  1. 2-Dimensional Phase Controlled Coherent VCSEL Arrays for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N11AT024

    Aerius Photonics and the University of Illinois propose to develop a large two-dimensional coherently coupled Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) array that will enable phase controlled operation, providing a building block for electronic steering of optical beam outputs with no mechanical parts. In Phase I, the program team will design the array including epitaxial layers, VCSEL array ...

  2. A Human-Centric Architecture for Net-Centric Operations


    To be effective, modern military command and control requires an enormous amount of communication, coordination, and collaboration among the various forces, services, and coalition partners involved. Many tools have been developed or adopted from industry to meet this need; however, these same tools have significant limitations, the most important being that none of the technologies are "aware of" ...

  3. Adaptable Sensor Processing for Passive Targets Using Neuro

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    Work to be performed in this program is based upon years of innovative technology development invested by personnel at Nova Research. Techniques proposed here are patterned after biological principles which, when applied to finding targets which are moving against highly cluttered infrared backgrounds, will be shown to exhibit remarkable performance. Sensor and data fusion techniques may ...

  4. Adaptive Space-Time Radar Techniques and Waveforms

    SBC: CHIRP CORP.            Topic: N04T007

    Energy-on-target is maximized in optics and ocean acoustics by transmitting a time-reversed (spectral phase conjugated) version of received data at each array element or subarray. This process uses an unknown propagation channel as its own space-time matched filter to implement a RAKE receiver at the target location. (A RAKE receiver passes data through a filter that is matched to the channel im ...

  5. Advanced EO sensor for multi-mission USN/USMC UAVs

    SBC: Irvine Sensors Corporation            Topic: N03T018

    The objective of the Phase II program is to design, build and test a prototype ISR Sensor Package through proof-of-concept demonstrations, to support littoral-zone warfare mission products; detection and characterization of low-contrast targets; and provide accurate geo-location of the products. The ISC team's ISR concept is based upon a set of requirements to completely satisfy this objective. ...

  6. Advanced Flywheel Energy Storage for Pulsed Power Applications

    SBC: CALNETIX            Topic: N04T013

    Existing battery based energy storage systems are not suited for short duration, high cycle life, deep discharge, and small required size applications. Ultra/super capacitors (UC) are limited by some of the same issues as batteries, i.e. cycle life limitations, disposal, and continue to remain at a much higher cost than batteries. Flywheels can cost effectively fill the short duration, high cycl ...

  7. Advanced-Architecture Compressor/Expanders for Energy Storage Applications

    SBC: Bright Energy Storage Technologies, LLP            Topic: N11AT028

    Bright Energy Storage Technologies and the Engines and Energy Conversion Laboratory at Colorado State University propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a custom reversible compressor design for use in compressed air energy storage systems. The design proposed combines a very lightweight rotary compressor design with extremely high flow volumes, allowing a highly efficient device at extremely lo ...

  8. Advanced EO sensor for multi-mission USN/USMC UAVs

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N03T018

    A multi-channel time series imaging system is being designed, constructed and evaluated for providing unique spectral polarimetric imaging data for ONR programs that are developing advanced algorithms for littoral warfare ISR. Twelve channels of data are collected simultaneously from an aircraft in a temporal imaging mode. The design is based on the success of the Airborne Remote Optical Spotlig ...

  9. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  10. Automated Path and Mission Planning for Aerial Platforms under Dynamic Conditions and Constraints

    SBC: Systems Technology, Inc.            Topic: N04T003

    The proposal herein merges two novel and different algorithms for unmanned platform dynamic path-planning in obstacle fields. The first employs a recently published technique, Focused Dynamic Programming [1], which offers the benefits of both the LAO* algorithm [2] (LAO* subsumes Dijkstra's algorithm) and the Prioritized Sweeping algorithm [3]. Focused Dynamic Programming uses heuristics to limit ...
