Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-001
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Soldiers and Marines manning the Objective Gunner Protection Kit (OGPK) need an accurate, real-time notification system to detect small-arms threat locations even in complex firefight environments involving multiple shooters, different weapons (single fire to full automatic, silenced guns, subsonic bullets), background detonations and explosions...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 14-1-T8.02
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Lightning discharges within or near critical facilities can disrupt activities or result in damage. Although existing lightning locating systems can geolocate breakdown processes with accuracies of 10s of meters at heights above 1.5-2 km, they do not accurately report ground strike locations or provide estimates of current and charge transfer. I...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-136
Budget: 08/22/13 - 08/25/15

ABSTRACT: In this program, QFS proposes to develop and demonstrate a miniature VHF direction finding (DF) system integrated on a small unmanned aircraft system (SUAS) platform. This DF system will feature an antenna developed under our Phase I program that is suitable for signal reception in the VHF frequency band. We will integrate this anten...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: OSD11-H11
Budget: 05/21/13 - 10/24/15

In 2010 tinnitus became the most common service-related disability among veterans, with disability benefit costs projected to exceed $2.26 billion by 2014. Methods for objective diagnosis of tinnitus are currently nonexistent and direly needed by the military. QUASAR and Otosound are partnering on this SBIR project to develop an efficient a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-001
Budget: 07/18/12 - 01/18/13

Soldiers and Marines manning the Objective Gunner Protection Kit (OGPK) need an accurate, real-time notification system to detect small-arms threat locations even in complex firefight environments involving multiple shooters, different weapons (single fire to full automatic, silenced guns, subsonic bullets), background detonations and explosions...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-136
Budget: 04/19/12 - 01/24/13

ABSTRACT: The US Air Force has a continuing need for a VHF-band direction finding system suitable for deployment onboard Small Unmanned Aircraft Systems (SUAS) such as the RQ-7 Shadow. However, traditional direction finding techniques used in this band present a significant challenge for the SUAS class of platforms due to the large antennas req...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Health Program
Topic: OSD11-H11
Budget: 02/02/12 - 09/01/12

Tinnitus is an auditory perception in the absence of an external source of sound that occurs in 50 million people in the U.S., a quarter of whom suffer severely enough to seek medical attention. Chronic subjective tinnitus is most often caused by hearing impairment due to aging or explosive noise trauma. In 2010 tinnitus became the most common s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM06-017
Budget: 09/22/11 - 09/22/12

The proposed Phase II SBIR Program aims to develop and test a compact, integrated system suitable for conducting RF direction finding (DF) and geolocation in near-real time from a small airborne platform. QUASAR Federal Systems will produce a system suitable for integration into Unmanned Aircraft Systems as small as a MEUAS (e.g., Boeing ScanEa...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: San Diego State University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N11A-T012
Budget: 08/15/11 - 03/15/12

Existing technologies for geolocation of RF emitters have significant size and weight limitations, restricting their use on small UAV platforms. Quasar Federal Systems (QFS) has developed a method of geolocation using very small antennas; this method is based on measurement of the Poynting vector. The QFS antenna is isotropic, compact, and accur...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB111-004
Budget: 04/21/11 - 12/20/11

The US Army has a need for a radio transmitter location system that can be deployed in a tactical situation to enable the detection and geolocation of VHF/UHF handheld transceivers in real time. Use of conventional radio direction finding (DF) approaches to cover the two decades in frequency required by the solicitation (VHF+UHF) will necessitat...
