  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 ...

  5. A COMPUTERIZED BENCH-TOP INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE TEST CHAMBER

    SBC: Northeast Research Institute I            Topic: N/A

    CONFIRMING THE ACCURAY OF LIFE-PROTECTING INDUSTRIAL HYGIENE TEST EQUIPMENT OR SIMULATING MILITARY ENVIRONMENTS OFTEN REQUIRES SOPHISTICATED AND CUMBERSOME TEST CHAMBERS DEPENDENT ON COMPLICATED CALCULATIONS. THE CALIBRATION OF SUCH TEST EQUIPMENT MAY BE EASILY COMPROMISED BY OPERATOR ERROR WHERE INVOLVED CALCULATIONS ARE USED AND COMPLICATED INTERCONNECTIONS AND VALVES ARE EMPLOYED. WE PROPOSE TO ...

  6. A DIRECTIONAL LASER SENSOR FOR EYE PROTECTION SYSTEMS

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE, COMPACT AND FAST DIRECTIONAL LASER SENSOR BASED ON THE LATEST ACHIEVEMENTS IN PHOTODETECTION TECHNOLOGY IS PROPOSED. THE LASER SENSING DEVICE USES A SPHERE LENS AS A DIRECTION IDENTIFIER, WITH A WIDE (+OR-90 DEG) FIELD OF VIEW. AN INCIDENT LASER BEAM IS FOCUSED BY THE SPHERE LENS ONTO A HEMISPHERICAL, AMORPHOUS SILICON, POSITION SENSITIVE DETECTOR LOCATED AT OR NEAR THE FOCAL SURFAC ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. ACOUSTO-OPTIC TUNABLE ULTRAVIOLET SNESOR

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    THE EFFECTIVENESS OF KINETIC ENERGY SPACE-BASED INTERCEPTOR MAY BE CONSIDERABLY ENHANCED BY ON-BOARD UV SENSORS CAPABLE OF DETECTING A POTENTIAL TARGET'S UV SIGNATURE. SUCH UV SENSORS MAY PLAY A CRITICAL ROLE IN TARGET IDENTIFICATION, TRACKING, SEEKING AND DISCRIMINATION AND MAY PROVE INSTRUMENTAL FOR EARLY WARNING OF ATTACK AND KILL DETERMINATION. SPACE-BASED APPLICATIONS, IN PARTICULAR, HAVE CRE ...

  9. ACOUSTOOPTIC IR IMAGING SPECTROMETER

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC RESEARCH ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    AN INNOVATIVE CONCEPT FOR A TUNABLE IMAGING IR SPECTROMETER IS PROPOSED. THE DEVICE WILL CONSIST OF AN ACOUSTOOPTIC TUNABLE FILTER COUPLED TO A TWO-DIMENSIONAL FOCAL PLANE ARRAY DETECTOR. THIS IMAGING SPECTROMETER WILL COMBINE HIGH THROUGHPUT (APPROACHING 100%) WITH THE TUNABILITY AND HIGH RESOLUTION OF A GRATING SPECTROMETER, AND THE TWO-DIMENSIONAL IMAGING CAPABILITY OF AN INTERFERENCE FILTER. T ...
