  3. High Energy Laser (HEL) Beam Combination

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: OSD05D04

    Electrically driven High Energy Lasers (HELs) can perform target detection and illumination, missile defense, aircraft and area self-protection, and missions requiring precision engagement and/or graduated force/lethality. These lasers must provide at least 10 to 100 kW of output power with excellent beam quality, and have high electro-optical efficiency and output power to weight ratio, and have ...

  4. Head orientation sensing system

    SBC: APPAREO SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: AF071020

    Appareo Systems, LLC, proposes to develop a functional prototype head-mounted position and orientation system (HPOS). The HPOS will be capable of operating in electromagnetic fields of up to 200 volts/meter and will provide at least one degree of accuracy and at least one degree of resolution at a 60 Hz update rate while providing 3 degree of freedom (DOF) information on head orientation, includi ...

  5. Drill End-Effector for Robotic Drilling in Confined Space Aircraft Inlet Ducts

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF063C011

    The Air Force needs a Robotic Drilling System (RDS) for drilling and countersinking holes in JSF inlet ducts. We propose a team to develop all elements of a complete RDS: Robot/Robotic Application; Drill End-Effector (DEE); Metrology System; Cutting Tools; and an Automatic Tool Changer. This proposal focuses on the DEE. We propose to develop a Vacuum Nose-Lock/DEE (VNL/DEE). Robots can accurat ...

  6. Computer Controlled Bore Shaping Hone

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF071341

    The Air Force needs an automated system for honing various shapes of taper in smooth-bore tubes. We propose to develop an automatic bore hone (ABH) to meet Air Force needs. Our ABH will automatically produce required diameter profiles to tight tolerances. Bore-gage transducers measure the bore diameter. A hydraulic telescoping drive shaft deploys from a retracted length of 40 feet to a fully-d ...

  7. GPU Multi-Scale Particle Tracking and Multi-Fluid Simulations of the Radiation Belts

    SBC: Eagle Harbor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF07T022

    The radiation belts are a significant hazard to spacecraft, from generating single-event computer upsets to degradation of spacecraft surfaces and overall performance. The properties of the radiation belts can vary dramatically under the influence of magnetic storms and storm-time substorms. The task of understanding and predicting radiation belt properties is made difficult because their properti ...

  8. Dynamically Reconfigurable LADAR Waveform Generator

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: AF071236

    The focus of this SBIR is to investigate and develop a novel arbitrary optical LADAR waveform generator whose waveform can be dynamically reconfigurable at very-high-speed to meet a wide variety of adaptive target sensing requirements. Our unique new approach utilizes a novel RF-Photonic optical signal processing technique. The arbitrary waveform LADAR waveform generator is to be constructed usin ...

  9. Indium Antimonide Substrate Growth for Affordable Large-Format Mid-Infrared (IR) Imagers


    A key component for stealth defense is the megapixel InSb based infrared focal plane arrays (IRFPAs) used for fighter aircraft support and protection. A significant aspect inhibiting widespread military and commercial application of InSb IRFPAs is the size of the substrates. During Phase I, the Czochralski method was highly successful in growing larger diameter InSb boules that resulted in 149.2mm ...

  10. Radio Frequency/Microwave Hazard Assessment Tool (RHAZ)

    SBC: MOBILISA, INC.            Topic: AF071042

    Mobilisa and subcontractor Mikros Systems propose to develop the RHAZ analysis tool based on Mobilisa’s software package known as AIRchitect®, which already implements several of the key functions required. AIRchitect® was originally developed to model wireless networks onboard US Navy vessels, and incorporates advanced algorithms to simulate RF propagation, model 3D environments and determin ...
