  1. Silicon based Millimeter-Wave (MMW) sparse array radiometer receiver for photonic processing

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: SB113003

    The proposed innovation adopts a hybrid electro-optical approach, which combines the best of the electronic and photonic approaches to achieve high sensitivity, high inter-channel stability, and large-scale integration for an integrated mm-wave receiver. Silicon photonics provides the ideal platform for this as it enables the up-conversion of the mm-wave signals from each pixel to telecommunicatio ...

  2. Controlled Burn Using Nanoinfused Insensitive Solid Propellant

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB113004

    Future missile systems will need to be faster, more precise, impact a larger theater of operation, and exhibit improved safety for friendly combatants. There are many technology elements that contribute to the desired level of control. In solid propellants, nanoparticle additives theoretically offer attractive improvements to specific impulse, burn rate, and combustion efficiency which can transla ...

  3. Controlling Antibiotic Resistant or Highly Virulent Pathogens Through Plasmid Curing

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: SB122001

    Group II introns are a novel class of catalytic RNA molecule that are capable of site specific insertion into DNA targets. This property can be reengineered to facilitate site specific DNA integration into a wide range of DNA targets. We intend to exploit this property of group II introns to effect plasmid curing by disrupting critical sequences or proteins responsible for plasmid replication/sp ...

  4. Design of Acoustic Metamaterials for Passive Hearing Protector

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB103006

    We propose to develop new acoustic metamaterials (AMMs) using locally resonant regimented structures, suitable for application in Hearing Protector Devices (HPDs), that will act as frequency selective acoustic filter for hearing protection. Our computational simulations conducted in phase I project have demonstrated that significant acoustic attenuation can be achieved in desired frequency ranges ...

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

    SBC: DEFENSE ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF081069

    Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) across the services need the capability to operate routinely in civil airspace like manned aircraft. Currently, the lack of Sense and Avoid (SAA) technology is the largest obstacle to realizing this capability. The SAA system should autonomously sense air traffic and direct the RPA to avoid the traffic in the same manner as a human pilot. The preceding program de ...

  7. VIRTUAL PROTOTYPING TOOLS FOR SEMICONDUCTOR FABRICATION EQUIPMENT

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    THE EXISTING METHODOLOGY OF DESIGN AND FABRICATION OF SEMICONDUCTOR MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT IS AN EXPENSIVE AND TIME CONSUMING PROCESS. TO KEEP PACE WITH THE RAPIDLY ADVANCING SEMICONDUCTOR INDUSTRY, IT IS NECESSARY TO DEVELOP A COMPUTER BASED ENVIRONMENT TO QUICKLY SIMULATE THE FEATURES OF THE MANUFACTURING EQUIPMENT BEFORE IT IS TURNED INTO A PHYSICAL PROTOTYPE. APART FROM ACHIEVING CONSIDERABLE ...

  8. ULTRA LOW COST ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM

    SBC: Electronic Concepts &            Topic: N/A

    PRESENT TURBOJET ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEMS, WHICH ARE COMPRISED OF: CONTROLLER, FUEL METERING DEVICE, SENSORS, CONNECTORS, AND HARNESSES ARE THE SINGLE MOST EXPENSIVE SUBSYSTEM ON EXPENDABLE TURBOJET ENGINES. THE SIZE AND COST OF EXPENDABLE TURBOJET ENGINES HAS STEADILY DECREASED. HOWEVER, THE ENGINE CONTROL SYSTEM COST HAS RE MAINED RELATIVELY CONSTANT. ELECTRONIC CONCEPTS PROPOSES TO DEMONSTRATE TH ...

  9. Fault Tolerant High Speed Network Services

    SBC: Intellect Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The predominant concern of evolving high-speed network architectures is fault tolerance. High-speed networks will expereince a variety of faults, such as link or node failures, excessive buffer overflow due to faulty flow and congestion control mechanisms, and partial failure of the switching fabric. The main goal of this research is to increase the availability of essential network services witho ...

  10. HIGH SPEED IMAGE CAPTURE OF THE 3-D PEEL POINT GEOMETRY DURING PAYOUT

    SBC: MORGAN RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    AN ACCURATE KNOWLEDGE OF THE MAXIMUM FIBER STRESS OCCURRING DURING PAYOUT IS CRITICAL TO IMPROVE THE RELIABILITY OF CURRENT AND FUTURE DISPENSER DESIGNS FOR FIBER OPTIC GUIDED VEHICLES. THE FIBER DEFORMATIONS OCCURRING AT THE PEEL POINT ARE A DIRECT INDICATION OF THE MAXIMUM FIBER STRESSES UNDER NORMAL PAYOUT CONDITIONS. IN ADDITION, THE FIBER DEFORMATIONS AT THE PEEL POINT PROVIDE AN INVALUABLE M ...
