  1. Design and Develoment of High Performace Microbolometer using VOx, CNT and Graphene for IR Applications

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA04020

    The Microbolometer based IRFPA’s are currently in production for defense and Security applications. The microbolometer performance is limited by the TCR and frequency of operation. The proposed Phase II SBIR will allow DARPA to explore the further enhancement in TCR by more than an order of magnitude and higher frequency of operation from current 100 Hz. These improvements will allow use of the ...

  3. Design Tools for Hardware Trojan Detection and Mitigation

    SBC: BlueRISC, Inc.            Topic: SB173004

    With the increasing complexity of the modern semiconductor supply chain and increasing prevalence of the fabless manufacturing model, the hardware security and design integrity of integrated circuits are threatened by untrusted components such as hardware Trojans. BlueRISC proposes an automated toolkit that utilizes existing Design-For-Testability (DFT) structures (e.g. scan-chains) to enable the ...

  4. Machine Learning-Based Capability for Radioactive Threat Detection and Identification

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: DTRA162001

    Physical Sciences Inc. (PSI) proposes to develop advanced machine learning (ML) algorithms to perform detection, classification and identification of radioactive sources in near real time based on analysis of data generated by radiation sensors. The algorithms will be packaged as of an integrated Advanced Learning-Enabled Radioactive Threat Search (ALERTS) software suite compatible with new networ ...

  5. Daytime Marker

    SBC: Forward Photonics LLC            Topic: SOCOM173001

    There exists a challenge in observing laser designated targets in full daylight conditions for currently fielded near-infrared (NIR) laser designators. The visibility difficulty arises primarily from the significant background signal produced by the sun, which closely mimics the spectral signature of a blackbody . By extending the wavelength region in which laser designators/markers operate into t ...

  6. NON-CONTACT NON-INVASIVE SMART IR SENSOR FOR IN-SITU DIAGNOSTICS IN CVD REACTORS

    SBC: ACT Research Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A NOVEL NON-CONTACT NON-INVASIVE INFRARED (IR) SENSOR IS PROPOSED FOR IN-SITU DIAGNOSTICS IN CVD REACTORS. DURING CVD PROCESSES, THE SUBSTRATES WILL BE HEATED. THE IR SENSOR TAKES THE ADVANTAGE OF THE HEATED SUBSTRATE AS THE SOURCES OF IR RADIATION. BY SENSING AND ANALYZING THE IR RADIATION FROM A SUBSTRATE, THE SUBSTRATE SURFACE CAN BE PROBED. MOREOVER, LOW TEMPERATURE SILICON EPITAXY HAS BEEN CH ...
