  1. Accelerated Burn-In Process for High Power Quantum Cascade Lasers to Reduce Total Cost of Ownership

    SBC: Irglare, LLC            Topic: N20BT029

    The development of a burn-in process for high power MWIR and LWIR Quantum Cascade Lasers (QCLs) is proposed. The new burn-in process will be rooted in extensive statistical experimental data to be collected in Phase I and Phase II of this program. This will allow us to extract all the critical empirical parameters required for mean-time-to-failure (MTTF) projections for high power MWIR and LWIR de ...

  2. A Multidimensional Photonic Accelerator for Matrix Multiplications

    SBC: OMEGA PHOTONICS SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: A20BT004

    We propose a photonic matrix accelerator (PMA) using coherent mixing and multi-dimensional detection performing matrix multiplications for high-efficiency neural network processing. Recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) can be greatly attributed to the development in deep artificial neural networks (ANNs). Though ANNs are dominantly trained and deployed with digital computers, biological ...

  4. Neural Network Based Pedestrian Dead Reckoning Navigation

    SBC: Novateur Research Solutions, LLC            Topic: A20BT027

    This SBIR Phase I project will develop a prototype system for pedestrian dead reckoning navigation system. The proposed system is based on a novel deep neural network and does not require any pre-defined dynamic models. Hence, this system is significantly more robust to nonlinearities in the dynamic models than the traditional Kalman filter variants. The system is capable of handling uncertain and ...

  5. Rapid Multi-modal Communications

    SBC: NNData Corporation            Topic: HR001120S001917

    Virtual reality (VR) has long been touted as a new paradigm for interaction. Consumer grade virtual reality headsets now have sufficient resolution to read documents and a new wave of hand controllers can be used as virtual keyboards. With privacy protection and security a top concern for personal, business, and military applications, the design of VR hardware and systems is naturally conducive to ...

  6. Ubiquitous SSA for Space Vehicles

    SBC: Xenia Enterprises LLC            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Space is cluttered.  Commercial and military space systems must co-exist and as a fundamental pre-condition for the future use of space, attribution, conjunction avoidance, and a variety of military missions, space domain awareness is required.  Simple put, the Air Force and Space Force need to know what is in space and where it is going to be, and when it is going to be there.  A proven approa ...

  7. Performance Measurements for Electrocoat Primer and Powder Coatings

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: AF20CTCSO1

    Corrosion of Air Force aircraft and missiles is estimated to cost $5.7 billion per year and result in 2.1 million non-available hours.  The first line of defense and single most important factor in controlling corrosion of aircraft is the protective coating system.  Chromate containing primers used for aerospace are the largest single source of hexavalent chromium in the US DoD, but elimination ...
