  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 Novel Single Sideband Suppressed-Carrier (SSB-SC) Technique for High Dynamic Range Analog Applications

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N05T008

    A novel technique for achieving SSB-SC is proposed for achieving high dynamic range in analog applications. The technique employs an intracavity modulator together with an intracavity filter that blocks the modulation sidebands from being re-circulated. Spurious-free dynamic ranges (SFDR) exceeding 120 dB/Hz2/3 is achieved using this novel technique. Development of a prototype photonics circuit ...

  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. Aerogel Spray Thermal Barrier

    SBC: OCELLUS, INC.            Topic: N05T015

    A need exists for new weapon types that can rapidly strike targets around the globe within minutes. One current focus is the development of hypersonic strike weapons. Hypersonic weapons will have increased effectiveness, decreased time to target, and increased range. However, hypersonic projectiles will experience significant aerothermic heating necessitating thermal protection. This key techn ...

  5. 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 ...

  6. 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 Òaware of ...

  7. Automated RF Measurement Module (ARMM)

    SBC: KAB LABORATORIES INC.            Topic: N05T033

    Technological advances in both military and commercial communications have resulted in increasingly complex signal waveforms that cannot be processed using existing algorithms. As a result, cryptologic technicians and analysts often must manually derive a signal's features and match those features to an emitter class. Due to the large volumes of collected data that must be sorted through, it is ...

  8. Carbon Nanofiber Supercapacitors for Grid Scale Energy Storage

    SBC: Jema Science, Inc            Topic: N11AT028

    Jema Science Inc teams up with Dr. Yuegang Zhang"s group at Molecular Foundray of Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory (LBNL) to propose an electrochemical capacitor (supercapacitor) energy storage concept based on low-cost electrospun carbon nanofibers. We take advantage of extremely low-cost of electrospinning technology coupled with our research on metal oxide nanomaterials to produce state-of ...

  9. Clutter Removal and Substantially Improved Submarine and Mine Detection Through Affordable

    SBC: Brainlike, Inc.            Topic: N05T025

    Magnetic detection of submarines, mines and other objects of interest has continued to improve in both sensitivity of the sensors and reduction in the complexity and cost of sensor devices. Sensors alone, regardless of how far science is able to improve their abilities, will not solve the problem. The Navy will have to find processing solutions capable of quickly and cost-effectively highlightin ...

  10. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT002

    Over-The-Horizon (OTH) radar plays a crucial role in naval situational awareness and the ultimate safety of the naval warfighter and navy assets. Traditionally, OTH detection has been enabled by large land based radars exploiting the interaction of high frequency (HF) radio waves with the ionosphere, but this method is susceptible to instabilities in propagation and the limitations of HF systems. ...
