Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Navy
Topic: N153-125
Budget: 03/25/16 - 01/24/17

Cyan Systems, an innovator in advanced imaging sensor technology, proposes a passive electro-optical based solution with integration and frame rate improvements to make possible capturing the dim thermal signature of high speed small-arms projectiles in the most challenging of realistic conditions. This includes gunshots up to perpendicular angl...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF071-155
Budget: 01/10/16 - 09/24/17

ABSTRACT: Goals of this Autofoveation Sensor Technology (AFOST) small camera/algorithm effort are to continue to optimize on FPA automated tiling/autofoveation processing merge closed loop processing performance with the aid of near sensor processors. We will provide a path toward larger format sensors for small platforms. The potential for hi...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-016
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The critical, limiting factor for night vision goggles (NVGs) is the sensor. ?Existing sensor technology for head-mounted systems do not provide the same performance, especially in low light conditions, compared to the latest image intensification technology. ?However, existing image-intensifier-based NVGs are limited by their size, wei...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF151-109
Budget: 01/01/15 - 12/31/15

ABSTRACT:The High Definition Munitions Warning Sensor (HDMWS) is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical breakthrough required in the reliable detection of Hostile Munitions. Our strategy is to address the limitations that exist in current HFI and MWS sensors, namely reliance on the initial muzzle flash for detection. ??Cyan ha...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-003
Budget: 08/07/13 - 08/07/15

The Extremely High Temperature Multispectral Projector (ELIRSP) effort focuses on larger format IRSP s with narrow band emitters that can be tuned to any wavelength range in the near IR to LWIR by adjusting its surface geometry during fabrication. Our meta-material technology utilizing high temperature Tungsten based photonic emitter structures ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Air Force
Topic: AF131-121
Budget: 05/21/13 - 02/28/14

ABSTRACT: The Saturation Suppression Sensor Technology (S3-TECH) FPA is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical break-through required in the successful development of improved detection and mitigation of hot target saturation and image degradation effects in imaging sensors. The S3-TECH s innovative technology will demonstrat...

Phase 2 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-009
Budget: 03/05/13 - 03/04/15

Our approach to Corrugated QWIP technolgy has been to design the CROIC that can function with a variety QWIP detectors classes as well as other emerging detector technologies. System goals are to have the ROIC be able to provide both high voltage and low voltage biases to support several different types of QWIP including CQWIP, Resonator QWIP, ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Missile Defense Agency
Topic: MDA11-003
Budget: 02/01/12 - 07/31/12

The proposed Extremely Large IR Scene Projector (ELIRSP) approach is based on an array of Photonic Crystal (PhC) emitters as the key component. We have teamed with Sandia Labs and Nova Sensors to develop key components and believe our approach can meet all the requirements listed above to provide an effective test system for the next generation ...

Phase 1 SBIR

Agency: Army
Topic: A11-009
Budget: 06/17/11 - 12/16/11

The Corrugated Quantum Well Infrared ROIC (CROIC) FPA is the centerpiece for a potentially revolutionary technical break-through required in the successful development of Broadband C-QWIP sensors with FPA format of greater than 2000 x 2000 pixels. The Corrugated Quantum Well Infrared Rios s innovative design will allow breakthroughs to high sen...
