Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF093-159
Budget: 01/13/10 - 10/13/10

The objective of the proposed work is to provide a Micro-Sensor network that would enable a smart sensing environment capable of supporting multiple missions with wide ranging applications for communication, radar, and electronic warfare (EW). Based on ultra-short micro-burst transmission and by sharing the radio communication transmit pulse ene...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-162
Budget: 08/27/09 - 08/27/11

This project is to develop a new fuze for precise air-burst detonation of munitions. Recent fuze sensing advances [1] could greatly increase the effectiveness of small munitions/ordinance such as those fired by the 40 mm, M-203 grenade launcher by replacing the point-contact fuze with a radar fuze. Point contact fuzing can allow more than 95% of...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-146
Budget: 05/30/08 - 05/30/10

The purpose of this proposal is to build a diagnostic Micro Power Radar (MPR) to track projectiles and detect voids during hard target penetration. Current smart fuzes use algorithms based on accelerometers output. This is problematic due to the mechanical noise introduced by impact, and the uncertain behavior demonstrated by penetrators under n...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-162
Budget: 02/11/08 - 08/11/08

The purpose of this proposal is to assess the use of Micro Power Radar (MPR) to aid in providing the individual Marine Infantryman with air bursting munitions to enhance his battlefield effectiveness. Current fuzes compute the time of flight and set the fuze for a time or counting revolutions with an input to the system to tell it to detonate a...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N07-127
Budget: 08/23/07 - 02/23/08

The goal is to develop and demonstrate an UWB imaging surveillance sensor array capable of detecting intrusion of man or machine in to secure (exclusion) zones. The asynchronous nature of modern war exacerbates the protection needs of critical infrastructure: airfields, waterfronts, and other facilities. Developing a multi-lateral UWB sensor fen...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-146
Budget: 07/30/07 - 01/30/08

The purpose of this proposal is to assess the use of Micro Power Radar (MPR) to aid in the detection of voids during hard target penetration. Current smart fuzes use algorithms based on accelerometers output. This is problematic due to the mechanical noise introduced by impact, and the uncertain behavior demonstrated by penetrators under nearly ...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-020
Budget: 04/04/07 - 12/31/09

Wireless micro-systems have the potential to operate with Gigabits of information without power-hungry components associated with conventional narrowband carrier technologies. The goal of the recently completed Phase I project was to determine whether it might be feasible to implement three new Giga-band tools in silicon: 1). Zero-bias amplifi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF06-036
Budget: 04/26/06 - 02/27/07

Urban warfare reduces engagement ranges to a few meters or less. Adversaries may approach U.S, Warfighters face-to-face under the disguise of civilian clothing or may lurk on the other side of a wall. All that stands in the way of disaster is the soldier s ability to read the adversaries intentions, a difficult task in the best of circumstance...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Defense Advanced Research Projects Agency
Topic: SB052-020
Budget: 12/01/05 - 08/31/06

Wireless micro-systems have the potential to operate with Gigabits of information without power-hungry components associated with conventional narrowband carrier technologies. These systems will have fewer components, cost less and operate with better performance than can be imagined with today's technology. Giga-band technology is barely in ...
