  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. Thermal Control for Resilient Spacecraft

    SBC: LOADPATH, LLC            Topic: AF103107

    The overall goal of this effort is to support high-power SmallSats by maturing resilient thermal control technologies. Technologies include both Advanced Thermal Model (ATM) software and Resilient Thermal Control (RTC) hardware. The ATM software utilizes a reduced-order modeling (ROM) approach to greatly reduce thermal modeling overhead. New features will be added to the ATM software to enhance it ...

  4. Sensor Open System Architecture (SOSA) Architectural Research

    SBC: IDEAS ENGINEERING & TECHNOLOGY, LLC            Topic: AF171062

    This SBIR Phase 2 project will continue the development of a Radiation Tolerant, VITA74-compliant platform for C4ISR applications for small spacecraft. The small spacecraft industry has been successful in using Commercial-Off-The-Shelf (COTS) components to enable low-cost high-performance space missions. The drawback of this approach is that it sacrifices the reliability of the spacecraft, limitin ...

  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 ...
