  1. 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, ...

  2. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Novel In-Cylinder Wear Coatings for Improved High Output Military Diesel Engine Performance and Durability

    SBC: NanoCoatings, Inc.            Topic: A18099

    Future U.S. Army vehicles will require engines with low heat rejection, high power density, lower-friction (15 % reduction), reduced fuel consumption (2-5% lower), and higher durability. Our team, NanoCoatings, Inc. (NCI) and Southwest Research Institute (SwRI), will down-select the most promising coating technologies and coating materials for both piston-rings and cylinder-liners. Our preliminary ...

  8. Free Space Optical (FSO) Communications in a Radio Frequency (RF) Denied Environment

    SBC: QuantaSpec Inc.            Topic: N181027

    QuantaSpec proposes an approach to a small size, light weight, low power, low cost Free Space Optical Communication System for use with tactical aircraft. The scope of work will assess trade space and mitigation approaches to overcome key challenges of FSO communication. These mitigation approaches can enable improved range, reliability, data rate, and security of communications.

  9. Autonomous Hull Grooming Vehicle

    SBC: Greensea Systems, Inc.            Topic: N18AT020

    The objective of this proposed effort is to develop a highly autonomous hull-grooming system that can be operated easily and cost-effectively with minimal supervision. This system will meet the rigorous standards of current manned-grooming operations using a rotating brush tool and will ensure complete coverage of the groomed area by providing on-hull positioning accuracy of 0.15m. We will develop ...

  10. Low-Cost, High-Performance Brayton Cryocooler

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N181041

    The Navy requires affordable and robust cryogenic cooling solutions for use in High Temperature Superconducting (HTS) cable technology. Currently, gaseous helium is cooled by a cryocooler through a cryogenic heat exchanger and circulated using a helium circulation fan through a superconducting cable. While Stirling refrigerators are commonly used in the cryogenics industry, they do not scale well ...
