  1. Photovoltaic Cells for Very High Altitude Very Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: 4POWER LLC            Topic: SB072043

    This proposed Phase II program will deliver a lightweight triple-junction solar cell that eliminates the current-matching bottleneck of current state-of-the-art InGaP/GaAs/Ge cells on Ge. This will be achieved by constructing a triple junction structure on the lattice constant of SiGe, allowing the integration of semiconductors with bandgaps that are optimized for the best possible triple-junctio ...

  2. Peregrine Airspace Protection System for Denying Small UAV Intrusion

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: SB082002

    Aerophysics, Raytheon Missile Systems, and Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI) have teamed to provide an innovative solution that will detect, track, and neutralize small UAVs. The system, termed Peregrine, is a RADAR-cued active/passive IR countermeasure based on the Quiet Eyes turret from Raytheon. Peregrine will use unique RADAR signal processing techniques to ID the Doppler return of sma ...

  3. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    There is a Department of Defense need for a persistent, mobile power generating capability to service offshore bases and other temporary or mobile installations. In order to facilitate both persistence and mobility, the present concept is of a free floating wind turbine platform, convertible from generating mode to transit mode. Challenges to design of this concept include stability, seakeeping, c ...

  4. Mission Assured Networking (MAN)

    SBC: DANIEL H. WAGNER ASSOCIATES, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB082058

    Daniel H. Wagner proposes to explore and develop the method and the mathematics by which information and networks can be dynamically evaluated to minimize the transmission or display of redundant, low-value data while assuring that high-value information and subsystems are available. To do this, we propose to develop a non-probabilistic measure of value that encompasses all possible aggregates of ...

  5. Transformational Close Air Support

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082061

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of developing an HMMWV based Vertical Unmanned Aircraft System (VUAS) with laser designator and target geo-referencing capability to provide Close Air Support (CAS). Shoulder fired missiles have pushed US aircraft so far away from the CAS customer that he needs to find a replacement for the aircraft. As CAS aircraft stand off farther from the sma ...

  6. Detecting and Tracking Multiple Moving Objects from a Moving Platform

    SBC: DRAGONFLY PICTURES, INC.            Topic: SB082029

    Research is proposed to investigate the feasibility of a novel tracking algorithm that uses spatial context to reason about long term intentions. While it is hard to fully anticipate a person's behavior, we can generate a set of reasonable hypotheses about it by selecting a number of high-level goals for known persons (e.g., a civilian goes to a store or home, a soldier searches for cover, a biker ...

  7. High Power Density TAG Motors for Hybrid Electric Air Platforms

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082011

    The project aims to develop a strategy for a dramatically lighter and more efficient electric motor, with initial emphasis on a 7 hp class, 12” diameter fan for VTOL UAVs. For this, D-STAR is proposing a new motor architecture that combines and enhances the best features of contemporary motor architectures. For the Phase 1, the project tasks include : preliminary design and layout of the TAG Mot ...

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

    SBC: ELKA PRECISION, LLC            Topic: DLA07001

    This Phase II program achieves high accuracy internal grinding of small precision components using an ultra-high accuracy and ultra-high speed hydrostatic spindle with high frequency axial oscillations of the rotating shaft. This is especially valuable when high volume production is combined with high accuracy requirements and when difficult to grind materials are used. This approach is the only w ...

  9. Coherently Synchronized Distributed Signal Generation

    SBC: EMAG TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: SB082050

    EMAG Technologies is proposing to develop a hierarchical, heterodyne, salphasic clock distribution network for the purposes of synchronizing spatially distributed independent oscillators. A low-cost, precise, clock distribution architecture such as the one we are proposing can be used to synchronize hundreds to thousands of distributed processors, radios, or data samplers with sub-picosecond accur ...

  10. MISARO- MeetPeoplePlaces(tm) Inference for Stability and Reconstruction Operations

    SBC: BASHPOLE SOFTWARE, INC.            Topic: SB091003

    Several geosocial inference concerns currently limit military stability and reconstruction operations. Contact lists are outdated, vendor history is not maintained, and coordination delays are common. In this Phase I SBIR project for DARPA, Bashpole Inc. will design and demonstrate the feasibility of MISARO, a web-based platform system to improve the process of finding the right people among milit ...
