The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Monolithic Beam Steerer for High Power Mid-infrared Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: N182109

    In this SBIR program, Omega Optics, University of Texas, Austin and Adtech Photonics propose a complete monolithic epitaxial device, with no wafer bonding, for surface emitting 2D non-mechanical optical beam steering at 4.6 micron wavelength. Two methods will be investigated: first, with slant etch normal emitters for azimuthal and elevation steering at a single wavelength using thermal phase shif ...

  2. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...

  3. Fooling Computer Vision Classifiers with Adversarial Examples

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182127

    The Lynntech team proposes to develop a Computer Vision FoolKit system that integrates cutting-edge approaches to systematically evaluate physically realizable adversarial attacks against several leading computer vision classifiers. It has been noted that most deep neural networks are demonstrably vulnerable to adversarial examples, even in the form of small-magnitude changes in intensities of the ...

  4. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference

    SBC: KSA, LLC            Topic: N182135

    The Base and Option propose applying machine learning (ML) deep learning (DL) methods to estimate the Waveguide Invariant (WGI). The ML and DL application also provide prior parameterization of the waveguide. Data fusion methods generate Energy Spectral Density (ESD) and Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) to characterize the uncertainty of the sound speed profile in the water column from which t ...

  5. Mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers with highly efficient heat extraction architecture

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182113

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin proposes to demonstrate a new active region and thermal packaging configuration for the mid-wave infrared quantum cascade lasers that provide both high modal overlap with the laser active region and a dramatically reduced thermal impedance of the laser compared to the current state-of-the-art. The proposed laser desig ...

  6. Cognitive Radar for Maritime/Littoral Surveillance

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N182117

    The United States Navys radar systems provide essential missions in contested environments spanning from long range air surveillance to air marshalling and weapons queuing. Performance and affordability of these radars is paramount. Performance encompasses the inherent ability to execute the mission and overcoming sophisticated threats and adversarial tactics: technical capability and system avail ...

  7. Anti-Reflective Surface Structures for Missile Domes

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N182105

    Next-generation infrared (IR) seekers will have an aerodynamically-engineered nose cone geometry with a significantly higher degree of curvature compared to conventional hemispherical domes. To prevent unwanted specular + diffuse reflections that obscure the IR focal plane array, the interior of the dome should ideally be treated with an anti-reflective (AR) layer that suppresses stray light refle ...

  8. Weather Avoidance Sensor Systems for Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: RDRTec, Inc.            Topic: N182099

    RDRTec with Raytheon as a subcontractor and transition partner proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate feasibility of enhanced approaches to unmanned aircraft weather avoidance using a combination of organic weather radar and electro-optics. The goal of this effort is to provide increased safety against weather hazards while minimizing unnecessary deviations by using visual cues and measurabl ...

  9. System/Method for Onboard Engine and Bleed Air Detoxification

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N182098

    TDA Research, Inc. (TDA) proposes a photocatalytic oxidizer which interacts with ultraviolet light to destroy organophosphate and volatile organic compounds (VOC) in engine bleed air. We will determine the optimal wavelengths for the destruction of bleed air contaminants, including the organo-phosphorous contaminants such as tricresyl phosphate (TCP). In Phase I, we will evaluate the performance o ...

  10. Portable Ruggedized Energy Efficient Medical Sterilizer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182096

    Current field sterilizers are large, power-intensive systems that present a logistical burden to forward-deployed resuscitative surgical facilities. There is a need for a low-cost, person-transportable medical sterilizer capable of sterilizing small surgical tools and trays in a Role 1-2 tactical environment. This Phase I SBIR will design and test a breadboard sterilization system that demonstrate ...
