  1. Multimode Chiroptical Spectrometer for Nanoparticle Characterization

    SBC: Applied Nanofluorescence LLC            Topic: None

    This project will develop a new scientific instrument optimized for the advanced characterization of near-infrared fluorescent nanoparticles that can exist as left- or right-handed structures (enantiomers). Single-walled carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs) are the leading current example of such nanomaterials. Applied NanoFluorescence, LLC (ANF) proposes a novel multi-mode chiroptical spectrometer that can ...

  2. Reusable Pilot Vehicle Interface (PVI) Components and Widgets using ARINC 661 and FACE Architectures

    SBC: ART OFFICE CORP.            Topic: A17082

    Attempts to reuse modern graphical software applications are met with difficulty because avionics applications are typically developed with a specific platform in mind; in these instances, portability is an afterthought. This proposal provides a solution for prioritizing and maximizing the reuse of graphical avionics systems by detailing an innovative software development process and reference arc ...

  5. High-Speed Cryogenic Optical Connector for Focal Plane Array Read-out

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: A17022

    This proposal is to develop and implement a cryogenic optical data link into an infrared camera that includes a focal plane array. The cryogenic optical data link uses a specially designed laser that can achieve very low bit energy and very low optical loss in cryogenic environments. The laser is a vertical cavity surface emitting laser (VCSEL) that is designed to reach high reliability and high e ...

  6. Non-toxic Hydrophobic Coatings for Improved Infrared and Red Phosphorus Obscurant Performance

    SBC: NCD TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: A17057

    Phase I successfully developed novel plasma coating technologies and diamond-like carbon (DLCs) coatings for producing non-toxic hydrophobic coatings to improve the infrared obscurant performance of metal flakes and red phosphorous (RP) powder. The DLC coatings were shown to be highly hydrophobic, reduce agglomeration, prevent oxidation, reduce phosphine production, and not interfere with the burn ...

  9. Templated Synthesis of Boron Suboxide

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A16124

    There is a significant need to reduce the weight and improve ballistic performance of protective equipment of the warfighter.While current high hardness and high toughness ceramic strikeface materials, including boron carbide (B4C), silicon carbide (SiC), and B4C/SiC hybrids, are robust, they come at a significant weight cost.Boron suboxide (B6O) is an even harder material that is a promising weig ...

  10. Universal Software-Defined Receiver for Assured Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT)

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: A14020

    The Universal Software Assured Positioning, Navigation and Timing (USAPNT) technology enhances the PNT resiliency in contested signal environments by augmenting GPS receiver architecture with multiple Global Navigation Satellite Systems (GNSS) and radio-frequency signals of opportunity (SOOP). The USAPNT Phase I and Phase II efforts have used field data to demonstrate that the incorporation of mul ...
