  1. Applications of Computational Command Leadership AI Models (ACCLAIM)

    SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc.            Topic: ST092002

    A military without good leadership is a mob. Identification, preparation, guidance and mentoring of potential leaders are critical functions across all services. Leadership training and support can be substantially improved by refinement of theories and models on what constitutes good leadership, and what enables individual to be effective leaders. DoD needs better models of how leaders learn, ...

  2. High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: ST092003

    A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...

  3. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  4. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  5. An automated and programmable microfluidic platform for combinatorial gene assembly and biosynthesis applications

    SBC: HJ Science & Technology, Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    HJ Science & Technology (HJS & T) and the Joint BioEnergy Institute (JBEI) propose to develop an automated, software-controlled, programmable, low-cost, and compact platform capable of running rapid and complex bioengineering processes and optimization of new biomanufacturing systems. Our approach combines the microfluidic automation technology of HJS & T with the novel synthetic biology technolo ...

  6. Automated Approaches to Cellular Engineering and Biomanufacturing

    SBC: Covitect Inc.            Topic: ST12B003

    Genome-scale predictable cellular design and engineering of biomanufacturing systems is the overarching a goal of DARPA's Living Foundry thrust and, if realized, will enable rapid engineering of living biosystems for a broad range of applications in biotechnology and pharmacology. However, constructing living cells with designed genome is not fully automated and is severely limited by inhere ...

  7. Forecasting Dynamic Group Behavior in Social Media

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: ST12B002

    This proposal is to develop a new system for Recognition of Communities and Heterogeneous Analysis of Group Interactions and Dynamics (RC-HAGID) for Social Media Forecasting. Social media enables individuals and groups to quickly coordinate, recruit and direct people to take action in support of a particular objective. This includes terrorist groups and criminal organizations. Accordingly, for ...

  8. Generation and amplification of gravitational waves for military communications

    SBC: SLS, LLC            Topic: ST13A003

    We propose a gravitational-radiation military communications system which is based on quantum-mechanical parametric amplifiers, oscillators, and transducers. In the transmitter at a remote site A, a parametric amplifier using a Planck-mass-scale, moving s

  9. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion has the potential to significantly improve the specific fuel consumption for gas turbine engines by realizing a pressure rise through the combustor as opposed to a pressure drop. One drawback to this form of combustion is the cycl

  10. Modeling and Optimizing Turbines for Unsteady Flow

    SBC: Hypercomp, Inc.            Topic: ST13A005

    Pressure gain combustion (PGC) offers means to a more efficient energy use in propulsion and power generation devices. Integrating PGC concepts in gas turbine engines often results in highly unsteady flow conditions at turbine inlet. Further, the backpres
