  1. Phase-stabilized 1-GHz Fiber-laser Frequency Combs at 2-5micron for Coherent Fourier Transform Spectroscopy

    SBC: AdValue Photonics Inc            Topic: N/A

    A GHz-rate phase-stabilized fiber-laser frequency comb system is proposed to be used as a light source for coherent Fourier transform spectroscopy. The system will be developed based on our proprietary glass/fiber technology, which features a low-cost, robust, highly stable, mid-infrared light source that enables the development of a robust portable c-FTIR spectrometer for absorption measurements ...

  2. 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 ...

  3. 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 ...

  4. 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 ...

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

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF083229

    As the Air Force (AF) begins the progression of applying systems engineering from the top-level definition of the system architecture down to a granular level of design it is very important to also realize the changes that will be taking place through Technology Insertion initiatives. Continuous system engineering is required to preserve the integrity of a system, facilitate the development of new ...

  6. 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 ...

  7. Perching Micro Air Weapon

    SBC: Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC            Topic: AF083096

    Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC (DII) proposes an integrated design approach for an innovative perching micro air vehicle (MAV) using energy harvesting.  The proposed design concepts will build upon DIIs proprietary energy harvesting technology and hardware and will include innovative biomimitic MAV design concepts. In particular, DII proposes MAV design concepts that focus on energy harves ...

  8. Method of Locating Unexploded Ordnance

    SBC: MAV6            Topic: AF083236

    The Unexploded Ordnance Asset RFID System (UARS) is an active low frequency RFID tracking system designed for locating unexploded ordinance (UXO) on the battlefield.  The system is a passive thin collar RFID tag that is placed onto the munition during manufacture and becomes activated after delivery on target.  Once activated, the RFID tag enters a passive listening mode, waiting for a specific ...

  9. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
