Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: S20.01
Budget: 06/17/15 - 12/17/15

NASA is interested characterizing the atmospheric concentration of greenhouse gases critical to global warming phenomena, and their fluxes over time. For this reason, NASA has invested in the Total Carbon Column Observing Network (TCCON), which comprises sun trackers with high resolution Fourier Transform Spectrometers. NASA is currently looki...

Phase 1 STTR

Agency: Department of Energy
Topic: 08a
Budget: 06/08/15 - 03/07/16

Multi and hyperspectral imaging techniques have been effectively commercialized in the visible waveband to give pointbypoint spectral information about a scene. The current goal is to adapt these technologies in order to extend the spectral range into the near ultraviolet. Specifically this proposal addresses the development of a tunable filter ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-185
Budget: 04/09/15 - 04/09/17

ABSTRACT:OPTRA is proposing to design, build and test a dual-band infrared scene projector based on digital micromirror device (DMD) technology. DMDs are an ideal spatial modulator for scene projection applications that require high frame rates and fast radiance rise/fall times. DMDs offer further advantages of applicability in the spectral regi...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Homeland Security
Topic: H-SB014.2-004
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

The widespread use and deployment of laser systems in the public domain has led to the need for laser exposure measurement systems that operate over wide spectral range and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure exposure relative to maximum permissible exposure (MPE) limits and establish normal hazard zones (NHZ). OPTRA, Inc. proposes a sol...

Topic: H-SB014.2-004-2014
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: National Aeronautics and Space Administration
Topic: 12-2-S1.09
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

OPTRA proposes the development of a modular, reconfigurable matched spectral filter (RMSF) spectrometer for the monitoring of greenhouse and volcanic gases. The heart of this spectrometer will be an RMSF core, which can be paired with different fore-optics or detector modules to achieve active point or passive standoff detection of the chemical...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-185
Budget: 10/28/13 - 07/28/14

ABSTRACT: OPTRA proposes the development of a three-band visible (VIS), shortwave infrared (SWIR), and midwave infrared (MWIR) high dynamic range digital micromirror device (DMD)-based scene projector incorporating OPTRA s patented structured illumination technique for achieving low background scene projection and high contrast at high frame rat...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-146
Budget: 08/05/13 - 05/07/14

ABSTRACT: The Air Force is seeking a hyperspectral imager capable of detecting missiles, aircraft and artillery fire from a satellite platform. OPTRA proposes to address this need through the development of a grating-based hyperspectral compressive imager. In this design, a grating would be used to diffract the incoming light from the energeti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-099
Budget: 07/16/13 - 04/15/14

ABSTRACT: The Air Force is requires an innovative multi-aperture sensor for mid-wave infrared (MWIR) and long-wave infrared (LWIR) capable of extended operation at a speed between Mach 4 and Mach 7 and an altitude between 50,000 and 70,000ft, for navigation and terminal homing applications. The leading edge of a vehicle traveling at Mach 7 may e...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: Tufts University

Agency: Navy
Topic: N13A-T027
Budget: 07/01/13 - 04/30/14

The proliferation of laser based weapons systems has led to the need for laser threat sensor systems that operate over wide spectral range from the visible to infrared and provide sufficient dynamic range to measure the irradiance levels seen in practice. OPTRA, Inc. proposes a solution based on the complementary combination of CMOS readout inte...
