  1. Extended-SWIR Targeting Sensor

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF112096

    ABSTRACT:Current military systems laser rangefinding and designation systems require multiple detectors, which make such systems large, heavy, and power hungry, which limits application to larger, high-value platforms. The proposed Phase II program addresses the need for a single, compact high-resolution SWIR imager with see-spot/time-spot capabilities. In the Phase II program, Voxtel will develop ...

  2. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Herein, PSI proposes to leverage extensive development in the area of optically sampled passive millimeter-wave imaging to develop dual mode active/passive imagers that provide both the intuitive, real-time imagery of a passive imager and the ranging capabilities of an active sensor. To accomplish this task, an optically sampled millimeter-wave receive array is sampled via optical pulsed laser gat ...

  3. High-Resolution Asynchronous Day/Night Timespot NIR-SWIR Imager Development

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15039

    A compact, low-power near/shortwave infrared sensor capable of temporally and spatially resolving battlefield lasers asynchronously under day and night conditions will be developed. The approach is based on an existing active-passive focal plane array (FPA), which readily lends itself to this application. In Phase I, after working with U.S. Army stakeholders to refine the requirements and the cont ...

  4. Real-Time Millimeter-Wave Holography for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  5. A 3D Printed Head Phantom for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation Current Model Validation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF151026

    ABSTRACT:Cognitive skills/capabilities are important for the military personnel to fulfill tasks and to ensure mission efficiency and success. In the past decade, there are abundant researches suggesting that non-invasive brain stimulation via transcranial direct current stimulation (tDCS) holds great promise to enhance a soldier's cognitive performances. Although models to predict the tDCS curren ...

  6. Prattle: Deception and Anti-Reconnaissance via CyberChaff

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: AF151029

    ABSTRACT:Computer network defense tools are plagued with an excessive amount of information, frequently in the form of false positives. Rather than attempt to train automated tools to detect attack events more reliably, we propose to build upon existing 'honey-net' technologies to interfere with the reconnaissance phases of an adversary's attack. We will build upon our existing CyberChaff (TM) tec ...

  7. Next-Generation Semi-Active Laser (SAL) and Miniature Designator

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF151112

    ABSTRACT:A novel next-generation (Next Gen) semi-active laser (SAL) seeker will be developed, which includes a novel gun-hardened miniature eye-safe laser designator, ideal for weapon and UAV mounting. The laser will optionally be configured with a laser positioning and timing (PAT) imager, which can be used to aid target handover and to provide active feedback for beam stabilization. The SAL seek ...

  8. Design and Fabrication of Highly Linear Electro-optic Modulators

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: AF151133

    ABSTRACT:Modulator linearity and efficiency, in addition to bandwidth, are important parameters in characterizing a modulator. In general, improving modulation efficiency is highly desirable since higher modulation efficiency allows lower RF signal to impose equivalent change in the optical beam whereas improved linearity increases the dynamic range available to analog signals conveyed and process ...

  9. Heterogeneous and Gradient Additive Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF151135

    ABSTRACT:A machine to support the research and development of additive manufacturing (AM) multi-material 3D printing technologies will be developed, which will enable the fabrication of 3D objects with heterogeneous compositions, i.e., objects that are composed of two or more materials that differ in their physical and/or chemical properties and are fused together to build up the object. Using exi ...

  10. Narrowband LWIR Filters

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: AF151141

    ABSTRACT:Hyperspectral imaging is a technique used to simultaneously capture spatial and spectral information of an object scene, making it a valuable technique for applications in remote sensing and military battlefield environments. In the case of long wave infrared (LWIR) imaging, a hyperspectral approach offers an opportunity to improve upon the detection capabilities of standard broadband sen ...
