  1. Detectors with Integrated Filters for Solar VUV Observations

    SBC: International Radiation Detectors, Inc.            Topic: 816

    Fabrication of stable, nearly 100% internal carrier collection efficiency silicon photodiodes (AXUV diodes) for 1 nm to 600 nm photons was successfully demonstrated by us several years ago. Owing to their excellent characteristics, these devices are being used by NIST as transfer standards in 5 nm to 250 nm range and aboard SOHO, SNOE and TIMED instruments for the EUV solar spectrum studies. Alt ...

  2. An Innovative Raster-Mirror Optical Detection System for CCD Camera Bistatic Lidar

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: 812

    An innovative optical system with 500X higher ¿tendu and spatial resolution will be designed for CCD-based bistatic lidar. A 100¿ vertical field of view is required to image the laser beam from the ground through the boundary layer, but only a few degrees are required in the horizontal direction. The proposed design is based on dividing the vertical field of view into N sectors, using 1D rasteri ...

  3. An Autonomous Gas Chromatograph for Measurement of Greenhouse Gases in Airborne Applications

    SBC: Sonoma Technology, Inc.            Topic: 815

    An automated, high precision, lightweight gas chromatograph, capable of measuring hydrogen (H2), methane (CH4), carbon monoxide (CO) and carbon dioxide (CO2) with a fast duty cycle (1 sample per two minutes) will be designed and built. The detector used for the chromatograph will be an electron capture detector with sensitivity enhanced by addition of nitrous oxide (N2O) reagent gas. The instrum ...

  6. Visible/UV Image Projector for Sensor Testing

    SBC: ACUMEN CONSULTING            Topic: AF04165

    Projecting high radiance, broadband scenes in the spectral range from 0.2-14 mm is desired to simulate operating environmental scenarios for testing ultraviolet , visible and infrared sensors in a hardware-in-the-loop environment. The ideal solution will provide high radiance levels over the entire spectral range along with the capability for both broad and narrowband emission, as is appropriate ...

  7. Dynamically Sensing and Adapting Wireless Network

    SBC: ADAPTRUM, INC.            Topic: AF04105

    Recent spectrum study shows that while the available spectrum becomes increasing scarce, the assigned spectrum is significantly underutilized. In this project, we propose an integrated effort to develop a new radio technology capable of dynamically sensing and locating the unused spectrum and communicating using the unused spectrum in a way that causes no harmful interference to the designated us ...

  8. Multi-channel, Bi-directional, User-programmable, Radiation-hardened, High-speed Voltage Level Converter

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: AF04042

    Existing and future complex command and control systems used in avionics and satellite electronics utilize radiation tolerant (RT) components from a number of logic families with different data rates and I/O interfaces. The resulting incompatibility of blocks and subsystems increases with the migration of the modern electronics to lower power supplies in attempts to reduce its overall power consum ...
