Award List:

Non-Cooperative Vessel Imaging and Tracking (NVIT)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DHS
Principal Investigator: Roger Backhus – (419) 866-0936
Award Amount: $99,999.40
Abstract:
Achieving and maintaining effective control of our nation`s maritime borders which comprise 95,000 miles of shoreline and navigable waters, and 361 ports is an ongoing challenge. Due to greater numbers, increased maneuverability and reduced observables, smaller vessels pose unique and special… More

Novel Coating Materials for RF Windows

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOE
Principal Investigator: Patrick Fisher, Dr.
Award Amount: $1,000,000.00
Abstract:
The multipactor effect is a major challenge that is encountered in a number of areas involving high-power radio frequency or microwave systems. Particle accelerator systems associated with high energy physics research are limited by radio frequency window breakdown largely due to multipaction. The… More

Multipaction Resistant RF Components for Satellites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Patrick Fisher, Senior Scientist – (724) 483-3946
Award Amount: $99,934.00
Abstract:
Satellite RF components suffer from an additional design limitation that does not concern their terrestrial counterparts: multipaction, an electron avalanche effect that can reduce performance or permanently damage devices under certain conditions. To avoid the onset of this effect, the traditional… More

Automated Analysis of RF Effects Data

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Stephen D. Freeman, Principal Engineer – (724) 483-3946
Award Amount: $744,707.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Emerging Directed Energy weapon systems are particularly attractive to Combat Commanders due to their graduated effects, light-speed propagation, minimum collateral damage and deep magazines relative to kinetic weaponry. There are multiple efforts within the military which aim to… More

Alkali Resistant Windows for DPAL Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Patrick Fisher, Senior Scientist – (724) 483-3946
Award Amount: $99,997.00
Abstract:
Diode pumped alkali lasers have the potential to provide the required high efficiency for a laser-based missile defense system. However, traditional anti-reflective coating materials are not resistant to the alkali vapor environments associated with such systems, contaminating and degrading rapidly… More

Electromagnetic Detection of FIB Facilitated IC Modifications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / MDA
Principal Investigator: Bogdan Pathak, Senior R&D Engineer – (724) 483-3946
Award Amount: $149,927.00
Abstract:
Because Critical Program Information (CPI) is often embedded in integrated circuits, adversaries must now attack at the die level. As a result, Focused Ion Beams (FIBs) have become a preferred tool for reverse engineering. FIBs can bypass or create circuit elements at the lowest levels; however,… More

Inline Material Sensor (IMS)

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Patrick J. Fisher, Principal Scientist – (412) 221-3223
Award Amount: $149,999.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Sheets, or"mats"of EMI protective materials have critical value for many systems of strategic importance for the Department of Defense (DoD). It is of great importance that all such materials that are integrated into fielded systems are fully capable of meeting shielding… More

Multipaction Resistant RF Components for Satellites

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Patrick Fisher, Senior Scientist – (724) 483-3946
Award Amount: $749,942.00
Abstract:
Satellite RF components suffer from an additional design limitation that does not concern their terrestrial counterparts: multipaction, an electron avalanche effect that can reduce performance or permanently damage devices under certain conditions. To avoid the onset of this effect, the traditional… More

Individualized Reradiating RF Tag with Unique DNA and Integrated Antenna for Enhanced Anti-Counterfeit Markings

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Bogdan Pathak, Senior R&D Engineer – (419) 866-0936
Award Amount: $99,998.00
Abstract:
This proposal seeks to develop a unique tag that will re-emit an individualized signature when in the presence of a low level RF field to definitively determine the lineage of a marked part. The signature detection apparatus will leverage Nokomis"Advanced Detection of Electronic Counterfeits… More

Automated RF Sensor System for Shielding Material Characterization

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2013 / SBIR / Phase II
