  1. Nanotechnology-Enhanced Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    Chlorine gas was first used as a weapon during World War I and has reemerged as a threat in Iraq compounding the dangers from existing improvised explosive devices. One of the significant challenges with preventing attacks that involve toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) like chlorine, ammonia is that they have genuine civilian uses for water treatment, in refrigeration systems, and others, that m ...

  2. Novel Nanofluidics-Based Sensor System

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB062001

    We propose to develop a nanofluidics-based biosensor system for detection and quantitation of biological threat agents. The proposed system will harness the potential of recently discovered nanofluidic phenomena, not possible in microfluidic/capillary systems, to enhance rapid and sensitive sample preparation and detection. Specifically, we will develop a nanofluidics-based device to separate and ...

  3. Passively Adaptive Wing Structures for High Altitude, Long Endurance UAVs

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB072044

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) proposes to develop and demonstrate a passive, adaptive structure technology that will permit a HALE UAV wing structure to respond to gust loads by temporarily modifying its shape to reduce the gust load effects and maximum load requirements driving structural sizing. This response is a “step-wise” response that will only occur when a specific loading con ...

  4. Design Methodology for Attaching Morphing Components

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: ST061005

    Cornerstone Research Group Inc. (CRG) and the University of Colorado at Boulder (CU-Boulder) will continue to establish the understanding of materials and mechanical interaction necessary to develop modeling capabilities, interface design, and fabrication processes for fastening morphing skins. During Phase I, CRG and CU-Boulder were successful in constitutive model development and prediction of m ...

  5. CogniBrief; A Structured Presentation Tool for Rapid Knowledge Transfer

    SBC: DEAL CORP            Topic: SB072032

    The poor representation and communication of ideas impedes progress and can result in direct threats to life and property. It is well known that tools impact the way in which work is performed. Popular presentation support tools lend themselves to poor conceptualization and superficial analysis. They offer a poor means of transmitting knowledge even when the underlying analysis is solid and the ...

  6. Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DEFENSE ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF081069

    There is no Sense and Avoid (SAA) solution for small UAS such as Scan Eagle, Raven, or BATMAV, which represent by far the greatest number of UAS. Equipping small UAS with SAA capability is problematic, mainly due to the very small size, weight and power (SWAP) resources available. The SAA system must compete for critical SWAP resources with fuel and payload sensors. Small, low-power EO and sens ...

  7. Optically Reflecting Flexible Membrane

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072036

    Military imaging optics, such as rifle scopes, spotter scopes, and optics found on unmanned vehicles could be substantially better if the mechanical movement of optics for focus and zoom could be eliminated, without creating new problems associated with the rugged and harsh environment. The technology of liquid lenses has surfaced as a possible solution, but these lenses have problems with enviro ...

  8. Metamaterials Lens

    SBC: DMS Technology, Inc.            Topic: SB072035

    We provide a novel approach to realizing negative index lenses and lenslet arrays at optical frequencies using a naturally occurring material such as cis-vitamin A, a constituent in some commercially available cod-liver oils. This form of vitamin A has been recently found in the eyes of lobsters and hypothesized to be responsible for negative index lensing in their superposition eyes. The propos ...

  9. Optically Reflecting Flexible Membrane

    SBC: LUMA SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB072036

    Luma Systems proposes the development of a novel autofocus and zoom technology for telescopic imaging systems. The proposed technology is designed to address the increasing need in military optical and imaging systems for a rapid autofocus and zoom capability spanning the visible and IR wavelengths from 0.4 μm to 5.5 μm. Applications include riflescopes, spotter scopes, imaging for missiles, UA ...

  10. Sparse Array Applications for Small Satellites

    SBC: TIME DOMAIN CORP.            Topic: SB062020

    The purpose of this program is to provide a technology that enables the deployment of constellations of satellite based, coherent, RF sparse arrays. Such sparse arrays would have higher resolution than conventional approaches and would provide superior remote sensing capabilities at a fraction of today’s cost. The key enabling mechanisms are 1) the ability to accurately measure the distance be ...
