  1. Open Source Information Tactical Exploitation (ONSITE)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB082026

    This Phase II SBIR effort will design and demonstrate enabling technology for fast text processing in the presence of noisy inputs while achieving semantically rich extractions of actionable knowledge from unstructured text data. The successful Phase I project demonstrated the ability to process ten gigabytes of raw text data in less than 15 minutes, the DARPA Phase I benchmark. The proposed Pha ...

  2. Functionally Graded Metallic Lattice Components (FGMLC) for Advanced Propulsion Component

    SBC: Orbital Technologies Corporation            Topic: SB082007

    ORBITEC proposes to develop functionally graded metallic lattice components for use in advanced rocket propulsion systems. The FGMLC material will utilize an internal intertwined lattice structure to join different constituents of the composite material. This lattice structure will allow a designed gradation from one material to another while maintaining each materials properties. The FGMLC will u ...

  3. Design and Fabrication Techniques for 3-Dimensional Integrated Circuits

    SBC: GOOFYFOOT LABS LLC            Topic: SB091008

    The 3-D integration of systems through monolithic wafer stacking is an emerging technology that can alleviate power, delay, and area problems for digital circuits and can enable a host of new applications in the system on a chip design space. Currently, CAD tools for 3-D integration are severely lacking stagnating potentially explosive growth of the technology. GoofyFoot Labs proposes TESI3d, a ...

  4. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SB082007

    Emerging combat conditions require new multifunctional fiber materials, associated composite systems and processing techniques to be developed starting now. As envisioned, these materials cannot be based on incremental gains made using current technology, but major leaps forward arising from completely new fiber technologies. TRI/Austin recently conceived of a novel material, which it believes i ...

  5. Nanometer-Precision Positioning System with 2mm x 2mm Range of Motion

    SBC: PIEZOMAX TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: BMDO99013

    nPoint proposes to design and construct a closed-loop 2mm range-of-motion, 2-axis nano-positioning system with unprecedented precision and resolution. There is considerable need for such a tool in near-future nanomanufacturing, characterization, and lithography. One example is scanned-probe tip-based nanomanufacturing. As such manufacturing comes to commercial fruition, accurate long-range positi ...

  6. AURA – Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect

    SBC: DEUMBRA, INC.            Topic: SB101002

    Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) functions as virtual tutors that adapt to student responses. Such ITSs, however, do not yield student learning improvements equivalent to students tutored by human instructors. Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect (AURA) is a closed-loop, platform-independent “front-end” for informing ITSs with near real-time inferences of student engagement and affect during lea ...

  7. Software Architecture for Navigation Devices Enabling Flexible Addition of Aiding Sensors

    SBC: 5-D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB101011

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking a software architecture that allows new and advanced navigation sensors to be integrated with an existing navigation system. To demonstrate this technology, DARPA desires a design for a personal navigator leveraging this technology that is capable of providing a location fix with an accuracy of 10 meters 3D rms. This navigator needs ...

  8. Compact photonic sensor system for rapid biological threat detection

    SBC: Resonant Sensors Incorporated            Topic: SB093010

    The objective of this work is development of a new sensor system to rapidly detect and diagnose biological threats to the public, including microbial and toxic agents. A unique, new photonic resonance sensor concept implemented with subwavelength waveguide gratings is applied to monitor each detection event in real-time. Due to inherent polarization diversity, multiple resonance peaks shift their ...

  9. Multi-Material Structures

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SB093001

    The use of graphite fiber reinforced composite materials in Navy ship applications has a number of potential benefits that can be attributed to the material’s high specific strength and stiffness. However, graphite fiber can form a galvanic cell with the steel structure, especially at the joints between the composite and steel, promoting corrosion that degrades both the composite and the steel. ...

  10. Visually Guided Robotic Hand / Eye Coordination

    SBC: Traclabs Inc.            Topic: SB092005

    There are many mundane tasks that humans – even children – perform easily, yet are unattainable by current robotic systems. These include dexterous manipulation in unstructured environments, where the exact location and characteristics of the objects are not known a priori, such as picking fruit or doing dishes. Recent years have seen many advances in both robotic manipulation and machine vis ...
