  1. "Night Glow"Short Wave Infrared LED (NSLED) Image Projector Development

    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF131098

    ABSTRACT: This project aims to develop a Short Wave Infrared band image projector to provide real time detector stimulation with high dynamic range. Our emitter technology is based on GaInAsSb quaternary semiconductor LED arrays hybridized to CMOS read-in integrated circuits. This project leverages read-in circuit design and control electronics that were developed under SLEDS - a longer wavelengt ...

  2. A New Standard for Power-Aware Programming

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: A13029

    New enhancements to mobile computers including smaller sensors, displays and powerful processors have made them much more attractive for the battlefield, not only as wearable systems for soldiers, but also unattended ground sensors a warfighter can leave behind for situational awareness. Unfortunately, while the technologies for hands-free interfacing have improved greatly, the challenge of limiti ...

  3. A novel process to produce air-stable core-shell nanoparticles for energetic applications

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: AF131103

    ABSTRACT: It has been a challenge to realize the benefits of energetic metal nanoparticles due to the severe oxidation that occurs on the particle surface, which leads to significantly diminished performance during combustion. We propose to improve the energetic properties and air-stability of aluminum nanoparticles by encapsulating them with a relatively noble metal that can undergo an exothermi ...

  6. BROAD RANGE RADIATION DETECTOR BASED ON SPECTRUM SHIFTS OF OPTO-MECHANICAL MICROCAVITY

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: A123108

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed at the development of the ultra-sensitive detector for the far infrared (FIR) and terahertz (THz) bands of electromagnetic radiation. The device is inherently optical, operates at room temperature and of submillimeter size. The proposed technology is based on coupling the radiation to be measured to the mechanical degree of freedom of an optical microcavity and ...

  7. Channel and Interference adaptive SATCOM Digital beam-former

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: AF131048

    ABSTRACT: As the size, cost, and power consumption of digital signal processing platforms continue to drop and their performance improves, incorporating digital beam-former (DBF) designs into future SATCOM satellite payloads has become an increasingly attractive option. The advantages offered by digital beam-forming stem from the ability to create composite antenna patterns that vary with both s ...

  8. Chromate-free self-healing coating (SHC) system for repaired and restored aluminum alloy surfaces

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: AF131126

    ABSTRACT: We propose to demonstrate the benefits of a self-healing coating (SHC) system (comprised of MIL-PRF-85285 compliant self-healing top coat; MIL-PRF-23377 Class N primer; chromate-free pretreatment) on repaired and restored aluminum. Innovations are proposed for a self-healing polyurethane-based top coat that satisfies the functional performance requirements for the present application. T ...

  9. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  10. 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 ...
