  1. Monolithic photonic platform for high-power InGaAs/AlInAs quantum cascade laser beam combining and steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: A17AT006

    TransWave Photonics, LLC proposes to develop mid-wave infrared photonic integrated circuits based on monolithic integration of passive low-loss waveguides, thermo-optically tunable photonic elements, and quantum cascade gain sections within the same InGaAs/AlInAs/InP platform. The proposed approach will enable power combining and 2-dimensinoal beam steering of the outputs from multiple high-power ...

  2. Monolithic Slow Light Enhanced Chip-Integrated Absorption Spectrometer from 3-15 microns

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: A17AT005

    We will develop a lab-on-chip optical absorption spectrometer spanning 3-15micron molecular fingerprint region, in a single epitaxially grown heterostructure that monolithically integrates thermally tuned distributed feedback quantum cascade laser (QCL) and quantum cascade detector (QCD) arrays with slotted photonic crystal waveguides (SPCWs) in a mid-infrared InGaAs passive photonic waveguide. In ...

  3. Civil Affairs Information and Military Sustainment in the Megacity Environment (M-CAVE)

    SBC: G&C SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A17036

    Knowledge-Based Systems Incorporated (KBSI) proposes Mega-City Analysis and Visualization Environment (M-CAVE) in response to the Army SBIR Civil Affairs Information and Military Sustainment in the Megacity Environment (topic number A17-036). The M-CAVE technology will provide users with advanced yet simple-to-use influence models, methods, and visualization to help Civil Affairs teams assess, com ...

  4. Plasma Reactor for Production of Extended Solids

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18023

    Recent research has shown evidence for formation of carbon suboxide polymer and polymeric-carbon monoxide at near-ambient pressures in small-scale nonthermal plasma discharge reactors. Carbon suboxide polymer and polymeric-carbon monoxide are examples of novel solids obtained from simple gas molecules such as CO. The solid formation rates achieved in these studies are too low (< 1 g/h) and the exi ...

  5. New Reserve Batteries for Electronic Fuzing

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18027

    Reserve battery technology for munition fuzes has hardly changed in the past 20 years.Existing reserve batteries such as thermal batteries and lithium oxyhalide chemistries have met the requirements of long shelf life, and ability to operate under harsh conditions and large acceleration and spin forces.However, new fuze battery technologies are needed to meet the extended range, precision guided, ...

  6. Lithium Batteries with Durable Silicon Honeycomb (SILICOMB) Anodes

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: A18036

    Batteries are used to power dismounted soldier worn electronics and play a critical role for readiness and agility factors, two top challenges identified by the US Army to stay as the premium force globally.In laymans terms, no electrical power, no success in missions.Rechargeable lithium-ion batteries use graphite anode and have specific energy values of

  7. Enabling LPI/LPD single-frequency full duplex for tactical communication systems

    SBC: GenXComm, Inc            Topic: A18053

    The goal of this proposal is to enable improved tactical networks based on single-frequency full duplex communication systems. GenXComm has developed a unique physical layer that enables wideband, tunable interference cancellation. This physical layer forms the foundation for the MAC and routing designs in this proposal. We propose to use single-frequency full duplex to enable tactical systems thr ...

  8. Composite Core Inductive Voltage Divider Automatic Test Equipment Using Continuously Varying Inductive Coupling

    SBC: K Sciences GP, LLC            Topic: A18082

    K Sciences proposes to develop a prototype, inductive voltage divider (IVD) producing a continuously variable ratio transformer capable of high resolution voltage division tuning and calibration, wide input voltage and frequency ranges, and state-of-the-art 0.01 ppm resolution for all ratios. The prototype IVD will integrate an innovative core design providing enhanced performance through the 10 H ...

  9. Substrate materials to grow single crystal quality Magnetic films by Liquid Phase Epitaxy (LPE)

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: A18086

    Yttrium Iron Garnet (YIG) films have enhanced defense capabilities in an increasingly congested RF environment.Single-crystal YIG films exhibit the best performance, showing the lowest losses and sharpest linewidths, but their growth requires specialized lattice-matched substrates.Nanohmics, working in collaboration with the University of Texas and Ohio State University, proposes to develop a dome ...

  10. Predictive Visualizations to Aid Rapid Decision Making

    SBC: FoVI 3D, Inc.            Topic: A18049

    Analysis of high-dimensional, cross-domain, heterogeneous battlespace data generates significant cognitive burden on users. Collaboration over a shared dataset can also cause cognitive burden as multiple users do not always have the same experience level for making sense of the displayed information. Next generation hardware and software can reduce the cognitive burden present in data-analysis via ...
