SBC: Lake Shore Cryotronics, Inc. Topic: AF12BT08
ABSTRACT: Terahertz (THz) spectroscopies offer unmatched non-contact probing of low-energy excitations underlying electronic transport and magnetism in a wide range of novel materials. To-date, expensive and complex THz Time Domain Spectroscopy (THz-TDS) systems are the most common THz source used in these studies. Lower cost, continuous wave (CW-THz) spectroscopy systems can offer comparable per ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Aegis Technologies Group, LLC, The Topic: AF09BT33
Recent advances in THz-source stability, power and practicality have opened the door for active THz imaging in both commercial and military settings. AEgis is teaming with U Buffalo to develop a THz detection device that utilizes classical rectification effects in semiconductor point contacts (SPCs) to achieve response in the 1 to 10 THz range and is capable of operating at temperatures over 150 K ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Electronics of the future, Inc.. Topic: AF19BT001
The focus of this proposal is FA-002 - artificial intelligence (AI), which will be used for the hardware cyber security. AI will link the THz and sub-THz responses at the pins to the defects and deviations from design of the integrated circuits under test. An increasing complexity of digital and mixed-signal systems makes establishing the authenticity of a chip to be a key problem. New rapid, inex ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT33
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of uncooled THz detectors for the 1-10THz band with a novel design using surface plasmon resonant cavities with integrated metal-insulator-metal tunneling diodes as the detecting element. Tunneling diodes provide ultrafast broadband response, potentially into the visible (300THz), but demonstrated performanc ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ITN ENERGY SYSTEMS, INC. Topic: AF09BT39
This Small Business Technology Transfer Research phase I program will develop a new class of surface plasmon enhanced photovoltaic devices that exhibit increased current collection. Photon management, the manipulation of the incident optical field to increase the probability that a photon is absorbed in the active region of the cell, is critical to the development of next generation thin film sol ...STTR Phase I 2010 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: MATRIX RESEARCH INC Topic: AF12BT05
ABSTRACT: It is well known that wind turbine clutter (WTC) presents a significant challenge to detecting targets in civilian and military applications. The large radar cross section (RCS) of wind turbines, combined with their significant range of Doppler spread, make traditional clutter mitigation techniques effectively useless. The objective of this Phase I effort is to develop a physically con ...STTR Phase I 2013 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: ATMOSPHERIC & SPACE TECHNOLOGY RESEARCH ASSOCIATES LLC Topic: AF17CT01
The Air Force is seeking solutions for a sun-tracking millimeter wave radiometer to measure atmospheric attenuation over a high dynamic range. The V- and W- bands have rarely been used for space communications and telemetry applications, but rapidly increasing government and commercial bandwidth needs will require future solutions within these bands. Our team, comprised of experienced scientists, ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
ST-ISCAD: an Affordable High Performance Telescope System for Investigating Satellites Cataloged as Debris (ISCAD)SBC: SOTER TECHNOLOGY, LLC Topic: AF16AT04
This program will develop and analyze a design for a high performance, low cost, one-person-mobile telescope, mount, and camera to track space debris. It will use an innovative optical design, unique optical fabrication technology, and a novel mirror bl...STTR Phase I 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF18AT008
Adaptive optics (AO) system performance is hindered by the mechanical limits of the deformable mirror (DM), namely stroke limits, interactuator stroke limits, and mechanical resonance.The nature of the multi-in multi-out (MIMO) control system does not lend itself well to notch filters to combat the mechanical resonances, and the stroke limits introduce non-linearities to the system.The traditional ...STTR Phase I 2018 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Echo Ridge, LLC Topic: AF15AT23
Echo Ridge proposes to prototype and demonstrate an architecture and key algorithms to support spectrum sharing for Position, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) that focuses on spectrally congested and high likelihood operational scenarios. Four key results are proposed to be delivered: 1) end-to-end Hardware-in-the-Loop (HiTL) lab demonstration of all segments of the solution in Air Force-relevant oper ...STTR Phase II 2016 Department of DefenseAir Force
