  1. Chip-Scale Photonics for Wide Temperature and High-Speed Optical Interconnects

    SBC: ULTRA COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: A12aT008

    This program will create 40 Gbps VCSEL-based micro-transceiver (uTRX) components that operate reliably over the standard military temperature range of -55°C to 125°C in Army environments. uTRXs are low-cost, compact components that can be assembled into the PCB in close proximity to high-performance ASICs using conventional solder-reflow"pick-and-place"assembly. The small PCB footprint and sol ...

  2. Inferring Social and Psychological Meaning in Social Media

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A12aT009

    The rapid ascent and adoption of social media as the dominant form of communication has led to significant analysis challenges. In particular, there is a gap in theoretically informed methods to analyze data mined and collected from social media. One primary cause of this gap is the lack of fusing structural sources of information (e.g. social network topology) with non-structural sources (message ...

  3. Narrowband Perfect Absorber for Infrared Sensing

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: A12aT023

    SRICO proposes to combine metamaterial narrowband absorbers and SRICO-proprietary thin film lithium tantalate (TFLT) pyroelectric thermal detectors to produce ultra low cost, size, weight and power (SWaP) room temperature stand-off chemical sensors. Metamaterial narrowband absorber elements will be integrated into the TFLT pyroelectric detector process to provide conversion of radiation to heat, w ...

  4. Preserving Navigation Access for the War Fighter Development of an Acoustic Marine Life Watch System to Support Corps Channel Maintenance and Enhanc

    SBC: Tenera Environmental            Topic: A12aT025

    The goal of the Phase I project is to develop a COTS system into a modular unit for detection, tracking and classification of large marine organisms such as manatees and turtles. The Kongsberg Mesotech M3 Sonar is a 500 kHz multibeam that can resolve objects as far as 150 m. This compact system has been tested to detect Florida manatees by Dr. Kevin Boswell and will be used by well qualified marin ...

  5. Naturalistic Neurocognitive Assessment Using Mobile Gaming Platforms

    SBC: Vista Partners LLC            Topic: A12aT029

    The neurocognitive health of U.S. service members plays a vital role in the defense of the United States. It is critical to a service member"s effectiveness, to force readiness, and it is a key component of a service member"s successful reintegration into family life and society following deployment. Increased rates of mild traumatic brain injury (mTBI) and psychological health problems experien ...

  6. Improve pyrotechnic smoke formulations that produce low flame

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT026

    The objective of this research is to develop materials that replace the current generation of visible smoke formulations used by the U.S. military. In particular the materials must produce low or no flame so that they don't present a fire hazard, have relatively low toxicity, and are efficient. The efficiency is defined in a figure of merit that combines fill factor, yield factor, extinctio ...

  7. Plasmonic MEMS Sensor Array

    SBC: Five Stones Research Corporation            Topic: A10aT002

    Sensor development researchers and engineers have perpetually sought novel methods to reduce sensor size and improve performance. Continued miniaturization of sensors through micromachining has enabled novel applications and introduced new paradigms for engineered systems to interact with the world. The challenge has always been to improve performance while continually reducing size. In the curren ...

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

    SBC: Performance Lasers            Topic: A11aT009

    Current of the shelf commercial laser systems that are used for LIBS and other optical detection techniques are too costly, large, low performance and unreliable. The reason for it is because commercial laser systems are designed for continuous operation. Only one or few laser pulses are needed for detection, therefore, low cost burst lasers with the proper parameters are needed. Burst mode operat ...

  9. High Fidelity Obscurant Modeling for Sensor Simulations

    SBC: Simulation Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A11aT004

    A technique that enables new methods of obscurant modeling with faster rendering while maintaining or improving physical fidelity is proposed. The proposed technique not only exhibits the statistics of voxel based obscurants, but matches real-world data as well. The main objective from Phase II efforts will be a further refinement of the flow field and particle technique of generating physically c ...

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

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: A11aT015

    Recent times have witnessed enormous advances in high fidelity modeling of electromagnetic (EM) phenomena in the time-domain. To make such simulations tractable, the computational region must be truncated in a manner allowing outgoing waves to leave with minimal reflection from the boundary. HyPerComp Inc., in collaboration with Prof. Thomas Hagstrom of the Southern Methodist University (Dallas, T ...
