  1. 1024 x 1024 Snapshot Two-Color Infrared Focal Plane Array (FPA) for Air-to-Ground Applications

    SBC: ADVANCED DEVICE TECHNOLOGY, INC.            Topic: N05032

    We propose to develop “High Performance, Large Format Mid-Wave Focal Plane Arrays on Type II Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Material”. The Innovative Features of the project are: • Detector Arrays on Type II SLS Material. High Performance Detector Arrays are designed on Type II SLS material. The Type II Detector has several advantages as compared to Type I HgCdTe and InSb Detectors. The ...

  2. Algorithms for Rapid and Accurate Depth Localization of Targets for Mine Avoidance

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N04218

    Under SBIR Topic N04-218, Applied Physical Sciences Corp. (APS) developed and demonstrated candidate modifications to the existing DD(X) Integrated Undersea Warfare System’s High Frequency (IUWS-HF) bow sonar signal processor that would improve the sonar’s mine-hunting capabilities in refractive, multipath environments. In Phase I, we derived a localization algorithm that correlates measured ...

  3. Development of Lightweight and Low Cost Advanced Structural Materials for Off-board Surface Vessels (OBVs)

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06T021

    Off-board vehicles deployed in littoral environments are subjected to severe operational loads, including wave slamming, high-speed collision with debris, and underwater explosions. They additionally serve as sensor platforms, and would benefit from reduced self- and radiated noise for towed array performance and mine defense. Consequently, we propose to exploit the flexibility of design offered ...

  4. Shock and Vibration Mounting System for Machinery and Electronics

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N05151

    Shock mitigation and vibration isolation of electronics, machinery and other selected components are critical in the design and safe operation of Naval surface combatants. Based on the different forcing functions and constraints that characterize 1. shock loading, and 2. vibration isolation of potentially noisy equipment, two classes of mounts have evolved. Neither class performs satisfactorily ...

  5. Pier-Side, Bow Sonar Calibration Methodology for Wave Piercing Hull Forms

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06139

    The DD(X) destroyer relies on sophisticated, dual frequency bow sonar for mine-avoidance, ASW, and torpedo defense. Existing approaches to in situ bow sonar calibration that use booms to extend hydrophones beyond the sonar, along with legacy nearfield-to-farfield projection algorithms, will not work for DD(X) due to the ship’s strict radar cross section requirement and unique hull and sonar arr ...

  6. Dynamic Compensation System for Towed Bodies

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06137

    The use of unmanned surface vessels (USV) towing underwater sensors will be part of the Littoral Combat Ship concept of operations for mine, anti-submarine, and anti-surface ship warfare. However, the wave-induced motions of the USV may degrade or limit sensor performance unless measures are taken to decouple the tow body motions from the USV motions. Given limitations on available USV power and ...

  7. Mounting of Acoustic Vector Sensors on UUVs

    SBC: Applied Physical Sciences Corp.            Topic: N06145

    Intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance operations in the littorals require higher sensor densities than are generally necessary in blue-water environments, and inevitably place sensor platforms within striking range of enemy combatants. Technological preparations for the littoral battlespace have motivated development of unmanned underwater vehicles as cost effective ASW and mine detection ...

  8. Advanced Lighting System Affordable Technology (ALSAT)

    SBC: C3I, Inc            Topic: N06056

    The Advanced Lighting System Affordable Technology (ALSAT) effort proposes to develop a low cost, high power, full color spectrum and full dimming level standardized LED light engine/fixture that is form, fit, function compatible with existing shipboard lighting configurations. The light engine/fixture will employ active real time spectral control that will provide repeateable and standardized out ...

  9. Miniature Electronic Sniffer for Navy Vertical Take off Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (VTUAVs)

    SBC: Connecticut Analytical Corporation            Topic: N06T010

    The use of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in warfare, reconnaissance, and surveillance activities has increased dramatically over the past decade and, for the first time, offers cost effective, intelligence-gathering capabilities without placing soldiers and sailors at unnecessary risk. Current UAV platforms have already been equipped with a limited range of sensors such as miniature audiovisual ...

  10. Enhanced Realtime Millimeter Wave Imaging Using Hardware Acceleration

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N06079

    While the need for effective millimeter wave (mmW) imaging systems is clear, there remains a significant gap in the technology needed to realize it, namely the ability to process and enhance mmW imagery in a real-time manner. This is particularly important because raw mmW images appear very fuzzy, are color mapped, and have regions of intensity that are not normally associated with visible and IR ...
