  4. Programmable Picosat Transceiver

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: AF112072

    ABSTRACT:The goal of the Space Test Program is to enable the US Air Force to rapidly develop emerging space technologies by providing economical flight opportunities to increase a technologys TRL. Over the past decade, the CubeSat form factor has emerged as an economical platform for testing technologies that can be packaged within the 10x10x30 cm form factor. However, the lack of a programmable S ...

  7. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  8. Multi-channel tunable ultra-stable source for all-fiber space-based atomic interactions

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF151080

    ABSTRACT:The development of compact, reliable inertial navigation systems is essential for applications where GPS-based systems are ineffective or unavailable. This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing an ultra-stable, compact, robust, integrated laser source suitable for atom-based precision navigation and timing (PNT) systems. AdvRs design is enabled by capitalizing on well- ...

  9. Automated Scaling Software for Oblique Incidence Ionograms

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF151098

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this solicitation is to develop real-time automatic scaling software for oblique ionograms (OIs). The NWRA team has developed an extensive HF propagation computational tool set, which includes a capability called APEx (Automated Point Extraction) for automatically finding vertical ionogram (VI) traces within an ionogram image. APEx does not require pre-separation of the O ...

  10. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...
