  1. Microfabricated Broadband Connectors for Frequencies Above 100 GHz

    SBC: Nuvotronics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The region of the electromagnetic spectrum from 100 GHz to 400 GHz is currently underutilized but an area of exciting promise. Although atmospheric attenuation is higher in this region, the high frequency enables higher bandwidth operation. Transmit and receive components are also small resulting in the potential for lightweight miniature systems. Sub-millimeter waves also have the unique ability ...

  2. Non-contact Inline Material Sensor for Measurement of Electrical Properties of Nanofiber Films

    SBC: PANERATECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    PaneraTech is proposing a non-contact dual sensor for broadband and real-time characterization of thin nanofiber films during the manufacturing. Our solution offers several unique aspects that are ideal for this application. For instance, it uses a dual CPW sensor for low frequencies and free space transmission system for higher frequency band. Our proposed sensor system is also equipped with high ...

  3. Manufacturing Process Optimization of Ultrasonic Bonding of Metallic Composites

    SBC: ADC Acquisition Co. dba Automated Dynamics            Topic: A12aT004

    This project will build on a substantial body of empirical research to develop and validate multiscale models of ultrasonic bonding during tape placement of metal matrix composite (MMC) structures. Experiments to-date have been guided by knowledge of the ultrasonic bonding of metals heuristically applied to the more complex problem of bonding MMCs. While all scales are of interest in a complete ...

  4. On Demand Energy Activated Liquid Decontaminants and Cleaning Solutions

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: A12aT005

    On-site activated decontaminants are ideal because the activated solution is highly reactive and can quickly destroy chemical and biological warfare agents, but prior to activation the decontaminant ingredients can be safely stored for years, shipped, handled and have a long shelf life. TDA"s electrochemical decontamination (EC-Decon) technology utilizes electrical activation of an inert salt sol ...

  5. High Performance, Low Temperature Asymmetric Supercapacitors

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A12aT010

    Today's military equipment is required to operate in extreme conditions: frigid arctic locations, dry/hot deserts, and humid tropical jungles, which leads to design operating temperature ranges of approximately -50degreesC to 70degreesC for current power systems. No commercial electric power storage device can perform at high rates at the lower limits of this temperature range, and technolo ...

  6. Nanostructured Carbon Nanosheet Electrode for Enzymatic Fuel Cells

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A12aT011

    Enzymatic fuel cells provide significant potential for increased energy density with low costs through the use of renewable fuel sources and biocatalysts. Their real-world application is primarily limited by 1) the lack of effective enzyme immobilization method to support efficient electron transfer from enzyme to the electrode surface, 2) low power density and 3) high overpotentials. Luna Innovat ...

  7. The Sonic3D: An Integrated Battlefield Ultrasound with Automated Applications

    SBC: POCKETSONICS, INC.            Topic: A12aT015

    PocketSonics Inc. proposes to develop an ultra-portable, highly integrated ultrasound device optimized for use by minimally trained users assessing and guiding resuscitation of combat casualties at the initial point-of-care. Current portable systems have limited battery life, cumbersome cables, and oftentimes require two hands or multiple personnel to operate. Furthermore, significant training is ...

  8. Micromachined Probes for Measurement and Characterization of Terahertz Materials and Devices

    SBC: DOMINION MICROPROBES, INC.            Topic: A12aT022

    The objective of this program is to investigate, develop, and bring to market a robust and reliable probe technology that permits direct, in-situ measurement of devices and materials at frequencies up to 1 THz. Although such measurement capability currently does not exist, it is widely recognized as a critical need for the future development of terahertz devices. Recent advances in silicon microma ...

  9. Naturalistic Neurocognitive Assessment Using Mobile Gaming Platforms


    Neurocognitive health affects the function and quality of life of military service members and their families and is critical to force readiness. Assessing and monitoring neurocognitive health is particularly relevant for supporting service members given the increased rates of traumatic brain injury (TBI) and psychological health problems. In response the development of a smart-phone based game w ...

  10. Landmark Navigation for Unmanned Ground Vehicles

    SBC: Kitware, Inc.            Topic: A12aT030

    We propose a novel robot navigation paradigm based on high-level visual landmarks, including structural landmarks and object-level landmarks. The system will use our novel multilayered-feature graph (MFG) to combine multiple, heterogeneous features (from points to planes to vanishing points) robustly into a single, hierarchical framework for scene structure. It will combine this with salient scene ...
