  2. Large Field of View Microscope for Rapid, High-Resolution Imaging

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: NA

    In this SBIR effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop and deliver a high-resolution (< 1.2 micron) microscope that can rapidly (< 60 seconds) image a large field of view (> 1 cm2). The instrument will provide a wide array of imaging modalities, including brightfield, darkfield, fluorescence, quantitative phase, and Rheinberg imaging. In Phase II, Nikira Labs will fabricate, test, and deliver a ...

  3. Single-Mast Transmit-Receive Antenna for Long-Range 4- 5.5 MHz Coastal HF Radars

    SBC: CODAR OCEAN SENSORS, LTD            Topic: 824

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The U.S. High Frequency Radar (HFR) network contains more than 140 coastal stations that provide hourly two-dimensional coastal surface currents. Approximately one-third of these are Long Range (LR) systems that transmit in the 4–5.5 MHz frequency band with offshore ranges and resolutions of 160-220 km and 6 km, respectively. Currents provided by this network have numerous ap ...

  5. Adaptive mask flow photometer

    SBC: Actinix            Topic: 822

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: A flow micro-photometer is proposed that can measure absorption and backscatter from single aquatic particles including phytoplankton, detritus and minerals. This instrument will make use of a novel adaptive diaphragm to define an analysis region of interest that exactly matches the size, shape and orientation of each particle being analyzed. A micro-fluidic chip will be used t ...

  6. Design of an Autonomous, Green Powered, Mobile Coastal Monitor

    SBC: Tridentis Advanced Marine Vehicles LLC            Topic: 821

    TECHNICAL ABSTRACT: The mobile coastal monitor project is designed to prove out the research done in Phase I using a Proof of Concept demonstration craft. The Proof of Concept demonstrator will be a geometrically scaled version of the craft designed during Phase I. The Phase I craft, the Advanced Coastal Monitor (ACM) was designed to use state-of-the-art green power supplies and apply them as the ...

  8. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...

  9. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  10. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...
