  1. Creating Spatial Disorientation in Flight Simulation

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: 122FA1

    Training in the symptoms of Spatial Disorientation (SD) has shown to be valuable in aiding pilots to recognize its onset and provide a means for mitigating its effects, but such demonstrations have traditionally been associated with specialized equipment and devices. Since the vast majority of pilots for the commercial aviation jet fleet are trained (or recertified) on 6-degree-of-freedom (DOF) h ...

  2. Dynamic Frequency Passive Millimeter-Wave Radiometer Based on Optical Up-Conversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: 941D

    In the proposed effort, we will leverage this extensive experience and capabilities to realize a frequency agile mmW radiometer that can cover the range of DC-110 GHz and can be scaled to DC-200 GHz under Phase II. Ours is a photonic system that multiplies and up-coverts a low-frequency reference signal onto an optical carrier (laser) using EO modulation, then uses the modulation sidebands to inj ...

  3. Innovative Cost-Effective and High-Temperature Portable Helipad

    SBC: FRONTIER PERFORMANCE POLYMERS CORPORATION            Topic: N122109

    The objective of this SBIR Phase I proposal is to develop a lightweight, cost-effective, and high-temperature resistant portable helipad for future helicopters and vertical landing aircrafts. Portable helipads are critical for forward operating bases, and enable aircrafts to land in any area safely and quickly without causing the brownout. The current technology is very effective for rotary crafts ...

  4. High Efficiency 808 nm Laser Pump Diode Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: N122112

    The Navy is interested in developing high power and high operation efficiency pumps at 808nm for multiple Navy applications. VCSEL technology offers an excellent choice for the development of such laser pumps. Princeton Optronics has developed the technology of high power VCSEL arrays delivering hundreds of watts of power from small chips with>55% efficiency at 976nm. We would use improvements of ...

  5. Gimbal-Free Wavelength-Division-Multiplexing Free Space Optical Communication (WDMFSO) for Ocean Surface Transceivers

    SBC: Wavefront            Topic: N122116

    Lasercom, namely, free-space optical (FSO) communication, has many advantages over the traditional RF communication channels widely used in military communications. Some notable advantages of lasercom are no need for licensing for frequency allocation, immunity to radio frequency interference, and low probability of interception and detection. The biggest disadvantage of lasercom, however, is its ...

  6. Self Powered Biosensors

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: DHP12010

    In response to the DHP 12-010 self powered biosensor solicitation, MaXentric proposes the VitalH system. Acknowledging the difficultly in creating a completely self-powered bio-sensor system that wirelessly transmits vital sign information, MaXentric has developed a solution which is extremely power efficient and minimally invasive. The VitalH garment continuously senses full ECG waveforms in a co ...

  7. Foil-Air Bearings for Small Gas Turbine Engines

    SBC: MECHANICAL SOLUTIONS, INCORPORATED            Topic: A123104

    As new applications arise for small gas turbine engines, the need to advance engine component technologies becomes essential, since they are required to run faster, hotter, and longer. Particularly critical in this regard are the shaft bearings. Since they operate without lubricant, air foil bearings have been identified as viable replacements to conventional liquid lubricated bearings. An adva ...

  8. BROAD RANGE RADIATION DETECTOR BASED ON SPECTRUM SHIFTS OF OPTO-MECHANICAL MICROCAVITY

    SBC: Lenterra, Inc.            Topic: A123108

    This SBIR Phase I proposal is aimed at the development of the ultra-sensitive detector for the far infrared (FIR) and terahertz (THz) bands of electromagnetic radiation. The device is inherently optical, operates at room temperature and of submillimeter size. The proposed technology is based on coupling the radiation to be measured to the mechanical degree of freedom of an optical microcavity and ...

  10. Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM13004

    In response to the SOCOM 13-004 Next Generation Portable Power Amplifier solicitation, MaXentric proposes the GreenAmp-lite system. The GreenAmp- & #8208;lite combines MaXentric"s envelope tracking technology with a power amplifier MMIC in a single small footprint package. This tight integration is made possible through the extremely high efficiency and low power dissipation provided by envelope t ...
