  1. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    Cyberspace superiority is a prerequisite for effective operations in all other warfighting domains. To maintain cyberspace superiority, there is a need for effective Command and Control (C2) tools to observe, plan, and execute cyber operations. Visualization is a key enabler of C2 but new approaches are required to address cyber security data sets. A principal challenge is the complexity of this d ...

  2. Aerosol Plasmon-Enhanced Laser Desorption Ionization

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: AF09BT34

    Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will collaborate to develop a novel technique for efficient mass spectrometric analysis of high molecular weight analytes such as proteins and polymers. Laser desorption and ionization with minimal analyte fragmentaton will be carried out on metal nanoparticle substrates in a particle beam sampled by Aerodyne’s proprie ...

  3. Uncooled Photomechanical Terahertz Imagers

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF09BT33

    Agiltron and the University of Massachusetts Lowell will develop a transformational terahertz (THz) imager based on Agiltron’s established optical readout photomechanical imaging technology. The photomechanical imager contains a MEMS-based focal plane array that transduces THz radiation into a visible signal for capture by a high-performance CCD imager. By leveraging the advances made in the fie ...

  4. High Optical Power Fiberoptic Components for 2 µm Fiber Laser

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF093158

    The proposed innovative in-fiber beam expansion technology and the all inorganic micro-optic fiberoptic device designs intrinsically have advantages in power handling, speed, insertion loss, reliability, and potentially cost as compared with other approaches. Our approaches overcome all the major hurdles in high power 2m fiberoptic device fabrications without trading-off of optical performance ...

  5. Megapixel Uncooled Photomechanical LWIR Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM07005

    This Phase II technology pursuit is a follow-on research and development effort to USSOCOM’s Phase I SBIR Contract No. H92222-07-P-0051. As the result of this follow-on Phase II effort, Agiltron shall provide and demonstrate two (2) very high resolution, low power and low cost imagers that collect long wave infrared (LWIR) radiation and that produce imagery of a target object. BENEFITS: The Gove ...

  6. Instrumentation for Nanoscale Spectroscopy

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF08BT30

    We propose to develop a combination Tip-Enhanced Raman Scattering and Shear-Force Microscopy (TERS-SFM) instrument to study the composition and morphology of nanoparticles, surfaces, and biofilms on any substrate material. The instrument developed during Phase I will rely upon Scanning Tunneling Microscopy combined with TERS (TERS-STM) to test the effects of various excitation wavelengths and tip ...

  7. Adaptive multi-mode photodetector and focal plane array

    SBC: APPLIED NANOFEMTO TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: AF09BT37

    Multi-modal (including spatial, spectral and polarimetric) photodetectors and focal plane arrays (FPA) can dramatically enhance the target detection, tracking and identification capability of a battle field sensing system. Most existing multi-spectral polarimetric sensing systems employ dispersive optics (gratings or prisms), or external polarizer technologies to obtain spectral and polarimetric c ...

  8. System for Information and Meta-information Portrayal of Lessons-learned (SIMPL)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF08T002

    Availability of massive amounts of information afforded by net-centric operations poses a challenge for identifying information relevant for effective decision-making. Complex domains, such as Operational Assessment, require the ability to access and analyze relevant information to support mission objectives. However, access to large amounts of information can cause overload and thereby hinder ide ...

  9. Agent Driven Visualizations for Increasing Collaboration Effectiveness (ADVICE)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF093025

    As the Air Force organizational structure grows more distributed, geographically separated team members will need a collaborative working space where they can generate shared understanding and synchronize collective C2 and ISR activities. Currently, there is no way to collaboratively visualize coordinated information from operations and intelligence sources across operational and planning functio ...

  10. Learning Estimates of Aggregate Performance Phase II (LEAP II)

    SBC: Aptima, Inc.            Topic: AF083180

    Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance (ISR) systems are becoming more and more complex, with ever increasing fidelity of data and ever increasing numbers of deployable sensors, such as those found on Unmanned Air Vehicles (UAV’s). Furthermore, the current theater of war is becoming increasingly unforgiving, amplifying operator errors into critical mistakes that must be avoided at all co ...
