  1. COTS MMW Radar for Tracking Persons within a Security Perimeter

    SBC: PSQUAREDT LLC            Topic: HSB0121005

    The implications of the proposed investigations are that radar systems already implemented for the automotive industry can be exploited, adapted and optimized for this application. These radar systems are inexpensive, of small size, employ advanced processing techniques which allow the tracking of threat targets, transmit low average power (10 milliwatts) and are proven to be people safe. We will ...

  2. A Novel Fractionation and Concentration System for Improved Biological Detection

    SBC: InnovaPrep, LLC            Topic: HSB0111002

    Detection of bioaerosols is a cornerstone in the protection of our nation from bioterrorist and pandemic events. Rapid bioaerosol detection systems have advanced dramatically in recent years, but the lack of integratable automated sample preparation for these systems remains a major deficiency. Three significant issues are (a) a lack of an interface between large environmental samples and sample p ...

  3. Formalism for Millimeter-wave Modeling of RADAR Cross Sections

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT002

    In this STTR project, we propose a novel computational technology for analyzing millimeter and submillimeter wave scattering from complex and electromagnetically extended objects and environments. The crux of our formalism lies in a technique for rapidly calculating and coherently adding fields produced by different scatterer constituents, ranging from conducting flat and rough surfaces to penetra ...

  4. Development of Low Temperature Ultracapacitor

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: A12aT010

    The objective of this Phase 1 effort is to develop an asymmetric supercapacitor (ASC) that provides>10 Wh/kg energy density and a high power density, and maintains this performance down to -55 degrees C. Yardney Technical Products (YTP), a recognized specialty high energy battery manufacturer in Pawcatuck, CT in collaboration with the Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) proposes to design, develop and ...

  5. Nondestructive Concrete Characterization System

    SBC: Troxler Electronic Laboratories            Topic: A12aT013

    Currently nuclear-based gauges are the most widely used equipment in the construction industry to measure moisture and density of pavement materials. Such measurements are very accurate, rapid, and non-destructive. Attempts to replace these nuclear methods by non-nuclear methods have shown strong limitations. For this project, we propose to integrate nuclear and seismic technologies to measure t ...

  6. High Performance, Cost Effective, Planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) Gas Sensors on InAs and InN

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT014

    We plan to implement a planar Molecularly Controlled Semiconductor Resistor (MOCSER) gas sensor on both InAs and InN platforms for the ppt-ppm detection of NOx and H2O. Kyma Technologies and Duke University will leverage Duke"s leading MOCSER based NOx sensor technology which uses surface functionalization of InAs with hemin (chloroprotoporphyrin IX iron(III)) to create a strong affinity for NOx. ...

  7. High Quality, Low Cost, and High Purity AlGaN Epitaxy with Reduced Surface Dislocation Density

    SBC: KYMA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A12aT019

    Aluminum Gallium Nitride (AlGaN) has broad dual use applications for power transistors, high frequency transistors, high power Schottky barrier diodes, and solar-blind detectors, as well as ultra-violet laser diodes and ultra-violet light emitting diodes. This unique material system spans the capabilities that lie between Gallium Nitride (GaN) and Aluminum Nitride (AlN), enabling custom tailored p ...

  8. Landmark Navigation for Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: MOBILE INTELLIGENCE CORP.            Topic: A12aT030

    Mobile Intelligence Corporation (MIC) and Wayne State University propose a virtual teleoperation and visual landmark navigation system for UGV teleoperation in buildings, tunnels and caves. The challenge is search and navigation in complex structures with sparse visual cues, high-latency low-bandwidth communications, UGVs with low-cost vision sensors, and only intermittent static 2D visual feedba ...

  9. High-Quality AlGaN Epitaxial Films on GaN and AlN Substrates

    SBC: Adroit Materials            Topic: A12aT019

    The objective of proposed work is to demonstrate the feasibility of obtaining AlGaN films of any composition with dislocation densities below 1x106 cm-2 on native nitride substrates either by sustaining a pseudomorphic state or by reducing the number of threading dislocations by specific stress relieving schemes at the interfaces or within the thickness of the layers.

  10. Fuel Flexible Reformer

    SBC: Precision Combustion, Inc.            Topic: OSD12EP1

    Precision Combustion, Inc. (PCI) proposes to develop an ultra-compact, fuel-flexible reformer, including balance-of-plant components, designed for operation with fuel cell stacks for 300 We portable power generator systems. The reformer technology will be based upon our novel proprietary high mass and heat transfer catalytic elements, which were demonstrated to be superior (i.e., more durable, hig ...
