  1. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to>60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and array of PDs that work from DC through entire W-band. De ...

  2. Satellite Optical Backplane

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF103097

    ABSTRACT: there is a clear need for a radically new interconnect architecture that minimizes the routing delay through the backplane to enable increased performance, reduced costs, and faster time to market. To this end, we propose the development of a space compatible optically interconnected backplane with reconfigurable routing fabric. By removing the electrical interconnections between logi ...

  3. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (SCC-WMD) requires transformational materials technology to support the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) of personnel and materials associated with weapons of mass destruction (WMD) development, manufacturing, and proliferation. Voxtel, Inc. proposes to fa ...

  4. ADIDRUS: Using Deception to Protect and Defend UAVs

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Unmanned vehicles are becoming an increasingly valuable tool within the Department of Defense, and related technologies are beginning to appear in commercial systems. As their utilization grows, these unmanned systems will become a significant target for cyber attack. Indeed, existing Defense Department unmanned aerial vehicles (UAVs) have already been subjected to attack by various adversaries. ...

  5. Optimized Taggant Delivery Systems

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112002

    ABSTRACT: In this Phase II SBIR, a Voxtel Inc. led team will develop a lightweight small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) delivered payload, including targeting and fire-control sub-system, taggant dissemination hardware, and taggant reservoir, that is capable of covertly delivering optical taggants. Because the performance of auto-pilots and video trackers is limited by SRPA system constraints, t ...

  6. Improved Hyperspectral Readout Integrated Circuit

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112135

    ABSTRACT: To increase the performance of current and next-generation imaging spectrometers for military applications, in this Phase II SBIR effort, a flexible readout integrated circuit (ROIC), optimized for hyperspectral imaging (HSI) will be developed with enhanced capabilities. The ROIC features a 1024 (spatial) x 512 (spectral) format, with 20 micron pitch pixel elements, and has been develop ...

  7. "Night Glow"Short Wave Infrared LED (NSLED) Image Projector Development

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF131098

    ABSTRACT: This project aims to develop a Short Wave Infrared band image projector to provide real time detector stimulation with high dynamic range. Our emitter technology is based on GaInAsSb quaternary semiconductor LED arrays hybridized to CMOS read-in integrated circuits. This project leverages read-in circuit design and control electronics that were developed under SLEDS - a longer wavelengt ...

  9. High Efficiency, Large-area, 1550 nm InGaAs Photodiodes

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A stable, well characterized InGaAs materials growth and photodetector fabrication process will be used to fabricate matched photodiodes optimized for balanced homodyne detection. The 1-mm-diameter p-i-n photodetectors will be manufactured back-illuminated with a 5-micron absorber, allowing residual light to reflect off the front-side metal to make a double pass through the active layer. Ultra-hig ...

  10. Efficient Low-Dark-Count Detector for Photon Counting

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel has demonstrated efficient high-speed photon counting with thresholded linear-mode avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers using multi-gain-stage InGaAs/InAIAs APDs. In contrast to Geiger APDs, thresholded photon-counting linear APD receivers are thought not to suffer afterpulsing, and can support maximum count rates (MCR) up to 2 or 3 orders of magnitude faster than Geiger APDs. However, the ...
