  1. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: Phoebus Optoelectronics LLC            Topic: CBD11102

    We propose a metamaterial-enhanced microbolometer with strong absorption over a narrow band that is dynamically tunable over the 8-10 micron band. A single-layer photonic metamaterial consisting of a thin metal film perforated with a 2-D array of dielectric apertures will be deposited on an amorphous-Silicon layer acting as an absorber and bolometer. The metamaterial, in conjunction with planar di ...

  2. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Hyperspectral imaging systems acquire the spatial and spectral information of the image scene simultaneously, and thus find important applications in remote sensing, military surveillance, and target identification. Most contemporary hyperspectral imaging systems operate at UV/VIS/NIR (ultra violet/visible/near infrared) spectrums. However, in many cases, especially in military applications, (hype ...

  3. Multiplex Microsphere Assay for Botulinum Neutralizing Antibodies

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD11109

    Currently, the accepted standard experimental model for measuring protective efficacy against botulism is the Mouse Lethality Neutralization (MLN) assay. Botulism poisoning is a life threatening condition that is not only a public health concern, but could also be a potential biological weapon. With seven serotypes of botulinum neurotoxins, there is need for an alternative to the MLN assay due t ...

  4. Sensor Data Fusion

    SBC: INTERNATIONAL ASSOCIATION OF VIRTUAL ORGANIZATIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: MDA10001

    MDA seeks to maximize the utility of collected sensor data through a fusion architecture that provides an integrated view of the battlespace. IAVO proposes research and development of a fusion architecture, which employs novel algorithmic techniques using a foundation of sound stochastic theory, probabilistic inference methodologies and pattern recognition techniques to develop the iView2TM (Integ ...

  5. Innovative Sensor Packaging and Testing

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: MDA10024

    This proposal addresses the need for innovative test packaging to permit testing of new focal plane arrays, read-out integrated circuit designs and related components in a mission relevant environment. We address the middle stage development gap that exists between FPA prototype and sensor system testing to support an evolutionary capability-based acquisition model with spiral technology developm ...

  6. Ultra Low Power, Radiation Hardened, Reconfigurable Analog-to-Digital Converter

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: MDA10032

    The goal of this project is to develop an ultra low power (ULP), radiation hardened, reconfigurable analog-to-digital converter (ADC) in the 130nm Flexfet Independently Double Gated SOI CMOS process. Satellites include a large number of sensors which perform both generic system functions and specific mission needs. For these various sensors, the required resolution for the associated ADC may be ...

  7. A High-Throughput Blood Esterase Panel Assay

    SBC: AGAVE BIOSYSTEMS INC.            Topic: CBD10108

    Organophosphorus chemical warfare nerve agents (OP-CWA) are attractive to terrorist groups and rogue states as an inexpensive and accessible technology for chemical warfare. OP-CWA and organophosphate pesticides cause severe neurological symptoms and death by inhibiting the enzyme acetylcholinesterase (AChE); the resulting excess acetylcholine accumulates and overstimulates the human or animal bo ...

  8. Terahertz Signature Modeling for Kill Assessment and Warhead Materials Identification

    SBC: Applied Quantum Technologies            Topic: MDA09034

    Our Phase I study provided quantitative results that showed feasibility for scenarios of interest. It included both the details of signatures and the sensitivity for THz sensor systems with realistic parameters. In Phase II we will extend these results to create a non-scenario specific model that will serve as an interface with the intercept community allowing the capabilities of the THz to be o ...

  9. Innovative Waveforms and Related Signal Processing for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: Helios Remote Sensing Systems, Inc.            Topic: MDA09017

    The objective of this effort is to develop innovative waveforms and related signal processing algorithms that will improve the capability of missile defense radars in target detection, discrimination, and tracking, as well as reducing vulnerability to jamming and other countermeasures. We will demonstrate significant performance improvements by modeling and simulation. In addition, during the Ph ...

  10. Development of a High Strength Low Thermal Diffusivity Insulator Material

    SBC: C9 Corporation            Topic: MDA09012

    The C9 team proposes to exploit the success of the phase I effort by fabricating and doing full scale testing of the Throttling Divert and Attitude Control System(TDACS) Throat support for the Block IIA or Block IIB upgrades of the SM-3 Missile Defense system. The desired goal is to be production ready for BlockIIA which is currently in Critical Design Review with full scale testing in the 3rd qua ...
