  1. Transition Metal Oxide Optical Switch

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: A09079

    We propose to test a new sputtering method, Biased Target Deposition (BTD), for growth of polycrystalline VO2 thin films. The BTD method has been shown to be more stable and flexible for reactive deposition than previously used techniques, and we test whether VO2 can be driven into different microstructures, hence properties, by varying growth conditions. We focus on the optically-driven insulator ...

  2. Tunnel Detection using MASINT Techniques

    SBC: McQ Inc.            Topic: A09148

    McQ will build upon its extensive experience with MASINT unattended ground sensors and electronics systems to develop a portable sensor system that will detect, classify and provide location information for buried tunnels. We will first demonstrate the technical feasibility of using MASINT techniques to exploit both the signals associated with tunnel detection and the physics of propagation to det ...

  3. Innovative Real Time Probes for Plastic Bonded Exp

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A09026

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. proposes to develop an innovative real time probe for online monitoring of plastic bonded explosive manufacturing process. Key innovations of the proposed sensor probe include: a) the use of a white light interferometer (WLI) to form real time images of the particles for accurate particle size measurements, and b) the use of quartz crystal microbalance (QCM) base ...

  5. Advance Antenna and Processing Solutions for Multi-Functional Target Detection System

    SBC: ZIMMERMAN ASSOC., INC.            Topic: A08125

    Advances have been made in the radar detection of IED/EFPs. However, multiple targets are detected in a clutter rich environment. Current radar systems cannot discriminate a threat from a non-threat, therefore all detections must be treated as potential threats and either remediated or avoided. This proposal proposes a system for improved radar target detection, discrimination and target identific ...

  6. Adaptation of Biological Solutions to MAVs in Gusty Urban Environments

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: A08056

    Aurora Flight Sciences proposes a comprehensive set of sensing, estimation, and control techniques to enable urban flight in the face of gusts and other disturbances. Biological entities utilize a number of sensory mechanisms to insure stable flight with respect to their surroundings and reject disturbances. Some of these mechanisms are suitable for adaptation into engineering systems that are s ...

  7. Nano-Passivation of GaSb/InAs Strained Layer Superlattices Infrared Detector

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08103

    Mid-infrared (MWIR, wavelength ~10 micron) imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition, since human body radiation peaks in MWIR. The GaSb/InAs type-II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) MWIR detector has been under intensive investigation recently. While much progress has been made to enhance wavelength coverage, one of the few remaining issues has been its r ...

  8. Low Light Level Silicon-Germanium Nano-BiCMOS Infrared Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08100

    Low light level infrared imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition. The proposed broadband low-light-level nano-BiCMOS camera covers visible and near infrared bands from 400 nm to 1,550 nm wavelengths. With a proven nano-technology, the proposed nano-BiCMOS photo-detector solves this long-standing tradeoff between quantum efficiency and dark current by in- ...

  9. DESCRIPTIONS OF TESTS USED TO MEASURE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF VISION ARE SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE LITERATURE OF FIELDS SUCH AS MEDICINE, PHYSIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING, OPTICS AND OTHERS.

    SBC: DCS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTIONS OF TESTS USED TO MEASURE VARIOUS ASPECTS OF VISION ARE SCATTERED THROUGHOUT THE LITERATURE OF FIELDS SUCH AS MEDICINE, PHYSIOLOGY, PSYCHOLOGY, HUMAN FACTORS ENGINEERING, OPTICS AND OTHERS. WITH STEADY ADVANCES IN THE COMPLEXITY OF MILITARY SYSTEMS (NOTABLY AIRCRAFT), THE NEED FOR A READILY ACCESSIBLE AND THOROUGH SOURCE OF MATERIAL ON VISION TESTS BECOMES IMPERATIVE. DCS PROPOSES TO C ...
