  1. Optical Arbitrary Waveform Generator On a Monolithic InP Chip with Continuously Extendable Duration based on Novel Ultra-High-Resolution Diffraction G

    SBC: OptoNet            Topic: SB082041

    The proposed project will undertake the research, design, and development of key concepts and technologies for extended duration optical arbitrary waveform generator (OAWG) over large bandwidth, based on a monolithically integrated high-speed optoelectronic chip with a unique integrated ultimate-resolution super-compact grating (URSCG). The proposed OAWG is capable of continuously extendable dura ...

  2. Massively Scalable Themes, Entities and Relationships (MASTER)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: SB082026

    Discovering the important evidence in the form of activities, actors and relationships in a sea of open source data requires the ability to extract and correlate seemingly unrelated pieces of data, distinguish that data from the noise of harmless civilian activity and find the hidden attributes and relationships that characterize the true threat. To meet these requirements, the DAC BOBCAT Team pr ...

  3. Electric Lift Fan for VTOL Air Vehicle

    SBC: AURORA FLIGHT SCIENCES CORPORATION            Topic: SB091014

    The need exists for safe, high power density electric lift fans, especially for vertical takeoff and landing (VTOL) air vehicle applications. The unique approach proposed here uses electric power to drive a brushless ring motor and fan inside a duct. The ring motor is scalable and requires no gearing, linkages, or hot-gas plumbing. The low disk loading compared to turbojets and turbofans minimizes ...

  4. Computational Design of MoCr Superalloys for High Temperature Service

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: SB082007

    QuesTek Innovations LLC proposes to expand its computational Materials by Design® technology by developing a “design toolkit” that enables the computational design and development of oxidation- and creep-resistant ductile multicomponent Molybdenum-based superalloys for use at 1300C and above. The proposed toolkit will build upon key mechanistic insights gained in the Phase I program and en ...

  5. Path Planner for Dynamic Environments

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082030

    Despite excellent recent progress in path planning, current state-of-the-art planners are still incapable of operating robustly in environments that are both cluttered and highly dynamic. The challenge is two-fold. First, predicting the trajectories of dynamic obstacles (i.e., cars, humans, aircraft) is very noisy. As a result, to achieve robust execution, perception modules need to provide a rich ...

  6. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    The Department of Defense (DOD) would benefit from a persistent mobile power generating capability to support global deployments, remote basing, and disaster relief. Eliminating the need for fuel transport over long distance, a towable floating wind turbine could provide a persistent power source. The most robust configuration for this concept is an unmoored free-floating design. Such a mobile fre ...

  7. Dismount Tracking in Urban Scenes

    SBC: ObjectVideo            Topic: SB082027

    This SBIR Phase II project will develop an advanced dismount activity analysis system that will utilize novel statistical models and non-causal techniques for robust dismount detection and tracking in low spatial resolution and frame-rate aerial videos. The key innovation in this effort is an integrated approach for dismount detection and tracking that explicitly models typical scenarios including ...

  8. Shape Memory Antimicrobial Radioprotective Textiles™ (SMART™) Garments

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: SB082013

    While radiation shielding primarily depends on mass density and thickness, NanoSonic has physically demonstrated 1) self-assembled SMART garments based on high z nanostructured elements that do not emit harmful secondary radiation, and 2) significant improvements in gamma ray attenuation (under 137Cs) relative to several commercial shielding garments to reach TRL 5. During Phase I of this DARPA D ...

  9. Rapid and Accurate Idea Transfer

    SBC: Systemic Management Science Corporation            Topic: SB072032

    With an estimated 450 million PowerPoint users giving around 1 million briefings each day (Microsoft), it is easy to appreciate how the criticism of "endemic use of PowerPoint" has far reaching implications in the armed forces as well as in diplomatic and commercial realms. Thus, Systemic Management Science Corporation proposes an innovative alternative to PowerPoint, the efficacy of which is max ...

  10. High Power Density TAG Motors for Hybrid Electric Air Platforms

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082011

    DARPA SBIR solicitation SB082-011 seeks the design and development of high power density electric motors for hybrid electric air platforms, indicating a need for a prototype motor rated at 7 hp, weight less than 1.4 lbs, efficiency greater than 95% and operating at speeds less than 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), to be used for a ducted fan of less than 12 inches in diameter with a targeted s ...
