  3. High Speed Light Weight Omnidirectional Vehicle with Enhanced Manipulator Control

    SBC: AUTONOMOUS SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: A06216

    There is an urgent need for a man-transportable EOD robot which can quickly traverse the distance between its operator and the suspected UXO, perform manipulation tasks requiring high dexterity, and then quickly return. This proposal describes an innovative solution to this need called ‘Taz’. Taz will weigh 40 kg, be capable of 40 kph for up to 8 hours, and will offer high dexterity manipulati ...

  4. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  7. HEAT EXCHANGE MATRIX

    SBC: Elanco Inc.            Topic: N/A

    HEAT EXCHANGE MATRIX THE FUNCTION OF A HEAT EXCHANGER IS DEPENDENT UPON THE AREA OF EXPOSURE TO THE FLUIDS IN PROCESS. FINS ARE COMMONLY USED TO INCREASE EXTERNAL SURFACE AREAS. TO EXTEND THE INNER SURFACE OF A TUBE OR VESSEL IS MORE DIFFICULT AND THERE IS CURRENTLY NO COST EFFECTIVE METHOD TO DO SO. THIS REDEARCH IS TO DEVELOP THE USE OF A MATRIX COMPOSED OF SMALL, HOLLOW, METAL CYLINDERS, BRAZED ...

  8. Electromagnetic-Based Computer Aided Design (CAD) for Wavelength Scale Optics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is the continued integration of systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. While this has led to personal computers that offer more functionality and faster computational speeds, ithas also spurred the development of hybrid optoelectronic systems on a chip (SOCs). Currently, such SOCs are receiving significant interest fro ...

  9. W-band Microwave Amplifier Power Module

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: AF063001

    InnoSys proposes the advanced development of microwave power modules (MPMs) that combine monolithic microwave integrated circuit (MMIC) driver amplifiers with miniature traveling wave tube (TWT) amplifiers. This provides high power density at low cost and a small size and weight. When used as a driver amplifier in the MPM, the V/W band MMIC provides sufficient power and gain to drive the special ...

  10. Noise and Artifact Reduction in Computed Tomography (CT) Images

    SBC: JDLL, INC.            Topic: AF05203

    Current high-energy computed tomography (CT) techniques for nondestructive testing (NDT) of solid rocket motors (SRM) and other large industrial objects often produce inferior imagery due to artifacts, impairing detection, identification, and measurement of anomalies. Phase I results verified that these artifacts arise from failure of assumptions implicit in the filtered backprojection algorithm. ...
