  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. Engineered Betavoltaic Materials for Compact, Energy Dense, Battery Technologies

    SBC: Innovative Advanced Materials, Inc.            Topic: N191041

    Innovative Advanced Materials (IAM), Inc., founded by Dr. W. Alan Doolittle, proposes to demonstrate new betavoltaic fuel source innovations and to utilize recent materials advances (last two years) that facilitate a new geometry betavoltaic energy convertor that circumvents many of the previous power limiting bottlenecks. The proprietary IAM TJ LEG architecture will allow for: a) efficient use of ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. Enhanced Robustness and Reliability for Free-Space Optical Communication Links Using Spatial Diversity

    SBC: R-DEX Systems, Inc            Topic: N181027

    R-DEX Systems proposes to team with the University of Southern California to develop the Spatial-Diversity Communication Link (SD-Link), a free-space optical (FSO) communications system for reliable and high-capacity wireless communications. The proposed SD-Link will build on the team's previous published work in FSO communications using spatial diversity and the team's previous STTR collaboration ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Systematic Fatigue Test Spectrum Editing Using Wavelet Transformations

    SBC: GLOBAL TECHNOLOGY CONNECTION, INC.            Topic: N18BT029

    Global Technology Connection, Inc., in collaboration with its academic and industrial partners, proposes to develop a software tool that will incorporate systematic wavelet-analysis-based approach for addressing fatigue in a rotary H-60 helicopter (and aerospace applications in general). This fatigue spectrum editing tool will preserve fatigue damage and minimize testing times and costs as well as ...

  8. Safe Reserve Thermal Battery with Long Activated Life

    SBC: Binergy Scientific Inc.            Topic: N172139

    Thermal batteries are single discharge reserve batteries that provide very long shelf life, minimal self-discharge, wide storage temperature range, fast activation under sudden power demand, and also wide range of temperature operating conditions. Such unique properties among electrochemical power systems are provided with application of molten salt electrolyte, which is in solid form under normal ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
