  1. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    Under SBIR Topic N04-218, Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) developed and demonstrated candidate modifications to the existing DD(X) Integrated Undersea Warfare System’s High Frequency (IUWS-HF) bow sonar signal processor that would improve the sonar’s mine-hunting capabilities in refractive, multipath environments. In Phase I, we derived a localization algorithm that correlates measured ...

  2. Durable, High Performance Personnel Armor Plates for Current and Next Generation Threats

    SBC: M CUBED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03179

    A Phase I program was completed in which a non-ceramic SAPI solution was developed. The system contained a hard-faced metal matrix composite (MMC) tile in place of the brittle ceramic tile. Ballistic testing showed positive results and drop testing showed excellent durability. The Phase II program aims to continue the work, leading to an optimized, durable SAPI system. However, since the time ...

  3. High Frequency Optoelectronc Oscillator

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05043

    Low phase noise oscillators are core components for communications and radars. System timing jitter is fundamentally important for digital systems and phase noise is the figure of merit for RF systems. For multi-GB/s clocks, optoelectronic oscillators using optical delay for the clock period, appear to have significant advantages. The phase noise may be minimized because the delay variability li ...

  4. Near-Vehicle Situational Awareness and Omnidirectional Weapons Detection System


    This Phase II proposal addresses the Ground/Sea Vehicles, Sensors Technology Area and entails the development of a suite of video (visual) and radar sensors for detecting and declaring the presence of near vehicle threats including IEDs. Opportunistic hostile attacks present a constant threat to US troops. An effective omni-directional, situational awareness system would aid in force protection ...

  5. Improved Protein Manufacturing in Insect Expression Systems


    To improve insect expression system for large scale commercial production, it is important to develop a system that allows real time monitoring of the whole production process without physical sampling, and is able to produce proteins of high quality and high yield. Our Phase I study has demonstrated the feasibility that a new DNA transfer vector with 6 new features is able to express recombinant ...

  6. Automated Passive Target Signature Fusion

    SBC: SONALYSTS, INC.            Topic: N05046

    Despite significant advances in acoustic processing and data display techniques, passive sonar classification still involves a significant amount of human effort. During Phase I, Sonalysts, Inc. developed a proof-of-feasibility approach to an automated passive target signature fusion rule base, focused on the similar source fusion (SSF) requirements of the DDG-1000 program. Relying on our unequa ...

  7. Inconspicuous Taggant for Combat Uniforms

    SBC: TS&I (TECHNOLOGY SOLUTIONS & INVENTION L            Topic: A05183

    This development work will continue to explore innovative technologies to be added to textile fibers or fabrics used on combat uniforms for the purpose of combat identification. The proprietary material will be designed to work over all frequency ranges from short wavelengths to beyond the 12 micron range. This work will investigate technologies that will allow materials to be instantly and inte ...

  8. A novel LWIR/UV Sensor with Integrated Detector Multiplexing

    SBC: OPEL            Topic: AF05029

    LWIR sensing is currently uses MCT or QWIP arrays in narrow wavelength bands. For visible sensing, Si CCD’s are required and for UV, SiC arrays are used. On the other hand, lasercom is implemented with combinations of Si electronics and InP optical devices to form modular subsystems. By comparison, monolithic III-V’s circuits have the ultimate advantage of radiation hardness together with o ...

  9. N/A

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

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  10. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

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

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called
