  1. Embedded Self-repairing Antenna Composite (ESAC)

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: A13AT012

    The goal of the proposed research is to develop self-healing embedded communication antennas to be used in transparent armori.e., ground vehicle windows. Embedded antennas are known to delaminate from their host structures after impact; this allows an empty space to form around the antenna and as a result detunes the antenna. A sandwich structure will be designed, fabricated, and tested whereby th ...

  2. Advanced Wavelength Tuners for Chem-Bio Detection Lasers

    SBC: LFK Technology Corp.            Topic: A11aT024

    Several laser types are in development by the government for advanced proximal sensors, including the quantum cascade laser, the miniature solid state laser with optical parametric oscillator and the miniature CO2 gas laser. The enabling critical component for all these advanced transmitters is the compact, robust, rapid, precision wavelength selector. It is proposed to develop and deliver a sta ...

  3. In-Flight Laser Sensor for Measurement of Acoustic Self-Radiation

    SBC: Phase Coherence, Inc.            Topic: A14AT001

    We propose a system that utilizes an on-board laser to measure the acoustic radiation emitted by an air platform. Its immediate advantages are access to in/above-horizon acoustic radiation, good discrimination against ground reflections, high signal compared to background noise, and, at the same time, precise synchronization with helicopter operating state and rotor blade position.The technique is ...

  4. High Gain, High Power PCSS with Integrated Monolithic Optical Trigger

    SBC: Eureka Aerospace            Topic: A14AT004

    This proposal addresses the problem of PCSS/laser trigger integration using a single monolithic laser diode array, thus simplifying the entire optical delivery network necessary for efficient operation of PCSSs. Phase 1 effort will focus on (1) overall feasibility study of integrating PCSS with a miniature laser diode array, (2) tradeoff analysis between several options, which will result in choo ...

  6. Ultra-Coherent Semiconductor Laser Technology

    SBC: TELARIS INC            Topic: A14AT005

    Spontaneous emission is a quantum mechanical process that represents the main source of phase noise in state-of-the-art semiconductor lasers, limiting their coherence, and their suitability for high-speed communication and sensing applications. This proposal aims to develop ultra-high coherence semiconductor lasers on the Silicon/III-V platform with a quantum linewidth of

  7. Technology to Regulate Circadian Rhythm for Health and Performance

    SBC: BRAIN STATE TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A14AT009

    We propose a wearable, dual-use neurotechnology device. The Personal Brainwave Headband, driven by tablet or smartphone, is designed for noninvasive closed-loop acoustic stimulation, to permit improved circadian regulation. It will measure brain electrical activity from scalp overlying four key sectors of cortex, perform high-resolution spectral analysis of the signals, and use software algorith ...

  8. Parallel Two-Electron Reduced Density Matrix Based Electronic Structure Software for Highly Correlated Molecules and Materials

    SBC: Q-CHEM, INC.            Topic: A14AT013

    By eliminating the wave function as the central variable in quantum chemistry, variational two-electron reduced-density-matrix (2-RDM) methods offer the potential to revolutionize the computational description of strongly correlated molecules and materials. However, present implementations of the variational 2-RDM methods have yet to emerge from a state of initial development to one where nonexpe ...

  9. Rapidly and Broadly Tunable High-Power Infrared Lasers for Standoff Detection Applications

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A14AT015

    In response to the Army STTR Topic A14A-T015 solicitation for tunable high-power LWIR lasers for standoff detection applications, Pranalytica proposes to develop a compact, rugged and highly reliable wavelength tunable quantum cascade laser (QCL) module delivering over 5W of peak power and over 0.5W of average power in the spectral region spanning from 7 to 11µm. The proposed approach is based on ...

  10. Solar Blind MgZnO Photodetectors

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: A13AT006

    This project address the fabrication of solar blind detectors from the MgZnO material system. Both MBE and MOCVD material growth techniques will be used for deposition of the required material layers. Simulation software we be used to aid in the design of the photodetector structure. Devices will be fabricated from the grown structures and their electrical and optical characteristics determined.
