  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. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. Improved Cargo Pallet Restraint System

    SBC: Welkins, LLC            Topic: AF182050

    Our objective is to design an automated pallet restraint system (APRS), assess its feasibility and technical merit, and lay the framework for future prototyping, development, and commercialization thereof. In Phase I, we will design, model, and rapidly prototype the APRS to evaluate (and optimize) its efficiency and safety improvements.

  5. Liquid Injection Modeling for High Enthalpy Air Breathing Propulsion Applications

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: AF182056

    A critical aspect of high-speed air-breathing propulsion systems is liquid fuel injection into supersonic flow.The lack of understanding of primary and secondary breakup of liquid columns into droplets, spray plume interaction with shocks and droplet evaporation in high enthalpy flows can only be partially mitigated by targeted experiments.To fill in essential insight, the development of numerical ...

  7. Electronically Tunable Narrow-Band Infrared Focal Plane Array Based on the Quantum-Confined Stark Effect in Colloidal Quantum Dots

    SBC: SIVANANTHAN LABORATORIES, INC.            Topic: AF182068

    Spectral imaging in the infrared enables cameras to not only detect objects in the scene, but also provide information that can be used to determine their chemical composition. Variations in emissivity can be exploited using spectral imaging to improve contrast and object detection. In addition, certain spectral bands can be exploited to reduce visual degradation caused by dust and weather obscura ...

  8. Integrating the ALE3D Hydrocode with MEVA and Endgame Framework

    SBC: Illinoisrocstar, L.L.C.            Topic: AF182086

    The goal of this effort is to develop seamless integration between MEVA and Ale3D for high-fidelity modeling of penetrator performance, and lethality/vulnerability assessment. The approach proposed will enable inclusion of arbitrary physics-modeling capabilities as plugin extensions to MEVA utilizing Illinois Rocstar's in-house physics coupling software IMPACT and meshing software NEMoSys. Illinoi ...

  9. Medical Monitoring, Diagnostics, and Triage

    SBC: Nomo Diagnostics, Inc.            Topic: AF183004

    NoMo Diagnostics is developing the first embedded brainwave sensor system for real-time concussion detection addressing a significant unmet medical need for contact sport athletes and military personnel. Sport-related concussion is a common mild traumatic brain injury affecting roughly 1,200,000 Americans annually yet only 300,000 are diagnosed. Depending on the sport, it is estimated for every 1 ...
