  1. Video Analysis for Nighttime Surveillance and Situational Awareness

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Recent events in both Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the need for credible and timely situational awareness on the ground. Of key importance is the ability to locate specific individuals of interest and to quickly provide that information to central command so that appropriate action can be taken. An automated video-based surveillance system for covert monitoring of a small area of interes ...

  3. Adaptive Broadband Linearization for Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: PHASEBRIDGE, INC.            Topic: ST041003

    An investigation of a broadband analog optical modulator linearization scheme is proposed. The scheme is based on the combination of multiple semiconductor modulator devices, driven from a common electrical input. The linearization is accomplished in the optical domain, making the approach suitable for wideband microwave applications that have frustrated previous attempts at electrical pre-distort ...

  4. Low Cost Fabrication of 2G Wires for AC Applications

    SBC: AMERICAN SUPERCONDUCTOR CORPORATION            Topic: ST041002

    Second Generation (2G) High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) wires based on the YBCO coated conductor are expected to find use in many commercial and military applications not accessible to the First Generation (1G) BSCCO HTS wires. However, the use of these 2G wires in certain applications, such as synchronous generators with both superconducting rotor field windings and armature windings, requ ...

  5. Stress Induced Micro/Nano Caloricparticle For Improved Thermoacoustic Refrigeration

    SBC: FORTIS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: ST041001

    Traditional refrigeration systems based on the compression and expansion of refrigerant gases are complicated and limited to large dimensions. The pumps and compressors required makes it difficult if no impossible to scale down the system to miniature sizes that would be portable. Thermoacoustic based refrigeration systems promises to provide solid state refrigeration with no moving components, ...

  6. Computational Biology Platform Technology for Cellular Reprogramming

    SBC: IREPROGRAM, LLC            Topic: ST17C001

    Methods for interconversion between cell types (cellular reprogramming) are currently discovered through resource intensive trial and error. Experiments may test a multitude of transcription factors to identify correct combinations that influence cell fate. In addition, reprogramming approaches commonly use stem cell intermediates such as induced pluripotent stem cells (iPSCs), which are generated ...
