  1. Self-stabilized monolithic solid state single frequency laser

    SBC: OPTIGRATE CORPORATION            Topic: SB12A001

    The general objective of this proposal is to design a self-stabilized monolithic single frequency solid state laser. The main advantage of the approach is based on the integration of a laser cavity within active laser material - Nd-doped photo-thermo-refractive (PTR) glass, which allows constructing narrow line unidirectional, environmental insensitive laser. This glass possesses both properties o ...

  4. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...

  5. Epitaxial growth for facet passivation of high power diode lasers

    SBC: SDPHOTONICS LLC            Topic: SB122005

    A new facet coating material for high power diode lasers will be developed that reduces interface states at the cleaved facet and increases facet cooling. The facet coating is expected to be more robust and lead to increased power and brightness in high power diode lasers, bars and stacks. The facet coating technique makes use of commercial processes based on vacuum cleaving and epitaxial growth, ...

  6. Fast Pyrolytic Solid Waste Remediation for Small Contingency Base Camps


    Mainstream Engineering Corp. (MEC) proposes developing a pyrolytic solid waste remediation system (py-SWRS) for processing mixed solid waste at small contingency base camps. The proposed py-SWRS unit is a scaled-down and simplified version of a portable pyrolysis reactor already under development at MEC for greenwaste processing at landfills located on large, fixed DoD installations. MEC"s portabl ...

  9. Real-time Range/Doppler Migration Mitigation Techniques for Enhanced Moving Target Detection


    This SBIR project aims to address one of the greatest challenges in the Counter-Rocket, Artillery and Mortar (C-RAM) area, i.e., high-speed low-RCS target detection. To tackle this challenge, an innovative moving target detection scheme, including a simple but effective range/Doppler migration mitigation algorithm, is proposed. Our preliminary evaluation indicates that the proposed approach can si ...

  10. Extended Range Low Power Personnel Detection and Classification Sensor

    SBC: Plasmonics Inc.            Topic: A12038

    The research and development proposed here will examine using sparse-linear-detector-array configurations to lower the power consumption of personnel detection sensors. Plasmonics will design and test a bread board LWIR pyroelectric sensor to show that detector arrays with sufficient sensitivity to meet the application needs can be built. Optical systems that can reliably detect and classify human ...
