  1. Atomic Layer Deposition on Particles for Nanoenergetic, Ferroelectric Capacitor and Thermal Management Applications

    SBC: ALD NANOSOLUTIONS, INC            Topic: AF02T007

    High performance energetic materials are based on inorganic thermite mixtures such as MoO3/Al or organic compounds such as RDX. Future developments in explosives are dependent on the fabrication of nanoscale materials and composite mixtures that display higher energy release rates. The ability to tailor composite materials precisely at the nanoscale by fabricating multilayer component particles ...

  2. Portable E-beam Pumped UV/X-ray Bio-decontamination System

    SBC: ASTRALUX, INC.            Topic: AF04004

    Biological warfare agents pose a grave threat to the United States, as events of the last few years have shown. The malicious delivery of Bacillus anthracis spores to government and private-sector buildings through the U.S. mail system in 2001, was a prime example. The U.S. Armed Forces currently rely on three outdated biodecontamination solutions, which have been used over the last 40 years: ...

  3. SPARCE APERTURE ADAPTIVE OPTICS FOR A DYNAMIC ENVIRONMENT

    SBC: Boulder Nonlinear Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF05222

    Development of air-to-air and air-to-ground imaging LADAR systems with high resolution is a difficult problem, because transmit and receive signals are distorted by atmospheric turbulence along the beam path. The distortion has high-frequency spatial and temporal components due to the movement of the platform. To dynamically correct the turbulence viewed from a tactical platform, the adaptive op ...

  4. Advanced Modular EV/HEV Energy Storage System

    SBC: BOUNDLESS CORP.            Topic: AF04275

    This project addresses the need for higher fuel economy, reduced pollutants, and increased performance associated with electric and hybrid-electric vehicle (EV and HEV) batteries. Standardized battery modules that support a wide variety of vehicles promise dramatic increases in performance, reliability and life-cycle cost. A standard 24V lithium-ion “building block” will fit in the envelope ...

  5. Variable Electrochromic Devices (VEDs) for Space Simulation Testing

    SBC: SiC Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF05299

    We propose to demonstrate the feasibility of an infrared (IR) beam combiner based on variable electrochromic devices. The optical properties of an electrochromic material are dependent on an applied voltage. Therefore the use of electrochromic materials will allow for significant variation of the combining mirrors' reflection and transmission properties without necessitating the swapping of compo ...

  6. Frequency-Agile Laser for Low Earth Orbit Satellite Velocity Compensation

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04001

    Frequency-agile lasers with ultra-narrow linewidth are required for several coherent laser applications, including correction for Doppler frequency shifts between satellite platforms in low earth orbit. Coherent Technologies, Inc. proposes to develop a compact near-monolithic laser operating at 1.064 microns, tunable over its full range of 60GHz in 1ms. This tuning range allows correction for al ...

  7. Laser Vibrometry System for Space Situational Awareness

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05004

    CTI proposes to develop a ground-based coherent laser radar for satellite vibration measurements. This system will be designed to make measurements of surface vibrations of satellites in orbits of up to 1000 km altitude. The vibration measurements will yield velocity power spectral densities up to 1 kHz. The proposed system will also be designed to work with existing telescope and satellite tracki ...

  8. High Speed Readout for Photodiode Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05223

    State-of-the-art wide temporal bandwidth laser radar detectors require high-speed, wide bandwidth, low noise Read Out Integrated Circuits (ROICs) to take advantage of the 1+ GHz bandwidth detectors and exploit a richer set of target signatures at increased spatial resolution. Today's CMOS semiconductor based ROICs do not support the noise/bandwidth/power requirements for emerging 1 to >10GHz bandw ...

  9. Low Cost Adaptive Optics for Tactical LADAR

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF05222

    Future military aircraft will rely heavily on active laser systems to perform functions such as reconnaissance imaging, target designation, communications and directed energy. However, there is significant difficulty in overcoming the effects of atmospheric turbulence and platform vibrations. Accommodating the large aperture sizes required for high-resolution imaging is also a significant challen ...
