  2. Development of a Micro-glider for Oceanographic Air-Sea Interaction Sampling

    SBC: MRV Systems, LLC            Topic: N14AT020

    This proposal is a collaborative effort between MRV Systems and the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution. The goal is to develop a new, small, inexpensive autonomous vehicle to investigate mixed layer dynamics and turbulent mixing. The preliminary Phase I design, a Diagonally Operating Platform (DOP), is a profiling float with moveable fins. DOP will turn toward an intended direction within a few ...

  4. Solid-State Fundamental Mode Green Laser for Ocean Mine Detection

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: N13AT023

    Areté proposes the development of Q-switched semiconductor lasers that can be scaled to produce high output peak powers within the blue/green wavelength band. The proposed system will utilize nanostructure quantum wavefunction engineering for gain material designs having extended excited state lifetimes and suppressed non-radiative processes to enable energy storage for high-peak-power optical pu ...

  6. Compact robust testbed for cold-atom clock and sensor applications

    SBC: Coldquanta, Inc.            Topic: N13AT018

    Our goal in this Phase II effort is to construct and test a compact, robust testbed for generating laser-cooled strontium atoms on a mobile platform. The focus of the Phase I effort was designing and fabricating an ovenized strontium source that also serves as a 2D+ MOT cell. In Phase II, we will integrate the strontium source into an all-glass-and-silicon vacuum system maintained by a miniature i ...

  7. Aircraft Carrier-based Precision Ship-Relative Navigation Guidance for Aircraft Landing under Emissions Control Conditions

    SBC: COHERENT TECHNICAL SERVICES, INC.            Topic: N15AT014

    The ability to refuel piloted aircraft in flight is considered a strategic military advantage and has been a critical element of success in nearly every US and NATO military engagement of the jet age. One key asset used to facilitate aerial refueling is PMA-201’s Aerial Refueling Store (ARS), which allows fighters and other store-carrying aircraft to be reconfigured as tankers. The ARS is set to ...

  9. In Situ Inspection of Additive Manufactured Metallic Parts Using Laser Ultrasonics

    SBC: Intelligent Optical Systems, Inc.            Topic: N15AT008

    Additive manufacturing (AM) is a very promising technique for rapid, low-cost production of aircraft parts directly from a CAD file. AM is especially appealing for complex parts that would be costly or impossible to fabricate by machining or casting. At the current time there are no reliable, cost-effective techniques to qualify the finished parts. Several government studies have noted this gap an ...

  10. Object Cueing Using Biomimetic Approaches to Visual Information Processing

    SBC: MAYACHITRA, INC.            Topic: N14AT008

    Thousands of years of evolution have produced the human vision system that computers cannot replicate well. Humans are still unsurpassed in their ability to search for objects in visual scenes. To successfully detect objects in cluttered scenes, the human brain is thought to rely on multiple factors: prior probabilities of object occurrence, global scene statistics and object co-occurrence. Machin ...
