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

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Devising a means to reduce the fluence at the image sensor by a factor of 100 would eliminate the threat from all but the largest, cumbersome sources. We propose that the needed fluence reduction can be achieved by operating the existing imager at a strongly defocused setting, and applying hardware-accelerated existing state-of-the-art image deblurring algorithms to its data stream. Several exist ...

  2. Ultrasound Assisted Oxidative Desulfurization of JP-8 Fuel

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A07T017

    The objective of this work is to develop a compact, robust process that reduces the sulfur content of jet fuel to less than 10 ppm prior to its reformation and use in a solid oxide fuel cell (SOFC) fuel cell. The target power range of the SOFC is 2 kW. In addition to military applications, the desulfurization technology will be compatible for SOFCs used for emergency or backup power generation, ...

  4. Multi-differential Optical Trigger Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A08078

    Agiltron proposes a new multi-differential laser radar (MDLIDAR) optical trigger detection system. The design innovatively implements multiple stages of both optical hardware and image processing firmware filtering to reject background noise and clutter. The incorporated technologies include differentiations in polarization, spectra, time-domain, and space to achieve unsurpassed high detection se ...

  6. Compact Unit for Eye-Safe Standoff Explosive Detection

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08055

    The goal of this work is to develop a novel Raman scattering spectrometer for advance standoff detection of IEDs and suicide bomber threats. When using the proposed instrument, we will obtain rapid, chemical-specific analysis at standoff distances of up to 30 m. This instrument will have significantly increased detection sensitivity, measurement accuracy and analysis rates compared to more conve ...

  7. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  8. Protecting Sensitive Data through Novel Algorithm Transformations and Algebraic Splitting

    SBC: ARXAN RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05A10

    This Phase II proposal extends the technique developed during Phase I for protecting CPI into a commercially viable and generally applicable source-to-source transformation engine. In addition, we expand the Phase I approach to support high-performance secure computation through careful division of tasks, between a slower secured processor, and multiple high-performance general-purpose COTS proce ...

  9. Modular Transit Case Cooler

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A08083

    Aspen Systems proposes to develop a modular cooling system for mobile electronics applications. This system will be highly adaptable and have the capability to maintain lower than ambient temperatures in mobile and stationary electronics enclosures that are deployed to hot desert environments. While maintaining these low operating temperatures, the electronics systems will be completely sealed a ...

  10. Advanced Cooling for Satellite Communications On-the-Move Antennas

    SBC: Aspen Systems, Inc.            Topic: A08106

    Aspen Systems Inc. proposes to develop a proprietary antenna cooling system for Satellite Communications on-the-move (SATCOM OTM) applications. This system will replace an existing thermal control unit with a lighter and higher performance system designed to keep the antenna electronics cooler than existing systems and cooler than ambient. The system will consist of a series of heat exchangers i ...
