  5. Optical Jitter Control for Laser Communications

    SBC: A-TECH CORPORATION            Topic: AF06255

    Applied Technology Associates (ATA) proposes to design, implement, and test a prototype Laser Communications Optical Motion Mitigation (LCOMM) system to provide two critical control capabilities to laser communications systems: seamless switching between acquisitions and tracking modes, and handling short sensor outages while minimizing outgoing beam jitter to less that 1-μrad rms. An important c ...

  6. Compact HPM Sources

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: OSD05D07

    The current MATRIX source is a transmission line oscillator which operates at a maximum charge voltage of 300 kV with a center frequency of approximately 180 MHz and a Q of approximately 4. Although the MATRIX source has proven effective and reliable, a simultaneous increase in all of these operational parameters is limited by the physics of the current design. According to the OSD05-D07 Topic D ...

  7. Generation of Peptide-Based Ligands for Chemical and Biological Agent Identification

    SBC: Icagen, Inc.            Topic: AF071132

    Caldera will use its R&D 100 award-winning Reagentless Pharmacoproteomic Measurement (RPM) technology to develop chemical/biological (C/B) agent taggants for incorporation into a portable read-out device. RPM technology was developed at Los Alamos National Laboratory and licensed to Caldera. We propose: (1) to generate selective peptide-based capture agent molecules which form highly specific comp ...

  8. Microwave Pulse Compressor

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05D07

    High-Power Microwave fields with frequencies near 1 GHz have been shown to upset electronic equipment at a distance. The challenge lies in finding a high-power source that provides a pulse of continuous-wave power 20-30 ns in length, with reasonable efficiency, low cost, small size and mass, and peak power approaching 1 GW. Existing sources for this application include magnetrons and switched osci ...

  10. Aero-Optics Beacon

    SBC: MZA Associates Corporation            Topic: AF071002

    MZA proposes development and evaluation of optimal estimation methods for beacon measurement supporting adaptive optics compensation of aero-optics and free-stream turbulence. The proposed method takes into account the modal covariance properties of near-field and far-field beacon sources and their relation to the phase required for HEL correction. Optimal estimation can be adapted to several av ...
