  1. High Performance Electric-Field Sensor Based on Enhanced Electro-Optic Polymer Refilled Slot Photonic Crystal Waveguides

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT01

    ABSTRACT: This Phase II STTR research proposal aims to demonstrate an antenna coupled phase modulator based on an Electro-optic (EO) polymer refilled slot photonic crystal waveguide (PCW) for operation in the Q band. The goal is to detect field strengths of 100uW/m^2 in an Intensity Modulation Direct Detection (IMDD) scheme using subwavelength antennas. The EO polymer is the SEO125 provided by Dr ...

  2. Real Time 3-D Modeling and Immersive Visualization for Enhanced Soldier Situation Awareness

    SBC: Carnegie Robotics LLC            Topic: A12aT003

    We propose a rapid mapping and 3-D visualization system especially suited for inside buildings, tunnels, urban canyons, and other environments where GPS may be poor or not available. The system--which was fully demonstrated in our Phase I effort-- includes mobile Sensor Nodes that wirelessly supply compressed 3D range data and color imagery to a central Fusion Node. The Fusion Node runs 3D recon ...

  5. Compressive Sampling Applied to Millimeter-wave Single Detector Imagers

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: A14AT003

    Millimeter and terahertz wave imaging can image objects behind or within other objects. However, current equipment that does this quickly is expensive, and affordable equipment is prohibitively slow. Researchers at Missouri S & T have successfully developed and demonstrated several innovative millimeter wave imaging systems capable of real-time, high-resolution imaging at frequencies up to 150 G ...

  8. Secure Efficient Cross-domain Protocols

    SBC: INFOBEYOND TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF13AT08

    ABSTRACT: Coordinating and sharing information across multi-level security (MLS) networks are of great interest in many military applications. However, it is very challenging to accomplish those goals due to the heterogeneous security classifications of different network domains. The recent proposed cross-domain solutions (CDS) provide initial steps to make such applications possible. However, th ...
