  1. 1 Micron Fiber Optic Receiver for Mil-Aero Environment

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N171031

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a high-power, high-speed photodiode (PD) receiver optimized for operation at 1 micron wavelength based on collaboration with Dr. J.C. Campbells research group at the UVA. Demand of such photonic receiver arose from the urgent need of high performance microwave photonic links that replace the conventional metal cables for better SWaP, immunity to EMI and broader ...

  2. A Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS)

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: A08075

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the Oklahoma State University (OKState) detail the development of a novel Cavity Enhanced Terahertz Absorption Spectrometer (CETAS). Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) the use of a small Whispering- Gallery- Mode (WGM) cavity to achieve very long pathlength; and b) the integration of the WGM cavity with the conventional pulsed and continu ...

  3. A compact, low cost, in- process welding defects detection system based on thermal plasma emission

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: N08178

    In this proposal, AlphaSense, Inc. (AI) and the University of Michigan (UM) detail the development of a compact, portable, and low cost in-process weld defects detection system. Key innovations of the proposed system include: a) weld defects monitoring based on plasma emission characteristics; b) use the electron temperature of the plasma as an indicator of the weld quality, c) use multiple plasma ...

  4. A Novel, Low Cost and Handheld Metal Sorting Sensor for Chemical Cleaning and Stripping Process

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: AF161009

    ABSTRACT: After a certain amount of service time, many aircraft components need to be cleaned and the coatings on those parts need to be stripped. Prior to the chemical cleaning and stripping processes, those parts are routinely examined by inspectors to locate the part numbers and find their matches on a list. Such a visual inspection process is not only time consuming, but also prone to human er ...

  5. Advanced Intelligent Web-Based Options to Acquire and Analyze Aircraft Health and Test Data

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: N08122

    Topic Synopsis: Current aircraft disposition tools are not designed to take advantage of predictive prognostic information that will be available on new systems such as the F-35 PHM system or the proposed Maintenance and Monitoring system for the E-2D Hawkeye. The central challenges in this topic are to (1) develop automated reasoner technologies to distill large volumes of PHM data into actionabl ...

  6. Advanced Manufacturing Technologies

    SBC: SENTIENT CORPORATION            Topic: DLA152001

    In response to DLA SBIR Topic DLA152-001 for Advanced Manufacturing Technologies, Sentient Corporation (Sentient) proposes to develop a life cycle cost optimization tool based on our commercial DigitalClone modeling technology. This tool will enable users to evaluate the tradeoffs between alternate manufacturing processes, implementation costs, and the performance/durability of the resultant comp ...

  7. Advanced RIIC Technology to Increase Density and Efficiency of IRLED Arrays (ART-IDEA)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF171015

    We propose to study how extraction efficiency can be improved by reducing IRLED pixel pitch. Our approach is to scale the size of RIIC pixel and IRLED device from 24-microns down to 12-microns and to lower the IRLED drive voltage from 10 Volts to 5 Volts.

  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 ...

  9. Automated Biological Sample Concentration and Detection System

    SBC: ANP TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: A06T022

    ANP Technologies proposes to integrate a commercially available air sample concentrator from ICx MesoSystems with our automated detection instrument that uses the NIDS® multiplexed assays and NIDS® Auto-Reader (AR) device. A trigger device may also be incorporated into the final system, which might better enable the system to serve as a remote monitor of air streams. The proposed effort will b ...

  10. Biologically Inspired Reconfigurable Computer for High-speed Object Avoidance in Small UAVs

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N08079

    For this project, we plan to collaborate with researchers in the neuroscience department at the University of Delaware to develop an FPGA-based embedded computer, inspired in the brains small vertebrates (fish). The mechanisms of object detection and avoidance in fish have been extensively studied by our Delaware collaborators. The midbrain optic tectum is a biological multimodal navigation cont ...
