  1. D' HovRobot: Sensor Elevating System Capable of Tethered Hover and Free Flight

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: N/A

    D'HovRobot is a rotor-less V/STOL UAV to meet the needs for tactical sensor elevation. It can operate on a tether, using cabled electrical power, or as a free-flyer, using an engine. It have a VTOL version for close-range operation, and a STOVL version for longer-range / helicopter-escort missions. The rotorless UAV can fly safely close to trees, wires and buildings. D'HovRobot is designed for ...

  2. System Synthesis Environment

    SBC: INFOPIKE, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This project describes a design methodology and development environment that can be used to develop efficient parallel or distributed software systems. Implicit in the methodology are concerns for the characteristics of the information being processed, the properties of the host computer systems, execution time performance issues and measures of effectiveness. The methodology incorporates the ad ...

  4. Low Cost, Low Bandgap Thermophotovoltaic Cells

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    Using new low bandgap GaSb photovoltaic cells, JX Crystals has recently demonstrated functional thermophotovoltaic prototype generators. While it is generally believed that the cost of materials makes non-silicon photovoltaic cells prohibitively expensive unless one can develop thin film cells, this thesis is wrong for thermophotovoltaic cells. Specifically for the GaSb cell, the Ga and Sb mater ...

  5. Air Decontamination with Corona Plasma

    SBC: MesoSystems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    As the availability of materials and know-how to field weapons of mass destruction using chemical and biological warfare (CBW) agents are increasingly available to rogue groups and nations, novel approaches to air filtration for HVAC systems are critical for national security. Using a gas phase corona reactor (GPCR) system, which is capable of destroying chemical and biological agents and deliver ...

  7. Three Dimensional Matrices for Culturing Cells

    SBC: SYMBIOTECH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research Grant proposal will develop three-dimensional matrices for in vitro culturing of cells. Three-dimensional matrices will be developed using molecular imprinting polymer (MIP) technology. MIPs in combination with various biological extracellular matrix proteins will be utilized to form different three-dimensional matrices. The biocompatibility and p ...

  8. A Towed Parametric Sonar for Littoral Warfare, Mine Hunting, and Mapping

    SBC: THE KILDARE CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The conceptual design is presented of a Remote Operating Minehunting Parametric Sonar (ROMPS), for use with the existing Perry technologies RMV as an unmanned tow-vehicle. The ROMPS has three separate sonar systems, viz. (1) a forward-looking sonar, (2)) a side-looking sonar, and (3) a conventional fathometer. Both the forward-looking sonar and the side-looking sonar can operate at their primary ...

  9. Moving Target Indication Radar Architectures for Tactical Targets in Foliage

    SBC: TECHNOLOGY SERVICE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The detection and tracking of slow to moderate speed ground moving targets with a foliage penetration radar operating on a UAV such as a Global Hawk will require an endo-clutter signal processing capability. A concept is proposed that utilizes a suite of both conventional algorithms and innovative techniques to form the requisite signal processing architecture. Among the algorithms in the propos ...

  10. Spacecraft Hypervisor Implementing Modularity and Security (SHIMS)

    SBC: Planetary Resources Development Corporation            Topic: SB131009

    Incorporating hypervisor-based software virtualization into spacecraft architectures offers the capability to integrate payload software in a plug-and-play fashion, enabling more flexible and reconfigurable platforms. The hypervisor allows the payload software to be implemented in an abstracted, virtualized environment, which isolates the payload software from core spacecraft functions and offers ...
