Phase 2 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02T-00
Budget: 07/23/04 - 07/22/06

We propose a phase II to develop an uncooled very long wave infrared (VLWIR) focal plane array (FPA) using interferometry to be used in space interceptors that require high sensitivity and resolution for locking onto a target hard-body at long range. Based on our successful demonstration of fabricability in phase I, we will complete the developm...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-151
Budget: 03/31/04 - 04/29/06

We propose a phase II to develop a high dynamic range infrared (IR) scene projector (HIRSP) for hardware-in-the-loop simulation (HILS) of advanced seekers that will encounter an enormous range of intensities from targets, backgrounds and countermeasures. Capable of a dynamic range of 1,000,000, the HIRSP consists of a dense array of micro interf...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-007
Budget: 10/31/03 - 10/31/05

We propose a phase II to develop a tunable, uncooled sensor, capable of hyper-spectral imaging over the entire long wave infrared (LWIR) spectrum, ideal for target acquisition and thermal weapons sights. The sensor is a focal plane array (FPA), fabricated by MEMS (micro electro-optical mechanical system) and CMOS (complementary metal oxide sem...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF02-130
Budget: 05/08/03 - 05/08/05

We propose a phase II to develop a dynamic Fabry-Perot Tunable Filter (FPTF) array system tunable over the medium wave infrared (MWIR) for multi-spectral imaging, target acquisition, night vision and gas sensing. Base on the successful demonstration of tunability and fabricability in phase I, we will complete the development of a full 128x128 ar...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-007
Budget: 02/06/03 - 12/07/03

We propose to develop a long wave infrared (LWIR) focal plane array (FPA) capable of multi-spectral imaging over the entire LWIR spectrum, ideal for target acquisition, tracking and discrimination. The FPA, micromachined entirely out of Silicon using the so-called MEMS (micro electro-optical mechanical system) technology, consists of a 256x256 a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A02-151
Budget: 01/22/03 - 12/26/03

We propose to develop a high dynamic range IR scene projector using micromachined micro Fabry-Perot tunable filter (MFPTF) and a Carbon dioxide laser to achieve a dynamic range greater than a million to one. It consists of a 512x512 array of MFPTFs processed by MEMS technology with on-chip control circuits. By tunable the wavelength within the l...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02T-00
Budget: 08/26/02 - 03/10/03

We propose to develop a very long wave infrared (VLWIR) FPA (focal plane array) for missile seeker and space surveillance applications, for which the LWIR region is very important. It consists of a 2-D array of micromachined micro Fabry-Perot interferometers (FPIs), each of which contains a micro airgap cavity formed by two partially-reflecting ...

Phase 1 STTR

Institution: University of California, Irvine

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: BMDO02T-00
Budget: 08/01/02 - 01/31/03

An uncooled long wave infrared (LWIR) focal plane array (FPA) is proposed. It is fabricated with ultra-sensitive micro bolometers, micromachined entirely out of silicon using the MEMS (micro electro-optical mechanical system) technology. It consists of a 256x256 array of micro bolometers, each micromachined in a special form to possess an extrem...
