  1. A Balanced Photodetection Fiber-optic Link Using a Dual-Core Fiber

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N182101

    A high-fidelity RF/Analog fiber-optic link based on a balanced photodetection using a dual-output modulator and a balanced photodetector pair offers significant improvement in RF gain, low noise figure (NF) and enhanced spur-free dynamic range (SFDR). It requires the use of path-length matched dual fibers to achieve proper noise cancellation. The objective for this SBIR is to develop a balanced fi ...

  2. Multicore Fiber Optic Connector for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Chiral Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N182102

    Fiber optic data links are attractive for their wide bandwidth, low weight, electromagnetic interference immunity and ability to transmit high fidelity analog and digital radio-frequency-over-fiber (RFoF) signals. Multicore fiber (MCF) links will provide even higher capacity and density and enhance dynamic range analog links using parallel fibers of precisely equal length. The need for a high-qual ...

  3. Cellular Base Station for Low Earth Orbit Space Missions

    SBC: W5 TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N171098

    W5's N171-098 SBIR effort is to ensure information dominance by providing our warfighters with fast and reliable communication links ANYWHERE in the world. To achieve this goal, W5 has proposed augmenting the Mobile User Objective System (MUOS) coverage with MUOS call processing payloads in Low Earth Orbit (LEO). This is made possible by miniaturizing W5's Mighty MUOOS, the worlds first and only M ...

  5. Novel Airborne Multispectral Imaging System for Small Boat Detection

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N181023

    The assets of the US Navy are under constant threat of attack from small fast moving boats, such as the Fast Attack Craft (FAC) and the Fast Inshore Attack Craft (FIAC). These craft may be operated by forces from recognized adversaries such as Iran or North Korea, by Rogue States or by violent non-state actors whose ideology encourages violence against US interests. To counter this threat, the US ...

  7. Precision Machining of Composite with Waterjets

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N181028

    Waterjets are widely used to cut and trim composites and techniques have been developed to trepan and pierce materials without causing delamination or fiber break-out on the exit side. However, using waterjets to mill countersunk holes has not been demonstrated before. This project will use a patented waterjet milling process to show that waterjets can successfully mill countersunk holes in compos ...

  9. Efficient Optical Fiber Beam Homogenizer

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N181011

    The output of the traditional optics fibers produce a Gaussian-shaped output due to the internal mode structure. Moreover, the output from traditional optical fibers contains spatial non-uniformities that are undesirable for certain applications. Many advanced applications require a flat-top intensity distribution of the laser beam as it produces uniform illumination and minimizes speckle. The Nav ...
