting Ceramic Electrolytes

    SBC: Chemat Technology, Inc.            Topic: A09AT011

    Interest in lithium metal-air batteries has been growing in recent years, along with the demand for lighter power sources for devices ranging from plug-in hybrid vehicles to laptops. In lithium-ion batteries, the electrodes are made of materials such as graphite, while in a lithium-metal battery, the anode is made up entirely of lithium metal, and the surrounding air can act as the cathode. Lithi ...

  3. Robotic System for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: A09AT029

    The R-NOTES platform serves as an innovative and unifying system architecture for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) to be used in both the civilian and military sectors. While NOTES has recently emerged as a logical step beyond laparoscopic methods in minimally invasive surgery, several technological hurdles, largely associated with flexible instruments, remain before widespr ...

  4. Broadband Obscurants for Visible and IR Countermeasures

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: A08T025

    Successful military operations require dominant control of the electromagnetic spectrum in the battlefield. Smokes and obscurants are becoming increasingly important to block the function of enemy optical tracking systems and sensors during day and night operations. Fielded munitions are optimized for either the visible or infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. A single device that b ...

  5. Integration of 360-Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Panoramic Imager

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: A09AT017

    This proposal aims to develop and demonstrate a novel fused sensor system capable of detecting bullets in real time and over a 360o field-of-view. The bullet detection is based on a retrodirective noise-correlating radar that also provides the bullet bearing in real time. The bearing information will be transformed into a track through space with real-time external processing in a PC or PDA. Th ...

  6. High Performance Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A09AT007

    Currently there is wide variation in QCL performance at different wavelengths. Performance of new generation of QCLs recently demonstrated at wavelengths near 4.6 & #956;m exceeds the performance of legacy QCLs at other wavelengths by a wide margin. Much of the progress at 4.6 & #956;m was made under DARPA"s EMIL program. The objective of the present Phase II proposal is to experimentally valid ...

  7. Improved Sensing Using Simultaneous Deep UV Raman and Fluorescence Detection

    SBC: Photon Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09AT019

    This proposal addresses the need to increase the probability of detection (PD) and reduce the probability of false alarm (Pfa) for non-contact, real-time sensors for trace levels of biological and chemical targets using simultaneous detection of Raman and fluorescence emissions. Raman spectroscopy is a spectroscopic method that provides information about molecular bonds in target materials. ...
