  1. Adaptive Waveform Solid-State Coherent LADAR Array Imager

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust sensor capability to meet Air Force objectives. The LADAR operates at an eyesafe solid-state wavelength in order to achieve a compact, rugged design capable of stand-off ranges of 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted with an extremely efficient proc ...

  2. A Dual-Wavelength Airborne Radar for Remote Detection of Icing Conditions

    SBC: Stratton Park Engineering Co., Inc.            Topic: N/A

    General aviation and commuter aircraft generally do not have adequate deicing equipment to operate safely in all types of icing conditions. Since icing forecasts are not yet sufficiently reliable for pilots to avoid icing conditions, an airborne system that remotely detects icing conditions ahead of the aircraft could prevent serious accidents. The National Oceanic and Atrmospheric Administratio ...

  3. Advanced Epitaxial Growth of Extended-Performance Semiconductor Lasers

    SBC: PICOLIGHT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I Small Business Innovation Research proposal describes a means to develop a new epitaxial growth technique which as far-reaching use for increasing semiconductor laser performances in terms of power, temperature stability, and emission wavelength. The technique is most beneficial to semiconductors lasers, both edge-emitters and vertical-cavity surface emitting lasers (VCSELs), but it a ...

  4. Advanced Optoelectronic Pulse-Coupled Pattern Recognition Systems

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To develop faster and larger pulse-coupled neural networks (PCNN) for image processing, Bosonics will design and simulate a 64 by 64 neuron chip with optical inputs and outputs. PCNN have been shown to be effective at fast analog pre-processing of detector data, image transforms, and automatic target recognition. In Phase I Bosonics will 1) define the image processing application specifications ...

  5. A feature extraction and classification toolbox for remote sensing data analysis

    SBC: VEXCEL CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Vexcel Corporation, working with Fast Mathematical Algorithms and Hardware, Inc., proposes to design and develop an adapted waveform analysis software toolbox for remote sensing data analysis. While many toolkits exist for performing exploratory wavelet analysis, none currently implement the new classification algorithms which have been developed in the last two years, and none are specialized ...

  6. A High-Speed, Solid-State Camera for Stereo Photogrammetry

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Ultrafast imaging is an important need for the development, control and evaluation of modern air-deliverable weapons systems. Current high-speed cameras are based upon rotating prism/mirror assemblies which require a time delay for start-up and synchronization. Because of the mechanical inertia involved, the camera must trigger the experiment (rather than the other way around), and only fixed in ...

  7. AlGaAsSb/InGaAsSb on GaSb, Infrared, Separate Absorption and Multiplication, Avalanche Photodiodes

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    AstroPower proposes to develop high performance, room temperature, mass-producible, low-cost infrared detectors using liquid-phase heteroepitaxy of lattice-matched InGaAsSb and AlGaAsSb on GaSb substrates. The structure of these detectors will be a Separate Absorption and Multiplication Avalanche Photodiode (SAM-APD). This structure has proven to be an effective means of producing large gain in ...

  8. A Low Cost, High-Performance Multi-Spectral Imager

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Multispectral imaging has become a valuable tool in tactical imaging scenarios due to the ability to expose camouflage, identify airborne toxins and fuel plumes, and the ability to provide night vision through the use of infrared imaging. Micro bolometer arrays work well in these situation by creating a single sensor which is sensitibe from the visible to long wave IR imaging regions. The microb ...

  10. Analog FLC-VLSI Spatial Light Modulators for Scintillation Control in Imaging and Laser Propagation

    SBC: Displaytech Incorporated            Topic: N/A

    Important emerging technologies such as adaptive optics (e.g., scintillation control), optical signal processing, and miniature displays require spatial light modulators (SLMs) which can control the amplitude or phase of optical wave fronts. In most cases suitable SLMs are not yet available. New SLM technologies and manufacturing processes must be developed in order to enable the economic and pe ...
