  1. Wavelength-Beam-Combined Diode Laser Pumps for High-Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: SB103005

    In this SBIR program, TeraDiode, Inc. will develop a record brightness fiber-coupled diode laser system for pumping high power fiber lasers. TeraDiode has an exclusive license on intellectual property developed at MIT Lincoln Laboratory on a means of combining many diode lasers while scaling the brightness, to obtain an exceptionally bright fiber-coupled diode laser system. TeraDiode will demons ...

  2. Improved Collection, Specificity, and Longterm Reagent Storage for Point of Care Diagnostics

    SBC: Infoscitex Corporation            Topic: SB111001

    The role of point of care (POC) diagnostics in the medical field has rapidly grown in the last few decades into a multi-billion dollar industry. For many diagnostic applications, POC diagnostics technologies are rapidly displacing in-vitro laboratory based diagnostics because POC systems allow for more rapid and effective diagnosis and triage, which leads to improved patient outcomes and reduced h ...

  3. System for Detection, Identification, and Geolocation of Radio Emitters with low-Swap Sensors (DIGRESS)

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: SB111004

    There is currently no convenient, effective way to detect, identify, and geolocate (DIG) personal UHF/VHF radio communications devices in field operations. These are commonly used by adversary command, control, and spotter activity. The techniques used by special ops, search and rescue, and electronic warfare personnel do not satisfy this need because soldiers in field situations lack the time, ...

  4. Scroll Pump for Vapor Liquid Mixtures of Refrigerants

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: SB112001

    The purpose of this topic is to develop a pump that can pump two-phase, liquid and vapor mixtures of common refrigerants and heat transfer fluids, without oil lubrication. The challenges of pumping in this regime are well known: Two-phase, liquid-vapor refrigerant mixtures are a mixture of saturated liquid and saturated vapor, by definition meaning that there is zero net positive suction head. M ...

  5. A Tool for Agent-Based System Produced Emergent Networks (ASPEN)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: SB112004

    Social network analysis is a powerful method for making sense of an increasingly interconnected world. Developing social network analysis tools requires datasets with which to test them, but sharing datasets is problematic because of privacy issues. Initial attempts to anonymize network datasets proved ineffective due to de-anonymization attacks that leveraged publically available information to i ...

  6. INSITE: An Unattended In Situ HSCB Data Collection, Visualization, and Analysis System

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD10HS2

    Human Socio-Cultural Behavioral (HSCB)-based models have the potential to help tactical commanders assess situations and project consequences of actions in counterinsurgency (COIN) missions. Unfortunately, the potential utility of these models been limited due to a lack of area of interest (AOI) data traditionally collected by local subject matter experts (SMEs). The short supply of SMEs has creat ...

  7. Languaged Informed data Gathering and Analysis Toolkit and Unified REporting System (LIGATURES)

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: OSD10HS2

    Recent military missions demonstrate the need for understanding the socio-cultural landscape, which requires access to timely and detailed data. Existing approaches to HSCB data collection have proven inadequate and the lack of data has become a key constraint for modeling and analysis efforts. Accordingly, we propose to construct the Language Informed data Gathering and Analysis Toolkit and Unifi ...

  8. Low noise longwave infrared (8-12µm) focal plane array with high sensitivity for passive hyperspectral standoff detection

    SBC: APPLIED NANOFEMTO TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: CBD10105

    Longwave infrared (LWIR, 8-12µm) focal plane arrays (FPAs) play an important role in hyperspectral chemical and biological (CB) sensing and spectral imaging. Existing thermal detectors are unable to meet the high sensitivity and fast response requirements of many hyperspectral chemical and biological sensing applications. FPAs based on photon excited electron generation process can fulfill the sp ...

  9. MEMS Lamellar Based Interferometer for the Detection of Toxic Chemicals

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: CBD10104

    Leveraging on Agiltron industry leading development of optical MEMS devices and the PI experience with FTIR spectrometer design, we propose to develop a new class of high performance compact and rugged FTIR spectrometers for the LWIR optical range. The design is based on the MEMS lamellar mirror technique. Although this approach is not new, it has not yet been efficiently applied to LWIR, and per ...

  10. Cognitive Patterns: An Architecture for Distributed Control of ChemBots

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB082007

    Today"s robots require a great deal of control and supervision, and are unable to intelligently respond to unanticipated and novel situations. To address this problem, we developed a preliminary architecture for Cognitive Patterns which includes Cognitive Patterns Knowledge Generation (CPKG) and has the ability to connect to various knowledge-based models, multiple sensors, and to a human operator ...
