Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Fordham University

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T017
Budget: 06/30/11 - 06/27/12

This proposal aims to develop and demonstrate a novel fused sensor system capable of detecting bullets in real time and over a 360o field-of-view. The bullet detection is based on a retrodirective noise-correlating radar that also provides the bullet bearing in real time. The bearing information will be transformed into a track through space w...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Fordham University

Agency: Army
Topic: A09A-T017
Budget: 08/20/09 - 02/17/10

Retrodirective pseudorandom-noise-correlating radar has already been demonstrated on small ballistic targets, such as sniper bullets. And detection occurs with enough range (a few tens of meters) to acquire bearing information (rangebin, azimuth, and elevation) and therefore develop a track in near-real-time. What is lacking is the connection ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-033
Budget: 09/08/06 - 09/06/08

During the Phase II effort our primary objective is to demonstrate the X-band retrodirective noise correlating (RNC) radar out to approximately 200 yards on targets having an RCS of about ~30 dBsm (50-caliber bullet end-on) or greater. This will require a dual-mode operation: a noise radar mode and a retrodirective mode. The target will be ini...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A05-033
Budget: 12/10/05 - 05/09/06

This project entails the design and demonstration of a X-band retrodirective noise-correlating (RNC) radar designed specifically for bullet detection and shooter geolocation. Preliminary research carried out for the DoD (U.S. Army Research Office and DARPA) of such a system has already demonstrated that ultrafast detection and tracking of a bul...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Institute of Standards and Technology
Topic: 2004
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

A new type of THz photomixer will be developed using a submicron interdigitated-electrode structure fabricated on an Eras:GaAs ultrafast photoconductive layer, an AIAs heat spreader and an AIGas/AIAs dielecric mirror. The Eras:GaAs-based photomixer will provide extremely wide tuning bandwidth (>1 decade) and a continuous-wave output power of rou...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY02-T002
Budget: 09/15/03 - 09/14/05

The Phase-I effort has produced three key results as the foundation for the Phase-II proposal. First, vector network analyzer measurements of a Bacillus subtillis (an Anthrax surrogate) sample has yielded promising absorption signatures around 425 and 445 GHz. These are believed to be the most accurate measurements ever made of an Anthrax-like...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Jet Propulsion Laboratory

Agency: Army
Topic: ARMY02-T002
Budget: 09/23/02 - 03/22/03

Recent measurements of the electromagnetic transmission through bacillus subtillus, an anthrax facsimile, have revealed absorption resonances in the THz region. A system-level analysis previously carried out by the proposer has shown that at least one of the resonances (centered at 14.05 cm-1, or 421 GHz) is located at a frequency of low enou...
