  2. Nanoelectrokinetic, Label-free Sensor for Toxic Industrial Chemical Detection

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB072001

    We propose to develop a novel nanofluidic, label-free sensor to detect the presence of ultra-low levels of Toxic Industrial Chemicals (TICs) in aqueous environmental samples. The envisioned handheld sensor will be hand-portable, be ruggedly constructed, support remote operation and be UAV-mountable. Our sensor exploits novel features of AC electrokinetics, made possible only when the channel dimen ...

  3. Nanocrystalline Inorganic Powder Molding

    SBC: Clear Align LLC            Topic: DLA07001

    The proposed Phase I development program is geared towards the production of low-cost optical components through a novel manufacturing process called Nanocrystalline Powder Molding (NPM). Military infrared imaging systems are required in the MWIR and LWIR for the purposes of surveillance and target acquisition. As these systems become more and more critical in the battlefield as well as in the c ...

  4. Design of Negative Index Metamaterials for the Visible Spectrum

    SBC: DIGITAL FUSION SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: SB072035

    Optical imaging systems are used extensively in everyday life for military and civilian applications. Just like any other technology there is always a push to improve the performance over what is the current state of the art. Unfortunately, all optical systems are constrained by the fundamental limit of diffraction. This constraint limits the resolution of a system to approximately half of the ...

  5. Information Delivery and Display for Shared Awareness in the Net Centric Battlespace

    SBC: Discovery Machine, Inc.            Topic: SB052009

    Discovery Machine, Inc. (DMI) proposes to create and extend technologies and methodologies for capturing knowledge from subject matter experts (SMEs). The expertise will be gathered in the form of graphical models of hierarchical task-decomposition networks (HTNs) and semantic networks (SNs). The modeling will be performed directly by the SMEs through the Discovery Machine Expertise Encoding and ...

  6. ULTRA HIGH SPEED AND PRECISION HYDROSTATIC GRINDING SPINDLE WITH AXIAL OSCILLATION OF THE ROTATING SHAFT

    SBC: ELKA PRECISION, LLC            Topic: DLA07001

    We propose to develop an ultra-high speed hydrostatic spindle with maximum speed of 120,000rpm and combine it with high frequency axial oscillations of about few kilohertz. Ultra-high speed hydrostatic spindle for internal grinding with axial oscillations of rotating shaft effectively combines advantages of hydrostatic spindles with the unique technological potential of high frequency axial oscil ...

  7. A Compact High-Resolution 3D Lidar for Serpentine Robots

    SBC: IMAGING MICROSENSORS, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    An innovative compact, high-resolution lidar is proposed for 3D visualization for serpentine robots. The sensor provides a spatial resolution of approximately 0.5 cm, or better, in all three dimensions at a maximum range of 2-3 m. Such a fine resolution can be used by a serpentine robot to navigate around obstacles and detect targets of interest. The proposed sensor offers a wide field of view and ...

  8. Advanced Low Cost Automated Manufacturing Technology for Prismatic Lithium Battery Cells (Discrete-Parts)

    SBC: LithChem Energy / Div. of TOXCO, inc.            Topic: DLA07001

    LithChem has designed an innovative low cost continuous automated manufacturing process for making prismatic lithium battery cells, the main cost (discrete-part) for lithium batteries. The process consists of three key pieces of innovative equipment: 1) a novel coater for continuously coating the electrodes which has been built; 2) a continuous automated assembly machine for combined cutting, wel ...

  9. Mid-infrared Fiber Laser Based on Super-Continuum

    SBC: OMNI SCIENCES, INC.            Topic: ST051008

    Infrared counter-measures require a mid-infrared laser operating between 2-5 microns with time-averaged powers of 5W and more. Omni Sciences, Inc.'s (OSI's) Mid-Infra-Red FIber Laser (MIRFIL) will generate continuous light over the mid-IR, 2-5 microns, with time-averaged power scalable to more than 5W. The MIRFIL is a practical super-continuum (SC) source using commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) la ...

  10. Opto-Mechanical Modeling of Low Cost, High Precision, Micro Components for Fiber Optic Gyroscopes

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB052002

    Previous investigations into the geometrical and polarization properties of spiraled bend insensitive optical fiber layers indicate that coils made of many such layers can potentially facilitate inexpensive, high accuracy fiber optic gyroscopes (FOG). The proposed research will assess the theoretical and empirical behavior of both spiraled layers and coils through both modeling and experimentatio ...
