SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT03
Our objective is to develop advanced mediator architectures for efficient electron transfer in enzymatic fuel cells (EFCs) for low power systems. The proposed EFC will leverage ongoing research at both CFDRC and Michigan State University to provide a fully-integrated lightweight, low-cost, manufacturable, and renewable power supply, for various military and civilian applications. EFC systems offer ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: CFD RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: AF09BT20
Higher efficiency solar cells are needed to reduce solar array mass, volume, and cost for Air Force space missions. Intermediate-band quantum-dot (QD) solar cells can yield dramatically higher efficiencies than current multi-junction (MJ) technologies. However, several issues must be addressed to demonstrate manufacturable, high efficiency devices. CFDRC aims to develop: 1) High-efficiency, ligh ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT39
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: PHYSICAL SCIENCES INC. Topic: AF09BT35
The Air Force has expressed an interest in identification and evaluation of nanoscale device architectures capable of functional logical operation in a VLSI format. However, fundamental limits prevent straightforward extension of optical lithography to nanoscaled device fabrication. Non-conventional lithography techniques such as x-ray and particle based methods (e.g., electron beam lithography) p ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Magnolia Solar Inc. Topic: AF09BT20
Magnolia Solar proposes to develop an innovative high efficiency single junction solar cell working with Prof. Diana Huffaker and her group and utilizing multi photon absorption in InAsSb/AlAsSb quantum dot solar cells. The proposed structure has unique qualities required by Intermediate band solar cell theory to achieve ultra high conversion efficiency. This system has a potential to achieve effi ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Photonic Glass Corporation Topic: AF09BT20
This proposal addresses the attainment of conversion efficiency exceeding 35% in a single-junction solar cell. Non-absorption of long wavelength photons and thermallization of short wavelength photons accounts for the loss of over half of the incident energy in a single junction cell; however, a large fraction of this energy could be captured if the spectrum is first modified by an efficient phot ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Physical Engineering Corporation Topic: AF09BT39
This Phase I STTR proposal will demonstrate nanostructured “metal-black” coatings to enhance absorption by thin film solar cells. The problem is that silicon has low absorption due to its indirect gap. The opportunity is that nano-scale metallic scattering centers increase the effective optical path length and enhance the solar electric-field strength in thin-film solar cells, leading to more ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Pikewerks Corporation Topic: OSD09T003
Industrial Control Systems (ICS) are critical elements in electrical, water, oil/gas, and manufacturing services involving supervisory control and data acquisition (SCADA), distributed control systems (DCS), and programmable logic controllers (PLCs). These systems allow operators to monitor sensor data and remotely control field devices. Initially, these devices were designed for closed-network or ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Infoscitex Corporation Topic: ST092001
There are many situations in DOD missions when soldiers could operate much more effectively if they could successfully recall previously presented information that is vital for mission execution. However, the quantity of information supplied to today’s Warfighter is constantly increasing. This is due to greater reliance on network-centric operations and the expanding range of missions Warfighter ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseDefense Advanced Research Projects Agency

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
