  1. Superconducting Nanowire Single-Photon Detectors

    SBC: Active Optoelectronics            Topic: SB141001

    Our objective is to design and build a compact system that provides turnkey readiness for commercial and defense use of SNSPDs. Conventional SNSPDs face several limits that lead to tradeoffs between detection efficiency, bandwidth, dark count rate, jitter and operating temperature, and therefore prevent simultaneous realization of DARPA desired parameters in one device. We propose that amorphous N ...

  2. Deep UUV Deployed Vector Sensor System

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06145

    The proposed research "Deep UUV Deployed Surveillance System" will identify the requirements and formulate a conceptual design for a new wide area underwater surveillance that exploits the unique attributes of deep submergence environments to detect and track atmospheric, seismic and acoustic observations. The effort will address the noise, propagation and geophysical properties of acoustic liste ...

  3. Mobile Offshore Platform for Wind Turbine Power Generation

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: SB082056

    The Department of Defense (DOD) would benefit from a persistent mobile power generating capability to support global deployments, remote basing, and disaster relief. Eliminating the need for fuel transport over long distance, a towable floating wind turbine could provide a persistent power source. The most robust configuration for this concept is an unmoored free-floating design. Such a mobile fre ...

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

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082011

    DARPA SBIR solicitation SB082-011 seeks the design and development of high power density electric motors for hybrid electric air platforms, indicating a need for a prototype motor rated at 7 hp, weight less than 1.4 lbs, efficiency greater than 95% and operating at speeds less than 10,000 revolutions per minute (RPM), to be used for a ducted fan of less than 12 inches in diameter with a targeted s ...

  5. Innovative Approaches to Low Power, Sub-Threshold Electronic Circuits

    SBC: CAMGIAN MICROSYSTEMS CORP            Topic: SB082045

    This program proposes to demonstrate an ultra-low power design methodology and circuits for digital logic employing advanced dynamic voltage scaling (DVS) for asynchronous NULL Convention Logic (NCL) circuits operating in sub-threshold to super-threshold voltage regimes. The power supply voltages of logic block partitions will be independently set by on-chip voltage controllers based on the data p ...

  6. A Chip-Scale Sensor for High-Throughput Detection of Multiple Waterborne Pathogens

    SBC: REAL-TIME ANALYZERS, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB093010

    The overall goal of this proposed program (through Phase III) is to develop a chip-scale assay that can detect, identify, and quantify the presence of Category A (or B) bioagents in water at the required sensitivity (e.g. 400 B. anthracis spores or 15 µg of ricin per liter water) within 10 minutes. During the Phase I program feasibility will be demonstrated by 1) functionalizing silver particles ...

  7. Open System Manufacturing of Large Sensing/Weapons Platforms

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: SB102005

    In order to maintain our nation’s technological superiority on air, sea and land, we must respond quicker to emerging threats and reduce the cost of major sensing platforms. Every DoD platform developed nowadays contains at least one sensor, whether it be RF, EO/IR, or acoustic. In fact, in a lot of recent developments, the platform is built around the sensor and exists only to support the senso ...

  8. Passive Unitized Regenerative Fuel Cell for Very High Altitude Long Endurance Solar Aircraft

    SBC: Distributed Energy Systems            Topic: SB072041

    Practical use of a unitized regenerative fuel cell (URFC) for solar powered aircraft and similar applications has been limited due to a lack of proven technology designed for the mission requirements. The concept of the static feed unitized regenerative fuel cell, successfully demonstrated in the laboratory in the DARPA/NRL Water Rocket program and two NASA SBIR contracts provides a strong basis ...

  9. Light-Weight, Efficient and Quiet 10 hp Class Modular Heavy Fuel Engine

    SBC: D-Star Engineering Corporation            Topic: SB082010

    The project aims to develop a strategy for a small, modular heavy fuel engine in the 10 hp class, using scaled versions of a heavy fuel atomization system and combustion management systems previously developed by D-STAR, and by optimizing the engine design parameters to yield a successful engine that offers light weight, high efficiency and quiet operations. For the Phase 1, the project tasks inc ...
