  1. Efficient Arrays for Generating Light Emission (EAGLE)

    SBC: Chip Design Systems            Topic: AF16AT22

    With today's IRLED devices, >99.4% of input electrical power is converted into parasitic/waste heat. Moreover, as the local temperatures of the pixels increase due to the generated heat, IRLED optical efficiency is further reduced. Overall this severely limits the number and intensity of array pixels that can be simultaneously operated at high apparent temperatures. In Phase 2, we focus on develop ...

  2. Printable Materials with Embedded Electronics and Radio Frequency Components

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A16006

    To reduce size, weight, power and cost (SWaP-c), military platforms have been evolving towards a more integrated design approach that efficiently utilizes all available space. In fact, to accommodate limited space constraints many commercial off-the-shelf (COTS) systems will need to be replaced by custom designed and fabricated components. For radiofrequency (RF) electronic systems, this will requ ...

  3. Improved Skirt System for Air Cushion Vehicles

    SBC: Kubota Research Associates            Topic: N171042

    Both the Deep Skirt and Advanced Skirt System material used on Landing Craft Air Cushion (LCAC) experience significant wear during normal operations, which require expensive, time-consuming maintenance repairs. The US Navy is looking for innovative new material and manufacturing method for skirt systems to improve it durability and reduces Total Ownership Cost (TOC). Rubber skirts experience two m ...

  4. Functional Additive Manufacturing for Printable & Networkable Sensors to Detect Energetics and Other Threat Materials

    SBC: DeLUX Engineering, LLC            Topic: A17AT004

    Chemiresistors are an important class of electronic sensors that detect the presence of analytes/chemicals via a change in the resistance of a sensor element. A typical interdigitated electrode array is deposited onto an insulating substrate with metallic electrodes that have feature sizes in the 5-500 m range. The metal electrodes are typically sputter coated onto the substrate, using lithogra ...

  5. Integrable High-Performance Analog Optical Modulators

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF171126

    In this SBIR effort we will develop broadband, low V, high linearity, thin-film lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulators that are fully compatible with silicon photonic integrated circuits (PIC) foundry processes. Developing such devices as well a

  6. Tools for Cross-Platform Software Development and Performance Projection

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: AF161088

    Developers of modern software, particularly those targeting mobile or embedded platforms, are presented with a wide variety of hardware choices. Solutions can be built on microprocessors (e.g. x86, ARM, or Power architecture), GPUs (e.g. NVIDIAs Tegra), DSPs, FPGAs, or some combination of these technologies. Not only does this place a significant burden on programmers in understanding the intricac ...

  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. Instant k-Space Tomography for Spatial-Spectral Monitoring

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT013

    The Army is frequently forced to operate in hostile climates. Heavy fog, rain, snow, and dust storms can inhibit the performance of tracking technologies such as mid-wave infrared cameras. In such conditions, Army early warning systems are blinded and put personnel and assets at risk. There is a specific need for a degraded visual environment (DVE) penetrative target tracking solution. Radio fre ...

  9. Secure Protocol Unalterable Data (SPUD) Phase II

    SBC: Idaho Scientific LLC            Topic: MDA15009

    Idaho Scientific proposes the development of Secure Protocol Unalterable Data (SPUD) as a means to identify activity against system technologies. Approved for Public Release | 17-MDA-9219 (31 May 17)

  10. Locality Scanner for Helicopter Pilotage and Hazard Avoidance

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A15070

    Degraded visual environment (DVI) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awareness of the environment that can include both static a ...
