The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume supply of quality MUTC PD chips. In the first six mont ...

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

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  3. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Herein, PSI proposes to leverage extensive development in the area of optically sampled passive millimeter-wave imaging to develop dual mode active/passive imagers that provide both the intuitive, real-time imagery of a passive imager and the ranging capabilities of an active sensor. To accomplish this task, an optically sampled millimeter-wave receive array is sampled via optical pulsed laser gat ...

  5. Functional Dataflow Programming Toolchain for Portable Parallel Code

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB151004

    Modern computer systems often incorporate multiple computational devices such as conventional processors, graphics processing units (GPUs), specialized accelerators, and field-programmable gate arrays (FPGAs). Programmers are able to exploit these new architectures for improved performance and reduced power consumption, but at the cost of increased programing complexity. Further complicating matte ...

  6. Fault-to-Failure Progression Modeling of Propulsion System and Drive Train Bearings for Prognostic and Useful Performance Life Remaining Predictions

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N02195

    Military and commercial aircraft operators are moving toward predictive maintenance to minimize costs while maximizing asset availability and safety. Key technological prerequisites for this new approach are the ability to monitor the condition of critical components, and the ability to accurately forecast their remaining useful life. Phase I of this project clearly demonstrated the feasibility of ...

  7. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration- CPP

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    The ultimate goal of this Commercialization Pilot Program (CPP) effort is to design, build, and integrate flight-ready custom electronics for a 220-channel MMW distributed-aperture imager. This work bases on a previous SBIR project, in which we constructed a single-channel prototype of the phase control electronics in a laboratory (breadboard) environment. To enable control of a 220-channel system ...

  8. 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 ...
