  1. 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 ...

  2. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk.There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution.Radio frequen ...

  3. ATCOM SHARP Box for Real-Time Turbulence Mitigation

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: NASAA402

    When imaging over long distances, atmospheric turbulence between the camera and subject degrades the collected data limiting the effective resolution, regardless of the quality of the optic and sensor used. This reduction in image quality can have serious impacts on the ability to carry out missions by reducing situational awareness and preventing target identification. EM Photonics has been worki ...

  4. Resin Infusible Carbon Fiber Unidirectional Broadgoods for Fatigue Dominated Applications

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: N151072

    The development of a low-cost permeable unidirectional carbon fabric material withoutfiber undulation is needed in order to provide full property translation that is comparableto unidirectional prepreg. In this Phase I effort, Composites Automation LLC proposes tofabricate unidirectional carbon broadgood using thermoplastic binder with high enoughpermeability of the fabric to allow infusion proces ...

  5. Compact Passive Millimeter Wave Sensor for GPS-denied Navigation

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT26

    Under the proposed effort, PSI will leverage a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize the low size, weight, and power sensors required for UAV implementation.This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make large effective apertures in low SWaP form factors thereby maximizing achievable resolution.This sensor te ...

  6. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  7. Locality Scanner for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVI) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...

  8. Dense Arrays for High-Fidelity, Optically-Sampled Passive Millimeter-wave Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Under the proposed effort, PSI will continue to develop a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize dense form factor arrays.This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make large effective apertures in low SWaP form factors thereby maximizing achievable resolution.This sensor technology has already reached TRL 6 w ...

  9. Tools for Cross-Platform Software Development and Performance Projection

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF161088

    Developers of modern software, particularly those targeting mobile or embedded platforms, are presented with a wide variety of hardware choices. Solutions can be built on microprocessors (e.g. x86, ARM, or Power architecture), GPUs (e.g. NVIDIAs Tegra), DSPs, FPGAs, or some combination of these technologies. Not only does this place a significant burden on programmers in understanding the intricac ...

  10. Novel Multi-scale/Multi-physics Integrated Tool for the Prediction of Manufacturing-Induced Defects in Autoclave Composite Airframe Parts

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: N15AT003

    A multi-scale/multi-physics software tool will be developed to predict manufacturing-induced defects, specifically void evolution during composites manufacturing, due to materials, parts, tooling and process parameters. Appropriately modeling the manufacturing process to identify potential problem areas will enable process optimization to produce structural components without defects. Specifically ...
