  3. High-Power, Continuous-Wave 3.0- to 3.5-Micron Emitting Quantum Cascade Semiconductor Laser

    SBC: INTRABAND, LLC            Topic: N12AT003

    The technical objectives of this proposal are: 1) the design of 3.0-3.5 micron-emitting quantum cascade laser (QCL) structures grown on metamorphic-buffer-layer (MBL) substrates; 2) the realization of electroluminescent QCL structures on MBLs with emission in the 3.0-3.5-micron wavelength range. Novel tapered active-region (TA) QCLs will be designed to substantially suppress carrier leakage out of ...

  4. 3D Multispectral Vision System for Robotic Fire-Fighting Systems

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N12AT021

    Advancements in humanoid robotics led the U.S. Navy to recognize the potential for humanoid robotic fire-fighting systems such as the Shipboard Autonomous Fire Fighting Robot (SAFFiR) to address the dangerous task of onboard fire suppression and reduce costly time-to-response. A vision subsystem capable of imaging through low-visibility fire smoke and generating a 3D model of the local environment ...

  6. Ultra-High Density Nano-Grained Multispectral YAG Windows

    SBC: Texas Biochemicals Incorporated            Topic: N112115

    Texas Biochemicals Inc, proposes to develop Polycrystalline Yttrium Aluminum Garnet (YAG) as a cost effective material to replace Sapphires for IR transparent multispectral (1-5 microns) sensor windows. We have recently developed a novel technology to produce mono-dispersed, non-agglomerated and ultra-high purity YAG nano-powders. These powders with grain growth reducing sintering additives were u ...

  7. Information DiscovEry Assistant that Learns (IDEAL)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N112152

    Traditional keyword search fails to adequately meet the needs of the modern intelligence analyst. If analysts were able to express their information needs in plain terms, understood by a search engine as guidance or examples, documents and other information artifacts might be brought to light that simply"guessing at"appropriate keywords would never elicit. Further, because analysts seldom work in ...

  8. Manufacturing of Stress Physical Scale Models (SPSMs) for Signature Reduction and Resistance to Environmental Stress

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: N112153

    The Stress Physical Scale Model (SPSM) is expected to perform a critical role in the characterization and remediation of magnetic signatures in Navy ships. The properly executed SPSM permits the accurate sizing and location of degaussing systems which can take into account the change in magnetic signature due to structural loading. To be of cost benefit, the SPSM must be constructed before the fin ...

  9. Low Power Non Thermal Plasma Assisted Removal of Impurities for Biogas Purification

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N112160

    There has been increased interest in use of biogas as a renewable energy source for environmentally benign power sources such as fuel cells. The stringent fuel quality requirements of the fuel cell however requires using multiple, complex purification steps for achieving the desired fuel quality. It is hence important to develop a simple cost and energy effective way to purify the biogas to the de ...

  10. Modeling Fuel Economy Improvements from Variable Speed Accessory Drives

    SBC: Orbital Traction, Ltd.            Topic: N112165

    In current military and civilian ground vehicles, accessory components are designed to work across a large range of rotational speeds. This typically results in accessories that are over-sized. Consequently, efficiencies suffer over a significant portion of the accessory operational range. A variable speed drive would enable accessory components to operate at optimal speeds across the full range o ...
