  1. 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 ...

  2. Ultra-Compact, High Range-Resolution LADAR for the Individual Soldier

    SBC: Advanced Scientific Concepts, LLC            Topic: SB032039

    The Phase I study verified that a 3-D flash ladar weapon sight is feasible. This Phase II proposal is for an extremely advanced dual-sensor, multi-use system based on the Phase I study, a new weapon sight and modern warfighting concepts; the upgraded weapon sight serves also as a reconnaissance and communication tool. The proposed Multi-Sensor Active Lightweight Imaging System (MSALIS) is a quantu ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Streak Tube Imaging Lidar for Naval Autonomous Vessel Survival (STIL-NAVS)

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: SB031022

    STIL-NAVS will use STIL (streak-tube imaging lidar) technology to produce accurate ocean wave field maps. In Phase II, Areté Associates will adapt an existing Areté breadboard sensor. STIL-NAVS is planned to image waves sampled at 36Hz and at a lateral distance of 50m to 150m from a mast height of 10m with a 532nm laser diverged over a field-of-view of 7 deg. In the first year base period, STIL- ...

  5. Advisable Web Assistant for Extraction of Time-Critical Information

    SBC: Fetch Technologies            Topic: SB032037

    We will develop an advisable, self-learning “assistant” capable of monitoring, extracting and assessing data from multiple heterogeneous sources. The system, called InTIME (Intelligent Trainable Information Monitoring and Extraction system) extends our existing commercial technology for gathering and harvesting remote data, from both Web sites and databases. Specifically, InTIME is concerned ...

  6. 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. ...

  7. Uncooled, C-Band, Multi-Wavelength DWDM Transmitter enabled by Adaptive Self-Monitoring

    SBC: INFINERA CORP.            Topic: SB032046

    This project uses adaptive self-monitoring to enable uncooled operation in a harsh environment of a C-band, wavelength selectable, multi-wavelength DWDM transmitter. The program will utilize novel sensors monolithically integrated into the transmitter PIC to intelligently monitor and provide feedback to adaptively and independently control the key parameters of the transmitter array. The design ...

  8. Active Optical Remote Sensing System for Ground Contamination Detection

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: AF03005

    The DARPA Phase II proposal addresses the development of an active optical sensing system, materials database so as to develop an instrument for non-contact detection of surface contamination. The ISC team is developing a technique that has the potential for real-time detection and identification. The Phase I effort was to develop and demonstrate a technique that can be applied to an airborne s ...

  9. Early/Late Gate, Binary-PPM, and Data-Rate-Doubling Technologies for Optical CDMA

    SBC: MENDEZ R&D ASSOCIATES            Topic: NSF02056

    Optical Code Division Multiple Access (OCDMA) is compatibility with bursty, asynchronous communication protocols, and therefore supports new capabilities in (1) access, metropolitan, and fiber-to-the-premise (FTTP) networking; (2) avionics integration; and (3) covert communications (steganography). The impediments to OCDMA achieving this potential include (a) complexity of implementation and (b) m ...

  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 ...
