  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  5. Miniature Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (MUAV)

    SBC: System Dynamics International Incorporated            Topic: SOCOM05011

    The U.S. Special Operations Command (USSOCOM) has identified a need to develop a miniature unmanned air vehicle (MUAV) that can be launched from an airborne platform by a single crewman and subsequently transmit real-time video images for gathering intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) information. The MUAV will provide real-time combat identification information in difficult to ob ...

  6. Individual Cooling Equipment

    SBC: CESARONI TECHNOLOGY INCORPORATED            Topic: SOCOM06009

    Military ground mobility vehicles often operate in areas of high heat with no environmental conditioning systems for cooling the individual soldier or critical vehicle electronic systems. Typical vehicle climate control systems are large refrigerant-based systems that are not man portable. SOCOM has expressed a desire for cooling equipment that is man portable for short periods (~ 3 hours). Thi ...

  7. Universal Longwire Antenna Module for Unmanned Aerial Vehicles and Aircraft

    SBC: Management Services Group, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM06003

    In this Phase I effort, Global Technical Systems (GTS) proposes to research and develop a concept for a lightweight airborne Universal Longwire Antenna Module (ULAM) to be used for broadcasting Psychological Operations (PSYOPS) in the commercial AM and Short Wave bands at high or low power. The lightweight design enables installation on a wide variety of manned and unmanned aircraft.

  8. HIGH EFFICIENCY COMPACT MODELING OF RADIATION EFFECTS

    SBC: Lynguent, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05001

    The objective of this research is to develop beta versions of tools for automatically migrating radiation effects predicted in TCAD level tools to compact modeling tools. This transition will enable compact models that possess radiation effects to be quickly generated, which can then be used in circuit design activity. This approach is a substantial improvement over the current ad hoc approaches. ...

  9. Inexpensive, disposable radiation detectors

    SBC: NANOPTICS, INC.            Topic: DTRA082007

    This proposal concerns the detection of Special Nuclear Materials (SNM) by using large networks of small, inexpensive, and robust gamma detectors. These detectors will be deployed where consistent surveillance would be difficult by any other means, like remote mountain trails. The proposal describes a novel gamma detector that is extremely robust and inexpensive. The new scintillation material is ...

  10. Door Breaching Ammunition

    SBC: POLYSHOK, INC.            Topic: SOCOM05002

    Using Polyshok patented technology, Polyshok, Inc. will complete the development of the high performance door breaching round started in Phase I and make it production ready. In addition the manufacturing technology will be developed to produce this 12 gauge ammunition on commercial high speed loading equipment. All M1030 US Army 12 gauge Door Breaching performance requirements will be met as par ...
