  1. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this NAVY SBIR Phase I program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric fisheye lenses and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA). The fisheye lenses, as a RF antenna, have been broadly used in camera and electronic-optical systems (from visible to infrared wavelength). In th ...

  2. 28GHz-43GHz Nadir/Near-Nadir (~70-90 degrees wrt horizontal) Low Probability of Intercept Radio Frequency Direction Finding/GeoLocation Capability

    SBC: SPECTRUM MAGNETICS LLC            Topic: N102118

    In this program, we propose a radio frequency (RF) direction finding sensor for low probability of intercept (LPI) RF radar system. This sensor consists of a dielectric lenses focusing system and an innovative focus plane detector array (FPDA) developed by Spectrum Magnetics, LLC (SM). The focusing system project the RF signal onto its focus plane. A novel FPDA based on emerging spintronic and met ...

  3. 3-Band ps Pulse High Energy Compact Laser System for Marine Wave Boundary Layer Atmospheric Characterization Instrument Development

    SBC: TIPD, LLC            Topic: N19AT009

    Gaining a deeper experimental and theoretical understanding of maritime turbulence and laser light propagation in the marine boundary is required to optimize the performance of critical communication and defensive and offensive laser light engagements. Increased understanding of beam propagation through the turbulent flows of the marine layer will help the US Navy improve the performance of beam o ...

  4. 3-D Radiography and Image Analysis of Defect Detection

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    In Phase I of this project, we will investigate the feasibility of adding a "real-time" or "near real-time " stereoscopic imaging capability to the armaments radiographic inspection system already in place at Yuma Proving Ground. We will determine the best way to implement rapid, accurate, and cost-effective automated stereoscopic inspection with minimal modifications to existing equipment. We pro ...

  5. 30% Efficient Three Junction Solar Cells for Space Concentrator Modules

    SBC: JX CRYSTALS INC.            Topic: N/A

    While 30% AM0 efficient GaAs/GaSb mechanically stacked concentrator solar cells have been previously fabricated, these cells were designed for 100 suns concentration using point focus optics. These cells also used prismatic cover slides to reduce grid shading losses, a feature which is not practical when thick cover slides are used for radiation protection. When operated at 25 suns with line focus ...

  6. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    In this proposal, nLight and their collaborator, Eric Johnson, of CREOL, seek to address the main limitations in generating phased arrays by using very high power single mode tapered devices that are phase locked via long “coupling” lasers. The individual diodes would be phase aligned by careful control of their drive current – this would fine-tune the phase to bring it into alignment. The c ...

  7. 3D Diode-Cross-Coupled Tapered Lasers for Kilowatt-Class, Chip-Scale, Laser Diode Phased Arrays

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: SB062013

    Based on promising results obtained under our Phase 1 SBIR contract, nLIGHT wishes to proceed with a Phase 2 program. In the proposed program, nLIGHT will continue the development of high power, single-lateral-mode tapered diode lasers. nLIGHT has identified fundamental limitations to the operation of tapered diode lasers and proposes novel design and fabrication process improvements which direc ...

  8. 3D Scaffold and Stem Cell Based Bioengineered Skin for Treatment of Cutaneous Vesicant Injury

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD05117

    Vesicants have been used as chemical warfare agents since World War I and are still considered a major class of chemical threat agents both for the military and for homeland security. There are four different vesicating agents: impure sulfur mustard, distilled sulfur mustard, phosgene oxime, and lewisite. Among them, mustard is the most important militarily. The organs most commonly affected by ...

  9. 3D Scaffold and Stem Cell Based Bioengineered Skin for Treatment of Cutaneous Vesicant Injury

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: CBD05117

    In this Phase II project Nomadics will novate our research to a spin-out company Nico Technologies. Nomadics will remain a subcontractor during this transition. The team proposes a new treatment for injuries from mustard gas based on biodegradable inverted colloidal crystal scaffolds impregnated with stem cells. Phase I results demonstrated excellent performance of these scaffolds for different ...

  10. 3D Visualization for Serpentine Robotic Systems

    SBC: LITE CYCLES, INC.            Topic: SB062023

    The program objective to develop a sensor system to enable teleoperation or autonomous behavior of small serpentine robots includes the following technical objectives in the Phase I effort: 1.) Conduct feasibility study for creation of a real time 3D representation of local terrain for use on the moving nose or tail of the serpentine robot 2.) Develop plans for design and demonstration of the most ...
