Active Terahertz Imager for Covert Navigation Assist

Award Year / Program / Phase:
2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Award Amount:
$69,986.00
Agency / Branch:
DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator:
Richard Martin, Chief Operating Officer
Abstract:
The global war on terror has dramatically changed the environment in which today's warfighter operates. Many of the locations in theater require moving troops and equipment into areas with unimproved landing zones. Loss of situational awareness in degraded visual environments is one of the largest… More

Award Amount:
$99,932.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Christopher A. Schuetz, CTO – (302) 456-9003
Abstract:
Herein, we propose a novel approach to achieving a broadband, phased-array transmitter operating at frequencies from 100-300 GHz. Our approach is based on the concept of optically distributing a pair of locked optical tones to an array of antenna coupled photomixers. Lightweight optical fibers… More

EW Countermeasures Against Passive MMW Sensors

$998,514.00
Agency:
DOD
Principal Investigator:
Richard Martin, Chief Operating Officer – (302) 456-9003
Abstract:
In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple… More
