  1. Low-cost device relevant Indium Gallium Nitride (InGaN) or Alternatives

    SBC: 4WAVE, INC.            Topic: SB082053

    The project aims to grow device-quality InxGa1-xN, an important semiconductor because the band gap can be shifted widely by varying x, using a new form of plasma sputtering, Biased-Target Deposition (BTD). The major objectives are to grow x > 0.05 material on sapphire at 600-800°C (standard) and 300-500°C (beneficially reduced) temperatures, and to characterize material quality via X-ray diffra ...

  2. C-Strike

    SBC: TWO LIGHTS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB082061

    Close Air Support (CAS) is playing an increasing role in military operations. The emphasis on Special Operations in recent years has increased the combat range of small units, often sending squad-sized units hundreds of miles behind enemy lines. Small units rely on stealth and airpower. They remain covert, but when they are discovered, they call in airpower to keep from being outgunned. All too of ...

  3. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: TORC Robotics, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    Many modern approaches to autonomy use a layered planning technique where a conventional path planner plans a nominal desired path, and a reactive planner plans trajectories over a local region. In relatively structured environments with good localization, this layered approach has been proven to work well, as shown by TORC’s successful 3rd place entry in the 2007 DARPA Urban Challenge. The ov ...

  4. Personal Air Vehicle Lift Fan Design (PAV-LiFaD)

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB091014

    With the significant advancements in motor efficiency and energy storage technology, electric propulsion systems have become viable power plants and power supplements to aircraft. Offering high power-to-weight ratios, electric drive systems significantly increase the design capabilities for vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) capable platforms. Ducted fans offer the ability to develop an enclosed ...

  5. Robust Distributed GPS Apertures

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB091012

    Azure Summit Technology will develop algorithms and techniques for Vector Navigation (VNAV) in this Phase I effort. Using actual collected GPS signals from a degraded RF environment, we will establish feasibility of VNAV through modeling and simulation. We will also develop a plan for a real time demonstration of VNAV in Phase II, as well as to clearly define the product development and funding ...

  6. Video Analysis and Dynamic Event Recognition (VADER) Engine

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SB082023

    The proliferation of the battlefield with UAVs and stationary cameras has created a virtual mountain of video data. Some of that data gets analyzed thoroughly, but most does not. It is simply archived away. Buried within this mountain of video data is a virtual treasure trove of valuable intelligence that currently cannot be easily retrieved. New, advanced wide area sensors and the increasing ...

  7. Massively Scalable Themes, Entities and Relationships (MASTER)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SB082026

    Discovering the important evidence in the form of activities, actors and relationships in a sea of open source data requires the ability to extract and correlate seemingly unrelated pieces of data, distinguish that data from the noise of harmless civilian activity and find the hidden attributes and relationships that characterize the true threat. To meet these requirements, the DAC BOBCAT Team pr ...
