  1. High Performance Transistors on Flexible Substrates

    SBC: Nanosys            Topic: ST041005

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research Phase II project continues the successful work initiated under our Phase 1 program to develop a novel low temperature processing technology for the fabrication of low resistance ohmic source-drain contacts for high performance, nanowire transistors on low-temperature plastic substrates. In Phase I, we developed the instrument design, setup and init ...

  2. Embedded control of an Active Structural Integrity Monitoring System using interlaced PZT and Thin-Film Transistors

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: SB042035

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) is increasingly being evaluated by the industry as a possible method to improve the safety and reliability of structures and thereby reduce operational cost. However, the scalability and applicability of SHM systems for the monitoring of large structures is still a challenge. The goal of the proposed effort is to develop the capability for enhanced in-situ struct ...

  3. Low-Cost, Low-Power Radar For Small Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: Goleta Engineering            Topic: SB041025

    The team of GE and MMCOMM with support from UCLA and potentially the U of F will develop a demonstration model of the low-cost, low-power radar (LCLPR) and integrate it on a small UAV. The demonstration model radar will be based on the Lightweight MMW UAV SAR / MTI Radar (LUAVR) system currently being developed for CECOM on an SBIR Phase II+ contract with an expected completion date of 1 Dec 05. ...

  4. Backplane Optical Interconnection Technology Using Silicon-On-Sapphire Circuitry and BGA Packaging

    SBC: PEREGRINE SEMICONDUCTOR CORP.            Topic: SB031016

    The phase I program identified an immediate DOD need for FOCUTSpak technology in military avionics. Therefore, the goal of this program is to create prototype parallel modules suitable for applications such as the JSF, UAV and F16 programs. This prototype program will be driven by the requirements and specifications supplied by LMTS, the current manufacturer of parallel optical modules and syste ...

  5. Non-Invasive Hydration Monitoring

    SBC: PHILOMETRON, INC.            Topic: SB041012

    Improper hydration results in fatigue, loss of motor skills, impaired perception, decision making, and dizziness and possibly leading to death. Therefore, ensuring adequate hydration is critical. Common measures of hydration status are changes in body weight, plasma osmolality, urine osmolality and urine specific gravity. Each methodology has its strengths and weaknesses. However, these point ...

  6. Submarine Detection by Acoustic Retina Network

    SBC: Physical Optics Corporation            Topic: SB031023

    To address DARPA’s need to detect submarines in littoral areas using thousands of inexpensive sensors, Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to develop a new Submarine Tracking by Analogous Retina Formed by Immersed Strip Housing (STARFISH) system. The central system element compresses inexpensive sensor nodes combining a Kynar acoustic transducer, thin film battery, MEMS pressure or magne ...

  7. Eigen Spreading

    SBC: Silvus Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N04108

    MIMO wireless systems enable transmission of signals in time frequency and space. They can thus achieve significant capacity improvements without increasing bandwidth. Since the early work of Foschini, Gans, and Teletar, almost eight years ago, a tremendous amount of theoretical research has gone into maximizing throughput in a MIMO system via spatial multiplexing. To date, however, very little ef ...

  8. Passive Broadband Acoustic Imaging Network for Urban Warfare

    SBC: AETC, INC.            Topic: SB032042

    The current situation in Iraq is making it extremely clear that the urban environment is a chaotic and dangerous battle space. Currently available technology cannot provide the level of real-time situational awareness needed by each individual soldier. DARPA has determined that Sparse Conformal Acoustic Network (SCAN) technology, or soldier-worn acoustic-array “vests,” is a potential solution ...

  9. Piston Pump for Rocket Propellant Applications

    SBC: XCOR Aerospace            Topic: N/A

    The development of low cost pumps for rocket propulsion is critical to lowering the cost of satellite launch. The objective of this research project is to continue development of a piston pump begun in Phase I. At that time, a breadboard pump was testedand preliminary design was done for a flight-type pump. This development shows promise of extending the advantages of turbopumped rocket stages ...

  10. Vacuum Packaging for Resonant Microsystems

    SBC: MICROASSEMBLY TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB032027

    Resonant MEMS sensors offer high sensitivity for military applications, and their development will address billion dollar markets for automotive, aerospace, robotics and condition-based maintenance applications. However, high-performance resonant MEMS require expensive vacuum packaging for high-Q and intimate electrical integration. Although MEMS and CMOS processes are incompatible. The proposed p ...
