  1. 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 ...

  2. 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. ANGRIBRD: ANGR for Intelligent Binary Runtime Defense

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF182104

    This project will investigate the use of offensive binary analysis techniques to extract data from program binaries for use by a runtime diagnostic engine capable of malware detection and response. The open-source Angr framework provides the basis for the tools used to collect the analysis data needed to support a diagnostic engine. A diagnostic engine capable of using these collected results will ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
