  1. OptForceT: New Human Resource Optimization Methods

    SBC: OptTek Systems, Inc.            Topic: N03T004

    OptTek Systems, Inc. is developing new software to significantly enhance optimization applications. The software, called OptForce, incorporates a sophisticated Meta-Structured Optimization (MSO) approach directly into the representation of the decision-making process. It has been demonstrated to be more effective than traditional mixed integer programming and heuristic solvers. Coupled with simula ...

  2. Fast Laser Pulse Shaping for Molecular Control and CB Detection

    SBC: Proteus Optics Llc            Topic: A04T008

    We propose the development of a commercial prototype laser pulse shaping system for the defense, industrial and academic communities for advanced laser processing applications. The system will be used for closed-loop control of molecular reactions and dynamics by coherent electromagnetic fields. During Phase I we built and tested a breadboard system and due to its simplified optical system showed ...

  4. Low-cost, multi-spectral treatment for exo-atmospheric ballistic targets

    SBC: Synectic Research And Analysis, Inc.            Topic: MDA04T023

    This Phase II effort demonstrates the feasibility of integrating a chemically powered or “active” infrared (IR) treatment into an inflatable device and then perform three experimental excursions with the hardware: 1) achieve a tunable IR signature by cooling the surface; 2) achieve tunable IR emissions combined with a predetermined and fixed radar cross section (RCS); and 3) achieve both varia ...

  5. Fully Integrated Optical Micro Gyroscope

    SBC: Elsicon, Inc.            Topic: 18a

    76101-With the increased push toward system miniaturization and automation there exists a growing need for components that are small in size, reliable, robust, and cheap to manufacture. This is particularly true for systems used to detect the presence of weapons of mass destruction. Among those miniature components, high performance gyros are needed in real-time synthetic aperture radar systems ...

  6. Ion Beam Drift Compression Technology for NDCX

    SBC: FIRST POINT SCIENTIFIC, INC.            Topic: 03a

    76144-Heavy-ion fusion requires a high current and high brightness beam, but its specifications cannot be met with the highest intensity ion sources available. Current amplification, through longitudinal compression of the beam, will be needed to achieve these specifications, and ion beam drift compression has been identified as the preferred method. However, this concept has not been demonstrat ...

  9. Multiple-Input Data Acquisition System (MIDAS) for Measuring the Carbon Content in Soil Using Inelastic Neutron Scattering

    SBC: XIA LLC            Topic: 46d

    75574-Soil management has been suggested as a method for sequestering massive amounts of carbon, in order to mitigate the buildup of CO2 as an atmospheric greenhouse gas. In order to evaluate such schemes and document their performance, it will be necessary to quantifying changes in soil carbon stocks. However, current methods for quantifying carbon in soils (by core sampling, infra-red and LIBS ...
