  1. Megapixel Uncooled Photomechanical LWIR Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Agiltron has developed a breakthrough modular IR imaging technology that employs a photomechanical effect, in which an array of micro-machined sensor pixels converts IR radiation into visible light signals that can be optically detected by commercial off-the-shelf CMOS or CCD visible-light imagers. With commercial CMOS imagers achieving multi-megapixel resolution, the resolution of the modular Agi ...

  2. Optical Localization Techniques for Micro-Sensor Network Devices


    Wireless Sensor Networks (WSN) has been envisioned to revolutionize the way humans perceive and interact with the surrounding environment. The sensor nodes form a network and collaborate (to compensate for the extremely scarce resources available to each of them: computational power, memory size, communication capabilities) to accomplish the mission. Through collaboration, redundancy and fault tol ...

  3. A Linked, Integrated Visualization System for IO (LIVIO)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB072033

    Numerous advances have been made to provide the Commander with visualizations of the physical spatio-temporal battlespace, but efforts to visualize Information Operations (IO) concepts are lacking. While physical, kinetic operations map naturally to particular visual elements (e.g., maps, symbols, timelines), the factors (and the relationships among factors) considered in IO do not have such stra ...

  4. Modular Affective Reasoning-based Versatile Introspective Architecture (MARVIN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB072009

    Robotic vehicles, unmanned systems, and critical command and control networks rely on systems that need to operate effectively in complex, dynamic, and adversarial environments. Currently fielded systems are not up to par—they can be immobilized by simple component failures. Future operations will not tolerate such brittleness, especially given the interconnectivity demanded by future concepts o ...

  5. Construction and Validation Environment for Social Simulations (CAVES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB072013

    U.S. political and military decision makers need to make decisions about extremely large, complex socio-political systems. Our objective is to enable these decision makers to evaluate and plan courses of action (COAs) with the aid of computer-based simulations that predict the possible effects (including second and third-order effects) of COAs being considered. We propose to develop a suite of too ...

  6. Heat Stable Nanoparticle Amplified Immunoassays

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB072006

    The theater of operation for DoD immunoassays typically requires them to be sensitive, stable at temperatures up to 35 oC for up to two years, and be low power or power-free. Although enzyme-based assays are very sensitive, enzymes are usually unstable under such storage conditions. We propose a new photocatalytic nanoparticle-based immunoassay method that provides the amplification associated wit ...

  7. Conformal, Ultra-Light Interlaced Active Electronically Steerable Antenna (UL-AESA) for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV) Radar and COMINT(2007026)

    SBC: Hittite Microwave Corporation            Topic: SB072021

    Hittite proposes to develop a small, light-weight, interlaced AESA to provide ground surveillance radar and COMINT capability from a small UAV. The development will focus initially on the Ka-band radar antenna. This thin (e.g., 85 mil), 256-element (8 x 32) 35 GHz radar array will conform to and be structurally integrated with a 1.35” x 5.4” x 0.06” section of the bottom of the fuselage. ...

  8. High Resolution Long Wave Infrared Focal Plane Array Development

    SBC: NANTERO, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    Infrared (IR) detection is an integral part of the Global War on terrorism. Vandium Oxide based micro-bolometers are the current state of the art in uncooled IRFPA. The need for higher resolution 1280X960 arrays that operate at low power for man-portable applications include 24 hour surveillance and targeting . Carbon Nanotube (CNT) based IR detectors could fill this need. CNTs have unique electri ...

  9. Motion Pattern Anomaly Detection System (MPADS)

    SBC: Parietal Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB072020

    The basic goal of this research is to improve the capability to detect, locate, and characterize emerging abnormal activities in cluttered environments based on motion pattern analysis. Parietal Systems, Inc. (PSI) proposes to do this by developing novel closed-loop pattern detection and sensor management algorithms to detect significant motion anomalies in normal background activity and to manage ...

  10. High Power 3D Batteries for Autonomous Sensor Networks

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: MDA03090

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) has successfully demonstrated the fabrication and operation of a novel rechargeable lithium ion battery technology well suited for application in microscale devices requiring high power and energy. The performance of proven, safe lithium ion battery materials was enhanced through assembly in a three dimensional (3D) electrode architecture. Current status 3D batteries a ...
