  1. Widely-Tunable Distributed-feedback Mid-Infrared Laser for Standoff Chemical Detection

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: A10075

    Important applications such as chemical sensing call for compact, broadband, high brightness lasers in the critical 3 -5 micron region of the mid-infrared spectrum. We propose to first design (Phase I) and then to produce (Phase II) a high power, broadband QCL source that can be rapidly tuned over>100 nm and is inherently rugged in its design. To accomplish this, we will integrate our patent-pendi ...

  2. Wide FOV and Fast Active Optical Detection System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: A09013

    In this SBIR program, we propose to develop a wide angle and fast optical detection system for measuring the slung load cable angle and angular rate in real time, which is necessary to stabilize the external loads in heavy-lift vertical resupply operations by fleet helicopters or unmanned helicopters. This development efforts leverage Agiltrons extensive experiences in developing the variety of im ...

  3. Wideband Fast Switched RF Synthesizer

    SBC: SenSyTech, Inc. Imaging Group            Topic: N/A

    The current market for fast switching frequency sythesizers is growing rapidly. Most synthesizers available today will not meet the stringent requirements for switching quickly, providing spectrally pure RF outputs and minimizing physical size and cost. As part of a current SBIR program, S.T. Research has developed a wideband, fast switching synthesizer, based on the use of broadband phase-locke ...

  4. Virtual RF Environment

    SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC            Topic: A09060

    Echo Ridge and partner Comsearch, propose to design, build, test, demonstrate and validate a prototype DYnamic Spectrum Environment Emulator (DYSE), which provides a Virtual RF Environment (VRE) for RF system testing. Our vision for the end state of the effort is the availability of a productized DYSE (hardware and application software) configured from COTS components, useful for lab-based develop ...

  5. Virtual Pilot for High-Fidelity Rotorcraft Simulation

    SBC: AVID LLC            Topic: A10174

    AVID will implement and compare the performance of two algorithms to provide robust solutions to the problem of calculating control inputs for user-specified trajectories: an"indirect"dynamic inversion approach that inverts the vehicle aerodynamic model to provide the control inputs necessary for the desired dynamics, and a"direct"numerical optimization approach using Sequential Quadratic Programm ...

  6. Video Transmission in a Non-Line-of-Sight Environment

    SBC: LSA            Topic: N/A

    Success in the battlefield requires extensive distribution of near-real-time data amongst all levels of war fighters. Distribution may be limited by terrain, obstacles in the communication path, or by the impending risk to human life. Unmanned vehicles extend the range of distribution, while reducing the risk of casualties, by providing a platform for non-line-of-sight communication relay systems. ...

  7. UV-enhanced Raman sensors with high SNR and spectral selectivity

    SBC: TIAX LLC            Topic: A11021

    To support a variety of applications in environmental chemical sensingincluding homeland security, defense, and commercial applicationswe will develop a UV-enhanced Raman spectroscopy system which demonstrates improved SNR by up to 5 orders of magnitude and spectral resolution by up to 2 orders of magnitude, compared to standard Raman spectroscopy. Along with our Phase I performance results, we w ...

  8. UV-Enhanced APD Receiver for Free Space Optical Communications

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: A11033

    Free space optical communication (FSOC) systems offer rapid data transfer rates, allowing practical wireless relay of complex data sets. To further promote the use of this technology for medium-range optical communication links operating with eye-safe ultra-violet (UV) sources, compact and robust receiver modules with high responsivity that operate in a range of environmental conditions are requi ...

  9. Utilizing Optical Defocusing and Computational Imaging for Laser Intensity Reduction at CCD Focal Planes

    SBC: Aerodyne Research, Inc.            Topic: A08064

    Sensor protection against agile-frequency lasers is a critical Army Technology Objective (ATO). We propose simple defocusing of existing sensor optics as a layer within the optical limiting (OL) stack. This requires no additional optical components, and promotes compatibility with other OL stack elements. The challenge resides in computing the inverse filtering operation to recover the in-focus im ...

  10. Ultra-low Power Wireless Sensors for Advanced, In Situ Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: A10112

    The ability to monitor infrastructure such as bridges, storage tanks, pipelines and buildings is critical to enhancing safety, reliability, and overall structural integrity of existing and future military structural deployments. In order to reduce the need for costly scheduled maintenance while also preventing the potentially catastrophic failure of such structures, a multi-mode distributed sensor ...
