  1. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  5. Coordinated Asset Allocation and Route Planning for Anti-Submarine Warfare

    SBC: QUANTUM LEAP INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N111044

    Existing Anti-Submarine Warfare (ASW) mission planners can specify patrol regions for available sensor platforms and provide detailed, coordinated search tracks for each platform. However, most of the planners have not considered any real-time sensor information feedback during optimization and cannot support dynamic re-planning. To better support ASW in a dynamic and uncertain environment, Quantu ...

  6. EW Countermeasures Against Passive MMW Sensors

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N092133

    An emerging class of passive millimeter-wave (pmmW) sensors currently provides an unmitigated threat to the US Navy. While considerable effort has been expended reducing RADAR signatures of the next generation of Naval vessels, these ship designs often present significant signatures to pmmW sensors. To date, little has been done to understand or reduce these signatures. However, as a new class of ...

  8. Heterogeneous Integration of Nanomembrane Based Photonic/Electronic Signal Processing Modules

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF08BT08

    ABSTRACT: Crystalline semiconductor nanomembranes (NMs) possess the electronic/photonic properties of bulk material, although they are flexible, deformable, and conformable. Semiconductor nanomembranes offer unique opportunities for novel active/ passive electronic, and photonic devices suitable for vertically stacked high-density photonic/electronic integration. Silicon-on-insulator substrates. ...

  9. High Performance, Ultra Low Power SPA-1 ASIC for Space Plug-and-Play Avionics

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF093082

    ABSTRACT: The Space Plug-and-play Avionics (SPA) initiative is designed to improve the ability of the US military to respond to rapidly changing operational needs by creating, integrating, and launching a new spacecraft in less than one week. This would provide major benefits to war fighters on the ground, in the sky, and at sea. SPA-1 ASICs using I2C as the transport interface will likely be t ...
