  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 II-VI Colloidal Quantum Dot Imaging System for High-Speed and High-Resolution Full Stokes Polarimetry

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: A16130

    Infrared polarimetry has proven to enhance target detection and tracking in cluttered environments, and is of significant importance to high energy laser weapon targeting systems. Modern state of the art infrared polarimeters possess numerous limitations that render them impractical for tracking at high slew-rates. Efforts have been made to implement micropolarization filters directly onto a foca ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Hand-Held Non-Contact Burn Triage System Utilizing Visible and Thermographic Imaging in 3D.

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: DHP16C005

    Thermal injuries are common in all modern military conflicts and care given shortly after a severe burn is critical to its treatment and recovery. Triage for burn injuries is primarily separated into superficial burns which will heal naturally, and deep burns which require surgery. In far-forward environments non-expert combat medics must make burn triage decisions without the aid of lab equipment ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. A Tool for Automated Design and Verification for Spacecraft GN&C Systems

    SBC: Rational CyPhy, Inc.            Topic: AF171075

    Autonomous operations are essential for the deployment, construction, and maintenance missions in space, and failures in guidance and navigation that support autonomy, often incur extreme costs. Designing and developing guidance, navigation, and control (

  8. Advanced Combustor Designs Utilizing Inlet Swirl for High Acceleration of Gravity (G) Combustion

    SBC: SPYTEK AEROSPACE CORPORATION            Topic: AF071179

    Spytek Aerospace will soon become a low cost supplier of small high performance gas turbines for expendable UAV military operations, university research centers and hobbyists. During Phase I Spytek Aerospace analytically examined and experimentally assessed two `swirl-maintained' diffuserless high g combustor designs in our ATG-2 combustion rig and engine. Both Phase I concepts feature ultra-low ...

  9. Advanced High Operating Temperature Mid-Wave Infrared Sensors

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05052

    The goal of this project is to reduce the cooling requirements of MWIR HgCdTe infrared photon detectors and improve detector performance at present-day cryogenic operating temperatures. During Phase I, we designed innovative Pn-N detectors and established the feasibility of growing the required HgCdTe-based structures by molecular beam epitaxy. Using this approach in a collaborative effort with th ...

  10. 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 ...
