  1. Large Format Uncooled Focal Plane Array

    SBC: BFE Acquisition Sub II, LLC            Topic: A07098

    Uncooled focal plane array (FPA) technology has evolved such that good performance can be achieved in the long wavelength infrared with 17 micron pixel pitch if noise is not limited by readout circuits. Improved bolometer bias and signal processing readout circuitry was demonstrated by design and analysis on Phase I to achieve high performance in small pixels. These circuits will interface with hi ...

  2. Time Multiplexed Step and Stare Ultraresolution Ca

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09046

    An ultraresolution imaging system is proposed which reduces the required number of FPAs by about an order of magnitude. The system employs a muli-channel step and stare imaging array (SSIA) which coregisters the independent channel fields onto the centre of a single FPA. The system is constructed to achieve conjoined image fields from adjacent channel lenses by providing the correct lens tip and t ...

  3. Air to Ground Free Space Optical Communication Lin

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: A09065

    Boulder Nonlinear Systems proposes to use its beam control system expertise to examine the feasibility of developing a free space optical terminal for air to ground optical communication. The proposed technology will emphasize size, weight and power constraints to improve the probability of eventual deployment on platforms with low payload capabilities. During Phase I, BNS will perform a componen ...

  6. Training Tools to Improve the Teaching and Coaching Skills of Military Advisors

    SBC: eCrossCulture            Topic: A08T003

    This proposal describes the development of an informed, comprehensive curriculum to improve U.S. military advisor training. The goal is to enhance the effectiveness of military advisors so that they understand and utilize principles and practices of intercultural training. Although this proposal is replete with innovative and informed approaches to training military advisors, we highlight five s ...

  7. Training Innovations for Nonverbal Cue Decoding

    SBC: eCrossCulture            Topic: OSD07T004

    The current emphasis on SSTR and COIN operations often places a soldier in close, interpersonal roles while building schools, training police, etc…. Many operations involve establishing rapport and discerning intent in close proximity to friendly and possibly dangerous individuals. Unfortunately, the typical American Soldier not only deals with unfamiliar, non-Western environments, but has lit ...

  9. Improved mini Ku band antenna for TCDL

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A08126

    Airborne communications systems such as TCDL are vulnerable to loss of link due to normal aircraft maneuvers. A dramatic need exists for an antenna system impervious to aircraft pitch and roll vectors. During Phase I, FIRST RF proposed and demonstrated a novel but simple and rugged geo-stabilization mechanism for antennas in dynamic environments. The system maintains a fixed beam despite aircra ...

  10. Conformal Omni-Directional Antenna Design for Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: A08112

    The proliferation of Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) in DoD’s fleet has created a serious need for lightweight, airborne conformal antennas that cover numerous frequency bands. Shadow 200 is a great example of a high performance, exceptionally versatile UAV system which is finding use among nearly all DoD services. This airframe’s ever-expanding set of functions requires a fresh approach to ...
