  1. IMAGINE: Imagery Management through Agile, Geo-Interactive, Natural Embodiment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: NGA11002

    Overhead imagery analysts employ computer-based software as Electronic Light Tables (ELTs), to perform detailed analysis of aerial images in search of elements of interest. Conventional display design for ELT software requires analysts to take their eyes away from the image they are analyzing to perform routine functions. This interaction overhead typically leads to losses in visual momentum and i ...

  2. Quantitative Analysis of ALON and Spinel Dome Blanks

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: A11078

    Multimode seekers are receiving significant attention as a way to provide more capability in the same package. In some cases, both optical and millimeter wave seekers are being combined in a way that requires a common aperture. The requirements for such a system place a tremendous burden on the design and production of the dome. The optical requirements on such domes drive the associated tolerance ...

  3. Silicon Nanowire Phototransistor (SNAP) Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A10081

    Agiltron will develop the Silicon Nanowire Phototransistor (SNAP) Imager, a silicon-based imager with unprecedented capability for low light level imaging. The unique nanoscale architecture of the fully CMOS-compatible silicon nanowire phototransistor enables uncooled operation with low dark current and strong visible, NIR, and SWIR sensitivity. When monolithically integrated with CMOS readout int ...

  4. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Sensor protection against agile-frequency lasers is a critical Army Technology Objective (ATO). We propose simple defocusing of existing sensor optics as a layer within the optical limiting (OL) stack. This requires no additional optical components, and promotes compatibility with other OL stack elements. The challenge resides in computing the inverse filtering operation to recover the in-focus im ...

  5. Mobile Bioelectric Filtration System (MBFS): Accelerated Anaerobic Digestion via Bio-Electrochemical Reactions

    SBC: CAMBRIAN INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: A11051

    Current United States military contingency operations require more sustainable Forward Operating Bases (FOBs). Major problems for FOBs include the supply of fuel and water and the removal and treatment of wastewater. Microbial Fuel Cells and Bio-electrochemical systems utilize newly discovered electrically active microbes to generate direct electric current and other value-added products while tre ...

  6. Large-Area UV-Selective Silicon-Based Avalanche Photodiodes

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: A11033

    This Phase I SBIR proposal aims to develop for the first time high efficiency large-area, low-noise UV avalanche photodiodes on silicon-on-insulator (SOI) structures. These devices will benefit from Spire"s patented technology to selectivity detect UV radiation with efficiency levels at greater than 80% while being relatively insensitive to longer visible and near infrared photons. Upon success ...

  7. Low Cost Embedded Dust Detector (EDD) for M1 Abrams/Ground Combat Vehicle (GCV)

    SBC: Templeman Automation, LLC            Topic: A11066

    The AGT-1500 turbine engine is the basis of the M1 Abrams tank power-plant. A low-cost embedded dust detector (EDD) that could be integrated into the AGT-1500 would provide value to the M1's standard sensor equipment by reducing engine damage and improving operational readiness. However, the cost and effort of any significant addition requiring new wiring routes would rapidly eclipse the sens ...

  8. Measuring Fuel Quantity in Collapsible Fabric Storage Tanks

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A11067

    Leveraging on Agiltron"s extensive experience in fiber sensor development, we propose to develop a customized sensing system with the ability to measure fuel quantity in a collapsible tank. Based primarily on mature technologies and commercially available components, the proposed sensor system is simple in construction and ready to be implemented. In Phase I, a small scale sensor will be built for ...

  9. Lithium Ion Battery Separator with High Temperature Stability

    SBC: OPTODOT CORPORATION            Topic: A11065

    A separator involving composite materials is provided that meets the lithium ion battery requirements for separators with high temperature stability at 220C and above and with mechanical strength and flexibility. The heat stable properties are obtained from using aluminum oxide particles at over 75% by weight that prevent any shrinkage of the composite separator. The mechanical strength without ...

  10. Mid-Infrared Laser Beam Combining Module for Infrared Countermeasure Application

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: A11029

    There is a compelling need for scaling the output of mid-infrared lasers to much higher power, brightness, and energy, particularly for infrared countermeasure application. We propose a Phase I configuration that demonstrates WBC of four (4) quantum cascade lasers in a single waveband (Band 4b). This achievement will substantiate the feasibility of WBC cavities constructed with QCL active devices. ...
