  1. Development of Low Dark Current Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) Devices for Next Generation Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA03T002

    Next generation EO/IR sensors are needed for a variety of Military Systems Applications. These include UV, Visible, NIR, SWIR, MWIR and LWIR bands. Magnolia as part of the proposed Phase II STTR Program plans to design, model and develop Strained Layer Superlattice (SLS) based detector array for next generation multicolor IR imaging applications. The key components of the Program will include eva ...

  2. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    In the current SBIR program, AlphaSense aimed at developing a novel, handheld, non-destructive sensor to evaluate the integrity of Naval Advanced Amorphous Coatings (NAAC) in real time. In phase I, we have proven the feasibility of using the cavity perturbation technique to detect different types of defects present in thermal-sprayed testing coupons. Specifically, we optimized the sensor probe des ...

  3. Design and Development of High Performance UV Imaging Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Magnolia Optical Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB093011

    Magnolia proposes to develop and demonstrate small unit cell APD array with high gain for high resolution imaging in the ultraviolet (UV) band. We will use MOCVD process to demonstrate GaN/AlGaN based APD arrays on lattice matched substrates with very low dark current and high avalanche gain. Models will be developed to understand characteristics of small pixel size UV detectors and mechanisms for ...

  4. Digital Eddy Current Tomography for Submarine Pressure Hull Inspection Through the Coating

    SBC: Jentek Sensors, Inc.            Topic: SB091011

    A capability to inspect submarine pressure hulls through the special hull treatment could result in significant savings in maintenance costs and improvements in fleet readiness. This poses a challenge for conventional nondestructive evaluation (NDE) methods, as acoustic methods are defeated by the coating and others require access to the surface. This proposal focuses on evolving MWM-MR-Array (M ...

  5. Automated Collaboration Collection&Relationship Understanding Environment

    SBC: APTIMA, INC.            Topic: SB093007

    Operations centers for tactical military activities, incident response, and other domains all involve multiple teams of individuals interacting with people and systems within and outside of their organization to enable continuous mission success. In these organizations, effective coordination and collaboration is critical. To improve collaboration, an end-to-end sensor and analysis technology is n ...

  6. Transparent Oxynitride Coatings for High Speed Missiles Application

    SBC: SURMET, CORP.            Topic: SB031001

    The oxynitride group of coatings, based on ternary phase diagram of silicon, carbon and nitrogen with the addition of oxygen, also known as SiCON, has potential for use as hard and durable coatings for high speed missile windows and domes. During the Phase I effort, Surmet successfully demonstrated the feasibility of depositing durable coatings of Si, SiN, SiC and SiCON using its innovative pla ...

  7. Video Analysis for Nighttime Surveillance and Situational Awareness

    SBC: Charles River Analytics, Inc.            Topic: ST031004

    Recent events in both Iraq and Afghanistan have demonstrated the need for credible and timely situational awareness on the ground. Of key importance is the ability to locate specific individuals of interest and to quickly provide that information to central command so that appropriate action can be taken. An automated video-based surveillance system for covert monitoring of a small area of interes ...

  8. Portable Terahertz Imaging System

    SBC: Spire Corporation            Topic: SB022038

    This Phase II SBIR proposal describes a development program aimed at designing and fabricating a terahertz quantum cascade (QC) laser from gallium arsenide-based epitaxial material grown by the metalorganic chemical vapor deposition (MOCVD) technique. Previously produced terahertz QC lasers were fabricated from the more complex indium phosphide-based materials, and were grown by molecular beam ep ...

  9. Rigorous Analysis and Design of Nano-Photonic Devices using a Novel Hardware Approach

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB031016

    A nearly universal trend in modern technology is integrating systems, and their associated devices, on decreasingly smaller scales. Examples range from complete telecommunication systems on a chip to implantable medical devices smaller than human cells. The majority of these devices apply hybrid designs that integrate on a commensurate scale electronics with active and passive optical components. ...

  10. A Rubust System for Automated Video-Based Vehicle Recognition

    SBC: ALPHATECH, INC.            Topic: SB031015

    We propose an end-to-end video-based system for online class recognition of moving vehicles observed by a passive stationary camera. SAVOR (or System for Automated Video-based Object Recognition) continuously detects, tracks, and classifies vehicles within the camera's field of view in real time, additionally providing a live operator display and archiving data and results for later analysis. To o ...
