  1. Phased array ultrasonic aircraft fatigue damage inspection

    SBC: ACOUSTIC IDEAS, INC.            Topic: AF083246

    The practice of removing aircraft from service and disassembling parts of its structure for periodic inspection negatively impacts readiness and leads to high sustainment costs. Using Acoustic Ideas''''''''s uniquely powerful and versatile phased array technology we will develop a novel inspection method that does not require disassembly. Multiple layers, large thicknesses, dissimilar metals, seal ...

  2. C02/Water Microemulsion Fire Suppression in Dry Bays

    SBC: ADA Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF083250

    Fires in dry bays of military aircraft present a significant hazard that must be addressed with advanced fire suppression systems. The USAF is interested in concepts that do not require power or active sensing of fire for proper operation. ADA Technologies, Inc. has been developing fine water mist fire suppression technology for the past 10 years, and proposes a solution for this problem that inco ...

  3. Visualization for Command and Control of Cyberspace Operations

    SBC: VISITREND            Topic: AF083022

    We propose to research, design, and evaluate the feasibility of a Visualization for Integrated Cyber Command and Control (VIC3) system that fuses and displays vast amounts of multidimensional cyber security data from multiple sources to provide a unified view of the cyber battlespace. VIC3 will allow commanders to monitor cyber activity, correlate events, understand information dependencies, evalu ...

  5. Portable Missile Miss-Distance Identification System

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF083254

    Agiltron will develop and produce a low-cost and rugged yet highly accurate Portable Missile Miss-Distance Identification System (PMMDIS). The PMMDIS will be based on Agiltrons field-tested, low-cost uncooled photomechanical infrared imaging technology, the only technology to demonstrate high-frame rate (up to 1000 fps) imaging in an uncooled infrared camera, a domain that is usually reserved for ...

  6. Advanced infrared laser fibers

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF07T037

    This program will demonstrate, for the first time, a commercial prototype high power fiber laser in the 3-5µm band, based on Agiltron chalcogenide glass infrared optical fiber technology. High power IR lasers that emit multiwatt output at various infrared wavelengths in the 212µm region are a long-standing technical challenge. Fiber lasers, widely considered the choice for almost all high power ...

  7. SUAS-Mountable Multi-Spectral Photomechanical Imager

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF083137

    Agiltron will demonstrate a low-SWAP (size, weight, and power) multi-spectral imager based on our proven photomechanical IR imaging technology where an LWIR scene is transduced into a visible signal and optically readout by a visible CMOS or CCD imager. The multi-spectral photomechanical imager that will be developed in this program will provide imaging capability in four different wavebands—the ...

  8. Coherent 3D LADAR Vibrometer with fiber lens array beam steering

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF083168

    Building on the experience in coherent detection optical system design, in fiber lens array beam steering, in fiber optics component fabrication and high speed modulation development, in random surface light scattering, and in light propagation properties, AGILTRON proposes to establish a 3D LADAR Vibrometer for realizing target detection and identification. The proposed approach transfuses the gr ...

  9. High Performance Carbon Nanotube Heat Sink

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF083066

    Carbon nanotubes possess superior thermal conductivity along their axial direction, which is greater than that of diamond. Their nanoscale geometry offers incredibly high surface area for heat exchange with air and their one-dimensional nanostructures provide the possibility of forming extremely intimate contact between nanotube tips and die surface. Thus, carbon nanotube heat sinks have the poten ...

  10. Nanodielectrics for High Energy Density Capacitors

    SBC: AGILTRON, INC.            Topic: AF083085

    Agiltron, in collaboration with the Nanodielectric Group headed by Prof. Lei Zhu and Steven Boggs at the University of Connecticut (UConn), proposes a novel nano-engineering approach to develop a new category of nano-dielectrics for high energy density capacitor applications. The new approach combines the cutting-edge nanomaterials development and manufacture at Agiltron and extensive experience i ...
