  1. Next Generation Solar Cells Based on Nanostructures

    SBC: ADVANCED DIAMOND SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: AF06274

    Advanced Diamond Solutions, Inc. proposes the development of a novel high efficiency solar cell design based on amorphous diamond nanotip thermoelectric power generation properties. Amorphous diamond has a unique set of material characteristics stemming from its combination of graphitic, diamond and carbon-nanotube structures. Amorphous diamond inherently possesses numerous discrete energy state ...

  2. Power Source Materials & Subcomponents Manufacturing Improvements

    SBC: ADVANCED MEMBRANE SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD05MT2

    Advanced Membrane Systems Inc. (AMS) proposes a 6-month research effort to demonstrate the feasibility of producing a separator for BA-5590 primary batteries. It is proposed to modify the formulation and process condition of an existing separator developed by AMS for lithium ion cells and make it more porous and suitable for BA-5590 batteries and deliver separator samples to DoD labs and battery m ...

  3. Helicopter Remote Manipulation of External Slingloads (HERMES)

    SBC: Advanced Optical Systems, Inc            Topic: A05057

    Helicopter operations in low visibility conditions and sling load operations continue to add risk to aviation operations. If slingloads could be picked up without the need for a ground crew, lives could be saved. In addition, a sensor that can detect the location of a load would help in low visibility conditions. We propose to develop such a system. It will include the mechanical structures ne ...

  4. Real-time Ladar Scene Rendering and Projection Component Technologies

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: MDA05049

    The objective of this Phase I SBIR proposal is to show the feasibility of integrating the key optical and electronic components of a multichannel laser modulator into a single multichip module (MCM). The module concept developed under this effort will consist of at least eight parallel channels capable of independently producing an analog amplitude modulated optical waveform. Integration will incl ...

  5. Development of an Ultra-Fast Optical Beam Scanner for Tactical Laser Radar (LADAR) Seeker

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A05142

    Optical scanners are used to control the position of a light beam in one or more orthogonal spatial dimensions. There is a strong need to develop seeker with increased ability to track and engage multiple fleeting targets at increased range. Optomechanical scanners and scanners based on liquid crystals (LC) can effectively scan laser beams but they have limited scanning speeds. voltage, optical ...

  6. Simulation of Stressing Optical Clutter for Scene Generation

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA04154

    Infrared sensors play an important role in missile defense systems, and continued improvement in their performance is critical as adversary payloads become smaller, cooler, and dimmer. While there can be no substitute for in-situ performance testing, the risks, cost, and development time for future systems can be reduced through accurate scene and sensor simulations. Current scene simulation alg ...

  7. Nowcasting/Forecasting the Battlespace Environment

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: AF05037

    This effort to nowcast and forecast the Battlespace environment will predict the real world occurrence and structure of stressing atmospheric phenomena by developing a prototype tool and operational concept that demonstrate forecasting capability and accuracy improvements. Our approach to this problem involves locating and identifying stressing optical backgrounds contained in measurements and ex ...

  8. Maximizing the utility of high-resolution ensemble meteorological forecasts for planning and responding to hazardous releases

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N06T037

    The two primary motivations for this work are: First, to provide forecasts of dispersion of a hazardous release and associated uncertainty (or “error bars”) based on the available ensemble MET data. Second, to provide an efficient and user-friendly tool for decision makers supporting both deterministic and ensemble forecast MET data as well as resulting dispersion model forecasts. To achieve ...

  9. Improved Optical Turbulence Forecasts

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA05012

    We propose a Phase I SBIR project to define a forecast system to predict lower stratospheric and upper tropospheric optical turbulence. The application will be designed to be implemented within the Airborne Laser Atmospheric Decision Aid (ADA). The application will utilize as input data from the Air Force Weather Agency's theater numerical weather prediction (NWP) model. During Phase I, several ca ...

  10. An Ensemble Kalman Filtering Approach for Regional Ocean Data Assimilation

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N06099

    Current and future operational needs of the Navy require the capability to combine very large and disparate datasets with dynamical ocean numerical models to produce, in real time, accurate analyses and forecasts together with respective uncertainty estimates for any littoral region of the globe. We propose to implement a highly scalable, portable and efficient ocean data assimilation system base ...
