  1. Efficient Quantum Frequency Conversion for Advanced Optical Communications

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: SB133001

    SRICO proposes to develop novel and practical methods to produce a flexible, robust and highly efficient, low-loss quantum frequency conversion device based on periodically poled lithium niobate (PPLN). The focus of the program will be to optimize the device design and operating parameters to achieve less than 1.5 dB end-to-end loss while maintaining nearly 100% conversion efficiency and reducing ...

  2. Processing of High-Strength Thick C-C Composite Structures using a One-Step Process

    SBC: WRIGHT MATERIALS RESEARCH CO.            Topic: SB133005

    Some aerospace vehicles components require structural materials with temperature stability near or above 3000?F. Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are prime materials for these applications because of their unique properties. Current C-C composites fabrication techniques are very expensive and time consuming. They usually require multiple infiltration and carbonization at high temperatures. Thick ...

  3. Adhesive Bond Strength of Bonded Structures in Confined Locations

    SBC: LSP Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB123001

    Aerospace manufacturers are using composite structures in aircraft and they are the future of aviation. Composites reduce weight and maintenance costs. Today, many composite structures are joined together with fasteners. However to meet future design r

  4. A Spectrally Dynamic Berth Light for Active Circadian Cycle Management

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082055

    A significant amount of personal injury and property damage as well as lost productivity could be avoided by speeding up the body’s adjustment cycle to new circadian schedules or re-synchronizing body schedules that have slipped or advanced. For the military, this problem is especially acute because the warfighters’ duties include dangerous equipment and a need for 24-hour operational readine ...

  5. Explosion-Proof Solid State Lighting Fixture for Extreme Environments

    SBC: Energy Focus, Inc.            Topic: SB082054

    Within harsh environment areas, Naval vessels require illumination. Incandescent based Symbol 48.2 explosion-proof fixtures are rated to operate in these spaces but are inefficient, resulting in unsafe fixture surface temperatures and unnecessarily high energy consumption. Under such extreme operating conditions, the lamps in the fixtures fail frequently, leading to high maintenance costs. Prod ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Lithium Niobate Optical Modulator for Microwave Filtering Applications

    SBC: Srico Inc            Topic: SB082039

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase II project develops novel materials processing and device design that extract the maximum possible performance out of the lithium niobate electro-optic material. The novel modulator device incorporates reconfigurable quasi-phase matching (RQPM) to produce an arbitrary RF bandpass response. The Phase I effort has laid a firm foundation for the creation ...

  8. Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational Environments

    SBC: MacroCognition, LLC            Topic: ST092002

    We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...

  9. Digital Analysis Computing Software Solutions for the Supply Chain

    SBC: ALTASIM TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SB092006

    Electrical circuit designers at Tier 2-4 suppliers to the Department of Defense (DoD) are currently using desktop computing to design their products. To improve the circuit design in the DoD supply chain, designers will need to be able to analyze their circuits with High Performance Computing resources. Designers seeking to innovate their circuits must have access to HPC facilities that maintain c ...

  10. 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 ...
