  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. 40mm Low/Medium Velocity Air Bursting Munitions System (2007050)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: N07162

    Most small/medium caliber munitions operate as point-detonation weapons without an air-burst capability which limits their effectiveness against hidden targets, scattered targets, and foot soldiers. The effectiveness of those weapons could be improved significantly by adding an air-burst capability to those munitions. A more effective approach is an active proximity sensor built into the projecti ...

  5. A framework for intelligent Fusion Of Real-Time Measures Across Live-Virtual-Constructive Environments (FORMAL)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF081014

    While billions of dollars have been spent over the past several years on the development of training systems, testing infrastructures, and Live-Virtual-Constructive (LVC) interoperability, there is still no common approach to objective human performance measurement. The purpose, after all, of a Distributed Mission Operations environment is to deliver comprehensive training exercises to the warfigh ...

  6. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: AF08T001

    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  7. A Monolithically Integrated Multi-spectral Polarimetric Photodetector and focal plane array

    SBC: APPLIED NANOFEMTO TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF073083

    Polarization sensitive multi-spectral photodetectors are of great importance in target detection, characterization and discrimination. Most current existing multi-spectral sensing systems employ dispersive optics (gratings or prisms), or external polarizer technologies to obtain spectral and polarimetric characteristics of targets. These systems are usually heavy, bulky, having arrow incident angl ...

  8. A New Approach for Distributed Multidimensional Analysis of Battlespace Weather using Dwarf Technology

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF073017

    We propose to leverage our team’s critical expertise in weather data acquisition for weather effects modeling and innovative multidimensional database implementation to design a feasible proof-of-concept prototype that will demonstrate a revolutionary concept to improve incorporating weather effects within the air battle management process. Our design will include actual weather data and weathe ...

  9. 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 ...

  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 ...
