  1. Enhanced Buried Explosive Detection System

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A02037

    In this three Phase program, ADA Technologies proposes to develop and demonstrate a novel, active trace explosives sampling system/method that will be easily adapted for use with existing commercially available explosive detection sensors. This will lead to a generic-interface sampling device that will directly couple with currently deployed trace explosives detection sensors. The active samplin ...

  2. A Liquid-Crystal on Silicon Infrared Scene Projector

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: A03064

    This proposal outlines the research and development of a novel infrared scene projection system based on Liquid Crystal on Silicon (LCoS) technology. This technology combines the light modulating capabilities of liquid crystal with the compact, active electronics of VLSI circuitry. The result is a mass-producible, inexpensive, compact, low-power, high frame rate device. This proposal addresses ...

  3. Low Cost Molded Optics for Small Caliber Projectiles

    SBC: Cdm Optics, Inc.            Topic: A02022

    The Phase I effort demonstrated the feasibility of a low cost IR imaging system for use in high lethality, fire-and-forget projectiles. The imaging system was designed specifically for the Army's Light Fighter Lethality (LFL) Autonomous Seeker Projectile. The Phase I work combined two innovative technologies, an optical systems design process and a moldable IR material, to create a low cost opti ...

  4. Optical Components to Reduce Retroreflection from Uncooled Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Cdm Optics, Inc.            Topic: A03105

    The use of visible and long wave infrared (LWIR) sensors is limited in many covert environments by their unacceptably high reflectivity. The high reflectivity makes these systems susceptible to detection by search CW laser systems. There are many traditional methods for reducing optical reflection, but most adversely affect the final system image quality and are not cost effective for large volu ...

  5. Optical Components to Reduce Retroreflection from Uncooled Infrared Focal Plane Array

    SBC: Cdm Optics, Inc.            Topic: A03105

    The use of long wave infrared (LWIR) sensors is limited in many covert environments by their unacceptably high reflectivity. The high reflectivity makes them susceptible to detection by search CW laser systems. There are many traditional methods for the reduction of optical signature, but most adversely affect the final system image quality and are not cost effective for large volume application ...

  6. Ultra-Compact Doppler LIDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) for Unmanned Aerial/Ground Vehicles

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03048

    The rapid development UAVs and UGVs for the Future Combat System is producing requirements for remote sensing of volumetric winds and wind hazards such as wind shear, gusts, and clear air turbulence for safe and efficient vehicle operation. Mission specific parameters such as aerosol plume detection and tracking, terrain mapping, and helicopter rotor turbulence detection must also be measured. T ...

  7. Development of a Human/Robot Control Interface

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A02035

    The ability of remote robotic vehicles to effectively achieve their targeted tasks is dependent, in large part, on how well they can be controlled. The human machine interface and related controls are critical to successful tele-operated and semi-autonomous operations. In Phase I, AnthroTronix, Inc. showed the feasibility of two interface concepts for robot control: 1) An instrumented glove w ...

  8. Compact, Efficient, and Robust Eyesafe Ladar Transmitter

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03151

    The Army has identified a need for a laser transmitter for the NetFires Loitering Attack Missile and Precision Attack Missile programs, and for similar ladar systems in expendable munitions. CTI has performed a detailed trade study which shows that current 1 or 1.5 micron laser architectures (based on bulk Ho, Er and Tm lasers, OPOs/OPAs and Raman lasers) are poorly-matched to Army requirements ...

  9. Landmine Detection

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03107

    Buried landmines produce distinct seismic surface vibrations when excited by acoustic or pressure energy. Many approaches to this problem are being investigated. To date the biggest problem is the slow demining rate due to dwell time requirements. The platform speed is governed by the necessary dwell time (100 ms for 10 Hz resolution) and the number of simultaneous measurements. To support a 1 ...

  10. Compact, Efficient, and Robust Eyesafe Ladar Transmitter

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A03151

    The US Army has identified the need for a compact, lightweight, self-contained, electrically efficient, ruggedizable laser transmitter for 3-D imaging ladar applications. The transmitter cost, weight, footprint, and performance requirements (>5 W, 20-30 kHz, 5-20 ns) cannot be simultaneously met using current transmitter technology based on bulk Er, Ho, Tm lasers, OPOs, OPAs or Raman lasers. Conv ...
