Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A16-040
Budget: 09/23/16 - 03/22/17

High data rate digital focal plan arrays offer the warfighter improved situational awareness and target detection and discrimination. However, these benefits are difficult to realize because of high output data rates, high power dissipation, demanding cooling requirements, and limitations on data rates. The proposed 10:1, lossless, on-chip compr...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA15-022
Budget: 12/18/15 - 12/17/17

Imaging in low light conditions is very difficult as it requires a high sensitivity and low leakage current detector, very low detector and readout noise, a small pixel, and large format, attributes that are difficult to obtain simultaneously. To address the demanding requirements, The Nu-Trek Team is offering a short wave infrared (SWIR) low li...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-037
Budget: 09/14/15 - 03/13/17

Program objective is to develop the high dynamic range, affordable, SLS-based LWIR sensor for visually degraded environments (VDE), such as brownout. This is a serious issue for helicopters, as the rotor wash creates a near zero visibility environment. The LWIR Sensor-VDE features the Mixed-Mode architecture which enables very high dynamic range...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA13-028
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

In Phase II, Nu-Trek will develop a digital readout integrated circuit (DROIC) and hybridize it to a long wave/long wave (LWIR/LWIR) strained layer superlattice (SLS) detector to form a digital Sensor Chip Assembly (SCA). The Nu-Trek DROIC is being designed to enhance operation of SLS LWIR/LWIR detectors as well as to provide a cost effective s...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-073
Budget: 09/17/14 - 11/28/16

ABSTRACT: The objective of the proposed effort is the development of a radiation hardened, configurable Successive Approximation Register (SAR) Analog-to-Digital Converter (ADC) ASIC. The proposed technology surpasses current state of the art for the level of hardness and ADC performance (ENOB/Speed/etc.) and addresses the absence of high perfo...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Special Operations Command
Topic: SOCOM12-003
Budget: 07/30/14 - 07/31/15

Typical imager speeds (30 Hz to 60 Hz) are usually too slow to detect and track hostile fire. To achieve higher speeds, windowing and clustering are used. However, these methods reduce the field of view and the spatial resolution. Nu-Trek is proposing to develop a 2-speed SWIR imager, with optional range finder and real-time hostile fire detecti...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-253
Budget: 05/05/14 - 02/09/15
PI: Wais Ali

Within the radio spectrum between 80 MHz and 3 GHz there are many signals that can augment and substitute for GPS navigation. However, current military user equipment is incapable of receiving or processing these signals. This precludes the use of many signals that are already available, plus those new frequencies and signals of opportunity that...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF141-252
Budget: 04/29/14 - 01/29/15
PI: Wais Ali

Numerous navigation bands are currently available in addition to L1 and L2. Receivers that receive and process multiple bands are the future standard for high precision navigation, jamming resistance and spoofing mitigation. To this end, Nu-Trek s program will deliver a multi-band signal processing system that provides access to all L-band sate...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A14-037
Budget: 01/01/14 - 12/31/14

The Digital Readout Integrated Circuit (DROIC) requirements include a small unit cell (12 ?m), a large well capacity (5 E +08 electrons), high resolution (> 20 bits), low power (< 150 mW @ 60 Hz), dual band operation, ability to operate at 1 kHz, and a high speed optical output. While most of the requirements listed above have been achiev...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF121-063
Budget: 11/26/13 - 02/24/16

ABSTRACT: The Global Positioning System (GPS) is relied upon as a source of accurate Positioning, Navigation, and Timing (PNT) information by both civilians and the military. Ideally, GPS receivers receive navigation signals from the satellites, process the information, and provide correct PNT solutions. As GPS has now become ubiquitous in wea...
