  1. Production Methods and Software for NIST Calibration Phantoms

    SBC: SIGMA K CORP            Topic: N/A

    Magnetic Resonance Imaging data needs to be calibrated using a universal standard. NIST and the ISMRM SQRM committee have developed the NIST/NIST MR phantom. The group had two phantoms manufactured to their specifications and these phantoms have been imaged at numerous imaging facilities. Sigma-K now proposes to develop a complete manufacturing method that will produce 50 MRI phantoms. These phant ...

  2. Anion Exchange Resin for Chirality-based Separation of Single-wall Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Sepax Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Sepax Technologies, Inc. has identified a new type of anoin-exchange resin which separates single-wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) with >80% recovery yield and resolves in a single pass the chiral tubes of (6,5) well from commercial SWCNT starting materials by Chromatography. Improvement and scale up of the targeted resin production will facilitate the separation of chiral nanotubes for the academic ...

  3. Novel Pre-Fire Powering and Data Transfer Links for Munitions

    SBC: OMNITEK PARTNERS LLC            Topic: A12008

    The objective of this project is to investigate the feasibility of several novel wireless methods and related devices for pre-fire powering of munitions capacitors and/or super-capacitors and establishing one-way or two-way data transfer link to load firing information as well as health monitoring and the like. In the novel concepts being proposed the means of transferring power into the munitions ...

  4. Mitigation of Range/Doppler Straddle for Radar Coherent Processing

    SBC: Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc.            Topic: A12032

    The objective of this effort is to develop track-before-detect algorithms to provide greater signal processing gain for pulsed-Doppler radars. We will develop signal processing techniques to be used in next-generation ground-based radars to detect and track objects of interest. We will perform a feasibility analysis of the proposed technique on high-speed, low RCS targets. In addition, we will ...

  5. Electroless Plating of Indium Bumps for High Operating Temperatures (HOT) Mid-Wave (MW) Sensors

    SBC: EnerGaia            Topic: A12039

    Advanced hybrid packaging for MWIR FPA devices has considerable challenges in terms of increasing pixel density. These processes are based on Indium bumping; however, the current approach to deposition has scaling and cost issues. EnerGaia has a technology based on acoustic electroless deposition which can meet these requirements. Ultrasonic energy coupled to a plating solution has been proven ...

  6. Use of Electromagnetic Impedance Spectroscopy (EIS) and Tomography (EIT) for the Detection and Identification of Buried Explosive Hazards

    SBC: TransTech Systems, Incorporated            Topic: A12040

    The detection of buried explosive hazards (BEH) remains a critical problem. Current combined sensing modalities, like electromagnetic induction and ground-penetrating radar, have demonstrated BEH detection capabilities, but are not optimal. TransTech proposes a novel combination of electromagnetic impedance spectroscopy and tomography for BEH detection and identification. Previous attempts to us ...

  7. Improved Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) Metaferrite Based Antenna for SATCOM

    SBC: Minerva Systems & Technologies, LLC            Topic: A12045

    The objective of this proposal is to design and develop UHF Satellite communications (SATCOM) circular polarized antennas using advanced metamaterials to achieve high gain performance with smaller dimensions (i.e., size and weight). The metamaterials we propose belong to a class of magneto-dielectric materials. The advantages and disadvantages of dielectric loading applied to electromagnetic devi ...

  8. Advanced Small, Lightweight Multi-Fueled 1,000- 1,500 W Variable Speed Load Following Man-Portable Power Unit

    SBC: SPECTRUM RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: A12048

    The U.S. Army has long recognized the benefits of load following gensets in terms of substantially reducing both fuel consumption and acoustic noise signature. The overall goal for the proposed effort is to develop an advanced 1-man portable, multi-fueled, electric power unit with load following capability and selectable 120 VAC, 28 VDC, and battery charger outputs. The 1500W size range is parti ...

  9. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  10. Innovative Rugged High Power RF Sources for Compact RF Warheads

    SBC: RADIANCE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12062

    This work describes an innovative approach to the development of a"frozen wave RF source"with only one active component an ultrafast spark switch. This technique represents a major improvement over existing state of the art by eliminating the need for multiple light activated custom solid state switches and the associated laser trigger generator. The key item, an ultra-fast spark switch must be d ...
