  1. High Throughput E-Beam Lithography System


    NOVA Scientific, Inc. proposes to develop an electron-beam lithography system capable of high throughput patterning of full-sized semiconductor wafers with minimum feature size to 0.1 um and below. NOVA's key design element is the use of a novel and robust electron source based upon field emission phenomena that is capable of delivering high current to the resist for fast, reproducible exposures. ...

  2. High-Density, Reconfigurable Optical Routing Interconnects

    SBC: Macro-vision Communications,            Topic: N/A

    High-density reconfigurable optical routing interconnect is introduced in this SBIR program for optical signal processing. This structure is based on three key features: 1) Polarization manipulation using 2-D spatial light modulators; 2) polarization complementary geometry; and 3) the throw-away undesired optical energies design. The polarization manipulation provides the basis for "no-moving" par ...

  3. Inertial Energy Storage and Roll Control Module

    SBC: RCT Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The BMDO as part of its kinetic energy systems development requires an expendable, inertial guidance package. SatCon is proposing to develop an angular rate sensor combined with an accelerometer which are microfabricated on a single "chip" using the LIGA lithographic process. The accelerometer element employs a rebalanced cantilever, oriented orthogonally to the substrate, while the rate sensor u ...

  4. A System to Enhance Team Decision-Making Peformance

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N/A

    In complex human-machine systems such as military command and control (C2), corporatestrategic planning, air traffic control, and computer-supported collaborative work, the scope and complexity of the task often require that the decision-making function be distributed over several humans organized in distributed or collocated teams. For this project, we propose to enhance a proven research tool, ...

  5. Single Crystal Relaxor-Based Ferroelectrics Offer a Quantum

    SBC: TETRAD CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to apply recent advancements in the growth of piezoelectric single crystal materials to build ultrasound transducers with very broad bandwidth, which can improve and simplify ultrasound imaging for combat casualty care. Relaxor-based ferroelectric materials of PZN-PT and PMN-PT have been shown to have coupling factors for some modes of over 90%. Transducer modelin ...

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A forward and lateral looking scanning Doppler lidar is proposed for use onboard aircraft to sense and display windshear in the vicinity of the planned flight path, particularly windshear due to the vortex wakes of preceding large aircraft. The goal is to provide the pilot with an assessment, visual display, and warning of the windshear in the vicinity of the projected flight path, with ...

  7. Multipurpose WDM Routin

    SBC: CORETEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    CoreTek Inc. proposes a novel semiconductor-optical-amplifier (SOA) based four-port device that can be used as a wavelength converter, data regenerator, ATM header recognition system, and high-speed bit-error rate tester. These functions are presently performed electronically at low speed and require converting the optical data to an electrical signal. Our device is a novel hybrid of LiNbO3 Mach-Z ...

  9. Development of an Expendable, Gun-Launched Observation Vehicle


    Development of an expendable observation vehicle is proposed which is capable of launch from guns with calibers from 120 to 155 mm, sustaining set-back loads of 15,000 g. A 10-pound payload of sensors and guidance and communications gear is to be carried in a loiter pattern at 10,000 feet altitude for 3 hours. A conceptual design for the vehicle was generated which meets the competing requirement ...

  10. Stress-Optic Laser Scanning for Matrix Code Reading, Laser Communications and Directed Energy

    SBC: Seaver Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Seaver Engineering proposes to develop a laser scanner that is both highly innovative technically and applicable to a broad and deep commercial market. The innovation lies in its use of stress-induced beam refraction in ordinary optical glasses; the commercial potential lies in its use as a "code reader"in the large bar and matrix code markets. It is solid-state, high-speed, with high optical thro ...
