  1. High Speed Polarization Modulation of Microcavity Lasers for Laser Radar (LADAR) Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: ST092003

    A need exists for polarization interrogating and discriminating Ladar systems to detect and discriminate defilade targets. In the proposed effort, Aerius, and our partner at the University of Illinois, will apply photonic crystal technology to extend Aerius’ high power, high wall plug efficiency, Vertical-Cavity Surface-Emitting Laser (VCSEL) results to develop a stable polarization switched VC ...

  2. Polarization switching VCSEL (P-VCSEL)

    SBC: ZIVA CORPORATION            Topic: ST092003

    Ziva Corporation in collaboration with UCSB will assess the feasibility of developing a directly modulated polarization switching laser based on the Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) geometry with a 3dB frequency of at least 10 GHz. This will be a major breakthrough in the ability to cost effectively fabricate directly modulated lasers (even in 2-D arrays) with polarization diversity ...

  3. New Thruster for Proliferated Satellites Has More Force and Longer Life

    SBC: The Granville Group Inc.            Topic: ST092005

    Granville has designed a new satellite/spacecraft propulsion engine, GREP, delivering over 100.mN/1.0 kW of force from strong electromagnetic energy… more force magnitude and efficiency than existing propellant limited ion thrusters. And, because it uses renewable power from on-board solar/electric panels, GREP offers extended propulsion maneuver life, up to 15 years or more, substantially lon ...

  4. 3D Model Construction from a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    The innovative integration of two emerging technologies, computer vision systems and Un-manned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's), can dramatically improve the capabilities of the UAV for real-world urban missions. Computer vision is being developed for robotic planetary exploration. UAV's are being developed for low-altitude military reconnaissance and surveillance in urban settings. The application of c ...

  5. Improved electrodes for low-loss radio frequency devices

    SBC: AGILE RF, INC.            Topic: A09AT015

    Understanding and minimizing RF loss in tunable components is key to the successful integration of this technology in high performance wireless devices. Filter applications, in particular, fundamentally require extremely low loss to operate efficiently. Agile’s high-frequency tunable filter development efforts using BST have found that loss due to surface or series resistance (Rs) is a significa ...

  6. Robotic System for Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery

    SBC: AMERICAN GNC CORPORATION            Topic: A09AT029

    The objective of this project is to implement and demonstrate a new robotic system enabling Natural Orifice Transluminal Endoscopic Surgery (NOTES) that improves surgical care of warfighters and their families. The proposed NOTES system will be used for many military and civilian surgery needs, especially on natural orifice diagnosis and treatment of acute appendicitis at a role 2 facility with re ...

  7. Sterilization and Decontamination of Surfaces Contaminated

    SBC: APPLIED PULSED POWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Decontamination of military personnel, equipment and facilities that have been exposed to deadly biological and / or chemical warfare agents is of critical concern to U.S. Armed Forces. Conventional technologies used for decontamination and sterilization suffer from drawbacks that include toxic effluents, radiation hazards to personnel, and very long time scales for the decontamination process pr ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. Stress Induced Micro/Nano Caloricparticle For Improved Thermoacoustic Refrigeration

    SBC: FORTIS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: ST041001

    Traditional refrigeration systems based on the compression and expansion of refrigerant gases are complicated and limited to large dimensions. The pumps and compressors required makes it difficult if no impossible to scale down the system to miniature sizes that would be portable. Thermoacoustic based refrigeration systems promises to provide solid state refrigeration with no moving components, ...

  10. 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 ...
