  1. High Power, Electronically Steerable Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N182109

    The goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to design and demonstrate a monolithic architecture for two-dimensional, all-electronic beam steering of a high power, mid-infrared laser. A photonic integrated circuit architecture is described which contains a widely tunable, mid-infrared quantum cascade laser integrated with a phase-adjustable amplifier array and a high efficiency grating outcoupler. ...

  2. Noninvasive Hydration Monitor for Challenging Environments

    SBC: KCF TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N182114

    A noninvasive wearable sensor to accurately measure and inform the hydration of naval aviators in the flight environment is proposed. It uses multifrequency bio-electric impedance analysis to accurately measure skin hydration and Total Body Water content and provide feedback to the user in real time. The proposed wrist-worn band is self-contained, durable, suitable for an extreme range of environm ...

  3. Fiber-Optic Condition-Based Management System

    SBC: Fbs, Inc.            Topic: N182125

    There is a need for a condition based management system to continuously monitor aging and new naval systems. A fiber optic (FO) system is uniquely positioned to provide accurate, non-invasive, and continuous real-time assessment of parameters such as temperature, load, vibration, impact events, and acoustic emissions. In addition, new power-over-fiber methods have been identified to generate contr ...

  4. Effect of Surface Finish and Post-Processing on the Fatigue Life of Additively Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N182126

    In this Phase I SBIR, QuesTek Innovations will work with a leader in the field of surface finish engineering to pursue a tandem approach for developing techniques for surface finishing, and developing a modeling framework for predicting fatigue life based on surface finish. Exemplar models provided by the US Navy will be investigated with target alloy system(s) to fully demonstrate the technology ...

  5. Minimization of In-Band Interferers on Airborne Anti-Submarine System Performance

    SBC: RDA INC.            Topic: N182116

    Airborne ASW systems and sonobuoys operate in selected portions of the acoustic spectrum. Passive and active sensors not only contend with friendly forces operating in-band but must contend with other non-cooperative signals that degrade sensor performance including environmental interference, unintended out of band transmissions from our own sensors, and commercial interference from other sources ...

  6. Airborne ASW System Interferer Minimizer

    SBC: NOKOMIS, INC            Topic: N182116

    To reduce the false positive and false negative detection and identification of submarines, Nokomis proposes to build an artificial intelligence (AI) algorithm suite, in conjunction with its ultra-sensitive signal detection capability, to minimize the in-band interferences on existing airborne anti-submarine warfare (ASW) systems.To minimize the background noise and interference, the signal source ...

  7. Compact Hyperspectral Infrared Sounding Instrument Mission

    SBC: Brandywine Photonics, LLC            Topic: AF182001

    The MetNet Space Consortium is currently developing a network of LEO small weather satellite constellations including imagers, upper atmosphere dynamics, microwave, space weather, and most importantly Hyperspectral IR Sounders. The proposed Compact Hyperspectral Infrared Sounding Instrument (CHISI) mission would provide one of the top observations needed for improving weather forecasts through tem ...

  9. Stable, Programmable, Solid State Solar Simulator for Long Duration Testing

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF182027

    Testing of materials and systems for satellites requires compact, stable and cost-effective solar simulators that accurately present the full AM0 spectrum, which spans a broad wavelength range from 200-2500 nm. Solar simulators typically use xenon or deuterium gas-discharge lamps, which can provide substantial power output in the ultraviolet (UV) and visible spectral ranges. Incandescent lamps are ...

  10. Detection and Intercept of FSO Interplane Communications Using Long-distance Transmission (DIFICULT)

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF182039

    It is inherently difficult to derive information from a free space optical (FSO) communication link unless you have access to the beam path. We will work to develop a targeted means of quickly measuring a laser beam direction from outside the beam path that exploits single photon detectors (SPDs). Single-photon-sensitive detectors are the most sensitive detectors possible, especially when multi-sp ...
