  1. Silicon Receiver for Millimeter Wave Distributed Aperture Imager with Optical Upconversion

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this Phase II SBIR effort we will dramatically reduce the size, weight, and power requirements of a passive millimeter wave imaging system based on optical upconversion. To this end, we will integrate custom silicon-germanium low noise amplifiers that have been designed to efficiently couple with our high performance lithium niobate upconversion modules. In Phase I we analyzed the design requ ...

  2. Adaptive Tactical Laser System Field Demonstration of Wavefront Measurement and Compensation

    SBC: NUTRONICS, INC.            Topic: AF083003

    Directed Energy (DE) systems offer the promise of dramatic improvements in capability for self defense and area defense systems along with an enhanced precision strike and engagement capability. Unfortunately, turbulence causes the beam to break up at the target, significantly limiting the range of DE systems and limiting their availability to benign turbulence conditions. Adaptive Optical (AO) ...

  3. Frequency Stabilized Laser for use in Microwave Generation

    SBC: Boulder Precision Electro-optics            Topic: SB121001

    We construct a frequency stabilized laser which will generate 10 GHz microwaves with Phase noise -100 dBC/Hz at 1 Hz, or equivalently, an optical frequency with an Allan Deviation of 8e-16 and a drift rate of

  4. Capturing Insights from Firefights to Improve Training

    SBC: HF DESIGNWORKS, INC            Topic: SB082036

    Despite continuous improvements in military tactics and technology, casualties still remain. Phase I examined the idea of the “first five firefights” to identify if Soldiers have an increased likelihood of becoming a casualty during the initial days of their tour. Research consisted of gathering and compiling Soldier fatality data, conducting interviews (individual and group) with Soldiers and ...

  5. GPU-Based High-Performance Computing for Accelerated Design and Analysis

    SBC: EM PHOTONICS INC            Topic: SB082024

    Commodity graphics processing units (GPUs) offer tremendous computational throughput for relatively little cost. They have been shown to outperform microprocessors in the important metrics of FLOPS/dollar, FLOPS/Watt, and FLOPS/unit space and have already been applied to a wide range of numerically intense problems. In Phase I of this project, we demonstrated their potential to enhance complex C ...

  6. Robust Distributed GPS Apertures

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: SB091012

    The DoD is heavily dependent on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for worldwide military operations. The GPS signal is subject to a variety of potential degradations, such as path loss (e.g., foliated or indoor environments), multipath (e.g., urban canyon or in-building), and interference (intentional or unintentional). There are many military applications where a group of GPS users may operat ...

  7. High-Power, Narrow Linewidth Laser Sources for Alkali Atoms

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: SB082017

    The purpose of this proposal is to produce high-power, narrow-linewidth (~1 MHz or less), robust, turnkey laser sources that will meet the requirements of emerging cold-atom sensors. The goal of this Phase II effort is to develop a frequency-agile diode laser system with an output power of 1000 mW. This single-laser source can be modulated with sidebands at up to 10 GHz for repumping operations, ...

  8. Negative Refraction Superlattice SuperLens

    SBC: LUTRONICS            Topic: SB072035

    This Phase II project is the continuation of the successful Phase I effort on developing new negative index metamaterials for future optics applications. The proposed technology will tackle those problems associated with existing metamaterial designs, including their need for using advanced nanofabrications, strong energy dissipation associated with the use of metals, and cost ineffectiveness, by ...

  9. Small Team Command, Control, Communications and Situational Awareness (C3SA)

    SBC: CEEBUS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: SOCOM08001

    In Phase I Ceebus demonstrated the feasibility of an underwater, acoustic, direct-sequence spread-spectrum communication architecture, including actual data transfers and decoded message recovery. All of the communication algorithms were post-processed and communication was performed with a single piezo transducer. Prototype development is the next step in delivering a system that offers real-time ...

  10. Low Cost Orbital Debris Removal System

    SBC: Wacari Group, LLC            Topic: N093223

    The proposed space tug concept proffers a cost-effective rocket stage and debris removal solution that eliminates the need for any physical contact between the spacecraft and the target object, thus eliminating costly precision control and maneuvering systems, the risks of collision with the target-object, and the possibility of elements breaking off the target-object. Furthermore, a novel and hi ...
