Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T001
Budget: 12/10/09 - 12/10/11

Two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic storage is promising for updatable 3D display applications. In Phase I, New Span Opto-Technology has demonstrated novel concepts of both holographic recording technique and recording mate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N091-053
Budget: 07/16/09 - 01/27/10
PI: Sam Sun

To address the U.S. Navy¡¦s solicitation for shipboard compliant high energy storage system, New Span Opto-Technology Inc. proposes to develop Advanced Hybrid Electrochemical Energy Storage (AESES) technology. The AESES is comprised of a foamed aluminum oxide ceramics anode and a conductive polymer cathode. The anode is made highly porous for hi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB082-046
Budget: 01/05/09 - 08/30/09

Multispectral/hyperspectral imaging is a technique that acquires and analyzes both spectral and spatial information. It provides the potential for more accurate and detailed information extraction than possible with those conventional imaging techniques. Spectral imaging sensors have applications in various military and commercial fields includi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A08-054
Budget: 10/20/08 - 04/20/09

Wide field-of-view imaging sensors with high spatial and spectral resolution ability have extensive applications in military and commercial fields. Current methodology of employing FLIR or video imaging sensors to search and acquire potential targets is time consuming since the operator must continuously scan the area of interest in a wide view ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Miami

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-T001
Budget: 09/25/08 - 06/28/09

Mapping awareness of battlefield is increasingly valuable for many military mission planning and activities, particularly in complex urban and mountainous terrain. Currently available two-dimensional (2D) visualization techniques have limit capacity to achieve understanding of full dimensionality of the battlefield. Rewritable 3D holographic sto...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N08-022
Budget: 04/01/08 - 10/01/08

Digital reference imagery and mapping data are being extensively used for strike and mission planning, providing precise terrain positioning knowledge to the avionic objects to avoid obstacles or generate aim points. However, the digital files of these geodata are as large as petabytes or terabytes. Ultra-high data storage capacity and fast diss...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-024
Budget: 02/26/08 - 10/20/08

Optical feedback into semiconductor lasers can have detrimental effects to laser stability. Optical isolators with high forward transmission and very low return are used to ensure laser stability. Conventional optical isolators including fiber coupled ones consist of a Faraday rotator, a permanent magnet, and other optical components. They work ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB072-025
Budget: 02/14/08 - 10/29/08

Wide field-of-view (FOV) imaging sensors with high resolution ability have significant applications in military and commercial fields. Current methodology of employing FLIR or video imaging sensors to search and acquire potential targets is time and power consuming since continuous scanning in a wide FOV and zooming in a local interest area is p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 2008
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Multispectral imaging sensors are needed to identify activities and connections associated with proliferation of weapons of mass destruction. Electronically tunable optical filters enable multispectral imaging with no moving parts. However, for some applications such as transient events or moving targets, current filters do not provide sufficien...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 08-1
Budget: 01/01/08 - 12/31/08

Laser rangefinders have numerous NASA and non-NASA applications, including navigation, landing hazard avoidance, automated rendezvous and docking, air and missile defense, infantry and artillery target designating, tank and infantry fighting vehicle fire controlling, surveillance through foliage, cloud-height measurement, and production monitori...
