  1. 10G Multi-Channel Tunable Transmitter Array for Avionic Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: N08T009

    Avionic platforms pose stringent requirements on the size, weight and power consumption of optical components as well as wider temperature operating range (-40 to 100°C) requirements. In order to meet these needs, monolithic integration offers a solution by enabling high speed (10G) multi-channel tunable transmitters that can be packaged in an extremely compact form factor, lowering costs, and pr ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. A Novel Approach to Impregnating Structural Resin into Carbon Nanotube (CNT) Assemblies to Yield Ultrahigh-Loaded Polymer Nanocomposites


    The primary objective of this program is the investigation of new approaches to achieve well-dispersed ultrahigh loading of carbon nanotubes (CNTs) in structural resins for advanced composites. “Well-dispersed” means CNTs that are optimally dispersed for achieving desired properties like strength, modulus, toughness, and thermal conductivity, rather than uniformly dispersed CNTs. Phase I will ...

  4. A Thin Layer Approach to Highly Mobile Ad Hoc Networks


    Today’s warfare is network centric and relies on efficient communications on the move. To support these requirements, wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) have received a lot of attention because of self deployment and reconfiguration properties. Unfortunately, wireless networks in mobile environments face formidable challenges – from radio propagation effects to external jamming, path bre ...

  5. Ad Hoc Wireless Network for Rapidly Moving Disadvantaged Users

    SBC: MUSHROOM NETWORKS, INC.            Topic: N08T032

    Mushroom Networks Inc. with collaboration of CalIT2 from University of California, San Diego (UCSD) is proposing to design, simulate, and implement a multi-hop wireless networking architecture with portable battery powered radios with limited transmission power capabilities. The architecture will be specifically optimized to deliver a text-based chat service, and when possible a voice-based Push-T ...

  6. 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 ...

  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. 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 ...

  9. Biometrics in the Maritime Domain

    SBC: SECURICS, INC.            Topic: N07T034

    Biometrics in moving maritime environments presents some unique challenges. Even if the naval shipboard sensor is in a complex gimbaled mount for stabilization, the inherent motion of the smaller craft in which the subjects of interest are located means the system must deal with motion, potentially significant motion. The proposed work, will build on the success of Phase 1 to develop a system us ...

  10. Bistatic High Range Resolution Radar Image Processing


    Technology Service Corporation (TSC) and our academic partner Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute (RPI) present an innovative approach to radar imaging of ships and other maritime targets that exploits monostatic, bistatic and multistatic wideband radar signals. The new signal processing technique is applied to the problem of imaging maritime targets using fixed-site surface surveillance radars, to i ...
