  1. A Large Size 3D Holographic Display with PR Polymers


    In this STTR project, Boston Applied Technologies, Inc. (BATi), teaming up with Prof. Di Bartolo’s group at Boston College, aims at developing a large size (300 mm x 300 mm) updatable 3D display with photorefractive polymers for battlefield and command and control applications. The proposed 3D display system features fast response (feasible to video-rate), high diffraction efficiency, and relati ...

  2. A Low Work Function Thermionic Conversion Electrode for Space Power Generation

    SBC: Busek Co., Inc.            Topic: SB171004

    The conversion of heat to power has proven to be vital in flight missions where solar power generation is not an option. Radioisotope thermoelectric generators that converted heat produced by a decaying nuclear source to power have been used on numerous ...

  3. A Low-Profile PAN Connector Platform for Aviator Wearable Electronics

    SBC: Human Systems Integration, Inc            Topic: A16126

    Aviator modernization programs, such as Air Warrior and Air Soldier System, focus on improving Aircrew survivability and mission effectiveness and offers a major step forward for the US Army with the introduction of advanced electronic systems integrated with the individual aviator ensemble. A key to achieving these goals is the integrated power, data, and communications links that connect the bod ...

  4. A Monolithically Integrated Multi-spectral Polarimetric Photodetector and focal plane array


    Polarization sensitive multi-spectral photodetectors are of great importance in target detection, characterization and discrimination. Most current existing multi-spectral sensing systems employ dispersive optics (gratings or prisms), or external polarizer technologies to obtain spectral and polarimetric characteristics of targets. These systems are usually heavy, bulky, having arrow incident angl ...

  5. A Multi-Waveform Visceral Neuromodulation Device with a Translational Visceral Electrode Foundry

    SBC: Micro-Leads, Inc.            Topic: SB142006

    Asthma, hypertension and diabetes impact one half of the world's civilian and military population resulting in premature death for many people. The sympathetic and parasympathetic visceral nerves which enervate the dysfunctional end organ may represent a neural stimulation target to reduce the impact of disease. However, the development of visceral nerve therapies has been inhibited for many yea ...

  6. A New Approach for Distributed Multidimensional Analysis of Battlespace Weather using Dwarf Technology

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: AF073017

    We propose to leverage our team’s critical expertise in weather data acquisition for weather effects modeling and innovative multidimensional database implementation to design a feasible proof-of-concept prototype that will demonstrate a revolutionary concept to improve incorporating weather effects within the air battle management process. Our design will include actual weather data and weathe ...

  7. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for Radiographic Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Radiographic inspection of munitions and ordnance prior to deployment in combat zones is vital for ensuring their safety and reliability.In particular, neutron radiography is a very efficient tool for such inspections and non-destructive testing (NDT) of munitions. However, high resolution, real-time, digital area detectors for neutron radiography do not exist at present.The current technology is ...

  8. A Novel High Resolution Photon Counting Detector for X-Ray Inspections

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A08051

    Current state-of-the-art X-ray imaging detectors use energy integration, where the simple integration of X-ray events during the exposure period forms images. Unfortunately, such indiscriminate operation is sub-optimal for digital radiography or CT imaging because of its inability to reject scatter, thus reducing contrast in reconstructed images, and the detectors¡¦ limited resolution, which re ...

  9. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  10. A Physics-based Fusion Approach for Color Night Vision

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: A07071

    Common night vision systems use single-band sensors that are sensitive to either emitted or reflected infrared (IR) radiation, and thus provide a monochromatic image of the inspected scene. Adding color can increase depth, contrast and perception, improving soldiers' reaction time and reducing fatigue. However, current color night vision systems are quite limited in performance and range of appli ...
