  1. Rapidly Tunable Niobium Notch Filters

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N08083

    HYPRES, in collaboration with University of Waterloo, proposes to develop a unique mixed-signal integrated circuit (IC) technology for radio frequency (RF) receivers. Using Niobium ICs, we have developed a family of receiver front-ends capable of direct digitization of RF signals up to microwave frequencies (20 GHz). Using Josephson junctions as active devices, this Digital-RF technology features ...

  2. Improved Magnetic Shielding for Superconductor Electronics

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N08060

    It is proposed to develop and build a prototype system of active magnetic shielding for superconductor electronics packaged on commercial closed-cycle cryocoolers. In this system, the residual magnetic fields inside passive mu-metal shields protecting the heart of the electronics - the superconductor digital integrated circuits and multi-chip modules will be measured by magnetic field sensors base ...

  3. Multi-input Synchronous Digital-RF Receiver

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N07110

    The goal of this project is to develop a digital-RF receiver system to enable direct digital reception from a SIGINT antenna array. In Phase I, we designed a two-input prototype chip integrating two oversampled delta ADCs with a common clock source, and two on-chip digital decimation filters. In Phase II, we propose to design, build, demonstrate, and deliver a complete cryocooled system with a dua ...

  4. Miniaturized Terahertz Spectrometer

    SBC: Zomega Terahertz Corporation            Topic: OSD05D09

    We propose to design and build a miniaturized pulsed terahertz (THz) spectrometer weighing less than 3.5 lbs, capable of real-time stand-off detection and identification of explosives and related compounds. The bandwidth of the THz system spans from 0.1 THz to 4 THz, and full waveform acquisition speeds up to 100 Hz. The room-temperature balanced detection system is one of the most sensitive THz w ...

  5. Flip Chip Bonding Technology Development for Multi-Chip Modules with Superconducting Integrated Circuits

    SBC: HYPRES, INC.            Topic: N07T018

    HYPRES in collaboration with Stony Brook University proposes to develop flip-chip bonding technology for assembling up to 4-chip MCMs operating at cryogenic temperatures. This will address the critical area of the MCM technology development and transition to full commercialization of the superconductor MCM technology for DoD and commercial satellite and wireless communications markets. The ultimat ...

  7. Acoustic Interference Rejection

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This SBIR project will determine the feasilibility of acoustic interference rejection techniques for a submarine acoustic intercept system. The signal processing techniques developed will permit the continuous tracking of active weapon sonars in the presence of interference from countermeasures and other sources. Existing submarine acoustic sensors will be used. Multiple emitter location techniq ...

  8. Development of a Supportability Performance Assessment System for Training Systems

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N03074

    In order to win the war for recruitment and retention, the CNO has stated that sailors of today and tomorrow must be well trained and equipped. Given the diverse needs of training communities, acquisition managers, and curriculum developers it is ultimately important to provide accountability and ownership in any mechanism or process that intends to enhance performance. This SBIR project will de ...

  9. Acoustic Intercept Receiver for Naval Special Warfare Undersea Vehicles

    SBC: Advanced Acoustic Concepts, Inc.            Topic: N09T012

    The current generation of high-frequency active 3-D acoustic imaging systems presents a challenge to the covert use of Underwater Vehicles (UVs) by Special Forces teams. An acoustic intercept capability is needed to detect active signals before the UV is detected, so that it can vector away from the source. The team of Advanced Acoustic Concepts and Montana State University propose to design and p ...
