Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Princeton University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N15A-T011
Budget: 07/20/15 - 01/16/16
PI: Jie Yao

In order to provide performance capabilities well above those of individual independent sensors, future naval sensors will be networked throughout a battle group based on the real time knowledge of the precise relative distances and relative velocities between ships. One possible means to obtain and monitor such position and velocity in real tim...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Utah State University

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: T8.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 06/17/16
PI: Jie Yao

We propose to develop a Photon-Counting Integrated Circuit (PCIC) mega-pixel focal plane array (FPA) imager with highest sensitivity, lowest noise and hence highest signal-to-noise ratio (S/N) among all imagers covering the shortwave infrared band, and to incorporate the prototype PCIC imager into a prototype imaging spectroscopy CAMM instrument...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-024
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15
PI: Jie Yao

During Phase II, we will prototype the PCIC imager; characterize its dark count rate, quantum efficiency, gain, crosstalk, bandwidth, jitter, etc., as a function of the bias voltages and temperatures; perform environmental testing including operating temperature, vibration and thermal testing; compare between design specifications, model, simula...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N111-003
Budget: 01/15/14 - 07/14/15
PI: Jie Yao

Military common laser range finders (CLRF) currently use a direct viewing binocular augmented with AN/PVS night vision eye pieces with infrared cutoff at about 900 nm, incapable of detecting either the eye-safe laser range finder beam or the laser designator beam. The CLRF needs an all-light-level day-and-night visible to Short-Wave-Infrared (SW...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Utah State University Research Foundation - SDL

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-T8.03
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14
PI: Jie Yao

Development of the CESI focal plane and optics technology will lead to miniaturized hyperspectral and SWIR-band spectral imaging instrumentation compatible with CubeSat and other nanosat platforms. The project will implement the technology by developing a CubeSat-compatible SEMM instrument for global mapping of atmospheric methane concentration...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-018
Budget: 03/07/13 - 03/13/15
PI: Jie Yao

ABSTRACT: Currently fielded night vision goggles intensify images in an integrated components train comprising a photo cathode, a multi-channel plate for amplification, and a phosphor screen. A purely semiconductor-based night vision device with higher performance, longer lifetime and lower cost is desirable. Built upon proven semiconductor nan...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Utah State University Research Foundation - SDL

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT02
Budget: 02/06/13 - 11/15/13
PI: Jie Yao

ABSTRACT: Remote sensing of surface vibration is an important modality of measures and signals intelligence (MASINT) with a wide range of military applications including target discrimination, clutter rejection, analysis of engine signatures, and seismic detection of buried threats. Other applications of remote vibrometry include remote acousti...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Space Dynamics Laboratory

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-1-T8.03
Budget: 01/01/13 - 12/31/13

The Conjugate Etalon Spectral Imaging (CESI) concept enables the development of miniature instruments with high spectral resolution, suitable for LEO missions aboard CubeSat or nanosat buses, including constellation missions providing global coverage and characterization of dynamic phenomena. Small size, low power, and a simplified instrument a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N122-116
Budget: 11/07/12 - 05/14/13
PI: Jie Yao

Lasercom, namely, free-space optical (FSO) communication, has many advantages over the traditional RF communication channels widely used in military communications. Some notable advantages of lasercom are no need for licensing for frequency allocation, immunity to radio frequency interference, and low probability of interception and detection. T...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-004
Budget: 08/21/12 - 02/21/13
PI: Jie Yao

An ever-changing battlefield poses a growing threat of small arm hostile fire for our ground troops, ground vehicles and low-flying airborne platforms. High performance and low cost hostile fire indicator (HFI) solutions are needed to protect both stationary posts and moving military platforms. Small firearm and mortar muzzle flash emits much ul...
