  1. Compact Raman Fiber Optic Probe with Inline Spectral Filtering

    SBC: Nikira Labs Inc.            Topic: None

    In this Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) effort, Nikira Labs Inc. proposes to develop a compact Raman fiber optic probe with inline spectral filtering that improves fiber-coupled Raman measurements by filtering out Raman scattering from the excitation fiber and elastically scattered laser light from the collection fibers. The technology will enable compact fiber probes for Raman studies i ...

  2. Holistic Interoperable Directional Data Enhancement Network

    SBC: Fuse Integration, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT003

    Currently fielded multi-beam CDL systems have been developed in an ad-hoc manner consisting of a collection of poorly integrated off the shelf technologies where controllers, radios, routers, firewalls, encryptors, and antennas are bolted together to reduce time to field.Proprietary APIs, electrical interfaces, and hardware interfaces impede the success of the approach and result in a sub-optimal ...

  5. Alternative Approach to Contact Type Analogue Data Slipring

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141231

    ABSTRACT: Contact type slip rings are frequently the limiting factors in a test and measurement system due to its poor reliability and signal quality issues. A non-contact solution is preferred in many mission critical systems. SA Photonics has developed RODS (Rotational Optical Data System), a fiber optic based non-contact solution that promises higher reliability, better signal integrity, improv ...
