  1. High Performance Point Source LEDs

    SBC: ATEC, Inc.            Topic: MDA04030

    This project addresses the need for high performance IR LEDs for scene generation in hardware-in-the-loop facilities and for the in situ calibration of IR optics in seekers and reconnaissance satellites. The Ioffe Institute has developed leading technologies to produce LEDs with high output, low operating voltage, and low thermal resistance. These solid-state devices are capable of simulating hi ...

  2. Wideband Digital Beamforming Processor for Multi-Beam Phased Array

    SBC: Applied Radar, Inc.            Topic: MDA05034

    The objective of the proposed effort is to develop a digital beamforming (DBF) processor capable of generating multiple simultaneous receive beams with a wide (>500 MHz) instantaneous bandwidth (IBW). This would offer a significant improvement over a similar DBF processor with 15 MHz IBW that Applied Radar, Inc. previously developed for AFRL. The wide bandwidth is necessary for a number of high-re ...

  3. High-Power Broadband Multiple-Beam Klystron Circuit Development

    SBC: BEAM-WAVE RESEARCH INC            Topic: MDA04138

    The proposed program is for the development of a fundamental-mode S-band multiple-beam klystron (MBK) circuit and collector compatible with an eighteen-beam electron gun presently under development. The feasibility of the circuit to operate as a broadband high-power amplifying component when used in conjunction with the eighteen-beam gun (41.6 A at 42 kV) has been conclusively establish under the ...

  4. Radiation Hardened SLD and IOC Components for Fiber Optic Gyros

    SBC: COVEGA, INC.            Topic: MDA05028

    The intent of this project is to improve the radiation hardness of the optical light source and the LiNbO3 integrated optical chip (IOC) to meet the fiber optic gyro (FOG) system objectives for scale factor error (long-term): < 10 ppm and bias drift stability: < 0.001 deg/hr under a total dose: > 300 kRads (Si). This will be accomplished by developing superluminescent LED (SLD) broadband sources ...

  5. Development of Dilute Nitride SL Technology for VLWIR Detectors

    SBC: Epitaxial Technologies, LLC            Topic: MDA06T011

    Epitaxial Technologies' overall objective is to develop innovative detector technologies that can be used to produce enhanced quantum efficiency and high detectivity VLWIR sensors that can operate at high temperatures. The goal of Phase I will be to investigate dilute nitride strain layer superlattice material structures that are capable of enhanced gain and detectivity and then grow and fabricate ...

  6. NOAA Weather Radio (NWR) "Smart Receiver"

    SBC: Hy-Tek, Ltd.            Topic: 837

    There is a critical need for a high performance receiver that knows where it is, knows where the NWR transmitting stations are, tunes itself to the local NWR station (especially in a mobile environment), provides weather and warnings in both audio and text, requires little-to-no setup and can communicate with other devices such as external alarms and network systems that can better warn its owner ...

  7. High-Frequency MIMO Tracking Radar Transceiver for Ballistic Missile Defense

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA05034

    We propose a high-frequency (HF) band multiple-input, multiple-output (MIMO) radar with distributed transmitter and receivers. The system will support both Line-of-Sight (LOS) and Over-the-Horizon (OTH) modes. The core of the transceiver is a simple correlation receiver which processes multiple waveforms and generates unified target reports. The transceiver will be implemented on a compact softwar ...

  8. Approach to Enhancing Target Discrimination via 3D Visualization without 3D Glasses

    SBC: INTELLIGENT AUTOMATION, INC.            Topic: MDA05T008

    Intelligent Automation, Inc. (IAI) and Arizona State University (ASU) present a systematic approach to stereo image creation, depth estimation, free-viewpoint 3D visualization, and 3D target modeling and visualization. The approach consists of automatic feature point extraction, correspondence and tracking, and stereo image generation from uncalibrated cameras. Additional postprocessing algorithms ...

  9. IGC and Estimation With Theta-D and Higher Order Sliding Mode Techniques

    SBC: IST-Rolla            Topic: MDA05048

    A recently developed nonlinear controller called theta-D and the Higher Order Sliding Mode (HOSM) control are the centerpiece around which an Integrated Guidance and Control (IGC) scheme and a nonlinear filter technique are built to enhance the lethality of hit-to-kill interceptors and offer a means to increase the maneuver ratio advantage. This proposal includes the development of a 6DOF based I ...

  10. Interband Cascade Infrared Light Emitting Diodes for IR Scene Simulation

    SBC: Maxion Technologies, Inc.            Topic: MDA05T020

    Maxion Technologies, in collaboration with a research team at The State University of New York at Stony Brook, will adapt its interband cascade (IC) laser technology to create IR light-emitting-diode (LED) arrays of size 128 x 128 that emit in the 3-5-micron spectral region and meet necessary array performance requirements for IR scene projection. IC-based arrays of LEDs will provide point and ext ...
