  1. Matched Filter Chaos Communications

    SBC: Scieval LLC            Topic: A11aT002

    The use of chaotic hybrid systems has been recently demonstrated in for potential noise-resilient matched-filter communications. A first demonstration at low (audio) frequencies using a combination of analog and digital components has been demonstrated. With this proposal, our objective is to devise a"chaos-on-a-chip"system that can exhibit similar features to those in while operating in the range ...

  2. Biomimetic Membranes for Direct Methanol Fuel Cells

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: A11aT013

    The proposed research effort is focused on developing a highly conducting, nanostructured membrane for use in high temperature direct methanol fuel cells (DMFC). Polymer nanofiber mats with high temperature stability and water retaining inorganic nanoparticles will be prepared through electrospinning process. The nanofiber mats will be compacted and the pores will be infiltrated using a hydrophobi ...

  3. Design Automation Software for DNA-Based Nano-Sensor Architectures


    Because of chemical behaviors of real DNA molecules, the nanotechnology envisioned by the Defense Department in this Solicitation will be possible only if design automation software creates nanostructures that exploit artificially expanded genetic information systems (AEGIS). AEGIS DNA molecules have more than the four nucleotides (GACT) found in natural DNA. Our software will accommodate nanoarc ...

  4. Wavelength-Stabilized, High-Brightness Diode Laser Pumps for High-Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: SB103005

    The proposed innovation is based on a combination of two new technologies developed at the Center for Laser Technology at the Fraunhofer Institute and OptiGrate Corp. and aims to integrate advanced packaging of single emitter laser diodes, spectral and angular narrowing of these diodes by volume Bragg gratings in external resonators, and spectral combining of laser beams by a stack of volume Bragg ...

  5. Novel Acoustic Materials for Passive Hearing Protection

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SB103006

    The goal of this effort is to develop a low cost, passive ear protection device to be worn as an earplug or headset that will allow the Soldier to maintain situational awareness but filter out harmful noise threats. Newly developed acoustic meta-materials may be leveraged to address this problem. Meta-materials are composite systems whose bulk properties are derived from the geometric structure ra ...

  6. High Speed Naval Surface Munition


    The Defense Advanced Research Program Agency (DARPA) is currently seeking a small semi-autonomous, very high speed maritime surface munition that is capable of speeds of 100 knots or greater in sea state 4 or above. The system must have the capability to track, differentiate and intercept a target such as a small high-speed watercraft , at an initial range of up to three miles at high speed while ...

  7. Vapor-Liquid pump for Mixed Phase Refrigerant


    Current refrigerant pumping technology lacks the ability to circulate a liquid-vapor mixture with substantial flow resistance, which impedes development and implementation of two-phase cooling technology. Common pump designs will hydro-lock and mechanically fail instantly or suffer performance loss and eventually fail due to cavitation or worn components. Mainstream"s solution is based on an exi ...

  8. Biometric-based Computer Authentication during Mission Oriented Protective Posture Scenarios

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: OSD10IA5

    Military Oriented Protective Posture (MOPP) gear consists of rubber boots, gloves, gas mask, hood and carbon-filter suit used to protect the warfighter from nuclear, biological, and chemical attacks. While necessary, MOPP gear is cumbersome and uncomfortable. Tasks requiring significant situational awareness or manual dexterity such as typing on a computer keyboard become extremely difficult due ...

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: OSD10L02

    Modus Operandi proposes the development of reusable technologies called Affinity. Affinity identifies relationships and associations among people, objects and locations that have automatically been extracted from large volumes of both structured and unstructured data. Our innovative approach combines a mathematical information indexing and retrieval algorithm, called Latent Semantic Indexing (LS ...

  10. Profile Feature Extractor (PFx) Sensor Component for Persistent ISR Applications

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: A10071

    Currently no source exists for detector pixels arranged in custom arrays suitable for use with the PFx sensor. Plasmonics Inc proposes to become a source for such detectors by designing a new fabrication process for custom microbolometer arrays using a novel vanadium oxide alloy. This new bolometer material has comparable temperature coefficient of resistance to commercially available products, bu ...
