  2. Composite Retrofit Technicques for Blast Resistance

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Small Business Innovation Research Project will determine the advantages and disad-vantages of fibrous/polymeric composite materials over traditional material (steel) for retrofitting key civilian facilities against terrorist bomb attack. Retrofit techniques we will evaluate are: strengthening fully and partially exposed columns with composite wraps or shells, masonry walls with bonded comp ...

  3. Advanced Optoelectronic Pulse-Coupled Pattern Recognition Systems

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    To develop faster and larger pulse-coupled neural networks (PCNN) for image processing, Bosonics will design and simulate a 64 by 64 neuron chip with optical inputs and outputs. PCNN have been shown to be effective at fast analog pre-processing of detector data, image transforms, and automatic target recognition. In Phase I Bosonics will 1) define the image processing application specifications ...

  4. Programmable Optical Beam Former with 10 Nanosecond Reconfiguration Rates

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This project develops low-cost optical beamscanners using fast binary amplitude modulators. The modulators are solder-bumped to silicon drive circuits which have a programmable architecture for rapid, flexible array addressing. The multiple quantum well (MQW) based modulators operate at 850-860 nm with a random access speed over 100 MHz---faster than any known scanner. Preliminary simulation an ...

  5. Arrays of Conformal Waveguide

    SBC: Boulder Microwave            Topic: N/A

    Modern sensors and communication equipment in both the military and commercial sectors require low-cost, small size antennas and circuitry. We propose to investigate low-cost medium-to high-volume manufacturing methods for compact arrays of conformal waveguide. The goals in Phase I will be to investigate and determine the best antenna technology and fabrication methods for military fuse and seeker ...

  6. Phased Array Liquid Crystal Beamsteerer


    This proposal describes a new optical phase-shifter technology incorporating analog ferroelectric liquid crystal (FLC) materials. This technology will be used to produce a phased-array beamsteerer that can be reconfigured in under 100 microseconds. Due to the analog behavior, the device promises high diffraction efficiency and low sidelobe amplitude. Because FLC materials are used, rapid switchi ...

  7. Real Axis SLM for Scintillation Control


    We propose to develop a high frame-rate, large-area, amplitude-only SLM for use in atmospheric correction. The Phase I will demonstrate the concept through the fabrication/evaluation of amplitude-only modulators, as well as an addressing structure that is economical for large-areas. Phase II will scale the addressing structure to 128X128 or higher density, for fabrication of large area amplitude ...

  8. Coherent Lidar Probe for Volumetric Airwake Measurements

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The overall objective of the Phase I and Phase II program is to develop a prototype airwake measurement system that offers substantially - improved capability for measuring and developing models of the wind environment for ship-board landing of helicopters. The proposed Phase I study will carry out a survey of airwake data characteristics of various as-sea helicopter landing environments with pri ...

  9. Development of Efficient, Diode-Pumped 3-5 Micron Oscillators for Remote Sensing

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Spectrally and spatially coherent, high pulse energy, tunable mid-IR sources remain elusive. Solid-State and semiconductor lasers do not operate over the 1.5 to 5 micron wavelength range, leaving laser-pumped frequency converters, such as Optical Parametric Oscillators (OPOs), as the most viable technology. Achieving high conversion efficiency and continuous tunability in rugged OPOs has present ...

  10. Physics-Based Signature Simulator for Adaptive Waveform Coherent LADAR

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel, adaptive waveform coherent LADAR concept is proposed to provide a robust Automatic Target Recognition (ATR) sensor with the capability to meet Air Force objectives. The compact, rugged solid-state LADAR operates at eyesafe wavelengths and is capable of stand-off detection ranges to 20 km or more. Simultaneous precision range, Doppler and micro-Doppler target signatures are extracted wit ...
