  1. Passive Collision Detection for UAV Sense and Avoid Systems

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: ST081005

    Currently, Unmanned Aircraft Systems face limitations on their utilization in civil airspace because they do not have the capability to sense and avoid (SAA) other air traffic. Ability to detect collisions with low False Alarm and False Negative Rates are crucial for SAA. In Phase I, UtopiaCompression in collaboration with the University of California, Los Angeles successfully developed methods to ...

  3. Femtosecond UV Laser Pulse Expander

    SBC: Radiabeam Technologies, LLC            Topic: SB082004

    In many applications, such as the remote identification of explosives and other hazardous compounds, UV pulses of variable length are required. Many of the chemical processes of interest to the defense sector occur on ~100s of ps timescales and demand a high degree of control over the peak laser power. On the other hand there are a number of laser sources capable of producing high intensity, broad ...
