  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 ...

  3. Acoustic, Thermal and Fire Insulation System

    SBC: TECH 21, LLC            Topic: N04221

    To provide low-cost, light-weight, cost-effective insulation system that combines an improved acoustic performance in excess of 40-60 dB with the required thermal, smoke, toxicity and fire barrier performance using mature coating technologies. Our team of acoustic and thermal experts will demonstrate in Phase II that our coating system will exceed the standard acoustic properties of transmission ...

  4. Active Conceptual Modeling Technology Supporting Joint C4ISR

    SBC: CHEN & ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N08101

    This project proposes to study the core concepts of Active Conceptual modeling (A-CM) with applications to military and commercial systems. We plan to explore the feasibility of extending the mathematical framework for Entity-Relationship (ER)-based active conceptual modeling developed by Dr. Peter Chen to represent scenario snapshots that include time, space, uncertainty, and perspective dimensio ...

  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. Air Flow Noise Reduction Techniques

    SBC: International Mezzo Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N07163

    The Expeditionary Fighting Vehicle (EFV) currently is extremely noisy. The goal of the proposal is to reduce noise produced by the cooling system for the engine, which consists of fans,heat exchangers, and ducting to the outside. Mezzo is developing mirco tube heat exchangers that provide a much improved ratio of heat transfer/pressure drop compared to conventional heat exchangers (i. e. plate-fi ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. AUTOMATIC DETECTION AND TRACKING OF ACOUSTIC SIGNALS OF LOW SIGNAL-TO-NOISE RATIO (SNR) USING INNOVATIVE BEAMFORMING AND THREE-DIMENSIONAL TRACKING

    SBC: NEPTUNE SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conventional Beamforming (CBF) provides optimum signal detection under ideal ocean conditions (single plane-wave in isotropic, spatially incoherent noise). These conditions never exist in real ocean environments. In order to improve on CBF's performance, Neptune Sciences, Inc. (NSI) has developed and Inverse Beamforming (IBF) method which consists of four algorithms: 1) the Fourier Integral Method ...

  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. Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) Structures for Vanes and Exhaust Nozzle Components

    SBC: EVISIVE LLC            Topic: AF071105

    The objective of this project is to optimize the design of a microwave interference scanning system and application procedure for use in the Ceramic Matrix Composite (CMC) manufacturing process. Quick, efficient in-process measurement of part porosity will be an integral part of pyrolysis cycle optimization. The feasibility of this application of the novel Evisive Scan microwave interference sca ...
