RNET Technologies and Ball Aerospace & Technologies Corp. (Ball) in Colorado are responding to this SBIR topic"AF103-188: Readouts for Energetic, High-Speed Event Sensing". We are collaborating with Ball because they have tremendous experience in the detection of energetic events and we will utilize their expertise in this SBIR. Ball has been a chief supplier of equipment and algorithms focused on ISR (intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance), MW (missile warning), MASINT (measurement and signature intelligence), and BSC (Battle-Space Characterization), including self-protection systems. Ball has also developed an innovative and unique FlashPoint suite for detection of energetic events. Both RNET and Ball will collaborate by designing dual sampling (both 30 Hz and 10 KHz) ROIC, which will make use of FlashPoint algorithm suite to capture energetic events. BENEFIT: The ROIC that will be developed in this SBIR will be primarily commercialized through Ball and they are the ideal commercialization partner. The plan is that in Phase II we will ensure that the ROIC will be hybridized with an MWIR detector that Ball selects and the assembly is extensively tested by Ball. We will also work with Ball in Phase III so that the prototype will be transitioned to applications/customers Ball selects to market this technology. We will also sign a licensing agreement with Ball so that this SBIR project will generate commercialization revenue.
