  1. 3-D Digital Image Correlation Based Non-Destructive Testing System for Qualification of Additive Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc.            Topic: NA

    NIST's seeks a high resolution DIC technology for qualification of complex AM parts. To meet this critical need, X-wave Innovations Inc. proposes to develop a 3-Dimentional Digital Image Correlation (3-D DIC) based NDT system. The proposed effort builds upon the success of XII in developing a variety of NDT technologies (including DIC system) for advanced materials evaluation. The success of the p ...

  2. HQ-55 VTOL UAS for Ship Based Operation

    SBC: L3 Latitude, LLC            Topic: 832

    The Hybrid Quadrotor concept, developed by Latitude Engineering, combines the high power density of electric motors and propellers with the high energy density of a piston engine and liquid fuel. Together, each technology enables maximum performance in HQ's two regimes of flight: the electric system is responsible for lift while hovering (high power, short endurance), and the gas engine gives long ...

  3. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Usedfor Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  4. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...

  5. Contaminated Materiel Transfer Case

    SBC: PRODUCTION PRODUCTS MANUFACTURING & SALES CO., INC.            Topic: CBD161006

    With the global reach of our US military and civilian population, the threat of CB warfare, and spread of deadly viruses in the world; it isnecessary to have containment options for large scale transport of hazardous/contaminated materials that meet the strict national,international and US Air Force standards for air transport. Production Products has addressed this need with the development of an ...

  6. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

  7. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System for Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    Our goal in this SBIR project is to develop a lightweight, low-power, inexpensive hyperspectral spectro-polarimetric imaging sensor for wide area standoff detection of chemical agents. The imaging system will employ an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) that operates in the LWIR wavelength range. The sensor will have polarimetric imaging capabilities which, adds a valuable signature feature to im ...

  8. Non-Marine-Based Fishmeal and Fish Oil Replacement Strategies for the Production of Aquaculture Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: N/A

    If aquaculture is to become an increasing contributor to the food supply, it is critical that aquaculture feeds become less reliant on marine-derived fishmeal and fish oil as the preferred source of essential proteins and lipids. Not only is the wild fishery from which these products are extracted at maximum sustainable levels of harvest, but also there is increasing concern that these feedstocks ...

  9. Natural and Sustainable Alternatives for Fish Meal/Oil Usage in Atlantic Salmon Feeds

    SBC: ABN            Topic: 8110

    The aquaculture industry currently consumes 70 percent of the global production of fish oil and 35 percent of total fishmeal. The salmon and trout fish farming sectors alone consume over one half of the world¿s fish oil. And if fish farming continues to grow at the current rate, then by 2010 the aquaculture industry could well be using all of the world¿s fish oil and half of its fishmeal. The ...

  10. Low Noise, High Efficiency InGaAs/InAIAs Avalanche Photodiodes for Photon Counting at 1.55 Micrometer Wavelength

    SBC: COVEGA, INC.            Topic: 8312

    A large area (diameter > 200 micrometer) mesa type InGaAs/InAlAs avalanche photodiode with a novel surface passivation technique is proposed for photon counting at eye-safe wavelength of > 1.4 micrometer. The device is expected to exhibit high detection efficiency, low dark count rate with minimal afterpusling, due to the small k factor of InAlAs gain material and the unique mesa sidewall treatmen ...
