  1. Practical Wind Tunnel Test Methodology for Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: Physics, Materials, and Applied Mathematics Research L.L.C.            Topic: AF131180

    ABSTRACT: There is an urgent DoD desire to better enable effective ground testing T & E methodologies in order to maximize the information return for DE systems. During the planning phase for wind tunnel tests, the finite number of options for positioning the source, target, and sensors are evaluated. If the dynamic environment of each location is known, a motion damping system can be used to mit ...

  2. Ultra-Lightweight and Low-Cost Space Telescope Mirrors using CFRP Composites

    SBC: Composite Mirror Applications inc            Topic: AF103117

    ABSTRACT: The current designs of telescopes for space borne applications use monolithic glass, beryllium, or silicon-carbide optics. With the existing optical technology, it is increasingly difficult or impossible to meet the new goals and requirements of AF, ORS, and other modern DoD missions. In particular, (a) rapid fabrication, response to needs, (b) ultra-lightweight optics, (c) compact si ...

  8. Light-weight, compact SWIR and MWIR imaging interferometer for space

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF131071

    ABSTRACT: We propose a novel SWIR/MWIR imaging system targeted for deployment at geosynchronous orbits. The new system is based on interferometric principles, is scalable, light-weight, and uses easily replicable inexpensive optics. The optics, detectors, and interferometric signal processing principles draw heavily on decades of experience in ground-based astronomical applications designed to yi ...

  10. Coherent Imaging Laser Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF131150

    ABSTRACT: Coherent imaging systems have the capability to provide high-resolution 3D imagery for target identification at stand-off ranges. These systems require relatively short pulse width, transform-limited linewidth pulsed lasers with high pulse energy to illuminate the target of interest. Here we proposed to demonstrate and build near 1550nm single frequency fiber laser with pulse energy of ...
