  1. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  2. High-throughput Direct Structural Screening for Drug Lead Compounds

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: A06T032

    U.S. Government personnel deployed in tropical and neotropical regions continue to be at risk for developing malaria. Drug resistant malaria parasites are becoming more common in these areas, increasing the risk of American personnel developing a serious, life-threatening disease. Cross resistance between drugs is becoming much more common. Due to the emergence of drug resistance, derivates of k ...

  3. Online Treatment of Subretinal Neovascular Membranes from Laser Eye Injury

    SBC: ORION International Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A06T030

    The eye is extremely sensitive to laser radiation and can be permanently damaged from direct or reflected beams. In the military environments, laser injuries may be a result of battlefield laser rangefinders, target designators, or enemy action. Individuals involved in high energy laser research or medical therapeutic lasers are also at risk from direct and reflected laser radiation. One possible ...

  4. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: MDA05T005

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for space targets for RADAR calibration and test of advanced discrimination technologies and concepts. There is a need for well-characterized cooperative space targets that can decrease reliance on expensive BMDS integrated flight tests. The space target system would consist of at least 2 objects: a cone of approximately 1-m diameter, ...

  5. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  6. Light Filament Sensor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A06T017

    When high powered laser pulses are focused in air, light filaments with extremely long propagation distances and high intensities can form. In this STTR Phase I project, we will investigate the potential of laser light filaments for sensing applications. Direct comparisons will be made between ultra-violet and near-infrared filaments and an assessment of suitability these filaments for standoff ...

  7. Nanodielectrics Dielectrics for High Power Capacitors

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: AF06T002

    Future power conditioning, control electronics and directed energy weapons will require significant energy storage for a wide range of power applications. Systems will depend on capacitors to deliver high current and high voltage under repetition. In order to find practical embodiment on mobile platforms, significant advances in compact power sources will be required. In response this need, TP ...

  8. Crested Tunnel Barriers for Fast, High Density, Nonvolatile Memory Devices

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Crested multi-layer tunnel barriers have been proposed, which offer a revolutionary solution to overcome density to speed trade-offs characteristic of present data storage technologies. Practical implementation of the proposed technology will involve useof thin film materials which are readily manufacturable and CMOS-compatible. A critical need exists for experimental verification of the theoret ...

  10. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...
