  1. Optimum Control of Induction Generators for Water Current Energy Harnessing

    SBC: Electro Standards Laboratory, Inc.            Topic: 815

    Optimization of generator performance and maximization of output power are difficult to attain in the generation of hydro-power. This is due to the changing water conditions and corresponding changes in the form of available energy. ESL proposes to use self-tuning controls in combination with a suitably chosen and optimized generator driven by hydro-energy and condition it for distributi ...

  2. Efficient Processing Using New Cell Disruption Method

    SBC: ENIGMATICS, INC.            Topic: 815

    The proposed effort is aimed at the development of a new low-cost technique for extracting the fuel precursor components from marine alga cells. The effort is aimed at reducing the total production costs of alga-derived fuels, up to one-half of which may be attributed to the recovery/extraction process alone. Development of advanced processing technologies such as that proposed here is n ...

  3. Photoacoustic Sensor for High-sensitivity Measurement of Water Vapor

    SBC: MASSTECH, INC.            Topic: 824

    We propose to build a compact, rugged airborne laser photoacoustic spectrometric (LPAS) sensor based on a tunable mid-IR diode laser for continuous, real-time measurements of water vapor, and perform field tests to qualify it for dynamic airborne in situ monitoring of upper troposphere water vapor. An innovative diode laser frequency locking technique developed by us will be utilized for tuna ...

  4. Radiation Hardened End-to-End Communication Links

    SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: MDA09029

    ADS proposes to apply the Communication Taxonomy (CommTax) toolkit developed under a previous SBIR contract (current in the final stages of Phase II development). CommTax will be applied to the specific case of of nuclear scintillation in order evaluate how configuration parameters can be adjusted to achieve optimal performance. In addition, we will evaluate CommTax''s underlying technologies for ...

  5. New Estimation and Guidance Algorithms for Use against Maneuvering Targets in Uncertain Environments

    SBC: IST-Rolla            Topic: MDA08004

    This proposal seeks to develop guidance algorithms and estimation schemes to intercept targets when they are boosting or on their ascent trajectory. Effective algorithma to work against such threats need to be robust, efficient and accurate due to the uncertainies in the target burn times and their intent. Furthermore, they could be manuevering. The guidance algorithms to be developed are based on ...

  6. High Performance Infrared Focal Plane Arrays with Advanced Quantum Structures

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA09013

    The goal of this SBIR effort is to develop an alternative technology for a new generation of high-performance type-II superlattice (SL) detectors that are suitable for MDA applications in the spectral region from 7 to 11 um and beyond and that out-perform detectors that are based on existing technology. Type-II systems offer potential advantages over MCT and conventional III-V semiconductor techn ...

  7. Advanced Interceptor Infra-Red Search and Track System (IRSTS) for Missile Defense Applications

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T002

    The Oceanit¡¦s/APL Foveal InfraRed Search and Track (FIRST) prototype is a dual channel cryogenic WFOV optical sensor system. FIRST provides multifaceted support for an airborne IR search and track and uses the unique Multi-target-tracking Optical Sensor-array Technology (MOST) sensor chip, which has been developed at MDA. FIRST supports instantaneous field-of-view up to 90 degrees, with 360 deg ...

  8. Software Defined Wideband DREX Receiver

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA09T003

    To realize next generation missile defense radar systems with a significant improvement in performance requires more cost effective system implementations. Software defined radar (SDR) technologies together with field programmable gate array (FPGA) implementations promise reusable and low cost DREX multichannel receivers in smaller form factors. Real time firmware reconfiguration enables radar mod ...

  9. Reuse Support Tools for Automated Constructino of Software Systems

    SBC: Advanced Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Reuse in software engineering is an exciting concept that has yet to be reliably implemented. The number of program subroutines that are truly generic (and therefore applicable across all applications) is limited. However, there are specific applications that are required by many organizations, albeit with a set of constraints specific to each organization. This project proposes to design a too ...

  10. DIALOG- A Tool for Team Interactive Organizational Learning in the Healthcare Industry

    SBC: Cities, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop DIALOG, an environment for collaborative decision making that will enable health care providers and administrators to model, learn, and reason about their business enterprise. DIALOG will utilize a user-friendly, pen- and gesture-based graphical interface, and will enable "any time/any place" collaboration over shared digital libraries and dynamic "microworld" simulations. ...
