  1. Integrated Laser Electronics

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N03175

    Commercial-off-the-shelf (COTS) components may be used to reduce the cost of the laser electronics needed for mid-infrared lasers being developed for infrared countermeasures applications. The Phase II project will develop circuit designs for these laser electronics using COTS components and demonstrate these laser electronics can operate in military environments. The laser electronics will be v ...

  3. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    The DoD requires new sources of eye safe, short pulse, laser radiation to enable the next generation laser radar (LADAR) seekers. Conventional eye safe laser sources using diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) and optical parametric oscillator (OPO) technologies have difficulties to meet the packaging requirements and to operate with constant pulse width at variable repetition rate. Also, the e ...

  5. Wavelength Conversion of Pulsed Fiber Lasers

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: SB052027

    First generation mid-infrared lasers contribute to the prohibitively high life cycle cost of infrared countermeasures systems, precluding their broad application in helicopters. We propose to develop a fiber amplifier-based IRCM laser transmitter that will contain all optical beams within optical fiber, eliminating adjustable, discrete, optical mounts, to significantly increase the laser's MTBF. ...

  6. High-Speed Headstock with B-Axis for Machining Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF05127

    The Air Force needs new higher productivity, higher accuracy equipment and processes for machining integral, complex aircraft airframe structures cost effectively. Structures with simply shaped pockets and straight walls can be effectively end milled using large high velocity machine tools. However, these machines cannot efficiently mill structures with integral return flanges and other complex ...

  7. Chemical/Biological Agent Non-Intrusive Detection

    SBC: Brandt Innovative Technologies, Inc.            Topic: DTRA05005

    We propose to demonstrate the ability to non-evasively probe the characteristics of material properties using acoustical waves through thermal conversion of a remote laser pulse. The advantages of proposed system as an inspection and identification technique are: 1) Non-contact: Sensor does not require contact with container 2) Stand-off: Sensor could be located many meters away from container 3 ...

  8. A Tool for the Simulation of Thermal and Chemical Effects on Turbine Engine Component Parts

    SBC: Computherm, LLC            Topic: AF04155

    CompuTherm proposes to develop a tool which will enable the simulation of thermal and chemical effects on turbine engine component parts made of Alloy 718 during heat treatment and service. The proposed innovative tool will include a thermodynamic database which covers all the phases for Alloy 718 and a software package which integrates both thermodynamic and kinetic models. The tool can be used t ...

  9. Fundamentally New Therapeutic for the Treatment of Acinetobacter Baumannii Wound Infections

    SBC: CONJUGON, INC.            Topic: A05170

    An increasing number of infections caused by the pathogenic and multi-drug-resistant bacterium Acinetobacter baumannii has been reported in patients at military medical facilities in which service members were injured in the Iraq/Kuwait region during Operation Iraqi Freedom and in Afghanistan during Operation Enduring Freedom. Due to their drug resistance, these infections have been difficult to ...

  10. Rapid Soil Texture Classification Using the Soil Imaging Penetrometer

    SBC: Soil and Topography Information            Topic: A04152

    Soil texture is a critical soil information input to site suitability, mobility, counter-mine, and engineering models. Traditional methods of obtaining soil information are inefficient, inconsistent, and could require time-consuming and expensive laboratory analyses. In addition, a high level of soil expertise may be required on-site. A soil imaging system could provide a more efficient and con ...
