  2. High Speed Room Temperature Single Photon Counters

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A11aT008

    Detecting light at the single photon level is a fundamental measurement function that is useful in a wide variety of applications, including such diverse fields as biological spectroscopy, laser ranging, and quantum communications. Avalanche photodiode (APD) based single photon detectors (SPDs) are very convenient in that they are small solid state devices that don"t require cryogenic cooling. Si- ...

  3. Training Battery for the Rapid Formation of Cognitively Ready, Effective Teams

    SBC: TANAGRAM PARTNERS            Topic: OSD10CR4

    This proposal outlines a method to aid in the rapid formation of cognitively ready, effective teams. It addresses key problems that exist in other training approaches, integrates and cost shares with another current OSD SBIR topic, and is directly informed by real-world situations that the soldiers will face. Real-time captured intelligence can be accessed through our Intelligent Augmented Realit ...

  4. Weapons System Flow Separation

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: A10149

    We propose a collaborative effort between IllinoisRocstar LLC and the University of Illinois to develop validated computional tools to assess flow separation in advanced weapon systems. The initial application of the simulation system will be an aft-end jet thruster in a supersonic regime. High-fidelity, unsteady, and three-dimensional simulations will be conducted using the proprietary framework ...

  5. Non-Contact Sensor Technology to Locate Electromagnetic Grids in Ceramics

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: A10151

    Electromagnetic structures buried in optical ceramic domes may be accurately located using an electromagnetic sensor and detection technology. A preliminary experiment demonstrated this claim but an investigation into electromagnetic properties that can vary as a result of manufacturing tolerance is required. Similar off-the-shelf technologies will be prone to error caused by these property variat ...

  6. Unsteady Airfoil Design Optimization with Application to Dynamic Stall

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: A11002

    This proposal seeks to develop a practical and economical design tool, first in two dimensions, and subsequently in three-dimensions, for optimizing helicopter rotor configurations for dynamic stall alleviation. The approach will consist of defining a target unsteady load pro file for a pitching airfoil in two dimensions or three dimensional rotor con figuration and modifying the shape of the airf ...

  7. Plasmonic Nanosensors for Chemical Warfare Agents

    SBC: MKS Technology            Topic: A11019

    A powerful team of researchers from Northwestern University and MKS Technology has been assembled to develop a portable ultratrace level sensitive sensor for chemical warfare agents. The SERS technology will be developed and evaluated at Northwestern University while the materials and portable instrumentation will be developed and manufactured at MKS Technology. Nanoparticles tuned to a specific ...

  8. Passive Infrared Detection of Liquids on Surfaces

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A11044

    Rapid detection of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) in the field can provide critical contamination avoidance and reconnaissance. CWAs pose a serious threat to both civilian and military sectors, and present techniques rely on dangerous collection methods, active measurement through external IR sources, and/or are time-consuming. EPIR proposes to meet this need through the development of a passive s ...

  9. Novel Methods to Monitor Health Status and Clinical Laboratory Data: Portable Acquisition, Assessment, and Reporting

    SBC: Mimosa Acoustics Inc.            Topic: OSD09H26

    Mimosa Acoustics will develop a portable binaural audiological device, based on our successful HearID system. HearID is a clinical system for otoacoustic emission and middle-ear power analysis testing; it is FDA and CE-marked. The new system will have the ability to conduct a variety of audiological tests especially for use in hearing-conservation programs, including: flexible otoacoustic emission ...

  10. High Operating Temperature MWIR FPA Camera Based on M-Structure Type-II Superlattices

    SBC: MP Technologies, LLC            Topic: A09083

    Current high-performance MWIR FPAs require cooling with a cryo-cooler to ~77 K, the cryo-cooler that limits the system lifetime. If the FPA operation temperature can be raised to>170 K without sacrificing performance, then lower power and longer lifetime MWIR cameras should be possible. Type-II InAs/GaSb superlattices represent the most promising material system capable of delivering a camera oper ...
