  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. Special Nuclear Material (SNM) Detection

    SBC: GALT LLC            Topic: SB092015

    The challenge of highly specific long-range detection of special nuclear materials (SNM) requires the development of alternative technologies to those typically deployed in the nuclear radiation detection field. We propose to quantify the feasibility of one such alternative during the Phase I research. Specifically, in order to detect SNM with greater than 95 % probability and to control the fal ...

  6. Behavioral MANET for the Automated Control of Complex Tasks in Animals

    SBC: MediaBalance, Inc.            Topic: SB092004

    This Phase I SBIR is for the testing of a mobile ad hoc networking (MANET) platform to automate the training of animals to perform complex tasks. The technology will reduce the labor involved in training animals using MANETs of embedded devices that can be flexibly configured and monitored via Internet. The technology is built around the principles of behavior engineering. Behavioral sensing, ...

  7. Non-Condensing Anti-Fog Hydrophobic Optical Coating

    SBC: Nico Technologies Corp.            Topic: SB101010

    Ultrahydrophobic coatings can provide an elegant solution to the anti-fogging problem that plagues current military optical systems. Biomimetic composite materials can offer realistic and permanent solution to the existing short-comings of current anti-fogging coatings. This proposal suggests realization of a biomimetic composite for anti-fogging films that: (1) are composed of an inorganic compon ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Multi-Material Structures

    SBC: SOLIDICA            Topic: SB093001

    Solidica proposes a new, more efficient joint design to join composite materials to steel structures. Using Ultrasonic Consolidation (UC), a low cost next generation additive manufacturing process, Solidica can build steel laminates that are later joined to the composite material through both a mechanical interlock and an adhesive bond. Using ultrasonically cold-welded foils shapes can be produc ...

  10. 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 ...
