  1. Agnostic Wireless Communications Waveform Gateway

    SBC: MAXENTRIC TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: N09T037

    Each tactical radio uses a particular waveform that inhibits it from freely communicating with a radio on another network. There is a need for a flexible communication gateway that supports interoperability, and can automatically translate among a set of waveforms to transfer information across networks. In response to the need for a flexible gateway, MaXentric and The Cooper Union have partnered ...

  2. Arrayed Nano-pattern Generating Tool by Plasmonic Enhanced Optical Nano-Probe

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: OSD10T006

    In this OSD STTR proposal, a team from PolarOnyx and Stanford University will develop a revolutionary method for nano-patterning by integrating ultrafast fiber laser with a CANtip (C shape nano structure). This unprecedented reliable and repeatable approach will play a critical role in 2D and 3D nano-patterning in providing a compact, flexible, simple, and cost effective solution.

  3. Autonomous Detection of Missile Targets Using Neromorphic M

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: N/A

    Work to be performed in this program is based upon years of innovative technology development invested by personnel at Nova Research. Techniques proposed here are patterned after biological principles which, when applied to finding targets which are moving against highly cluttered infrared backgrounds, will be shown to exhibit remarkable performance. Such techniques produce highly superior resul ...

  4. Beam Control for Optical Phased Array Transceivers

    SBC: G A Tyler Assoc. Inc. dba the Optical Sciences Co.            Topic: AF10BT23

    ABSTRACT: A design analysis is proposed to enhance the performance of conventional phased array weapon systems and ensure that traditionally required pointing and tracking functions can be maintained. A key feature of the proposed program is the inclusion of complimentary technologies that mitigate the limitations of existing concepts under consideration that are significantly degraded by speckl ...

  5. Broadband Obscurants for Visible and IR Countermeasures

    SBC: NANOCOMPOSIX INC            Topic: A08T025

    Successful military operations require dominant control of the electromagnetic spectrum in the battlefield. Smokes and obscurants are becoming increasingly important to block the function of enemy optical tracking systems and sensors during day and night operations. Fielded munitions are optimized for either the visible or infrared regions of the electromagnetic spectrum. A single device that b ...

  8. Combat Simulation Analysis of Advanced Technology Weapons

    SBC: HPS Simulations            Topic: N/A

    PC-based combat simulation software is now capable of accurately recreating the conditions and end results of modern battles. One of the specific uses of such a software package is to evaluate the performance of a proposed modification or entirely new weapons system in battle situations. This will insure the system meets with expectations and requirements, before additional expensive development ...

  9. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N11AT002

    As with all service branches within the Department of Defense (DoD), the mission objectives of the Navy are expanding to encompass not only major combat operations, but also asymmetric warfare scenarios. This expanding role requires the Navy to increasingly operate in littoral waters where effective identification of small craft and semi-submersibles is a critical capability for both fleet protect ...

  10. Compact Radar Technology For Over the Horizon Small-Boat and Semi-Submersible Detection and Tracking

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N11AT002

    Over-The-Horizon (OTH) radar plays a crucial role in naval situational awareness and the ultimate safety of the naval warfighter and navy assets. Traditionally, OTH detection has been enabled by large land based radars exploiting the interaction of high frequency (HF) radio waves with the ionosphere, but this method is susceptible to instabilities in propagation and the limitations of HF systems. ...
