  1. Lightweight Deformable Mirror Systems

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: N/A

    In this project, a lightweight membrane mirror device will be integrated into an adaptive control system, capable of correcting static and dynamic primary-mirror shape errors in a space-based telescope. The core innovation will be the use of a multi-zone, deformable mirror fabricated by thin-film surface micromachining. Contour shape of the mirror membrane will be controlled by an array of electro ...

  3. A compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system

    SBC: Flight Landata, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The innovation is a compact, UAV compatible, high-definition hyperspectral imaging system. The system concurrently-acquires a hyperspectral image using a compact grating imaging spectrometer and a much-higher spatial resolution color photographic image using a portable, measurement-grade, high-definition CCD camera (2,000 x 1,312 pixel). The spectral resolution of the hyperspectral image is better ...

  4. Imaging and Analyzing Plant Stresses in the Ag-Ecology

    SBC: Growtech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed R/R&D effort will obtain new improved, in situ measurements of vegetation using a computer-based fluorescence imaging system that images and processes the plant's cellular energy emissions to quantify and diagnose the plant's photosynthetic pathways. With multi-spectral bandwidths and image processing which increase the system's sensitivity, fluorescence-imaging diagnoses early plant ...

  5. Integrated software toolbox for aeroelastic modeling and dynamic stability analysis of a Generic Hypersonic Vehicle

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Aeroservoelastic (ASE) modeling and vehicle stability analysis are twomajor concerns in the accurate prediction of flight characteristics ofgeneric hypersonic vehicles (GHVs). We propose to develop an ASE modelingand vehicle stability analysis toolkit. System Identification (SI)-basedblack box models of CFD solvers is the primary focus in Phase I.Bifurcation and Chaos Theory Methodology (BACTM) is ...

  6. Development of a Truly Lattice-Matched III-Nitride Technology for

    SBC: CERMET, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Cermet, in collaboration with researchers at Georgia Institute of Technology, proposes to implement a lattice matched III-Nitride technology using existing substrates. The implementation of a lattice matched substrate promises to produce near dislocationfree III-Nitrides for the first time while the use of an existing substrate technology dramatically lowers development cost and reduces the devel ...

  7. Improved SiC Materials for High Power Electronics

    SBC: PHOENIX INNOVATION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Silicon has long been the semiconductor of choice for high-voltage power electronic applications. Recently, SiC has attracted attention because SiC is projected to have better performance than silicon. [1] SiC power switching devices have yet to becommercialized, largely due to SiC crystal defects, most notably the device-killing micropipe defect, which does not permit high total current parts t ...

  8. A Tunable Interferometric Random Optical Cross-Switch

    SBC: Scientific Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    A random access, solid-state, optical cross-switch capable of 770 channel discrimination in the telecommunications C-band is designed and proven as an alternative to current thin-film WDM devices and as a mechanically robust alternative tomicroelectromechanical (MEMS) WDM devices. The device may be used in multiplexing (mux), demultiplexing (demux), or complete cross-switch configurations, and is ...

  9. Novel heterojunction diodes for High Power Electronics

    SBC: VIATRONIX            Topic: N/A

    The wide-bandgap semiconductors GaN and SiC hold great promise for high temperature and highpower electronic devices. This is due to the attractive properties these materials possess, such as wide energy bandgaps, high breakdown fields, high thermalconductivities, and high saturated electron velocities. In addition, GaN and SiC have adequate electron mobilities and can readily be doped n and p ty ...

  10. Advanced Accelerator Design to Enhance Boron-Neutron-Capture Therapy

    SBC: Science Research Laboratory, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Recent clinical trials have cast doubt on the efficacy of Boron Neutron Capture Therapy (BNCT) for brain tumor treatment when low energy, reactor-generated neutron beams are used. It has been predicted that higher energy, accelerator-produced neutron beams would have an epithermal neutron spectrum that would be much more effective. Therefore, this project will design and fabricate an innovative ...
