  1. Vacuum Integrated System for Ion Trapping

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: A15AT009

    We propose to develop a compact, integrated ion trap quantum system for quantum sensor, timekeeping, and computing applications. To do so, we leverage ColdQuantas expertise in miniature ultra-high vacuum (UHV) and atom chip technology and Duke Universitys expertise in microfabricated surface ion traps and quantum information processing experiments. We will produce a manufacturable, commercializa ...

  2. Hybrid Battery/Supercapacitor Energy Storage Device

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A15AT010

    ADA Technologies, Inc. (ADA) and Dr. Massoud Pedram at the University of Southern California (USC) have successfully completed a Phase I STTR effort for the development of a lithium ion (Li-ion)/ supercapacitor hybrid electrical energy storage system (HEESS) to afford pulse power characteristics (projected ~10 kW/kg) in a high energy system (100-150 Wh/kg). The system is enabled via a constant cur ...

  3. An Ultra-Compact Low-Power THz Radio SoC with On-Chip Antenna and Energy Harvesting

    SBC: Digital Analog Integration, Inc.            Topic: A15AT005

    There is an unmet demand for ultra-low-power, ultra-compact and low-cost radios to address emerging sensing and communication needs for military and commercial applications such as IoT/IoE. To overcome the limitations in existing bulky and power hungry radios, we propose a disruptive solution by integration of a nano-scaled THz transceiver, on-chip antenna, and energy harvesting circuits in a form ...

  4. Advanced Printed Circuit Board Design Methods for Compact Optical Transceiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15AT001

    To meet the U.S. military needs for hardened laser-ranging sensors for munitions applications, a compact, high-repetition-rate, high-pulse-energy laser rangefinder will be developed consisting of a temperature-stabilized avalanche photodiode (APD) receiver, with a few photons equivalent sensitivity, and a miniature diode-pumped microchip laser. An existing integrated circuit design will be updated ...

  5. Using the Conditional Moment Closure Method to Assess the Effects of Turbulence Chemical Kinetics

    SBC: REACTION SYSTEMS, INC            Topic: A16AT001

    The ability to accurately design and predict the performance of combustion-based machinery like gas turbine engines is important in improving their performance, increasing their fuel economy, lowering operating costs, and decreasing pollutant emissions. Almost all of the flows are turbulent in industrial combustion applications, therefore understanding the interaction between turbulence and combu ...

  6. Metamorphic Buffer Layer Growth for Bulk InAs(x)Sb(1-x) LWIR Detectors

    SBC: BerrieHill Research Corporation            Topic: A16AT009

    This proposal describes a comprehensive effort to develop the required epitaxial materials technologies to support the development and commercialization of next generation, epitaxially grown, engineered III-V LWIR detectors that achieve performance equivalent to much higher cost II-VI detectors. Our team proposes a unique and innovative approach which utilizes MOCVD growth of metamorphic buffer la ...

  7. A Tomographic Approach for Nadir-Looking Synthetic Aperture Radar (NadirSAR) Imaging

    SBC: Brilligent Solutions, Inc.            Topic: A16AT011

    The team proposes a 3D SAR algorithm based on the principles of radar tomography, which allows for transmitters and receivers to be arbitrarily located in a 3D volume. Data is collected and the output is a complete true 3D image of the reflectivity scene. The tomographic SAR provides detailed features on both horizontal (e.g., flat terrain) and vertical (e.g., building or canyons). With a proper ...

  8. Monolithic Spin-Torque Microwave Diode Spectrograph

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: A16AT016

    This Phase I Small Business Technology Transfer program will simulate and demonstrate the feasibility of a Spin-torque microwave diode spectrograph for real-time determination and monitoring of incident microwave signals. The microwave detection will be performed by a bandwidth encompassing parallel array of nano-patterned magnetic tunnel junctions (MTJs). When an ac current of microwave frequency ...

  9. Beliefs, Values, Interests and Practices of Identities, Networks, Groups for Planning & Analysis

    SBC: SECURBORATION, INC.            Topic: A16AT013

    The intelligence community still cannot satisfactorily answer critical fundamental preparation, planning, and execution questions about the environment in which US and allied forces operate and the people they seek to persuade. There is a vast amount of information, almost all of it unclassified, which characterizes population identities and interrelationships in terms of beliefs, values, interest ...

  10. Runnable Environment for Plug And Scrape Technology (REPAST)

    SBC: Modus Operandi, Inc.            Topic: A16AT006

    Modus Operandi and IHMC propose a Runnable Environment for Plug and Scrape (P&S) Technology (REPAST) for plugging in to social networks. REPAST consists of a P&S device enabling soldiers to perform mobile data analysis. The innovative device lets users carry and configure analytic tools as they travel between locations. Users plug the device into an existing computer system and resume a personal c ...
