  1. 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 ...

  2. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  3. A Process to Produce High-Purity Encapsulated Particulates in Large Quantities

    SBC: FEDERAL TECHNOLOGY GROUP, INC.            Topic: A06083

    In Phase I of this project, FTG researchers showed that complete and uniform coatings of metal-coated particulates provide a mechanism for improving particle distribution, enhancing mechanical properties of fabricated components, and significantly improving the performance of reactive materials. This permits the creation of fully dense and high-quality MMCs for the production of bulk materials/coa ...

  4. ABL (Airborne Laser) Detection Sensor Improvements

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: MDA06054

    To provide the Airborne Laser (ABL) precision ranging and 3-D track refinement capability for the next generation active ranging system (NGARS), Voxtel will develop an avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver. Unlike the original ARS, which uses a 10.6 µm CO2 laser, Voxtel’s InGaAs-based ARS receiver is designed for high-speed photon counting between 1.0 – 1.6 µm. Operation in the short-wave infr ...

  5. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  6. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  7. Automated Maximum Density Analysis Tool for Spot Factor Generation

    SBC: OPTIMATION            Topic: N08125

    The development and introduction of new aircraft for the Fleet, or the deployment of existing aircraft on a new carrier, requires knowledge of the deck area, or “spot factor,” that characterizes the particular aircraft type. Currently, aircraft spot factors are obtained by iterative, manual methods that are very time consuming. NAVAIR is seeking the creation of a software tool to automatical ...

  8. Binary Multi-Taggant System for Unique Target ID

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N06T027

    To enable warfighters the ability to track entities buried in urban clutter, a series of environmentally-friendly, covert microtaggants composed of nanocrystals functionalized with luminophores with well-defined visible (VIS), near-infrared (NIR) and/or shortwavelength-infrared (SWIR) emission spectra will be further developed. The microtaggant’s quantum-confined nanocrystals are sensitive to on ...

  9. Biologically Inspired Reconfigurable Computer for High-speed Object Avoidance in Small UAVs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N08079

    For this project, we plan to collaborate with researchers in the neuroscience department at the University of Delaware to develop an FPGA-based embedded computer, inspired in the brains small vertebrates (fish). The mechanisms of object detection and avoidance in fish have been extensively studied by our Delaware collaborators. The midbrain optic tectum is a biological multimodal navigation cont ...

  10. Bioluminescence Risk Detection Aid

    SBC: Western Environmental Tech. Laboratories            Topic: N08193

    The objective of the proposed work is to develop a detailed description and methodology for an intuitive, real-time bioluminescence risk detection aid (BRDA) for underwater vehicle navigation and mission planning. The purpose of the BRDA is to provide real-time information as to the probability of above water visual detection of platform-induced (e.g. an Autonomous Underwater Vehicle, SEAL Delive ...
