  1. Improved electrodes for low-loss radio frequency devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A09AT015

    Understanding and minimizing RF loss in tunable components is key to the successful integration of this technology in high performance wireless devices. Filter applications, in particular, fundamentally require extremely low loss to operate efficiently. Agile’s high-frequency tunable filter development efforts using BST have found that loss due to surface or series resistance (Rs) is a significa ...

  2. A System to Analyze Facial Features to Enable Operator Condition Tracking (AFFECT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT006

    The duties of modern military personnel often require the completion of challenging tasks, in stressful environments, and with multiple demands competing for the warfighter’s focus. Measuring the stress, anxiety, uncertainty, and fatigue (SAUF) of the warfighter during a particular task would have multiple benefits: (1) commanders would be able to detect problems and reallocate workload or addre ...

  3. Integration of 360-Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Panormic Camera for Real-Time Detection and Imaging of Ballistic Threats

    SBC: Physical Domains            Topic: A09AT017

    Retrodirective pseudorandom-noise-correlating radar has already been demonstrated on small ballistic targets, such as sniper bullets. And detection occurs with enough range (a few tens of meters) to acquire bearing information (rangebin, azimuth, and elevation) and therefore develop a track in near-real-time. What is lacking is the connection between such radar performance on warfighter situatio ...

  4. Fiber Optic Raman Imager

    SBC: Optra, Inc.            Topic: A09AT009

    OPTRA proposes the development of a short wave infrared (SWIR) fiber optic Raman imager based on a multiple slit dispersive spectrometer. The key components include imaging optics, a fiber optic bundle, a dispersive element, and a SWIR focal plane array (FPA). The integrated hyperspectral imager allows for the simultaneous acquisition of 64x64 spatial resolution elements and 32 spectral resoluti ...

  5. Ultraviolet and blue compact laser sources for scalable quantum computing

    SBC: Kaai, Inc.            Topic: A09AT008

    In response to the Army’s STTR Topic A09A-T008- entitled “Ultraviolet and blue compact laser sources for scalable quantum computing,” Kaai Inc, proposes the development of a external cavity fiber coupled high efficiency GaN laser diode as a revolutionary source toward practical quantum computing based on ion trapping. Kaai is well suited for this effort as its co-founder, Dr. Shuji Nakamura ...

  6. High Performance Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A09AT007

    Currently there is wide disparity in QCL performance at different wavelengths. The new generation of QCLs recently demonstrated at wavelengths around 4.5 to 4.8 μm exceeds the performance of legacy devices at other wavelengths by a wide margin. Much of this progress was made under DARPA’s EMIL program. The principal objective of this proposal is to leverage our recent advances in QCL design ...

  7. Multifunctional composites for autonomous damage detection, indication, and repair

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: A09AT023

    Novel class IV building materials are needed to efficiently protect military structures from electromagnetic interference (EMI), blast, and emerging adaptive threats. Fiber-reinforced polymer matrix composites could be modified for this purpose by incorporating additives that can autonomously detect, indicate, and repair damage. Infoscitex Corporation (IST) proposes to develop a multifunctional ...

  8. Robotic System for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: A09AT029

    The objective of this project is to implement and demonstrate a new robotic system enabling Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) that improves surgical care of warfighters and their families. The proposed NOTES system will be used for many military and civilian surgery needs, especially on natural orifice diagnosis and treatment of acute appendicitis at a role 2 facility with re ...

  9. Bioinformatic Generated and Learned Acute Assessment Models (BioGLAAM)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A09AT027

    Hemorrhagic shock remains a leading cause of death for soldiers on the battlefield. The first 60 minutes following a traumatic injury is vital to saving lives; therefore, it is critical to provide medical personnel with real time monitoring of soldiers with traumatic injuries. Recent research indicates, however, that no single measure alone is sufficient to determine the severity of hemorrhage in ...

  10. Dynamic Metamaterial Structures

    SBC: Sensormetrix, INC            Topic: A09AT002

    It is proposed to develop and demonstrate dynamically tunable metamaterials using electrical biasing methods. Recent developments have shown the great promise of passive metamaterials; this project will build and demonstrate the first large area, dynamically tunable metamaterial structure, and will further enhance the benefits of transformational optics design methodologies.
