  1. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  2. Power-Dense Electrostatic Rotating Machines

    SBC: C-Motive Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N19AT007

    Next-generation naval ships will require electric machinery with at least 50% greater power density than is available today. Such machines must deliver up to 10s of MW at 100-200 rpm with very high energy efficiency, extremely low noise signature, and reasonable cost. Electrostatic machine technology is often overlooked but is perfectly suited to achieving these goals. C-Motive Technologies propos ...

  3. Image Enhancement and Machine Learning for Improving Man-Portable Targeting Systems

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: N172102

    Modern DoD applications are benefiting from the proliferation of EO/IR sensor technology. As imagers become cheaper and smaller, they are being more widely deployed for a variety of scenarios. This trend is exemplified by the Navys Future Targeting System (FTS), which will provide laser designation, laser spot imaging, and some target location functions in a single 5.5-pound unit, replacing discre ...

  4. Active Imaging through Fog

    SBC: Blackmore Sensors and Analytics, Inc.            Topic: N18AT021

    For this Phase 1 Small Business Technology Transfer (STTR) project, Blackmore Sensors and Analytics and university partner Montana State University will investigate the use of coherent frequency modulated continuous wave (FMCW) ladar/lidar and digital holography techniques for improved performance of active imaging through fog. Coherent range, Doppler, and polarization selective digital holography ...

  5. Alternative Mixing Technologies for High-Energy, Solid Materials for Large Gas Generator Propellant

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N172141

    The Phase I project objective is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility for use of an alternative process for mixing high-energy solid propellant materials that are used for gas generators in U.S. Navy strategic missile post-boost propulsion systems, other large missiles, and launch vehicles. In addition, the advanced mixing technology does not use impellers for mixing. The process selected fo ...

  6. Development and Assessment of No-Impeller, No-Blade Propellant Mixing Equipment and Procedures

    SBC: Highland Point, Inc.            Topic: N172141

    The Phase I effort provides an evaluation of variations of the no-impeller, no-blade propellant mixing approach. The assessment of this technology, specific trade studies of the incorporation of the technology into the propellant manufacturing process, and the accompanying laboratory evaluations demonstrate the feasibility of using this technology to replace the legacy methods for producing substa ...

  7. Multicore Fiber Optic Package Optical Subassembly for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182101

    In this SBIR effort we will develop a balanced detection analog photonic link consisting of a DFB laser, a dual-output high-speed, low-Vp mach-zehnder modulator (MZM) and a high-power, high-linearity balanced photodetector (BPD) using a dual-core, single mode, multicore fiber (MCF) that is supplied by our subcontractor, OFS. We will design, fabricate and characterize (phase I) the MZM and the BPD, ...

  8. Photonic Integrated Circuit Reliability

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N182108

    Photonic integration, and specifically silicon photonics, has emerged as one of the leading solutions for maintaining or improving the performance of optical systems while addressing the requirements related to size, weight, and power (SWaP). Photonic integrated circuits (PICs), which integrate multiple photonic elements onto a single chip, are specifically suited to providing the complexity and f ...

  9. Foreign Like Weapon Production Capability

    SBC: McNally Industries, LLC            Topic: SOCOM172003

    The proposed Phase I effort is to complete a feasibility review of all innovative technology options that can be implemented in Phase II in order to evaluate, reverse engineer, reengineer, design, draft, fabricate, machine, coat, assemble and test facsimiles of foreign like weapons described in the topic announcement. McNally's solution is based on our years of experience in reverse engineering s ...

  10. ATCOM SHARP Box for Real-Time Turbulence Mitigation

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: NASAA402

    When imaging over long distances, atmospheric turbulence between the camera and subject degrades the collected data limiting the effective resolution, regardless of the quality of the optic and sensor used. This reduction in image quality can have serious impacts on the ability to carry out missions by reducing situational awareness and preventing target identification. EM Photonics has been worki ...
