  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. Widely Tunable High Power Quantum Cascade Laser Arrays for Standoff Detection

    SBC: Pendar Technologies, LLC            Topic: A14AT015

    As part of an ongoing ECBC Phase II STTR (Topic #A14A-T015), Pendar Technologies is developing in collaboration with MIT Lincoln Laboratory a broadly tunable, fully beam combined, high power source that is based on Pendars proprietary distributed feedback quantum cascade laser array (DFB-QCLA) technology. The sequential Phase II SBIR proposed herein aims at improving this source (in particular in ...

  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. 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 ...

  5. Weather "Action-Chain" Enabler (ACE) Application

    SBC: Blue Storm Associates Inc.            Topic: 834

    In this Phase II effort, PEMDAS Technologies and Innovations (PEMDAS), in collaboration with subcontractor Westover Studios, proposes to develop a functional prototype of the Weather “Action Chain” Enabler (ACE) application using the technologies identified, knowledge gained, and preliminary design conceived during the Phase I effort. As designed, the Weather ACE application will be a non-intr ...

  6. Wearable Threat Detection System for Opioids

    SBC: Clear Scientific, LLC            Topic: A18142

    Opioids are a class of drug compounds that pose lethal threats to the warfighter even in small quantities. However, the rapid identification of opioid intoxication in individuals before the onset of more deleterious and lethal effects remains a foundational gap in clinical diagnosis and sensing technology. Current diagnosis in the field relies almost entirely on buddy aid, leaving a strong need fo ...

  7. 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 ...

  8. 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 ...

  9. 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. ...

  10. 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 ...
