  1. Novel Fiber Lasers and Amplifiers

    SBC: Containerless Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    CR1 has pioneered a process that allows, for the first time, the synthesis of a new generation of optical fibers made of oxide glasses of compositions other than silica, such as Y203-A1203. Stanford University has expertise and instrumentation to characterize fiber laser materials and evaluate device performance. The proposed research combines these capabilities to demonstrate feasibility of new ...

  2. Xpatch Traceback Modification for Improved Signature Estimation and Model Validation

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The use of synthetic data for the generation of target signature templates is a vital element of current and future automatic target recognition systems. [1] [2] Although current synthetic signatures closely match their measured counterparts, they suffer from two shortcomings: 1) susceptibility to model error and 2) poor representation of signature variance. The current model validation relie ...

  3. Multi-Level Modeling and Simulation for Signal Integrity

    SBC: DEMACO, INC.            Topic: N/A

    With the increasing demand for higher component density and higher source frequencies in electronic circuits, the requirements for signal integrity and electro-magnetic compatibility have become paramount. Although some solutions exist for simpler packaging and signal integrity problems, the more challenging issues are the design, computational analysis and testing of piece-parts and systems. Re ...

  4. Development of High Quality and Large (3 & 4 Inch Diameter) Cd[sub 1-x]Zn[sub x]Te/Si Substrates Lattice-Matched to Hg[sub 1-x]Cd[sub x]Te

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: N/A

    The fabrication of large format, long wavelength (LWIR) mercury cadmium telluride based focal plane arrays (FPAs) is highly desirable for Air Force applications such as satellite power and array cooling reduction along with higher resolution. However, the development of large FPAs has been seriously impeded by the limited size of commercially available bulk Cd{sub 1-x}Zn{sub x}Te substrates. In ...

  5. Multifunction Phased Arrays- New Low Cost Scanner for Radar or Communications

    SBC: Epsilon Lambda Electronics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    Large planar arrays which consist of several hundred to several thousand antennas provide narrow, high gain pencil beams. Electronic beam steering for terminal guidance radar can be achiev ed using frequency scanning, beam switching, time delay or phase delay. Electronics steering allows beam manipulations in tens of nanoseconds using compact, mechanically rigid structures. Due to the increase in ...

  6. Dynamic Data Mining

    SBC: Expert Decisions            Topic: N/A

    The goal of the project is to produce an innovative information software architecture for intelligent, dynamic data mining; one providing direct support for intelligent agents and scalable to very large data/knowledge bases. The objectives are to develop a new technology, deductive data mining, and use it to harness necessary extensions of inductive data mining technology needed to address video, ...

  7. E-SMART Enabled Sensor Development

    SBC: Nomadics, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The E-SMART network provides a standard means for interconnecting sensors and actuators for a variety of uses, but was specifically developed for environmental applications. Nomadics proposes to develop a generic hardware and software interface to allow existing sensor technologies to be rapidly adapted to operate as E-SMART nodes. Using this enabling technology, Nomadics will implement a suite ...

    SBC: SOFTTHOUGHT, INC.            Topic: N/A

    SoftThought, Inc. proposes to continue the development of our Advanced Cerebral Emulator (ACE) which models image input as loosely organized shapes. The model is neurologically inspired and reflects the information processing techniques thought to be involved in the human brain. We use our shape analysis system, the Blob Descriptor Language (BDL) to convert salient features of an image into redu ...

  9. Bulk Periodically-poled Potassium Niobate Crystals for Mid-IR Opo Applications

    SBC: SPECTRAGEN, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This proposal seeks to fabricate bulk crystals of KNb03 which contain periodic domain structures using electric field poling of single-domain crystals which have photolithographically defined electrode patterns. Periodically-poled KNb03 crystals have the potential for widespread application for efficient generation in the wavelength range 3 -5 um using optical parametric iscillators. The specifi ...
