  1. Add/Drop Filters for High Speed Communications Using Wavelength Division Multiplexing

    SBC: Arroyo Optics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Arroyo Optics has developed an add/drop filter for wavelength division multiplexing which is expected to exhibit the following exemplary characteristics: high routing efficiency (99%), zero loss (< 0.1 dB), high rejection (< -50 dB), narrow bandwidth (1 nm) and low crosstalk (< -30 dB). This device paves the way for developing an entirely new class of optical components critical to high speed WDM ...

  2. Long Wavelength HgCdTe Focal Plane Development

    SBC: AVYD DEVICES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Avyd Devices proposes a Molecular Beam Epitaxy (MBE) growth based HgCdTe heterostructure photodiode approach to develop a technology capable of producing LWIR HgCdTe arrays with high performance, high tolerance to nuclear radiation, high uniformity, high operability, and high yield for use in low background space environments. The essential elements of the approach entail Heterostructure growth of ...

  3. High Thermal Conductivity Polymeric Adhesive

    SBC: Browne & Associates            Topic: N/A

    Increasing power levels in electronic systems require improved thermally conductive materials. While polymeric adhesives have the best economics and the lowest processing temperatures for electronic assembly, they have low thermal conductivity. Currently these adhesives cannot be used in the high power applications. As future heat transfer needs increase they will be used less and less. This propo ...

  4. Comprehensible Descriptions for Fast Processing of Image Data


    The proposed effort will apply advanced methods of hybrid learning to problems of detection and identification of sensory events (e.g., boost phase evens). Our approach aims at building a vision system capable of hybrid learning, in which symbolic (rule-based) and subsymbolic (neural network) strategies are integrated to achieve high efficiency and accuracy both in learning human comprehensible se ...

  5. Compact High-Torque Solid State Motor


    Ergo-Tech Systems Inc. and Advantage Quality Engineering Inc., propose to fabricate, test, and characterize a high-torque solid state motor during Phase I. Small high torque motors are needed and are of prime interest to the DOD, Space agencies and commercial industry. The few designs that are published in US Patents are plagued by problems derived from the absorption of the small steps by the com ...

  6. Compact Holographic Memory for Optical Correlations

    SBC: Holoplex            Topic: N/A

    We propose to build a compact holographic memory with a capacity of 5000 holograms. The proposed system will be built with components that are commercially available and/or are based on well developed technologies. We will focus on technical issues in packaging and integration of the system to achieve low error rate and good environmental stability. The entire memory can be readout in 1 second, gi ...

  7. High Performance Thermosetting Polyphenylene Adhesives

    SBC: Maxdem, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop a new series of thermosetting adhesives containing rigid-rod polyphenylenes for structural materials. The new adhesives will be used as non-outgassing bonding agents for advanced composites and for electronics applications. The purposes of the project are to explore the structure/property relationship, and to provide a new family of high performance thermoset adhesives; Recen ...

  8. Development of a Compact Electron Beam Accelerator

    SBC: MICROWAVE TECHNOLGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Microwave Technologies Incorporated is proposing the development of a very compact radio-frequency (rf) electron beam accelerator which appears to be well-suited for BMDO's directed energy applications. This novel concept employs a single short rf cavity operating in circular polarization to accelerate a low-energy ma ~netized pencil beam to energies that range from 2 to 10 MeV. The proposed accel ...

  9. Novel Surge Suppression Devices

    SBC: Oryx Technology Corp            Topic: N/A

    Voltage surge-induced electronic failures represent a multibillion dollar problem for the U. S. and world microelectronics industry. Typical sources of voltage surge are electrostatic discharge from the human body, line transients from parallel AC power fluctuations, and lightning strikes. In military and missile electronics there exists the particular threat due to electromagnetic pulse (EMP) wh ...

  10. Portable Infrared Measurement System

    SBC: Pacific-sierra Research Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Pacific-Sierra Research Corporation (PSR) proposes to design a portable instrument to determine the long wave infrared (LWIR) characteristics of any EO sensor. Such an instrument would be valuable in LWIR sensor flightline testing, production checks, and foreign material exploitation. This field/production instrument would automatically provide detailed performance information for CM vulnerability ...
