Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 31 G-2011
Budget: 01/01/11 - 12/31/11

Atmospheric particles act to cool the Earth by reflecting incoming solar radiation if they are small (e.g., aerosols), and they can either warm or cool the earth through thermal absorption and emission if they are large (e.g., cirrus) depending upon their altitude. Climate change monitoring and modeling have improved significantly from advances ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-015
Budget: 04/12/07 - 10/12/07

Visidyne proposes a novel fiber optic sensor to measure the elongation of steam catapults used by the Navy for launching aircraft. The sensor, originally developed by Visidyne for use in environments found in and around jet aircraft engines, is completely passive at the measurement point and so can operate in very harsh, high temperature enviro...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: MDA04-169
Budget: 07/24/06 - 01/24/12

Visidyne has identified two new and innovative concepts for reducing false alarms in Overhead Non-imaging InfraRed (ONIR) surveillance systems. We propose to conduct system and engineering trade studies to provide a basis for selecting one or both of these concepts for future system upgrades. Initial simulations for both concepts show potential ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-149
Budget: 06/12/06 - 06/13/08

Visidyne, Incorporated, proposes to complete development of the Efficient Radiation Transport Testbed (ERTT), which combines the strengths of state-of-the-art programmable graphical processing units (GPUs) with standard correlated-k (CK) and line-by-line (LBL) methods for computing atmospheric radiation transport. During Phase I, Visidyne showed...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-169
Budget: 05/04/06 - 05/31/09

In Phase 1 Visidyne demonstrated the utility of its breadboard, ground-based, Sun and Aureole Measurement (SAMNET) sensor coupled with its state-of-the-science models for particle scattering for measuring and deriving the transmission and scattering properties of clouds. Knowledge of these properties is critical to the correct interpretation of ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 06-2
Budget: 01/01/06 - 12/31/06

Visidyne's Phase I effort has established through modeling and analysis that a unique concept for an active optical 3-D Imager (or Imaging LADAR) has high potential for successful application as a hazard avoidance sensor for use by NASA spacecraft during landing on planetary surfaces. The Landing Hazard Sensor promises to be highly cost-effecti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-169
Budget: 03/07/05 - 09/07/05

Visidyne proposes to demonstrate the utility of visible and IR sensors for detecting and characterizing bright targets through cloud layers. Visidyne proposes to take advantage of sensors routinely operated as part of the Department of Energy's Atmospheric Radiation Measurement (ARM) program at their Clouds and Radiation Testbed (CART) in Oklah...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA04-149
Budget: 02/11/05 - 11/15/05

N/A

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 05-1
Budget: 01/01/05 - 12/31/05

Visidyne proposes to investigate an active optical 3D imaging LADAR as the sensor for an automated Landing Hazard Avoidance system for spacecraft landing on the Moon or Mars. Specifically, the LADAR utilizes low cost and electrically efficient laser diode illumination and a unique focal plane array detector concept that may be implemented in CC...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 04-1
Budget: 01/01/04 - 12/31/04

Visidyne proposes to develop a design for a small, lightweight, high resolution, in x, y, and z Doppler imager to assist in the guidance, navigation and control (GN&C) of satellites as for a chaser-target vehicle type scenario. It could therefore be used for rendezvous, circumnavigation, inspection and docking. Key elements for the design are Vi...
