  4. Highly Parallel LIDAR-based Automated Target Recognition

    SBC: PHYSICAL OPTICS CORPORATION            Topic: AF161139

    To address the Air Force need for an automated target recognition (ATR) capability that uses Light Detection and Ranging (LIDAR), Physical Optics Corporation (POC) proposes to advance the development of the Highly Parallel LIDAR-based Automated Target Recognition (PLATR) system, which was proven feasible in Phase I. PLATR is based on an innovative combination of target isolation, target pose estim ...

  5. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  6. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...

  8. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  9. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...

  10. Blended Reality Solution for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as Pararescuem ...
