  1. Tunable Stiffness Thorax/Mechanism for Flapping Wing MAV

    SBC: NOVA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: A12017

    This proposed study intends to develop a model and prototype of a flapping winged vehicle through the incorporation of elastic components. This will allow the manufacture of such vehicles with greatly enhanced flight duration and agility. Work will include the design, prototyping, and testing of micro air vehicle wing flapping mechanisms with tunable elastic components for increasing throughput po ...

  2. Advanced Order Linearizer for Satellite Communications

    SBC: LINEARIZER TECHNOLOGY INC            Topic: A12041

    Linearizer Technology Inc. produces analog predistortion linearizers. Integrated with a power amplifier (PA) and used for SATCOM applications they approach the performance of an ideal amplifier. Limitations of LTIs linearizers are the need for meticulous tuning to achieve the desired characteristics over frequency, and the need for adjustment to match a PAs specific characteristics. LTI has d ...

  3. Novel Standoff Detection of Material Damage Precursors for Structural Health Monitoring and Prediction

    SBC: PNTS INCORPORATED            Topic: A13016

    Because of the overwhelming migration to composites, particularly exotic thermoset materials from the bismaleimide (BMI) family, the PNTS team is focusing its work on this topic on composite structures. The team's high level approach will be to demonstrate an innovative and practical design using dielectric spectroscopy at millimeter wave through terahertz frequencies that will provide compos ...

  4. Remote Deployment of Explosive Detection Material

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: A12007

    MSI successfully demonstrated modification of its existing extended range 40mm non-lethal munition to carry and deploy a molecularly imprinted polymer (MIP) payload intended to detect and confirm explosives at 100m stand-off. Based on analysis and air-gun testing, as well as legacy performance of MSIs munition, key characteristics of the explosive detection munition include over 25 square inch co ...

  5. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased array techniques. Herein, we present a concept for creat ...

  6. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  7. Investigation of CytoSorb cytokine and myoglobin removal in the treatment of trauma and burn injury

    SBC: CytoSorbents Medical Inc.            Topic: A11105

    Trauma and burn injuries are leading causes of military casualties and need more effective treatments. They are frequently associated with a severe systemic inflammatory response syndrome, triggered by tissue damage, cytokine and inflammatory mediator release, ischemia-reperfusion injury, and others, as well as complications such as hemorrhage and rhabdomyolysis that can cause multiple organ dysfu ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Low-Cost CFD-Based Analysis for Surface Mesh Interrogation and Refinement

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: A13004

    Accurate flow calculation is crucial to the development and support of air platforms, and CFD has been successful at predicting aerodynamic performance for a variety of flows. The accuracy of CFD is governed by the quality of the surface mesh, and much work has been undertaken to automatically generate surface grids from CAD. Unfortunately, quality is quantified in terms of conformance to the surf ...

  10. BROAD RANGE RADIATION DETECTOR BASED ON SPECTRUM SHIFTS OF OPTO-MECHANICAL MICROCAVITY

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: A123108

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed at the development of the ultra-sensitive detector for the far infrared (FIR) and terahertz (THz) bands of electromagnetic radiation. The device is inherently optical, operates at room temperature and of submillimeter size. The proposed technology is based on coupling the radiation to be measured to the mechanical degree of freedom of an optical microcavity and ...
