  1. Silicon based Millimeter-Wave (MMW) sparse array radiometer receiver for photonic processing

    SBC: DGNSS Solutions, LLC            Topic: SB113003

    The proposed innovation adopts a hybrid electro-optical approach, which combines the best of the electronic and photonic approaches to achieve high sensitivity, high inter-channel stability, and large-scale integration for an integrated mm-wave receiver. Silicon photonics provides the ideal platform for this as it enables the up-conversion of the mm-wave signals from each pixel to telecommunicatio ...

  2. Controlled Burn Using Nanoinfused Insensitive Solid Propellant

    SBC: Cornerstone Research Group, Incorporated            Topic: SB113004

    Future missile systems will need to be faster, more precise, impact a larger theater of operation, and exhibit improved safety for friendly combatants. There are many technology elements that contribute to the desired level of control. In solid propellants, nanoparticle additives theoretically offer attractive improvements to specific impulse, burn rate, and combustion efficiency which can transla ...

  3. IM Compliant High Pressure Green Propellant (HPGP) DACS

    SBC: Systima Technologies, Inc.            Topic: SB113004

    Systima is developing an IM compliant High Performance Green Propellant (HPGP) DACS thruster that operates with a novel non-toxic monopropellant. The monopropellant has a 30% higher density-specific impulse compared to hydrazine, insensitive/ not a detonation hazard, and is commercially available off-the-shelf. In Phase I Systima will focus on development of the propellant feed and injection sys ...

  4. Controlling Antibiotic Resistant or Highly Virulent Pathogens Through Plasmid Curing

    SBC: UES, Inc.            Topic: SB122001

    Group II introns are a novel class of catalytic RNA molecule that are capable of site specific insertion into DNA targets. This property can be reengineered to facilitate site specific DNA integration into a wide range of DNA targets. We intend to exploit this property of group II introns to effect plasmid curing by disrupting critical sequences or proteins responsible for plasmid replication/sp ...

  5. Innovative Passivation to Increase the Power at Which Laser Diode Fails

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB122005

    nLight proposes to suppress the key remaining output power extraction limiter COMD failure mechanism by passivating the cleaved facet of laser diodes with high bandgap semiconductor layers that is epitaxially grown in an atomically conformal manner at low temperature and in ultra-high vacuum.

  6. Ultra-Bright Diode Laser Emitters for Pumping High-Power Fiber Amplifiers

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB122006

    nLight proposes a novel semiconductor laser device operating at ~976 nm with a spatially single mode laser that is separately addressable to generate a few hundred milliwatts of power and then subsequently amplified to>10 watts with a separate electrical contact in a larger gain area while preserving the beam quality resulting in>1000 MW/cm2-Sr. We expect electrical-to-optical power conversion ef ...

  7. Design of Acoustic Metamaterials for Passive Hearing Protector

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: SB103006

    We propose to develop new acoustic metamaterials (AMMs) using locally resonant regimented structures, suitable for application in Hearing Protector Devices (HPDs), that will act as frequency selective acoustic filter for hearing protection. Our computational simulations conducted in phase I project have demonstrated that significant acoustic attenuation can be achieved in desired frequency ranges ...

  8. Contact Lens See-Through Head Worn Display

    SBC: Innovega Inc.            Topic: SB103003

    This Phase II SBIR project will develop a full color, 720P, wide field of view (90), see-through head mounted display (HMD) prototype based on Innovegas eyeborne optic concept. This new eyewear architecture is a radical departure from traditional near eye displays. Rather than presenting the eye with collimated rays of light that appear to originate from a distant source, the performance of the ...

  9. Improvements to Sense and Avoid (SAA) Systems for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS)

    SBC: DEFENSE ENGINEERING CORPORATION            Topic: AF081069

    Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) across the services need the capability to operate routinely in civil airspace like manned aircraft. Currently, the lack of Sense and Avoid (SAA) technology is the largest obstacle to realizing this capability. The SAA system should autonomously sense air traffic and direct the RPA to avoid the traffic in the same manner as a human pilot. The preceding program de ...
