Award List:

Infrared Metamaterials for Emission Phase Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: Sandia National Laboratories
Principal Investigator: David Shelton, President, CEO – (407) 920-4844
Award Amount: $99,699.00
RI Contact: Paul Clem
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Electromagnetically-resonating infrared metamaterial elements may be used to control the phase of emitted radiation across a planar surface. Such a coated surface can be designed to produce a highly directional emitted wavefront from a large aperture high-angular-resolution array. Active… More

Tunable Fresnel-Zone Lens for Agile Wavefront Control

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / STTR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Research Institution: University of Central Florida
Principal Investigator: David Shelton, President, CEO – (407) 920-4844
Award Amount: $97,584.00
RI Contact: Glenn Boreman
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: Fresnel-zone lens can meet many of the Air Force's requirements for conformal aperture technology including light-weight, large aperture size, and the ability to conform to a curved surface. However, aberrations limit the effective field-of-view of static Fresnel-zone lens, and the… More

Profile Feature Extractor (PFx) Sensor Component for Persistent ISR Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David Shelton, President, CEO – (407) 920-4844
Award Amount: $69,970.00
Abstract:
Currently no source exists for detector pixels arranged in custom arrays suitable for use with the PFx sensor. Plasmonics Inc proposes to become a source for such detectors by designing a new fabrication process for custom microbolometer arrays using a novel vanadium oxide alloy. This new bolometer… More

Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: David Shelton, President / CEO – (407) 574-3107
Award Amount: $99,418.00
Abstract:
The research and development proposed here will examine using sparse-linear-detector-array configurations to lower the power consumption of personnel detection sensors. Plasmonics will design and test a bread board LWIR pyroelectric sensor to show that detector arrays with sufficient sensitivity to… More

Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2014 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: David Shelton, President – (407) 574-3107
Award Amount: $940,633.00
Abstract:
In the first phase of this program Plasmonics was able to make a breadboard profile sensor using COTS optics and a pyroelectric-linear-detector array that was able to detect a human by subtending greater than 16 pixels across the target at a range of up to 75 m. Based on work in Phase I, it was… More
