Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N161-034
Budget: 08/17/16 - 02/13/18

Submarine applications for antennas are severely constricted by mission constraints for stealth and force protection. High fidelity fiber optic links could potentially open a new range of mission capabilities by enabling towed antenna arrays that could be accessed while submerged. However, to date RF photonic links have had insufficient noise pe...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Delaware

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF15-AT26
Budget: 09/30/15 - 09/30/16

ABSTRACT: Under the proposed effort, PSI will leverage a novel pmmW imaging technology developed under a prior Navy program to realize the low size, weight, and power sensors required for UAV implementation. ?This technology is based on an optical upconverted distributed aperture technology that can make use of the full aperture of the aircraft ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-073
Budget: 09/08/15 - 03/02/16

The Army often operates in environments with limited visibility, due to smoke, dust, fog, or other visual obscurants, resulting in loss of situational awareness. In some circumstances, the Army may create such environments to provide a tactical advantage over adversaries. In these situations it is necessary to supplement visual data with reliabl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-142
Budget: 07/23/15 - 10/24/17

ABSTRACT:In this phase II effort we will commercialize the high speed, high power, modified uni-traveling carrier (MUTC) photodiodes (PDs). To this end, we will develop reliable packaging solutions for discrete PDs, PD arrays, balanced PDs and waveguide based PDs. We will also transition the chip fabrication process for continuous, high volume s...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N151-076
Budget: 07/06/15 - 05/06/16

Electronically steered antenna arrays capable of forming multiple beams enable tracking and concurrent sensing of multiple, spatially diverse targets, thus providing significant advantage over dish antennas that have fixed, narrow beam patterns. To address the needs of the DoD, such antenna arrays must demonstrate high gain, low noise figure, an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-040
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Herein, PSI proposes to leverage extensive development in the area of optically sampled passive millimeter-wave imaging to develop dual mode active/passive imagers that provide both the intuitive, real-time imagery of a passive imager and the ranging capabilities of an active sensor. To accomplish this task, an optically sampled millimeter-wave ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A15-070
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

Degraded visual environment (DVE) presents a challenge for helicopter pilotage, particularly in close proximity to potential hazards such as vegetation, poles, wires, buildings, vehicles, personnel, equipment, nearby terrain, other aircraft, or ship superstructures. To safely negotiate these hazards, the aircrew must maintain a continuous awaren...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N142-100
Budget: 09/29/14 - 03/30/15

In this SBIR effort we will develop and analyze (Phase I) a new design and packaging approach for an ultra-compact, dual-output wideband Mach-Zehnder modulator (MZM) for low noise figure (NF) and high dynamic range radio-frequency (RF) photonic link applications. We will provide (Phase I) experimental proof-of-concept of the proposed device by t...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-142
Budget: 08/30/13 - 05/30/14

ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to >60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and arr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A13-040
Budget: 08/01/13 - 02/01/14

Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased arra...
