  1. Protective Helmet Suspension and Retention System

    SBC: Vivonics, Inc.            Topic: N142085

    The Marine Corps is preparing to field the new Enhanced Combat Helmet (ECH) which replaces the Advanced Combat Helmet (ACH). The ECH has an updated shell made of lightweight polyethylene material that provides a higher degree of protection than Kevlar used in ACH, but the suspension and retention system have not been updated to account for the increased amount of ballistic energy that these improv ...

  2. 2.5-Ton Foldable Litter

    SBC: Physical Sciences Inc.            Topic: N142089

    PSI and ABS are teaming together again to apply their lightweight deployable litter technology to the challenge of high-g loading of the transported Marine. The PSI and ABS Principal Investigators have already collaborated on the successful development of a collapsible/deployable litter that is half as heavy as the current state of the art and folds into half the volume. In addition to meeting the ...

  5. 100-W Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) Bars and 1-kW QCL Stacks

    SBC: TeraDiode, Inc.            Topic: N142093

    There is a compelling need for compact high brightness mid-wavelength infrared (MWIR) lasers. Applications of such sources include spectroscopic detection of the fingerprint of molecular absorptions, illumination, electronic warfare (EW), and infrared countermeasure (IRCM) systems in response to increasingly sophisticated seeker technologies and increased threat ranges. Todays state-of-the-art hig ...

  6. High-Power Mid-Infrared Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Continuous-Wave Output Power Exceeding 100W

    SBC: EOS Photonics            Topic: N142093

    The objective of the present program is to develop a lambda ~ 4.6 microns source based on a stack of QCL bars with unprecedented power level exceeding 100 Watts while maintaining good beam quality. The solution proposed needs to be (1) compatible with beam combining solutions and (2) scalable to the kilowatt level. Eos Photonics proposes to leverage its experience building, cooling and packaging ...

  7. Ruggedized, Ultra-Compact, High Dynamic Range, Dual-Output Wideband Electro-Optic Modulator

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N142100

    In this SBIR effort we will develop and analyze (Phase I) a new design and packaging approach for an ultra-compact, dual-output wideband Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) for low noise figure (NF) and high dynamic range radio-frequency (RF) photonic link applications. We will provide (Phase I) experimental proof-of-concept of the proposed device by tailoring our current 100GHz MZM product. In Phase II, ...

  8. FIXATE: FIXational Automatic Target Extraction

    SBC: Scientific Systems Company Inc.            Topic: N14AT008

    During a mission naval UAS collect large volumes of data but only sub-sections of this data contain information relevant to the mission. In order to find the important information analysts must sift through ALL of the data. FIXATE is a biomimmetic object classification system to automatically pre-process the data and cue the operator to sections of data that are likely to contain important informa ...
