  1. Efficient Materials for Optical Cryocoolers

    SBC: ThermoDynamic Films LLC            Topic: CBD171001

    This Phase-II SBIR proposal directly addresses the need to improve the size, weight and power, SWaP, of optical cryocoolers. In particular, theproposers will work toward increasing the efficiency of optical cryocoolers by incorporating cooling materials that require less input laserpower to achieve a given heat lift. The new cooling materials will be high-purity crystals doped with active rare-ear ...

  2. Fate and Fortune: A Story-Based Algebra Simulator of High Seas Trade

    SBC: MidSchool Math, LLC            Topic: 99190018R0005

    Purpose: This project team will fully develop and test Fate and Fortune, an online class-wide intervention where grade 8 students learn algebra within a story-based game. Research demonstrates that students who do not succeed in algebra are more likely to eventually drop out of high school. When students begin Algebra I, a lack of conceptually meaning and understanding can be further reinforced by ...

  3. Digital Data Recorder for Gauges in High Speed Weapons During Survivability Testing

    SBC: Dynamic Systems And Research Corporation            Topic: DTRA092014

    The development of a high-shock data recorder for use in projectile penetration and pyrotechnic environments is critical to understanding the loads that warhead systems are exposed to in tactical applications. Data from recorders mounted inside warheads can be used by researchers to measure loads on the warhead, fuze, and explosive fill components as well as validate analytic and computational mo ...

  4. Low Cost LWIR Interferometric HSI System

    SBC: SPECTRUM PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: CBD09108

    Due to the potential detection benefits offered by hyperspectral imaging spectroscopy, this is an area of great interest in terms of early detection of plume threats. The major constraint is in costs of components. Under this SBIR, our team will investigate innovative advances in the integration of uncooled microbolometer technologies to determine the potential for reducing detector cost and com ...

  5. Ultra High-Speed Spectroradiometry for Contamination Reconnaissance and Surveillance

    SBC: SEMIOTIC ENGINEERING ASSOC. LLC            Topic: CBD09107

    We propose to develop and demonstrate the prototype for a novel technology to be used as a ultra-high-performance, ultra-high-speed spectrometry engine at the heart of Thermal Luminescence systems for standoff detection of surface contaminants. The proposed system will be able to detect transient thermal events in the fundamental vibrational fingerprint region of chemical warfare agents and of mos ...

  6. Diaphragm Pressure Gauge

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: DTRA02010

    A phase I program establishing the feasibility of using a diaphragm pressure gauge (DPG) to measure the loads on a survivable shield that is an element of a debris mitigation system for Plasma Radiating Sources (PRS). These loads on a survivable shield have not been measured. DMS performance analyses have emphasized the criticality of such measurements. Simulator, e.g. Decade Half, performance ...

  7. Reflex Triode

    SBC: KTECH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "Reflex triode bremsstrahlung sources potentially provide warm X-ray sources (20 keV to 500 keV), capable of generating high doses (~10 cal/g gold) over exposure areas of ~20 cm2. This needed capability allows experimental verification of warm X-ray inducedthermomechanical response, SGEMP, and box IEMP models for achieving component and system certification to hostile environments.In a reflex trio ...

  9. A NOVEL FIELD PROGRAMMABLE GATE ARRAY FOR SPACE APPLICATIONS

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Mission Research Corporation proposes the development of a unique FPGA (field programmable gate array) for applications in space and other military and civilian environments requiring the versatility of reconfigurability with retention of the configuration in an unpowered state. The FPGA will be capable of being configured once and retaining that configuration for a minimum of 10 years even with ...

  10. An Improved Plasma Opening Switch for DECADE

    SBC: NumerEx            Topic: N/A

    CURRENT ATTEMPTS TO USE THE PLASMA OPENING SWITCH (POS) FOR DECADE HAVE NOT YET BEEN ENTIRELY SUCCESSFUL DUE TO THE APPARENT INABILITY OF THE SWITCH TO OPEN EFFICIENTLY TO A HIGH-IMPEDENCE LOAD. RESEARCH DIRECTED TOWARD IMPROVING THE PERFORMANCE OF THE POS IN THE LONG-CONDUCTION TIME REGIME HAS BEEN FRUSTRATED BY THE INABILITY OF COMPUTATIONAL TOOLS TO OPERATE IN THE PARAMETER REGIMES OF INTEREST ...
