Research Institution

QuantaSpec, Inc., proposes to produce a highly efficient, compact, personnel-worn combat ID beacon visible to a large variety of overhead imaging pods. Multiple incidents of fratricide have highlighted the need for improved combat ID and Identify Friend or Foe (IFF) technology. Recent advances in emitter technology have enabled a new class of signaling device to become practical. QuantaSpec, Inc., proposes to exploit a new class of photonic crystal emitter in combination with already developed laser diode and/or LED technology to produce a micro combat ID beacon capable of fulfilling this role. Future development could provide encrypted, low-power communications. BENEFITS: This project will produce a more efficient, compact, long duration, highly visible beacon for combat ID purposes. Additional military benefits include tagging, tracking and locating, and combat search and rescue (CSAR) roles. Commercial roles include land, sea, and air search and rescue.
