  2. Fabrication of 3D Photonic Crystals in the RF Range for Man-Portable Antenna Applications

    SBC: Antennovation            Topic: A05T017

    Antennovation and the Pennsylvania State University propose to develop novel new electromagnetic bandgap (EBG) materials in conjunction with miniaturized broadband antennas for use in man-portable antenna applications. The proposed antenna/EBG system will be designed to be low-profile, compact, and light-weight for helmet-mounted antennas and/or other body-worn applications. The frequency range o ...

  3. Hybrid Textile-Based Multi-Layered Flexible System for Penetration Resistance (MSC P5016)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: A05T004

    The currently fielded Interceptor Body Armor System employs an Outer Tactical Vest (OTV) made of lightweight fabric material with Small Arms Protective Inserts (SAPIs) for protection against fragmentation, small arms and rifle-fired threats. The SAPI plates are rigid and brittle, limiting their protection coverage area to the torso. In addition, the plates are susceptible to environmental degrada ...

  4. Fast Laser Pulse Shaping for Molecular Control and CB Detection

    SBC: Proteus Optics Llc            Topic: A04T008

    We propose the development of a commercial prototype laser pulse shaping system for the defense, industrial and academic communities for advanced laser processing applications. The system will be used for closed-loop control of molecular reactions and dynamics by coherent electromagnetic fields. During Phase I we built and tested a breadboard system and due to its simplified optical system showed ...

  5. High Power IMPATT-Mode AlGaN/GaN HFETs for mm-Wave Applications

    SBC: SVT ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: A05T008

    A new Aluminum gallium nitride (AlGaN) based heterojunction field-effect transistor (HFET) structure is proposed that utilizes avalanche impact ionization for very high frequency operation (>100 GHz). The main goal of this program is to demonstrate the potential of these devices as a replacement for vacuum tubes in mm-wave applications including radars and communications transmitters. In the Pha ...

  6. Intracranial Hematoma/ Burr Hole and Trauma Flap Simulator

    SBC: VEREFI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: OSD05T004

    Head trauma is an increasingly common occurrence in the battlefield. Improved body armor, and the use of improvised explosive devices by the enemy have shifted the pattern of injury to the extremities, and the head. Forward-based hospitals and rapid medical evacuation have increased the number of wounded warfighters that can be saved, if treated promptly. Surgeons with neurosurgery training are ...

  7. Powerful Source of Collimated Coherent Infrared Radiation with Pulse Duration Fewer than Ten Cycles

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A14AT006

    Few-cycle mid-infrared lasers are highly demanded for a variety of practical applications. NP Photonics and University of Arizona propose to develop a wavelength tunable and power-scalable optical parametric laser system at 8-12 micron capable of producing collimated few-cycle pulses with pulse energy>100 microJoule. In this phase I program, we will design the whole laser system and do a feasibil ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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.

  10. Terrain Analysis for Human-Robot Interaction (TAH-RI)

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: A04T001

    Understanding the right thing to do in the battlespace is contingent on knowledge of the terrain and its tactical importance for military operations (e.g., terrain restricts or enhances abilities to observe, move, and shoot). The product of this Phase II effort will be TAH-RI, a COTS software component for systems developers, enabling them to easily make systems capable of identifying terrain fea ...
