  1. Fiber Optic Vector Sensor Sonobuoy System

    SBC: Vibration, Impact and Pressure Sensors, Inc.            Topic: N122113

    VIP Sensors proposes to develop a very low noise, highly sensitive Fiber Optic Vector Sensor (FOVS) System packaged in a size - A sonobuoy. The FOVS includes a triaxial optical accelerometer, an omnidirectional optical hydrophone and an optical compass. Only a pair of single mode optic fibers interconnects the fully passive vector sensor located below sea level to the sonobuoy"s Surface Electronic ...

  2. Deep Vector Sensor System

    SBC: PROGENY SYSTEMS CORPORATION            Topic: N122113

    The US Navy has a requirement for a Reliable Acoustic Path A-sized sonobuoy system. The major challenge is to reduce sensor electronic noise to exploit the environment. Additionally, A-size introduces numerous technical challenges for flow and vertical motion induced noise mitigation, for data telemetry, and for packaging. Progeny Systems Corporation teamed with UnderSea Sensor Systems, Inc. pro ...

  4. Carbon Monoxide Detector For Aviation Oxygen Systems

    SBC: VISTA PHOTONICS, INC.            Topic: N122120

    Aircraft On-Board Oxygen Generating System (OBOGS) selectively filters compressed air from the aircraft's engine to remove nitrogen and other gaseous contaminants to provide the aircrew with an oxygen enriched breathing gas. During shipboard operations, Navy aircraft are particularly vulnerable to excessive levels of toxic byproducts from ingesting the jet exhaust from other aircraft. Under s ...

  5. High Efficiency SIGINT Collection

    SBC: Invertix Corporation            Topic: N122121

    Signals intelligence systems use the established Shannon-Nyquist approach of signal acquisition, setting a sampling requirement based on data rate. This sampling approach is generating operationally impractical amounts of data, most of which goes unused or arrives late. The conventional rate of data-to-information (DTI) conversion is low, and there exists high demand for a solution. A new approach ...

  7. Innovative Method for Wirelessly Powering RFID Tags Located on Rotorcraft

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N122126

    TDA"s research during this SBIR will incorporate the two main types of RFID technology: passive and active RFID systems. During previous research, TDA has shown that passive systems present challenges with respect to effective read range, as well as performance in a metal-rich environment. However, TDA believes that the performance of these systems can be enhanced via beam forming, impedance match ...

  8. Advanced Foam-Based Cryogenic Heat Exchanger

    SBC: Ultramet            Topic: N122128

    Cryogenic heat exchangers for cooling gaseous helium are hampered by the fact that helium is a low-density gas. As a result, heat transfer coefficients tend to be low. To compensate for this, Ultramet will design and fabricate an open-cell foam-based heat exchanger using technology that was originally developed for high-power microwave integrated circuits for naval radars. In that application, hea ...

  9. High Power Vertical Gallium Nitride (GaN) Transistors on Native GaN Substrates for Power Switching Applications

    SBC: Avogy            Topic: N122135

    Avogy has a unique approach to producing vertical GaN-on-GaN power devices that have fundamental advantages over silicon, silicon carbide, and lateral GaN devices. With this SBIR funding, we will demonstrate the feasibility of a normally-off vertical GaN transistor with a blocking voltage over 5000V, a threshold voltage greater than 1V, and specific on-resistance less than 30 mohm-cm2.

  10. Automated PrOduct GEneration and Enrichment (APOGEE)


    Creating information products to answer"Tell Me About"questions requires the ability to identify key pieces of information relevant to a complex set of content requirements. Complicating matters, these key pieces of information are scattered across data stores and buried in huge volumes of data. This results in the current predicament analysts find themselves; information retrieval and management ...
