  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. Clean, Green, ChemBio Defense/Fire Retardant Process Using Nanotechnology

    SBC: Aqua Resources Corporation            Topic: SOCOM10007

    NanoPlatelets (NPs) created of metal hydroxides present entirely new and previously unknown set of morphologes/properties and are a virtually new frontier and unstudied field of Material Science and may be leveraged into many of todays DoD and Comercial Technical Challenges and applications. Case in point is SOCOM's Defense Mitigation and Decontamination of military aircraft and equipment and ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. NanoEnhanced Toxic Industrial Chemicals Sensor

    SBC: EngeniusMicro, LLC            Topic: SB072001

    This proposal investigates handheld chemical sensors that utilize surface-enhanced Raman spectrometry, or SERS. First, SERS will be developed utilizing nanoporous alumina membranes with selective binders and metallic nanodots. These devices have demonstrated 10^12 enhancement Second, a microfluidic chip will be developed to house the SERS substrate, provide fluid access to the SERS chip, and pr ...

  6. A Handheld Sensor for Amorphous Coating Integrity Evaluation

    SBC: ALPHASENSE, INC.            Topic: SB093002

    Under the DARPA sponsored Naval Advanced Amorphous Coating (NAAC) program, a novel, thermal sprayed amorphous metal coating has been developed. Such a coating has demonstrated superior mechanical and corrosion resistance properties. Although the coating is designed to be life-of-ship, the application and operational conditions may compromise the integrity of the coating. For example, the applicati ...

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

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: SB113003

    In this SBIR effort we will design (Phase I) and demonstrate (Phase II) an integrated silicon electronic-photonic upconversion receiver that when used with our photonic backend will allow for a highly sensitive, real-time, and economical millimeter wave (mmW) imaging system. The development of this chip leverages recent progress in CMOS and SiGe HBT high speed analog circuit design and integrates ...
