  1. Compact Low-Power Driver for Deformable Mirror Systems

    SBC: Boston Micromachines Corporation            Topic: S202

    This proposal describes a new concept to drive MEMS DMs using low-power, high-voltage multiplexing. Compared to other reported approaches, the proposed architecture will reduce power consumption by a factor of one hundred, to a level of a few hundred milliwatts. This estimate is supported by direct measurements obtained from prototype modules that were demonstrated in Phase I research.In the Phase ...

  2. Magnetically Actuated Seal

    SBC: Florida Turbine Technologies Inc.            Topic: X1001

    FTT proposes development of a magnetically actuated dynamic seal. Dynamic seals are used throughout the turbopump in high-performance, pump-fed, liquid rocket engines for a variety of purposes. The most common applications are in the lift-off seal (LOS), inter-propellant seal (IPS), and balance piston seals?high-pressure orifice (HPO), low-pressure orifice (LPO), and inner diameter impeller shro ...

  3. Precision Information Environment for Collaborative Emergency Support (PIECES)

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: HSB0101003

    Decision makers responding to homeland security incidents must rapidly integrate and manage dynamic, time-sensitive information from many heterogeneous and multimodal information sources. Responders access this information through numerous software applications, all while attempting to collaborate in real-time. Based on the results of our Phase I design effort, we propose to develop and evaluate a ...

  4. Solid State Transcutaneous Carbon Dioxide Sensor

    SBC: Giner, Inc.            Topic: A09159

    The United States Army (The Army) has identified the need for a device that can accurately and non-invasively measure the partial pressure of carbon dioxide (PCO2) that is suitable for use in combat casualties who have hypovolemic shock, acute lung injury, massive resuscitation, and other factors that alter the exhaled or end-tidal CO2 (ETCO2)-PCO2 relationship. In this Phase II program, Giner, In ...

  5. Enhanced IED Detection Using Ontological Knowledgebase with Fuzzy Reasoning

    SBC: Migma Systems Inc.            Topic: A09078

    In Phase I, we have developed a suite of algorithms with capabilities including anomaly detection, false alarm mitigator, intelligent target grouping for minefield display to the human operator, and minefield detection. An ontological knowledgebase has also be developed, which provides a unified environment for the operation and coordination of individual algorithm modules. Test results using actu ...

  6. High Reliability Cryogenic Piezoelectric Valve Actuator


    Cryogenic fluid valves are subject to harsh exposure and actuators to drive these valves require robust performance and high reliability. DSM's piezoelectric actuators offer advantages over traditional alternative actuator technology. However, in order to use piezoceramic actuators in cryogenic fluid handling applications, proof of operational reliability and improvements in thermal neutral ...

  7. Wiki for Intelligent Semantic Event Reporting (WISER)

    SBC: MODUS OPERANDI, INC.            Topic: OSD09SP6

    Modus Operandi proposes the development of WISER (Wiki for Intelligent Semantic Event Reporting), an innovative semantic wiki framework for alerting warfighters of significant events and changing conditions relevant to their missions. Intelligence analysis of unstructured intelligence, particularly textual reports, is a very time-consuming process. The Marine Corps'S & T Strategic goal for i ...

  8. Pulsed, Single-Frequency, 2-um Seed Source for Coherent LIDAR Applications

    SBC: Q-PEAK INCORPORATED            Topic: S101

    The primary objective of the proposed Phase II effort is to develop and deliver a ruggedized, single-frequency, mJ-level, 2050-nm master oscillator?power amplifier system suitable for coherent LIDAR applications. The laser system is based on a low-average power, pulsed, single-frequency, 2-um Ho-laser source. Pulsed operation of the Ho-oscillator is achieved via passive Q-switching using robust Cr ...

  10. A Compact, Dual Excitation Raman Probe and Instrument for the Identification of Lunar Samples

    SBC: EIC LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: S111

    NASA's Vision for Space Exploration advocates a return to the moon and involves a pl an of using the moon as a base of for missions to other planets. Early return missions to the moon will involve lunar exploration with robotic spacecrafts with instrumental payloads for scientific measurements of lunar surface features such as rocks, soil, and minerals. These instrument payloads will be helpf ...
