  1. High-Power, Continuous-Wave 3.0- to 3.5-Micron Emitting Quantum Cascade Semiconductor Laser

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.0-3.5 micron-emitting quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures grown on metamorphic-buffer-layer (MBL) substrates; 2) the realization of electroluminescent QCL structures on MBLs with emission in the 3.0-3.5-micron wavelength range. Novel tapered active-region (TA) QCLs will be designed to substantially suppress carrier leakage out of ...

  2. Hybrid State-Detection System for Gearbox Components

    SBC: Metis Design Corporation            Topic: N12AT007

    Aerospace structures are subject to dynamic loading. In particular, gearbox components experience continuous cyclic loading, wear and eventually develop fatigue cracks. As opposed to most other aircraft components, gearbox components are non-redundant, so a failure can have catastrophic consequences. Gearbox members are typically magnesium, aluminum or high-strength steel that exhibit high fractur ...

  3. Environmentally Adaptive Arctic navigation Signal Processing

    SBC: Ocean Acoustical Services And Instrumentation Systems Inc            Topic: N12AT016

    The proposed work will focus on combined signal processing and acoustic modeling that will ultimately enable high-accuracy navigation under the Arctic ice at ranges up to and including basin scale. This combined approach is required because as the source-vehicle range increases, the bandwidth of the signals decrease because the carrier frequency must be reduced to enable long-distance communicatio ...

  4. Expendable Acoustic Source for AUV Based Geoacoustic and Geotechnical Survey Operations

    SBC: MASSA PRODUCTS CORPORATION            Topic: N12AT017

    There is a need to develop an Expendable Acoustic Source for AUV based geoacoustic and geotechnical survey operations that can be used to help determine the bottom sediment acoustic properties, which will help in planning the operation of low and mid-frequency ASU sonars in shallow water. In addition, the inversion of the acoustic information for geotechnical properties will support classification ...

  5. Innovative Dive Helmet for Hearing Conservation (1001-860)

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N12AT020

    Helmeted divers are exposed to high levels of noise. The sources of these noises can be self-generated (e.g. airflow through the demand-regulators during inhalation and bubble noise during exhalation), as well as transmitted through the helmet from underwater tools. While administrative controls (i.e. noise exposure guidance and regulations) are a necessary part of an overall hearing protection st ...

  6. Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS)

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N12AT021

    Agiltron, in partnership with Worcester Polytechnic Institute (WPI), will build and test the Infrared Robotic Imaging System (IRIS), a stereoscopic vision system to provide 3-D location and mapping capability for the navigation of firefighting robotic systems. IRIS is based on Agiltron"s uncooled photomechanical thermal imaging technology that employs the long wavelength infrared (LWIR) and terahe ...

  7. Compressive Sensing for DCGS-N

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N12AT026

    Compressive sensing (CS) is a relatively new form of data sampling that shows promise to greatly reduce the amount of information required to acquire and reconstruct information from sources such as synthetic aperture radar (SAR) imagery, electro-optical (EO) imagery, and RF data. CS has interesting practical applications in processing/exploitation of imagery, signals, and other structured data. S ...

  8. Information Salience

    SBC: Vistology, Inc.            Topic: OSD11TD1

    An intelligence analyst"s job is to monitor a stream of incoming reports and sensor data for information relevant to a situation, detect the salient information, answer the commander"s priority intelligence requirements (PIRs) and distill the salient information into a concise estimate of what is currently going on, what is most likely to happen, and what is the most dangerous course of events tha ...

  9. Prediction of the Full-Scale Cook-off Response Based on Small-Scale Testing

    SBC: BLAZETECH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT011

    Currently, assessment of ordnance items for IM and Hazards Classification (HC) characterization requires full-scale testing which presents a considerable financial, logistical, and environmental burden. Some of these munitions (such as the large rocket motors) cost in excess of a million dollars and their hazard testing is likely to cost several million dollars. Therefore, testing on a smaller sca ...

  10. Efficient isomer-selective biosynthesis of pinene from cellulosic feedstocks

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N10BT046

    There is a need to find more efficient methods for producing high-density, liquid, tactical fuels for use in missile propulsion or as components to improve key performance characteristics of currently available jet and diesel fuels. Generation of such fuels from renewable sources including waste cellulose, grasses, waste agricultural material and forestry products will provide important national s ...
