  1. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  2. Biologically Inspired Reconfigurable Computer for High-speed Object Avoidance in Small UAVs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N08079

    For this project, we plan to collaborate with researchers in the neuroscience department at the University of Delaware to develop an FPGA-based embedded computer, inspired in the brains small vertebrates (fish). The mechanisms of object detection and avoidance in fish have been extensively studied by our Delaware collaborators. The midbrain optic tectum is a biological multimodal navigation cont ...

  3. Compact Passive Millimeter Wave Sensor for GPS-denied Navigation

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    Under the proposed effort, PSI will leverage a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize the low size, weight, and power sensors required for UAV implementation.This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make large effective apertures in low SWaP form factors thereby maximizing achievable resolution.This sensor te ...

  5. Dynamic Kernel Monitoring for Attack Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: OSD07I05

    In an information warfare scenario, the enemy will deploy an attack that has never been seen before. This attack will completely debilitate both defensive and offensive software capabilities. We have designed and developed a system that will defend against such attacks. The project's major innovation has been a comprehensive approach for tolerating security violations in mission/safety critical ...

  6. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  7. Enhancing FPGA Performance Through Integrated Optical Interconnects

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF06T006

    FPGAs have attracted a great deal of attention over the past decade because of their performance, scalability, and cost relative to traditional hardware platforms. However, one of the most significant disadvantages of FPGAs is based on the underlying architecture on which they are built. Specifically, routing delay through the chip is one of the largest bottlenecks in developing FPGA-based appli ...

  8. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  9. Hardware Accelerated Super Resolution for MDA Interceptors

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: MDA07013

    MDA is currently developing advanced interceptors for its BMDS. Imaging technology is crucial to this effort for several purposes, including navigation, false-alarm/decoy identification, and estimation of position and speed of potential targets. Although high-resolution imaging systems are readily available, these require (1) power-hungry CMOS arrays (or FPAs) and (2) large-aperture optics, whic ...

  10. High Sensitivity Rugged Array Detectors for Field Deployed Instruments: Low-Light Level Camera for Laser-Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) and Ram

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A06065

    Laser-induced breakdown spectroscopy (LIBS) and Raman spectroscopy are developing rapidly for chemical and biochemical sensing applications. There is an urgent need for high-sensitivity detectors so as to minimize sample quantity and maximize detection range from the source. In most field-deployable spectrometers, a photo-detector array is used for analyzing the spectral contents. The sensitivitie ...
