  1. Compact, All-Fiber-Based, Eyesafe Laser Source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force and other branches of the Armed Forces require new eyesafe short-pulse laser sources for many applications. These include laser rangefinders with improved range resolution, high-resolution range-gated imaging from UAVs and missiles, and asoptical drivers for frequency conversion to longer wavelengths for the identification of explosive materials, and biological or drug related thre ...

  2. High Energy Laser Diagnostics for Space Based Applications

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "In support of the SBL-IFX program, the Air Force Research Laboratory is interested in the development of advanced laser diagnostics that will provide diagnostic and monitoring optical tools to contribute to the success of the SBL mission. We propose here anovel laser system that can be used in a variety of applications related to this mission and can play a key role in the success of the SBL prog ...

  3. Biological Decontamination for Forward-Deployed Airbase Using Low Temperature Air Plasmas

    SBC: ASI TECHNOLOGY CORP.            Topic: N/A

    "ASI's plasma consultant, Igor Alexeff, PhD, has invented, tested and patented an atmospheric pressure, dc of 60 Hz AC discharge, that has been operated in air, helium, argon and nitrogen. The apparatus has in laboratory testing successfully destroyedmicroorganisms. The apparatus does not require a complicated, fragile RF power supply for operation. We propose it to be developed into equipment for ...

  4. Cooler for Space-Based Storage of Low-Temperature Cryogens

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force requires the capability to provide cryogenic cooling of electronics, focal plane arrays, and cryogenic fluids for long term (over five year) space missions. In Phase II, we propose to continue developing enabling technology for long-termspace-based low-temperature (

  5. Advanced Multi-Temperature Load Cooler

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The Air Force needs advanced multistage cryogenic cooling technologies. We propose to adapt cryocooler technology we are currently developing for the AFRL to multistage cooling. Our cryocooler technology has two potential advantages over othertechnologies: (1) more efficient operation at cold load temperatures; and (2) smaller size and lighter weight. These potential advantages will also apply ...

  6. Improved Composite Duct Design for Increased Safety Margin or Weight Reduction


    "Practical methodologies will be developed to efficiently design nonlinear composite ducts and panels with large anomalies and cutouts for buckling. The analysis system to be devised will be automated and integrated into the ANSYS finite element code usingits macro language capabilities, including optimization with parameterized shell and solid models of subject composite duct systems. Important f ...

  7. Phase-Change Cooling for Operational (Weapons)


    "Spray cooling is a very effective convective heat transfer method. Although it is known that spray cooling performance is highly fluid dependent, and decays rapidly with increasing surface area, the relationships still are not well understood.Perversely, the most precipitous decline in cooling capability seems to occur in the region of the most commercial, long-term interest: digital electronic ...

  8. Micro-discharge Arrays; Phase II

    SBC: EWING TECHNOLOGY ASSOC., INC.            Topic: N/A

    "This STTR Phase II activity will further develop arrays of micro-discharges and build 3 distinct UV lamp prototypes. Based on our Phase I results where we have succeeded in scaling from ~10 micro-discharges in parallel to 900 emitters on a common chip, wewill build novel lamps for germicidal, diagnostic and processing applications. The arrays will be fabricated using semiconductor processing me ...

  9. Qualifying Light, High-Performance Materials for Airborne Expeditionary Forces (AEF)

    SBC: Frederick T. Elder & Associates            Topic: N/A

    "Develop a rapid materials-selection strategy and demonstrate efficiency on critical high-energy laser components and vehicle structures. The chemicals used in chemically-driven laser systems are incompatible with many materials used in aircraft andspacecraft. In addition, materials that have been used for ground-based chemical laser systems pose extreme weight penalties for aircraft and space ap ...

  10. Advanced Multi-Stage Cryogenic Cooling Technology

    SBC: INFINIA CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    "Stirling Technology Company (STC) proposes to conceptually design a multi-stage cryocooler, capable of lifting up to 2 watts at 35 K with additional heat loads at higher temperatures and rejecting to an 300 K environment, that meets Air Force criteria forrobustness and compact size. The compressor will be based on STC's existing high-production linear alternator/motor design. Bench testing of t ...
