  3. Resonant Scan Lens for Scanning Beam LIDAR

    SBC: z-senz LLC            Topic: 90501

    The objective of this Phase II project is to research, develop, and commercialize a resonant scan lens (RSL) for use in a resonant light detection and ranging (R-LIDAR) distance sensor. R-LIDAR uses a resonant optomechanical system to generate a beam scan. While resonant optomechanical systems produce high-speed and large field-of-view (FOV) scans from a miniature form factor, the beam scans lack ...

  6. Passive Inter Modulationfor Corrosion Assessment and Localization (PIMCAL)

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15025

    It is well documented that corrosion, and many other non-perfections of metal structures, when exposed to multi-tone radio-frequency (RF) emissions exhibit Passive Inter Modulation (PIM) emissions. PIM establishes fundamental limits of performance for wireless sensor, communication, radar, and navigation systems that operate in high output power environments. Compounding the PIM problem is the lar ...

  7. AiMNET: User-Configurable Autonomous Establishing and Management of Secure Networks

    SBC: Intelligent Automation, Inc.            Topic: MDA15011

    "Modeling and Simulation (M&S) tools play a key role to assess BMDS operational performance. However, current simulation missions require extensive participation of human testers/operators to configure the network components and maintain the network topology to meet the network architecture and security constraint. This drives up cost and hinders the evaluation and testing process, and also preven ...
