  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. Family of Sub-Sonic Ammunition

    SBC: PCP TACTICAL, LLC            Topic: SOCOM13005

    PCP Ammunition Company will deliver a family of Lightweight Advanced Polymer Sub-Sonic Ammunition. We will do this by adapting our current family of calibers by decreasing the internal volume and shape of the case to match the optimal performance requirements of the cartridges. This will result in a sub-sonic ammunition that is lightweight, clean burning (due to the internal volume and dimension ...

  3. .50 Caliber Light Weight Precision Ammunition

    SBC: PCP TACTICAL, LLC            Topic: SOCOM13006

    PCP Ammunition Company will research the design and development of Lightweight .50 caliber precision ammunition under this SBIR Phase I contract. PCP will concentrate our efforts on several separate criteria in order to improve upon the current .50 caliber round by utilizing PCP"s current lightweight polymer .50 caliber case. First, we will compare the performance of the current round agains ...

  4. Covert Optically-Reporting Threat-Functionalized Nanomaterials

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: DTRA122003

    The Defense Threat Reduction Agency (DTRA) and the U.S. Strategic Command Center for Combating Weapons of Mass Destruction (SCC-WMD) requires transformational materials technology to support the intelligence, surveillance, and reconnaissance (ISR) of personnel and materials associated with weapons of mass destruction (WMD) development, manufacturing, and proliferation. Voxtel, Inc. proposes to fa ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. Man Portable Hand Held Survey Device

    SBC: TAMPA MICROWAVE            Topic: SOCOM09004

    Advanced signal processing techniques based on existing Tampa Microwave signal intelligence receiver hardware, University of South Florida cellular recognition software and Athena Group FPGA products will be utilized to demonstrate a wide bandwidth, fast scan manportable cellular scanning device. BENEFITS: Power consumption, size, stare bandwidth and scan speed for hand held communications interce ...

  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 ...
