  1. Compact Lightweight Freeform GRIN Optics for Small Arms Fire Control

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A19BT001

    Freeform GRIN optics will be developed for fire-control systems. In the Phase I effort, 1) a 36-mm F/4 freeform GRIN objective optic with a half field of view no less than 4 degrees, and 2) a 20-diopter freeform GRIN Alvarez optical pair will be designed, fabricated, and optimized for achromatic performance over the 390-nm to 700-nm spectral range. The lens performance will be assessed by measurin ...

  2. Integrity-enabling Generic Estimation Manager (iGEM)

    SBC: Qunav LLC            Topic: A19BT002

    To improve resiliency of positioning, navigation and timing (PNT) in GPS-degraded and GPS-denied environments, QuNav proposes to develop an integrity-enabling Generic Estimation Manager (iGEM). iGEM automatically (i.e., without on-line or off-line human intervention) and optimally combines all available navigation data and maintains solution continuity, availability and integrity. The sensor-agnos ...

  5. A Drop-In Non-Flammable Electrolyte for Fire-Resistant, High Performance Lithium-ion Batteries

    SBC: Nanotek Instruments, Inc.            Topic: A19BT016

    Recent incidents on Li-ion batteries (LIBs) have raised safety concerns for electric vehicles, cell phones, and many other battery-powered devices. The root cause arises from the flammable organic liquid electrolytes. However, a commercially viable non-flammable electrolyte (NFE) for high-rate LIBs has yet to be developed. The solution to these commercial mishaps lies in the development of an NFE ...

  10. Passive Millimeter-Wave Imaging Camera System Using Optical Up-Conversion in Sparse Array Configuration

    SBC: Novaa Ltd            Topic: A18BT017

    The objective of this proposal is to enable high-sensitivity, passive imaging system of natural mm-wave emissions, which can be used as standalone or fused with other imaging modality such as conventional IR imagery in degraded environments. This is achieved through a unique antenna integrated electro-optic (EO) modulator, where received mm-wave signals modulate an optical carrier. The optical car ...
