Phase 2 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T026
Budget: 12/18/09 - 12/18/12

Frequency Agile Laser sensor has shown great promise in standoff detection of chemical and biological agents in the long wave infrared (LWIR) portion of the spectrum through several field trials in recent years. The fact that it is now possible to perform

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-004
Budget: 06/29/09 - 06/28/11

The South Bay Science and Technology Corp (SBSTC), teamed with Raytheon proposes Advanced Heat Rejection Methods for Space Cryocoolers Phase II Program to design, fabricate, and test of an advanced High Capacity Expander, incorporating the advanced heat rejection techniques derived in Phase I. The objective of this Phase II Program is to develo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-095
Budget: 04/20/09 - 01/18/11
PI: Kin Hui

The South Bay Science and Technology Corp (SBSTC), teamed with Raytheon, proposes a cryogenic system concept utilizing all low cost space-qualified elements to yield a Low Cost Space Cryocooler System (LCSCS) for space-based launch and boost phase detection and tracking sensor applications. To satisfy the projected two-stage cryocooling require...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-017
Budget: 03/27/09 - 09/27/09

The objective of the All SiC Telescope Cryo-Test program (ASTCT) is to validate the optical performance of the Silicon Carbide Telescope for STSS (SCATS) near 120K. The off-axis, relayed, afocal telescope has an F/0.5 primary mirror and is equivalent to the current beryllium STSS fore optics. The SiC mirrors and structure are made by the Chemica...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: SRI International

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-T026
Budget: 08/07/08 - 02/07/09

The program addresses algorithm development in critical areas that have received little or no attention in the past, including mixtures of chemical vapors, single and mixed chemical aerosols, mixtures of bio aerosols, and mixtures of chemical vapors. New approaches based on parallel extraction of material spectral dependence of the material in p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF081-095
Budget: 06/16/08 - 06/18/09

Future space based systems will require cryogenic subsystems that are substantially more efficient than those presently in use. Projected requirements for space-based launch and boost phase detection and tracking sensors are 10 W in the 70-110 K range and 20 W in the 160-180 K range. The cryogenic cooling system must also be low in exported vib...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA07-004
Budget: 02/13/08 - 08/13/09

Future space EO systems will require cryogenic subsystems that are substantially more powerful than those presently in use. Input power levels are expected to increase by a factor of 2X to 4X, necessitating changes from the payload level down to the cryocooler subsystem level. Payload-level changes involve the inclusion of more robust power bu...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD06-103
Budget: 05/30/07 - 05/19/09

The Phase I tasks for optimized receiver development were successfully accomplished and point to a Phase II program with emphasis on detector and electronics development for the long wave infrared. Detector types to be further investigated and developed include the single chip photovoltaic HgCdTe, hybrid detector/preamplifier, and avalanche phot...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-116
Budget: 09/12/06 - 09/12/08

The phase II objective is to develop and deliver an integrated high power FAL CO2 laser. The approach is based on the Phase I effort that resulted in the evaluation of various transmitters for combined chemical and biological agent detection and discrimination. The single CO2 TEA laser operating in the 9-11 Ým band was found to be superior to a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD06-103
Budget: 05/05/06 - 11/05/06

The objective of the program is to demonstrate novel methods for achieving significant improvement in sensitivity of the active standoff chemical sensor operating in the 3-5 m and 10 m bands. Emphasis will be placed on photon detection improvement including reduction of background radiation and preamplifier noise reduction. Detector arrays wil...
