  1. Improved target recognition using polarimetric ladar

    SBC: PHYSICS INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Flash laser radar (ladar) systems have been developed for automatic target identification in military surveillance systems. Ideally, the system is able to distinguish pixels containing the target from pixels containing background. A signal processor thenuses the range value at target pixels to estimate the target's 3-D shape (angle-angle-range) and, from the 3-D shape, identify the target. Howe ...

  2. Package and Personnel Inspection Systems for Installation and Aviation Security

    SBC: PICOMETRIX, LLC            Topic: N/A

    We propose to develop the design for a terahertz imaging and spectroscopy inspection system prototype for the detection of concealed threats in packages and personnel. Terahertz imaging has the potential to reveal concealed explosives; metallic andnon-metallic weapons (such as ceramic, plastic or composite guns and knives); flammables; biological agents; chemical weapons and other threats hidden ...

  4. Induction-based Thermographic Inspection of Composites

    SBC: THERMAL WAVE IMAGING INC            Topic: N/A

    Rapid growth in the performance and capabilities of thermography, and the increased use of composite materials in the construction and repair of military and commercial aircraft, has strongly positioned it as a viable NDI technique. In Phase I, ThermalWave Imaging, Inc. and UD-CCM propose to develop an AC coupled, non-contact Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) technique that can evaluate 3-D state o ...

  5. Determination of Micorcracking Damage in Composites

    SBC: THERMAL WAVE IMAGING INC            Topic: N/A

    Rapid growth in the performance and capabilities of pulsed thermography, and the increased use of composite materials in the construction and repair of military and commercial aircraft, has strongly positioned it as a viable NDI technique. Thistechnology, as it currently stands, is a widely accepted rapid, non-contact, wide-area inspection tool. In Phase I of this program, Thermal Wave Imaging, ...

  6. A 94 GHz Aperture Coupled Circularly Polarized Transceiver Antenna

    SBC: TLC Precision Wafer Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Advance millimeter wave (MMW) transceivers are needed to further enhance the U.S. military current and future communication, detection and guidance systems. TLC will develop and demonstrate a unique low-cost, wire-bond-free, 70-94 GHz W-band antennaintegrated MMIC transceiver that also meet commercial performance, low price, and simplicity requirements. This transceiver will also provide excelle ...

  7. A Radiation Hard Self Bias Low Noise Amplifier

    SBC: TLC Precision Wafer Technology, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Current military and commercial communication systems at lower frequencies experience spectrum crowding, and does not have wide bandwidths needed for high data rates. Broadband Low Noise Amplifiers (LNA) are crucial components in any receiver system.Although a wide variety of LNAs are currently available in the frequency bands below 50 GHz, little development has occurred in the 49 to 52 GHz range ...

  8. Singlemode Multifiber Connectors

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Singlemode fiber optic systems offer great potential to improve sensing, multiplexing, and control systems for aerospace vehicles compared with multimode-based fiber optic systems. The primary issue preventing greater deployment of singlemode is theconnectors. Current technology was developed for telecom and will not meet the demands of aerospace. The biggest problem is getting a singlemode con ...

  9. High Specific Power Solar Array Using Multijunction Amorphous Silicon Alloy Solar Cells

    SBC: UNITED SOLAR SYSTEMS CORP.            Topic: N/A

    The proposed program will test the feasibility and key concepts towards the fabrication of a full-scale flexible thin film film photovoltaic blanket. In Phase I, the full size blanket will not be built. That will be undertaken in Phase II. Phase I willfocus on the development and validity testing of the module coupon design, and the integration of the module coupons to fabricate a subscale phot ...
