  1. Safe, Large-Format Lithium Ion Batteries for Aircraft

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: AF141071

    YTP will develop technology that provides a high performance, modular Li-ion battery with: redundant safety features, safer thin, metal case cell designs; fin/micro-channel thermal control system; and an evaporating fluid system that rapidly quenches failing cells to prevent thermal runaway and fratricide. The end goal of the proposal is making a lighter, longer lasting, less expensive, safer JSF ...

  2. Fabrication of aberration-free gradient index nonlinear optical materials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF141163

    ABSTRACT: A fast, 1-cm diameter cylindrical gradient index (GRIN) nonlinear optical (NLO) refractive index lens, with large radial linear and nonlinear optical index gradients in all three optical axes will be fabricated using ink jet printing (IJP). The goal is to demonstrate the ability to modulate the third-order susceptibility by 1000x over silica. To achieve the desired performance, existin ...

  3. High Index of Refraction Materials for Printed Applications

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF141173

    ABSTRACT: Using roll-to-roll (R2R) -compatible inkjet-print (IJP) deposition and nanoimprint (NI) photolithographic patterning methods, a series of passive and electro-optic (EO) -modulated waveguide structures will be fabricated and characterized. The measured data will be compared to modeled results and the information will be used to improve device designs. Modeling will also be used to demons ...

  4. Hybridization Techniques for Ultra-Small Pitch Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF141196

    ABSTRACT: High-yielding inkjet print (IJP) deposition technologies will be developed for hybridizing the ultra-small pitch semiconductor detector arrays and readout integrated circuits (ROIC). The goal is to develop a method, alternative to the thermocompression hybridization methods currently used, that can be used to hybridize high pixel density focal plane arrays (FPAs), with 5 micron, and sma ...

  5. Automated System for Holographic Lightfield 3D Display Metrology (HL3DM)

    SBC: Adi - Displays Consulting, LLC            Topic: AF141021

    ABSTRACT: Lightfield 3D displays are being developed to reduce viewer eyestrain normally found on stereoscopic displays caused by the mismatch of the focus and stereo vergence on the display. These lightfield or Field of Light Displays (FoLD) systems generate a light field by any of several approaches including holographic, volumetric, integral-imaging, and multiple-2D-depth-planes. The differen ...

  6. Mobile Motion Capture for Human Skeletal Modeling in Natural Environments

    SBC: APDM, INC.            Topic: AF141029

    ABSTRACT: Interest in tracking human movement has been motivated by the wide array of its applications in health care, military training, sports, and entertainment. Currently, there is no single motion capture technology that is perfect for every possible use. The most common method of tracking movement is based on optical motion analysis systems. However, these systems are costly, not portable, ...

  7. Rocket Propulsion Supporting Technology


    High speed fiber grating diagnostic systems may be used to measure the velocity, position and pressures associated propellant burning during a rocket motor firing. This Phase I SBIR is directed toward the demonstration of the feasibility of this type of system which may also be used to measure strain, pressure and moisture in the propellant region prior to firing.

  8. Solid State Night Vision Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF081007

    In Phase I, a 1280 x 1024 element InGaAs Solid State LLLTV (Low Light Level Television) Imager with 0.4- to 1.7-micron sensitivity will be developed to achieve visible (VIS) and short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) spectral range that is well matched to the nighttime sky irradiance. The extended spectral response (including the 1064 nm and 1550 nm) laser lines, allows the ability of the Solid State LL ...

  9. Development of High-Definition (HD), Low-Light-Level Detector

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF073043

    In this Phase I SBIR program, a low noise SOI CMOS high-definition (HD) low light level television (LLLTV) image sensor will be developed. The detector will be back-illuminated with a 300-micron thick silicon absorption region, for increased sensitivity and spectral-overlap with the night sky radiance. The imager will be configured with 1280 x 1024, 6-micron-square pixels, will operate at 60 frame ...

  10. Stand-Off Detection of Functionalized Nanoparticles

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF073047

    In this Phase I SBIR, the feasibility of a chemical, biological, or explosive (CBE) agent micro-taggant monitoring system will be demonstrated. In Phase I, existing CBE-taggants will be evaluated and compared to a novel, solar-insensitive, invisible, lanthanide oxide quantum dot nanocrystal microtaggant. The developed CBE-taggants will emit in the near-infrared (NIR) and shortwavelength infrared ...
