  1. Simple Optical Vibration Sensor for Small Objects

    SBC: LIGHTWORKS, LLC            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of Commerce
  2. Small Absolute Gravimeter

    SBC: Micro-g Solutions, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We will test the feasibility of a compact absolute gravimeter for use in rugged field environments such as ocean floors and the ice sheets of Greenland and Antarctica. The accuracy of the measurement should be better than 5x10^-7 m/s^2 (10 uGal) in an observing period of 24 hours. Phase I will show the feasibility of a new miniature optical design and fringe detection system. We will demonstrat ...

  3. Acoustic Monitor for Buried Structure Detection

    SBC: APTEK, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    We propose to apply a non-intrusive embedded acoustic sensor concept, which has been used successfully in reentry vehicle aerodynamics applications for detecting exterior flow conditions to penetrator munitions for detecting various media and buried structures during penetration. This effort includes: review of existing data and literature to choose promising signal characteristics for media and ...

  4. Development and Demonstration of SSTSim, A Simulation Environment for Space System On-Orbit Simulation

    SBC: BCSi, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    With the appropriate analytical resources, the Space & Missile Technology Directorate will be able to "look into the future" of the development of space system technologies, development which spans definition, acquisition, and operations phases. For example, developers will be able to clearly quantify system requirements before system acquisition begins, use component test data to predict overall ...

  5. Optical Scanner with High Speed and High Resolution

    SBC: Bosonics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The optical beam scanners developed under this program will have linear resolution of up to 1000 angles with access times as low as 10 nanoseconds. Besides contributing to existing systems in optical memory access, optical signal processing, and optical switching, the unprecedented speed at such high resolutions will open up further applications previously unaccessible like real-time ...

  6. A Massively Parallel Liquid Crystal Fourier Transform Spectrometer

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal describes a novel high throughput, massively parallel, ferroelectric liquid crystal-based Fourier transform spectrometer. The proposed system improves upon conventional polarization interference filters for applications requiring the recovery of spectral signatures. The basis for the proposed approach is that the high speed of FLC materials can be used to reduce hardware requiremen ...

  7. An Innovative All Solid-State Laser Source for Direct and Coherent Detection LIDAR

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    We introduce an innovative laser which brings inherently new capabilities to lidar that were not available with other coherent lidar laser sources. The unique design of this laser allows production of a greater range of pulse widths and energies than was previously obtainable from a single source. This 1.56 um eye-safe laser utilizes an intracavity Solid State Raman Shifter (SSRS) which is pumpe ...

  8. An Onboard Coherent Lidar Wake Turbulence Sensor

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A forward and lateral looking scanning Doppler lidar is proposed for use onboard aircraft to sense and display windshear in the vicinity of the planned flight path, particularly windshear due to the vortex wakes of preceding large aircraft. The goal is to provide the pilot with an assessment, visual display, and warning of the windshear in the vicinity of the projected flight path, with ...

  9. Development of Efficient, Diode-Pumped 3-5 Micron Oscillators for Remote Sensing

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A


    SBIR Phase I 1996 Department of DefenseAir Force
  10. Innovative Compressor Core Cooling Methods

    SBC: Concepts NREC, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The ability to reduce total coolant flows to meet increased cooling and life requirements in gas turbines is crucial to improving future aircraft propulsion capability. Existing compressor core cooling (CCC) techniques concentrate on rotor and casing thermal deflection matching during transients, but give limited compressor bore and cavity cooling. The proposed innovative CCC systems ...
