  1. Electronically Actuated Pixelated Aperture for High Sensitivity WFOV Imaging in Sunlight

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF173013

    In this Phase I SBIR, a Voxtel Inc.-led team will develop and prototype a novel low-cost solar-brightness-blocking optical system for imagers to enable high-quality imaging over a wide field of view (FOV > 90 degrees) in the presence of direct sunlight within the FOV. The system will be based on a biologically inspired compound eye, with built-in small-FOV (< 3 degree) apertures to block sunlight ...

  2. Wide-Range High-Boost Turbocharging System Using Advanced Aerodynamic Design Features

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 14d

    Increasingly stringent exhaust emissions and fuel economy legislation is forcing automotive engine designers to: 1) demand increased pressure ratios from turbocharger compressors to ensure complete fuel combustion, 2) use Exhaust Gas Recirculation for emission reduction, and 3) reduce engine displacement while maintaining or even increasing output power to reduce fuel consumption. These three chan ...

  3. Mobile In-Situ Imaging of Photovoltaic Modules

    SBC: TAU SCIENCE CORPORATION            Topic: 13c

    Solar module warranties are typically 25 years or longer, a striking reliability requirement that allows only a slow performance degradation with time. There are very few products built today that are required to exhibit this type of longevity. In the past decade, to improve the quality of their products, high-performance cell manufacturers developed and implemented various inline process control ...

  4. Precision Nanoparticles for High Performance Devices

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 06d

    Nanoparticle synthesis chemistry has developed tremendously over the last several decades, achieving great control over size, shape, and composition. This has led to much greater understanding of material optical, electronic, and surface properties, and myriad applications, from solar cells and photodetectors to medical therapy. Currently, processes for building nanoparticles are largely based on ...

  5. IFS for Dark Matter Characterization

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 28g

    The high‐energy physics (HEP) community has identified integral field spectroscopy (IFS) as an area that could dramatically leverage investments in current and future sky surveys for the study of dark energy. Many lines of evidence now agree that most mass in the universe is in the form of dark matter, which interacts mainly via the force of gravity. Identification and detailed phenomenology of ...

  6. Compressive 3D imaging spectrometer

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: 04a

    Optical sensing for nuclear detonation detection involves space‐based detection within the visible wavelength. Emerging optical detectors will leverage unique diffractive optics to help enhance and discriminate signals of interest from other background emitters. Because of the precision required to achieve these objectives, innovative designs and manufacturing methods are required to benefit Nuc ...

  7. Magnetic Bearings for Supercritical CO2 Service

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: 29f

    The technology development for the supercritical CO2 (sCO2) power plant is well underway, and the first pilot plants are now under construction. The new pilot plants are sized for a 10 MW net power output; a good size to gain valuable data for larger utility scale power plants. This is also a very good size for the smaller, distributed power applications. The distributed power application is envis ...

  8. MWIR Staircase APD Receivers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF172011

    AlInAsSb multistage APDs will be designed to achieve avalanche gain up to M = 1024, and excess noise of k < 0.02. The APD structure will be based on a staircase APD architecture, where composition and field are varied sequentially such that electron ionization is promoted and hole ionization is supressed. Using band-edge modeling tools and custom numeric simulation tools, in Phase I, the staircase ...

  9. Miniature Low-Light SWIR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171081

    To enable small drones to navigate by natural nighttime skyglow, Voxtel is developing an ultra-low-leakage, 9-m-pitch, 1080p-format InGaAs photodiode array for compact, lightweight low-light (LL) short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) imaging. In a Phase II effort, the detectors cutoff wavelength will be adjusted to maximize its uncooled signal-to-noise ratio under illumination from the night sky, tradi ...

  10. High-gain Low-excess-noise Linear-mode APD for Small-pitch Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171118

    A high-sensitivity, narrow-field-of-view ladar receiver, optimized for long-range target detection and identification will be developed, characterized, and demonstrated.In Phase I avalanche photodetector (APD) and readout integrated circuit (ROIC) components were tested and validated. In Phase II, the pulse amplification, detection, and timing circuitry will be cast as a fine-pitch 1616-format arr ...
