  1. A Priori Error-Controlled Simulations of Electromagnetic Phenomena for HPC

    SBC: HYPERCOMP, INC.            Topic: A11aT015

    Recently significant advances have been made in the high fidelity modeling of electromagnetic phenomena in complex geometries in the time-domain. To make high fidelity simulations of scattering and radiation tractable, the computational region must be truncated in a manner allowing outgoing waves to leave with minimal reflection from the boundary. We, HyPerComp in collaboration with Profess ...

  2. A Real-Time, Non-Invasive Monitoring System of Combat Casualties for Early Detection of Hemorrhagic Shock During Transport and Higher Echelon Medical

    SBC: FLASHBACK TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: A09AT027

    On the battlefield, medics must quickly determine injury severity, treat the greatest threats to life, diagnose hemorrhage and establish a triage order. The objective of this research project is to apply our active, long-term learning technology to the task of modeling and prediction of central blood volume parameters from extremely large, and variable physiological datasets. In Phase I, we appl ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Broadband Obscurants for Visible and IR Countermeasures

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: A08T025

    Successful military operations require dominant control of the electromagnetic spectrum in the battlefield. Smokes and obscurants are becoming increasingly important to block the function of enemy optical tracking systems and sensors during day and night operations. Fielded munitions are optimized for either the visible or infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. A single device that b ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. High Performance Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Pranalytica, Inc.            Topic: A09AT007

    Currently there is wide variation in QCL performance at different wavelengths. Performance of new generation of QCLs recently demonstrated at wavelengths near 4.6 & #956;m exceeds the performance of legacy QCLs at other wavelengths by a wide margin. Much of the progress at 4.6 & #956;m was made under DARPA"s EMIL program. The objective of the present Phase II proposal is to experimentally valid ...

  10. 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 ...
