SBC: TRANSITION45 TECHNOLOGIES INC Topic: N06T021
Lattice Block Structures are innovative, periodic cellular materials whose combination of affordability, low relative density, and substantial strength represents a significant advance in the state-of-the-art of engineered structural materials. Lattice Block Structures in particular have superior kinetic energy absorbing ability that stems from the collapsibility of the internal cells. As a result ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseNavy
SBC: X-Wave Innovations, Inc. Topic: DLA18A001
Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a modern and increasingly popular manufacturing process for metallic components, but suffers from well known problems of inconsistent quality of the finished product. Process monitoring and feedback control are therefore crucial research areas with a goal of solving this problem. To address this concern, X-wave Innovations, Inc. (XII) and the University of Dayton Res ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseDefense Logistics 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
Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp. Topic: N06T021
Off-board vehicles deployed in littoral environments are subjected to severe operational loads, including wave slamming, high-speed collision with debris, and underwater explosions. They additionally serve as sensor platforms, and would benefit from reduced self- and radiated noise for towed array performance and mine defense. Consequently, we propose to exploit the flexibility of design offered ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseNavy
2-D 2-Color Laser Spot Array Generation for Quantum Computing Applications:Doppler-free Acousto-Optic Multi-beam Scanners to Address and Trap Atom ArrSBC: BRIMROSE CORPORATION OF AMERICA Topic: A06T010
We propose to develop and fabricate an optical scanner required to address a 2-D array of trapped Rubidium atomic qubits with two lasers simultaneously. One of the most scalable approaches to quantum information processing (QIP) is Optical addressing of arrays of trapped atoms. This is done with focused spots using tuned lasers which program initial states and implement 2-quibt gates. High spatial ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: NANOTRON Topic: AF06T026
A low-cost laser process for synthesizing nanolayers in solar cells is proposed. The net effect of these nanolayers is a wide absorption of the solar spectrum. In this proposed process a laser is used to form many p-n junctions in a thin, lightly doped wafer. Each p-n junction formed will be unique so that each p-n junction converts a different range of the sunlight’s spectrum into current.STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseAir Force
Development of Multilayer High-Temperature Superconducting Films with High-Power Handling CapabilitySBC: NEOCERA, LLC Topic: AF06T014
The primary objective of this STTR is to develop thick, high-temperature superconducting (HTS) multi-layer heterostructures for high-power handling microwave devices and with reduced nonlinearities. Building on the resources of Neocera’s materials research on HTS heterostructures and MIT Lincoln Laboratories vast knowledge on nonlinear behavior of HTS films at microwave frequencies, this STTR P ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: OPTIMAL SYNTHESIS INC. Topic: MDA17T002
The Department of Defense uses large-scale high-resolution federated simulations to propagate rocket vehicle trajectories. Runge-Kutta methods have served as a de-facto standard while conducting such simulations. However, there are several challenges while using Runge-Kutta methods for this task. Firstly, there should be exact time-step matching between federates, otherwise the states have to be i ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseMissile Defense Agency
Advanced Robotic Detection of Chemical Agents, Toxic Industrial Gases, and IEDs for Force Health Protection.SBC: IONFINITY, LLC Topic: A06T029
We propose to develop a novel chemical agent sensor through a joint collaborative effort between IonFinity, the Jet Propulsion Laboratory, and Imaginative Technologies. This chemical sensor consists of 1) a new and powerful detector called a Differential Mobility Spectrometer which has been developed at Imaginative Technologies by team member Dr. Gary Eiceman, and 2) a novel “soft-ionization” ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
SBC: RF Nano Corporation Topic: A06T012
It is the purpose of this Phase I STTR program to both demonstrate proof of concept of long nanotubes as receiving and transmitting microwave antennas, and to develop detailed simulation tools to predict their performance and determine the optimum geometry. This will build on four years of UC Irvine experience fabricating mm long individual single walled carbon nanotubes, and pioneering theoretica ...STTR Phase I 2006 Department of DefenseArmy
