  1. Heterogeneous Silicon Photonics OFDR Sensing System

    SBC: Luna Innovations Incorporated            Topic: T8

    Luna will team with Dr. John Bowers of UCSB to continue development of an Optical Frequency Domain Reflectometry (OFDR) system-on-chip using heterogeneous silicon photonics to enable a minimal weight structural health monitoring system. This system-on-chip will be the building block for distributed sensing interrogation systems that are the size of a deck of playing cards. This lightweight, rugged ...

  2. Orbit Passive Estimation by an RF Array

    SBC: Expedition Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF171026

    Expedition Technology and Applied Defense Solutions propose OPERA, a passive, distributed antenna array to achieve an autonomous, 24/7 LEO and GEO satellite RF tracking and fingerprinting capability for a recurring price less than $500K. A distributed antenna forms an aperture large enough to support accurate orbit determination over a broad range of frequencies, yet small enough to be installed o ...

  6. Miniaturization of high average power, high peak power, wide bandwidth antennas

    SBC: XL Scientific, LLC            Topic: A16123

    Verus Research is pleased to respond to the A16-123 Army Phase-II SBIR solicitation. To meet the Armys Phase-II requirements in a risk-mitigated fashion, Verus Research will leverage its innovative Ferengi family-of-antennas technology which was conceived, designed, and experimentally demonstrated by Verus Research under the previous Army-funded Phase-I Base A16-123 SBIR effort. For the proposed P ...
