  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. 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 ...

  7. Low Cost Orbital Debris Removal System

    SBC: Wacari Group, LLC            Topic: N093223

    The proposed space tug concept proffers a cost-effective rocket stage and debris removal solution that eliminates the need for any physical contact between the spacecraft and the target object, thus eliminating costly precision control and maneuvering systems, the risks of collision with the target-object, and the possibility of elements breaking off the target-object. Furthermore, a novel and hi ...

  8. Compact high performance 360 degree foveated imaging systems

    SBC: Five Focal LLC            Topic: SB093008

    There is a strong need for improved panoramic imaging and situational awareness for many military and commercial systems. Security and border patrol systems demand greater panoramic viewing with the ability to zoom into potential threats for identification. Most importantly, improved situational awareness will help to protect our soldiers especially in complex battlefields such as urban environm ...

  9. Network Centric Tracking for Integrated UGS and UAV Networks

    SBC: NUMERICA CORPORATION            Topic: SB092008

    The use of unmanned assets both on the ground and in the air are proving effective as semi-autonomous ISR platforms. While unmanned ground systems (UGSs) can provide stable, close-in, and persistent capabilities, unmanned air vehicles (UAVs) provide flexibility for wide area search missions and geometrically diverse viewing angles for the sensors. The primary focus of this proposed research is to ...

  10. Programmable Optical Beam Former with 10 Nanosecond Reconfiguration Rates

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops low-cost optical beamscanners using fast binary amplitude modulators. The modulators are solder-bumped to silicon drive circuits which have a programmable architecture for rapid, flexible array addressing. The multiple quantum well (MQW) based modulators operate at 850-860 nm with a random access speed over 100 MHz---faster than any known scanner. Preliminary simulation an ...
