Electro-Optic and Infrared Situational Awareness Display

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-110
Budget: 11/26/13 - 05/26/14
PI: Dr. Mikhail Belenkii

Human-computer interaction and the display of infrared imagery and electro-optic-sensor data require an improved interface to enhance the situational awareness of the modern warfighter. Current displays, while providing important data, saddle the warfighter with various handicaps. They reduce situational awareness by blocking a portion of the se...

Ground radiometer to characterize V and W band satellite link propagation loss

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-045
Budget: 07/18/13 - 04/17/14
PI: Vladimir Kolinko

ABSTRACT: Trex Enterprises proposes a method for monitoring atmospheric loss of Earth-to-satellite signals in the V and W bands using only a passive ground-based sensor. The sensor measures the radiometric sky temperature in sub-bands between 66-86 GHz at a sample of elevation angles. A Monte Carlo photon tracing algorithm calculates anticipat...

Biomimicry Based Azimuth Sensing

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-029
Budget: 05/30/13 - 05/30/15
PI: Dr. Mikhail Belenkii

Current technology for weapon azimuth measurements during training exercises is limited by excessive weight, size, cost, power consumption, limited IMU accuracy and the need for extensive calibration. A miniature lightweight azimuth sensing device is proposed based upon detection of the sky polarization pattern. The proposed device falls into ...

Low Maintenance Low Cost Magnetically Actuated Valves

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N102-160
Budget: 03/19/13 - 03/19/14
PI: Dr. Edward Davis

Modern warships contain thousands of valves for purposes as diverse as freshwater distribution, wastewater, firefighting, cooling water, ballast control, bilge, fuel, hydraulics and more. These valves entail significant maintenance burdens requiring crew members' time, spare parts, and removing important systems from service while maintenance an...

Affordable, Ultra-stable CVC SiC UVOIR Telescope for BENI Mission

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-E3.02
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13
PI: Bill Goodman

Working with our System Integrator partner (ITT-Exelis) and Richard Lyon (NASA/GSFC Principal Investigator Compact Achromatic Visible Nulling Coronagraph Technology Maturation) and his telescope expert Lee Feinberg, Trex will perform a preliminary design of a 1-meter aperture, ultrastable, UVOIR telescope made using Trex Chemical Vapor Composite...

Increased 3D Virtual Image Opaqueness and Contrast Resolution in Optical See-Through Head Mounted Displays

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-114
Budget: 09/26/12 - 09/24/14
PI: Dr. Mikhail Belenkii

Mixed-augmented reality displayed via a head-mounted display (HMD) provides a new paradigm for military training. Soldiers may train in real environments but interact with virtual enemy combatants and material that are generated in software. However, a major issue is that virtual objects are often simply superposed over the background scene, a...

Head Worn Display (HWD) Augmented Reality for Military Training Applications

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-085
Budget: 05/07/12 - 03/08/13
PI: Dr. Mikhail Belenkii

The augmented reality head worn display (HWD) that can superimpose computer generated information on an individual s view of the real world has the potential to revolutionize military training. Currently, the use of augmented reality technologies in dismounted applications in the form of HMD has several principal limitations: small field-of view...
