  1. A Balanced Photodetection Fiber-optic Link Using a Dual-Core Fiber

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N182101

    A high-fidelity RF/Analog fiber-optic link based on a balanced photodetection using a dual-output modulator and a balanced photodetector pair offers significant improvement in RF gain, low noise figure (NF) and enhanced spur-free dynamic range (SFDR). It requires the use of path-length matched dual fibers to achieve proper noise cancellation. The objective for this SBIR is to develop a balanced fi ...

  2. Multicore Fiber Optic Connector for Wideband Digital and Analog Photonic Links

    SBC: Chiral Photonics, Inc.            Topic: N182102

    Fiber optic data links are attractive for their wide bandwidth, low weight, electromagnetic interference immunity and ability to transmit high fidelity analog and digital radio-frequency-over-fiber (RFoF) signals. Multicore fiber (MCF) links will provide even higher capacity and density and enhance dynamic range analog links using parallel fibers of precisely equal length. The need for a high-qual ...

  3. Carbon Nanotube Windshield Heater

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N182103

    Creare is proposing to develop a heater utilizing carbon nanotubes (CNTs) that will have high temperature uniformity and high optical transmission with low glare. By creating a variable effective sheet resistance across the windshield, we will be able to produce a robust design that can be flexed and easily scaled up to a production environment. In Phase I, we will fabricate and test a coupon size ...

  4. A Novel System for On-Site Structural Restoration Methods for Aircraft Components

    SBC: CREARE LLC            Topic: N162087

    Navy aircraft components require constant repair due to damage from field operations. In most cases, the damage is due to maintenance occurrences or service, due to Foreign Object Debris (FOD). Although the damage appears to be minor, the components need to be sent back to a Navy depot for disposition and repair, which is usually comprised of blending away the damage and substantially reducing the ...

  8. Precision Machining of Composite with Waterjets

    SBC: Ormond, LLC            Topic: N181028

    Waterjets are widely used to cut and trim composites and techniques have been developed to trepan and pierce materials without causing delamination or fiber break-out on the exit side. However, using waterjets to mill countersunk holes has not been demonstrated before. This project will use a patented waterjet milling process to show that waterjets can successfully mill countersunk holes in compos ...
