  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. Nano-BiCMOS Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08008

    Night vision capability is one of the most important battlefield advantages of the U.S. military, especially in today’s asymmetric warfare. The Gen III night vision goggles in service today is based on the vacuum tube technology with a semiconductor photo cathode, resulting in limitations on view angle, size, manufacturing cost and device operating lifetime. The requirement of special training i ...

  3. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...

  4. Web-Scale Search-based Data Extraction and Integration: Geospatial Database Generation Agents-- Phase II

    SBC: CAZOODLE, INC.            Topic: A07124

    This proposal addresses topic A07-124 ``Geospatial Database Generation Agents'' aiming at developing the technology to populate the geometry and attribution of geospatial databases with information mined from open source text, tables, and non-spatial databases on the Web. As our solution, we propose to build the GeoEngine, a ``vertical-search'' system for finding and ranking information about geos ...

  5. Passivation Innovations for Large Format Reduced Pixel pitch strained layer superlattice Focal Plane Array Imagers Operating in the Long Wavelength In

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A08103

    A novel surface passivation technique is proposed for InAs/GaInSb-based strained layer superlattice focal plane arrays with a pitch of 15 µm or less. Buffered oxide and sulfur-based surface treatments prior to dielectric deposition are proposed as the most suitable and chemically stable surface treatments. Both processes result in the removal of elemental oxides, while the latter additionally pro ...

  6. Advanced High Operating Temperature Mid-Wave Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05052

    The goal of this project is to reduce the cooling requirements of MWIR HgCdTe infrared photon detectors and improve detector performance at present-day cryogenic operating temperatures. During Phase I, we designed innovative Pn-N detectors and established the feasibility of growing the required HgCdTe-based structures by molecular beam epitaxy. Using this approach in a collaborative effort with th ...

  7. Experimental and Computational Program for Slow and Fast Cookoff for Insensitive Munitions Testing

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A08027

    We propose a joint experimental and computational program to predict the behavior of heterogeneous energetic materials, specifically the properties and dynamics of their initiation, during slow and fast cookoff for insensitive munitions testing. The experimental effort will involve gram-scale fast and slow cookoff experiments in fully instrumented test cells, allowing for spatial and temporal reso ...

  8. Compact quantitative near infrared device for combat casualty care

    SBC: I.S.S (USA), Inc.            Topic: A08119

    The early recognition of severe hemorrhage is a key factor towards reducing mortality and morbidity from battlefield insults. Although near-infrared (NIR) instruments have shown promise in recognizing hemorrhage, specific confounding factors must be solved to be reliable in early hemorrhage. Our hypothesis is that these confounding factors can be eliminated by proper light-tissue interaction mod ...

  9. Locking Mechanism for Rotating Seats

    SBC: Kustom Seating Unlimited Inc. (KSU)            Topic: 07FR1

    Research is proposed to develop a locking mechanism for intercity (Amtrak) rotating seats that can be retro-fit to existing seats. Current intercity rail seats, according to the National Transportation Safety Board (NTSB), present a safety hazard to the riding public. Post accident investigations show that passenger rail seats were found to have been uncontrollably rotated even though current se ...

  10. Next Generation Urban Encroachment Model

    SBC: LEAMGROUP, INC.            Topic: A07129

    Our tool will combine a new urban growth model with a web-based content management system to create an environment where planners can leverage an urban growth model to review proposed infrastructure changes, new public policies, and other forms of interventions that may effective urban development patterns. Results of the urban growth model can be used to assess costs associated with new urban de ...
