Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-099
Budget: 07/24/14 - 09/13/15

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new forward looking infrared imaging system that can actively mitigate thermal loading associated with munitions flight speeds greater than Mach 5. Excessive thermal loading causes the viewing domes to emit a high background radiance, which saturates the sensor and reduces the signal-to-noise...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT03
Budget: 07/23/14 - 10/07/16

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-101
Budget: 07/17/14 - 09/30/15

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a wide-field-of-view (WFOV) multimode seeker with one mode being multi-waveband passive infrared imaging, and the second mode being a semi-active laser (SAL). The multimode system is required because of the continued need for military operations to be conducted in difficult urban environments we...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-101
Budget: 07/24/13 - 04/22/14

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a wide-field-of-view (WFOV) multimode seeker with one mode being multi-waveband passive infrared imaging, and the second mode being a semi-active laser (SAL).

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-099
Budget: 06/17/13 - 03/28/14

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new forward looking infrared imaging system that can actively mitigate thermal loading associated with munitions flight speeds greater than Mach 5. Excessive thermal loading causes the viewing domes to emit a high background radiance, which reduces the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) of the senso...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of Arizona

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF12-BT03
Budget: 02/19/13 - 11/19/13

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV) imaging sensors that sample the radiation field in multiple modes: spectral, temporal, polarization, and detailed object shape. These multimodal sensors are to be deployed on high altitude drones to enhance their intelligence, surveillance, an...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-103
Budget: 12/21/12 - 03/31/15

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to improve stray light rejection and reduce the solar exclusion angle for space-based optical sensors tasked with star tracking navigation and with detecting and tracking multiple satellites. The Spectral Imaging Laboratory (SPILAB) proposes the development of artificial compound eye (ACE)optics with an in...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-101
Budget: 10/31/12 - 01/31/15

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV), dual band infrared sensor that can be deployed on Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA), missile seekers and smart munitions. The Spectral Imaging Laboratory (SPILAB) proposes the development of a 120° WFOV, forward looking artificial compound eye (A...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF112-101
Budget: 10/15/11 - 07/15/12

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new class of advanced, wide field of view (WFOV), dual band infrared sensors that can be deployed on Remotely Piloted Aircraft (RPA) as well as micro-air vehicles (MAVs), missile seekers and smart munitions. The Spectral Imaging Laboratory (SPILAB)proposes the development of a 120° field-of-v...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-132
Budget: 10/15/11 - 01/15/14

ABSTRACT: The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop small and agile strapdown (no-gimbal), wide-field-of-view (WFOV) seekers capable of precision guidance within cluttered urban environments. The Spectral Imaging Laboratory (SPILAB) proposes the development of both long wavelength infrared (LWIR) and middle wavelength infrared (MWIR) artificial c...
