  1. Transport of Underwater Sensor Data

    SBC: BENTHOS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Undersea sensors require means of transporting data to an end-user. Acoustic modem networks are being developed for this purpose, but they are limited by battery power, network priorities, and requirements for clandestine operations. We propose a systemsapproach to reducing the impact on the network of moving large volumes of data, using both low rate and high rate acoustic telemetry, combined w ...

  2. 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 ...

  4. A Revolutionary Hybrid Pultrusion/VARTM Process for Making Very Large Two-Sided Composite Structures Exhibiting Bending-Twisting Coupling

    SBC: KaZaK Composites Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    KaZaK Composites and Stanford University propose to design, develop and demonstrate a prototype bending-twisting-coupled composite rudder for the DDG 51. The Phase I design and process development effort will include classical laminated plate theory,finite element analysis and VARTM mold flow analysis. Test structures will be fabricated by two different methods during Phase I. First, an approximat ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Satellite Communications for Autonomous Ocean Systems: 2-Way ARGOS as a first step

    SBC: Webb Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A multi-discipline team, led by an AUV developer/user Webb Research Corporation (WRC), has been formed that includes a satellite communications company (ARGOS Inc.), a satellite modem developer (Seimac Ltd.), and the non-profit Autonomous Undersea SystemsInstitute (AUSI). This team will provide, as a result of the proposed effort, a distributed development environment appropriate of all AUVs to u ...

  9. Autonomous Operation of a Coordinated Underwater Glider Fleet

    SBC: Webb Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Webb Research Corporation (WRC) and Rutgers University (RU) plan to provide an important advance in regional-scale coastal ocean observation programs by operating a coordinated fleet of glider AUVs in an intelligent adaptive network. Slocum autonomousunderwater vehicle Gliders (AUVGs) are uniquely mobile network components capable of moving to specific locations and depths, occupying controlled s ...

  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 ...
