    SBC: Chip Design Systems LLC            Topic: AF18AT017

    We propose to develop an innovative concept of the high speed dynamic IRSP that combines components and devices from proven suppliers with novel system-level research topics from CDS and University of Delaware. Having previously built and delivered working LED IRSPs to users gives CDS a unique advantage. In line with system theme of the solicitation, our phase 1 research topics are focused on syst ...

  2. A Novel, Nanostructured, Metal-organic Frameworks-Based Product Loss Prevention Technology in the Oil and Natural Gas Sector

    SBC: Framergy, Inc.            Topic: 17NCER2C

    To reach the end user, oil and gas production at the wellhead must be transmitted through the country and distributed to a wide range of customers. This logistical system requires natural gas gathering lines, processing facilities, product storage tanks and lots of other equipment. What results is air pollution caused by industry losses during these operations and the use of continuous or intermit ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Architecting the Future of Intelligent Tutoring Systems (AFITS)

    SBC: Eduworks Corporation            Topic: A17099

    Eduworks proposes to develop a reference architecture (components, protocols, APIs, standards) for deploying intelligent tutoring systems (ITS) as services in training environments ranging from traditional LMS-centric environments to multi-component live, virtual, and constructive (LVC) environments that include games, simulations, and VR. We will start with a baseline service-oriented architectur ...

  5. Dynamic Free-Space Optical Femtocells for High Speed Undersea Platform Communication

    SBC: E-Lambda LLC            Topic: N181070

    Recent advances in free space optical (FSO) technologies promise a new way to provide energy efficient, high speed, and secure wireless communications. Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Lasers (VCSELs) are now sufficiently mature that it is possible to transmit data at high bit rates reliably using simple energy efficient modulation schemes. Also, FSO and RF devices can operate in the same location ...

  6. Electronically Actuated Pixelated Aperture for High Sensitivity WFOV Imaging in Sunlight

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF173013

    In this Phase I SBIR, a Voxtel Inc.-led team will develop and prototype a novel low-cost solar-brightness-blocking optical system for imagers to enable high-quality imaging over a wide field of view (FOV > 90 degrees) in the presence of direct sunlight within the FOV. The system will be based on a biologically inspired compound eye, with built-in small-FOV (< 3 degree) apertures to block sunlight ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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, ...

  10. MWIR Staircase APD Receivers

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF172011

    AlInAsSb multistage APDs will be designed to achieve avalanche gain up to M = 1024, and excess noise of k < 0.02. The APD structure will be based on a staircase APD architecture, where composition and field are varied sequentially such that electron ionization is promoted and hole ionization is supressed. Using band-edge modeling tools and custom numeric simulation tools, in Phase I, the staircase ...
