  1. SAA Targeted Advanced Radar Technology (START)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: AF093133

    Colorado Engineering Inc. (CEI), with its teammate, Ball Aerospace, proposes to leverage its collective expertise with phased array antenna design, advanced processing architectures, and radar signal processing algorithms to research, identify, and mature technologies that will improve the cost, size, weight, and power consumption of radar systems supporting Sense and Avoid (SAA) systems. This ef ...

  2. High-Density, Reconfigurable Optical Routing Interconnects

    SBC: Macro-vision Communications,            Topic: N/A

    High-density reconfigurable optical routing interconnect is introduced in this SBIR program for optical signal processing. This structure is based on three key features: 1) Polarization manipulation using 2-D spatial light modulators; 2) polarization complementary geometry; and 3) the throw-away undesired optical energies design. The polarization manipulation provides the basis for "no-moving" par ...

  3. Power Generation and Storage for Micro Aerial Vehicles (MAV)

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD09EP2

    Micro Air Vehicles (MAV) have emerged as a critical need for the U.S. Air Force. MAVs are envisioned to conduct a variety of indoor and outdoor reconnaissance missions and must be highly mobile and man-portable. Furthermore, many of the envisioned missions for MAVs require significant endurance. Unfortunately, current state-of-the-art lithium-ion batteries are not capable of providing sufficient e ...

  4. Solid State Infrared Flare

    SBC: Princeton Optronics            Topic: A09004

    We propose a solid-state IR flare solid-state design based on the VCSEL (Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser) technology, emitting>315W total power around 808nm as a replacement of the illuminant candle which Army currently uses. The requirements in terms of input electrical power, cooling, weight and size satisfy the Army needs. VCSELs are clearly a superior choice for this application because ...

  5. Single Crystal Relaxor-Based Ferroelectrics Offer a Quantum

    SBC: TETRAD CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    The goal of this program is to apply recent advancements in the growth of piezoelectric single crystal materials to build ultrasound transducers with very broad bandwidth, which can improve and simplify ultrasound imaging for combat casualty care. Relaxor-based ferroelectric materials of PZN-PT and PMN-PT have been shown to have coupling factors for some modes of over 90%. Transducer modelin ...

  6. HITS: Hit and Instrumentation Telemetry System

    SBC: SEMQUEST, INC.            Topic: MDA08008

    A hit grid system that sends telemetry from optoelectromechanical sensors on a test target, offers high quality information which cannot be easily duplicated using other techniques. When such a system can also incorporate other target sensor data into the telemetry stream while improving size, weight, power, and bandwidth, the value is increased. Additionally, the development of an innovative so ...

  7. Ion Beam Sputtered Coatings for Large Aperture, High-Energy Laser Optics

    SBC: Precision Photonics Corporation            Topic: MDA09039

    Large diameter optics have numerous challenges, including fabrication, surface figure, weight, transport, mounting, materials choice, and thermal concerns. High Energy Laser applications bring additional challenging parameters to the mix, such as surface micro-roughness, laser damage threshold, coating adhesion, and coating thermal conductivity. The developments in this proposal will result in a ...

  8. Track Correlation

    SBC: SciTec, Inc.            Topic: MDA09027

    The key to successful track correlation, and early intercept, is to discriminate between observations of multiple threats, eliminate false tracks, and characterize each threat prior to ingestion of angles-angles data into a tracking filter framework. SciTec"s novel approach to this challenge is to extract features that are available only during the boost phase, fuse these features with track data ...

  9. Resource Optimization for Battle Management

    SBC: Numerica Corporation            Topic: MDA09026

    The U.S. DoD has made ballistic missile defense a top priority. In response, MDA is developing a layered ballistic missile defense system (BMDS). A key requirement for this system is a global battle manager that efficiently and effectively coordinates the actions of the component sensors and weapon systems, and rapidly provides operators with engagement solutions. This is a significant challenge b ...

  10. Super High Brightness Cold Cathode Field Emitter for Flat Panel Display Applications

    SBC: Skion Corp.            Topic: N/A

    SKION has found the cesiated amorphous diamond/Si structure which demonstrated the 7-10 V/micron turn-on voltage on planar geometry. Negative electron affinity property of the diamond surface had been reported previously. However, this exceptional super-high brightness electron emission behavior is believed to be a new mechanism due to the composite structure of cesium, oxygen and carbon. The high ...
