  2. "Annulus Clutter Filter" for Infrared Surveillance Sensors

    SBC: SAGE TECHNOLOGIES            Topic: N/A

    Improved clutter suppression in Infrared Surveillance Sensors is acheived by reprocessing the data fields in the vicinity of detected Targets to distinquish between true Target responses and leak through Clutter responses that arise from clutter "Microgradients" hidden well below the primary clutter flucuations. The clutter "Microgradients" may exhibit rapid spatial changes in gradient properties; ...

  6. 02-214B Gallium Nitride UV Detector Array with Micro-discharge Amplification.

    SBC: EWING TECHNOLOGY ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This STTR Phase I effort will develop a Gallium Nitride avalanche photodiode detector array. The detector array will be sensitive in the UV, but will use a photoelectron avalanche mechanism that is applicable to detectors working at other wavelengths. Assuch the core technology can be readily extended to shorter UV wavelengths with the substitution of a different semi-conductor photo-sensitive ...

  7. 1 kW Fiber Lasers and Alignment Free SBC

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: MDA04005

    Spectral Beam Combination (SBC) has been proven as a scalable beam combining approach for high power fiber lasers. Demonstrations at Aculight have shown 522 Watts of near diffraction limited power from three combined fiber laser sources; and the dispersive element, a Multi-Layer-Dielectric (MLD) diffraction grating, will operate well above 1.5 kWatts/cm2 of incident power allowing ~100 kWatt sour ...

  9. 1 kW Man-portable Hybrid-Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: EDTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    "EDTEK proposes a program to develop and validate a conceptual design for a prototype, man-portable, 1 kW multi-fuel thermophotovoltaic (TPV) generator suitable for battlefield use. This program addresses both the problems of weight reduction to allow thegenerator to be man-portable and low thermal and RFI/EFI signatures reducing the possibility of field detection. The proposed TPV technology us ...

  10. 1 kW Man-portable Hybrid-Electric Power System using Catalytic Fuel Ignition Technology

    SBC: EDTEK, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of this Phase II SBIR project is to develop and demonstrate a 1 kW man-portable multi-fueled thermophotovoltaic (TPV) power system. The TPV technology is based on a grey body (silicon carbide) emitter, resonant mesh infrared bandpassfilters, and GaSb photovoltaic cells. These key components have been developed on previous programs. The approach to achieving this goal is to ...
