  1. 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 ...

  2. Ground Moving Target Indicator (GMTI) Radar Discrimination of Combatants versus Animals in Severe Clutter

    SBC: Mustang Technology Group, L.P.            Topic: SB082019

    During the Phase I program, Mustang engineers collected radar data on dogs, cattle and other animals and compared it to existing human data to find extractable features and begin development of algorithms to discriminate between humans and animals. Phase I resulted in a rudimentary algorithm that can be used to discriminate humans and animals based only on the radar returns. In Phase II we propose ...

  3. Sampling and Reagent Technologies for Point of Care Diagnostics

    SBC: SPOT ON SCIENCES, LLC            Topic: SB111001

    HemaSpot is a single use device that uses a finger stick to collect and dry two drops of blood within a protective cartridge, enabling self-sampling from a remote location. The sample can be immediately shipped or stably stored at room temperature and is compatible with current diagnostic testing methods. HemaSpot allows anyone to take a blood sample at any time and any location. This enable ...

  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. Open Source Information Tactical Exploitation (ONSITE)

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE BASED SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB082026

    This Phase II SBIR effort will design and demonstrate enabling technology for fast text processing in the presence of noisy inputs while achieving semantically rich extractions of actionable knowledge from unstructured text data. The successful Phase I project demonstrated the ability to process ten gigabytes of raw text data in less than 15 minutes, the DARPA Phase I benchmark. The proposed Pha ...

  6. Advanced Development for Defense Science and Technology

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SB082007

    Emerging combat conditions require new multifunctional fiber materials, associated composite systems and processing techniques to be developed starting now. As envisioned, these materials cannot be based on incremental gains made using current technology, but major leaps forward arising from completely new fiber technologies. TRI/Austin recently conceived of a novel material, which it believes i ...

  7. Design and Fabrication Techniques for 3-Dimensional Integrated Circuits

    SBC: GOOFYFOOT LABS LLC            Topic: SB091008

    The 3-D integration of systems through monolithic wafer stacking is an emerging technology that can alleviate power, delay, and area problems for digital circuits and can enable a host of new applications in the system on a chip design space. Currently, CAD tools for 3-D integration are severely lacking stagnating potentially explosive growth of the technology. GoofyFoot Labs proposes TESI3d, a ...

  8. A Nanocomposite, Regenerable, High Capacity CO2 Sorbent

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: SOCOM10002

    SOCOM is seeking an innovative solution for a simpler, high capacity scrubber to reduce the levels of CO2 in underwater breathing apparatus and re-breathers. Existing CO2 scrubbers are absorbent based and suffer from slow reaction rates under pressure, at colder temperatures, and under heavy breathing, as well as limited CO2 capacity and the dangers of a caustic cocktail if the scrubber floods. ...

  9. AURA – Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect

    SBC: 21ct, Inc.            Topic: SB101002

    Intelligent Tutoring Systems (ITSs) functions as virtual tutors that adapt to student responses. Such ITSs, however, do not yield student learning improvements equivalent to students tutored by human instructors. Ascertaining Un-Reported Affect (AURA) is a closed-loop, platform-independent “front-end” for informing ITSs with near real-time inferences of student engagement and affect during lea ...

  10. Software Architecture for Navigation Devices Enabling Flexible Addition of Aiding Sensors

    SBC: 5-D SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: SB101011

    The Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency (DARPA) is seeking a software architecture that allows new and advanced navigation sensors to be integrated with an existing navigation system. To demonstrate this technology, DARPA desires a design for a personal navigator leveraging this technology that is capable of providing a location fix with an accuracy of 10 meters 3D rms. This navigator needs ...
