  1. Wavelength Specific Dielectric Obscurants using Electromagnetically Engineered Nanoparticles

    SBC: LUMILANT, INC.            Topic: A13AT016

    As infrared (IR) electo-optical sensors improve in both availability and quality a strong need exists to have comparable improvements in the performance of military obscurants within the IR band. Conventional approaches for creating effective IR obscurants have relied primarily on shaped metal particles with high aspect ratios (e.g. rods, flakes).

  2. Wafer-Level Electronic-Photonic Co-Packaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT01

    In this STTR effort we will develop key packaging techniques for wafer-level hybrid electrical-optical co-packaging based on silicon photonic platform. These techniques include packaging LiNbO3 modulator on insulator (LNOI), high-speed modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes packaging and high-efficiency fiber coupling. Silicon is the desired host material for photonic integrated circuit ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Volume Charge Distribution Measurement in Thin Dielectrics

    SBC: Box Elder Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF11BT20

    ABSTRACT: Over half of spacecraft system anomalies attributed to interactions with the natural space environmentincluding electron upsets, damage to components, power system debilities, and complete satellite failuresare attributed to spacecraft charging. While measurements of electron emission, surface potential and electrostatic breakdown provide important information, the"holy grail"of materi ...

  6. Vector Hydrophone Torpedo Defense Array

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N05T030

    An advanced vector hydrophone towed array is proposed for surface ship torpedo defense applications. Vector hydrophone promise to provide much-needed array gain in aperture-constrained systems. The additional gain results in significant increases in detection ranges and/or decreases in false alarm rates. A physics-based vector sensor array simulator will be developed in a modular architecture. ...

  8. Universal Imaging Sensor: Robotic Broadband Night Vision Camera

    SBC: B & W Tek Inc.            Topic: ST071009

    Imaging sensors are a crucial component of modern defense. The ideal sensor has acute visual sensing capabilities and communicates instantly when threats are identified. It should also have night vision capabilities and cover a broadband spectral range including near ultraviolet and infrared. A robotic broadband night vision camera is highly desirable. Such a robotic broadband low-light-level came ...

  9. Universal Imaging Sensor

    SBC: Latel Corporation            Topic: ST071009

    In the conduct of modern warfare, situation awareness of forces and the locality of hostile elements are of paramount importance. Other non-imaging sensors such as acoustic and seismic ones are helpful toward this end, but their probability of detect and target identification ability are limited. The only absolute representation of the situation is a video image. This proposal presents the design ...

  10. Ultrafast Hybrid Active Materials and Devices for Compact RF Photonics

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF09BT25

    Optical components for RF-photonic applications such as communication satellites, avionics, optical networks, sensors and phase array radar will require high speed, high capacity and low power. Due to the nature of crystalline electro-optic materials (LiNbO3, GaAs, InP, etc.) today’s commercial electro-optical devices do not perform well above 40 GHz. This limitation can be circumvented by utili ...
