  1. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...

  2. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  3. Flexible LED Lighting

    SBC: INNOSYS, INC.            Topic: N181002

    The Marine Corps has used light emitting diode (LED) lighting systems in soft-wall and rigid-wall shelters. Unfortunately, the current LED lighting has not provided the energy efficiencies and cost savings originally desired. InnoSys proposes to develop new lighting that are based on printed quantum dots (QD) + LED on commercially available flexible substrates for use in lighting systems in soft-w ...

  6. Adaptable SoS Environment for M&S Tools

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF181063

    Military sensor models comprise software codes that represent specific sensor technologies, such as infrared, radar, and LiDAR, so that sensor systems can be designed and integrated into Air Force platforms.Operating these codes requires system designers to expend considerable effort in translating the inputs and outputs of the various codes so that they interface properly. Integrating multiple se ...

  7. Development of a Turbocharger for Small Aviation Diesel Engines

    SBC: BAKER ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: A18019

    Baker Engineering Inc. (BEI) proposes researching and developing a reliable sequential turbocharger system for a typical 2.0l class aviation compression-ignition engine with a maximum power of 180hp at sea level which is capable of providing 108hp at an altitude of 30,000-ft. With emphasis on durability and performance at altitude, research will be conducted on turbocharger construction, bearing s ...

  8. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  9. SMALL CALIBER MUNITIONS MANEUVERING USING PIEZO-ACTUATED COMPLIANT MECHANISMS

    SBC: Flexsys, Inc.            Topic: A18028

    Controlled guidance of small-caliber gun-fired munitions is currently limited by the severity of inertial loads from the launch event, which can be 60,000g in small-caliber munitions. There is a need for more robust mechanical guidance-control systems in small-caliber munitions that can provide substantial control authority while being able to survive extreme launch loads.Compliant mechanisms, act ...

  10. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...
