  1. High Power 2-micron Fiber Laser Components

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093158

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Fiber laser operating in the 1.9-2.1micron wavelength regimes have achieved operating powers approaching 1kW. Such fiber lasers have great potential in the areas of laser radar, remote sensing, medicine, and infrared (IR) countermeasures. However, further development of these technologies is hindered by a lack of commerc ...

  2. Low-Cost Mid-Wavelength Infrared All-Fiber Source

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093212

    An all-fiber mid-infrared laser source offers many unique features that are key to next-generation infrared countermeasure systems. We propose a low-cost all-fiber mid-infrared light source operating in 2-5 micron wavelength range with ~1000watt average output power, based on our proprietary infrared glass/fiber technology. All-fiber monolithic design allows us to develop such a low-cost fiber las ...

  3. Innovative Broadband Infrared Coherent Fiber Image Bundle

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093216

    High spatial resolution infrared imaging fiber bundles are needed to spatially analyze combustion processes accessible only by probe penetrations into high pressure and/or high temperature regions such as turbine combustors and afterburners. Specialized infrared fibers including chalcogenide and ZBLAN fibers are typically very expensive and brittle and fragile. We propose to develop an innovative ...

  4. Isolator for Fiber Laser Amplifier Arrays

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF093008

    High power fiber lasers have made significant progress in last several years. Several kW of output power has been demonstrated, which enables a wide range of new applications from laser welding, laser cutting, and laser drilling to military defense. While high power fiber lasers have been successfully deployed in industry, one piece of critical components, fiber isolator, is still not available. F ...

  5. Advanced Dielectric Insulation Techniques for High Voltage Pulsed Power Systems

    SBC: Applied Energetics, Inc.            Topic: AF093014

    Current state-of-the-art, high voltage, pulsed power systems designed to drive high power microwave (HPM) sources utilize Marx generator designs. The high voltage insulation of these devices has been traditionally based on either high dielectric strength oil or sulfur hexafluoride (SF6). The dielectric strength of the insulating medium determines the minimum size of the tank enclosure of the Mar ...

  6. High Temperature Heat Pipes and Passive Two-Phase Cooling Systems

    SBC: CUBE Technology            Topic: AF093079

    This program is expected to result in a high-temperature heat pipe passive cooling system for space-borne phased array antennas. The innovative approach chosen for this project will result in a reliable g-force independent cooling system that is robust against launch and vibration forces as well as the zero-g environment of space. The system is lightweight, inexpensive, and efficient, and has th ...

  7. High Density or Multi-Functional Compact Power Source

    SBC: CUBE Technology            Topic: AF093098

    This program is expected to result in a compact, high energy density, silent propulsion system for small unmanned autonomous systems (SUAS). The innovative approach chosen for this project will substantially increase both range and time aloft of miniature unmanned air vehicles (UAVs), while using far less electricity. This will leave more available electricity for sensors and communications resu ...

  8. High Speed Digital Video on Legacy Aircraft Wiring

    SBC: DataSoft Corp.            Topic: AF093035

    The low data rate of the MIL-STD-1553B bus is limiting the capability and performance of current applications. These applications and others under development could be augmented by increasing the data rate under which these systems communicate. The Joint Helmet Mounted Cueing System (JHMCS) is one example of a system that could benefit from the increased data rate. The current 1553 protocol suppor ...

  9. Laser Beacon for Identification, Friend or Foe (IFF) and Combat Identification

    SBC: Diffraction, Ltd            Topic: AF093100

    The proposed multi-spectral IFF beacon will use 40 to 50 % effient high power laser diodes at 863, 1064, and 1550 nm wavelengths. Thermal emitters including diamond-like carbon thin films, photonic crystals, and quantum cascade lasers will be characterized and compared. Finally a model to predict the detection range of IFF beacons will be developed using proprietary emitter power and atmospheric ...
