  1. LOW-COST, PORTABLE AND AUTOMATED SMOKE POINT TESTING APPARATUS FOR MILITARY APPLICATIONS

    SBC: Innosense Llc            Topic: A10AT010

    Fuels for Army use undergo rigorous analysis to determine many chemical and physical properties before they are used in Army vehicles. The property of fuels to produce smoke or soot is one such specification used to determine fuel quality. Smoke production of a diffusion flame produced by a kerosene fuel can be correlated to the chemical composition of the fuel. Unfortunately, the standard used to ...

  2. Plasmonic Nanoantennas for Single-Molecule, Surface-Enhanced-Raman-Scattering Based Sensing

    SBC: L. C. PEGASUS CORP.            Topic: A10AT014

    This proposed project is concerned with the design, fabrication, and demonstration of a new class of plasmonic nanostructures for single molecule surface-enhanced Raman spectroscopy for biological and chemical sensing applications. A complete design of the plasmonic nanostructures with large local field enhancements (E/E0>100) will be formulated, and the fabrication procedures will be developed fo ...

  3. GHz-range photon counting with single-photon avalanche photodiodes

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: A11aT008

    In the past few years, there have been promising demonstrations of new approaches to short-gate (i.e., sub-nanosecond) operation of single-photon avalanche diodes (SPADs) with gating frequencies as high as 2 GHz. However, these demonstrations have had limitations, including operation at just a single fixed frequency, fairly high residual afterpulsing levels, and the lack of industrialization req ...

  4. Compact, Rugged, and Low-Cost Wavelength-Versatile Burst Laser

    SBC: Performance Lasers            Topic: A11aT009

    Very compact, robust, and low cost multi wavelengths burst lasers for standoff CBRNE (Chemical, Biological, Radiological, Nuclear, and Explosive) detection and identification are proposed. Although a single focused laser pulse on target can do the detection, the probability of hitting the right contaminated spot is low. Therefore, scanning a laser pulse train will cover a larger suspected contamin ...

  5. High Risk Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Tool (HRREAT)

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A11aT011

    This proposal is to develop a High Risk Rapid Ethnographic Assessment Tool (HRREAT) that will provide commanders and their staff with a fully-integrated, user-friendly suite of tools for the rapid collection, management, analysis, modeling, and visualization of ethnographic data in denied areas to enhance planning and decision making activities. Ethnographic data has become highly important in ...

  6. MOCVD of High Performance Complex Oxide Films for Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators

    SBC: STRUCTURED MATERIALS INDUSTRIES, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    In this STTR program, Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) and partners will develop high efficiency, switchable RF filters. The technical approach is based on thin films of paraelectric BaxSr1-xTiO3 and SrTiO3, which can show piezoelectric behavior under an applied DC bias. When integrated into resonator structures, these materials can act as both an RF filter and an RF switch. Combinin ...

  7. High Performance Complex Oxide Thin Film Materials to Enable Switchable Film Bulk Acoustic Resonators (FBAR) for Low-Loss Radio Frequency Devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A11aT016

    The proposed project focuses on a new technology that has a built-in switch to turn the filter on and off, and thus is functionally equivalent to a high-selectivity filter and a low-loss switch, where the switch draws no DC power. Agile calls this new invention the Switchable Trimmable Acoustic Resonator (STAR). An array of such filters could implement a very compact and reconfigurable high-sele ...

  8. Thin-Film Multiferroic Heterostructures for Frequency-Agile RF Electronics

    SBC: Aneeve            Topic: A11aT018

    We aim to undertake a Phase I study of multiferroic heterostructure thin film composite materials (CoFeB / PMN-PT) and their applications in high frequency (>10GHz) microwave passive circuit building blocks. In this Phase I investigation, Aneeve Nanotechnologies together with Prof Charles Ahn (Yale University) and Dr. Pedram Khalili (UCLA) will develop multiferroic heterostructure systems to demon ...

  9. Advanced Wavelength Tuners for Chem-Bio Detection Lasers

    SBC: LFK Technology Corp.            Topic: A11aT024

    Active standoff detection of chemical and biological agents with lasers has proven to be very effective. Specific targets include chemical vapors, chemical aerosols, and biological particles. Most notably, the FAL (Frequency Agile Laser) sensor developed by ECBC (Edgewood Chemical Biological Center) has shown capability to detect all of these targets with a single device. Also, optical technique ...

  10. Development of Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI) Phantoms to Enhance the Diagnosis of Moderate Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI)

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT031

    Survival rates for soldiers injured by IED blasts and similar trauma are enhanced by prompt, high-quality medical care. Among the survivors, however, increasing numbers report symptoms of Traumatic Brain Injury (TBI). Mild and moderate TBIs with no skull-penetrating wounds are difficult to detect and diagnose with commonly used diagnostic systems. Diffusion Tensor Imaging (DTI), a subset of Mag ...
