43 Awards Won

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-188
Budget: 01/13/11 - 10/17/11

In this effort, a single ROIC device will be developed that simultaneously operates in Imaging Mode (i.e., for high spatial resolution imaging applications) as well as Temporal Mode (i.e., for high frame hostile fire detection applications). Nova s design approach will use a single photodiode device in each of the unit cells. Switched ca...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-144
Budget: 12/15/10 - 09/12/11

Readout integrated circuit (ROIC) designers at Nova Sensors are developing a 768 x 512 pixel High Dynamic Range Array (HIDRA) ROIC that is optimally matched to operate today s high performance indium antimonide (InSb) mid-wave infrared (MWIR) detector arrays. In addition, unlike conventional ROICs for infrared applications, it will not satura...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: Johns Hopkins University

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA08-T002
Budget: 11/01/10 - 11/01/12

Nova Sensors is engaged in the development of an advanced large format dual-band readout integrated circuit (ROIC) that is closely coupled with a compact, high performance image analytics processor. This combined technology is optimized for use in MDA Infrared Search and Track System (IRSTS) applications. The focal plane array will incorporate...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-262
Budget: 09/20/10 - 12/18/12

This research developed a new technique for dramatically improving the performance of existing midwave infrared (MWIR) forward-looking infrared (FLIR) camera systems. Prototype demonstration hardware was developed through the course of this project that permitted Nova Sensors to perform side-by-side performance comparisons with existing FLIR un...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A09-145
Budget: 05/13/10 - 11/16/10

place holder for the abstract

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA09-038
Budget: 05/03/10 - 11/02/10

Readout integrated circuit (ROIC) designers at Nova Sensors are developing a 768 x 512 pixel High Dynamic Range Array (HIDRA) ROIC that is optimally matched to operate today s high performance InGaAs near infrared (NIR) detector arrays. In addition, unlike conventional ROICs for infrared applications, it will not saturate when exposed to radi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-090
Budget: 03/19/10 - 03/18/11

Over the last two years, Nova Sensors has developed the next generation of Read-In Integrated Circuits (RIICs) for the Hardware in the Loop (HWIL) infrared scene projection (IRSP) community. The RIICs provide very high power to each pixel and offer higher frame rates than are currently available by any supplier. Nova Sensors proposes the use o...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-223
Budget: 03/09/10 - 12/09/10

In this project, Nova Sensors and DRS Technologies have partnered to produce the world s most capable uncooled microbolometer infrared focal plane array. Leveraging the tremendous accomplishments that DRS has achieved in materials development and the innovative, low noise readout integrated circuit designs produced by Nova Sensors, this winning...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB092-012
Budget: 01/26/10 - 09/30/10

Nova Sensors developed the world s first foveating focal plane array (FPA) in 2002 under sponsorship from the Air Force Research Laboratory. At least ten SBIR contracts have contributed to the development of a variety of these devices which are now being implemented in demonstration camera systems. The first device was a 32 x 32 pixel visible ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF083-262
Budget: 03/04/09 - 12/01/09

An unexpected DoD issue recently arose when flight crews, field-testing their forward-looking infrared (FLIR) systems, complained of poor contrast in their displays (the critical Human-System Interface), which prevents them from performing surveillance missions and even safely landing when flying in relatively low-temperature environments (e.g.,...
