  1. 3-Dimensional Isotropic Metamaterials Lens(1001-124)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    Triton Systems’ team proposes to identify and develop a metamaterials-based lenses system capable of imaging beyond the diffraction limit in the visible spectrum. The use of negative index of refraction to resolve features beyond the diffraction index limit has been demonstrated for wavelengths outside of the visible. Triton’s team will expand the theory and experimentally demonstrate metama ...

  2. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  3. A Computational Chemistry Approach to Signature Mechanisms of High Altitude Maneuvering Missiles

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A17124

    Theater missile threats often fly through and maneuver at high altitudes, where their signature can substantially change. New chemical signature mechanisms and non-equilibrium conditions will become important. The new mechanisms change the appearance of threat signatures and must be taken into account when developing detection, track, and guidance sensors and algorithms. Spectral Sciences Inc. (SS ...

  4. A Hybrid System for AI Enhanced Information Processing and Situation Assessment

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a hybrid system incorporating expert systems, Bayesian belief networks, and case-based reasoning to support battlefield multisensor data fusion for situation assessment (SA). Expert systems will provide a framework for the system and give it the capacity to emulate the expert human reasoning heuristics, coordinate overall SA functions, and support numerical and symbolic proce ...

  5. A Low-Toxicity, Non-Pyrotechnic, High Yield Visible Obscurant

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A17059

    There is a need to replace toxic obscurant smokes with non-toxic alternatives, without sacrificing the efficacy of the obscurant. Nano Terra proposes to formulate non-toxic, hygroscopic materials into smoke formulations that will produce smoke having high mass extinction coefficients. These formulations will produce aerosols with well-defined yield factors, leading to highly efficient smoke genera ...

  6. A multicomponent indicator ticket for presumptive field identification of hazardous materials

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: A17063

    The objective of this program is to demonstrate a multicomponent ticket that affords a human-readable indicator response to chemical agents, protein-content, and explosive/energetic materials for presumptive field identification. The current product, M8 paper, lacks selectivity and only works for the identification of three classes of chemical threat agents. Multiple products are required to detec ...

  7. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  8. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  9. A Patterns Based Model for Software Design Rationale Capture

    SBC: Tri-state Research Corp            Topic: N/A

    Capturing the rationale behind decision making in design plays an important role to explain a design, redesign and/or reuse an existing design. Existing design rationale models suffer from the lack of integrating rationale with the design process. The integration is crucial for the domain of software design due to its complexity. A model for design rationale capture and its related knowledge ba ...

  10. A Physics-based Fusion Approach for Color Night Vision

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A07071

    Common night vision systems use single-band sensors that are sensitive to either emitted or reflected infrared (IR) radiation, and thus provide a monochromatic image of the inspected scene. Adding color can increase depth, contrast and perception, improving soldiers' reaction time and reducing fatigue. However, current color night vision systems are quite limited in performance and range of appli ...
