  1. Compact, High Capacity Parallel Optical Memories

    SBC: Accuwave Corp.            Topic: N/A

    In this proposed SBIR program, Accuwave will investigate and demonstrate architectures for compact hologrpahic storage using materials and system innovations to reduce complexity and improve performance. Crosstalk, data formatting, input/output interfaces, and other relevant parameters will be characterized. Both wavelength and angle multiplexing, as well as its combination, will be used to prov ...

  2. HLA Federation Implementation Tools

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: N/A

    The Defense Modeling and Simulation Office (DMSO) has developed the High Level Architecture (HLA) as one of the principle components of a DoD-wide Common Technical Framework for modeling and simulation (M&S). Unlike previous distributed simulation technologies such as DIS and SIMNET, HLA provides federation developers, via the Object Model Template (OMT), the means to define the structure and for ...

  3. Analysis and Improvement of Trivalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Aluminum Alloys

    SBC: American Research Corporation of Virginia            Topic: N/A

    The trend toward replacement of highly toxic chemicals with less hazardous alternatives has created the demand for replacement of chromate conversion coatings for corrosion protection of aluminum alloys. Aluminum alloys are the predominate structural material used in aircraft because of their high strength-to-weight ratios, affordability and processability. Aluminum is subject to catastrophic fail ...

  5. Advanced Nickel-Metal Hydride Battery

    SBC: Mobile Energy Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Many DOD systems employ rechargeable batteries to supply power. Battery weight, volume, cycle life and cost are generally limited considerations in enabling satisfactory mission performance. Systems presently utilize Lead-Acid, Nickel-Cadmium, Nickel-Metal Hydride or Lithium-Iobatteries. The Nickel-Metal Hydride (Ni-MN) system is now under study as a superior candidate for many applications. El ...

  6. Liquid Crystal-Based Underwater Imager

    SBC: EMPIRICAL TECHNOLOGIES CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The contractor proposes a new approach to underwater imaging that directly converts a two-dimmensional acoustic pressure wave into an electronic requirements fo convential piezo-element arrays. The imager relies on the piezo-birefringent properties of a nematic liquid crystal panel that serves as both sensor and display. The capability of nematic liquid crystals has been established and publishe ...

  7. Development of a Commercial FOM for 3D Interactive Entertainment Applications

    SBC: Perceptronics Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Perceptronics and its team members, Litton Guidance & Control Systems and Infinity Multimedia, will demonstrate that the High Level Architecture (HLA) provides a viable approach for multi-participant entertainment applications and implement an HLA federation and a Federation Object Model (FOM) for this domain. A simple tennis-like game with both 2D and 3D visualization will be used as representat ...

  8. Advanced Tooling Manufacturing for Composite Structures (ATMCS)

    SBC: Fem Engineering            Topic: N/A

    Sheet metal products have made an indispensable place for themselves in our day to day lives. Light weight, good surface finish, low finished product cost, and relatively good formability are just few of the many features that make the sheet metal products so attractive. This includes all the product lines such as automotive, aerospace, appliance, construction, instruments, heating and ventilati ...

  9. HLA-Virtual Command Post

    SBC: LIONHEARTH TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Many simulations require tactical intelligence information and audio communication. This topic's thrust is to develop commercial applications that use the current C4I HLA constructs. A Virtual Command Post (VCP) has been desigend and build in response to an earlier solicitation and is being delivered as a proof-of-concept for CECOM's future battlefield visualization, planning and radio communica ...

  10. Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    In this proposal, we describe a novel approach for realizing a parallel, nonmechical, read/write interconnection for angle-multiplexed three-dimensional (3-D) optical memories. Our concept represents a significant first step required toward taking this critical memory technology from the laboratory and inserting it into operational systems. The concept utilizes novel optomechanical packaging and ...
