  1. New Technology and Genetically Engineered Insects for Sustainable Food, Nutrition, Health and Other Applications

    SBC: ALL THINGS BUGS LLC            Topic: SB163002

    As the human population grows, it is critical to decrease consumption of materials from the planet and its ecosphere. The world adds 70 million people annually. The UN expects the population to grow to over 9 billion 2050. Climate change, soil degradation, unstable water supply all reduce the ability of traditional farming to satisfy food needs. Population increase and scarcity of resources and fo ...

  2. GHz, Octavespanning Photodetectors for MWIR/LWIR

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SB153002

    Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in MWIR/LWIR detector performance, including: High speed (5 GHz); high sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz1/2); broad spectral response (Octave); and thermo-electric cooler (TEC) operating temperature. No existing detector meets these demanding performance parameters. Phase I successfully designed and demonstrated an octave s ...

  3. GHz, Octavespanning Photodetectors for MWIR/LWIR

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SB153002

    Exploitation of new chip-scale optical frequency comb sources demands improvements in the performance of MWIR/LWIR detectors. These detectors must meet the following specifications: High speed ( < 5 GHz), high-sensitivity (NEP < 1pW/Hz^1/2), broad spectral response (Octave), all at TEC operating temperatures. At present, no single detector exists that meet these demanding performance parameters. I ...

  4. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated Unipolar Barrier InGaAs

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM12002

    In this Phase II program, improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies, which Amethyst has successfully demonstrated in the Phase I program: unipolar barrier (e.g., nBn) detector structures, and defect passivation via hydrogenation. This two-pronged approach addresses the main performance limitation of extend ...

  5. Low Dark Current, Extended Wavelength SWIR Sensors Using Hydrogenated nBn InGaAs

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM12002

    Improved performance SWIR sensors with extended wavelength response to 2.5 microns will be developed using two disruptive technologies with which Amethyst has demonstrated success: nBn detector structures and defect passivation via hydrogenation. Similar to conventional extended wavelength photodiodes, the improved sensors will based on mismatched InGaAs grown on graded buffer layers on InP substr ...

  6. Universal Longwire Antenna Module for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06003

    A longwire antenna module is proposed, incorporating a length reduction technique that yields 25-75% length reduction with minimal impact on gain. A resonant monopole antenna operating at 535kHz is approximately 440ft long; length reduction techniques will reduce this to between 69ft and 134ft depending upon the desired gain. A shorter/lighter longwire antenna will allow the aircraft to be more ...

  7. Conformal Appliqué Antennas for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06002

    An antenna system is proposed for the purpose of FM, TV-VHF, and TV-UHF PSYPOS broadcast applications. The antenna system incorporates a radiating structure that is small, light weight, and conformal. A circularly polarized beam is broadcast from an aircraft towards nadir, illuminating the region below the craft with a horizontally-polarized signal, yielding polarizations pointing in both the No ...

  8. Micro Gas Analysis System for Detecting CW Agents

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: DOESC000817c

    Attacks using chemical warfare (CW) agents are a principal threat to the US homeland and deployed assets. This proposal focuses on demonstrating key capabilities required to develop a micro-gas analysis (MGA) system that provides orders of magnitude improvement in sensitivity and a very high degree of chemical selectivity to achieve false alarm rates that match laboratory gas chromatographs with ...

  9. Miniaturized Low Power Tactical Repeater System

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM04006

    Short range line-of-site communication is an integral part of the SOF mission. In nearly all regions where SOF operations take place, there is little if any short-range line-of-site communications infrastructure that can support these missions. The objective of this project is to design and eventually build a small (less that 64 cubic inches, targeted) lightweight (less than 1 lb. targeted), man ...

  10. Hubrid Hull Forms and Drag Reduction for Conceptual High Speed Submersibles

    SBC: MECHMATH LLC            Topic: N/A

    Department of Defense is interested in development of small fighter-like vehicle for combined underwater and surface motions at high speeds. The vehicle requires carry weapons under water. The weapons may generate high additional drag, and drag reductionis the key aspect in design of its hybrid hull. Hydrofoil removes missiles from water at highest speeds, but the problem is to reduce the drag bef ...
