  1. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  2. Modeling, Design and Development of Micrometer Wave Energy Harvester Using Rectenna Arrays

    SBC: CoolCAD Electronics            Topic: SB092010

    We propose to directly harvest energy from infrared (3-14microns) radiation sources using micro-antennas coupled to rectifying diodes and storage capacitors. The antenna receives infrared electromagnetic radiation and the rectifier converts it to direct current which is then stored. Large numbers of these rectennas connected in a conformal, light-weight array should be able to harvest energy suffi ...

  3. A Multimodel Imaging Device for Diagnosis of Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: Imperium, Inc.            Topic: SB092003

    Traumatic brain injury has been designated the “signature wound” of the Iraq war due to its prevalence. Over 43,000 cases of combat related TBI have been documented from 2003 through 2007. TBI is divided into two categories: primary and secondary. Primary injury in most cases is obvious. Secondary or closed brain injury however may exhibit no external markers and subtle symptoms. Current di ...

  4. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    This project describes research that will lead to the commercialization of the Tool Dashboard, a new technique for pre-process milling parameter selection. In this approach, dynamic models of the cutting tool and holder will be analytically coupled to spindle-machine measurements to predict the tool point dynamics. Given this information, stability lobe diagrams, which display stable and unstable ...

  5. Dynamic Error Measurement for Large Machine Tools

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    Existing machine tool metrology methods measure the quasistatic errors of a machine tool and, thus, evaluate its static positioning accuracy. Yet machine tools are dynamic, they do not stop and pause in an effort to reach a programmed position. Additionally, current techniques do not identify all of the errors, many of which significantly impact the volumetric accuracy of the machine. Almost immed ...

  6. Inexpensive, Portable Sensors for Chemical-Biological Agent Detection

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: SB093013

    In modern battlespace, deployment of chemical and biological agents by our adversaries is a threat that needs to be addressed. These agents are cheap to manufacture and easily available. Their effects can be devastating to our troops. Detecting chemical and biological agents often require bulky equipment in a laboratory. Identifying the agents could take many minutes in such facilities. A more eff ...

  7. Visually Guided Robotic Hand / Eye Coordination

    SBC: Vecna Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB092005

    The term “robot,” coined by Karel Capek in the play R.U.R., implies “compulsory labor,” yet most mobile robots in existence today are only capable of the lightest of labor. Of course, a robot is just a pile of parts without the advanced perception, planning, and control systems needed to make it perform useful work reliably in an unstructured environment. When done correctly, however, it w ...

  8. MobileTran: A Handheld Sign Translation Apps for Warfighters

    SBC: LIMAGING LLC            Topic: SB102002

    When the United States military commits to operations in foreign territories, it is important for soldiers to have the ability to understand textual information they encounter accurately and in a timely manner. For this SBIR Limaging proposes to develop a document and sign translation system that can be operated by a novice user to obtain and interpret documents and signs in foreign languages, ...

  9. The Sibyl App: Tasking an Imaging Satellite from a Handheld Device

    SBC: Orbit Logic Incorporated            Topic: SB102002

    For this Phase I effort, Orbit Logic Incorporated will design, develop, and test a mobile handheld application (app) that can task an imaging satellite. Orbit Logic will utilize portions of its operationally proven, high fidelity Collection Planning System (CPS) software during this Phase I effort. The Satellite Tasking app will allow users to define an area of interest (AOI) and submit a reques ...

  10. Development Of Standoff Laser-Induced Thermal (Infrared) Emission (LITE) System For Chemical and Biological Materials

    SBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA            Topic: A09AT022

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) has shown great promise for applications in chemical, biological and explosive (CBE) sensing [1-12]. Nearly all previous LIBS experiments were limited to measurements in the UV-VIS and NIR. However, molecules exhibit spectroscopic signatures in the MIR to FIR wavelength region from vibrational and rotational transitions. Therefore, an extension of LIBS t ...
