    SBC: OPHIR CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A continuously tunable laser source covering the 2-5 micron wavelength region is proposed. Light generated by a diode laser pumped tunable Cr:LiSAF laser is Raman shifted twice in Hydrogen to nicely cover the 205 micron window. The unique feature of the proposed laser is that the Raman shifting cell and optics are placed inside the pump laser cavity. As a result sufficient gain and interaction len ...

  2. A Distributed Sensor Manager

    SBC: Data Fusion Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Many tactical scenarios include coordinated actions by distributed platforms. Data Fusion Corporation (DFC) and Lockheed Ft. Worth Company will develop innovative methods for handling sensor management among distributed heterogeneous sensing platforms of varying degrees of coupling. This work builds on DFC's work on sensor management and Lockheed's work on multi-platform resource sharing. Platf ...

  3. A General Solver Framework for Radiative Heat Transfer Models in Combustion Systems

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF141084

    ABSTRACT:Modern combustion systems such as gas-turbine combustors and rocket engines are characterized by high operating pressures and temperatures due to increased power density. Thermal radiation has significant impact on both, the heat fluxes at the wall and physical phenomena controlling the combustion process. The objective of this SBIR project is to develop a general, computationally efficie ...

  4. A GPS Small Rocket Tracking System for Meteorological and Atmospheric Research

    SBC: NAVSYS CORPORATION, THE            Topic: N/A

    NAVSYS has developed a low cost sensor, the TIDGET (TM), which is currently being used for tracking weather balloons, but also has application for small rockets. The TIDGET sensor operates by buffering brief snapshots of GPS data for transmission to a ground processing system through an on-board telemetry link. This simplified the functionality in the rocket payload. Conventional GPS receivers ...

  5. A High Performance and Cost Effective Ultra High Performance Concrete

    SBC: i2C Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF12BT04

    ABSTRACT: Adversarial installations, such as those housing the means for nuclear weapons production, are increasingly being constructed in heavily fortified locations and often using ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) as the construction material. As such, the U.S. Air Force has considerable interest in further developments of ultra high performance concrete (UHPC) to maintain an advantage o ...

  6. A High Temperature, Conformal, MCM for In-situ Sensing in Turbine Engine Applications

    SBC: SPORIAN MICROSYSTEMS INC            Topic: AF112165

    ABSTRACT: There has been a strong desire in the turbine engine and thermal protection systems communities to measure surface parameters (such as temperature/pressure) in tight spaces within the engine system using conformal sensors. This type of sensor, prescribed in areas such as turbine and compressor blades would provide unprecedented information to the engine community. New sensor and high-t ...

  8. A Large Area, High-speed CCD Imager Suitable for Use in Ambient Lighting Conditions

    SBC: Silicon Mountain Design, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    High-speed, large area detector arays are needed for recording fast events in both military and commercial applications. Deblurring of high-velocity targets within an image require extremely short exposure times. Short exposure times in turn, reduce the time availble for photon intergration and, because of increased amplifier bandwidths, result in higher noise levels at the CCD sense node. The des ...

  10. A Modular High Power Solar Array for NanoSats

    SBC: M.M.A. Design LLC            Topic: AF103089

    ABSTRACT: With increased focus on development of highly capable Nanosat satellites and missions, innovations in spacecraft system design and architecture that yield high performance, modular and multi-function systems will enhance Air Force mission capability and flexibility. SWAP constraints in NanoSats necessitate this system approach to result in significant increases in performance and missi ...
