  1. Fulcrum Biometrics' Plan for Research and Development of WS-BD Conformant Handheld Fingerprint Sensor

    SBC: Fulcrum Biometrics, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Trusted biometric validation of individual identities has never been more important. Several contributing factors are the increase in global terrorism, identity theft and the increase in legislation which are driving the accelerated adoption of biometric technology. Unfortunately, the biometrics industry has not actively responded to the changing market conditions being driven by the explosion in ...

  2. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-Ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: N/A

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative as well as quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV (full width at half maximum) for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small s ...

  3. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...

  5. Precision 10 kV Programmable Voltage Source

    SBC: Low Thermal Electronics, Inc.            Topic: NA

    Low Thermal Electronics, Inc. proposes to design a stand-alone, programmable voltage source capable of supplying precision voltages in the range of zero to 1,000 volts direct current (DC), with options for scaling up to 10,000 volts, and with a total expanded uncertainty (k=2) of less than 10uV/V for the 10,000 volt version. This instrument will improve state-of-the-art measurements in high resist ...

  6. CONTROL OF A SPACE-BASED ELECTROMAGNETICALLY LAUNCHED PROJECTILE VIA A MODIFIED NUTATION DAMPER

    SBC: Coleman Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    A DEVICE IS HEREIN PROPOSED WHICH CAN BE INCORPORATED INTO A PROJECTILE, SUCH AS A RAIL GUN PROJECTILE, TO CONTROL ATTITUDE. THE DEVICE, A MODIFIED NUTATION DAMPER, HAS ESSENTIALLY ONLY ONE MOVING PART AND SO CAN BE MADE, TO EXHIBIT EXTREME STRENGTH. BY CONTROLLING THE PROJECTILE'S ATTITUDE DURING FLIGHT, A STRAP DOWN SEEKER CAN BE MADE TO MECHANICALLY SCAN FOR TARGET ACQUISITION. THE ATTITUDE CON ...

  10. TUNABLE SINGLE-FREQUENCY ND:YAG LASERS FOR COHERENT LIDAR

    SBC: Schwartz Electro-Optics, Inc            Topic: N/A

    SOME OF THE LASER RADARS PROPOSED FOR SPACE-BASED SENSORS ENGAGED IN SURVBEILLANCE, ACQUISITION AND TRACKING FOR THE STRATEGIC DEFENSE INITIATIVE MAY REQUIRE THE USE OF SINGLE- FREQUENCY LASERS FOR COHERENT, HETERODYNE DETECTION OF RETURN SIGNALS. IN SOME SENSOR CONFIGURATIONS THE RELATIVE VELOCITIES BETWEEN SOURCE AND TARGET MAY VARY WIDELY, RE- QUIRING WIDEBAND TUNABILITY OF THE LOCAL OSCILLATOR ...
