  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  3. Equipment and Facilities for Rapid Installation of Buried Innerduct Network for Utility Lines

    SBC: Outside Plant Consulting Services, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The feasibility of the universal placement of telecommunications and power supply lines below ground, as an alternative to their typically low-cost installation on utility poles, depends upon the availability of a cost-effective convenient method for placing and replacing cables belowground. A network of underground conduits constructed of field-assembled rigid sections, including straight segmen ...

  4. Monolithic Integration of Photonic and Electronic Devices for High Performance EPICs (Electronic-Photonic Integrated Circuits)

    SBC: ASIP, INC.            Topic: SB041031

    In Phase 1 we will demonstrate the feasibility of integrating high-speed InP-based HEMTs with ASIP's proprietary asymmetric twin waveguide photonic integration technology. A common source HEMT driver transistor will be integrated with a simple, asymmetric twin waveguide (ATG) compatible laser. In Phase 2, we will extend this feasibility demonstration to demonstrate an EPIC consisting of a single ...

  5. Deductive Spreadsheets

    SBC: DEDUCTIVE SOLUTIONS            Topic: SB043040

    By tapping into recent research in Logic Programming, Databases and Human-Computer Interaction, Deductive Solutions proposes to develop a deductive extension to the spreadsheet. This tool is intended as an automated assistant for the daily reasoning and decision-making needs of computer users, in the same way as the traditional spreadsheet assists them every day with calculations ...

  6. Hardware Assisted Electronic Circuit Simulation System

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041029

    In this proposal, we outline an approach for performing a complete electromagnetic analysis of electrical circuits in a fraction of the time that is currently possible. As clock rates increase, the need for such analysis grows. Current tools are inadequate to handle this burden. The computational times required excessively tax tools running on even the most state-of-the-art computers. To comba ...

  7. Chemical Nano-Imprint Lithography

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041030

    The rapid expansion in the electronics industry has given rise to what has become known as Moore's law. At its core, lies advances in lithography that enable the miniaturization of features patterned on semiconductor substrates. As the minimum feature patterned on modern integrated circuits approaches 100nm, projection photolithography is put under enormous pressure to satisfy the demands of indus ...

  8. Flat Head-Mounted Displays

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB041027

    A number of military situations require individual soldiers and pilots to instantaneously respond to complex visual scenes and make rapid decisions regarding potential threats. Text and graphics overlaid on the scene provide a means to aid the soldier in the decision making process. Helmet mounted displays that simultaneously allow the direct view of the natural scene with text and graphic overl ...

  9. Robust and Sequential Recognition of Emotional States Using Hidden Markov Models and Integrated Speech, Video, and Thermal Features

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: SB032038

    This proposal defines unique and promising solutions for robust and sequential emotional and stress state recognition in military operational environments. The solutions are non-invasive, multi-modality approaches, including speech, video, and thermal images. The feature sets are selected automatically based on the operational environments. For example, when the environment is too noisy, the syste ...

  10. In-situ, Real-Time Process Characterization and Control in Nanoimprint Lithography and In-Situ Template Cleaning

    SBC: Nanonex Corporation            Topic: SB041030

    The goal of the project is to (a) further develop an innovative in-situ real-time characterization tool for nanoimprint lithography (NIL) processes and (b) in-situ template cleaning using a laser beam. The characterization tool is based on real-time diffractive scatterometry and can measure many important imprint parameters (e.g. imprint depth, imprint speed, the resist deformations, etc) in-situ ...
