  1. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. Energy Efficient and Low Latency Photonic Signal Processing using Excitable Lasers with Compressive Sampling

    SBC: BASCOM HUNTER TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N17AT027

    This program proposes to develop a photonic integrated circuit with compressive sampling using excitable lasers and neural network process. Compressive sampling overcomes the limitation of traditional approach to analog-to-digital conversion, and provides 2 to 10 folds of energy reduction and has low latency. Using excitable laser is an innovative approach that is fundamental to provide the simple ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Novel Multi-scale/Multi-physics Integrated Tool for the Prediction of Manufacturing-Induced Defects in Autoclave Composite Airframe Parts

    SBC: Composites Automation LLC            Topic: N15AT003

    A multi-scale/multi-physics software tool will be developed to predict manufacturing-induced defects, specifically void evolution during composites manufacturing, due to materials, parts, tooling and process parameters. Appropriately modeling the manufacturing process to identify potential problem areas will enable process optimization to produce structural components without defects. Specifically ...

  9. Autonomous seafloor geotechnical property sensor

    SBC: OMNI TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N06160

    Omni Technologies, Inc. (OTI) is proposing to develop an autonomous, geotechnical survey tool for mapping marine sediment properties. Our approach is to leverage one of the available man-portable autonomous underwater vehicles (AUVs) and develop an instrument capable of surveying a wide area. OTI proposes to combine a geotechnical instrument(s) with an acoustic sub-bottom profiler to combine lar ...

  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 ...
