  1. Monolithic Beam Steerer for High Power Mid-infrared Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: Omega Optics, Inc.            Topic: N182109

    In this SBIR program, Omega Optics, University of Texas, Austin and Adtech Photonics propose a complete monolithic epitaxial device, with no wafer bonding, for surface emitting 2D non-mechanical optical beam steering at 4.6 micron wavelength. Two methods will be investigated: first, with slant etch normal emitters for azimuthal and elevation steering at a single wavelength using thermal phase shif ...

  2. Monolithic high-power QCL-based photonic integrated circuits for two-dimensional beam steering

    SBC: TransWave Photonics, LLC            Topic: N182109

    TransWave Photonics, LLC in collaboration with the University of Texas at Austin, proposes to demonstrate a mid-infrared 2-dimensional beam-steering photonic integrated circuit (PIC) with a passive InGaAs/InP platform where high performance mid infrared quantum cascade laser sources, low-loss InGaAs waveguides, and beam steering photonic elements are monolithically integrated. Low mid-infrared opt ...

  3. Monolithic Quantum Cascade Laser-based Platform with Electronically Controlled Output Beam Steering

    SBC: IRGLARE, LLC            Topic: N182109

    In response to the NAVY SBIR solicitation N182-109, the IRGLARE team proposes the development of a 4.6m Quantum Cascade Laser (QCL) source delivering >1W of continuous wave (CW) optical power with monolithically integrated 2D beam steering mechanism. The steering angle of the output beam will be electronically controllable in the range of 10 and 25 degrees in the two planes normal to the device em ...

  4. EROSION RESISTANT HYBRIDSIL ICEPHOBIC COATINGS FOR AIRCRAFT PROPULSION TURBOMACHINERY INLET COMPONENTS

    SBC: Nanosonic Inc.            Topic: N182115

    Through the proposed Navy SBIR program, NanoSonic will molecularly engineer and empirically optimize its HybridSil Icephobic coating technology for imparting long-term passive ice protection to aircraft propulsion turbomachinery inlet components. Unlike competing icephobic coating technologies that rely on unreacted, surface enriching / lubricating oils that impart temporary ice protection, NanoSo ...

  5. WAHTER- Wearable Aircrew Hydration Tracking and Extended Recording

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: N182114

    Dehydration is a significant issue for both military and civilian personnel. However, it is of increased concern in the military fast-jet environment. Due to inconvenient urine relief mechanisms, aircrew can often become dehydrated over the course of an extended mission, whether intentionally or inadvertently. Dehydration is known to result in cognitive shortcomings, and given the complex nature o ...

  6. Multifunction-Multimodal Airborne Radar in Maritime/Littoral Environments

    SBC: Azure Summit Technology, Inc.            Topic: N182120

    Airborne surveillance radars continue to advance towards more flexible architectures that enable them to address evolving adversary tactics facilitated by global proliferation of RF and High Performance Embedded Computing (HPEC) technologies. Aided by these technologies, the adversary can use multiple electronic counter measures that can confuse traditional monostatic radars and obscure the true o ...

  7. Effect of Surface Finish and Post-Processing on the Fatigue Life of Additively Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: TECHNICAL DATA ANALYSIS, INC.            Topic: N182126

    Additive manufacturing technology is becoming more popular for the fabrication of 3D metal products as it offers rapid prototyping and large design freedom. However, with more complex geometric features due to topology optimization, it becomes infeasible to carry out traditional surface machining process to improve surface roughness for fatigue performance. In this effort, we will develop a novel ...

  8. Fooling Computer Vision Classifiers with Adversarial Examples

    SBC: Lynntech Inc.            Topic: N182127

    The Lynntech team proposes to develop a Computer Vision FoolKit system that integrates cutting-edge approaches to systematically evaluate physically realizable adversarial attacks against several leading computer vision classifiers. It has been noted that most deep neural networks are demonstrably vulnerable to adversarial examples, even in the form of small-magnitude changes in intensities of the ...

  9. Computer Learning Obfuscating Adversarial Kit (CLOAK)

    SBC: DECISIVE ANALYTICS CORPORATION            Topic: N182127

    In 2013, Szegedy et al. identified a series of intriguing properties of neural networks. One property introduced in the paper, adversarial examples, describes the possibility of instability in neural network classification when a small perturbation is added to input. Specifically, the authors found that a small strategic perturbation to an input image could cause a classifier to misclassify an obj ...

  10. Nanocomposite Polymer Binders with Reversible Crosslink Architectures

    SBC: Helicon Chemical Company LLC            Topic: N182129

    Many energetic material formulations rely on elastomeric polymer binders to achieve required safety, aging, and mechanical properties. These binder systems are commonly produced by cast-cure methods using HTPB and an isocyanate curative. To take advantage of emerging technologies in weapon design and manufacturing, innovative new binders are needed with tailorable cure/cross-link chemistry, improv ...
