  1. Ultra-High Temporal Resolution Laser Radar (LADAR) Receiver

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A07080

    Voxtel will develop a prototype ultra-high temporal resolution flash LADAR receiver suitable for unmanned ground vehicle (UGV) or unmanned air vehicle (UAV) applications, based upon its low-excess-noise, multi-stage avalanche photodiode (APD) technology. During the Phase I program, 5-stage InGaAs APDs where shown to have a multiplication noise characterized by k=0.02 at a gain of M=20 (20× lower ...

  2. Tools for Rapid Automated Development of Expert Models (TRADEM)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: A12026

    Intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) are complex adaptive learning systems that simulate one-on-one tutoring. Research shows they improve learning and reduce time to mastery. Unfortunately, they are also expensive and time-consuming to produce. Existing IT authoring tools eliminate low level programming but require that domain models, expert models and content be created manually. In Phase I of t ...

  3. ASP Motion Base for Stabilized Mounts

    SBC: FLEX FORCE ENTERPRISES LLC            Topic: A12079

    The flexFORCE engineering team has completed assessment of the critical technical factors required for successful ASP deployment (weight, pointing accuracy, control response, actuation power required, failure modes and effects, scalability, and manufacturability). The team has evaluated the ASP operational environment and requirements, developed a preliminary system design, and executed both dyna ...

  4. DYNAMICALLY PROGRAMMABLE AND ADAPTIVE MULTI-BAND COMPRESSIVE IMAGING SYSTEM

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A11aT007

    Bridger Photonics, Inc. and the University of Arizona have successfully demonstrated a Phase I dynamically programmable multi-band compressive imaging system. The team demonstrated three key technical concepts that prove the feasibility of this powerful technology: 1. Advanced algorithms were used to develop compressive measurement basis sets for imaging and target classification. The algorithms ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. High Efficiency Up conversion Single-Photon-Detector for 1550 nm Signal

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase II SBIR effort will two low noise single photon detectors using MgO doped LiNbO3 (LN) periodically poled waveguides and a 980nm (or similar appropriate wavelength) pump to up convert 1550nm photons to 600nm to allow for detection by photomultiplier tube (PMT). The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher ...

  8. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. Bridger Photonics Inc. proposes to develop a dual-mode laser system capable of performing laser radar imaging as well as high speed free-spa ...

  9. 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 ...

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

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: A08103

    Mid-infrared (MWIR, wavelength ~10 micron) imaging has significant importance in military surveillance and target recognition, since human body radiation peaks in MWIR. The GaSb/InAs type-II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) MWIR detector has been under intensive investigation recently. While much progress has been made to enhance wavelength coverage, one of the few remaining issues has been its r ...
