  1. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    Modern computer systems often incorporate multiple computational devices such as conventional processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized accelerators, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Programmers are able to exploit these new architectures for improved performance and reduced power consumption, but at the cost of increased programing complexity. Further complicating matte ...

  2. Direct Plasma Production from Electric Solid Propellant for High Velocity Launch Systems

    SBC: Digital Solid State Propulsion, Inc            Topic: SB112002

    As an alternative to near-obsolete double-base or triple-base propellants, Digital Solid State Propulsion (DSSP) is developing Electric Solid Propellants (ESP) as a safe, green, higher performance highly manufacturable alternative for high velocity electro-thermal-chemical (ETC) gun rounds. These electric energetic materials are inherently safe, with ignition only possible via the sustained suppl ...

  3. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  4. Machine Tool Genome Project

    SBC: MANUFACTURING LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: SB102005

    The objective of this research is to enable pre-process milling parameter selection for"first part correct"production. In the proposed solution the Receptance Coupling Substructure Analysis (RCSA) approach will be used to couple the measured spindle-machine dynamics to models of the tool and holder and predict the assembly"s dynamic response. Given this information, frequency/time-domain algorithm ...

  5. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  6. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  7. Universal Video Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: ST071009

    This Phase II proposal intends to design and develop a robust wireless video image sensor system capable of long term reconnaissance and surveillance deployment. Video images of targeted object would be captured via an all-weather, low-light, high resolution camera and broadcast to locations world-wide through satellite communication transceivers. Command centers as well as tactical patrols near t ...

  9. Low Cost, High Resolution, Pressue Mapping System for the Prevention of Pressure Ulcers

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N/A

    Pressure ulcers are a serious medical problem with annual treatment costs over $1 billion dollars. While the exact etiology involves a complex combination of factors, it is generally accepted that prolonged pressure to soft tissues results in discrete areas of acute ischemia. If the pressure is not relieved and the blood supply restored in a critical length of time, endothelial cell damage will re ...

  10. FEASIBILITY TECHNOLOGIES TO ENHANCE JOB DEVELOPMENT, JOB MODIFICATIONS, OR JOB OPPORTUNITIES FOR DISABLED INDIVIDUALS

    SBC: Nexus Applied Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    COMPUTERS ARE WIDELY USED AS WORKSTATIONS IN TECHNICAL AND BUSINESS APPLICATIONS. THE JOBS ASSOCIATED WITH WORKSTATIONS REMAIN UNAVAILABLE TO MOST OF THE SEVERELY HANDICAPPED POPULATION BECAUSE THEY REQUIRE NORMAL DEXTERITY IN ONE OR BOTH HANDS TO CONTROL THE KEYBOARD AND MOUSE OR OTHER POINTING DEVICE. WORKSTATIONS ARE BASED ON AWIDE VARIETY OF HARDWARE AND SOFTWARE PLATFORMS, MAKING MODIFICATION ...
