  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 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. 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.

  6. ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE TOP SOLAR CELL FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRATOR WITH IMPROVED AMO EFFICIENCY

    SBC: ASTROPOWER, INC.            Topic: N/A

    INCREASES IN SOLAR CELL EFFICIENCY CAN BE ACHIEVED WITH TANDEM MULTI-JUNCTION STRUCTURES TO IMPROVE THE PERFORMANCE AND SCALE OF SPACE PHOTOVOLTAIC CONCENTRATORS. THE "TOP SOLAR CELL" TANDEM APPROACH COULD INCREASE ENERGY CONVERSION EFFICIENCY BY AS MUCH AS 100%. A SELF-SUPPORTING ALUMINUM-GALLIUM-ARSENIDE (ALGAAS) TOP SOLAR CELL IS BEING DEVELOPED FOR MECHANICAL ATTACHMENT TO A SILICON CONCENTRAT ...

  7. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
