Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-112
Budget: 03/01/07 - 07/01/09

During the Phase-I research we only spent 6 months (not 9 months) an air droppable rolling weight deflectormeter (ADRWD) was built and a conceptual demo at a small airport was successfully conducted. The Phase-II main objective is to refine the Phase-I design and build a lightweight working ADRWD prototype that can accurately measure the runway ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-112
Budget: 04/25/06 - 08/25/07

The deployment of US military forces often requires aircraft operations on runways of unknown construction, roughness, and load carrying capacities not only in UAS but also in foreign countries. Current FWD, DCP and RWD cannot satisfy the mission requirement. The air force is looking for an air droppable lighter weight RWD that can rapidly colle...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A03-137
Budget: 12/09/03 - 06/08/04

Currently, people use man-operated heavyweight deflectometer to detect the void under runway and use large cone penetrometer to measure the soil stiffness. It is expensive, slow, and destructive. During the wartime, the operator will involve the risk from enemy¡_s land mine, sniper, and artillery attacks. In this proposal, a very innovative re...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM01-005
Budget: 10/07/03 - 07/07/05

Traditionally the Air Force Special Operations Forces (AFSOF) physically measures assault zone characteristics such as physical dimensions, magnetic orientation, coordinates, obstacles, elevation, weight-bearing capacity of the soil, soil composition, surface tolerances, clearances, and roughness, terminal navigation aid suitability, etc. It is ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM01-005
Budget: 03/12/02 - 09/15/02

In order to meet the remote runway survey system requirement, by using many cutting edge technologies, a very innovative system is proposed. The remote runway survey includes 4 steps (or the survey system consists of 4 subsystems). In the first step, we will use Remote Sensing Pictures (RSP) from satellite and airplane to roughly determin...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-179
Budget: 10/22/01 - 04/22/02

In order to overcome the short distance (it is critical for seeker) and high cost problems of the dual-mode imager using UFPA and fully meet the task requirement, very innovative ideas and designs are proposed: 1. By using a smaller UFPA format of 240x320/25 u and adding an immersed detector lens on it, the detection distance can be increased ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM00-003
Budget: 05/11/01 - 10/11/02

Special Operations Forces is looking for assault zone marking systems to facilitate instrument approaches of fixed and rotary wing aircraft under extremely low ceiling/visibility conditions (200' ceiling/0.5 mile visibility). After successfully finishing the phase-I project, in this phase-II effort, we will concentrate on the whole assault zone ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM00-003
Budget: 04/24/00 - 10/24/00

Special Operations Forces is looking for assault zone marking systems to facilitate instrument approaches of fixed and rotary wing aircraft under extremely low ceiling/visibility (LCN) conditions (200' ceiling/0.5 mile visibility). In this proposal, very innovative system and components designs are presented to fully realize above goal. Our inno...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM99-004
Budget: 12/09/99 - 06/08/00

In order to combine the NIR and LWIR sensors together and eliminate the parallax between them, two innovative single aperture configurations are proposed: the first one will use an uniquely designed broad band non-Ge objective with a FOV of 54x42 as the common aperture, and the second one will use a beam splitter as the common aperture then us...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-144
Budget: 06/12/97 - 06/12/99

Fire creates smoke and dust. Their particles bloke firefighter's view because the particles scatter visible light (wavelength less than 1u). However, fire also creates infrared radiation with wavelength longer than 1u which will not be scattered by smoke and dust. Therefore it can be detected by an IR detector. In this proposal, a passive IR...
