Algorithm for Minimum Antenna Size
SSC Pacific has developed an algorithm for an antenna model design based on user requirements that provides antennas at least 50% smaller than using current methods.
Compact Broadband Antenna
A bicone antenna configuration that permits a device to transmit and receive over a range of 130 MHz to 9.0 GHz (capable of improvements to over 10 GHz).
Passive Wide-band Low-elevation Nulling Antenna
A small, lightweight, wideband, wide beam pattern, passive antenna that is able to transmit and receive signals to and from satellites at any position relative to the antenna, and is immune to interference and jamming at the horizon.
Wideband Polarization-agile Antenna Array
Increases network throughput and security in communications systems (e.g., cellular, mobile, satellite, tactical). Applications include spectral reuse and polarization modulation/multiple access.
Communication Relay Systems and Networks for UGVs
Communication relays and mesh network that allows long-range, non-line-of-sight UGV communications for small UGVs. Highlights two projects: Automatic Payload Deployment System (APDS), and Manually Deployed Communication Relays (MDCR).
Adaptive Linear Filter (ALF)
A filter for real-time video and still imagery that improves visibility through adverse conditions such as thick fog, smoke, and darkness.
Advanced Hooking Algorithm (AHA)
The Advanced Hooking Algorithm (AHA) supports and enhances existing user-interface designs by providing constant computation of a “selectable” cursor target, which is the object closest to the current cursor position on a computer display.
Intelligent Decision Support System
A system and method for knowledge amplification employing structured expert randomization that vastly reduces the primary cost of acquiring and maintaining knowledge for an expert system.
A software application that summarizes natural language statements and provides users the capability to train responses for any given input.
Automobile Engine Disabling Device
Device provides pulses of electrical energy through streams of high pressured electrolytic fluid to disable electrical components within a vehicle.
Microprocessor Power Reduction
A pulsed laser method that allows the threshold voltage of a microprocessor to be tuned regardless of its physical dimensions.
Motion-Generated Electrical Energy
Device uses electrostrictive polymers to generate electrical energy from natural motion. Incorporated into the sole of a shoe, this device could power multiple portable devices.
Noise-assisted Morphable Logic Gates
Logic gates that operate only when moderate noise is present, and can be changed on the fly to perform different logic functions--a property that could lead to reconfigurable computer processors.
Real-Time Gas Concentrator
Allows for the real time extraction/concentration of a gaseous component from a gas mixture (e. g., oxygen from air) through the use of novel miniaturized extraction units.
Rotatable Scanning Probe Microscopy Head
Consolidates multiple scanning probe tips into a rotating array, saving the user time and money when taking several types of scanning probe microscopy measurements. (VIDEO)
Dynamic Change-Point Detection (DCD)
A method for detecting statistically significant changes in data with a wide array of applications and uses including medical data analysis, market-trend analysis and reporting, sales forecasting and analyzing, and system monitoring.
Microsensor Medical Condition Monitor
A microprobe and microsensor system for digitally monitoring and processing patient data in order to deliver optimal patient care. The subcutaneous microprobe sensor measures tissue pH to detect shock and determine if tissue is viable.
Autonomous Remote Biohazard Surveillance System
Miniaturized remote system detects, analyzes, and reports the presence of biohazards using permanently deployed remote surveillance stations. Each station can operate independently and without human intervention for prolonged periods.
Boat Capture System
SSC Pacific’s Boat Capture System is a solution for loading a boat onto a trailer under substantial power in calm or rough water. The system has been successfully field-tested by the Navy SEALs.
Electroactive Polymer (EAP) Biaxial Braid
Electroactive polymers (EAPs) are polymers that change shape when voltage is applied. SSC Pacific has developed an EAP structure that has decreased bulk and mass, and increased flexibility and local shape control.
A solar powered “Hydrogen Sponge” that generates and safely stores hydrogen gas for use in fuel cell and hydrogen based technologies without the use of fossil fuel energy. (VIDEO)
Light-Induced Mechanical Motion
With a bit of light and a simple solution of polymers, SSC Pacific has created a new and novel way to induce mechanical motion in the form of contraction and expansion.
Tidal Seepage Meter
Device measures tidal seepage over time and can obtain multiple samples per use.
Vehicle Void Detection System
Non-invasive system uses laser vibrations to detect voids in vehicle compartments that could potentially conceal explosives or contraband.
Dynamic and Autonomous Nodding LiDAR Mechanism
SSC Pacific’s nodding LiDAR mechanism dynamically modifies a LiDAR’s scanning range and nodding speed in real-time, allowing LiDAR data to be expanded to view a large area or condensed to view a small area of interest
Ultra-Sensitive Low-Power Magnetometer
A magnetic sensor using newly-discovered aspects of the physics of coupled nonlinear oscillator networks that deliver high-power efficiency and high sensitivity, at a lower cost and power than other magnetometers.
