  2. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    The DoD requires new sources of eye safe, short pulse, laser radiation to enable the next generation laser radar (LADAR) seekers. Conventional eye safe laser sources using diode-pumped solid-state laser (DPSSL) and optical parametric oscillator (OPO) technologies have difficulties to meet the packaging requirements and to operate with constant pulse width at variable repetition rate. Also, the e ...

  4. High-Speed Headstock with B-Axis for Machining Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF05127

    The Air Force needs new higher productivity, higher accuracy equipment and processes for machining integral, complex aircraft airframe structures cost effectively. Structures with simply shaped pockets and straight walls can be effectively end milled using large high velocity machine tools. However, these machines cannot efficiently mill structures with integral return flanges and other complex ...

  7. Biological Effects Pattern Recognition Tool Using Multivariate Statistical Data Reduction


    We extend multivariate data reduction techniques developed in Phase I to the creation of a system for toxicogenomic fingerprinting and class prediction. Class discovery techniques explored in Phase I can generate a library of biomarkers for a number of toxic agents and exposures levels. The focus in Phase II will be on the development of class prediction and interpretation techniques that, based o ...

  9. Plasmaspheric and Enhanced Ionospheric Total Electron Content Monitoring

    SBC: Northwest Research Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF04040

    The integrated charge density through the ionosphere and plasmasphere along a line-of-sight, denoted Total Electron Content (TEC), is a quantity that influences the operation of various radio-frequency systems. Measurement of TEC is utilized in order to assess environmental or system impacts, with possibilities for correction or mitigation. The current primary source of TEC measurements is dual-f ...
