  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. Development of a Long Term pH and pCO2 Lagrangian Drifter

    SBC: SUNBURST SENSORS, LLC            Topic: 831C

    Quantifying oceanic CO2 uptake and ocean acidification and understanding their impact on global climate and ocean ecology are key goals of NOAA’s climate change research programs. NOAA’s request for Development of a long-term Lagrangian pH and pCO2 drifter (SBIR Subtopic 8.3.1C) aims to address these goals by developing technology that measures both pCO2 and pH that can be widely deployed in t ...

  3. Nano-scale Coatings for the Protection of Electronics and Sensitive Equipment in Marine Environments

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: SOCOM13001

    We propose to advance the state-of-the-art of durable superhydrophobic coatings for application on printed circuit boards (PCBs) found on underwater vehicles exposed to hydrostatic pressures up to ~10 atm, corresponding to depths of ~100 meters in fresh or salt water, through a combination of NEI"s in-house coating materials development and evaluations of existing nanostructured water-repellent co ...

  4. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM13004

    In response to the SOCOM 13-004 Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier solicitation, MaXentric proposes the GreenAmp-lite system. The GreenAmp- & #8208;lite combines MaXentric"s envelope tracking technology with a power amplifier MMIC in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation provided by envelope t ...

  5. Nano-scale Coatings for the Protection of Electronics and Sensitive Equipment in Marine Environments

    SBC: UTILITY DEVELOPMENT CORP            Topic: SOCOM13001

    The objective will be to develop nano-scale coatings for protection of electronics and other sensitive items from seawater and fresh water. A thorough analysis of various commercial and academic superhydrophobic nanoscale coatings will be conducted for protection of electronics from salt fog, seawater and fresh water. Coatings will be procured from the commercial marketplace, internally from UDC ...

  6. Low Noise, InGaAs Dual Photodiodes for Precise Timing

    SBC: DISCOVERY SEMICONDUCTORS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Conversion of highly stable optical clocks into electrical clocks through photodetection introduces excess phase noise and degrades the frequency stability by two to three orders of magnitude.

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

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Voxtel proposes to develop fiber-coupled near-infrared avalanche photodiode (APD) receivers with photon detection efficiency (PDE) and dark count rate (DCR) with more than two orders of magnitude faster maximum count rate (MCR) than Geiger-mode APDs, which are constrained by a fundamental tradeoff between DCR and MCR: if the APD is cooled to reduce DCR, then its dead time must increase to avoid af ...

  8. Deep Submergence Rated Flexible Hoses and Piping System Connectors

    SBC: MEI-CHARLTON, INC.            Topic: SOCOM08002

    The objective of this proposal is to demonstrate the feasibility of developing flex hoses for hydraulic and other piping system interfaces that can withstand high pressure environments, hydrodynamic, and other forces unique to deep submergence system operating environments. This hose and connecter system coined FlexiHOSE© proposed by MEI-Charlton, Inc. (MEIC) will meet the need of operating under ...

  9. High Efficiency Single Photon Up-Conversion in Waveguides and Pump Wavelength Longer than the Signal Wavelength

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase 1 SBIR effort will demonstrate the feasibility of low noise single photon up conversion using KTiOPO4 (KTP) or LiNbO3 (LN) or Stoichiometric LiTaO3 (SLT) periodically poled waveguides and an 1800nm pump for a high efficiency single photon detector. The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher efficiency s ...
