  2. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  4. SanFlow: A Therapeutic Agent for Use in the Field for Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ANTIRADICAL THERAPEUTICS LLC            Topic: DHA17011

    An ideal therapeutic for traumatic brain injury (TBI) accompanied by hemorrhagic shock (HS) should serve both as a resuscitation fluid to restore perfusion pressure while directly protecting the brain from secondary injury. Previous work in mice demonstrated that SanFlow is more effective than crystalloid or whole blood in restoring arterial pressure after TBI+HS and reduces neurodegeneration in t ...

  5. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions with a Clear Air Force Stakeholder Need

    SBC: SecureMarking, Inc.            Topic: AF183005

    Reconfigurable authentication unit for reading security codes printed onto parts. Our technology uses upconverting nanoparticles (UCNPs) to print durable security codes onto authentic products. We have developed a working reading apparatus that can scan codes printed onto objects with the dimensions of a credit card. This proposal will support development of a reader apparatus that is versatile en ...

  6. Biologically-Derived Targeted Antifungals for Textile Applications

    SBC: Antimicrobial Materials, Inc.            Topic: A17018

    Fungal skin infections plague active duty servicemembers at elevated rates due to exposure to warm, humid climates, poor skin hygiene, and close-quarters living arrangements. We have developed a novel solution that incorporates an endophytic fungal extract with selective activity against Trichophyton species of pathogens. In addition, the selected compound has negligible impact on the organisms th ...

  7. MONOLITHIC GAAS LIGHT-EMITTING DIODES ON SILICON VLSI CIRCUITS ELEMENTS

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    OPTOELECTRONIC SOURCES, INTEGRATED AS MONOLITHIC ELEMENTS ON SILICON VLSI CHIPS, OFFER IMPORTANT ADVANTAGES IN THE TRANSMISSION OF INFORMATION WITHIN THE CHIP OR BETWEEN CHIPS IN ADVANCED COMPUTER SYSTEMS. THE SPEED OF OPTICAL-INTEGRATED VLSI DEVICES IS EXPECTED TO BE CONSIDERABLY HIGHER THAN EQUIVALENT VLSI WITH METALLIC INTERCONNECTS, DUE TO ABSENCE OF THE RC DELAY INHERENT IN THE METALLIC CONDU ...
