  1. Surveying Earth's Gravity with Unmanned Aerial Vehicles

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: 912RN

    To assist with the National Geodetic Survey’s federal mandate to provide accurate positioning—including heights—to all federal non-military mapping activities in the USA, Aurora Flight Sciences proposes to integrate a gravimetry payload on a unmanned aerial system (UAS). Potential options include using either an unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV) or an optionally piloted aircraft (OPA). An OPA ...

  2. Dip and Read Nanosensor for Calcium Ion Measurements in Sea Water

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: 822R

    This topic requires the capability for enabling high sensitivity/high precision measurements of calcium concentrates in seawater. This proposal aims to demonstrate the feasibility of a novel high sensitive nanosensor that can be used to determine very low concentrations of calcium in seawater in the presence of a large background calcium concentration. The sensor approach uses the benefits of nano ...

  3. Remote Electronic Medical Devices using the Integrated Clinical Environment (REMDICE)

    SBC: DocBox Inc            Topic: SOCOM13003

    Generation of a single platform with multiple functional units requires a"fresh"approach. Battlefield CONOPS requires the immediate availability of multiple sensors and active devices. The sensors include: ultrasound, capnography, blood pressure measurement using non-invasive techniques, pulse oximetry, non-invasive hemoglobin measurement, electrocardiography and video laryngoscopy. Each of the ...

  4. Over the Horizon Underwater Communications

    SBC: Megawave Corporation            Topic: SOCOM13002

    In this proposal we describe our approach and anticipated results concerning the use of a novel and innovative method for providing Over-The-Horizon (OTH) L-band links between a submerged tracking device and an overhead satellite without the requirement for an on or above surface antenna. The encapsulation of an antenna in a dielectrically compensating tethered cocoon that includes a sensor and m ...

  5. A Novel Internet-based Radar Digital Receiver and Processor (iRAP) System

    SBC: REMOTE SENSING SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 835

    Dozens of popular radar systems are installed on all sizes of aircraft, however the fundamental capabilities of these radars can be defined using only a few parameters such as the pulse width, pulse rate and scan rate. Each radar has its unique interface to operator controls and displays but the input controls and outputs are fundamentally the same. This proposed research effort seeks to utilize ...

  6. Solid-state Broadly-tunable Milliwatt CW THz Source on Intra-cavity Frequency Conversion

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal provides a breakthrough solution to realize a compact broadly-tunable THz local-oscillator, whose tuning range covers 0.8-1.2 THz with flat output power in excess of 200 uW. The innovation is based on high efficiency intra-cavity difference frequency generation. A dual cavity laser is designed to generate two separate frequency lasers, which share an EO crystal inside the cavity for ...

  7. Reconfigurable Scanning Millimeter-wave Polarimetric Radar for Airborne Observation of Clouds

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 821

    This Phase I SBIR project describes our plan to develop a compact scanning polarimetric cloud radar for observations of sea spray from a variety of airborne platforms. Our effort will focus on the design of a compact, lightweight W-band polarimetric scanning radar system that will be suitable to operate onboard the NOAA P3 or NOAA/NASA Altair UAV aircraft. Phase I design activities will include ...

  8. Low-Cost Integrated Multi-Channel Microwave Radiometer Receivers for Hurricane Surface Wind Structure Measurement

    SBC: Prosensing, Inc.            Topic: 837

    This proposal describes the development of low-cost, microwave integrated circuit receivers for a synthetic aperture Hurricane Imaging Radiometer (HIRad). The HIRad system, designed to generate high resolution ocean surface wind speed data in a push-broom imaging mode, will provide a variety of benefits, including improved hurricane model initialization and detection of fine-scale storm structure ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
