  1. InGaAs Focal-plane Arrays for Coherent Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171129

    Voxtel proposes to develop, characterize, and demonstrate a coherent-ladar optimized readout integrated circuit (ROIC) consisting of 40-micron pixel elements, including circuits designed for snapshot-integration operation as short as 250 ns, formatted in a 32 x 32 array capable of readout speeds of 1 M frames per second. In Phase I, the coherent ladar ROIC architecture was developed and specificat ...

  2. Adversarial Detection, Inference & Defensive Response (ADIDRUS)

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: OSD11IA2

    Insider threat poses one of the most problematic cyber challenges facing the warfighter today. This threat to Air Force assets is particularly insidiousas trusted individuals have easy access to sensitive and classified information. Galois, Inc. has developed a multi-layered attack inference engine called ADIDRUS, originally designed to help UAVs fight through cyber attacks. ADIDRUS continuously m ...

  3. Advancing remote sensing approaches to measure water yield, identify ecological forest restoration priorities, and promote watershed investment opportunities in fire prone watersheds in California.

    SBC: Blue Forest Conservation, LLC            Topic: 81

    Forests across the Western U.S. are at a tipping point - overgrowth, a warming climate, drought, and insect infestations have ravaged tens of millions of acres of land, increasing the risk of wildfire and threatening water resources, air quality, communities, homes, and habitat. Forest restoration (the strategic removal of brush and shrubs and the selective thinning of trees to return forests to a ...

  4. Continued Development of Airborne Wind Energy System Ground Station

    SBC: EWINDSOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: 812

    Airborne Wind Energy (AWE) is still a relatively new field but is growing quickly. There are approximately 13 other AWE companies worldwide that appear to have the technical competence and realistic understanding of business such that we view them as realistic competitors. As we have detailed above, eWind differentiates itself from them by focusing on following current FAA (or European) flight rul ...

  5. NIIRS 9 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) 5-Inch Gimbal

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171119

    Phase I focused on the selection of a camera and associated optics that would deliver the required imagery along with a concept of operation (CONOP) for the system. Though Phase I isnt complete, preliminary results strongly support the use of a small, zoomable full motion video (FMV) camera for target acquisition paired with an 18MP camera and custom 250mm catadioptric lens to capture still images ...

  6. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In phase II work, we will collaborate with Prof. Stefan Preble in RIT and continue to develop large scale hybrid integration and packaging techniques for key active photonic components such as lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators and modified uni-traveling (MUTC) photodiodes. We will demonstrate a low V, broadband, small footprint LNOI modulator with hybrid Si/LN or SiN/LN waveguide usin ...

  7. High-gain Low-excess-noise Linear-mode APD for Small-pitch Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171118

    A high-sensitivity, narrow-field-of-view ladar receiver, optimized for long-range target detection and identification will be developed, characterized, and demonstrated.In Phase I avalanche photodetector (APD) and readout integrated circuit (ROIC) components were tested and validated. In Phase II, the pulse amplification, detection, and timing circuitry will be cast as a fine-pitch 1616-format arr ...

  8. Miniature Low-Light SWIR Camera

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171081

    To enable small drones to navigate by natural nighttime skyglow, Voxtel is developing an ultra-low-leakage, 9-m-pitch, 1080p-format InGaAs photodiode array for compact, lightweight low-light (LL) short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) imaging. In a Phase II effort, the detectors cutoff wavelength will be adjusted to maximize its uncooled signal-to-noise ratio under illumination from the night sky, tradi ...

  9. Large-Format Low-false-alarm NIR SPAD Imager

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: SB162010

    To satisfy unmet military needs for multimode day/night digital image sensors, Voxtel is developing a high-dynamic-range visible-sensitive and near-infrared-sensitive single-photon avalanche diode (SPAD) digital imager with efficient photon detection, hi...

  10. A coupled oil extraction/distillation-biochar system to utilize Eastern red cedar in value-added products and provide environmental benefits

    SBC: BLUE EARTH LLC            Topic: 81

    Woody encroachment of grasslands has led to wildfires that have recently destroyed homes and adversely affected rural communities. Eastern red cedar (ERC) is a major culprit in woody expansion and causes habitat fragmentation for upland bird and other wildlife species, with adverse effects on infiltration of precipitation, induced changes to plant species composition that degrade habitat and reduc ...
