  1. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...

  2. Fooling Computer Vision Classifiers with Adversarial Examples

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182127

    The Lynntech team proposes to develop a Computer Vision FoolKit system that integrates cutting-edge approaches to systematically evaluate physically realizable adversarial attacks against several leading computer vision classifiers. It has been noted that most deep neural networks are demonstrably vulnerable to adversarial examples, even in the form of small-magnitude changes in intensities of the ...

  3. Submarine Sensor Environmental Inference

    SBC: KSA, LLC            Topic: N182135

    The Base and Option propose applying machine learning (ML) deep learning (DL) methods to estimate the Waveguide Invariant (WGI). The ML and DL application also provide prior parameterization of the waveguide. Data fusion methods generate Energy Spectral Density (ESD) and Empirical Orthogonal Functions (EOF) to characterize the uncertainty of the sound speed profile in the water column from which t ...

  4. Mid-infrared quantum cascade lasers with highly efficient heat extraction architecture

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182113

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin proposes to demonstrate a new active region and thermal packaging configuration for the mid-wave infrared quantum cascade lasers that provide both high modal overlap with the laser active region and a dramatically reduced thermal impedance of the laser compared to the current state-of-the-art. The proposed laser desig ...

  5. Anti-Reflective Surface Structures for Missile Domes

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: N182105

    Next-generation infrared (IR) seekers will have an aerodynamically-engineered nose cone geometry with a significantly higher degree of curvature compared to conventional hemispherical domes. To prevent unwanted specular + diffuse reflections that obscure the IR focal plane array, the interior of the dome should ideally be treated with an anti-reflective (AR) layer that suppresses stray light refle ...

  6. Weather Avoidance Sensor Systems for Unmanned Aerial Systems

    SBC: RDRTec Incorporated            Topic: N182099

    RDRTec with Raytheon as a subcontractor and transition partner proposes to design, develop, and demonstrate feasibility of enhanced approaches to unmanned aircraft weather avoidance using a combination of organic weather radar and electro-optics. The goal of this effort is to provide increased safety against weather hazards while minimizing unnecessary deviations by using visual cues and measurabl ...

  7. Portable Ruggedized Energy Efficient Medical Sterilizer

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182096

    Current field sterilizers are large, power-intensive systems that present a logistical burden to forward-deployed resuscitative surgical facilities. There is a need for a low-cost, person-transportable medical sterilizer capable of sterilizing small surgical tools and trays in a Role 1-2 tactical environment. This Phase I SBIR will design and test a breadboard sterilization system that demonstrate ...

  8. Individual Incapacitating Stun Effect Round (IISER)

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N183140

    Non-lethal weapons (NLWs) fill a strategic role in developing and maintaining security in military and law enforcement applications. Human Electro-Muscular Incapacitation (HEMI) devices are routinely used for subduing and apprehending targets rather than resorting to lethal methods of force protection. However, current devices are tethered, limiting the use range to less than 10 meters, and they o ...

  9. Efficient 3-D Imaging of Vessels for Improved Classification and Persistent Tracking

    SBC: RDRTec Incorporated            Topic: N141018

    Maritime Classification Aid (MCA) performance will be enhanced by maturing both the 3-D ISAR technology developed under the phase SBIR topic N141-081 and the integration of the enhanced capability with SEMS / Minotaur. Tuning and testing will be focused on transition to the MQ-4C Triton and P-8A Poseidon programs. 3D-ISAR work previously performed on topic N141-018 demonstrated that under favorabl ...

  10. More Efficient GaN- SiGe based MMICs for Communication and Radar Systems

    SBC: RDRTec Incorporated            Topic: N14AT007

    During this Phase II.5 SBIR effort, we propose to design, develop and fabricate prototype SiGe MMICs and perform initial array layout that will support the baseline AN/ZPY-9 Hybrid Monopulse Interferometry (HMI) C-Band Active Electronically Scanned Array (AESA) radar as well as support a fully populated HMI AESA configuration offering potential performance improvements. Our overall objective is to ...
