  1. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social media is an increasingly important way for people to communicate, but interpreting the large and complex social networks that emerge from social media is challenging. A promising approach is to build synthetic networks based on realistic behaviors that mimic the form and structure of real networks, and then infer behaviors that underlie the real networks from the models used to generate the ...

  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. Tactical Telehaptic Communication (HAPTAC)

    SBC: Mide Technology Corporation            Topic: SB082025

    Communication between soldiers on the battlefield is currently limited to voice and hand signaling. However, the realities of combat, including loud noises and visual obstructions, degrade these communications modalities. The U.S. Department of Defense is interested in the use of tactile human interfaces as a supplemental communications channel between soldiers. A field-deployed haptic communica ...

  4. Low Temperature Diffusion Bonding of Semiconductor Devices

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: NSFTopic1

    Laser diodes (LD) have many desirable properties, e.g. small size and high electrical-to-optical efficiency. For ease of use, most applications require coupling the LD photons to an optical fiber. Attaching the LD-die to a heat-sink is a key packaging procedure. The heat-sink material is generally copper since it is the lowest thermal-resistance metal but its CTE (coefficient of thermal expans ...

  5. Advanced Low Thermal Resistance, Large Heat Capacity Coolers For Semiconductor Devices

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: OSD05D03

    There is a critical need for revolutionary approaches for thermal management of 21st century semiconductor devices and hardware, such as advanced high performance computers, high-power laser diodes and solar cells for the conversion of sun light to renewable energy. The one limiting factor for all of the above extremely important and compelling technologies is waste heat management that can remove ...

  6. Wavelength-Beam-Combined Diode Laser Pumps for High-Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: SB103005

    There is a compelling need for scaling fiber lasers and amplifiers to higher power and energy for industrial and military applications. The primary scaling roadblock today is the very limited brightness of diode laser pumps. We propose to produce the highest brightness diode laser pump sources for fiber lasers demonstrated to date. The Phase II deliverable laser will be a compact 5 kW diode laser ...

  7. Co-site Interference Mitigation for VHF/UHF Communications

    SBC: MAGIQ TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N08093

    In our Phase I SBIR MagiQ Technologies demonstrated significant performance advancements in co-site interference cancellation using an optical signal processing approach where we showed ~ 65 dB cancellation of four interferers in the JTRS band. The method exploits the broadband linearity of optical components. In Phase II of this program we propose to further develop the by demonstrating multista ...

  8. Social Platform for an ISR Collaboration Environment (SPLICE)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    Despite technical advances to intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) capabilities, intelligence analysts in the theater cannot achieve true multi-INT exploitation and cross-cueing due to the stove-piped nature of fielded ISR systems which limits effective collaboration among analysts. Current ISR systems: (1) force human-to-human interaction to be the primary method to discover relev ...

  9. High Power All-Solid-State 4- Micron Source

    SBC: SCIENCE RESEARCH LABORATORY, INC            Topic: N02207

    Science Research Laboratory proposes to develop a pulsed, tunable mid-IR source with average power greater than 55 watts and high pulse repetition frequency (20 kHz). The program is divided into a baseline and two options. In the baseline program we will develop a continuous-wave laser operating at a wavelength of 2.1 microns with a power of approximately 120 watts. In the option programs, the 2.1 ...

  10. STEM Solar Explorations

    SBC: Diversified Painting & CO            Topic: N/A

    Purpose: The need for all students to be well prepared in science has been well documented. The purpose of this project is to develop a solar learning lab platform to apply learning in the area of energy science. Project Activities: The researchers will design curricula materials, multi-media video clips, lesson plans, student activities, assessments, and a back-end system to house data generated ...
