  1. Biomimetic Control of Flying Robots

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: A08056

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) demonstrated in Phase I that it is possible to design a Micro Air Vehicle (MAV) which is robust to collisions by using techniques similar to what insects use to recover from collisions while still in flight. Observational studies of insects colliding with objects (high speed films of instrumented insects) conducted at the Harvard Microrobotics Laboratory show that the ...

  2. Tunable, Narrow Line Width Mid-Infrared Laser Source

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: T401

    The purpose of this project is to advance the technology of interband cascade (IC) lasers and their facet coatings and to design, build, and deliver to NASA a tunable, narrow linewidth mid-infrared laser source operating in the 3.2 ¡V 3.6 micron wavelength band. Initial work will develop improved IC laser active regions as well as ultra-low-reflectivity anti-reflection facet coatings. We will als ...

  3. Tactical Telehaptic Communication (HAPTAC)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SB082025

    Communication between soldiers on the battlefield is currently limited to voice and hand signaling. However, the realities of combat, including loud noises and visual obstructions, degrade these communications modalities. The U.S. Department of Defense is interested in the use of tactile human interfaces as a supplemental communications channel between soldiers. A field-deployed haptic communica ...

  4. Low Temperature Diffusion Bonding of Semiconductor Devices


    Laser diodes (LD) have many desirable properties, e.g. small size and high electrical-to-optical efficiency. For ease of use, most applications require coupling the LD photons to an optical fiber. Attaching the LD-die to a heat-sink is a key packaging procedure. The heat-sink material is generally copper since it is the lowest thermal-resistance metal but its CTE (coefficient of thermal expans ...

  5. Advanced Low Thermal Resistance, Large Heat Capacity Coolers For Semiconductor Devices


    There is a critical need for revolutionary approaches for thermal management of 21st century semiconductor devices and hardware, such as advanced high performance computers, high-power laser diodes and solar cells for the conversion of sun light to renewable energy. The one limiting factor for all of the above extremely important and compelling technologies is waste heat management that can remove ...

  6. Co-site Interference Mitigation for VHF/UHF Communications

    SBC: MAGIQ TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N08093

    In our Phase I SBIR MagiQ Technologies demonstrated significant performance advancements in co-site interference cancellation using an optical signal processing approach where we showed ~ 65 dB cancellation of four interferers in the JTRS band. The method exploits the broadband linearity of optical components. In Phase II of this program we propose to further develop the by demonstrating multista ...

  7. Optimized Real-time Complex Information Display (ORCID) Phase II Proposal

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: N08T004

    Advances in modeling and simulation, networking, and computer graphics technology have made it possible to conduct large-scale, distributed live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) training events, such as the Navy’s Fleet Synthetic Training (FST) exercises, on a regular basis. However, FST exercises are not without room for improvement. Instructors and exercise controllers often confront difficult ...

  8. High Power All-Solid-State 4- Micron Source

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N02207

    Science Research Laboratory proposes to develop a pulsed, tunable mid-IR source with average power greater than 55 watts and high pulse repetition frequency (20 kHz). The program is divided into a baseline and two options. In the baseline program we will develop a continuous-wave laser operating at a wavelength of 2.1 microns with a power of approximately 120 watts. In the option programs, the 2.1 ...

  9. MUOS Quick Planner

    SBC: ORB Analytics            Topic: N08222

    COCOMs and G/RSSCs need the ability to rapidly and conveniently perform MUOS communications usage planning and to determine if a particular allocation is sufficient so as to, if necessary, negotiate an adjusted apportionment to service their priorities and throughput requirements. To satisfy this need, ORB Analytics, LLC, proposes a MUOS Quick Planner that executes an approach that exploits COTS 3 ...

  10. NDE for Residual Stress Relaxation

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N07168

    This program is specifically targeting the U.S. Navy’s revised focus on CBM+. The goal is to reduce costs of maintaining critical engine components and to enable life extending, on-condition maintenance practices. In this proposal the specific needs addressed are: (1) Residual stress relaxation mapping and tracking for critical engine components, and (2) NDT before and after CBM actions, such as ...
