  1. Near Real-Time Quantification of Stochastic Model Parameters

    SBC: APPLIED MATHEMATICS INC            Topic: A13AT009

    Mathematical models of physical and biological systems contain parameters that need to be estimated from measured data. Models with parameters distributed probabilistically require the estimates of a probability measure over the set of admissible parameters. We propose to use frequentist-based approaches for non-parametrically estimating probability measures that describe the distribution of par ...

  2. Ultra-Coherent Semiconductor Laser Technology

    SBC: TELARIS INC            Topic: A14AT005

    Spontaneous emission is a quantum mechanical process that represents the main source of phase noise in state-of-the-art semiconductor lasers, limiting their coherence, and their suitability for high-speed communication and sensing applications. This proposal aims to develop ultra-high coherence semiconductor lasers on the Silicon/III-V platform with a quantum linewidth of

  3. Robust Terrain-Adaptive Vehicle Planning and Control

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A14AT018

    Autonomous or teleoperated navigation of unmanned ground vehicles (UGVs) is difficult even in benign environments due to challenges associated with perception, decision making, and human-machine interaction, among others. In environments with rough, sloped, slippery, and/or deformable terrain, the difficulty of the navigation problem increases dramatically. In this effort, Quantum Signal, LLC, Un ...

  4. Terahertz Nano-Radio Platform with Integrated Antenna and Power source

    SBC: CREONEX SYSTEMS INC.            Topic: A15AT005

    Recent demand for short-range communications has risen sharply for both the defense and commercial sectors. Tactical communications with a deployed sensor network require secure short-range communications and high network density to enable robust data fusion and collaborative sensing for enhanced situation awareness for the war fighters. The THz nano-radio technology being developed in this projec ...

  5. Ion microtraps with in-situ cleaning and integrated passive and active optical pathways

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: A15AT009

    We will design, fabricate, and characterize an ion microtrap equipped with an integrated in-situ cleaning capability and with integrated optical access ports. The trap will be made of optical quality fused silica. The trap design and the fabrication process will allow for future developments, such as the addition of an integrated oven, UHV-maintaining subsystem, and rapid trap exchange with interc ...

  6. System for Precision Direction-Finding, Anti-Jam and Anti-Spoof

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: A15AT013

    Assured position, navigation and time (PNT) require constant vigilance against intentional and unintentional sources of coherent and non-coherent interference. The Global Positioning System (GPS) is especially vulnerable to attacks and must be defended through electronic protection (EP) measures such as anti-jam (AJ) and anti-spoof (AS). The proposed effort will design and demonstrate GPS-based at ...

  7. Identification of Multiple Illicit Drugs Using a Handheld Detector Based on Chemiresitive Sensor Arrays

    SBC: Next Dimension Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16AT008

    Next Dimension Technologies and Caltech will jointly develop a handheld detector to meet the Armys need for a field-based illicit drug identification system. The project will focus on the design and development of a dual-mode chemiresistive sensor array capable of detecting key drugs of interest, including synthetic cannabinoids and opioids. Novel sensing materials, with enhanced chemical sensit ...

  8. Tunable Active HEterodyne Terahertz Imager (TAHETI)

    SBC: LONGWAVE PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17AT007

    LongWave Photonics, Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Virginia Diodes are proposing the use of the Terahertz Quantum-Cascade Lasers (QCL) combined with a Schottky diode detector for high dynamic range heterodyne imaging. Two single-mode, distributed feedback (DFB) QCLs with milliwatt power levels will be used as local oscillator and illumination for imaging. The QCLs will be downconverte ...

  9. Engineered Strain for Bioconversion of Food Waste to Fuels

    SBC: Technology Holding, LLC            Topic: A17AT011

    The proposed strategy in this STTR proposal for bioconversion of food waste to butanol uses the well-described Clostridium acetobutylicum organism to convert the carbohydrate to the fuel molecule butanol. Based on our teams many years of work with butanol formation and genetic studies of the organism and the advancement of recently developed genetic methods, the team will develop a set of genetic ...

  10. Method for Locally Measuring Strength of a Polymer-Inorganic Interface During Cure and Aging

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: A17AT016

    A robust, versatile and portable test system will be developed based on the NMR relaxometry/diffusomtry principles for thorough, reliable, expedient and economical nondestructive evaluation of the polymer/inorganic interface structure and properties. NMR relaxometry/diffusometry probes sensitive volumes that can be moved to scan the interface. This nondestructive test measures a number of paramete ...
