  4. A Remote Egg-oiling System with Autonomous and Automated Target Object Identification for Nuisance Bird Management

    SBC: Hitron Technologies Inc.            Topic: N183142

    Leveraging our experience and expertise in robot development and system integration (hardware and software) as well as deep learning for agricultural applications, Hitron Technologies Inc. (HTI) proposes to develop an Intelligent Remote Egg Oiling System (IREOS), with the collaboration of University of South Carolina (USC). The IREOS allows for effective nuisance bird management by performing auto ...

  5. High Operating Temperature Broadband Detectors for Weapon Targeting and IR Seekers

    SBC: EPIR, INC.            Topic: N191039

    EPIR proposes to design, fabricate and deliver to US Navy broadband high operating temperature detectors and focal plane arrays (FPAs) operating at mid-wavelength-infrared (MWIR) wavelengths. To meet the response time, high frame rate, low noise and high detectivity requirements, the detectors and the FPAs will be designed to work under non-equilibrium and dark current suppression conditions. Incr ...

  7. Multi-Wavelength Quantum Cascade Laser Array with Integrated Planar Concave Grating Beam Combiner

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N19AT005

    In this proposal, a monolithic MWIR wavelength beam combining architecture ispresented based on a custom planar concave grating. This concept can combine multiple highpower quantum cascade lasers with pre-selected emission wavelengths into a single outputaperture with high efficiency. The goal is to realize all optical functions, including both activeand passive waveguiding, on the native InP subs ...

  9. A Modified GMAW System for Distortion Reduction and Travel Speed Increase through Separate Heat Input and Deposition Rate Control

    SBC: ADAPTIVE INTELLIGENT SYSTEMS            Topic: N07211

    In traditional GMAW and modifications, the current melting the wire is the same as the current heating the base metal. To maintain a minimally acceptable productivity, the base metal heat input is typically much greater than the required to control the distortion at an acceptable or desirable level. In the modified GMAW proposed, a bypass torch is added to an existing GMAW system to bypass part of ...
