  1. Photonic Band Gap Structures for Solar Energy Generation

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB092002

    The demand for renewable energy is motivating R&D efforts toward the development of novel photovoltaic (PV) technology. Efficient and low cost solar cells will have an important role in defense applications particularly powering portable electronic devices. Current solar cells based on single crystal silicon are still not at a level to be cost effective when compared to other forms of electrical g ...

  2. Nanotechnology-Enhanced Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemicals

    SBC: STREAMLINE AUTOMATION, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    Chlorine gas was first used as a weapon during World War I, and reemerged as a threat in Iraq compounding the dangers from existing improvised explosive devices. One of the significant challenges with preventing attacks that involve toxic industrial chemicals (TICs) like chlorine and ammonia is that they have genuine civilian uses for water treatment, in refrigeration systems, and other applicatio ...

  3. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    A significant amount of personal injury and property damage as well as lost productivity could be avoided by speeding up the body’s adjustment cycle to new circadian schedules or re-synchronizing body schedules that have slipped or advanced. For the military, this problem is especially acute because the warfighters’ duties include dangerous equipment and a need for 24-hour operational readine ...

  4. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    Within harsh environment areas, Naval vessels require illumination. Incandescent based Symbol 48.2 explosion-proof fixtures are rated to operate in these spaces but are inefficient, resulting in unsafe fixture surface temperatures and unnecessarily high energy consumption. Under such extreme operating conditions, the lamps in the fixtures fail frequently, leading to high maintenance costs. Prod ...

  5. Dark Droid: Securing Handheld Apps from Attack for Warfighters

    SBC: Pikewerks Corporation            Topic: SB102002

    U.S. and coalition forces are increasingly becoming more technologically advanced. Technologies such as the Tactical Ground Reporting (TIGR) System and the Remote Operated Video Enhanced Receiver (ROVER) are but two technologies that use small form factor, ultra portable devices. Unfortunately, these technologies tightly couple software with specialized hardware platforms, forcing U.S. military ...

  6. Lithium Niobate Optical Modulator for Microwave Filtering Applications

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: SB082039

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project develops novel materials processing and device design that extract the maximum possible performance out of the lithium niobate electro-optic material. The novel modulator device incorporates reconfigurable quasi-phase matching (RQPM) to produce an arbitrary RF bandpass response. The Phase I effort has laid a firm foundation for the creation ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Digital Analysis Computing Software Solutions for the Supply Chain

    SBC: ALTASIM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB092006

    Electrical circuit designers at Tier 2-4 suppliers to the Department of Defense (DoD) are currently using desktop computing to design their products. To improve the circuit design in the DoD supply chain, designers will need to be able to analyze their circuits with High Performance Computing resources. Designers seeking to innovate their circuits must have access to HPC facilities that maintain c ...

  9. Integrated Control System for an Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator

    SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are emerging markets that are driven by advances in x-ray micro-calorimeters. These detectors allow an energy resolution 10x better than existing commercial x-ray detectors. The primary application is the detection and analysis of nanoscale particle contaminates in IC production. The temperature stability of the micro-calorimeter is critical for real-time analysis and maintaining the x-ray l ...

  10. Multiscale Model of Lung Injury and Personnel Protection from Blast Overpressures in Confined Areas

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB032032

    Explosive devices are the preferred weapon in the majority of terrorist attacks and cause of major injuries to soldiers and civilians. Military medics and future first responders must be educated in the unique blast injury pathophysiology to make decisions in diagnosis, resuscitation, and treatment planning. The objective of this project is to develop high fidelity, multiscale, physiology-based mo ...
