  1. Cost-effective Optical Correlator for Security Applications

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Pattern recognition systems using optical correlation are being developed. The optical correlator is a powerful tool since it simultaneously processes large data arrays. This capability reduces data handling and process control, makes the system less susceptable to obstruction and increases throughput. An optical correlator is also a phase sensitive detector. It can read an optical phase mask ...

  2. Small Lot Repair/Manufacture of Microcircuit Boards by Laser Deposition

    SBC: Cm Consulting            Topic: N/A

    The final prototype of the Microcircuit Board Repair apparatus will be capable of laying down or lifting metal strips with micrometer dimensions. Under real time computer control, the translation stages will be fully automated or manually controlled. The end user will monitor the process in real time using a camera attached with the source. Laying down the metal lines will be done using Laser C ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Heterostructure Acoustic Charge Transport (HACT) Spatial Light Modulators (SLMs) for 3-D Parallel Optical Memory Interconnects

    SBC: Materials Technologies Corporation            Topic: N/A

    This proposal focuses on the development of heterostructure acoustic charge transport (HACT) Spatial Light Modulator (SLM) structures, which potentially address a larger number of pixels with substantially fewer interconnects, as input and output devices for a 3-D volume optical memory. Unlike other types of SLMs, HACT addressing of a 10(6) pixel array requires only 3x1024 interconnects in place ...

  6. Extensible Beamformer for Portable Imaging Sonar

    SBC: Q-DOT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Q-DOT proposes to develop a unizue, lower-power, low-cost beamformer for portable imaging sonars. The original two chip set will form 100 beams from 100 input channels. A 0.3 cm2 BiCMOS chip comprises a low noise amplifier (LNA), a time-gain control (TGC), an apodizer and a Delta-Signma modulation (ADC) for each channel. A 0.66 cm2 CMOS chip accepts 100 digital input channels and produces 100 d ...

  7. A Two-Dimensional Avalanche Photodiode Array Suitable for Near IR LADAR

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    SMD proposes the design and fabrication of a two-dimensional APD array. A novel APD array is proposed which requires low bias voltages, thus making it compatible with both CMOS and CCD multiplexer designs. The on-chip CMOS/CCD circuitry will allow for multiplexing of a large number of pixels to a single output. Further, each pixel in the APD array will have its own range detection circuitry allo ...

  8. Porous Sol-Gel Derived Ceramic Release Agent

    SBC: TPL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Breathable release coatings that can withstand processing conditions up to 750F are needed for use on ceramic tooling. In situ removal of volatiles in solvent-based composite processing is a critical issue that will enable production of high quality parts at lower cost per part. Current release coatings meet neither the temperature nor the solvent transport requirements of solvent-based composit ...

  9. Advanced Development Program for a Lightweight, Rechargeable "AA" Zinc-Air Battery

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Those battery systems that are currently readily available (lead-acid and nickel-cadmium), as well as those that are only now becoming a vailable in limited sizes and capacities (nickel-metal hydride and lithium-ion), can provide ample power for most portable equipment applications but the energy density/specific energy performance often resultsin inadequate run times. In contrast, the zinc-ai ...

  10. Low Cost, Lightweight, Rechargeable Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Yardney Technical Products, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Yardney Technical Products proposes to develop low cost, long life, safe and environmentally benign lithium-ion batteries ideal for applications sensitive to operational and disposal costs as well as safety andperformance criteria. Phase I of the proposed project will focus on the selection and development of battery materials. A lithiated manganese oxide will be selected as an active cathode ma ...
