Dynamic Multisensor Exploitation (DYME)SBC: Technology Service Corporation Topic: ST081008
The challenges faced by airborne and ground-based sensors in detecting, classifying, identifying, associating and tracking difficult moving targets, such as insurgent forces, operating in difficult terrain such as mountains and forests will be addressed. Our team will quantify the performance that can be achieved using multi-sensor, multi-spectral, and multi-platform techniques, where the sensors ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Novel Methods for Rapid Detection of Infection Agents and the Severity of Cellular DamageSBC: DiaCarta, Inc. Topic: ST081003
Early detection of virulent infectious pathogens is critical to blocking the devastating epidemic spread of the pathogen and the potential harm this could have on our armed forces and general populations. In Phase I, we have utilized the state-of-the-art QuantiGene 2.0 technology to establish an assay for the sensitive quantification of SARS (epidemic spread in 2001) and assessing plasma DNA level ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Ultra Low Drive Voltage Electro-Optic ModulatorSBC: Freedom Photonics LLC Topic: ST081014
The development of compact, ultra-low drive voltage optical phase modulators is a critical key component for passive antenna remoting applications, a strategic area, part of a number of current and upcoming DARPA initiatives. With the development of sufficiently low V-pi modulators, passive front-ends can be constructed with a low figure even for a moderate optical pumping power. The combination o ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Long Coherence Length Far Ultraviolet Laser for High-Resolution Nano-FabricationSBC: ACTINIX Topic: ST071006
Cost effective semiconductor processing tools that enable the high-resolution nano-fabrication of low-volume electronics are needed by the DOD. The printing of ultra-fine gratings on silicon wafers using interference immersion lithography is envisaged as a first maskless process step in the fabrication of advanced application specific integrated circuits. Next generation interference immersion lit ...STTR Phase II 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) ApplicationsSBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC. Topic: ST092003
A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Applications of Computational Command Leadership AI Models (ACCLAIM)SBC: Stottler Henke Associates, Inc. Topic: ST092002
A military without good leadership is a mob. Identification, preparation, guidance and mentoring of potential leaders are critical functions across all services. Leadership training and support can be substantially improved by refinement of theories and models on what constitutes good leadership, and what enables individual to be effective leaders. DoD needs better models of how leaders learn, ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION Topic: ST092003
Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Modeling Leadership Dynamics in Multinational EnvironmentsSBC: MacroCognition, LLC Topic: ST092002
We propose to develop a computational model of leadership designed to capture complex variables including cultural differences in leadership requirements along with task differences, primarily ill-defined goals, which pose leadership challenges. Rather than avoiding these kinds of complexity and developing a computational model that is unlikely to scale up, we believe there is more to be gained b ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency
