  1. High Power, Mid-Infrared Fiber Supercontinuum Light Source

    SBC: MESA PHOTONICS, LLC            Topic: N/A

    Modern supercontinuum (SC) light sources are generated by non-linear interactions between ultrashort pulse lasers and optical fibers. Output in near-ultraviolet to near-infrared wavelength ranges has been demonstrated. These light sources have high brightness and are spatially coherent. Recently, output to 4.5 µm was achieved using fluoride glass fibers; optical absorption by the fiber prevents l ...

  2. Innovative Residential Fire Sensor

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Southwest Sciences proposes development of residential fire sensing systems based on low cost optical imaging sensors combined with newly introduced highly miniaturized, low power CO sensors. Sensor modules will also include temperature sensors. The modules will be part of a low power wireless network. Each module will be about ½ the size of a business card, a few mm thick, and will operate for ...

  3. A Microcalorimeter Alpha Spectrometer for Analysis of Nuclear Material


    A key factor of international efforts to identify and suppress the supply of and demand for nuclear materials, and thereby to deter potential traffickers, is the ability to accurately identify contradicted material and ultimately to trace it back to its origin. Alpha particle spectroscopy is widely used in nuclear forensics to assay trace quantities of sensitive nuclear materials, but the limited ...

  4. Precision High Alitude Sonobuoy Emplacement (PHASE)

    SBC: Advanced Avionics Incorporated            Topic: N08023

    This proposal seeks to develop innovative technologies to enable accurate placement of sonobuoy stores from high altitudes. This will be accomplished through a combination of numerical predictive modeling improvements and decelerator design improvements. An emphasis is placed on developing technologies that are compatible with existing systems, reliable in all expected conditions, and low cost.

  5. Commandable Mobile Anti Submarine Warfare Sensor (CMAS)

    SBC: Advanced Avionics Incorporated            Topic: N08008

    This proposal will investigate state-of-the-art sensor and propulsion technology and develop innovative design concepts compatible with the need to define and document a next-generation mobile ASW target simulator for Navy development. The research will explore active acoustic and non-acoustic sensor technology which is compatible with the severe packaging and cost constraints of airborne ASW exp ...

  6. Heat Pipe Cooling of Underwater Acoustic Projectors

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N08T020

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Phase I project will develop an innovative thermal solution to cool underwater acoustic projectors. More efficient cooling of the acoustic projectors will allow the devices to run at longer duty cycles, higher output powers and with longer service life. Current acoustic projectors use thermal conduction through the transducer parts to dissipate the waste hea ...

  7. Dropwise Condensation on Hydrophobic Wick Structures

    SBC: Advanced Cooling Technologies, Inc.            Topic: OSD08EP7

    The proposed SBIR project will develop an innovative heat transfer mechanism involving dropwise condensation promoted by a non-wetting self-assembled monolayer (SAM) on a porous metal wick. Dropwise condensation on a bare surface has shown the ability to increase condensation heat transfer coefficients by orders of magnitude over film condensation. By condensing on a wick, heat transfer coefficien ...

  8. Ultra High Frequency (UHF) Reuse Planning Tool for Increasing Capacity in Geo-synchronous Satellite Communications (SATCOM) Systems

    SBC: APPLIED DEFENSE SOLUTIONS, INC.            Topic: N07192

    Leveraging existing demand-based frequency and spatial allocation methods we will attempt to provide a baseline algorithm set and architecture for the development of a system wide frequency reuse planning tool for UHF satellite communications

  9. Aerodynamic/Structural Mistuning Technologies for Assessing IBR/Blisk Repairs

    SBC: Blade Diagnostics Corporation            Topic: N06T015

    Blade-to-blade variations in frequencies lead to the phenomenon of mistuning. Even very small amounts of mistuning can cause some blades to vibrate much more than others. Mistuning can cause an amplification of resonant response by up to 400 percent, and has been identified as a primary factor in HCF failures. One issue in setting blend limits is whether or not the blending operation will exacerba ...

  10. A Graphical Database for Streamlined Single Crystal Transducer Design

    SBC: TRS CERAMICS, INC.            Topic: N08063

    Single crystal piezoelectrics promise to revolutionize underwater acoustic and ultrasonic transducers with broader bandwidths, greater resolution, greater range, reduced transducer size and weight, and reduced power requirements. However, there are many differences between the properties of single crystal and ceramic piezoelectrics which make it difficult to simply replace ceramic with crystal in ...
