  1. High Performance and Low Cost Sniper Riflescope Detection Lidar

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05006

    Dual Source Enemy Identification and Negation Lidar (DSEINL) is a preferred method with wide field of view and high detection rate to find and identify enemy combatants and sniper rifles by receiving the co-reflected or retro-reflected light from the sighting riflescope or the enemy combatant¡¦s eyes. The sighting scope mounted on weapons, such as sniper rifles, has a reticle plate fixed on the ...

  2. Lighteight and Low Cost Infrared Optics for Manportable Fire Control and Missile System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05202

    Agiltron proposes a new class of significantly lightweight long wave infrared (LWIR) lens system for Army manportable fire control and missile systems. Our unique afocal design uses only three thin lenses with aspherical and Fresnel surfaces, holding the promise of providing unsurpassed optical zooming performance. Leveraging on our extensive expertise in chalcogenide glass lens fabrication, we pr ...

  3. Visible Wavelength Negative Index Materials

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05T015

    Leveraging Agiltron's recent breakthrough in photonic nano-manufacturing technology and research on photonic crystals together with Northeastern University's know-how in the research of negative index material, we propose to design and fabricate a negative index photonic crystal material and establish its potential for negative refraction and subwavelength imaging at visible wavelengths. Our preli ...

  4. Nano-Enabled Sampling for SERS-Based Trace Explosive Detection

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A05092

    We propose a new Surface-enhanced Raman Scattering sampling chip and cell design of permeable/porous polymer matrix embedded with multi-layered gold nano-particles. The approach leverages the leading-edge micro-optical component development and manufacture at Agiltron and extensive experience in nano-material engineering within the research group headed by Prof. Vladimire V. Tsukruk at Iowa State ...

  5. Multi-Channel High-Speed Phase/Amplitude Manipulation

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A04035

    Agiltron, Inc proposes a fully integrated approach for free-space laser communication transceiver components offering multi-channel beam combination and separation with fast phase-shift and amplitude-variation capabilities. The innovation is independent electro-optic manipulation of the orthogonally polarized input/output signals, both in phase and amplitude, by using advanced Ti: MgO: LiNbO3 wave ...

  6. Compact, Multipulse Agile Laser for Spectrochemical Applications

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A05028

    High-energy, tunable, pulsed lasers are vital components in many state-of-the-art optical systems, including Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy (LIBS) for standoff spectrochemical detection and analysis of explosives and other chemicals. In order to enhance the signal and improve repeatability, it is necessary to perform LIBS measurements in dual-pulse mode, with two short high-energy pulses wit ...

  7. Self-Assembled DNA: A Template for Constructing Electronic Devices

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A04056

    In order to increase the performance of electronic devices, much technical effort is being devoted towards shrinking the size of the individual components. However, it is uncertain whether the current pace of miniaturization may be continued since fundamental limits of the photolithographic technique are being reached. As an alternative to photolithography, the use of self-assembled biological m ...

  8. Shared Understanding Across Levels of Command

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A04030

    In any mission involving hierarchical levels of command, a key success factor is the clear communication of intent, as well as a common understanding of the ongoing situation, across levels of command. In practice, however, command intent may be distorted as subordinates communicate goals downward, and feedback upward, through the chain of command. To the extent that command intent is misunderstoo ...

  9. PERSUADE: PERSonnel-based Unit of Action Design Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A04037

    The objective of the proposed work is to utilize innovative optimization algorithms and normative engineering models for the design of Army organizations. This system will increase productivity and efficiency of Army organizations by identifying critical factors in organizational structure, resource control, and processes given mission goals, team expertise, informal relationships, and resource/ma ...

  10. New Technologies for Growing Leaders: Assessment of Wisdom

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: A04032

    Increasingly, the Army has become engaged in "operations other than war." Compared to traditional combat operations, these missions are considerably more complex and ill-defined. Success in these operations requires that Army leaders view problems from a Joint Forces mindset, recognize the long-term implications of their command decisions, and make complex value judgments that have no clear, corre ...
