The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Commercial Solutions for Weather Forecasting

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF182001

    Accurate and timely weather information for situational awareness is critical to the success of Air Force missions.To date, space-borne sensors for weather forecasting primarily include visible, infrared, and microwave instruments.While visible and infrared sensors have reached a high level of maturity and performance, those operating in the microwave region of the electromagnetic spectrum continu ...

  2. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  3. Image Enhancement and Machine Learning for Improving Man-Portable Targeting Systems

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N172102

    Modern DoD applications are benefiting from the proliferation of EO/IR sensor technology. As imagers become cheaper and smaller, they are being more widely deployed for a variety of scenarios. This trend is exemplified by the Navys Future Targeting System (FTS), which will provide laser designation, laser spot imaging, and some target location functions in a single 5.5-pound unit, replacing discre ...

  4. Additive Manufacturing for RF Materials and Antennas

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A18020

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards more integrated platforms that utilize all available space. For radiating systems, this will require exploring innovative design methods, materials and manufacturing approaches to realize cost-effective, customizable and conformal antennas. An attractive solution to this challenge is offered by additive ...

  5. Low-cost Imager for Heavily Degraded Visual Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A18040

    This project aims to develop a low-cost millimeter-wave (mmW) imaging system for ground vehicles, to operate in combination with a long-wave infrared (LWIR) camera. Such a system will mitigate the challenges of driving in degraded visual environments (DVE) including night time, fog, dust, or smoke by providing real-time image of the vehicle surrounding independent from the presence of naturally oc ...

  6. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...

  7. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  9. ATCOM SHARP Box for Real-Time Turbulence Mitigation

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: NASAA402

    When imaging over long distances, atmospheric turbulence between the camera and subject degrades the collected data limiting the effective resolution, regardless of the quality of the optic and sensor used. This reduction in image quality can have serious impacts on the ability to carry out missions by reducing situational awareness and preventing target identification. EM Photonics has been worki ...
