  1. 3D Silicon MIMD/SIMD Massively Parallel Processor

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Irvine Sensors proposes to use its 3D silicon chip stacking technology to provide the increase in packaging density required to support second-generation massively parallel computers. Using the third dimension to stack processor devices, promises to reduce substrate cost in direct relation to the number of processors stacked meeting the ten fold or more improvement in substrate costs by reducing t ...

  3. A Micro SAW Array Chemical Detector

    SBC: Femtometrics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Fieldable chemical sensing instruments must meet a variety of stringent specifications which are typically a function of the specific detection scenario. In many cases, meeting certain specifications can degrade the high performance characteristics originally identified for the chosen technology. For the majority of the fieldable instruments in use today, it is the size of the battery which dic ...

  4. A Passive-Polarization Rotator for Flexible Optical Displays

    SBC: Deacon Research            Topic: N/A

    We propose to prove the feasibility of building a waveguide polarization rotator to efficiently couple light from TE-polarized laser diode arrays to TM-polarized waveguide arrays. Our polarization rotator will be passive, can be integrated on the same substrate with electrooptic devices and is compact. Our demonstration will remove the key technical risk associated with efficiently coupling lase ...

  5. A Practical Variable Geometry Aero/Hydrodynamic Control Surface

    SBC: NIELSEN ENGINEERING & RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Nielsen Engineering & Research (NEAR) is proposing the development of a practical, variable geometry fluid mechanical control surface which offers reduced weight, complexity, power consumption, and cost as compared to other potential solutions. The complete system incorporates an array of surface pressure sensors to monitor the boundary layer state, control laws to provide feedback for real-time m ...

  6. A Scalable, Cutomizable MCM Design Process Manager

    SBC: INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Despite the fact that multi-chip modules (MCMs) are a critical dual use technology, the rapid commercialization of MCM-based systems depends on achieving an order of magnitude reduction in NRE costs and development time as well as assuring first pass success in MCM design. Hoever, data collected by MCM contractors reveals that the absence of proper design process management was the major barrier f ...

  7. Adaptive Antenna Processing for Cellular Base Stations

    SBC: VIASAT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A radical new approach to adaptive antenna processing, based on the emerging theory of per Survivor Processing (PSP), is proposed to enhance performance of cellular systems. This approach offers the opportunity to achieve large performance improvements (e.g. improved acquisition., and/or interference rejection) over conventional adaptive antenna array techniques when a large number of users diff ...

  8. Advanced Fiber Winding and Design Techniques

    SBC: Optiphase, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High accuracy angular measurements have been accomplished with fiber gyros having thermally compensated coils wound with PM fiber. When these types of coils are wound in small diameters, higher bending stresses, a greater number of fiber cross-overs, and reduced rotation sensitivity combine to degrade gyro perforamnce through increased bending losses and polarization crosstalk. These cause increas ...

  9. Advanced Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) Suppression Techniques for VHF-UHF Radar

    SBC: Signal Processing Technology,            Topic: N/A

    Since UWB-SAR systems operate in a frequency band populated by TV broadcasting stations, Radio Frequency Interference (RFI) is a major problem. The development of successful RFI suppression techniques for UWB radars is crucial for their operation in many geographical areas. In this proposal we outline several advanced RFI suppression techniques for UWB-SAR, which will be developed and evaluated ...

  10. Advanced Systems for Detecting and Localizing Mines or Submarines

    SBC: Vista Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Electronically steered phase arrays are ideally suited for rapid surface surveillance and sea-spike removal to detect exposed submarine periscopes and cruise missiles. Because of the limited space available on typical warships, the necessary aperature cannot be realized with conventional structures. A novel self-calibrating non-rigid structure is proposed to alleviate this problem. New surface ...
