Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Department of Defense
Topic: A12-035
Budget: 09/08/16 - 03/11/18

We are prototyping a helmet-integrated system for personal hostile fire detection (HFD). The system detects small arms fire and geo-locates the shooter(s). This project to develop a Mark 1 prototype is conceived as the first of three efforts to create a mature system that meets the sponsors objective specifications.

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-035
Budget: 08/16/14 - 08/15/15

Syntonics has demonstrated the feasibility of the Staring Projectile Detection Radar (SPiDR). SPiDR is a stealthy, ultra wideband (UWB) noise radar system. In Phase II we will design and fabricate a multi-channel SPiDR prototype system with detection range of at least 100-m (300-m objective). Progressively realistic laboratory and live fire te...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-066
Budget: 08/13/14 - 11/14/16

ABSTRACT: Satellite antenna systems often use separate transmit/ receive (T/R) apertures to prevent co-site interference. This currently increases the satellite antenna payload and requires RF interference and compatibility (RFI/RFC) studies to prevent performance degradation. But an antenna design that appears RF invisible outside of its oper...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-243
Budget: 04/28/14 - 11/28/14

The Air Force wishes to develop a capability to focus GPS broadcasts on a specific area of interest, steer to maintain the beam on that area, and provide a minimum of 5 dB higher signal strength. The current fixed beam hemispherical broadcast approach has no way to increase the GPS signal power to a specific area of interest. Syntonics has devel...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N132-087
Budget: 11/01/13 - 05/31/14

The Navy is interested in developing a compact, highly efficient antenna at W-Band frequencies (95GHz) for non-lethal counter-personnel Active Denial Technologies (ADT) missions. These requirements can be met using a set of MEMS based reconfigurable patch reflectarray using the Team s pixel-addressable reconfigurable con¬formal antenna (PARCA) S...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-066
Budget: 09/05/13 - 06/05/14

ABSTRACT: The Team will design and develop an antenna design operating at 20, 44, and 60 GHz (K/V) band. We will be basing our new design on a previously successful Phase II SBIR using independently moving metasurface antennas. This new design will take advantage of electronic steering and use multiple apertures sandwiched together. This multiba...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N121-104
Budget: 07/11/12 - 01/10/13

We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of a high gain beamsteering antenna based on the Team s pixel-addressable reconfigurable conformal antenna (PARCA) Software-Defined Antenna technology. With prior DoD SBIR funding from the Missile Defense Agency, the Navy, and the Air Force, the Team of Syntonics LLC and the ElectroScience Laboratory of...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A12-035
Budget: 05/11/12 - 11/15/12

Syntonics proposes to develop the Staring Projectile Detection Radar (SPiDR) for helicopters. SPiDR is an ultra wideband (UWB) noise radar that stares at an approximately 3 GHz wide portion of the 6-30 GHz band. SPiDR detects incoming and near-miss projectiles ranging from slow RPGs to fast rifle bullets. SPiDR uses existing radar and signal p...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF103-090
Budget: 02/18/11 - 02/18/12

ABSTRACT: The desire to improve the performance of portable Global Positioning System (GPS) User Equipment (UE) in the presence of interference and/or signal attenuation creates the need for a multi-mode GPS antenna. The antenna first needs a higher gain mode for initial signal acquisition from at least one GPS satellite and then a lower gain al...

Phase 2 STTR

Institution: The Ohio State University

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF08-BT01
Budget: 12/16/10 - 12/16/12

ABSTRACT: In Phase II, Syntonics will develop an advanced wireless strain measurement system for structural health monitoring. The system will be configured with a number of passive, non-battery power strain sensors communicating wirelessly with an interrogating device mounted external to the engine under test. The goal is the development of d...
