  1. Silicon based Millimeter-Wave (MMW) sparse array radiometer receiver for photonic processing

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: SB113003

    The proposed innovation adopts a hybrid electro-optical approach, which combines the best of the electronic and photonic approaches to achieve high sensitivity, high inter-channel stability, and large-scale integration for an integrated mm-wave receiver. Silicon photonics provides the ideal platform for this as it enables the up-conversion of the mm-wave signals from each pixel to telecommunicatio ...

  2. Controlled Burn Using Nanoinfused Insensitive Solid Propellant

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB113004

    Future missile systems will need to be faster, more precise, impact a larger theater of operation, and exhibit improved safety for friendly combatants. There are many technology elements that contribute to the desired level of control. In solid propellants, nanoparticle additives theoretically offer attractive improvements to specific impulse, burn rate, and combustion efficiency which can transla ...

  3. Controlling Antibiotic Resistant or Highly Virulent Pathogens Through Plasmid Curing

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: SB122001

    Group II introns are a novel class of catalytic RNA molecule that are capable of site specific insertion into DNA targets. This property can be reengineered to facilitate site specific DNA integration into a wide range of DNA targets. We intend to exploit this property of group II introns to effect plasmid curing by disrupting critical sequences or proteins responsible for plasmid replication/sp ...

  4. UV/Vis Low-Dispersion Confocal Objective

    SBC: H NU PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB102001

    Confocal microscopy has become the tool of choice for sub-micron imaging, particularly of biological tissues, and is being used as a diagnostic tool in other disciplines as well. Broadband optics are required to collect emitted or scattered light throughout the visible and ultraviolet regions, with minimal spectral and temporal dispersion. The requirement to perform over a broad bandwidth encompas ...

  5. Design of Acoustic Metamaterials for Passive Hearing Protector

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB103006

    We propose to develop new acoustic metamaterials (AMMs) using locally resonant regimented structures, suitable for application in Hearing Protector Devices (HPDs), that will act as frequency selective acoustic filter for hearing protection. Our computational simulations conducted in phase I project have demonstrated that significant acoustic attenuation can be achieved in desired frequency ranges ...

  6. Novel Acoustic Materials for Passive Hearing Protection

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SB103006

    Hearing loss is the number one disability of soldiers returning from todays battlefield. Issued hearing protection devices are often not worn by soldiers because it can reduce situational awareness through undesired acoustic attenuation. Current passive hearing protection options cannot offer protection against high intensity noise such as gunshots and explosions while allowing users to hear every ...

  7. Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DEFENSE ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF081069

    Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) across the services need the capability to operate routinely in civil airspace like manned aircraft. Currently, the lack of Sense and Avoid (SAA) technology is the largest obstacle to realizing this capability. The SAA system should autonomously sense air traffic and direct the RPA to avoid the traffic in the same manner as a human pilot. The preceding program de ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. Self-Aware Planner Interface and Engine (SAPIEN)

    SBC: Archinoetics, LLC            Topic: SB072009

    Self-aware systems have three essential properties: they build empirical models of their own performance; they use those models to inform optimal plans of action; and they continually refine their models and plans based on the outcomes of their actions. Although engineers routinely build some degree of intelligence into the systems they design, an explanatory gap inevitably grows between what engi ...
