  1. Shock Resistant MEMS Optical Matrix Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF071243

    Future military satellite fiber optic systems require a matrix optical switch for reconfigurability. But to date, no MEMS based switch has been able to withstand the harsh shock and vibration environment of space. Agiltron, Inc., an experienced manufacturer of aerospace qualified optical switches, proposes to realize a new MEMS-based fiber-optic matrix switch capable of vastly improved performance ...

  2. Upconverting Films

    SBC: BOSTON APPLIED TECHNOLOGIES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB072034

    Recent advances in the single wavelength excitation to induce upconversion emission in transparent colloids of Lanthanide-doped NaYF4 nanocrystals provide the opportunity for significant performance in biological tagging applications. For many military missions, a cost-effective, ultra-compact, passively infrared detection is also required to take advantage of the weak fluorescence. Upconversion ...

  3. Evaluation of a Conceptual High Altitude Valveless Internal Combustion Engine Fueled by Green Monopropellant

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB072045

    Busek Co. Inc. proposes to conduct critical studies and experiments to establish the feasibility of a novel High ALtitude Endurance aircraft (HALE) engine called MICE for Monopropellant Internal Combustion Engine. The reference fuel is the hydroxyammonium nitrate (HAN) based monopropellant AF-M315E developed by AFRL for small thrusters in space applications. The heat of combustion of AF-M315E is ...

  4. Straight Jacket-Tracked Vehicle Barriers

    SBC: C-2 INNOVATIONS INC.            Topic: SB072007

    Straight Jacket is a combined effect system laid down as a mat that attacks the running gear of tracked vehicles using a combination of effects. Rather than counter the mass and power of the heavy armor head on, the Straight Jacket system is a subtle approach and uses the running gears design vulnerabilities to its advantage. The system target area is large (9m diameter) and has already been sho ...

  5. Gradual Revelation of Organized Information via Interactive Transmission (GROKIT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB072032

    PowerPoint™ is ubiquitous within government, military, academic, and commercial organizations, yet has many drawbacks that impair knowledge transfer. Authors must fit information into a linear array of slide-size chunks, built from generic primitives like bullets and clipart. This organization can obscure information, and ignores the human capacity for “visual cognition.” There is no interac ...

  6. Multi-Core Applications

    SBC: CILK ARTS, INC.            Topic: SB072010

    Multicore technology is forcing concurrency into the mainstream of programming. In general, the application developer will have little control over the execution environment, such as the number of cores. New tools will be needed to help application developers identify parallelism, write correct and scalable code, and analyze performance bottlenecks. We propose to use dynamic instrumentation to bu ...

  7. Explosives Detection in Residential Building Ventilation Systems

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB062022

    One approach to locating bombs is analytical monitoring with portable spectroscopy systems. Such a technique needs to work in adverse environments, be amenable to use by field operators, and, given the sensitive nature of the target materials, should have an extremely rapid response time with no false negatives. Our goals of the Phase II Program are to compile a comprehensive SERS library of exp ...

  8. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA)

    SBC: IISI CORP.            Topic: SOCOM08001

    IISI Corporation proposes to develop a Small Team Command, Control Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA) product to improve situational awareness while maintaining a Low Probability of Detection (LPD) for Special Operations teams in/under the water and on land. Phase I of the SBIR 08-001solicitation is limited to a Feasibility Study of the C3SA technology. IISI Corporation has assembl ...

  9. Tactical Teams: Cooperative Robot/Human Teams for Tactical Maneuvers

    SBC: IROBOT CORP.            Topic: SB062009

    The Tactical Teams project goal is to demonstrate the feasibility of a framework and relevant technologies to support robot and human teams in the collaborative performance of specialized tactical maneuvers. The Tactical Teams framework will facilitate human/robot teaming through the coordination of task roles; the use of natural communication modalities; including verbal and non-verbal avenues to ...

  10. High Altitude, Deployable, Carbon Fiber Composite Wing Kit with Very High Lift to Drag Ratio

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: SB072042

    A difficult challenge for high altitude, long endurance aircraft is the structural design and packaging of very high aspect ratio wings. Trade studies have identified a requirement for deployable wings which are far too long for the conventional solution of simply pivoting outward from the wing root. KaZaK proposes to develop an alternative wing deployment design that can roughly double the span o ...
