Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-100
Budget: 07/28/03 - 07/28/05

SY Technology, Inc. proposes to develop an imaging system to aid the warfighter and civilian firefighters to see through battlefield obscurants and smoke. The polarimetric imager will consist of a polarized source and a polarization detection imaging system. The system will be constructed using visible imagers and a monolithic, division-of-ape...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF03-031
Budget: 07/09/03 - 07/07/04

Polarimetric detection is gaining interest as a means to complement the information obtained through radiometric and multispectral detection. Understanding polarization phenomenology is key to exploiting polarimetry; however, the dependence of polarization on a significant number of parameters is not well understood and polarimetric BRDF data i...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA02-043
Budget: 12/17/02 - 06/17/03

Seekers for BMD interceptors must acquire, track, discriminate, and determine aimpoints in the presence of difficult physical and countermeasure environments. Polarization imaging has the strong potential to provide additional information over conventional radiance imaging sensors. Polarized hardbodies can be discriminated from unpolarized plu...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N01-129
Budget: 12/18/01 - 06/17/02

To improve the performance and affordability of infrared-guided missiles, we propose to develop a mosaic window concept that would be assembled from many window elements, with each element serving as an optical tilt sensor to detect line of sight to the target. Each single-piece element would consist of three components: a micro-optic for focus...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO01-002
Budget: 05/01/01 - 11/01/01

Applications of IR imaging polarimetry include detection of military targets in clutter, de-mining missions, ice detection on aircraft, roads and bridges, crop monitoring and remote sensing. Key technologies are now sufficiently mature to consider a robust, integrated optical imaging polarimeter, which operates at video rates. SY Technology, In...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A00-100
Budget: 01/12/01 - 10/12/01

SY Technology, Inc. proposes to assess the feasibility for portable instrumentation that will enhance a soldier's ability to see through battlefield aerosols and obscurants. The proposed polarimetric imager will consist of a polarized source and a suitable polarization detection imaging system. The Phase I will primarily consist of a measureme...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-003
Budget: 05/11/00 - 11/10/00

Lithographic technology offers opportunities to embed collection optics in detector arrays to improve fill-factor, and sensitivity for the following materials: Si, InSb, CdZnTe, CdTe, SiAs. A proposed surface structure etched into the sensing plane can perform the function of a high-performance multilayer anti-reflection coating and focus light ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO00-007
Budget: 04/13/00 - 10/12/00

Passive immersion cooling is one of the leading candidate cooling architectures being considered for future use in the cooling of integrated circuits. The main technical hurdle that has prevented the current widespread use of passive immersion cooling of IC chips has been the temperature overshoot associated with incipient nucleation. Recent e...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-221
Budget: 03/22/00 - 02/11/01

This proposal discusses two different but complementary approaches to an Attitude Control System for Laser Lightcraft. The first approach is to build and fire a novel prototype microthruster. This type of attitude control is attractive due to the small size of the thruster and associated electronics. The second approach is to control the plas...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF96-103
Budget: 04/11/97 - 07/11/99

The Phase I effort has demonstrated the feasibility of deformable mirrors fabricated with Micro-Opto-Electro-Machine Systems (MOEMS) technologies. The Phase II effort will introduce low cost MOEMS based adaptive optic systems into the commerical market. This will be accomplished by the development of two key products, followed by demonstration...
