  1. Dynamically Tunable Metamaterials

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: A09AT002

    The technology, theory and fabrication of artificial materials and metamaterials have seen impressive progress in the last few years, and various applied fields have benefited of the great flexibility of electromagnetic response that metamaterials may provide at microwaves, infrared (IR) and/or optical frequencies. Negative-refractive and zero-permittivity metamaterials have indeed been proposed f ...

  2. Nonlinear Plasmonic Devices

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: SB082001

    Surface plasmons (SPs) have been studied by a wide spectrum of scientists, ranging from physicists, chemists and materials scientists to biologists. Plasmonics represents an opportunity to develop a new class of photonic devices by concentrating and channeling light using subwavelength structures. Such circuits would first convert light into SPs, which would then propagate and be processed by lo ...

  3. Low Visibility Decoy Flare

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM09002

    Low visibility flares offer significant advantages for nighttime protection of rotary wing vehicles. Aerodyne Research Inc (ARI) and its teaming partner ATK propose flares having nearly same intensity in IR bands of interest while having greatly reduced visibility. The Phase I program will build on previous work performed by ARI on low visibility flares to identify candidate flare compositions h ...

  4. Peregrine Airspace Protection System for Denying Small UAV Intrusion

    SBC: Aerophysics, Inc.            Topic: SB082002

    Aerophysics, Raytheon Missile Systems, and Michigan Tech Research Institute (MTRI) have teamed to provide an innovative solution that will detect, track, and neutralize small UAVs. The system, termed Peregrine, is a RADAR-cued active/passive IR countermeasure based on the Quiet Eyes turret from Raytheon. Peregrine will use unique RADAR signal processing techniques to ID the Doppler return of sma ...

  5. Development of a Next-Generation, Simulation-Based Project Management Tool

    SBC: VIASIM            Topic: SB072006

    Most project management (PM) tools on the market today use some type of PERT and/or CPM methodology as its primary underlying methodology. PERT (Program Evaluation and Review Technique) was invented by the U.S. Navy in the 1950''''''''''''''''s to manage the Polaris submarine missile program. CPM (Critical Path Method) was invented about the same time in the private sector. These two approaches ...

  6. Improved electrodes for low-loss radio frequency devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A09AT015

    Understanding and minimizing RF loss in tunable components is key to the successful integration of this technology in high performance wireless devices. Filter applications, in particular, fundamentally require extremely low loss to operate efficiently. Agile’s high-frequency tunable filter development efforts using BST have found that loss due to surface or series resistance (Rs) is a significa ...

  7. Efficient Small Antennas

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: SB082051

    As antennas decrease in size their efficiency and bandwidth decrease. In order to improve the efficiency and frequency coverage of small antennas one must find a way to improve upon the Chu limit. Agile's proven approach is to use tunability to improve the Chu limit thereby allowing a small antenna to be tuned over broad frequency ranges by using tunable and reactive elements in the matching cir ...

  8. Panoramic Helmet-Mounted Display and Processing

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB091010

    Leveraging on our extensive experience on laser projection technology, AGILTRON proposes to realize a new class of see-through type of Head Mounted Display (HMD) with wide field of view and foveal vision ability, targeted for integrating with enhanced vision systems for night and daytime dismounted infantry combat operations with a secondary function of providing command and control information an ...

  9. Single Wall Carbon Nanotube Printed Integrated Circuits

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB082014

    Leveraging on our extensive experience in carbon nanotube material processes and printing technology, AGILTRON together with a research group from UIUC, propose to realize a new class of integrated circuits printed from single wall carbon nanotubes (SWCNTs). This new printed integrated circuit (PIC) is based on recently developed medium SWCNT ICs on flexible plastic substrates. The result will be ...

  10. Lilliputian Thermal Camera

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: SB082006

    The Agiltron lilliputian thermal camera implements a revolutionary approach to thermal imaging. Based on our company’s proven photomechanical IR imaging technology, we separate the IR focal plane array (FPA) from the readout integrated circuitry (ROIC), which allows ubiquitous yet highly-functional CMOS imagers to serve as the ROIC. The disruptive, modular design of the Agiltron lilliputian ther ...
