  1. Development of Novel Phase Shifterless RF Phase Array Antenna Systems

    SBC: Tahoe RF Semiconductor Inc.,            Topic: N09T035

    Tahoe RF"s will develop"BeamDirect,"a phased array beam forming & beam steering system which incorporates the LO Phase Shifting technology developed during the Phase I activities. The system will perform as a broad band phase array antenna receiver from 100 MHz to a 6 GHz in conjunction with a circular broadband antenna. This system will provide exceptional SNR and BER and is targeted to improve i ...

  2. Development of Low-Cost Augmented Reality Head Mounted Display

    SBC: PHASESPACE INC.            Topic: N09T031

    For this Phase 2 effort related to STTR Topic N09-T031, PhaseSpace proposes building an HMD system using pico-projectors and reflective transparent lenses. The system will be low-cost, but the improved field-of-view (improved compared to current state-of-the-art) will provide a higher quality immersive experience than systems currently on the market. PhaseSpace has already developed prototypes of ...

  3. Development of Low-Cost Tracking System for Infantry Training

    SBC: PHASESPACE INC.            Topic: N09T021

    PhaseSpace and the University of Southern California (USC) propose a hybrid tracking solution that will combine the PhaseSpace Impulse LED tracking technology with computer vision image processing and inertial tracking. The hybrid tracker will track IR LEDs on a soldier''s head, fingers, weapon, and boots, to sub-millimeter precision at 960 Hz. It will also be capable of capturing each s ...

  4. Direct Drive Optical Link for High Speed Cryogenic Data Readout

    SBC: ULTRA COMMUNICATIONS, INC.            Topic: N11AT022

    We propose the development of a low-power optical link to read-out data at 30 Gbps to 100 Gbps rates from a 4 K environment. Injection-locked lasers with low impedance can be directly driven by superconducting digital logic signals. This would eliminate the energy dissipated in the impedance transformation and amplification required to boost superconductor signals to drive traditional optical modu ...

  5. Energy Scaling of Ultrashort Pulse (USP) High Energy Fiber Lasers Through Temporal Control

    SBC: Raydiance, Inc.            Topic: N09T013

    Phase Tailoring represents a unique and novel approach to significantly driving up pulse energies in all-fiber ultrafast laser systems. One of the challenges of working in the ultrafast regime is that the amplification and compression part of the chirped pulse amplification scheme can cause a variety of effects that will damage pulse quality and must be accounted for, such as B-integral, SOP and o ...

  6. Enhanced Riverine Drifter

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: N10AT024

    The Navy has need of assessing the river environment including bathymetry, flow velocity profile, and navigational obstructions. While improvements in measurement fidelity and reduction in cost have come about by the use of multiple drifters, measurement quality is lost due to convergent drifter trajectories, and cost/risk remains high due to personnel effort required for deployment. An autonomous ...

  7. Expanding Helicopter Pilots Field of View

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N10BT049

    Night vision has been a key enabling technology for the past 30 years that has allowed US pilots to"own the night". One of the big disadvantages of current night vision systems is that they have not provided pilots with good peripheral vision, since most have a total field of view (TFOV) of only 40 degrees. A large survey of USAF pilots found that the most often requested improvement to night visi ...

  8. Full Spectrum Zinc Oxide Nanowire Sensors By MOCVD


    Structured Materials Industries, Inc. (SMI) with its partner, Drexel University, propose to build upon our Phase I success and continue the development of electrically contacted zinc oxide nanowire (NW) arrays for highly efficient solar blind UV sensors, and implement them in a packaged prototype product. The properties of ZnO make it a very promising material for optoelectronic devices. In partic ...

  9. GENerative Waveform Agnostic Gateway (GENWAG) architecture


    The Department of Defense (DoD) requires a large number of gateways for inter-networking between disparate waveforms. Until now gateways are designed for specific waveform domains, this approach although simple and quick has led to a lot of duplication of effort. In this proposal UtopiaCompression (UC) in collaboration with UCLA, Command and Control Technologies Corporation and the Boeing Company ...

  10. High Density, High Efficiency Electrical Power Generation System for UAS Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: N11AT009

    UAVs are carrying out missions which were once reserved to manned aircraft only. These missions require that the UAV carries more and more sophisticated equipment which consumes large amount of electric power. The power requirement vary, and sometime consist of both AC power with a fixed frequency, and high voltage DC power. As power requirement grow the need for an electrical power system which i ...
