Award List:

THz Differential Absorption Radar for Bioparticulate Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory
Principal Investigator: Elliott Brown, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $99,383.00
RI Contact: Les Deutsch
Abstract:
Recent measurements of the electromagnetic transmission through bacillus subtillus, an anthrax facsimile, have revealed absorption resonances in the THz region. A system-level analysis previously carried out by the proposer has shown that at least oneof the resonances (centered at 14.05 cm-1, or… More

THz Differential Absorption Radar for Bioparticulate Detection

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: JET PROPULSION LABORATORY
Principal Investigator: Elliott Brown, Principal Investigator
Award Amount: $0.00
RI Contact: Robert Cox
Abstract:
The Phase-I effort has produced three key results as the foundation for the Phase-II proposal. First, vector network analyzer measurements of a Bacillus subtillis (an Anthrax surrogate) sample has yielded promising absorption signatures around 425 and 445GHz. These are believed to be the most… More

ErAs:GaAs Photomixers for High-Resolution THz Spectroscopy

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOC / NIST
Principal Investigator: Elayne Brown
Award Amount: $74,972.00
Abstract:
A new type of THz photomixer will be developed using a submicron interdigitated-electrode structure fabricated on an Eras:GaAs ultrafast photoconductive layer, an AIAs heat spreader and an AIGas/AIAs dielecric mirror. The Eras:GaAs-based photomixer will provide extremely wide tuning bandwidth (>1… More

Ultrafast Detection and Acquisition Radar for Ballistics Defense

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2005 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Elayne Brown, Managing Partner
Award Amount: $70,000.00
Abstract:
This project entails the design and demonstration of a X-band retrodirective noise-correlating (RNC) radar designed specifically for bullet detection and shooter geolocation. Preliminary research carried out for the DoD (U.S. Army Research Office and DARPA) of such a system has already demonstrated… More

Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar: Fast Detection of Small Projectiles Plus Imaging of the Scene

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Elayne Brown, Managing Partner
Award Amount: $497,982.00
Abstract:
During the Phase II effort our primary objective is to demonstrate the X-band retrodirective noise correlating (RNC) radar out to approximately 200 yards on targets having an RCS of about ~30 dBsm (50-caliber bullet end-on) or greater. This will require a dual-mode operation: a noise radar mode and… More

Integration of 360-Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Panormic Camera for Real-Time Detection and Imaging of Ballistic Threats

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / DARPA
Research Institution: Fordham University
Principal Investigator: Elayne Brown, Managing Partner
Award Amount: $99,979.00
RI Contact: Laura Ebert
Abstract:
Retrodirective pseudorandom-noise-correlating radar has already been demonstrated on small ballistic targets, such as sniper bullets. And detection occurs with enough range (a few tens of meters) to acquire bearing information (rangebin, azimuth, and elevation) and therefore develop a track in… More

Integration of 360-Retrodirective Noise Correlating Radar with Panoramic Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Research Institution: Fordham University
Principal Investigator: Elayne Brown, Managing Partner – (818) 795-3247
Award Amount: $749,769.00
RI Contact: Greg Recine
Abstract:
This proposal aims to develop and demonstrate a novel fused sensor system capable of detecting bullets in real time and over a 360o field-of-view. The bullet detection is based on a retrodirective noise-correlating radar that also provides the bullet bearing in real time. The bearing information… More
