Award Amount: $50,000.00

HIGH DATA RATE OPTICAL HEAD

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1989 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: You-wen Zhang
Award Amount: $499,590.00
Abstract:
This proposal shows a method for significantly enhancing the speed and efficiency of the optical disk head. (1) weight could be reduced with the proposed design for holographic optic elements (h.o.e.), which have fewer elements and could be made with lighter and less expensive plastic materials. (2)… More

Passive Infrared Imager for Fire Fighting Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1996 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr You-wen Zhang
Award Amount: $88,120.00

Passive Infrared Imager for Fire Fighting Applications

Award Year / Program / Phase: 1997 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Dr You-wen Zhang
Award Amount: $747,700.00
Abstract:
Fire creates smoke and dust. Their particles bloke firefighter's view because the particles scatter visible light (wavelength less than 1u). However, fire also creates infrared radiation with wavelength longer than 1u which will not be scattered by smoke and dust. Therefore it can be detected by… More

High Performance Assault Zone Marking System

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2001 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Research Director
Award Amount: $495,207.00
Abstract:
Special Operations Forces is looking for assault zone marking systems to facilitate instrument approaches of fixed and rotary wing aircraft under extremely low ceiling/visibility conditions (200' ceiling/0.5 mile visibility). After successfully finishingthe phase-I project, in this phase-II effort,… More

Low-Cost Dual-Mode (Visible/Infrared) Imager

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / NAVY
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Research Director
Award Amount: $99,958.00
Abstract:
"In order to overcome the short distance (it is critical for seeker) and high cost problems of the dual-mode imager using UFPA and fully meet the task requirement, very innovative ideas and designs are proposed:1. By using a smaller UFPA format of 240x320/25 u and adding an immersed detector lens on… More

Remote Runway Survey System to Measure Soil Type, Load Bearing Capacity, Slope and Grades

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2002 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Reserch Director
Award Amount: $99,681.00
Abstract:
"In order to meet the remote runway survey system requirement, by using many cutting edge technologies, a very innovative system is proposed. The remote runway survey includes 4 steps (or the survey system consists of 4 subsystems). In the first step, we will use Remote Sensing Pictures (RSP)… More

Remote Runway Survey System to Measure Soil Type, Load Bearing Capacity, Slope and Grades

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2003 / SBIR / Phase II
Agency / Branch: DOD / SOCOM
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Research Director
Award Amount: $743,172.00
Abstract:
Traditionally the Air Force Special Operations Forces (AFSOF) physically measures assault zone characteristics such as physical dimensions, magnetic orientation, coordinates, obstacles, elevation, weight-bearing capacity of the soil, soil composition,surface tolerances, clearances, and roughness,… More

Void Detection and Stiffness Measurement System for Road and Airfield Pavements

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2004 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / ARMY
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Research Director
Award Amount: $69,958.00
Abstract:
Currently, people use man-operated heavyweight deflectometer to detect the void under runway and use large cone penetrometer to measure the soil stiffness. It is expensive, slow, and destructive. During the wartime, the operator will involve the risk from enemy¿_s land mine, sniper, and artillery… More

Continuous Runway Load-Deflection Evaluation Methodology

Award Year / Program / Phase: 2006 / SBIR / Phase I
Agency / Branch: DOD / USAF
Principal Investigator: Evan Zhang, Research Director
Award Amount: $99,873.00
Abstract:
The deployment of US military forces often requires aircraft operations on runways of unknown construction, roughness, and load carrying capacities not only in UAS but also in foreign countries. Current FWD, DCP and RWD cannot satisfy the mission requirement. The air force is looking for an air… More
