  1. Rydberg-atom RF Sensors for Direction Finding and Geolocation (RADARS)

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT028

    ColdQuanta, in partnership with Dr. Zoya Popovic at the University of Colorado at Boulder, proposes to develop a three-dimensional quantum-enhanced radio-frequency (RF) signal sensor and direction finder. Our approach combines Rydberg-atom-based RF electrometry and discrete lens arrays (DLAs) of planar antennas. The DLA will serve as a Fourier optic for an incident wave, and a Rydberg-atom RF elec ...

  2. Laser and Rapid-thermal Crystallization of Low-defect GeSn and SiGeSn Layers for High Performance Infrared Detectors and Integrated Si-based Optoelectronic Devices

    SBC: EPITAXIAL LABORATORY INC            Topic: AF16AT28

    latereThis proposal describes the development of a process to synthesize low defect Ge1-xSnx and SiyGe1-x-ySnx layers on silicon and silicon-on-insulator (SOI) substrates through low thermal budget laser and rapid thermal annealing/crystallization for high performance mid-wave infrared (MWIR) photo detectors and integrated Si-based optoelectronic devices. In phase I, we demonstrated synthesis of G ...

  3. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA), SOCOM08-001

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM08001

    SOF combat swimmers have a need for the continuous monitoring of each others relative position while diving and for the capability of being able to communicate with each other to help establish a common operational picture (COP).The C3SA system was previously developed under SBIR Topic SOCOM08-001 thru the receipt of both Phase I and Phase II SBIR awards.The C3SA established a stand-alone network ...

  5. Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop a method for characterization of the full Mueller matrix for reflective scattering from a test object. The Complex Object Reflectance Characterization System (CORCS) will initially be designed for laboratory use and characterization of test objects by active imaging to measure both the Mueller Matrix and the target depth associated wi ...

  6. n-field self-calibration for inertial and magnetic sensors via electrical stimulus

    SBC: Alphacore, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT002

    Alphacore will develop a compact tunable surface mount component (capacitor bank) with tunable component range of more than 10:1. It will provide a tuning mechanism for a wide range of filter topologies with user selectable range of 10 bits. A capacitance selection from 100fF to 100pF using high density CMIM capacitors over small foot print for a variety of bands used in wide applications includin ...

  7. Damage Morphology of Advanced Concretes Using High-Speed X-Ray and Tomographic Techniques

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF18AT012

    Multiple innovative experimental X-ray techniques will be developed and demonstrated to characterize damage mechanisms/processes in advanced concretes under both quasi-static and dynamic loading.These techniques will provide tomographic information of the 3D damage morphology, as well as dynamic fracture information with high temporal resolution. The techniques can be extended to either unconfined ...

  8. Volumetric Wavefront Sensing for the Characterization of Distributed-Volume Aberrations

    SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT006

    Modern Directed Energy (DE) missions require target engagements at low elevation angles and long ranges.These engagement geometries require propagation through distributed-volume turbulence. To correct for distributed-volume turbulence effects, an estimation of the turbulence along the propagation path is required. Correcting for these image aberrations will improve the quality of the target image ...

  9. High Temperature Materials for Hypersonic Radomes and Antennas

    SBC: ADVANCED CERAMICS MANUFACTURING, LLC            Topic: AF18AT013

    Missiles experience a wide range of thermal and mechanical environments due to the large variety of flight profiles.Since it is often the aerodynamic leading edge, the missile radome undergoes significant thermal and mechanical loading. The radome must survive the dynamic pressure loading, thermal shock and environmental erosion from airborne particulates (rain / sand) while performing as an elect ...

  10. Non-Linear Adaptive Optics (NLAO)

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF18AT008

    Nutronics, Inc. and Montana State University propose to develop an approach for non-linear control of hysteresis and incorporate (if necessary) integrated Multi-Input-Multi-Output real time control with this capability.Our control systems already include a proven high speed real time control approach to determine the optimal set of actuator commands that satisfy inter-actuator stroke limitations.O ...
