Award List:

Advanced antennas for air vehicle flight test evaluation.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, VP Programs
Award Amount: $79,599.00
Abstract:
When flight testing missiles and other high performance vehicles, flight instrumentation antennas are required to support telemetry, data link, flight termination systems (flight safety), and tracking beacons. Integration of these antennas onto the test missiles creates challenges with respect to… More

Advanced antennas for air vehicle flight test evaluation.

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, Vice President of Program
Award Amount: $297,345.00
Abstract:
A low profile L-Band antenna was developed in Phase 1 that can by directly swapped out for its current commercial off-the-shelf counterpart. The new antenna, with slight additional optimization, has essentially the antenna performance (gain/pattern) as its COTS counterpart, but has significantly… More

Affordable Broadband Radome

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, VP- Programs
Award Amount: $79,324.00
Abstract:
Supersonic air vehicles require nose radomes that can withstand high temperatures as well as have high RF transmission over wider radio frequency bandwidths. Typically nose radomes are built from monolithic, solid wall ceramic materials which inherently have a very narrow frequency band over which… More

V/W Band Airborne Radomes

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, VP Programs – (858) 537-6260
Award Amount: $149,709.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Next generation satellite communications must address the issue of congested radio frequency (RF) airspace and the need to transmit dramatically larger quantities of data at very high data rates. A solution is to transmit and receive at higher frequencies in the V-and W-bands.… More

Modeling and Simulation for Combined Space Environment Chambers

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Neal Carron, Chief Scientist – (805) 845-8880
Award Amount: $149,928.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The overall objective for the Phase 1 Program is to develop a physics-based source engineering code that predicts effects of the STAT ion source primary incidence and scatter, secondary backscatter, and residual source effects on targets of interest. The code will be developed in a… More

Underwater Internal Imaging and Diagnostic Tool for Limpet Mines and IEDs for the EOD Mission

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Thomas Old, Chief Scientist – (805) 845-8880
Award Amount: $79,972.00
Abstract:
Imaging of underwater mines poses many challenges. A passive imaging system using muon tomography is proposed which will enable details of the components of an underwater mine to be imaged without touching the mine itself. Muons are naturally occurring, high energy subatomic particles that are… More

Affordable Broadband Radome

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, VP Programs – (858) 537-6260
Award Amount: $749,829.00
Abstract:
Supersonic air vehicles require nose radomes that can withstand high temperatures as well as have high RF transmission over wider radio frequency bandwidths. Typically nose radomes are built from solid laminate or monolithic ceramic materials which inherently have a very narrow frequency band over… More

Submarine Radar Vulnerability Reduction

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Keith Loss, VP Programs – (858) 537-6260
Award Amount: $79,910.00
Abstract:
Submarine masts include optical sensors that provide the crew hemispherical viewing capability at the surface. There may be multiple optical sensors distributed circumferentially around the mast. These masts can include treatments to reduce their radar cross section (RCS). The optical windows for… More
