Rechargeable carbon-oxygen battery: A new class of ultra low-cost, lightweight energy storage technologySBC: Noon Energy Inc. Topic: G
Noon Energy has developed a new class of battery technology that will cost-effectively turn intermittent solar and wind electricity into on-demand power. It uses ultra-low-cost storage media and can match the energy efficiency of lithium-ion technology. It stores energy by splitting CO2 into solid carbon and oxygen in a flow battery configuration, utilizing abundant materials and simple reaction c ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
Space Division Multiplexing with Multi-Core Fiber for Energy Efficient Integrated Photonic Networking TechnologiesSBC: ULTRA-LOW LOSS TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: G
The trend for short-reach optical fiber communications, those used for data centers and HPC, has been to use simple and power-efficient approaches to scale bandwidth. Approaches include parallel single mode (ex. more fibers), multi-level modulation coupled with direct detection (ex. four-level pulse amplitude modulation or PAM-4), and wide channel spacing (i.e. coarse WDM or CWDM). Bandwidth and c ...SBIR Phase I 2020 Department of EnergyARPA-E
SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: NGA191003
Due to the lack of consistency in existing automated methods for assigning VNIIRS levels to motion imagery, and the overwhelming human resources required to manually assign levels, a new method of automated/semi-automated VNIIRS assessment is needed. In recent years, advancements in deep learning have provided solutions to previously intractable computer vision problems. In many cases, automated d ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: INTELLISENSE SYSTEMS INC Topic: HSB0191003
To address the DHS need for a module that can power/charge and provide effective power management of all on-body electronics including sensors, communications systems, and peripheral devices for all first responder mission areas, Intellisense Systems, Inc. (ISI) proposes to develop a new Power and Rechargeable Battery Interface Smart Module (PRISM). This proposed technology is based on a novel mod ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: INFERLINK CORPORATION Topic: HSB0191006
The increasing number of breaches and hacks against organizations demands new and more effective ways to provide defense. Currently, most defense activities, such as monitoring, analysis, forensics, and remediation are done within house. This is unfortunate because the external knowledge and experience of others outside the organization cannot easily be leveraged. Our proposal focuses on the desig ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: Achilles Heel Technologies, Inc Topic: HSB0191007
The integration of new cyber technologies in emergency response systems can allow profound improvements in system performance, but also expose the systems to systemic security and privacy risks.Thus, there is a critical need for design-time risk-assessment tools for emergency response systems, which allow evaluation and mitigation of threat impacts across their heterogeneous cyber and physical com ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of Homeland Security
SBC: SONALYSTS INC Topic: NGA182001
To address NGA’s requirements, Sonalysts’ team of world-class experts in underwater optical communication proposes development and implementation of the Precision Optical Navigation Transceiver for Undersea Systems (PONTUS). PONTUS will transfer navigation information from an Underwater Navigation Beacon (UNB) to an Unmanned Undersea Vehicle (UUV) in an electromagnetic-spectrum-denied (e.g., G ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
SBC: SA PHOTONICS, LLC Topic: NGA182001
SA Photonics’ Optical Navigation and Ranging (ONAR) system is an interrogative system that operate underwater in wavelength range of blue/green (450-540 nm) and enables navigational correction to IMU based dead reckoning navigation. The location based beacons are battery operated and have operational life span of over one year. The system is designed to operate in on demand burst mode so that no ...SBIR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
Hybrid DNN-based Transfer Learning and CNN-based Supervised Learning for Object Recognition in Multi-modal Infrared ImagerySBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION Topic: 1
On this effort Toyon Research Corp. and The Pennsylvania State University are developing deep learning-based algorithms for object recognition and new class discovery in look-down infrared (IR) imagery. Our approach involves the development of a hybrid classifier that exploits both transfer learning and semi-supervised paradigms in order to maintain good generalization accuracy, especially when li ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseNational Geospatial-Intelligence Agency
