  1. Uncooled, 10-KHz LWIR FPA using Interferometry

    SBC: NOVASPECTRA INC.            Topic: ST051005

    We propose to develop an uncooled focal plane array (FPA) with a frame rate of at least 10 KHz and a high sensitivity in the long wave infrared (LWIR, 8-12 micron) for tracking fast-moving targets or imaging fast events. It consists of 256x256 micro interferometers as sensing elements, each of which transduces the incident LWIR into an interference beam of near IR that is detected by an ordinary h ...

  2. Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC)

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: ST051009

    A persistent threat to US forces deployed in hostile territories is lack of knowledge of the engagement environment to avoid ambush. US forces constitute prime targets for hostile elements evidenced from the organized attacks and ambushes on US troops in Iraq and Afghanistan. Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC) would constitute a small, light, wireless s ...

  3. High Current Photodetector

    SBC: ARCHCOM TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: ST051007

    For many communication applications, the demand for more bandwidth is a never ending problem. Military system applications often can exceed commercial demands by an order of magnitude or more as SIGINT and IMINT data collection and transmission are keys to our National Security. Optical delivery of RF signals is an increasingly important topic for applications including RF antenna remoting, sign ...

  4. High Speed Room Temperature IR Camera Based on Plasmon Physics

    SBC: Tanner Research, Inc.            Topic: ST051005

    Several critical DoD missions require reliable, rapid, and non-cryogenically cooled long wave IR cameras. This camera, in turn, can be developed only with a new photodiode architecture wherein detector dark current is reduced by at least 3 orders of magnitude. In this proposal, Tanner Research and Stanford University are proposing a plasmon lens & resonant antenna device to efficiently focus bro ...

  5. Efficient, Collaborative Image Processing and Flow Assingnment with Filed of Viw Coverage in Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnec

    SBC: TECHFINITY, INC.            Topic: ST051009

    The Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC) concept is a set of small, ballistically distributed optical imaging sensors that form an ad hoc wireless sensor network (WSN) that provides real time information to a tactical decision maker. ELASTIC provides the infrastructure and technologies to enable quick deployment, sensing, processing, and communication. Th ...

  6. A Portable Efficient Phrase Translation System

    SBC: Voice Signal            Topic: ST051001

    This proposal combines two technologies to create an efficient, effective translation device. We propose coupling commercially available cell phone basic technology from Voice Signal with approximate search from the International Computer Science Institute through an API on a portable device to demonstrate multi-lingual approximate phrase searching and translation on COTS devices.

  7. Expendable Local Area Sensors in a Tactically Interconnected Cluster (ELASTIC)

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: ST051009

    Providing situational awareness to ground-based personnel in tactical scenarios is a challenging problem. This proposal provides a plan for developing a ballistically deployed wireless imaging sensor with networking capabilities. Our solution addresses all aspects of the problem from the imaging system itself to deployment strategies. For this effort, we will incorporate hardware and software as w ...

  8. Low Loss Optic Fiber Sparse Tapped Delay Module

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: ST051006

    Leveraging Agiltron's recent breakthrough in low loss/low cost solid-sate fiberoptic digital delay lines and variable splitter, we propose to develop a new type of affordable reconfigurable sparse delay line module. The proposed approach overcomes the deficiencies in limited delay time and excessive loss associated with electronic sparse delay line modules and provides sufficiently long delays an ...
