  2. Development of New Adaptive Polymer Lenses

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB092014

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to develop significantly improved adaptive polymer lenses (APLs) for use in a variety of imaging systems. APLs will be fabricated and characterized for focal length and optical properties. Electro-mechanical actuators will be investigated. An optical zoom system using the APLs developed on this contract will also be designed and included as part of the final r ...

  3. Novel Non-mechanical Liquid Crystal based Foveated Imaging System

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: SB093008

    A novel foveated imaging technology is proposed, suitable for integration into an urban surveillance system. The proposed technology has no moving parts has low power requirements and requires a single imaging camera. The technology exploits the beam steering capabilities of liquid crystal polarization gratings (LCPGs) which diffract light only into the m=±1 orders according to the handedness of ...

  4. Graded AlN/Al2O3 Precursor and Methods to Passivate Micro-Channel Coolers

    SBC: ELTRON RESEARCH & DEVELOPMENT, INCORPORATED            Topic: SB101014

    Commercially available micro-channel coolers for high power laser diodes utilize copper's high thermal conductivity and ability to be micro-machined. Unfortunately, these coolers suffer from flow erosion and corrosion by the cooling fluid. Copper's ability to conduct electrical charge furthers the corrosion process and requires the use of deionized water as the heat carrying fluid. These factors i ...

  5. Capturing Insights from Firefights to Improve Training

    SBC: HF DESIGNWORKS, INC            Topic: SB082036

    Despite continuous improvements in military tactics and technology, casualties still remain. Phase I examined the idea of the “first five firefights” to identify if Soldiers have an increased likelihood of becoming a casualty during the initial days of their tour. Research consisted of gathering and compiling Soldier fatality data, conducting interviews (individual and group) with Soldiers and ...

  6. Negative Refraction Superlattice SuperLens

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: SB072035

    This Phase II project is the continuation of the successful Phase I effort on developing new negative index metamaterials for future optics applications. The proposed technology will tackle those problems associated with existing metamaterial designs, including their need for using advanced nanofabrications, strong energy dissipation associated with the use of metals, and cost ineffectiveness, by ...

  7. Massively Distributed Problem-Solving (MDPS)

    SBC: MANAGEMENT SCIENCES INC            Topic: SB093004

    We propose a unique system for massively distributed social problem-solving that will enable large groups of individuals to form solutions to complex, multi-factor problems. Our minimalist framework, called the ePluribus Solver, will leverage the viral nature of communication in existing social networks to engage individuals in the problem solving process and allow them to develop their own emerge ...

  8. Robust Distributed GPS Apertures

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: SB091012

    The DoD is heavily dependent on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for worldwide military operations. The GPS signal is subject to a variety of potential degradations, such as path loss (e.g., foliated or indoor environments), multipath (e.g., urban canyon or in-building), and interference (intentional or unintentional). There are many military applications where a group of GPS users may operat ...

  9. Development of Robust, Effective, Inexpensive, Flexible Water and Oxygen Barriers for Flexible Organic Light-Emitting Diodes (FOLEDs)

    SBC: SUNDEW TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: SB101001

    This Phase I SBIR project deploys Atomic Layer Deposition based thin film encapsulation for environmentally durable Flexible Organic Light Emitting Diode (FOLED) displays. Particular challenges include extremely low Water Vapor Transmission Rates (WVTR) and Oxygen Transmission rates (OTR), high yield, stress and strain endurance, high transparency and low cost. FOLED displays versatility and prosp ...

  10. High-Power, Narrow Linewidth Laser Sources for Alkali Atoms

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: SB082017

    The purpose of this proposal is to produce high-power, narrow-linewidth (~1 MHz or less), robust, turnkey laser sources that will meet the requirements of emerging cold-atom sensors. The goal of this Phase II effort is to develop a frequency-agile diode laser system with an output power of 1000 mW. This single-laser source can be modulated with sidebands at up to 10 GHz for repumping operations, ...
