  1. Dual-Mode Continuous-Wave Ladar and Optical Communications System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: A12089

    Because the data products generated by modern imaging ladar systems are inherently large in information content, there is currently a severe bottleneck in the communications of these products to end users, particularly when full-waveform recovery is desired. During the Phase I effort, Bridger demonstrated that their 3D imaging system architecture was ideally suited for seamless integration of high ...

  2. High Fidelity Heralded On Demand Single Photon Source

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF141009

    ABSTRACT: To provide reliably secure communications, development of practical quantum optical devices for ground-to-space quantum key distribution is a necessity. The overall goal of this Air Force effort is to develop and deliver a single photon source based on heralding to indicate when a photon has been generated. The proposed device will produce single photons on demand with high efficiency ...

  3. Tomographic Coherent Ladar Based Atmospheric Turbulence Profile Characterization System

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT: This Small Business Innovative Research (SBIR) Phase I project will investigate, develop, and determine the feasibility of using a coherent FMCW ladar measurement system and tomographic methods to provide characterization of atmospheric turbulence profiles. By coherently tracking a small array of point targets from multiple receivers in a known geometry, the transverse and longitudinal ...

  4. APERTURE SYNTHESIS ENABLED BY FAST FOCAL PLANE ARRAYS

    SBC: Bridger Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF141198

    ABSTRACT: There is a critical need for optical imagers that can achieve both extremely high resolution and a compact form factor for rapid and accurate target identification and intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance from airborne platforms. Under this effort, Bridger Photonics Inc. proposes to determine the feasibility of an unconventional imaging system that leverages fast focal plane ar ...

  5. A Cryo-Vacuum Compatible Positioning System

    SBC: Square One Systems Design            Topic: AF073131

    ABSTRACT: Space-based systems have become indispensable elements of global communication, military reconnaissance and scientific research. The expenses associated with any space launch are enormous and, once in orbit, a system failure can have catastrophic consequences. Extensive Earth-based testing is essential to ensure a high success rate. To approximate the demands of space deployment, the ...

  6. Volcanic Ash Analysis and Detection Technology

    SBC: Mobile Mapping Corporation            Topic: AF112184

    ABSTRACT:Aviation near volcanic plumes is dangerous because aircraft engines can be damaged if they ingest airborne ash and aerosols.Knowing the forecast location of an ash plume will improve aviation safety while reducing engine maintenance costs.Ash forecast models are immature.To improve their accuracy we have conducted research with volcanologists at the University of Alaska Fairbanks (UAF) re ...

  8. Sensitivity Analysis Methods for Complex, Multidisciplinary Systems

    SBC: SCIENTIFIC SIMULATIONS            Topic: AF11BT06

    ABSTRACT: The objective of this proposal is to develop efficient sensitivity analysis methods based on adjoint techniques for multi-disciplinary time-dependent problems. The approach is based on the discrete adjoint, which is derived and implemented on a software component basis, with the various multidisciplinary software components being linked together through a Python interface, thus preservi ...
