  1. Versatile Micro/Nano-mechanical Load Frame For In Situ Studies

    SBC: Psylotech LLC            Topic: A09055

    Small scale mechanical testing is often a bottleneck in micro and nanocomposite materials development. The proposed Psylotech system is a miniature universal test system that accommodates rigid materials and soft materials, such as biological tissues and rubber in the form of uniaxially loaded samples. The Psylotech nano/micro/milli Test System (nTS) is the evolution and integration of systems dev ...

  3. Fatigue Resistant Martensitic Steel for Rotorcraft Drive Train Components

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: A10035

    In Phase I of this SBIR program, QuesTek successfully demonstrated a novel thermomechanical processing technique to enhance the bending fatigue resistance of Ferrium C64 steel. A systems-engineering approach was followed to identify key microstructure attributes (e.g., nonmetallic inclusions) that control the mean and minimum fatigue resistance of the aforementioned steel. Through carefully devise ...

  4. 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- ...

  5. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics and the University of Arizona will develop a passive multi-band compressive sensor for imaging and object recognition applications. The Army has identified a need for multi-band imagery for intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance missions among others. Multi-band systems offer enhanced discrimination capability and the ability to perform in adverse conditions (at night, smo ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. Powder Fluidization Grenade (PFG) for Particulate Obscurant Dissemination

    SBC: HY-TEK MANUFACTURING CO., INC.            Topic: A11045

    The thrust of Hy-Tek Mfg. Co. Inc.'s PFG concept involves in-canister fluidization of dry PO powder using compressed gas possibly enhanced by mechanical vibration followed by dissemination of the suspended powder from the canister by means of gas entrainment via a venture tube, nozzle or other canister orifice. Suitable fluidization of PO powder will require replenishing a stable suspension o ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 50- 100 Watt Wind Energy Harvesting in Light Tactical Applications

    SBC: Pine Ridge Products LLC            Topic: A09092

    Pine Ridge Products, LLC will introduce a tactical wind turbine that is highly efficient, robust, easy to use, maintain and transport. The Army is requesting a renewable energy system to reduce the amount of fuel used for small power loads. A vehicle mounted wind turbine system would improve self sufficiency on site by decreasing the need for fossil fuels. This will increase reliability of communi ...
