  3. HTSC RECEIVE PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    SIGNIFICANT SIMPLIFICATION OF MICROWAVE PHASED ARRAY ANTENNA SYSTEM ARCHITECTURES CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH HTSC DEVICE TECHNOLOGY. ELIMINATION OF THE LOW NOISE AMPLIFIERS (LNAS) CAN BE ACCOMPLISHED THROUGH REPLACEMENT OF THE GAAS PHASE SHIFTERS WITH LOW LOSS HTSC COMPONENTS. A REDUCTION IN COMPLEXITY LOWERS BOTH SYSTEM WEIGHT ANDCOST. KEY TO HTSC TECHNOLOGY INSERTION IN PHASED ARRAY ANTENNAS IS THE DE ...

  4. PROCESS MONITORING AND CONTROL DURING MOCVD OF FERROELECTRIC THIN FILMS

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    FERROELECTRICS (FE) HAVE A LARGE COMMERCIAL POTENTIAL AS PIEZOELECTRIC ELEMENTS, DIELECTRICS FOR CAPACITORS, AND IN OPTICAL GUIDED-WAVE DEVICES. MATERIALS PROCESSING HAS LIMITED APPLICATIONS IN MICROELECTRONICS AND PHOTONICS, HOWEVER, AND FEW METHODS ARE CAPABLE OF DEPOSITING HIGH QUALITY THIN FILMS COMPATIBLE WITH STANDARD SI INTEGRATED CIRCUIT PROCESS TECHNOLOGY. METALORGANIC CHEMICAL VAPOR DEPO ...

  5. Non-intrusive Multimodal Emotional State Monitoring

    SBC: VideoMining Corporation            Topic: SB032038

    This SBIR Phase I proposal will conduct an exploratory study to establish the feasibility of a multimodal framework for monitoring the emotion of a person using an non-intrusive sensor suite that includes video, audio, and thermal sensing. This will lead to the development of a portable gauge for robustly monitoring the emotional state of people in operational environments. The following five dyna ...

  6. SpinnerBot

    SBC: AUTOMATIKA, INC.            Topic: SB041018

    We propose to develop a highly capable disaster-response robotic system called SpinnerBot for use in confined and/or collapsed-structures for survivor search, site-investigation and -assessment. SpinnerBot will: 1) Provide for a small and light footprint and have a user-friendly GUI; 2) Allow for long-term deployment of at least 12 hours or more; 3) Be capable of carrying crucial sensor-modalitie ...

  9. RELAXOR FERROELECTRIC PB(MG1/3NB2/3)03 FOR THIN FILM CAPACITORS

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    THIS PROGRAM'S OBJECTIVE IS TO ESTABLISH THE RELAXOR FERROELECTRIC PB(MG1/2NBS/3)O3 (PMN) AS THE MATERIAL OF CHOICE FOR THIN FILM CAPACITORS IN DRAM AND ELECTRONIC PACKAGING APPLICATIONS.IN CONTRAST TO "NORMAL" FERROELECTRICS, E.G., BATIO3 AND PZT, RELAXORS OFFER HIGH DIELECTRIC CONSTANTS (K>10,000), BROAD PHASE TRANSITIONS,LOW E-FIELD DEPENDENCY OF K, AND LARGE RXC TIME CONSTANTS. IN ADDITION, TH ...

  10. Single Crystal Piezoelectric Actuators for Adaptive Structures

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: SB032033

    Single crystal piezoelectric actuators are proposed as a means of significantly increasing the stroke of a smart actuator to control the trailing edge flap of a helicopter rotor for vibration control and noise suppression. Conventional piezoelectric ceramic actuators have exhibited inadequate levels of stroke and/or force required to produce an angle of rotation of ±8° at 40 Hz. Single crystal ...
