  1. Radio Frequency Optical Front-End Receiver for Strong in Band Signal Rejection

    SBC: GenXComm, Inc            Topic: SOCOM183002

    The objective of this proposal is to perform a system study to demonstrate the benefits of using a tunable photonic Hybrid Photonic Receiver filter to reduce intermodulation distortion effects on wideband communication receivers. A traditional Radio Frequency (RF) receiver digitizes high frequency (HF), very high frequency (VHF), and ultra-high frequency (UHF) spectrums simultaneously and then sam ...

  4. Gap-Free Model-Based Engineering for Manufacturing and Analysis: Digital Thread without Translation

    SBC: Nvariate, Inc.            Topic: None

    Modern Model-Based Enterprise / Engineering (MBE) systems rely on freeform surfaces built as complex combinations of geometric primitives to define engineered objects. Unfortunately, the intersection of freeform surfaces in MBE applications results in highly approximated solutions, degrading models that cost billions annually by US industry to fix. Current technology limits the abilities of users ...

  8. Small Lightweight Concealable Stabilization Device

    SBC: Texas Research Institute, Austin, Inc.            Topic: SOCOM15005

    U.S. SOCOM requires small, lightweight, concealable stabilization devices for target designators, cameras, and other imagers. A fieldable solution must be rugged, fold into a very small form factor, and weigh less than one pound. Joint Tactical Air Controller (JTAC) missions have experienced reduced targeting capabilities as current tripods are often omitted from mission equipment due to excessi ...

  9. Maritime Surface Search Phased Array for Combatant-Craft

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: SOCOM15001

    In this Phase I effort, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts for advanced Surface Search Phased Array radar systems that will be integrated on Naval Special Warfare Combatant-Craft. A phased array system allows for dynamic beam steering with graceful degradation and eliminates the need for mechanical pointing of the antenna aperture. The FIRST RF SSPA radar system will detect, locate, track ...

  10. Large-Area, High-Uniformity Photodiodes for Infrared Trap Detectors

    SBC: Amethyst Research Incorporated            Topic: 9020168R

    methyst Research Inc. will design, fabricate and test a high uniformity, large area, low noise infrared trap-detector detector for the 1- 4.5 μm wavelength range. This state of the art detector will have a large area (e.g., 1-1.8 cm diameter active area) with a spatial variability of internal quantum efficiency of less than 0.1 % between 1 μm and 4.5 μm. In addition, the internal quantum effici ...
