  1. 1 Micrometer Integrated Transmitter for Balanced Radio-Frequency-Over-Fiber Photonic Links

    SBC: N.P. PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N20BT030

    NP Photonics proposes to design and develop a compact and integrated radio frequency (RF) -to-optical transmitter at 1060 nm for balanced RF-over fiber photonic links by taking advantage of our mature single-frequency laser technology, multicore fiber fabrication technology, and substantial heterogeneous packaging experience and capability in fiber laser products. In this Phase I program, we will ...

  3. Electromagnetic Interference (EMI) Resilient, Low Noise Figure, Wide Dynamic Range of Radio Frequency to Photonic (RF Photonic) Link

    SBC: APPLIED NANOFEMTO TECHNOLOGIES LLC            Topic: N20AT012

    EMI resilient RF Photonic Links are critical for connecting remote antennas in the next generation Navy electronics warfare (EW) architecture. Current commercially available RF/photonic link technologies have deficiencies in dynamic range, noise figure, and SWaP performance. For a solution, this STTR project aims to develop a novel wide dynamic range, low noise RF photonic link, where the key comp ...

  4. Injection Locked "Cooker" Magnetron

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N20AT015

    The Navy desires a compact and highly efficient S-band magnetron source with stabilized output capable of modulation over a narrow bandwidth. In this Phase I STTR proposal, Physical Sciences Inc (PSI) outlines the development of an injection locked “cooker” magnetron which can be used for frequency shift keying (FSK) or phase shift keying (PSK) in a portable high power transmission device. In ...

  5. Fully Automated Quantum Cascade Laser Design Aided by Machine Learning

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: N20AT003

    Pendar Technologies proposes to develop a QCL simulation tools that leverage machine learning to dramatically improve the speed of QCL device design. The innovative QCL design suite proposed will benefit from recent advances made by Pendar in bandstructure engineering, laser cavity design and thermal management at the chip and the package level.

  6. Quantum Emulation Co-processor Circuit Card

    SBC: White River Technologies Inc.            Topic: N20AT016

    Analog computation has an old history going back to mechanical differential analyzers for solving Ordinary Differential Equations.  These equations can be used model Hilbert space that is used in Quantum Computing.  It was realized that the computational operation called quantum computing does not need quantum systems by Paul Benioff in 1980; however, the analog approaches to solving Hilbert spa ...

  7. SONAR

    SBC: Systems & Technology Research LLC            Topic: N20AT017

    Social networks engender implicit trust of knowing the person behind the information, so when posts are presented in our social media timelines, they have the potential to persuade us and change our opinions. For other users, such as intelligence analysts, while information shared on social networks is unlikely to take the place of vetted intelligence, the presence of bots can make it difficult to ...

  8. Intelligent Additive Manufacturing- Metals

    SBC: Triton Systems, Inc.            Topic: N20AT018

    Although metal AM technologies have continued to progress, there are still many different challenging factors to a build that impact part quality and the amount of time it takes to successfully process a first-run component without defects. Triton Systems proposes to develop a machine learning algorithm that adjusts print parameters during the build in reaction to in-situ sensor data in order to ...

  9. Ambient Quantum Processor compatible with an All-photonic Repeater Architecture

    SBC: CATALYTE, LLC            Topic: N20AT005

    The significance of the problem is to deploy combined quantum communication-and-processing near to Navy applications.   Our approach, when successful, would enable small, ambient operating QPUs to be connected at a distance by quantum-secure communication.  Unlike bulky optical components and in-contrast to cryogenic qubits, our system, using in situ generated photons, offers a practical s ...

  10. High Efficiency Ceramic Propeller for Small UAS

    SBC: HYDRONALIX, INC.            Topic: N20AT006

    The purpose of this program is to develop “CerFoil”, a radically new lightweight ceramic composite propeller for use in small unmanned air systems (SUAS). The team consists of Hydronalix, Inc. and the Oklahoma State University Next Generation Materials Laboratory who will design, fabricate, and test a new Scimitar type propeller design to radically increase aerodynamic efficiency through imple ...
