  1. Methodologies for Cost-Effective Measurement of Dynamic Material Properties or Characterization of Materials under Dynamic Loads

    SBC: PROTECTION ENGINEERING CONSULTANTS LLC            Topic: MDA16T003

    Explosions and high-velocity impacts can create strain rates on the order of 105 to 107 s-1.To simulate these events, first-principles codes require material models that are valid at these loading rates.Currently, the amount of test data, material models and material constants for this strain rate range is extremely limited, and an innovative and cost-effective laboratory test procedure is needed. ...

  2. Aft Looking Spectrometer for Plume Characterization and Waking on Re-entry

    SBC: NANOHMICS INC            Topic: MDA16016

    Nanohmics proposes to develop a hyperspectral imager for aft-looking sensing of phenomenology associated with target vehicles.The payload is designed to operate with existing components and has no moving parts.The high spectral resolution will provide feedback for signature models and the spatial resolution will allow the spectral signatures to be associated with specific phenomena.Approved for Pu ...

  3. Ferroelectric Capacitors for Pulse Power Electronics

    SBC: Advanced Technologies/Laboratories Intl            Topic: N/A

    HIGH-DENSITY ENERGY STORAGE AND FAST DISCHARGE WILL BE CRITICAL IN A VARIETY OF HIGH POWER AEROSPACE APPLICATIONS. CAPACITORS ARE IDEAL FOR THESE PURPOSES, AS WELL AS FOR POWER CONDITIONING AND FILTERING. UNFORTUNATELY, BULK POWDER-BASED DIELECTRICS USED IN CAPACITORS HAVE SEVERE LIMITATIONS, ESPECIALLY THE HIGH NUMBER OF SHORT-INDUCING DEFECTS CAUSED BY POOR CONTROL OF MATERIAL PROPERTIES IN CERA ...

  4. Multiple Rectangular Discharge CO2 Laser

    SBC: Qsource, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    An innovative discharge geometry for a very compact, area cooled, high average power CO2 laser employing a two mirror, waveguide-stable optical cavity is proposed. The specific Phase I result sought is the generation of an average CO2 output power of 1 W/cm2 of wall cooling area in a geometry that has a total cooling area of 140 cm2. A lightweight CO2 amplifier version of a future Phase II devic ...

  5. Implementation of High-GHz-to-THz Optical Data Links

    SBC: TEMPLEX TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Recent research has demonstrated a number of new optical processes based on the interaction of temporally structured light beams with spectrally-selective recording materials. One of these all-optical processes provides for the ultrahigh speed, temporal-waveform-controlled, spatial routing of optical beams (time-to-space conversion). Propagation of an optical data stream through an entirely passiv ...
