  1. An All-Fiber Mid-Infrared Frequency Combs

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: AF08BT16

    A low-cost fiber-based octave-spanning frequency comb system operating in the mid-IR region is proposed, which is based on femtosecond-Tm-fiber-laser-pumped supercontinuum generation in a mid-IR-transmitting dispersion-engineered fiber. An all-fiber femtosecond mode-locked Tm-doped fiber laser at 2 micron will be used as a seed source for mid-IR supercontinuum generation. A femtosecond soliton fib ...

  2. Low Cost Intelligence, Surveillance and Reconnaissance, Unmanned Aerial Vehicle (UAV)

    SBC: Sensintel Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    An approach to make a long endurance UAV with an 18 hour endurance and large payload will be developed based on an existing, fielded capability present operationally deployed.  The system will be built from COTS equipment minimizing cost and allowing for rapid maintenance and upgrading of the system as technology develops.  The system will be fully autonomous through launch, mission flight and r ...

  3. Handheld Real Time (RT) Climatic/Environmental Sensor

    SBC: VIRTUAL TECHNOLOGY LLC            Topic: AF073110

    This proposal will provide immediate decision support data, enabling appropriate and cost effective responses (shut down vs. continue) for training exercises/facilities. Specifically, the DoD requires the ability to “train as we fight and fight as we train”, however training is severely limited by visible emissions compliance in the current regulatory environment. Regulated facilities will hav ...

  4. A Computational Tool for Modeling Geometric Proximity of Independent Systems

    SBC: D&P LLC            Topic: AF083268

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes to develop an accurate viscous CFD algorithm which can include various small gaps between both static and moving components into the analysis. It is not an easy task to model those small gaps in the current CFD codes due to the geometric proximity, especially for moving components. However, those small gaps may have a significant impact on the aerodynamic, aeroel ...

  5. Unmanned Aerial System with Modular Payload Bays and Payload Interfaces

    SBC: Brock Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083006

    The Unmanned Systems market is exploding with applications, products and services. For example, an increasing number of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UASs) are serving the military, commercial and research markets today. However, these systems are generally limited to supporting a single particular sensor, payload, or concept of operation assigned at the design stage of development. Expansion of their ...

  6. Deformable, Variable Radius of Curvature Mirror (VRM) for Wide-FOV Zoom SSA Sensors

    SBC: Composite Mirror Applications inc            Topic: AF083195

    We are proposing to develop a variable radius of curvature mirror (VRM) produced from carbon fiber reinforced polymer (CFRP) composite materials. This will support a compact, lightweight, robust imaging system for space platforms than can survey a wide area for situational awareness and optically (NOT electronically) magnify an area-of-interest almost instantly without macroscopic motion.  Conven ...

  7. Enhancing High-Resolution Imagery for Space Situational Awareness with Lucky Imaging and Adaptive Optics

    SBC: Hart Scientific Consulting International LLC            Topic: AF083199

    We propose the development and laboratory demonstration of a method that will revolutionize the high resolution satellite imaging capabilities of ground-based optical systems.  Current imaging systems supporting Space Situational Awareness (SSA), even those equipped with state-of-the-art adaptive optics (AO), fail to exploit the intrinsic field of view of the imager at the full resolution of the ...

  8. Rate-Adaptive High-Availability RF Links

    SBC: LEAF NETWORKS, LLC            Topic: AF083043

    In an airborne network there may only be a limited window of opportunity for a fighter jet or even a soldier on the ground to participate in a communication network.   Any loss of connection during this limited transmission window due channel fluxuations is therefore extremely costly.  In this project we propose a multi-resolution system base on superposition coding that will avoid these commun ...

  9. Decision Support System Based On Collaborative-orientated System Engineering Cpabilities

    SBC: AIRTRONICS            Topic: AF083229

    The United States Air Force is faced with the substantial challenge of how to sustain an evolving global mission and Air Force supply chain in an era of constrained budgets and resources. In particular, resource constraints are being acutely felt in the logistics arena, where an aging fleet, more complex systems, accelerated operational tempo, and new business methods require a high level of adapt ...

  10. Replacement for Hexavalent Chromium Conversion Coatings for Magnesium and Zinc-Nickel

    SBC: METALAST INTERNATIONAL, INC.            Topic: AF083226

    The European Union''s RoHS and WEE Directives mandated the elimination of the carcinogenic, hexavalent chromium coatings for metals, including magnesium and zinc-nickel plated substrates.  The purpose of this project is to find chemistry that will meet requirements of industry performance specifications and of the mandate.  METALAST intends to explore trivalent chromium in conjunction with two o ...
