  1. Durable. Textured, Thermoplastic Coatings for External Drum Dynamometers

    SBC: RESODYN CORPORATION            Topic: AF182023

    The U.S. Air Force is interested in the development of a texture coating application method to produce simulated runway surface coatings that can survive on external drum dynamometers during aircraft tire/wheel/brake testing. Resodyn Corporation proposes the development of pavement-like coatings (PLC) suitable for Polymer Thermal Spray (PTS) deposition in order to address the U.S. Air Forces need ...

  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, n ...

  4. Multi-channel tunable ultra-stable source for all-fiber space-based atomic interactions

    SBC: ADVR, Inc            Topic: AF151080

    ABSTRACT:The development of compact, reliable inertial navigation systems is essential for applications where GPS-based systems are ineffective or unavailable. This Phase I SBIR will establish the feasibility of developing an ultra-stable, compact, robust, integrated laser source suitable for atom-based precision navigation and timing (PNT) systems. AdvRs design is enabled by capitalizing on well- ...
