  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. Automatic Causality Determination and Narrative Extraction using the Semantic Inference and Filtering Tool (SIFT)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: A11aT010

    Intelligent Automation Inc. (IAI) is teaming with subject matter expert Prof. Dan Roth from the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign (UIUC) to propose a web based tool to search, filter, and collaboratively work on"document chains"interactively. The proposed Semantic Inference and Filtering Tool (SIFT) will provide an intuitive interface coupled with advanced Natural Language Processing (NL ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. Rugged Automated Training System

    SBC: Strategic Feasibilities, Inc.            Topic: A11aT019

    It is accepted that certain animals have the olfactory and learning ability to be trained in the detection of explosives and other compounds. The possibility of using rats and other small mammals to detect landmines, and potentially IED's is very real. In order to perform the detection task efficiently and effectively, these animals need to be trained, and certified as reliable and accurate. ...

  7. Rugged Automated Training System

    SBC: Coherent Technical Services, Inc.            Topic: A11aT019

    Hostile conflicts leave behind millions of armed landmines in developing countries throughout the globe. Humanitarian demining is hazardous and labor intensive. A promising development in landmine detection is using small, olfactory sensitive animals trained to act as biosensor detectors. But current methods require skilled trainers following strict protocols, and this extensive time and effor ...

  8. Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS)

    SBC: ROBOTIC RESEARCH LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    Robotic Research in partnership with Jet Propulsion Laboratory (JPL) proposes to develop the Mobility Optimization via Enhanced Robotic Sensing (MOVERS) system for any two-wheeled, four-wheeled or tracked robotic platform to autonomously perform hazardous terrain detection and classification and adjust its driving control strategy to safely negotiate hazardous terrain. Our goal is to develop auto ...

  9. A Novel, Flexible, and Comprehensive System for Mission Prioritized Lossless Data Compression

    SBC: Signal Processing, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT10

    ABSTRACT: The test and evaluation (T & E) mission in complex test facilities results in large amounts of data. Moreover, the data may have different characteristics, including images from particle image velocimetry data, air flow data, etc. Finally, some of the data may come from a network of similar sensors. We propose a novel, flexible, and comprehensive system for mission prioritized lossless ...
