  1. Network Application of Piezo-Crystals

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance fiberoptic switches are in critical demand for use in the ever-growing communication networks and modern defense systems. Fiberoptic switch is the key component to enable much simplified and higher performance Active Optical Networks,where optical signals/channels are dynamically switched, routed, reconfigured, multiplexed, protected and restored all in the optical layer, elimina ...

  2. A Comparison of Methods to Detect and Eliminate Secondary Target Returns from Adaptive Radar Training Data

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For SAR, spatial and temporal adaptive processing (STAP) uses samples local to the cell being processed to estimate local clutter and noise statistics. If these samples are corrupted by returns from other unknown targets, the statistics are invalid and theperformance of the algorithms can be degraded. We propose to conduct a range of experiments to evaluate signal detection, statistical, multi-loo ...

  3. Optical Correlator Based on Biomolecular Materials

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    Optical correlators are dedicated optical computers capable of determining the degree of similarity between features contained in a two-dimensional scene. This research designs, fabricates, and tests optical films based on biomolecular materials. Theutility and enhanced capability of these films is studied in an optical correlator for real time optical identity verification via fingerprints or o ...

  5. Fracture-Initiated Hybrid Adhesives for Self-Repairing Composites

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    Novel fracture-initiated adhesive materials are proposed for fabricating thermally stable, polymer matrix composites with the ability to repair themselves after sustaining structural damage. The proposed research explores the feasibility of modifyingconventional thermoset resins with microencapsulated hybrid monomers that upon matrix fracture, spread to the damaged area and stabilize the structur ...

  6. Self-Cleaning Dynamic Adhesive Materials

    SBC: Cape Cod Research            Topic: N/A

    The proposed research mimics the adhesive strategy of geckos to produce a novel, dry, self-cleaning dynamically modulated adhesive. A soft mat of artificial hairs allows the adhesive force of the sticky spatulae to be modulated. This facilitates easyengagement and disengagement with the surface, as well as, promoting self-cleaning.The proposed effort would lead to a novel self-cleaning dry adhes ...

  7. Low Cost, Lightweight, High Performance Transparent Armor

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For military aircraft and land vehicles, there is a need for lightweight transparent armor that will provide a high level of ballistic protection at moderate cost. Hardfaced armor provides protection against (pointed) projectiles at very low arealdensities relative to other armor configurations. The current transparent hardface materials are either unaffordably expensive (sapphire, ALON), or low ...

  8. Composite Pilothouse for the Mark V Special Operations Craft

    SBC: FOSTER-MILLER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    MK V SOC service failures have occurred where the windshield and entire pilothouse assembly have collapsed on wave impact. Such failures have even occurred at moderate speeds in fairly benign seas. The modular pilothouse can also suffer from structuraldegradation due to the disassembly operations required for C-5 transport.A composite pilothouse, with fully integrated windshields panels and modula ...

  9. Clandestine Marker System

    SBC: Idolon Technologies            Topic: N/A

    The requirement for an inexpensive portable tagging system arises from the need totag and track U.S. military assets. The object of the Phase 1 is to determine thefeasibility of a clandestine barcode-like device, which has low energy/power requirements.This device will have a simple user interface and rugged construction. It is afurther objective to demonstrate the feasibiilty of a

  10. Robot Beacon Module for Minimum-Resource

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: N/A

    iRobot Corp. has already developed an infrared communication, robot location, andobstacle detection system called ISIS and incorporated it into a swarm of robots.ISIS provides two degrees of angular resolution, a communication range of up toeight meters, and a 125 kbits/sec data rate. It has a total cost of approximately$150, and measures 3.5
