Principal Investigator: Jeffery A. Berrie, President & CEO
Award Amount: $100,000.00
Abstract:
In this SBIR proposal, BerrieHill Research Corporation working with the ElectroScience Laboratory and the MicroMD Facility at The Ohio State University shall identify and develop novel magnetic RF polymers that have relatively high permittivity and permeability while exhibiting low loss at… More

Efficiently Computing and/or Compensating for Object Variability for Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jeffery A. Berrie, President & CEO
Award Amount: $99,925.00
Abstract:
Variability exists in all objects considered in ATR data sets. The two most important sources of this variability are (1) added or removed objects (example: object attached to the back of a tank) or (2) a part displaced relative to other parts, sometimes referred to as "articulation" (the classic… More

Lightweight, Miniature Sensor Payload for a Mini-UAV

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2007 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Jeffery A. Berrie, President & CEO
Award Amount: $735,348.00
Abstract:
An important area of military capabilities is the small unmanned aerial vehicle (UAV). It is inexpensive and controllable by forward units. The Air Force presently has a significant opportunity to improve the productivity of UAV radar systems to provide all-environment detection of camouflaged and… More

High Power Microwave Frequency Selective Surfaces

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2009 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Peter Munk, Engineer
Award Amount: $99,999.00
Abstract:
High Power Microwave (HPM) systems penetrate electronic equipment front ends and cause substantial damage to critical components by generating extremely high energy via a very short electromagnetic pulse. Enclosing an HPM radiating aperture with a frequency selective surface (FSS) radome presents a… More

High Power Microwave Frequency Selective Surfaces

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2010 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Peter Munk, Principal Investigator – (937) 435-1016
Award Amount: $749,951.00
Abstract:
In general, there are two ways an FSS Radome subjected to an HPM source can fail. The first is under a sustained continuous high average power signal where heating in lossy materials causes melting or burning. The second is under a very high peak power signal where arching or breakdown occurs… More

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2011 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Peter Munk, Engineer – (937) 435-1016
Award Amount: $99,991.00
Abstract:
ABSTRACT: The US Department of Defense, heavily dependent on the Global Positioning System (GPS) for geolocation, navigation, timekeeping and other military operations, faces unique challenges increasing capability, accuracy and availability of current GPS systems. New GNSS Systems are being… More

Efficient Constrained Optimization Method for In-Situ Antenna Performance Restoration

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2012 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency: DOD
Principal Investigator: Tri Van, Sr. Research Scientist – (937) 435-1016
Award Amount: $79,957.00
Abstract:
In-situ antenna measurements are often impractical or too costly, since they require the fabrication of the antenna and structural modifications of the platform for antenna installation. As the forward EM problems can be numerically solved ever more efficiently, it is possible to perform… More
