  1. An advanced hyperspectral imaging system for target discrimination

    SBC: Dymas Research Incorporated            Topic: MDA04061

    The field of hyperspectral imaging has undergone tremendous development in the past decade. Research and development of the hyperspectral imaging in military applications has primarily focused on air-to-ground and space-to-ground reconnaissance of stationary military targets and terrestrial backgrounds. In this SBIR program, researchers of Dymas Research propose an innovative hyperspectral imaging ...

  2. Consolidated High Density and High Energy Density Nanocomposites Produced by Arrested Reactive Milling

    SBC: EXOTHERM CORP.            Topic: MDA04017

    Highly reactive nanocomposite powders will be consolidated into solid shapes suitable for use as structural components of munitions. Nanostructured, reactive composites of intermetallic or thermite compositions have been prepared recently by Arrested Reactive Milling (ARM). Specific materials prepared previously include compositions in the systems Al-Fe2O3, Al-MoO3, and B-Ti. The prepared nanoco ...

  3. Novel Infrared Point Sources

    SBC: FORUN TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: MDA04030

    There is a need for broadband infrared light source for simulation projection systems operating at room temperature. We are proposing to develop tunable quantum cascade infrared light emitters based on III-V nitride semiconductors. During Phase I, the proposed emitter will be designed and fabricated. Electro-luminescence in the infrared will be measured at room temperature and low temperatures. In ...

  4. Dynamic Spectral Filtering Techniques

    SBC: NANOOPTO CORP.            Topic: MDA04079

    NanoOpto proposes to combine novel nano-structured materials with liquid crystal actuators in an extension of resonant grating filter theory to design a highly compact, high performance, easily manufactured, dynamic spectral filter. The theoretical breakthrough is twofold: first, in the use of nano-scale gratings in the filter design - this allows significantly and continuously modify material pr ...

  5. Enhanced Photorefractive Lithium Niobate for Passive Agile Filters

    SBC: Nova Phase, Inc.            Topic: MDA04079

    Single crystals of lithium niobate can be used to construct a very simple passive agile filter, in which an incoming beam interferes with its own back-reflection to set up a diffraction grating that results in energy transfer and depletion of the transmitted power. The virtue of such an approach is that it can respond to incident coherent radiation of any wavelength within its range of sensitivit ...

  6. A Shortwave Infrared Imaging System for Ultra-High-Speed Tracking of Multiple Targets

    SBC: Sensors Unlimited, Inc.            Topic: MDA04068

    We will develop and deliver an imaging system capable of simultaneously tracking up to 8 independent objects at rates in excess of 1000 frames per second. The system will incorporate a novel indium gallium arsenide focal plane array and camera and will be sensitive to the 0.9 mm to 1.7 mm shortwave infrared wavelength band. The final deliverable will be capable of imaging multiple regions-of-int ...

  9. A highly manufacturable technology for radiation-hardened and high-temperature system applications

    SBC: UNITED SILICON CARBIDE, INC.            Topic: MDA04036

    This SBIR Phase I project is proposed to develop a highly manufacturable technology for radiation-hardened high-temperature SiC devices for both military and commercial applications. The innovative design in device structure and in processing of the proposed SiC power device will make it possible to offer the ultimate high radiation tolerance. The SiC device will also overcome the bottleneck probl ...

  10. Early Launch Detection, Booster Typing, and Kill Assessment Sensor Concepts

    SBC: Princton Science, Inc. (Scitec, Inc.)            Topic: MDA04022

    We propose to develop a novel aircraft-based sensor system for early launch detection, typing, tracking and kill assessment. In addition to providing enhanced capabilities with respect to current aircraft-based sensors for long range detection over wide areas in clear sky and cloud obscured scenarios, our proposed sensor will provide single sensor altitude estimations and capabilities for Kill As ...
