  1. Monolithic SiGe SWIR Imaging Cameras

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A07119

    In this project, Agiltron and RTI International propose to demonstrate low-cost, low-power, man-portable megapixel SiGe SWIR imaging cameras as a vehicle to replace more costly InGaAs imaging cameras. In Phase I, superlattices of Ge quantum dots or strained SiGe layers will be investigated for their detection performance in the SWIR band. In Phase II, leveraging the colossal investments made in th ...

  2. Compact and Highly Sensitive MEMS Enhanced Fiber Gas Spectrometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A07135

    Leveraging on our extensive production experience on MEMS technology and fiber optic components, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of gas spectrometer with built-in MEMS enhanced mid-IR tunable laser and gas filled hollow fiber as gas cell, targeted for TIC and CWA detection. Our proposed MEMS enhanced QCL based external cavity tuning laser has high output power (tens of mW) and very large ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Rapid Generation of High-affinity Aptamers for Quantification of Protein Biomarkers

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A07147

    The generation of genomic and proteomic data with the goal of biomarker discovery for disease diagnostics or prognosis is a powerful approach. However, biomarkers identified from a typically small sample size must be validated on a large population. A limiting factor is the availability of high-quality reagents for the quantification of the biomarkers in a complex medium such as serum. The assa ...

  5. MEMS Enhanced Laser Spectrometer for Ultra-sensitive Toxic Chemical Detection

    SBC: Block Mems, LLC            Topic: A07135

    Block MEMS, LLC proposes the development of an ultra high sensitivity MEMS enhanced, tunable diode laser spectrometer. With the aid of micro-electromechanical (MEMS) components, this spectrometer should achieve a size of

  6. Night Vision Enhancement Technology for Paratrooper Eye Protection Goggles


    This SBIR project aims at developing a high sensitivity night vision viewer with broadband (near IR (NIR), mid-wave IR (MWIR), and long wave IR (LWIR)) coverage. Utilizing a specific transparent functional material developed at Boston Applied Technologies Incorporated (BATi) that has excellent pyroelectric effect, over strong absorption at NIR, MWIR and LWIR wavebands, perfect transmittance in cer ...

  7. Culturally Aware Agents for Training Environments (CAATE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD06CR4

    During the last decade, the U.S. Army has conducted a wide range of missions within the context of very different cultures. These missions often require Soldiers to interact and communicate personally and effectively with people whose cultures, languages, lifestyle, and beliefs are very different from those found in the U.S. It has become increasingly clear that strategy, operational plans, and im ...

  8. Hierarchical Analysis, Reasoning, and Visualization of Events in Space and Time (HARVEST)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A07131

    The Army's Distributed Common Ground Systems (DCGS-A) promises to unite hundreds of different data sources into a common operational database. What is needed is a means of analyzing many complex, overlapping data sources, particularly those with spatial and temporal elements. Here, we propose Hierarchical Analysis, Reasoning, and Visualization of Events in Space and Time (HARVEST) to carry out spa ...

  9. A Tool for Assessing and Conveying Testimony Veracity (TACT-V)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A07116

    HUMINT-specialized technologies (e.g., CI/HUMINT Information Management System (CHIMS), CI/HUMINT Automated Tool Set (CHATS)) provide soldiers with tools that help them capture, disseminate and reason about the information they collect. While these tools can help identify inconsistencies in source testimony, this activity still requires time and the expertise of the HUMINT collector to effectively ...

  10. Modeling User-Defined Operating Pictures (UDOPs) within Simulation Environments (MUSE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A07158

    The Network-Centric Warfare paradigm will provide Ground Soldiers in the U.S. Army with large amounts of information needed to maintain Situational Awareness and to perform successfully in the field. Current information interfaces lack a targeted operational focus and provide a broad superset of data, resulting in Ground Soldiers becoming overloaded by extraneous or non-critical information. To ad ...
