  3. New Laser Eye Protection (LEP) Technology for Visors

    SBC: AEGIS TECHNOLOGIES GROUP, INC., THE            Topic: AF083013

    Laser eye protection has become increasingly important due to the availability of laser sources (continuous and pulsed) over a broad range of wavelengths. This is particularly the case where table top femtosecond laser pulses (~50femtoseconds) with peak powers reaching the Terawatt  scale are commercially available in the visible and near infrared.  The military uses many laser systems (e.g., tr ...

  4. Two-Beam Transmit Satellite Antenna for Limited Field-of-View (FOV)


    The objective of this Phase II SBIR effort is to develop and demonstrate a low cost, lightweight, two independent simultaneous transmit beam antenna for use in SATCOM systems like the Transformational Satellite Communications System (TSAT) downlink. The current MILSATCOM system supports one downlink antenna beam in the frequency band 20.2-21.2 GHz. The goal of TSAT is to transform communications ...

  5. Aging and Surveillance Technology for Solid Rocket Motors

    SBC: Analytical Services, Inc.            Topic: AF083115

    ASI proposes an innovative and numerically-efficient approach to the modeling of crack propagation in solid propellant rocket motors.  Our technology uses a coupled fluid-structure interaction model that is enhanced with an embedded grid capability.  Such an approach eliminates virtually all of the bottlenecks that occur in traditional approaches, through elimination of the re-gridding that must ...

  6. Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne Spectrometer (DASH) for Measuring Winds in the Upper Atmosphere (90-300km)

    SBC: ARTEP, INC.            Topic: AF073103

    This scope of this Phase II proposal is to develop a space flight prototype Doppler Asymmetric Spatial Heterodyne (DASH) spectrometer for the measurement of upper atmospheric winds.  A space flight prototype instrument will be built and tested to show DASH can successfully measure simulated Doppler winds in an environment similar to the environment it would be operating in on orbit.  This Phase ...

  7. Rapid Design, Analysis, and Test of Hypersonic Propulsion Integrated Configurations

    SBC: ASTROX CORP.            Topic: AF073091

    The Air Force Research Laboratory Air Vehicles Directorate needs to be able to rapidly develop hypersonic vehicle concepts and to do so with as little risk as possible. A new technology called Rapid Prototyping will assist the Air Force in reducing risk in choosing the best path for fielding hypersonic vehicle systems. This technology will allow the rapid testing of many concepts, thus adding conc ...

  8. Geospatial Intelligence Analyst Knowledge Preservation Tools


    This proposal describes a specific problem within the Intelligence community. Because of a lack of GEOINT tools for capturing storing and delivering expert knowledge from experienced analysts, new analysts have difficulty in quickly gaining the level of skill that those expert analysts possess.  Recent work in cognitive science has shown that engineers presented with knowledge from domain experts ...
