  2. Formalism for Millimeter-wave Modeling of RADAR Cross Sections

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT002

    In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting flat and rough surfaces to penetra ...

  3. Enhanced Charge Transfer in Biological Molecules on Nanostructured Electrode Surfaces

    SBC: Polestar Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT011

    The overall objective of this program is to enhance significantly charge transfer from biological molecules to nanostructured electrode surfaces. To achieve this objective, we plan to use combination of three approaches: 1) Develop an effective means for integrating the biological molecules onto the anode and cathode surfaces of the nanostructured electrodes, 2) Reduce the distance between the act ...

  4. High Performance InAs and InN Semiconductor Gas Sensors

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop low-cost, planar gas sensors, with high sensitivity and high selectivity. Gas sensors are critical to many existing and emerging applications in defense and homeland security. Present technology gas sensors based on metal oxide films do not have the required sensitivity or selectivity. The technical appr ...

  5. Raman Biosensor for High Throughput Pollen Analysis

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A12aT018

    We propose to develop a device that is capable of rapidly identifying and classifying pollen from a broad sampling base using surface enhanced Raman spectroscopy (SERS). The proposed Raman device is designed to spectroscopically examine, identify and classify the spatial and temporal origin of pollen in complex mixtures using an automated high throughput SERS microscope system. The entire system w ...

  6. HOVPE Growth of High Quality AlGaN on AlN substrates

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT019

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) along with the Electro Optics Center - Pennsylvania State University will apply its hybrid Hydride Metal-Organic Vapor Phase Epitaxy (HOVPE) based growth methods to produce optimum quality AlxGa1-xN on AlN substrates. The Phase I goal is to convincingly demonstrate the advantages of the HOVPE technique to produce high quality, epita ...

  7. Atomic Layer Deposition of PbZrxTi1-xO3 Thin Films for PiezoMEMS Applications

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT020

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) will develop process technology to deposit uniform films of piezoelectric PbZrxTi1-xO3, on substrates with complex 3-dimensional topography. Piezoelectric PbZrxTi1-xO3 films are a critical technology for advanced Micro Electro Mechanical System (MEMS), to provide low power actuation in nanoscale devices. Our technical approach is ...

  8. Spectrally-selective microbolometer

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12aT023

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI), in collaboration with its STTR partner Sandia National Laboratories, proposes to develop a spectrally-selective microbolometer. The latter is the core technology behind an envisioned Phase III handheld chemical standoff sensor for detection of chemical warfare (CW) agents and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). The spectrally-selective microbolometer, underpinned by na ...

  9. Polymer with Enhanced Conductivity for Broadband Spectral Obscurant Applications

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A12aT024

    The Army is interested in developing conductive polymer materials that have a very high conductivity, but are also processable into a range of particle shapes and sizes. These anisotropic particles will be tuned to provide obscuration properties in broad portions of the electromagnetic spectrum. PSI, and its partner Prof. Jennifer Irvin at the Texas State University, will develop two parallel pa ...

  10. Landmark Navigation for Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: MOBILE INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: A12aT030

    Mobile Intelligence Corporation (MIC) and Wayne State University propose a virtual teleoperation and visual landmark navigation system for UGV teleoperation in buildings, tunnels and caves. The challenge is search and navigation in complex structures with sparse visual cues, high-latency low-bandwidth communications, UGVs with low-cost vision sensors, and only intermittent static 2D visual feedba ...
