  1. Practical Roots of Trust for Mobile Devices

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: HSB0132002

    To meet the critical security needs of the Department of Homeland Security and others, we propose two methods for providing a secure root of trust for mobile devices. One method is designed to integrate as easily into existing systems, while the other requires deeper integration but provides correspondingly stronger security. The keys to our work are practicality and integration: practicality to e ...

  2. High Efficiency 808-nm VCSEL Arrays with Excellent Beam Quality

    SBC: nLight Photonics            Topic: N122112

    Today"s high energy Q-switched Nd:YAG lasers are often pumped by stacks of multiple edge-emitting diode laser bars since the vertical-cavity surface-emitting laser (VCSEL) traditionally have been lower in efficiency. In this effort we are proposing a novel VCSEL design which overcomes the efficiency bottleneck in conventional VCSEL while preserving its beneficial attributes such as uniform beam in ...

  3. Efficient, Cost-Effective, Low-Emissions Method to Cutting Nuclear Submarine and Aircraft Carrier Hulls

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N123157

    The Navy needs a metal cutting system for submarine and aircraft carrier hull disposal. We propose to develop a Hull Cutting Mill (HCM) to meet Navy needs. Our HCM uses a compact high-speed high-power hydraulic milling head to perform slot-milling and achieve a fast lineal speed cutting high-tensile steel with a man-handle-able machine. Our HCM uses environmentally friendly water for its hydraulic ...

  4. Polarization insensitive diffraction grating for Navy tactical airborne high energy lasers (HEL) applications

    SBC: LightSmyth Technologies            Topic: N131017

    LightSmyth is a US based manufacturer of high power high efficiency polarization insensitive diffraction grating using unique, cost-efficient and high fidelity manufacturing technology. Gratings are etched into fused silica substrate and contain no organics or polymers. They may be as large as 150 mm in diameter with clear aperture up to 135 mm. LightSmyth is uniquely positioned to supply Navy wit ...

  5. Tethered VTOL Comms Relay Powered by Laser over Fiber

    SBC: LaserMotive, Inc.            Topic: N131039

    Analyze a tethered VTOL system capable of carrying and maintaining the required communications relay components to at least 500 feet AGL for up to four days continuously. The VTOL and comms relay package receive power delivered using laser power from the surface vehicle over fiber optic cable and converted into electricity on-board the VTOL craft via photovoltaics. Such a system is smaller, lighte ...

  6. Advanced Shipboard Mission Payload Handling System

    SBC: Quantum Engineering Design, Inc.            Topic: N131054

    The QED team proposes an Advanced Payload Handling System (APHS) capable of semi-autonomous and/or wireless remotely controlled, omni-directionally maneuvering operations. Selected design candidates will be evaluated with respect to their ability to provide an assured capability of acquiring and lifting both palletized and uniquely shaped payloads from the confines of a standard ISO container or f ...

  7. High Performance Radomes for Supersonic/Hypersonic Missiles

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N131056

    Conventional dielectric materials for radomes and windows for supersonic/hypersonic tactical missiles exhibit a number of performance limitations including inadequate thermal shock resistance, variations in electrical (dielectric constant and loss) and structural performance (mechanical strength) with temperature, and difficulty in fabrication to the desired shape. We propose to develop high stren ...

  8. Novel, Very Wide-Bandwidth Characterization Technique

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N131059

    EOSPACE proposes developing a practical, very-wide-bandwidth electrical characterization technique based on advanced photonic signal processing. The characterization method only requires a high-speed mm-wave source and uses exclusively low-speed optical detection, eliminating the need for high-speed photodiodes. This effort would build on the recent breakthroughs in ultra-wide-bandwidth electro-op ...

  9. Binary Static Previrtualization

    SBC: Galois, Inc.            Topic: N131061

    Modular software development helps enable application developers to quickly write sophisticated applications. However, in most instances only a small fraction of the functionality included in a particular software components is needed. Not only is there a performance cost, but the prevalence of security vulnerabilities suggests that even unused functionality in binaries and shared libraries can be ...

  10. Electromagnetic-Attack-Resistant Electro-Optic LiNbO3 Modulator

    SBC: Eospace Inc.            Topic: N131066

    The objective is to develop a wideband, high-sensitivity, high RF power handling optical modulator suitable for use in low-noise microwave photonic links associated with military and commercial antenna applications. Specifically, the modulator will be designed to be highly-resistive to electromagnetic attack from high-power microwave and electromagnetic pulse sources.
