  1. TerrAdapt: A system for autonomous terrain classification and terrain-adaptive driving

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A11aT033

    The Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Quantum Signal LLC propose to research and develop the TerrAdapt system for terrain classification and vehicle driving control. This work will result in fundamental research advances, but will be practical enough for application on today"s COTS vehicle platforms. The system will maximize vehicle mobility due to the following key features: 1) TerrAdap ...

  2. Cell Culture Approaches to Generating Brown Adipose Tissue for Autologous Transplantation

    SBC: ENERGESIS PHARMACEUTICALS, INC.            Topic: A11aT034

    Obesity and its associated metabolic complications including diabetes are becoming increasingly prevalent in the general population as well as in military personnel. Brown adipose tissue (BAT) is a major site of energy expenditure through thermogenesis, which is mediated by the mitochondrial uncoupling protein-1 (UCP1). Studies in animals over the last 30 years as well as recent data in humans str ...

  3. Foldable/Rollable High Efficiency Solar Cell Modules

    SBC: OPTICOMP NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: AF10BT05

    ABSTRACT: A new method for manufacturing thin, flexible, portable high efficiency III-V PV modules that can be folded and rolled. In particular, IMM3J cells are lifted-off their growth substrate and transferred to a polyimide blanket sheet holding up to a few hundred cells. They are fully encapsulated. The interconnects are made with novel use of electrically conductive adhesives and polymers. Th ...

  4. RF Microplasma for Ozone Generation

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT08

    ABSTRACT: Ozone generation for decontamination systems has been around for many decades but systems, such as dielectric barrier discharge (DBD), are not suited to field use and the high voltages employed present serious safety problems. RF-driven microplasma devices are a unique technology for low-cost and low-power-voltage plasmas in vacuum and in air up to atmospheric pressure with a number of ...

  5. SWIR Image Sensor Based on SiGe Nanomembranes

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF10BT14

    ABSTRACT: With a cutoff at 1.6 & #956;m, high carrier mobility, and the potential to be integrated with silicon integrated circuits, Ge offers the possibility to achieve large size arrays and small pixel pitch for high sensitivity SWIR imaging near room temperatures. In addition, integrating SWIR image sensors on flexible substrates opens new applications and opportunities for night vision system ...

  6. Fused silica ion trap chip with efficient optical collection system for timekeeping, sensing, and emulation

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: The goal of this program is to develop an atom chip with a dual integrated and miniaturized optical and electromagnetic capability. We intend to develop a compact atom-chip-based system capable of producing and optically controlling and monitoring ultracold atoms with substantial reduction in complexity, size, weight and power consumption over the present state of the art. As part of ...

  7. Miniature Quantum Gas System based on an Atom Chip with Integrated Optical Micro-Cavity

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: AF10BT17

    ABSTRACT: In the proposed work, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) will team with MIT to develop a chip-based spin-squeezed atomic clock with a fractional frequency stability below the standard quantum limit. This will be accomplished by the development and fabrication of an atom chip that includes an integrated optical micro-cavity for confinement, imaging, and readout of the trapped cold atomic ense ...

  8. Security through Component-based Isolation Framework (SCIF)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT18

    ABSTRACT: Networked PCs are critical to the success of data-based missions, and the complex software they execute is both the source of their power and their prime area of vulnerability. Applications and services are often composed of multiple software components developed by different vendors or open source communities, who may in turn incorporate components developed by another tier of vendors. ...

  9. High-Power, Room-Temperature Interband Cascade Laser Optimization

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF10BT20

    ABSTRACT: Maxion Technologies, Inc, and the State University of New York at Stony Brook propose to develop a fundamental understanding of the principles of operation of interband cascade (IC) lasers and to use that understanding to overcome present-day limitations of IC lasers and thereby design lasers that are capable of watt-level performance in the 3V4-fYm wavelength band. Our innovation is t ...

  10. Selective Oxidation of Heterocyclic Amines

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: AF10BT25

    ABSTRACT: The ability to oxidize organic functional groups in a selective manner is of major importance in preparing compounds of interest to the Air Force and DoD. This is particularly critical in the preparation of high energy density compounds and fuels. Heterocyclic ring systems that contain both nitro and amino groups have been found to be an important class of compounds that are useful in ...
