SBC: Mayflower Communications Company, Inc. Topic: AF09BT12
Mayflower Communications has partnered with the Boston University Hearing Research Center to propose novel techniques for speech enhancement in reverberant environment based on advanced auditory modeling of higher-level processing in the human auditory brain. Speech enhancement or noise suppression has been an area of active research for well over three decades. State-of-the-art single-microphone ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT33
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of uncooled THz detectors for the 1-10THz band with a novel design using surface plasmon resonant cavities with integrated metal-insulator-metal tunneling diodes as the detecting element. Tunneling diodes provide ultrafast broadband response, potentially into the visible (300THz), but demonstrated performanc ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: AERODYNE RESEARCH INC Topic: AF09BT34
Aerodyne Research, Inc. (ARI) and The University of Massachusetts at Amherst will collaborate to develop a novel technique for efficient mass spectrometric analysis of high molecular weight analytes such as proteins and polymers. Laser desorption and ionization with minimal analyte fragmentaton will be carried out on metal nanoparticle substrates in a particle beam sampled by Aerodyne’s proprie ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT19
The objective of this Phase I project is to evaluate the use of novel Laser Induced Surface Improvement (LISI) techniques to provide surface modification to substrate materials which will provide superior wear resistance in extreme conditions. The specific application of interest is the hypersonic metal-to-metal contact that occurs at high speed test track facilities that can and has lead to catas ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: AGILTRON, INC. Topic: AF09BT33
Agiltron and the University of Massachusetts Lowell will develop a transformational terahertz (THz) imager based on Agiltron’s established optical readout photomechanical imaging technology. The photomechanical imager contains a MEMS-based focal plane array that transduces THz radiation into a visible signal for capture by a high-performance CCD imager. By leveraging the advances made in the fie ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: LEXITEK INC Topic: AF09BT34
Lexitek and U. Mass Lowell propose to develop novel laser nanostructured substrates for laser desorption ionization (LDI) that enables mass spectrometry (MS) without an interfering chemical matrix. Lexitek is developing these patented plasmonic devices for molecular sensing using surface enhanced detection techniques. Using a technique invented by U. Mass researchers, the devices are fabricated in ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Nanolab, Inc Topic: AF09BT36
The goal of the proposed STTR is to demonstrate the feasibility of using a rapid, automated spray layer by layer process, developed by the Hammond group in MIT’s Department of Chemical Engineering, to create polyelectrolyte/carbon nanotube composites for Air Force applications at deposition rates superior to existing layer by layer techniques. This proposal will be led by NanoLab, Inc., a compa ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Photonic Systems, Inc. Topic: AF09BT25
In this project, we propose to use the radiation-assisted poling technique to enhance the electro-optic coefficient of a polymer that we will integrate within a silicon nano-slot waveguide. The electro-optic coefficient in the slot is expected to improve to nearly its optimal value that it exhibits in bulk material. To avoid a free carrier transit time limit and reduce the radio-frequency propag ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force

different modes, while using different combinations of subsystems. This presents a challenge for the personnel validating the system during design and development; the number of combinations of environments, modes, and subsystems is exponential. They cannot all be tested, so an optimal subset of tests must be run. We propose to develop VERITAS: Validation and Evaluation of Remote, Interactive Tea ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: Sinmat Inc Topic: MDA09T001
Gallium Nitride (GaN) substrates are ideal materials for fabrication of high-power and high-frequency devices based on III-V materials. The current state-of-the-art Chemical Mechanical Polishing (CMP) methods are plagued by several challenges, including, surface charge affects due to surface contamination, and sub-surface damages, which can limit the quality of III-V devices. Furthermore, there is ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
