  1. MWIR Spatial Light Modulators for Hyperspectral Image Projectors

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed effort is to build a high resolution, high speed spatial light modulator (SLM) to be used in infrared (IR) spectral projectors. An IR spectral projector produces programmable spectra by dispersing light onto a programmable array, currently digital micromirror devices (DMDs), which either transmit or block selected components of the light. the light is then recombined to form complex s ...

  2. 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.

  3. 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 ...

  4. Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KAC) System for Multi-Kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Identify and study candidate architectures for supporting and cooling massive (~5 Kg) arrays of transition edge sensors, achieving hold times for one week at temperatures below 100mK.

  5. 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 ...

  7. Development of Improved Virtually-Imaged Phased Arrays

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple, compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA fabrication methods limit efficiency, spectral resolution, filter response, and spectral bandwidth. Precision Photonics proposes to use its enhanced optical fabrication capabilities to build advanced VIPA protot ...

  8. 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).

  9. Vehicle Intelligent Performance Enabled Retrofit (VIPER)

    SBC: 21ST CENTURY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: OSD07E10

    The United States has a mechanized military that relies heavily on fuel availability. Delivering large quantities of fuel is a logistical burden. Besides the cost of the fuel itself, we must transport it, store it, and protect it. Fuel convoys are large targets moving along predicable paths. They expose soldiers and contractors to great dangers, and are a favorite target for terrorist attacks. ...

  10. Ai1: A Cognitive Prosthetic to Support Independence in Executive Functioning for Soldiers with TBI

    SBC: ABLELINK TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: SB072011

    Very little research and development has been done to address the unique assistive technology needs of individuals with traumatic brain injuries. In response to the immediate need for executive functioning supports for soldiers with TBI/PTST, an all-in-one (Ai1) system is proposed to provide independent access to message recording, personal schedule maintenance and cellular telephones for soldier ...
