  1. A Protoflight High Specific Power Electric Propulsion System

    SBC: MSNW, LLC            Topic: SB101012

    The Electromagnetic Plasmoid Thruster (EMPT) has demonstrated the ability to ionize, electromagnetically accelerate, and eject a broad range of complex and chemically-reactive molecular gases, including monopropellants. EMPT has the potential to dramatically increase the operational range of existing electric propulsion (EP) systems in both power density, power throttling, and propellant choice. P ...

  2. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  3. Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR)

    SBC: MZEAL COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: SB102002

    Use of"Smartphones"and cellular networks is becoming an increasing priority for military applications. By placing the source of information directly with the solider on the ground via a Smartphone, the vision of"every soldier a sensor"becomes attainable. mZeal proposes to facilitate this vision with the Adaptive Multi-Media Streaming for Android (AMMSTAR) system. AMMSTAR will capture photographic ...

  4. AURA- Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: SB101002

    Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) functions as virtual tutors that adapt to student responses. Such ITSs, however, do not yield student learning improvements equivalent to students tutored by human instructors. Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect (AURA) is a closed-loop, platform-independent"front-end"for informing ITSs with near real-time inferences of student engagement and affect during learning ...

  5. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  6. Cognitive Patterns: An Architecture for Distributed Control of ChemBots

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082007

    Today"s robots require a great deal of control and supervision, and are unable to intelligently respond to unanticipated and novel situations. To address this problem, we developed a preliminary architecture for Cognitive Patterns which includes Cognitive Patterns Knowledge Generation (CPKG) and has the ability to connect to various knowledge-based models, multiple sensors, and to a human operator ...

  7. Contact Lens See-Through Head Worn Display

    SBC: Innovega Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    This Phase I project will demonstrate the feasibility of using specially modified contact lenses combined with an LCD display illuminated with a wave-guided backlight to enable an 80 degree field of view see-through display. The new eyewear architecture being proposed is a radical departure from traditional near eye displays. Rather than present the eye with collimated rays of light that appear ...

  8. Design and Development of High Performance UV Imaging Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB093011

    Magnolia proposes to develop and demonstrate small unit cell APD array with high gain for high resolution imaging in the ultraviolet (UV) band. We will use MOCVD process to demonstrate GaN/AlGaN based APD arrays on lattice matched substrates with very low dark current and high avalanche gain. Models will be developed to understand characteristics of small pixel size UV detectors and mechanisms for ...

  9. Development of Low Dark Current Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Devices for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T002

    Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include eva ...

  10. Digital Eddy Current Tomography for Submarine Pressure Hull Inspection Through the Coating

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: SB091011

    A capability to inspect submarine pressure hulls through the special hull treatment could result in significant savings in maintenance costs and improvements in fleet readiness. This poses a challenge for conventional nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, as acoustic methods are defeated by the coating and others require access to the surface. This proposal focuses on evolving MWM-MR-Array (M ...
