  1. Atomic Layer Deposition of Highly Conductive Metals

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A17AT001

    Novel photonic structures, such as periodic metal-dielectric photonic bandgap structures (MDPBG) have the potential to revolutionize the field of optical windows. The large mismatch in the permittivities of the metal and dielectric creates resonant tunneling, which allows for high transmission in regions where metals are typically opaque. This property makes MDPBGs very attractive for screening or ...

  2. Heterogeneously Integrated Active Laser Sensing Platform on Si

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A17AT005

    We propose to develop highly-sensitive low size, weight, and power (SWaP) chip-scale mid-infrared integrated-optic sensors for trace gas measurements, We will combine Tunable Diode Laser Spectroscopy (TDLAS) detection techniques with narrow-linewidth fast-tuning Distributed Feedback (DFB) Quantum Cascade and Interband Cascade Lasers (QCLs and ICLs) to create a platform for a family of sensors, ea ...

  3. Self-Sensing & Self-Healing Composites via Embedded Mechanophores

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: A17AT009

    Composites are being adopted increasingly in aerospace structures due to their superior specific stiffness and strength, their resistance to fatigue and ability to greatly reduce part count. They present additional challenges for design however, due to their heterogeneity and anisotropy, and for inspection since damage often occurs beneath their surface. Currently successful laboratory non-destru ...

  4. Shelf-stable synthetic cannabinoid biosensor

    SBC: Nano Terra, Inc.            Topic: A17AT014

    Nano Terra will collaborate with the Center for Drug Discovery (CDD) at Northeastern University, to develop a sensor capable of detecting synthetic cannabinoids independently of their specific molecular structure. The sensor will be portable, label-free and most-importantly shelf stable. Our proposed sensor will employ a structurally stabilized mutant CB1 receptor as the recognition element in fl ...

  5. Method for Locally Measuring Strength of a Polymer-Inorganic Interface During Cure and Aging

    SBC: METNA CO            Topic: A17AT016

    A robust, versatile and portable test system will be developed based on the NMR relaxometry/diffusomtry principles for thorough, reliable, expedient and economical nondestructive evaluation of the polymer/inorganic interface structure and properties. NMR relaxometry/diffusometry probes sensitive volumes that can be moved to scan the interface. This nondestructive test measures a number of paramete ...

  6. Anticipatory Analytics for Environmental Stressors

    SBC: ISCIENCES L L C            Topic: A17AT021

    Environmental stresses such as droughts, floods, storms, earthquakes, wildfires, pest infestations, volcanic eruptions, and infectious disease vectors are often key contributing factors to defense interventions, including humanitarian response, counter insurgency, and border control. As a result, early phase military planning activities need to incorporate systematic monitoring and forecasting of ...

  7. Real Time Inline Bacteria Detection for Military Mobile Water Treatment System

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A17AT023

    Physical Sciences Inc., in cooperation with Boston University, proposes to develop an Interferometric Reflectance Imaging Sensor (IRIS) to detect waterborne pathogens including E. coli for use with military mobile water treatment systems. The imaging platform will employ an algorithm to discriminate E. coli based on size/shape analysis concurrent with capture probes with application to multiplexe ...

  8. Additive Manufactured Smart Structures with Discrete Embedded Sensors

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: A17AT024

    The purpose of this proposal is to additively manufacture (AM) smart structures with embedded electronics such as sensors, accelerometers, antennas, etc. The goal of these smart structures will be to enhance the effectiveness and survivability of the Armys ground systems. The use of additive manufacturing smart structures provides flexibility in the materials used and the functionality of the elec ...

  9. Preserving Navigation Access for the War FighterDevelopment of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhancement Activities

    SBC: SOFAR Acoustics, LLC            Topic: A12AT025

    This effort is focused on establishing U.S. Army Corps leadership in preserving navigation access for the war-fighter through the development and implementation of an acoustic-based sensor system to detect, track, and classify endangered species. The implementation of this system will assure critical access to port facilities and navigation channels by Department of Defense (DoD) maritime vessels ...
