  1. Extended Refreshable Tactile Graphic Display (with Linear Actuation Array)

    SBC: E L I A Life Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    New innovative technology for the visually impaired has been developed by NIST. If commercialized, it would provide refreshable tactile graphical information to the visually impaired, enabling them to compete on a more equal footing in the workplace and the education system.

  2. CVD-based Polytype Controlled SiC Nanowire Growth

    SBC: GENESIC SEMICONDUCTOR INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel chemical vapor deposition (CVD) based step-flow epitaxy process is proposed for controllable growth of SiC nanowires with high polytype integrity. SiC nanowires will be grown in a modified commercial high-temperature CVD reactor, used by industry for growing high-quality SiC epitaxial thin films. Different polytypes of SiC nanowires will be grown by choosing appropriate substrate materials ...

  3. An Elevated-Temperature Nanobalance Based on Piezoelectric Shear Mode Resonators (quartz, gallium phosphate, and langasite)

    SBC: Masscal Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The work proposed will provide a demonstration of feasibility and specific design recommendations for building an elevated-temperature resonating crystal balance with nanogram sensitivity. The approach will build upon existing technology commercialized by Masscal for operating a QCM in a temperature-controlled calorimeter. Precise temperature control and new types of crystal sensors will be used t ...

  4. Innovative Fire Measurements Using Thermal Imaging

    SBC: CRITICAL IMAGING, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The most practical arrangement for investigating moving fires within a restricted space is to use a high- resolution stand off technique. One such method that fits this description is the use of a staring infrared (IR) sensing device (i.e. imager).

  6. Diamond Technology High Temperature Electronics Radiation Hardened Interceptor Communications

    SBC: AET, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T010

    The goal of this program is to develop high-speed interceptor communications solutions that are hardened to space and nuclear radiation, including high altitude nuclear explosions (HANEs). AET will design and develop lateral emission-based diamond integrated logic circuits that have been electrically tested, packaged, and characterized for temperature insensitivity and radiation hardness A lateral ...

  7. Advanced Radar Data Fusion- Multiple Input Multiple Output Sensor Acquisition (MIMOSA) System

    SBC: Andro Computational Solutions LLC            Topic: MDA06T003

    Radar targets provide a rich scattering environment that produces from 5-25 dB target fluctuations. The spatial dependence of target scattering means that targets produce essentially independent scattering returns when radiated from sufficiently different directions. Thus, if receivers are distributed over a wide enough area, which is the premise of the multiple input multiple output (MIMO) radar ...

  8. Solid State Hypergolic Chemical Leak Detector

    SBC: Applied Nanotech, Inc.            Topic: MDA06039

    The overall objective of the two phase SBIR program is to develop a hypergolic leak detector (HLD) that can be mounted on the outside of a missile canister which is able to detect rapid changes in concentration that signal leaks of hypergolic rocket fuels and oxidizers. In Phase I Applied Nanotech, Inc. (ANI) established that a solid state gated metal oxide sensors was sufficiently sensitive to p ...

  9. Aerodynamic Drag and Lift Characteristics for Irregularly-Shaped Intercept Fragments

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: MDA07016

    The focus of this proposal is the aftermath of a successful missile intercept, where the resulting fragments fall toward land or sea. This study will develop an approach to quantify shape parameters in a useful way to feed to a designed algorithm set governing lift and drag. The goal will be to enable trajectory analysis based upon lift and drag characteristics. Driving parameters such as the s ...

  10. Distributed Aperture Radar Signal Processing Algorithms, Waveforms, and Signal Processing

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: MDA07037

    The goal of this Phase I SBIR effort is to develop innovative techniques that exploit distributed apertures to defeat mainlobe jammers of MDA radar systems. Phase I will develop basic concepts for distributed aperture signal processing in this domain and establish their feasibility using a computer simulation model. A Phase II demonstration plan will be developed, with emphasis on a near real-time ...
