  1. Blended Reality Solution for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as Pararescuem ...

  2. Infrared Micro-Laser Arrays for Target Image Projection

    SBC: ATTOLLO ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF16AT22

    Current scene projection hardware is challenged to simultaneously meet the requirements for high peak temperature (> 2000K), high resolution (2Kx2K), response time < 4 ms, cryogenic and temporally uniform photon flux. MEMS, Resistor arrays, liquid crystals, and photonic crystals all suffer in one or more areas. MEMS suffer from flicker and low dynamic range. Resistor arrays suffer from low frame r ...

  3. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking for Coupling with DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    Design analysis of parachute recovery systems has relied on a combination of core design principles, historical empirical data, and extensive testing for decades. Parachute motion involves complex phenomena involving porous bluff-body aerodynamics and highly deformable cloth. The proposed project is a plugin for the DoD CREATE-AV Kestrel simulation suite that will enable high-fidelity simulations ...

  4. Multi-Physics Models for Parachute Deployment and Braking

    SBC: Cmsoft, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT004

    The main objective of this STTR Phase I effort is two-fold. First, to develop a robust approach for coupling the flow solver Kestrel with the multidisciplinary software tool AERO Suite in order to enable the physics-based modeling and simulation of the dynamics of Aerodynamics Decelerator Systems (ADS) such as parachutes from deployment to terminal velocity or terminal descent and touchdown, and t ...

  6. Coupled Multi-Physics Tool for Analysis of Structural Profile Disruption Effects of Aerovehicles

    SBC: CFD Research Corporation            Topic: AF17AT025

    High speed air vehicles operate at material strength performance limits and are at significant risk when subjected to additional localized heating that can result in softening, pitting and burn-through the material and potentially change the vehicle structural profile. These effects degrade aerodynamic performance. The team of CFDRC and UDRI proposed to develop, validate and deliver a comprehensiv ...

  7. High speed, multispectral, linear polarization display

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT021

    To understand how insects and crustaceans sense and process light fields, researchers need a projection system that provides realistic wide field of view (FOV), high-speed imagery from UV to red (320-650nm) that includes polarization control. Insects and crustaceans have vastly different visual acuity and wavelength response from humans. In addition, some can sense polarization. Therefore, commerc ...

  8. Mechanically Static High Speed 3-D Optical/Digital Holographic Polarimeter

    SBC: Polaris Sensor Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT007

    Phase I of this effort involves the creation of a comprehensive end-to-end model of a novel holographic polarimeter.The polarimeter that can be constructed based on our model will be able to determine the full polarization properties (Mueller matrix elements) of scattering, reflecting and absorbing media as a function of the materials depth.Unlike previous attempts, this system will be a real-time ...

  9. Miniaturized Optical WDM Transmitter/Transceiver

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF18AT010

    The objective of this program is to develop, demonstrate and implement a low reconfigurable, reliable Free Space Optical (FSO) link supporting high bandwidth communications for satellite to satellite or satellite to ground communication. The FSO Transceiver (Transmitter/Receiver) to be implemented will be small Size, Weight, Power and Cost (SWaP-C) such that it can be easily carried by compact spa ...

  10. AgileBeam Reconfigurable Free Space Optical Communication System

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    Free Space Optical (FSO) communication systems provide many benefits for satellite communications, including high data rates and low Size, Weight and Power (SWaP) compared to traditional RF communication systems.Additionally, FSO systems operate without RF emissions and are inherently immune to RF interference and jamming.The narrow optical beams and small Field-of-View of the optical receivers al ...
