  1. Improved Microcalorimeter Detectors for X-ray Chemical Shift Mapping

    SBC: STAR CRYOELECTRONICS LLC            Topic: 9020868TT

    X-ray fluorescence spectroscopy is a widely used and extremely sensitive analytical technique for qualitative and quantitative chemical analysis. Superconducting Transition Edge Sensor (TES) microcalorimeter detectors have now been developed that achieve an energy resolution of 2 eV for 1.5 keV X-rays, which is sufficient to enable the measurement of the small shift of the X-ray line position that ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Antenna design in the Plasma Environment

    SBC: Stellar Science Ltd. Co.            Topic: MDA12010

    Development of the ballistic missile targets is a complex undertaking, particularly since radio-frequency (RF) blackout caused by plasma formation during re-entry complicates antenna designs for Global Positioning System (GPS) and telemetry signals. To minimize the cost of the design/build/test process, proposed designs should be first simulated and refined in a virtual prototyping environment bef ...

  4. 2-D Hyperspectral Imaging for High Speed Target Engagement and Identification

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: MDA12014

    The objective of this proposal is to describe the design and technique behind a novel framing 2-dimensional (2-D) hyperspectral imager system that overcomes the limitations of traditional hyperspectral systems when tracking high speed targets and is capable of placing a 2-dimensional spatial grid on the target with enough pixels for shape-based target detection, while simultaneously and instantane ...

  5. Atmospheric Characterization for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: MDA12017

    MZA partnered with the Air Force Institute of Technology (AFIT) propose the development of an integrated satellite-derived numerical weather prediction (NWP) modeling and optical sensor measurements technique to provide comprehensive atmospheric characterization for modeling of directed energy (DE) weapon performance. We will build on an existing technique for temperature and wind modeling using ...

  6. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingesting the jet exhaust from other aircraft. Under s ...

  9. Free-Space Optical Communications: Light Detection and Ranging Enhanced Data Delivery

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: A12089

    Over the past few years, lidar programs have collected 3-D imagery enabling unprecendented views of the battlefield. Unfortunately, lidar systems collect such large volumes of data that it is not available in real time. This SBIR Phase I proposal suggests a research program to design low-SWaP free-space optical communication (FSOC) system to download lidar data to a ground station at high data rat ...

  10. Directed Energy Wind Tunnel Test Methodology

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: MZA partnered with the University of Notre Dame proposes to implement a series of mechanical and optical sensor measurements in a wind tunnel test section to isolate aero-optical disturbances from contaminating tunnel disturbances. We will develop a design for the necessary sensors and the number/location of these sensors on the tunnel observation windows. Particular attention will be ...
