The SBIR.gov award data files now contain the required fields to calculate award timeliness for individual awards or for an agency or branch. Additional information on calculating award timeliness is available on the Data Resource Page.
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT005
We propose a three-dimensional imaging approach based on digital holography. Our approach is based on frequency diversity using a single chirped pulse instead of a train of pulses with different frequencies. Our approach promises to mitigate most of the issues limiting the performance of current methods and offer additional enabling capabilities that will improve target identification and tracking ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force

Target tracking and aimpoint maintenance are critical functions within a laser directed energy system. Traditionally, the optical sensor is a conventional camera viewing an actively illuminated target. In the absence of turbulence, it is still difficult to point the laser weapon to a specific hit spot when there are no features in the required direction. Further, atmospheric turbulence scintillate ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT006
Tau Technologies is teaming with Dr. David Voelz and his research group at New Mexico State University (NMSU) to propose â€œVibration Imaging for the characterization of extended non-cooperative targetsâ€�, which employs dual-pulses in two different variations for vibration imaging in order to characterize non-cooperative targets at extended standoffs. One method is based on double-pulse ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: EXCITING TECHNOLOGY LLC Topic: AF19AT006
The imaging vibrometer development will be based on a representative Directed Energy (DE) aperture assumed to be 30 cm. This effort will provide both DE and Combat IDentification (CID), modes for relative short range DE operations, and an ISR Combat IDentification (CID) mode for operation at extended range. A combination of analytic derivations and wave optics simulations will be used to define a ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: Guidestar Optical Systems, Inc. Topic: AF19AT006
Locating objects that vibrate is a way to discern potential threats and locate targets. However, current vibrometry technology typically measures only the global vibration of target and cannot create an extended spatial measurement of the vibration profile of the target. These solutions cannot identify what the target is, nor can they locate potential weak spots on the target, because they lack sp ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: TAU TECHNOLOGIES LLC Topic: AF19AT007
Efficient design, build, and test of an HEL system leverages modeling and simulation (M&S) to reduce cost and increase robustness. Designers use models to explore parameter variations and to estimate performance in conditions which cannot be tested due to physical or financial constraints. This provides significant savings in cost and time. Because live testing is so expensive, it is best used as ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: STELLAR SCIENCE LTD. CO. Topic: AF19AT007
We will deliver a new software architecture for scene generation named the Realistic Image and Neighborhood Generator (RING). Instead of being tied to a single tool, RING will provide interfaces suitable for a wide variety of image and scene rendering tools to run and interact with other codes. As an initial implementation of the interfaces, we will incorporate Stellar Scienceâ€™s powerful, f ...STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: XL SCIENTIFIC LLC Topic: AF17CT05
This effort seeks verification tools and techniques to ensure safety and stability of spacecraft Guidance, Navigation, and Control (GN&C) algorithms, particularly the attitude control system integrated with autonomy software. Advanced control algorithms and autonomy are increasingly necessary to enable responsiveness of fleets of vehicles to attitude constraints and object avoidance. Verus Researc ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: OPTO-KNOWLEDGE SYSTEMS INC Topic: AF19AT011
New, innovative laser spectroscopy technology will be developed for performance quantification and combustion characterization in a Rotational Detonation Rocket Engine (RDRE). The effort will push the state of the art in tunable laser absorption spectroscopy to enable fast time response diagnostics of the extreme pressure and temperature conditions of an RDRE.STTR Phase I 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
SBC: DYNAMIC SYSTEMS & RESEARCH CORP Topic: AF18AT012
The development and implementation of new damage morphology models for concrete materials is critical to understanding their dynamic behavior during severe shock loading environments. Current constitutive models of conventional strength concretes do not accurately represent the behavioral characteristics of new ultra-high strength concretes because of differences in damage mechanisms during failur ...STTR Phase II 2019 Department of DefenseAir Force
