  1. Robust Phase Modulators and Polarization Controllers for High Power Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Fontus Applied Technologies            Topic: MDA14017

    Both polarization controllers and phase modulators are widely used in telecommunications and other applications. Presently, most polarization controllers and phase modulators cannot handle high optical power up to 10 W/channel. In this SBIR program, researchers of Fontus Applied Technologies propose an innovative polarization controller and a phase modulator using our advanced electro-optic tech ...

  2. Disruptive Improvements in Single-Photon Geiger-mode Avalanche Photodiode (GmAPD) Focal Plane Arrays (FPAs) and Cameras

    SBC: Princeton Lightwave, Inc.            Topic: MDA13024

    For this Phase II SBIR, Princeton Lightwave Inc. (PLI) is proposing to demonstrate disruptive single photon counting performance characteristics of Geiger-mode avalanche photodiode (GmAPD) cameras by making dramatic improvements to existing commercial short wave infrared GmAPD focal plane arrays. These cameras provide high-performance three-dimensional imaging capability for intelligence, surveil ...

  3. Visible and Near Infrared (VNIR) Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) Imager

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: MDA13024

    During Phase II, we will prototype the PCIC imager; characterize its dark count rate, quantum efficiency, gain, crosstalk, bandwidth, jitter, etc., as a function of the bias voltages and temperatures; perform environmental testing including operating temperature, vibration and thermal testing; compare between design specifications, model, simulation, and analysis and measured PCIC performance; del ...

  4. Multi-Phenomenology Intercept Reconstruction

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA14009

    Debris mitigation for both RF and EO/IR sensors is necessary for improving the BMDS against raid scenarios. The time and length scales important to debris mitigation span a large range, and are dependent upon engagement conditions. To address the problem of debris mitigation, accurate debris fields must be modeled for all potential engagement conditions, that is validated to the best sources of ...

  5. Probabilistic Representation Of Operational Functions (PROOF)

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA14011

    To evaluate the BMDS from an engineering and statistical perspective, high-run-count simulations (HRCS) must be performed to more completely sample the scenario space. If HRCS can provide statistically significant results that are validated against higher fidelity simulations, HWIL and live fire test, they can be a very powerful tool in engineering studies, performance estimation and trade studie ...

  6. SPEER With Optical Research Data (SWORD)

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA07044

    SciTec has developed a system for post engagement evaluation and reporting (SPEER) that combines a multi-phenomenology, multi-source fusion engine with a human-machine interface (HMI) to correlate messages, system tracks and multi-source data, further exploits this data and displays information to provide situational awareness to include post engagement assessments. SPEER incorporates the remote ...
