  1. Development of Solid-state Optical Cooler Materials to Replace Conventional Cryocoolers Usedfor Cooling SWIR and LWIR Infrared Detectors and Focal-plane-arrays

    SBC: NP Photonics, Inc.            Topic: CBD171001

    We propose an all-fiber approach to heat removal from devices such as IR and LWIR detectors and sensors. In our approach, the cooling fibersegment, the pump fiber laser, and the optical fiber used for photon waste removal are all integrated into a single fiber configuration. NPPhotonics' high efficiency fiber lasers are used to pump high purity doped glass fibers, which provide the cooling action ...

  2. CALM: Collective Allostatic Load Measures

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB172006

    Warfighters operating in teams often face environments characterized by time pressure, rapidly unfolding events, high information processing demand and severe consequences of error. Managing an efficient work environment and minimizing errors due to the wear and tear, termed as the Allostatic Load, experienced by individuals under these highly stressful conditions necessitate identification of ind ...

  3. Cross Organizational Collaborative Discovery of Multi-Faceted Data Archives (CODIS)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB171005

    Traditionally data or document discovery has been essentially two-step process: 1) A query service built upon a strong foundation of information extraction and indexing, and 2) presentation services coupled with analytics services that works on queried s...

  4. Dynamic Multi-Scale Characterization Methods for Reactive Material Structures (RMS) for Advanced Warhead Effects

    SBC: Enig Associates, Inc.            Topic: A10059

    Enig Associates, Inc. (ENIG) proposes to accurately assess the design space of munitions containing reactive material structures (RMS) components by comparing their penetration, detonation and combustion effects to conventional weapon systems. Recent advances in energetic materials have produced RMS that enable smaller and more capable warheads. However, warhead developers are reluctant to incorpo ...

  5. ADDRESS: An Adaptive Data/Decision Recommendation Sequence System

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: SB171011

    Recommender systems have achieved great success in the commercial world, and also hold a strong potential for providing a major advantage to analysts and planners in the military domain. However, in order to realize this potential, a number of key challe...

  6. AOTF Based Spectro-Polarimetric Imaging System for Stand-off Chemical Detection

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13104

    Our goal in this SBIR project is to develop a lightweight, low-power, inexpensive hyperspectral spectro-polarimetric imaging sensor for wide area standoff detection of chemical agents. The imaging system will employ an acousto-optic tunable filter (AOTF) that operates in the LWIR wavelength range. The sensor will have polarimetric imaging capabilities which, adds a valuable signature feature to im ...

  7. Development of Low Cost Infrared Focal Plane Arrays For Passive Chemical Detection Using Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: BRIMROSE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: CBD13105

    We propose to develop low cost extended range Short Wave Infrared (SWIR) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) using Colloidal Quantum Dots (CQDs) technology. We have successfully produced a SWIR FPA camera with a resolution of 640 x 512 pixels and a sensitivity from 0.4 mm to 1.7 mm at room temperature. Our first initiative will be to extend the operational wavelength range to 2.5 mm, and then 3.0 mm. We hav ...

  8. Open-Path Spatial Ring Down Spectrometer for Chemical Vapor Detection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: CBD171004

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop an open-path spatial ringdown spectrometer (OP-SRS) for the detection and quantification of chemical warfare agents (CWAs) and toxic industrial chemicals (TICs). This approach enables sensitive and selective detection of the chemicals of interest over a broad dynamic range down to the 10 minute negligible military exposure guideline (MEG) level. Thi ...

  9. Development of a fiber optic high dynamic range magnetic field gradiometer operable in unshielded environments

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: SB161005

    Our Phase I program demonstrated gradient measurement system with noise level sensitivity at or better than 10 fT/cm/sqrtHz in unshielded environment. The Phase II proposal builds on the Phase I effort to develop a low cost fiber optic high dynamic rang...

  10. A Power of Ideas on the Internet (POINT) platform

    SBC: Next Century Corporation            Topic: OSD12LD8

    A Power of Ideas on the Internet (POINT) platform will be developed for the search and discovery of major ideas regarding overseas events that find expression in public online media sites. Through textual analysis of open source content we will trace the emergence and propagation of ideas--as they relate to particular topics and geographic locations. In addition, we will investigate empirical mode ...
