The Award database is continually updated throughout the year. As a result, data for the given year is not complete until April of the following year. Annual Reports data is a snapshot of agency reported information for that year and hence might look different from the live data in the Awards Information charts.

  1. Use of the halophyte Sarcocornia utahensis as a phytoremediation strategy for the amelioration of saline-sodic impacted soils...

    SBC: BLUE MOON BULBS LLP            Topic: N/A

    The environmental impacts of coal bed methane development (CBM) in Montana and the Rocky Mountain States are well documented. CBM exploration is expanding rapidly with the nation's focus on energy independence and the relative ease of extraction. Extraction of CBM necessitates pumping large volumes of often saline discharge waters to the surface. The impacts of those waters include: reductions in ...

  2. Ridge Waveguide Structures in Magnesium-Doped Lithium Niobate

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: T401

    In this NASA Phase I STTR effort, the feasibility of fabricating isolated ridge waveguides in 5% magnesium-doped lithium niobate (5% MgO:LN) will be established. Ridge waveguides in MgO:LN will significantly improve the power handling and conversion efficiency, increase photonic component integration, and be well suited to space based applications. The key innovation in this effort is to combine ...

  3. Fabrication of Advanced Waveguide Structures for Efficient Violet and Near-UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR Phase I effort will establish the feasibility of fabricating advanced waveguide structures in potassium titanyl phosphate (KTP) capable of efficiently generating 25 to 40 mW of frequency converted light in the 395 to 480 nm. The key innovation in this effort is to utilize KTP waveguides in a single-pass frequency doubling device to efficiently produce the desired laser wavelengths and po ...

  5. Electro-Optic Tunable Laser Sensor

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: S111

    This Small Business Innovation Research Phase I project will develop a compact, rugged, rapidly and widely tunable laser based on a quantum cascade diode laser at mid-infrared wavelengths. The key innovation in this effort is the use of an engineered electro-optic tuning element in an external cavity laser to provide control of the laser wavelength through an applied voltage. AdvR has previously ...

  6. High Efficiency Up conversion Single-Photon-Detector for 1550 nm Signal

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N/A

    This NIST Phase II SBIR effort will two low noise single photon detectors using MgO doped LiNbO3 (LN) periodically poled waveguides and a 980nm (or similar appropriate wavelength) pump to up convert 1550nm photons to 600nm to allow for detection by photomultiplier tube (PMT). The key innovation is using low noise periodically poled waveguides with a long wavelength (1800nm) pump leading to higher ...

  7. Periodically Poled Materials for UV Generation

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: A09AT008

    Army quantum information researchers have an immediate need for improved stable, narrowband violet and UV laser sources with 10–100 mW output and 10 MHz–10 GHz tuning. These sources are required for numerous ion and atom qubits functions including photoionization, Doppler cooling, state initialization, and detection. The cost and complexity of currently available UV lasers hampers current ef ...

  8. Adaptive Distributed Aperture Radar Mainlobe Jammer Suppression

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07037

    Current monostatic radar systems suffer fine tracking and discrimination performance degradation when encountering mainlobe jammers deployed within a reentry complex. As a result our forces may be vulnerable to attack. During Phase I, we have developed di

  9. Development of Digital Receiver/Exciters for Missile Defense Radars

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA06032

    This proposal will address the development of a digital receiver and exciter (DREX) technology for next-generation scalable missile-defense radar. A DREX is currently being specified at the sub-array level to feed an analog tile or panel subarray. This al

  10. Coherent Distributed Aperture Enabled Active Electronically Steered Array (CDA-AESA)

    SBC: APPLIED RADAR, INC.            Topic: MDA07T011

    Missile threats faced by our country are constantly increasing in lethality. The weapon used to counter such missiles is the kinetic interceptor. To work effectively, the reentry vehicle (RV) location must be precisely known. Confusing objects within the reentry complex make the key discrimination process very difficult. Coherent distributed aperture (CDA) radar represents an important advance in ...
