  1. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  2. Narrowband Perfect Absorber using Metamaterials

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: CBD11102

    Current bolometers are broadband detectors and tend to absorb broad IR spectrum for thermal imaging. A key issue with these systems is the lack of sensitivity of the sensors in target detection due to blackbody radiation limit. As a result, one of the many important applications such as low concentration chemical detection cannot be performed. A solution to this problem is to employ cryogenic syst ...

  3. Ultra High-Speed Spectroradiometry for Contamination Reconnaissance and Surveillance

    SBC: SEMIOTIC ENGINEERING ASSOC. LLC            Topic: CBD09107

    We propose to develop and demonstrate the prototype for a novel technology to be used as a ultra-high-performance, ultra-high-speed spectrometry engine at the heart of Thermal Luminescence systems for standoff detection of surface contaminants. The proposed system will be able to detect transient thermal events in the fundamental vibrational fingerprint region of chemical warfare agents and of mos ...

  4. ELECTROMAGNETIC ENVIRONMENTAL EFFECTS WITHIN A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT

    SBC: MISSION RESEARCH CORP.            Topic: N/A

    MRC PROPOSES TO DEVELOP A SAFETY PERFORMANCE INDICATOR (PI) OF THE ELECTROMAGNETIC (EM) PROTECTION STATUS OF A NUCLEAR POWER PLANT (NPP). WE BELIEVE THAT SUCH A PI IS NEEDED BECAUSE: (1) EM ENVIRONMENTAL POLLUTION IS ON THE INCREASE,(2) ADDITIONAL EM THREATS MUST BE EVALUATED, AND (3) DISRUPTION OF NPP OPERATIONS BY EM EFFECTS CAN AND MUST BE AVOIDED. PREVIOUS STUDIES HAVE ADDRESSED THE ISSUE OF E ...
