  1. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  2. Compressive 3D Infrared Imaging

    SBC: DetectIR, Inc            Topic: A15AT007

    DetectIR Technologies, along with Michigan State University, proposes to develop a 3D IR imaging system by integrating carbon nanotube (CNT) based IR detector technology with a compressive sensing method. This proposed effort will produce a portable, non-cryogenic-cooled 3D IR camera that will provide quality 3D images at video frame rates. The proposed camera design will solve several issues ...

  3. Configurable Adversary Response Prediction (CARP)

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT14

    The Air Force has an interest in a run-time mission pilots assistant that will support tactical pilots in the rapid assessment of information quality and reconsideration of decisions that the information supports. Such a capability requires an efficient, predictive knowledge base that enables rapid situation assessment and decision support. In Phase II, we will develop the CARP (Configurable Adver ...

  4. Development of Adaptive Closure Models for Large Eddy Simulations of Lean Blow-Out Conditions

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF16AT14

    Next-generation turbulent combustion models must enable accurate prediction of lean blow-out and flashback for complex geometries, fuels and operating conditions relevant to the Air Force. Improved models are needed to better predict kinetically and hydr...

  5. Durable Low Adhesion Anti-Icing and Ice-Phobic Surfaces

    SBC: HygraTek LLC            Topic: N14AT013

    Ice accretion is a significant problem for naval ship superstructures, decks, equipment and vehicles on board naval ships. In our work we show that by tailoring the crosslink density of different elastomeric coatings, and by allowing for interfacial slippage, it is possible to systematically design coatings with extremely low ice-adhesion (ice < 1 kPa). The use of interfacial slippage as opposed t ...

  6. Energy Harvesting Fabric

    SBC: Streamline Automation, LLC            Topic: A15AT017

    A human produces more than 100 Watts of waste heat during normal activity. If a fraction of this heat energy can be harvested it can replace the stored chemical energy in one or more of the batteries typically carried by soldiers in the field. The current generation batteries, such as the BB2590 are bulky and rigid. The PowerFelt material developed by Wake Forest University is ideally suited for h ...

  7. High Fidelity Computational Models for Aggregated Tissue Interaction in Surgical Simulations

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHP16A001

    Surgical simulations aiming to support surgeon practices and medical education have attracted enormous research effort over the last two decades. However, the physical reality, especially on simulating aggregated tissue interaction, is still unsatisfactory. In this proposed work, an open source surgery simulation framework, SoFMIS, will be utilized and enhanced with tissue interaction models to a ...

  8. High-Power, Monolithic THz Sources via Difference Frequency Generation in Phase-Locked Arrays of Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: A15AT003

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) Fabricate and test ridge-guide, quantum-cascade-laser (QCL) devices employing a broad-gain-spectrum active-region design and suitable for incorporation in the designed high-index-contrast (HC) photonic-crystal (PC) THz, difference-frequency-generation (DFG) QCLs ; 2) Fabricate and test large-aperture HC-PC QCL devices suitable for THz generation vi ...

  9. Impact of Hypersonic Flight Environment on Electro-Optic/Infrared (EO/IR) Sensors

    SBC: Analysis and Applications Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the visible to mid-wave IR. EO/IR sensors have been very successful for terrain imaging from subsonic aircraft and from satellites. Imaging using these platforms has been studied extensively. EO/IR sensors can provide high spatial resolution images using multiple frequency bands ranging from the v ...

  10. Improved MWIR LED Arrays on GaAs and Si Substrates for Scene Projectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: AF16AT22

    The state-of-the-art in infrared scene projection uses micro-machined resistor arrays. While a proven technology, these arrays are limited in frame-rate and dynamic range, and can be prohibitively costly as array size increases. Alternative technologies ...
