  3. High Performance Rad Hard Analog to Digital Converter Architectures

    SBC: Advanced Science and Novel Technology            Topic: MDA07003

    Electronic components for future space based radar systems on chip (SOC) must function correctly in natural and radiation filled environments while providing state-of-the-art performance. The corresponding SOC must employ advanced, extra low-power, radiation-hardened (RH), analog-to-digital converters (ADCs) capable of operating at multi-giga sampling speeds. To satisfy the described needs, we pro ...

  4. Forecasting IR Satellite Imagery for Adaptive Sensor Tasking

    SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & ENVIRONMENTAL RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: MDA07033

    Accurate forecasts of infrared satellite imagery are needed to optimize tasking of valuable and limited space borne surveillance assets. Atmospheric constituents such as clouds, aerosols, and water vapor can negatively impact the ability of IR surveillance systems to monitor activities on the ground. Due to their chaotic nature, atmospheric impacts are particularly severe for applications that r ...

  5. Broad Spectral Range Detectors for Vis/SWIR Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA07001

    Aerius proposes to build detectors with low dark current and a cutoff wavelength of 3.0 um, using InP-based detectors. These detectors do not suffer from the same problems conventional "extended-wavelength" suffer, such as high dark current, low quantum efficiency, and limited spectral range. Aerius proposes to achieve, high quality, high uniformity extended short-wavelength infrared (SWIR) det ...

  6. High-Power Vertical Cavity Laser Diode Arrays for Space Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06020

    Instead of making incremental improvements to the inherent weakness of the laser facet, Aerius Photonics proposes to fabricate space-qualifiable laser pump arrays that eliminate the weakness of the facet altogether by using kilowatt-capable vertical-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VCSELs), which use a distributed mirror, effectively decoupling the feedback mirror from the output window. When compa ...

  7. 2-D Optical Preamplifier Pixel Arrays For Near Photon-Counting Flash Ladar Receivers

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06013

    Aerius Photonics proposes to build, test, and deliver a 2-D Optical-Preamplifier Pixel Array (OPPA) to provide near photon-counting imaging Flash Ladar receiver sensitivity with linear-mode operation, full pulse shape discrimination, superior countermeasure immunity, and distinct advantages that improve target discrimination. The approach leverages the Phase I successful demonstration of 32x32 arr ...

  8. High-Gain, Wavelength-Agile Compact Coherent and Direct-Detection Receiver for High-Bandwidth Laser Communications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA06019

    Aerius Photonics proposes a wavelength tunable, optically preamplified receiver called the MEMS Tunable Vertical Cavity Amplified Detector (MT-VCAD). The MT-VCAD is a compact hybrid semiconductor chip device that utilizes an integrated MEMS mirror in conjunction with an amplifying semiconductor resonant cavity and a hybrid PIN detector to selectively amplify and detect different wavelengths of lig ...

  9. Hybrid Direct-Detect and Coherent Flash Ladar Receivers for Enhanced Sensitivity and Target Discrimination

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: MDA07032

    Aerius is proposing the extension of our demonstrated 1064 nm imaging Flash Ladar optical preamplifier pixel arrays (OPPAs) toward the develop and implementation of a hybrid coherent and direct-detection Ladar receiver for greatly enhanced detection sensitivity, target tracking and target discrimination. The OPPA consists of a 2-D array of Vertical-Cavity Semiconductor Optical Amplifiers (VCSOAs) ...

  10. Nano-Enabled Broadband Infrared Anti-Reflection Coatings

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: MDA07001

    In this program, Agiltron and the group of Professor D. W. Wang at Boston College propose a novel nano-porous coating for next generation MDA IR anti-reflection (AR) coatings for detectors and optics. The collaborative research leverages recent progress in nano-material development at Boston College, and Agiltron’s recently developed nano-coating processes. The proposed IR AR coatings will posse ...
