  1. Non-Pyro Battlefield Effects Replication

    SBC: Welkins, LLC            Topic: A18091

    Our objective is to design a multi-aspect Battlefield Effects Replication (BFER) system, assess its feasibility and technical merit, and lay the framework for future prototyping and development. In Phase I, we will develop a modular BFER system comprising a portable, ruggedized cradle with universal docking system for easy installation, reconfiguration and control of multiple "plug-n-play" modules ...

  2. Advanced Materials for Gamma Spectrometry

    SBC: Field Viewers Ltd.            Topic: A17138

    We propose to examine the approaches for producing a single specifimen of the Cd1-xZnxSeyTe1-y material for gamma spectrometry. The key success criteria for the growth is the detector will be used as grown, implying no mining of the parts around subgrain boundries will be required. The outcome of such a growth is streamlined production process for the detectors. In phase II Field Viewers will use ...

  3. Scalable Manufacturing of Functional Yarns for Textile-based Energy Storage by Natural Fiber Welding

    SBC: Natural Fiber Welding, Inc.            Topic: A17AT013

    Natural fiber welding (NFW) is a disruptive manufacturing technique that has broad applications to sustainable and functional materials/composites manufacturing. The goal of this project is to utilize proprietary new NFW techniques developed by Natural Fiber Welding, Incorporated (NFW, Inc.) to fabricate high performance supercapacitor yarns. The functional composite yarns produced will demonstrat ...

  4. High Speed Low Loss Quantum Optical Switch for 1550nm band

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: A16095

    Optical switches that are simultaneously fast (sub-nanosecond), low loss (< 2 dB), and add low noise (< 10-4 added noise photons per mode) are not available commercially, but would be an important tool for manipulating quantum signals. It is important for such a switch to operate near 1550 nm, as this is the lowest loss wavelength in standard optical fibers and as such is desirable for distributin ...

  5. Realization of a High Power MWIR Laser with Coherently Combined Emitters

    SBC: Digital Optics Technologies, Inc.            Topic: A16099

    We propose a technology for coherent combination of 36 high power diode lasers at ~4.9 micron , each with a CW power of ~5W. The underlying principle behind this approach was demonstrated by us earlier [Optics Letter, 30, 3012-3014 (2005)]. Briefly, we will split a beam from a master diode laser into multiple copies using angularly multiplexed gratings, written using light at 532 nm. These copies ...

  8. A Compact II-VI Colloidal Quantum Dot Imaging System for High-Speed and High-Resolution Full Stokes Polarimetry

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A16130

    Infrared polarimetry has proven to enhance target detection and tracking in cluttered environments, and is of significant importance to high energy laser weapon targeting systems. Modern state of the art infrared polarimeters possess numerous limitations that render them impractical for tracking at high slew-rates. Efforts have been made to implement micropolarization filters directly onto a foca ...

  9. Colloidal Quantum Dots for Cost Reduction in EO/IR Detectors for Infrared Imaging

    SBC: SOAL Technologies LLC            Topic: A17029

    There is a strong and urgent need for developing low-cost high performance infrared detector technology that can operate at higher temperatures (> 250 K). Over the years, many new and innovative technologies have emerged that have made some progress towards this goal, but the gap between high performance and low-cost has been difficult to bridge, until recently. Since the development of colloida ...

  10. Colloidal Quantum Dots for Cost Reduction in EO/IR Detectors for Infrared Imaging

    SBC: Episensors, Inc.            Topic: A17029

    While state-of-the-art microbolometers demonstrate impressive capabilities for low-cost uncooled longwave infrared (LWIR) imaging, there is currently a need for low-cost, midwave infrared (MWIR) imaging systems capable of high performance with fast frame rates at high operating temperatures.HgTe colloidal quantum dot (CQD) focal plane arrays (FPAs), developed by our team, are MWIR photon detectors ...
