  2. Comparative Gene Sequence/Expression Analysis of Pathogenic and Non-Pathogenic Micro-Organisms

    SBC: EGEA BIOSCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Biological warfare (BW) and bioterrorism are significant and increasing global threats. Genetic engineering made possible by the Human Genome Project may allow the development of novel BW agents and escalation of the BW threat. Major problems inbiological weapons defense are the identification of the biological agent, determining the pathogenic genes, and providing counteragents including vaccin ...

  3. Computer Assisted Reasoning for Robust Strategies

    SBC: EVOLVING LOGIC            Topic: N/A

    Decision makers often confront deep uncertainty where standard decision support tools fail to provide support. Sophisticated planners seek strategies robust across a wide range of plausible scenarios. But most analytical tools attempt to optimize for aparticular future lending little aid in the search for robust minimal regret strategies. Robustness is more challenging computationally than opti ...

  4. A Novel Omnidirectional Infrared (OMIR) 3D Sensor

    SBC: TECHNEST, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this SBIR is to investigate a novel OMIR (OMnidirectional InfraRed) imaging sensor concept, which provides a low-cost solution to obtain video rate 360-degree IR images for situation awareness for the space/aerial and groundvehicles. In our Phase I effort, we have successfully demonstrated the feasibility of the OMIR concept. Specifically, our accomplishments include: (a ...

  5. MEMS RF Switches with Ultra-High Switching Speeds

    SBC: GEOSPACE RESEARCH INC            Topic: N/A

    The proposed investigation focuses on the research and development of a fundamentally new, high-speed, radio-frequency (RF) switch. It is designed for frequencies in the range 1-100 GHz. The switch is predicted on thin-film microelectromechanical systems(MEMS) technology with piezoelectric actuation. In general, piezoelectric materials develop strain when an electric field is present, which allows ...

  6. High Performance Uncooled Sensor for Automotive Applications

    SBC: INDIGO SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    In Phase II of this program, Indigo Systems proposes to complete the design of a 324x124 uncooled microbolometer focal plane array (FPA) and fabricate the Readout Integrated Circuit (ROIC). The FPA will serve as the key enabler of a low-cost,high-sensitivity, high-reliability night vision sensor (NVS) with utility in both commercial and military applications. The sensor is intended primarily for ...

  7. Case-Based Planning and Construction of Adaptive Software

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Software development continues to be an ad hoc endeavor without much of a plan to guide the development. Nevertheless, software visionaries speculate that one day an engineer will be able to specify the function that a software module is intended toperform, and then a set of agents, each associated with a debugged module, would be able to coordinate among themselves and synthesize the desired resu ...

  8. Magnetic MEMS Switches for RF Missile Seeker Applications

    SBC: MICROLAB            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed here consists of design, fabrication, packaging, and characterization of latching magnetic RF MEMS switches operational from dc through 40GHz. The active switching component of the device is a movable ferromagnetic cantilever thatelectrically shunts a gap in an on-chip transmission line (CPW and/or microstrip) to turn the switch ON and opens the gap to turn the switch OFF. Packag ...

  9. Low-Cost, High-Speed, Efficient Generation of Commmunication Signals Using Chaotic Devices

    SBC: SYNCRODYNE SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    There is a need in both commercial and military applications for digital transmission methods that can operate at high data rates (several megabits per second end-user rate) in multi-user environments. Existing communication methods will be severelystressed by the difficulties of such an environment: Propagation anomalies such as multipath fading and various types of interference will require inte ...

  10. A High-Performance, Low-Cost Multi-Wavelength Source and other Advanced Components Based on a COEO

    SBC: OEwaves, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    OEwaves, Inc. proposes to design (Phase I), fabricate, and demonstrate (Phase II) a novel multi-wavelength optical source called a coupled opto-electronic oscillator (COEO) - for UDWDM communications applications. A single COEO simultaneously generates100 more stable optical carriers on a precisely fixed grid that cannot drift (e.g. 25 GHz, 12.5 GHz, 1GHz, or any other desired spacing) and will r ...
