Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Florida

Agency: Army
Topic: A16A-T011
Budget: 07/21/16 - 02/21/17
PI: John Kirk

Goleta Star and the University of Florida (UFL) will jointly develop Nadir SAR 3D imaging capability from a Circular SAR orbit that can be transitioned into selected Army applications, primarily existing single-channel radars. Both Goleta and UFL have 3D imaging background and relevant capability that will jointly feed into the desired imaging ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A152-093
Budget: 12/22/15 - 05/21/16
PI: John Kirk

High-voltage power lines present hazardous operating conditions for the helicopters especially when the pilot vision is degraded by obscurants such as dust, smoke, fog, rain, and snow. The power lines are subtle objects for the pilot in the cockpit to see, not to mention when visibility gets bad such as in the cases of operating at night and und...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-145
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: John Kirk

ABSTRACT:The Goleta Star team proposes to develop innovative waveforms and exploitation algorithms for concurrent synthetic aperture radar (SAR) and ground moving target indication (GMTI) in contested A2AD environments. ?In Phase I we will evolve the detailed design of the radar waveforms and processing such that in Phase 2 we can demonstrate th...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-033
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: John Kirk

The Goleta team proposes to develop a multi-channel dual-band SAR GMTI radar for potential UAS application. In Phase I we will evolve the detailed design of the radar such that in Phase 2 we can build a flyable prototype of the system for the collection of relevant SAR GMTI data. Goleta has been designing and flite testing small Ka-band SAR G...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-179
Budget: 01/06/11 - 10/06/11
PI: John Kirk

AFRL-WPAFB has initiated various programs to better understand the coherent information in SAR data. The current effort is intended to further this objective by developing algorithms to detect dismounts in SAR imagery that are acquired via: i) subaperture monostatic and along-track bistatic monopulse SAR data from a single pass; ii) subaperture ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-148
Budget: 03/18/10 - 06/22/12
PI: John Kirk

The Goleta Star LLC team proposes to develop improved change detection algorithms that are well suited to applications that use persistent RF sensors for detecting, tracking, locating, and identifying targets in urban areas. We plan to develop advanced change detection algorithms that specifically address both IED s and moving targets in urban ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-021
Budget: 04/22/09 - 07/30/11

There is a pressing need for both ground based and small UAV applications for low-cost and high-efficiency MMW 2-D AESA capability, interlaced with a dual lower frequency aperture. This combination will enable both communications and radar from the same aperture. Goleta Star LLC with support from Quinstar and Academia will develop a low-cost l...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF073-069
Budget: 04/21/09 - 07/30/11

The Goleta Star LLC team proposes to develop advanced capability for feature-aided tracking, detection and ID of Moving Targets, vehicles and dismounts, using SAR. In Phase I we developed coherent moving target detection algorithms using an along track monopulse SAR system, and demonstrated the merits of these algorithms with the X-band GOTCHA ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A07-115
Budget: 02/27/09 - 02/27/11

Goleta Star LLC with support from Quinstar and Academia will develop a low-cost lite-weight W-band ESA. The approach is based upon a novel architecture, and will provide E-scan in two dimensions. It is scalable to other frequencies and larger apertures. It is particularly attractive at W-band where component technology is still relatively exp...
