  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. Data-Driven Technology Discovery Methodologies

    SBC: Semandex Networks Inc.            Topic: DTRA162005

    During the Phase I effort, Semandex Networks and its team developed a prototype capability to detect trends in research publications by automatically identifying emerging concepts within the data. The implemented capability provides insights into past and

  3. Optimization of the NIST/UCSF Breast Phantom

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: 9030268R

    Magnetic resonance imaging (MRI) has become a primary diagnostic tool in scientific research and clinical imaging. Despite the excellent image quality that can be obtained with today’s MRIs, images acquired using different MRI systems and during longitudinal studies are not reproducible, and hence can be difficult, if not impossible, to compare. To address this issue, a standardized test of the ...

  4. Secure Email Agent Using the Domain Name System (DNS) as a Trust Infrastructure

    SBC: GRIER FORENSICS, LLC            Topic: 9020377R

    Although protocols for securing email have been available for over twenty years, these protocols, by nature of their use of asymmetric cryptography, require users to have the public key or certificate of the correspondents. Grier Forensics will develop technology to use the Domain Name System (DNS) to distribute certificates and keys, making email secure, authenticated, and confidential, curbing t ...

  5. Optically Covert Detection of Trace WMD Residues

    SBC: ASPEN MEDISYS, LLC            Topic: DTRA122003

    It is challenging to detect CBRN weapons production facilities that are hidden in residential and industrial neighborhoods. Once the weapons are manufactured, they will be sealed and removed from the site of production, so developing techniques to reveal the presence of the weapons will likely be fruitless. In this project, we will develop indicators that can be applied covertly around suspected w ...

  6. Real-Time Frequency-Selective Fading Channel Realization Generator

    SBC: Welkin Sciences, LLC            Topic: DTRA122020

    The proposed Complex Realization Generator (CReG) provides a real-time and software-based functional alternative to the Antenna-Complex Impulse Response Function (ACIRF) code. CReG generates fading channel realizations for the entire range of channel models represented by DTRA's Generalized Power Spectral Density (GPSD).

  7. Laser Direct Deposition Applied to the Manufacturing of Bulk, Net Shaped Metallic Glasses

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: DTRA11003

    We propose to develop reactive composite materials with sufficient strength and stiffness to serve as structural components for penetrating weapons and other munitions. The composites will consist of two materials that react with each other, in either oxidation-reduction (such as in a thermite) or bimetallic reactions. One component will be in the form of fiber, wire, or wire-mesh, within a bondin ...

  8. Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to continue and complete development of the 25 kW Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements begun under a Phase I SBIR award. In the proposed Phase II work described, HPD will complete mechanical and electrical subsystems, apply a ceramic carbon nanotube coating to the internal surfaces of the optical head, complete development of control ...

  9. ANALYSIS OF HANE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP

    SBC: AUSTIN RESEARCH ASSOCIATES            Topic: N/A

    MODELING OF THE AMBIENT AND PROMPT IONOSPHERIC REGIONS IN A THIN LAYER APPROXIMATION ALLOWS AN EFFICIENT METHOD OF DETERMINING THE TIME EVOLUTION, PROPAGATION, AND SIGNAL STRENGTH OF THE 0-10 SECOND MHD EMP ASSOCIATED WITH HIGH ALTITUDE NUCLEAR DETONATIONS.
