  1. High Speed Low Loss Optical Switch

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: N/A

    High performance fiberoptic switch is an enable technology for new generation optical telecommunication and fully secured quantum communication/cryptography applications. Current fiberoptic switches do not simultaneously meet the requirements of high speed, low loss, high extinction ratio, and high reliability. Based on the successful development/production of a variety of industrial leading solid ...

  2. The Manufacturing of Large Soft X-ray Flourescence Detectors

    SBC: Detector Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    At present the need for a large area, 100 square centimeters or greater, soft x-ray fluorescence detector with high detection efficiency is required for material science and x-ray absorption spectroscopy. The current methods of detection used in x-ray absorption spectroscopy are subject to poor collection efficiency, large background and vacuum risk. It is the task of this grant to develop a multi ...

  3. Next Generation Cryogen-free ADR Cryostat

    SBC: Janis Research Co.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the next generation cryogen-free Adiabatic Demagnetization Refrigerator (ADR) system. It is a two stage ADR system that employs a self-shielded conductively cooled superconducting magnet and non-filamentary support for the paramagnetic pills. This is an improved version from Janis current cryogen-free ADR system product line, and the new system will be more user-friendly and ...

  4. A Non-Contact Sensor for Advanced Warning of Structural Collapse

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Summit Safety will develop an ultrasonic, non-contact sensor and system capable of detecting the acoustic sounds and fire-induced vibrations of structures that are precursors of structural collapse. The system will provide advanced warning to the Incident Commander of potential or imminent structural collapse. COMMERCIAL APPLICATIONS: The total US market for this product includes the over 1 mill ...

  5. A Multi-Tracker Navigation System for Firefighters

    SBC: Summit Safety, Inc            Topic: N/A

    A lightweight, low-cost system for each firefighter to detect the location and direction of other nearby firefighters will be provided. A heads-up display will allow hands-free operation. The system will be integrated with the Personnel Ultrasonic Locating and Safety Equipment, or PULSE, developed by Summit Safety. This system uses ultrasound -- sound waves above the normal hearing range -- to ena ...

  6. Direct-Digital Phase-&-Amplitude-Noise Measurement-System

    SBC: TIMING SOLUTIONS            Topic: N/A

    The Direct Digital Phase Noise Measurement Phase 1 SBIR demonstrated the feasibility of the technology to make the measurements required by the commercial marketplace. This new approach to phase noise measurements uses fast digital-to-analog converters to digitize the input RF signal and performs all down-conversion and phase detection functions by digital signal processing. It has several signifi ...

  7. Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed Information (ALADDIN II)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: OSD02DH13

    Recent terrorist actions, particularly the delivery of anthrax via the US Postal Service, have triggered an urgent need for an early warning system for disease outbreaks due to bioterrorism. In response, we have developed, under a Phase I SBIR effort, a Bayesian Belief Network (BN) approach for Automated Link Analysis for Data-mining of Distributed INformation (ALADDIN) for early outbreak detectio ...

  8. SAR Tomography

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: NIMA03002

    The development of tomographic SAR imaging is arguably the next big step in the evolution of imaging radar systems. The value of a successful volumetric imaging system to the US Government is clear. While successful demonstrations of volumetric imaging capabilities from various radar platforms have been made recently, there remains significant issues regarding data acquisition, signal processing ...

  9. Optical Instrumentation for MEMS Oscillatory Parallel-Plate Rheometer

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: 9060563R

    Leveraging Agiltron’s industrial leading developments for optical measurement of motion in MEMS devices, we propose to use electro-optical sensors for measuring the displacement and gap in the NIST micro-rheometer. No electrical connections are required to the moving parts. All electronics and optics are removed from the chip so that it is inexpensive and disposable. A fixed, simple micro-fluidi ...

  10. An Extensible 6DOF Vision Framework for Accurate Location and Pose Estimation in a Scene Graph Context

    SBC: ROADNARROWS LLC            Topic: 9051173R

    RoadNarrows proposes a novel architecture to be implemented in a 6DOF vision system with applications in autonomous robotics. The system will report objects of interest along with location and pose information to a supervising computer. This system will be built around an advanced 3D vision platform that can deliver multiple video streams and 3D spatial measurements. The sensors will deliver high- ...
