  1. Low Cost ALON

    SBC: Materials Systems Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This program will first establish a low-cost aluminum oxynitride (ALON) powder synthesis process, known to yield powder that can readily be densified to optical transparency. This program will then establish a new low-cost source for transparent ALONwindows. In Phase I, MSI will demonstrate a proven, low-cost method for synthesizing ALON powder. The process will utilize carbothermal reduction ...

  2. Development of a Vaccine for the Treatment and/or Prevention of Cancer

    SBC: Mattek Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Prostate cancer is the most common non-skin malignancy in the United States. With the exception of lung cancer, it is the leading cause of death in men in the country. By age 80, the risk of developing prostate cancer is estimated to be 1 in 7. Despiteincreased public awareness, regular check-ups, and improved therapeutic interventions, greater than 31,000 American men will die from prostate ca ...

  3. Innovative Soldier Conformal Antenna Suite

    SBC: MEGAWAVE CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes our approach for establishing the technical feasibility of developing an innovative, body conformal VHF/UHF antenna suite capable of being integrated into the MLLE and providing mixed polarization coverage regardless of thesoldier's position (prone-to-standing) and orientation. We will investigate three advanced techniques: use of Tesla's series connected bifilar-wound rib ...

  4. High Volume, Low-Cost Production of High-Purity Carbon Nanotubes

    SBC: Nanolab, Inc            Topic: N/A

    Carbon nanotubes have tremendous potential in many applications, but are limited by their high cost. The cost is driven by two factors, the low process yield and the laborious purification procedures required by current synthesis techniques, DC dischargeand laser ablation. However, nanotubes produced by the Chemical Vapor Deposition process have both high yield and purity, as well as control ove ...

  5. Wide-Angle Broadband Polarizing Beamsplitter

    SBC: NMI            Topic: N/A

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of fabricating polarizing beamsplitters that are broadband and have a wide field of view. We propose to use lithographic techniques to fabricate a polarizing beamsplitter that has acceptanceangles up to +- 55 degrees and extinction ratios greater than 50:1 throughout the visible spectrum. Various materials and processing techniques ...

  6. Nontoxic Biodegradable Nanomaterials and Biomaterials Signature Reduction

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop biodegradable obscurants operating over a wide wavelength range (infrared to millimeter wave) using variants of an electroactive polymer. High aspect ratio fibers of the polymer in the size range necessaryto provide broad spectrum coverage will be produced through a technique called electrospinning. The degradation of the polymer will be enhanced ...

  7. Nonlinear Transmission of Laser Radiation for Eye and Sensor Protection

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop improved solid-state optical-limiting devices incorporating reverse saturable absorber (RSA) materials. Optical limiting (OL) occurs when the optical transmission of a material decreases with increasinglaser fluence. OL materials can thus strongly attenuate intense optical beams while keeping high transmittance at low-intensity ambient light levels ...

  8. Modeling & Simulation for Combined Target Effects

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Directed energy weapon (DEW) systems can potentially become an important part of war fighting for the Army. Although much is known about the effects of millimeter/microwaves (HPMs), acoustics, and laser/white light on materials and entire systems, nogeneral purpose computational tool exists to evaluate the lethality of individual DEWs. There is even less information available on the combined eff ...

  9. Flame/Thermal Protective Fabric Test Apparatus

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N/A

    In this Phase I program, Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop a prototype testing apparatus to evaluate protective clothing fabrics for military procurement approval and test the protective performance of commercial fabrics. PSI's designincludes an IR radiant heat source, skin temperature measurement, a skin-simulant material, an adjustable sample platform, sensors measuring incident ...

  10. Data Mining within an Advanced Diagnostic and Prognostic System for Rotorcraft Maintenance

    SBC: QUALTECH SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Qualtech Systems, Inc. (QSI), as a provider of model-based diagnostic and maintenance aiding tools, possesses key components required to implement many of the data analysis and decision-making functions required for on-line health management of largecomplex systems. Leveraging these capabilities, the proposed effort seeks to develop data mining capabilities required by reasoning systems to sustain ...
