  1. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  2. An Extensible 6DOF Vision Framework for Accurate Location and Pose Estimation in a Scene Graph Context

    SBC: ROADNARROWS LLC            Topic: 9051173R

    RoadNarrows proposes a novel architecture to be implemented in a 6DOF vision system with applications in autonomous robotics. The system will report objects of interest along with location and pose information to a supervising computer. This system will be built around an advanced 3D vision platform that can deliver multiple video streams and 3D spatial measurements. The sensors will deliver high- ...

  3. High Speed and High Sensitivity Quadrant Photodetector

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: 912085R

    To further advance the characterization and utility of microcantilevers, next generation optical detectors with higher frequency response, improved displacement resolution and lower noise for weak signal detection are needed. Consequently, Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc. (RMD) will develop a turnkey optical detector module for use in characterizing the displacement and resonant frequencies of m ...

  4. Lithium-Ion (Li-ion) and Lithium-ion Polymer (Li-polymer) Battery Safety

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP1

    Physical Sciences, Inc. (PSI) has demonstrated that electroactive polymer coatings (EAP) may be applied to the surface of the cathode materials for lithium-ion batteries to protect against catastrophic cell failure. These EAP coatings form an electrochemical"switch"that can prevent catastrophic failure in lithium-ion batteries by reversibly changing from a conductor to an insulator on overdischarg ...

  5. Power Generation and Storage for Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV)

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) have emerged as a critical need for the U.S. Air Force. MAVs are envisioned to conduct a variety of indoor and outdoor reconnaissance missions and must be highly mobile and man-portable. Furthermore, many of the envisioned missions for MAVs require significant endurance. Unfortunately, current state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries are not capable of providing sufficient e ...
