  1. NIIRS 9 Small Unmanned Aircraft System (SUAS) 5-Inch Gimbal

    SBC: TRILLIUM ENGINEERING LLC            Topic: AF171119

    Trillium has recently demonstrated the capability to capture NIIRS 9 imagery including the ability to read a license plate from up to 1800 slant range in their 8 diameter HD80 gimbal. This proposal includes an effort to miniaturize Trilliums exi

  3. InGaAs Focal-plane Arrays for Coherent Ladar

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF171129

    A 64 x 64-format InGaAs short-wavelength-infrared (SWIR) focal-plane array (FPA) consisting of pixel elements sized 40 microns or smaller, with near 100% fill factor and high quantum efficiency (QE) in the 1 1.7-micron spectral range will be developed

  4. Inferring Mission Perils using Aggregate Cube Thresholds (IMPACT)

    SBC: Nextgen Federal Systems LLC            Topic: AF151041

    Historically, the inclusion of weather advice within ongoing planning has relied largely on a time consuming process of mental fusion of various information sources from disconnected systems. The application of weather advice on a near real-time ba

  5. Medium Voltage Direct Current (MVDC) Grounding System

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: N16AT012

    During the Phase 1 effort, there were several achievements toward the design of grounding systems for MVDC architectures. For one, the common-mode equivalent circuit (CMEC) modeling approach that was derived at Purdue under ESRDC funding, was validated in a reduced-scale hardware setup at Purdue. The system studied consisted of a single generator, active rectifier, inverter, and propulsion machine ...

  6. High Performance Switched Reluctance Generator Controller

    SBC: Continuous Solutions LLC            Topic: A15087

    The Switch Reluctance Machine (SRM) is known to be subject to inherent excessive vibration and acoustic noise. A closed-loop control technique was developed in the Phase I to eliminate torque harmonics produced by a generic SRM. To provide vibratory feedback, a piezoelectric-based sensor is incorporated into an SRM drive system to sense the torque harmonics in real time. The control system has bee ...

  7. Hybrid Lidar/Radar Sensor for Improved Mine Detection

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N162113

    A hybrid lidar/radar (HLR) sensor will be developed that enables hybrid lidar-radar underwater ranging to enhance target detection in underwater environments. The method is based on the use of an optically carried radio frequency (RF) signal in order to benefit from both the directivity of the optical beam (lidar), and the accuracy of RF signal processing (radar). To demonstrate the benefits of HL ...

  8. Demonstration of High-dynamic-range Lidar Focal Plane Array

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: N162112

    A linear 256-element silicon-photodetector focal plane array (FPA) will be tested and characterized, before being integrated with camera electronics and tested. The FPA will be shown to have at least 6 bits of dynamic range beyond the existing lidar sensors used in airborne lidar systems for underwater mine detection. The ability to accommodate glint, while maintaining sensitivity will also be dem ...

  9. Adaptive-Zoom Weapon Scope with Integral Ranging, Tracking and Fire Control

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: A15095

    A compact, lightweight, direct-view variable-magnification fire-control riflescope with integral programmable aiming system will be developed, which includes: a 1550-nm eyesafe laser rangefinder (LRF), 9-axis inertial measurement unit with integrated environmental sensors and ballistic computer, and a real-time direct-view heads-up display (HUD) disturbed reticle. The proposed system will be demon ...

  10. Additive Manufacturing Plastic Materials with Improved Dielectric Breakdown Strength

    SBC: VOXTEL, INC.            Topic: AF15AT07

    In this Phase II program, Voxtel will design, manufacture, and benchmark-test additive-manufactured (AM) insulators capable of electrical stress greater than 25 kV/mm, for use in high-electric-field applications, such as high-power microwave (HPM) devices. These insulators will sustain vacuum of 10-7 Torr and withstand 20 psi of pressure. To achieve this goal, Voxtel will synthesize readily additi ...
