  1. Phased Array Antenna on a Wafer

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    The ongoing explosion of microwave radar and communications systems calls for improvement in electronically scanned antennas (ESAs). However, current ESAs crafted from multiple individual elements are extremely expensive. Forming an antenna with integrated scanning and impedance matching elements on a single substrate using thin film technologies may decrease costs by up to two orders of magnitu ...

  2. Single Crystal Relaxor Ferroelectrics for High Performance Bio-Medical Ultrasound Transducers

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The TRP-SBIR project will address the synthesis and characterization of single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics for high performance bio-medical transducers. The ability to grow single crystals of various relaxor-based compositions with specific crystallographic orientations offers piezoelectric, dielectric and electro-mechanical properties not achieveable in ploycrystalline PZT ceramics. Limitati ...

  3. Voltage Tunable Ferroelectric Composites for Phased Array Radar

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I program will address the fabrication and testing of voltage variable dielectrics (VVD) in which the refractive index (n) can be E-field tuned providing electronic scanning in the microwave regions. In collaboration with Hughes' Radar Division, the manufacturing of large area composites based on the perovskite Barium Strontium Titanate (BST) will be integrated into a continuous t ...

  4. High Performance Multilayer Actuators: Templated Crystal Growth

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I program will address the fabrication and testing of pseudo single crystal relaxor ferroelectrics (PMN:PT) for high performance electromechanical actuators. In collaboration with Innovation Powder Technology, Inc. the crystallographic orientation of solid state grown PMN:PT will be controlled using hydrothermally synthesized perovskite PbTiO3. The use of large 5-10 micron platel ...

  5. High Power Density Fuel Cell for Vehicle Applications

    SBC: FuelCell Energy, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Operating temperatures for phosphoric acid fuel cells have been steadily increasing in the quest for higher efficiency. The temperature increase has been made possible by the use of more stable electrode catalyst and other fuel cell materials. This makes it possible to consider reforming methanol fuel internally, thereby improving efficiency and simplifying power plant design. This change eliminat ...

  6. Nanophase Composites as a Route to Pratical High ZT Polymer Thermoelectric Materials

    SBC: Integrated Cryoelectronics,            Topic: N/A

    Some polymers exhibit Seebeck coefficients that are 100 to 1000 times higher than those of semiconductors used in today's thermoelectric devices. Unfortunately these polymers have low electrical conductivity that results in a figure-of-merit, ZT, that is much lower than do the conventional semiconductors. Attempts to increase the conductivity of polymers by doping or micro particle addition have ...

  7. An Interactive System for 3-D Modeling from Videotape

    SBC: K2T, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    K2T, Inc. proposes to design and demonstrate an interactive system capable of reconstructing 3-D models from ordinary video image sequences. Although many people are currently working in the field of shape from motion, no one has yet developed a commercially viable system for reconstructing 3-D models from videotape. The objective of this Phase I research is to design such a system. The system ...

  8. A Novel Design for a System of Networked Unattended Sensors

    SBC: K2T, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    K2T proposes the development of a novel concept for using arrays of low-cost, internetted, unattended sensors to detect, localize, and classify targets in ground and littoral environments with the goal of increasing battlefield awareness. The concept will initially combine imaging, acoustic, and location sensors with local signal processing and communications capabilities; but can be expanded to ...

  9. Visualizing Cyberspace: Search, Analysis, and Display of Information

    SBC: MAYA DESIGN            Topic: N/A

    The accessibility of information on the Internet could be dramatically increased by providing users with meaningful semantically rich visualizations of the relationships among diverse information sources and data. However, most attempts to visualize the web have focused on its superficial structure rather than the meaning of its contents. Similarly, most current software tools provide only narro ...

  10. Low-Power, Non-Invasive Physiological Sensor for Remote Usage

    SBC: Nanomaterials Research LLC            Topic: N/A

    Techinical Abstract: A physically small, rugged, low power, light weight X-ray imaging sensor, readout, display and transmission system is proposed which will provide an effective means for X-ray screening in General Radiology, Radiology and Fluoroscopy, Angiograpgy and Cardiology for both commercial and military applications. The system will consist of a novel flat panel R-ray detector, a high ...
