Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-241
Budget: 04/27/00 - 04/27/02

TACAN proposes to fabricate and test several novel low voltage, high performance EO modulators with 130 GHz bandwidth and which can be configured for large dynamic range. These modulators use two balanced sections, one for input RF up to 65 GHz, and the other section for 65-130 GHz, with each section using currently-available V connectors and re...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF00-253
Budget: 04/20/00 - 01/20/01

TACAN Corporation proposes a novel low-voltage 20 GHz continuous bandwidth electro-optic modulator based on nonlinear optical (NLO) polymer materials. Our proposed approach will be based on TACAN's recent experimental success in achieving 0.8 V halfwave voltage in a novel Mach-Zehnder modulator. Optical push-pull will be used to reduce the half-...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-084
Budget: 02/29/00 - 02/28/02

TACAN Corporation proposes to develop a new and innovative fieldable instrument: that can be used for the detection of depleted uranium with sensitivity in the several ppm region. The system will operate in adverse conditions and in the presence of unexploded ordnance. Standard methods for the detection of heavy metals, such as atomic absorpti...

Topic: 00-1
Budget: 01/01/00 - 12/31/00

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A99-057
Budget: 12/16/99 - 06/16/00

Early detection is a key aspect of biowarfare (BW) defense, and the foundation for a variety of detection methods has been established using biorecognition molecules such as antibodies. Moving these methods to durable field instruments will probably require replacing the relatively delicate biomolecules like antibodies with more robust, synthet...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-003
Budget: 04/30/99 - 04/10/99

A novel electric field sensor is proposed for electromagnetic interference diagnostic and location systems. The field probe of the proposed sensor will consist of electro-optic polymer integrated waveguides requiring no electrodes. This all dielectric sensor probe minimally disturbs the electric field distribution and is immune to electric disch...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N99-069
Budget: 04/29/99 - 10/29/99

TACAN will develop a new optical cable plant for avionics applications and identify cables and harnesses, connectors, splices, break-out boxes, backplane interfaces, and fiberoptic couplers for this avionics application. The scope of this work includes all manner of waveguides including single mode and multimode glass fibers and waveguides, plas...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF99-241
Budget: 04/27/99 - 01/27/00

TACAN proposes a novel low voltage, low cost, high performance 130 GHz continuous bandwidth EO modulator architecture that uses a balanced two section modulator, one for input RF up to 65 GHz, and the other section for 65 -130 GHz, using currently available V connectors and no metal waveguides. We further propose to fabricate two such external l...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Chemical and Biological Defense Program
Topic: CBD98-301
Budget: 02/26/99 - 02/26/01

Molecular biology, particularly the identification of microorganisms by their nucleic acids, is becoming an essestial tool in biowarfare defense, clinical diagnostics, environmental characterization, and food safety testing. Nucleic acid identification has excellent potential for automated instrumentation that, due to the fundamental basis of DN...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A98-084
Budget: 01/14/99 - 07/15/99

The Army has a need for a fieldable unit that can be use for the detection of depleted uranium with the sensitivity in the several ppm region. The system must operate in adverse conditions and in the presents of un-exploded ordnance. Standard method for the detection of heavy metals, such as atomic adsorption or emission spectroscopy require ins...
