  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. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  3. Advanced Spectrally Selective Materials for Obscurant Applications

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    As infrared (IR) electo-optical sensors improve in both availability and quality a strong need exists to have comparable improvements in the performance of military obscurants within the IR band. Conventional approaches for creating effective IR obscurants have relied primarily on shaped metal particles with high aspect ratios (e.g. rods, flakes). While efficient it is difficult to create very ...

  4. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased array techniques. Herein, we present a concept for creat ...

  5. A Handheld, Low Cost, and High Throughput Sensor for Fatty Acid Methyl Ester Detection and Quantifications in Military Fuels

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A12058

    Although biodiesels have been increasingly used in automobiles, trains, commercial aircrafts and heating systems, they are not currently used in the military aircrafts and land vehicles because they typically do not meet the JP-8 performance criteria as specified by MIL-PRF-83133E. Unintentional contaminations by the biodiesels into the jet fuels can introduce adverse effects, including engine ope ...

  6. DIPAIN-Based Handheld Assay for the Detection of T-2 Toxin in Water Using a Handheld Reader

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A10AT021

    A rapid assay for the detection of T2 trichothecene mycotoxin in water is proposed that will use ANP Technology, Inc.'s established handheld reader and rapid acetylcholinesterase (AChE) inhibitor test ticket format. Dipain-II and other candidate Dipain derivatives will be immobilized on cellulose and other solid supports mounted as discs in wells on the existing test ticket, similar to the AChE i ...

  7. Characterization Of Noise And Detectivity Of Nano-BiCMOS Photo-Detectors

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A09089

    Low light level visible and infrared imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition. Our newly developed low-light-level nano-BiCMOS silicon photo-detector has been experimentally proven to consistently deliver in-pixel high-gain amplification to boost external quantum efficiency and photo current signal without increased dark current. The same class of detector ...

  8. Nano-Passivation of GaSb/InAs Strained Layer Superlattices Infrared Detector

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08103

    Long-wavelength infrared (LWIR) imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition, since human body radiation peaks in LWIR. Despite the enhanced wavelength coverage, the GaSb/InAs type-II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) detector still exhibits relatively high surface leakage current and its associated noises. With an industrially proven nano-material, we propose ...

  9. Active Terahertz Imager for Covert Navigation Assist

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A10037

    The global war on terror has dramatically changed the environment in which today's warfighter operates. Many of the locations in theater require moving troops and equipment into areas with unimproved landing zones. Loss of situational awareness in degraded visual environments is one of the largest threats to rotary wing aircraft operating in these areas. Phase Sensitive Innovations has built a pas ...
