  1. Optical Device for Sorting Particles by Size

    SBC: En'urga Inc.            Topic: NA

    This Phase II SBIR project will continue the development of an optical sorter that will be used to estimate drop sizes in sprays. The optical sorter will determine the size of drops in the 0.1 to 10 microns range. Drops in this size range are prevalent in the automobile industry, where the fuel injection pressures have increased tremendously over the past two decades. These newer injectors provide ...

  2. Advanced Durability Systems for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle Propulsion

    SBC: IBC Materials & Technologies, LLC            Topic: SOCOM163002

    Group 2-3 UAS engines have low mean time between overhauls (MTBOs), often with as little as 200-400 hours before maintenance must be conducted.This leads to significant maintenance cost and logistics tail for deployed operations.Two-stroke piston and rotary engines for Group 2-3 platforms have common maintenance drivers such as carbon fouling, and wear of cylinders, housings and bearings.Phase I r ...

  3. Generator Power Recapture

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF161008

    The Air Force rebuilds and tests many aircraft and ground-power generators each year, involving many hours of loaded run-time with dissipative load banks. To improve facility energy efficiency and to have a positive environmental impact, a regenerative ac/dc load bank is proposed to push power from generator testing back to the electric grid. The proposed generator power recapture unit (GPRU) will ...

  4. Miniature Low-Light SWIR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171081

    To enable small drones to navigate by natural nighttime skyglow, Voxtel is developing an ultra-low-leakage, 9-m-pitch, 1080p-format InGaAs photodiode array for compact, lightweight low-light (LL) short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) imaging. In a Phase II effort, the detectors cutoff wavelength will be adjusted to maximize its uncooled signal-to-noise ratio under illumination from the night sky, tradi ...

  5. High-gain Low-excess-noise Linear-mode APD for Small-pitch Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171118

    A high-sensitivity, narrow-field-of-view ladar receiver, optimized for long-range target detection and identification will be developed, characterized, and demonstrated.In Phase I avalanche photodetector (APD) and readout integrated circuit (ROIC) components were tested and validated. In Phase II, the pulse amplification, detection, and timing circuitry will be cast as a fine-pitch 1616-format arr ...

  6. NIIRS 9 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) 5-Inch Gimbal

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171119

    Phase I focused on the selection of a camera and associated optics that would deliver the required imagery along with a concept of operation (CONOP) for the system. Though Phase I isnt complete, preliminary results strongly support the use of a small, zoomable full motion video (FMV) camera for target acquisition paired with an 18MP camera and custom 250mm catadioptric lens to capture still images ...

  7. InGaAs Focal-plane Arrays for Coherent Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171129

    Voxtel proposes to develop, characterize, and demonstrate a coherent-ladar optimized readout integrated circuit (ROIC) consisting of 40-micron pixel elements, including circuits designed for snapshot-integration operation as short as 250 ns, formatted in a 32 x 32 array capable of readout speeds of 1 M frames per second. In Phase I, the coherent ladar ROIC architecture was developed and specificat ...

  8. Asynchronous Day/Night NIR-SWIR See-Spot Sensor Development

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15039

    Today, dismounted squad-level units do not have the capability to hand off targets during the day and at night, covertly and rapidly, and between squad members and supporting vehicles. To address this need, a 12.5-um-pixel-pitch passive readout integrated circuit (ROIC) with asynchronous active laser-spot tracking designed for integration with InGaAs photodiode short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) foc ...

  9. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation

    SBC: PC Krause And Associates, Inc.            Topic: N103207

    The movement to more-electric architectures during the past decade in military and commercial airborne systems continues to increase the complexity of designing and specifying the electrical power system in such architectures. In particular, electrical starter/generators (ES/G) on airborne systems have become much more complex in terms of design due to growth in electrical power and energy require ...
