  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. Static Analysis of Multi-Core Applications

    SBC: Grammatech, Inc.            Topic: SB072010

    Multi-core architectures, which recently have become pervasive, exposed the software-engineering community to a host of challenges. Applications that want to take a full advantage of a multi-core processor must be explicitly parallelized—a process that is hard and error prone. Additionally, the programs that have already been parallelized and shown to work robustly on a single-core processor oft ...

  6. Template-based Lithography for Advanced Low-Volume Electronics

    SBC: LITHOGRAPHIC TECHNOLOGY CORP. DBA AMPHIB            Topic: SB082043

    The goal of the Phase II of the project for template IL lithography is to develop a prototype system capable of regular interferometric based template lithography for cost effective, high resolution nanofabrication of low volume electronics to demonstrate the resolution and throughput performance necessary for 45nm lithography generations and beyond. This Phase II proposal will advance of the find ...

  7. Building Recognition by Function

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: ST081009

    The goal of BLUE is to identify the function or purpose of buildings using persistant surveillance video such as Constant Hawk or Angel Fire. In Phase 1, we developed preliminary algorithms demonstrating that functional recognition of buildings and other scene elements such as parking spots and doorways is possible, using both supervised and unsupervised techniques to define functional models of b ...

  8. An Open, Adaptive Geospatial Visual Information System

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB101006

    The military has an increasing amount and variety of data sources collected using state-of-the-art technologies. Further, there is rapid proliferation of handheld devices, meaning that every soldier may become a sensor and require access to the information stream. Such a rich information environment holds the potential to vastly increase the safety and effectiveness of missions. However, due to th ...

  9. Vision with a Purpose: Inferring the Function of Objects in Video

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB082021

    On Phase 1, we developed an approach to functional object recognition that learns functional models from video tracks in an unsupervised fashion. On Phase 2, we will expand the algorithms and concepts developed on Phase 1 into a comprehensive prototype system that performs functional object recognition across a wide variety of object classes. The system will be robust against track fragmentation a ...

  10. Super 3D from Video

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: SB082028

    We propose to develop a novel approach to extracting 3D structure from wide-area video with sub-pixel accuracy. Multiple redundant video frames from very similar viewpoints enable super-resolution, while multiple frames from separated viewpoints enable 3D structure estimation. In our approach we will combine elements of the two processes through a variant of space carving, while avoiding the chall ...
