  2. Terahertz Devices

    SBC: Zaubertek, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The terahertz (THz) region of the electromagnetic spectrum is under-utilized for lack of convenient sources. In particular, there is no commercial solid-state far-infrared laser at sub-millimeter wavelengths. The objective of this STTR Phase II project isto deliver well-defined far-infrared solid-state laser products based on the p-Ge active medium. Phase I feasibility demonstrations included elec ...

  4. Modeling Languages and Analysis Tools for Complex Distributed

    SBC: Fremont Associates, LLC            Topic: AF04T023

    The Architecture Analysis and Design Language (AADL) is an SAE standard language for describing the software and hardware architecture of performance-critical real-time systems. In addition, the AADL standard allows the definition of annexes, i.e., formal extensions to the standard language to enhance the design specifications of hardware or software components. We propose to leverage the AADL la ...

  8. Electromagnetic Launching for Affordable Agile Access to Space

    SBC: Advanced Magnet Lab, Inc.            Topic: AF05T001

    The conceptual design of a novel, hypersonic electromagnetic launch system has been developed. Phase-1 assumed a 100-kg projectile leaving the launcher at 7,000 m/sec. The projectile is propelled and levitated by electromagnetic forces inside a tube filled with low pressure helium. A controlled acceleration profile, fully adjustable to the requirements of various missions, is used to reach 5000 ge ...
