  6. Rapid Ethnographic Assessment and Data management Integration Toolkit (READ-IT)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    Socio-cultural factors are increasingly being recognized as critical to effective military operations. Therefore, collection and analysis of socio-cultural data is required to provide Warfighters with a comprehensive understanding of their operational environment. Warfighters need tools that enable the capture, management, and rapid analysis of socio-cultural data from heterogeneous sources (e.g., ...

  8. MOCVD of High Performance Complex Oxide Films for Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners are developing high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When integrated into resonator structures, these materials can act as both an RF filter and an RF switch. Combin ...
