  1. Novel Acoustic Materials for Passive Hearing Protection

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: SB103006

    Hearing loss is the number one disability of soldiers returning from todays battlefield. Issued hearing protection devices are often not worn by soldiers because it can reduce situational awareness through undesired acoustic attenuation. Current passive hearing protection options cannot offer protection against high intensity noise such as gunshots and explosions while allowing users to hear every ...

  2. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  3. UV/Vis Low-Dispersion Confocal Objective

    SBC: H NU PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB102001

    Confocal microscopy has become the tool of choice for sub-micron imaging, particularly of biological tissues, and is being used as a diagnostic tool in other disciplines as well. Broadband optics are required to collect emitted or scattered light throughout the visible and ultraviolet regions, with minimal spectral and temporal dispersion. The requirement to perform over a broad bandwidth encompas ...

  4. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  5. Self-Aware Planner Interface and Engine (SAPIEN)

    SBC: Archinoetics, LLC            Topic: SB072009

    Self-aware systems have three essential properties: they build empirical models of their own performance; they use those models to inform optimal plans of action; and they continually refine their models and plans based on the outcomes of their actions. Although engineers routinely build some degree of intelligence into the systems they design, an explanatory gap inevitably grows between what engi ...

  6. UV/Vis Low-Dispersion Confocal Objective

    SBC: H NU PHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB102001

    A detailed design is proposed to compare one and two mirror, parabolic and aspheric optics to achieve high numerical aperture, high-throughput, sub-micron resolution from 200 to 800 nanometers. An optimization phase will follow for the concept(s) that best satisfy the requirements. Predicted performance will be analyzed for the selected concepts including evaluation of point spread function, mod ...

  7. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

  8. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...
