  1. A Universal, Low-Cost Atomic Magnetometer

    SBC: Twinleaf LLC            Topic: N13AT019

    We propose to develop a universal atomic magnetometer magnetometer capable of operation as either a three-axis vector atomic magnetometer or a scalar (total field) atomic magnetometer. We furthermore operate the magnetometer in a regime that is inherently free of sources of drift in the lasers or cell to achieve unprecedented low drift at low frequency. The magnetometer is being developed for volu ...

  2. Subsea Long Haul Optical Transponder

    SBC: David Ross Group Inc, The            Topic: N131060

    The David Ross Group will develop an innovative, miniaturized low-cost undersea transponder for data transmission over long haul underwater cable systems where the signal is generated from an undersea node and integrated with an undersea transmission system while minimizing the use and number of undersea optical amplifiers (repeaters). The David Ross Group will identify how these technical solutio ...

  4. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  6. Text Analytics from Audio

    SBC: LI Creative Technologies Inc.            Topic: OSD12LD6

    We propose to design and implement a system that combines multiple audio transcription and multiple translation tools with natural language processing capabilities, such that information can be automatically extracted from audio files with improved performances. In our approach, speech waveforms of a foreign language are first processed to remove background noise using our noise reduction algorith ...

  9. Gimbal-Free Wavelength-Division-Multiplexing Free Space Optical Communication (WDMFSO) for Ocean Surface Transceivers

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: N122116

    Lasercom, namely, free-space optical (FSO) communication, has many advantages over the traditional RF communication channels widely used in military communications. Some notable advantages of lasercom are no need for licensing for frequency allocation, immunity to radio frequency interference, and low probability of interception and detection. The biggest disadvantage of lasercom, however, is its ...
