  1. PZT Ceramic Fiber Process for High Performance Actuators

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMETRICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Piezoelectric ceramics in sensors have achieved substantial market penetration. These parts are used widely for heat and climate control, hydrophones, flow sensors, medical and industrial sensing and accelerometers but they have been unsuccessful in gaining significant use in actuators. It generally is felt that material restrictions, precluding development of actuator-sized displacement strokes ...

  2. Chemical Analysis in a Planar Geometry: Elements of a Functionally Integrated System

    SBC: BIOARRAY SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    Bio Array Solutions (BAS) proposes to apply its novel platform technology of light-controlled Electrokinetic Assembly of Particles near Surfaces (LEAPS) to develop an analytical system in a planar, "on-chip" format. Combining AC (and/or DC) electric fields with interactive light control, LEAPS provides a tool set of fundamental operations to control the transport and positioning of particles and ...

  3. Materials for Printing Electronic Components

    SBC: Partnerships Limited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I program is to demonstrate the technical feasibility of functional materials that can be applied by a simple print-and-heat process at temperatures below 400 C to create electronic components on a variety of substrates. The technology to be demonstrated is an extension of the existing PARMOD process from metallic conductors to resistors, capacitors and inductors based ...

  4. A Micro SAR Sensor for Small UAVs

    SBC: Gorca Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A synthetic aperture radar (SAR) micro sensor of extremely low weight and power, and small size is proposed. The sensor offers a low-cost, all-weather/all-visibility-conditions high-resolution imaging capability from a small UAV to individuals and small units for surveillance and targeting purposes. In addition to being able to see through smoke, fog, etc. and its around-the-clock mission capabi ...

  5. A Lightweight Radar for Detecting Low Altitude Airborne Targets from an Aerostat

    SBC: Gorca Technologies            Topic: N/A

    A lightweight, low-cost radar for detecting low-altitude airborne targets from a lighter-than-air airborne platform is proposed. The sensor offers an all-weather, all-visibility-conditions MTI and tracking capability for situation awareness and the possible activation and guidance of counter measures. A special proprietary microstrip phased array antenna concept coupled with a novel radar config ...

  6. Reactive Nanoparticles as Destructive Adsorbents for Biolog

    SBC: NanoScale Materials, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this Phase I is to demonstrate the use of Reactive Nanoparticles (RNP) for the decontamination/sterilization of biological agents and their mimics. Recent studies have shown that RNPs are very effective for chemical agent decontamination at ambient or higher temperature. Examples include paraoxon, VX, half mustard and HD. RNPs themselves are generally made of non-toxic magnesiu ...

  7. Advanced Piezoelectric-Positioner Controller for High-Speed Scanning Probe Microscopy

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

    This SBIR Phase I project will investigate the feasibility of an improved control strategy for piezoelectric positioners used in scanned-probe microscopes (SPMs) to increase their speed and reliability for nanocharacterization. Rapid nanocharacterization requires fast motion of the scanned piezo probe with sub-Angstrom vertical resolution and with frequent rapid changes in its axial position. Se ...

  8. Development of a Low Light Level Camera with a High Density Focal Plane Array for Wide Field of View Applications

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N/A

    It is well known that Gen III image intensifiers based on Negative Electron Affinity (NEA) photocathodes and micromechanical plates suffer from a major limitation of having the long wavelength cutoff limited only to about 950 nm. For that reason, it has poor modulation transfer function and correspondingly lower performance in starlight and in the overcast starlight levels. To develop a new type ...

  9. A High Performance Telemaintenance System for Support and Analysis

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N/A

    Princeton Electronic systems (PES) proposes to develop a high performance telemaintenance system for DoD logistics needs. The proposed system can be used for collaborative troubleshooting and maintenance of the fielded equipment by using internet as the primary communication medium. It will enable instant access of experts anywhere in the world for solving difficult field maintenance problems. ...

  10. High Performance Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to design, demonstrate and develop highly stable, single-mode vertical cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs) operating at 1.55¿m. The large free spectral range (FSR) of vertical cavities implies that VCSELs can operate inherently in a stable single-mode. Also, they can be easily fabricated to emit low-divergence circular beams. In Phase I, we will deliver individual VCSELs opera ...
