  1. Metrology of Visibly Opaque, Infrared-Transparent Aerodynamic Domes, Conformal Windows, and Optical Corrector Elements

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N152105

    There is a growing need to fabricate visibly-opaque, infrared-transparent, high-optical-quality optics that conform to an aircrafts outer moldline shape to reduce drag.However, fabrication of such free-form and aspheric infrared (IR) optics has proven challenging.The current fabrication bottleneck is in the speed and precision of measuring the optical figure and transmitted wavefront error for the ...

  2. Metrology of Visibly Transparent Large Aspheric Optics

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N152106

    There is a growing need to fabricate high-optical-quality optics that conform to an aircrafts outer moldline shape to reduce drag.However, fabrication of such free-form and aspheric optics has proven challenging.The current fabrication bottleneck is in the speed and precision of performing metrology of the optical surfaces because traditional interferometric techniques are not applicable.To meet t ...

  4. Alternative Mixing Technologies for High-Energy, Solid Materials for Large Gas Generator Propellant

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N172141

    The Phase I project objective is to develop and demonstrate the feasibility for use of an alternative process for mixing high-energy solid propellant materials that are used for gas generators in U.S. Navy strategic missile post-boost propulsion systems, other large missiles, and launch vehicles. In addition, the advanced mixing technology does not use impellers for mixing. The process selected fo ...

  5. Development and Assessment of No-Impeller, No-Blade Propellant Mixing Equipment and Procedures

    SBC: Highland Point, Inc.            Topic: N172141

    The Phase I effort provides an evaluation of variations of the no-impeller, no-blade propellant mixing approach. The assessment of this technology, specific trade studies of the incorporation of the technology into the propellant manufacturing process, and the accompanying laboratory evaluations demonstrate the feasibility of using this technology to replace the legacy methods for producing substa ...

  6. Novel Composite for High Performance Thermal Interface Material

    SBC: GLACIGEN MATERIALS, INC.            Topic: N171081

    Navy operational needs dictate that thermal interface materials (TIMs) have high thermal conductance, high dielectric strength, form non-permanent bonds, and be resilient to vibration and abrasion. Available TIMs each satisfy a portion of these requirements, but not all of them.Glacigen Materials will develop a new class of TIM by creating a novel composite material. This material will be embodied ...

  7. Next Generation Boat Hull Impact and Abrasion Proofing

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: N131022

    Resodyn Corporation proposes to develop a single tough thermoplastic polymer coating material and system solution for aluminum and composite boat hulls. The coating functions as an adhesive for attaching doubler plates. It encapsulates and prevents water from corroding metal substrates plus it is hydrophobic and can include corrosion inhibitors and colorant. Basic polymer components are tough ther ...

  10. Modulated Pulsed Source for Microwave Photonic Lidar Applications

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N07036

    This Navy Phase II SBIR effort will develop a packaged, high-speed optical amplitude modulator for use with a high-power, pulsed, blue laser that is being developed for lidar-based detection, ranging, and tracking of underwater objects in an ocean environment. While it is well known that laser sources in the blue/green spectral region increase the achievable range in ocean and coastal environments ...
