  1. 2K x 2K Dual Band Focal Plane Array Development for Advanced Interceptor IRSTS Applications

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: MDA08T002

    Nova Sensors proposes the development of a new 2K x 2K dual-band readout integrated circuit (ROIC) that will be specifically tailored for use in MDA Infrared Search and Track System (IRSTS) applications. We propose incorporation of on-FPA features that streamline the use of dual-band focal plane array (FPA) data for missile detection, tracking and spectral discrimination applications. In cooperat ...

  3. A Novel Low Cost Fiber Bragg Grating Stabilized Multiwavele

    SBC: FERMIONICS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    A novel fiber Bragg grating stabilized laser array is proposed here. The multi-wavelength source is aimed at low cost dense wavelength division multiplexing (DWDM) applications where the superior properties, i.e., low chirp, low temperature dependence, of the fiber Grating is utilized. The resultant product is a coolerless multi-wavelength laser source that can be modulated with direct current. T ...

  5. Advanced Passive and Active Sensors for Discrimination Seekers

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: MDA07T003

    Effective future ballistic missile defense systems will be forced to discriminate between targets and decoys. To meet this requirement, ballistic missile interceptors must contain sensors which have imaging capability. SA Photonics is proposing a program to develop a pumped laser optical source for LIDAR-RADAR imaging applications specifically targeted for ballistic missile applications. The SA ...
