  1. Low Cost OPAM for sea mine detection

    SBC: QUSPIN INC.            Topic: N17AT013

    Optically pumped magnetometers provide very high performance but they cost tens of thousands of dollars, and they are large and power hungry. Recently we successfully developed and commercialized laser pumped magnetometers with size, weight and power consumption that is an order of magnitude below current state-of-the-art without sacrificing performance. In this project, the focus will be on produ ...

  2. Super-Efficient Mid-Infrared Quantum Cascade Lasers with Continuous-Wave Wall-Plug Efficiencies in Excess of 40%

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N17AT006

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) perform a comprehensive simulation of 4.6 micron-emitting quantum cascade lasers (QCLs) with suppressed carrier leakage and efficient carrier extraction to design a device with pulsed wall-plug efficiency > 40 %; 2) perform a thermal analysis of 4.6 micron-emitting QCLs to design structures capable of operating with > 40 % continuous-wave (CW) wall ...

  3. SWAT- Scalable W(R)ubber through Advanced Technology

    SBC: EnergyEne Inc.            Topic: ST18C001

    Opportunity: Guayule, a US native plant, is the only alternate rubber crop with an established, mechanized, agronomic system. Problem: Low rubber yields and lack of effective resin and bagasse coproduct valorization, have prevented widespread adoption by American farmers and processors. Rubber is only made when the cytoplasmic monomer pool (isopentenyl-pyrophosphate; IPP) is larger than that requi ...

  4. Phase-Change Materials for Tunable Infrared Devices

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: N17AT020

    There is a critical need for the development of dynamic IR materials that can be used to form device level components and systems necessary for mid to long wave infrared (3-12 m) applications. To meet these future needs, the team proposes to develop tunable optical elements based around metamaterial surfaces or metasurfaces. Metasurfaces are a class of engineered materials where arrays of sub-wave ...

  5. Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping (WALAM-ABS)

    SBC: MV Innovative Technologies LLC (DBA: Opt            Topic: N17AT030

    Optonicus proposes development of the WALAM-ABS (Wide-Area Laser Additive Manufacturing in Metals with Adaptive Beam Shaping) laser additive manufacturing (LAM) system. The WALAM-ABS metal additive manufacturing system will solve long-standing drawbacks imposed by current single-point selective laser melting LAM technology through the use of wide-area processing based on proprietary multi-beam fib ...

  6. Physics-based Computationally Efficient Spray Combustion Models for LES of Multiphase Reacting Flows

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: N17AT002

    One important challenge for the reliable prediction of liquid fuel effects on the combustion in aviation combustors and augmentors is the accurate modeling of underlying physical processes, involving the evaporation of fuels, preferential vaporization, scalar mixing and ignition. LES methodologies are required to accurately capture these transient and inherently unsteady combustion processes. In t ...

  7. Assess Stability and Anti-Fragility of Dense Urban Terrains

    SBC: Cordillera Applications Group, Inc.            Topic: ST17C003

    The objective of this proposal is to examine the feasibility of defining and measuring key dimensions of an urban system to include its essential functions and networks, and whether they can be modelled in a computational framework for assessing robustness and resilience of DUTs (and their tipping points) under conditions of volatility and stress. This proposal will conduct a comprehensive review ...

  8. POC Blood Coagulopathy Monitor

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: DHA19A001

    Traumatic injuries account for 30% of all life years lost in the US and is the leading cause of death for people under 46 years of age. Uncontrolled bleeding or hemorrhage constitute 30-40% of trauma related deaths and are considered to be a major cause o

  9. Signature Management Textiles

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: A18BT023

    The prolific nature of Advanced Battlefield and Ground surveillance radar (BSR/GSR) in military markets is driving the need to develop new methods of reducing infantry forces’ radar cross section (RCS) in effort to avoid detection and more freely move throughout the battlespace. One approach to combat the growing threat of BSR/GSR surveillance is through the development of advanced textiles that ...

  10. Soft and Elastomeric Intramuscular Electrode with Therapeutic Delivery Capability

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A13AT019

    Approximately 5-6% of military injuries involve some form of major peripheral nerve injury with little chance of spontaneous healing. Currently these injuries lead to major impairment of voluntary muscle function in the limbs and extremities, making tasks of walking, reaching, grasping, etc. very difficult or impossible for many patients. It is not enough to focus therapeutic treatment on the se ...
