  3. A narrowband, frequency-agile laser for optical interrogation of arrayed fiber optic sensors

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF02005

    The VIRGINIA Class submarine employs the Light-Weight Wide Aperture Array (LWWAA) hull-mounted array of fiber-optic hydrophones that requires the use of high performance, narrowband lasers. In this Navy Phase II SBIR effort, a prototype laser for the LWWAA hull-array sensor will be developed using the frequency-stabilized semiconductor laser technology demonstrated during the Phase I effort. The ...

  4. UAV-based mine detection using a short pulse, high repetition rate, multicolor laser transmitter

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: N04203

    This SBIR Phase I effort will demonstrate the feasibility of a UAV compatible lidar scanner/receiver for use with a high repetition rate, short pulse, multicolor laser transmitter. The system features an electro-optic beam scanner and a fiber optic receiver. The key innovation in this effort is a beam steering device without moving parts which offers high bandwidth, wide scan range, low loss, and ...

  5. Littoral Geoacoustic Surveys Using an Adaptive Network of Gliders

    SBC: Alaska Native Technologies, LLC            Topic: N04141

    Acoustic sensor systems are the backbone of both anti-submarine (ASW) and mine-countermeasure (MCM) systems. Inadequate knowledge of the acoustic environment, especially in denied areas, results from a lack of survey equipment, funding, and access to areas of tactical interest. Moreover, the acoustic environment can change substantially depending on conditions such as sound speed, water depth, an ...

  6. RF Sensor System Miniaturization and Fabrication

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N04181

    Sciperio will use advanced genetic algorithm (GA) modeling tools for the development of a minimum footprint antenna system that has been optimized for use with existing Navy sensor system electronics. The GA modeling tools will also be used to improve the antenna system operation as it applies to the operating environment. The miniaturized optimal antenna system will then be placed on an existin ...

  7. Photonic Multi-Channel Transmit/Receive Integrated Phase and Amplitude Controller

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: A04035

    The development of compact Gbit/sec bandwidth Army free-space, laser communication systems requires a new generation of fiber-optic, high-speed, multi-channel beam controllers. It is proposed to develop a low-loss, multi-channel, integrated transmit/receive, beam-combiner and controller with high-speed, low voltage phase shifting and amplitude modulation capabilities. The Transmit/Receive (Transce ...

  8. High Speed (15 kts) Long-Length Fiber Optic Deployment System

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N05075

    Tethers Unlimited, Inc. (TUI) proposes to develop a compact Underwater Tether Deployment (UTD) System designed to provide an optical fiber link for two-way communication between a submarine and a communication buoy. To minimize tension forces on the fiber optic, the UTD System will utilize two deployment spools, one at each end of the cable, thus enabling long lengths to be deployed at high veloc ...

  9. An Integrated Thrust Control Solution

    SBC: GHKN Engineering, LLC            Topic: A04174

    This proposal describes a feasibility study to evaluate several concepts for integrated thrust vector control of a tactical missile. The proposed designs include a moveable aeropintle capable of moving laterally as well as axially and a fluidic gas injection system with the goal of provide both thrust variation and thrust vector control. The variable thrust aeropintle can be mechanized to move in ...

  10. Innovative Surface Feature Extraction for Visualization using LIDAR Intensity and Co-registered Optical Data

    SBC: HyPerspectives Inc.            Topic: N04245

    Pre-mission rehearsal using 3D, simulated fly throughs derived from remotely sensed data can signicantly enhance warfighter safety and efficiency. Because of its great potential for extracting the location, orientation, identification, and elevation profile of surface features, LIDAR (light ranging and detection) data provide an excellent information base for creating these simulated visualizatio ...
