  1. Flowing Water Optical Power Meter for Laser Measurements

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High Precision Devices, Inc. (HPD) proposes to use the Phase I SBIR as a vehicle to develop and market a commercially viable 25kW flowing water optical power meter (FWOPM) for industrial, research, and government applications. Building upon existing and fundamentally sound NIST design, and without sacrificing quality or accuracy, HPD will reduce costs and increase manufacturability using best prac ...

  2. Delivering a Solar Flare Forecast Model that Improves Flare Forecast (Timing and Magnitude) Accuracy by 25%

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: 943W

    Many activities and technological systems prevalent in today’s society – air traffic control and air travel, the power grids, communications, deep-water drilling operations, human spaceflight – are vulnerable to the effects of sudden flares from our Sun. Because the propagation speed for flare emission is the speed of light, it is necessary to forecast these events in order to mitigate thei ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Conformable Thermal Ground Plane

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: DTRA122002

    Miniaturized smart munitions are seeing increasing use across all branches of the Department of Defense (DoD) in order to meet the ever evolving mission needs for the U.S. warfighter. These smart micromuntions have been enabled by advances in capabilities and miniaturization of critical microelectonic and microelectromechanical systems such as sensor, navigational, communications, and triggering ...

  5. Optically Covert Detection of Trace WMD Residues

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: DTRA122003

    It is challenging to detect CBRN weapons production facilities that are hidden in residential and industrial neighborhoods. Once the weapons are manufactured, they will be sealed and removed from the site of production, so developing techniques to reveal the presence of the weapons will likely be fruitless. In this project, we will develop indicators that can be applied covertly around suspect a ...

  6. Real-Time Frequency-Selective Fading Channel Realization Generator

    SBC: Welkin Sciences, LLC            Topic: DTRA122020

    Welkin Sciences proposes to develop two run-time channel realization generators that are functionally equivalent to DTRAs ACIRF code. One is a software only implementation suitable for computer link simulations and test analysis applications. The other is a combination of software and FPGA-based firmware that can be embedded into existing and future hardware-in-the-loop (HWIL) fading channel simul ...

  7. Visible Hyperspectral Image Projector Based on Spatial Light Modulators

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    There are many applications for hyperspectral image detectors, but for the detectors to be widely accepted standardized calibration protocols must be developed. This research aims to bridge this gap through the development of a commercially available hyperspectral image projector (HIP) system. The proposed effort is to build a prototype visible HIP system to generate calibrated, realistic imagery ...

  8. Kilopixel Array Cryostat (KPAC) System for Mulit-kilogram Transition Edge Sensor (TES) Arrays

    SBC: High Precision Devices, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Transition Edge Sensor (TES) detector development at NIST has reached a level where arrays containing several thousand pixels (kilopixels) are practical and , indeed, necessary for fielding systems required for many industrial, research, and homeland security applications. Current easily deployable cryostat technology required to reach the ultra-cold operating temperatures of TES arrays (50 to 100 ...

  9. Development of Broadband VIPAs in Mid-to Long Infrared

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: N/A

    VIPA etalons are simple compact devices that offer many times more dispersion than gratings and are finding increasing application where higher spectral resolution is needed. Current VIPA designs do not work in the spectroscopically important mid- and long-infrared wavelengths, and do not have large operating bandwidths compatible with femtosecond combs. Incorporating resolution improvements from ...

  10. Engineered Substrates for “Zero-Penalty” Radiation Hardening of Ultra Deep Submicron Commercial Processes

    SBC: RADIATION ASSURED DEVICES, INC.            Topic: DTRA08003

    In this proposed Phase II program we will build on the successful Phase I program where we for the first time implemented engineered epitaxial layers based on nanostructure technology that were used to harden commercial silicon devices against radiation by minimizing collected photocurrents (electron-hole pairs) via recombination centers where we demonstrated that improved radiation hardness could ...
