  1. High Power, Electronically Steerable Quantum Cascade Lasers

    SBC: NOUR, LLC            Topic: N182109

    The goal of this proposed Phase I effort is to design and demonstrate a monolithic architecture for two-dimensional, all-electronic beam steering of a high power, mid-infrared laser. A photonic integrated circuit architecture is described which contains a widely tunable, mid-infrared quantum cascade laser integrated with a phase-adjustable amplifier array and a high efficiency grating outcoupler. ...

  2. Effect of Surface Finish and Post-Processing on the Fatigue Life of Additively Manufacturing Parts

    SBC: QUESTEK INNOVATIONS LLC            Topic: N182126

    In this Phase I SBIR, QuesTek Innovations will work with a leader in the field of surface finish engineering to pursue a tandem approach for developing techniques for surface finishing, and developing a modeling framework for predicting fatigue life based on surface finish. Exemplar models provided by the US Navy will be investigated with target alloy system(s) to fully demonstrate the technology ...

  3. Red Team in a Box for Embedded and Non-IP Devices

    SBC: Smart Information Flow Technologies, LLC            Topic: N182131

    Because Navy Cyber Physical Systems (CPSs) are often not connected to IP networks, yet still may be vulnerable to cyber attack, there is an urgent need for a portable device that can be connected to a variety of non-IP CPSs to assess their security posture. SIFT proposes to develop the CRIMSON Portable Red Team to automatically extract firmware from a target, analyze the firmware to find zero-day ...

  4. High Growth Rate GaN MOCVD Platform for Ultrahigh Voltage Devices

    SBC: AGNITRON TECHNOLOGY, INC            Topic: N182134

    Future DoD and Navy missions require advances in current high voltage power electronics technology. In this proposed effort, Agnitron will investigate the limitations of existing MOCVD technology and propose solutions towards an MOCVD system for Gallium Nitride capable of growth rates over 10um per hour at pressures from low to super atmospheric. The goal is to achieve low background concentration ...

  5. Open Call for Innovative Defense-Related Dual-Purpose Technologies/Solutions

    SBC: Pierce Aerospace, LLC            Topic: AF182005

    Pierce Aerospace (PA) proposes their Flight Portal ID (FPID) concept for advanced development with the DoD. FPID is an industry and internationally recognized blockchain based distributed identity system for Unmanned Aircraft Systems (UAS). FPID can provide DoD Identification Friend or Foe (IFF) services that enhance situational awareness in low-level airspace while serving and expanding capabilit ...

  6. Stable, Programmable, Solid State Solar Simulator for Long Duration Testing

    SBC: MicroLink Devices            Topic: AF182027

    Testing of materials and systems for satellites requires compact, stable and cost-effective solar simulators that accurately present the full AM0 spectrum, which spans a broad wavelength range from 200-2500 nm. Solar simulators typically use xenon or deuterium gas-discharge lamps, which can provide substantial power output in the ultraviolet (UV) and visible spectral ranges. Incandescent lamps are ...

  7. Detection and Intercept of FSO Interplane Communications Using Long-distance Transmission (DIFICULT)

    SBC: NUCRYPT LLC            Topic: AF182039

    It is inherently difficult to derive information from a free space optical (FSO) communication link unless you have access to the beam path. We will work to develop a targeted means of quickly measuring a laser beam direction from outside the beam path that exploits single photon detectors (SPDs). Single-photon-sensitive detectors are the most sensitive detectors possible, especially when multi-sp ...

  8. Improved Cargo Pallet Restraint System

    SBC: Welkins, LLC            Topic: AF182050

    Our objective is to design an automated pallet restraint system (APRS), assess its feasibility and technical merit, and lay the framework for future prototyping, development, and commercialization thereof. In Phase I, we will design, model, and rapidly prototype the APRS to evaluate (and optimize) its efficiency and safety improvements.

  9. Integrated Palletization Assist System (IPAS)

    SBC: Hy-Tek Manufacturing Co. Inc.            Topic: AF182050

    HMC conceived the Integrated Palletization Assist System (IPAS) as a simple and rugged system comprised of a swinging gantry arm that is attached to a rolling floor cart by means of hinged connections.The IPAS also includes a secondary static frame arm having a wide support roller at its top. In its simplest configuration the IPAS allows airmen to prearrange the top net and side nets on the ground ...

  10. Liquid Injection Modeling for High Enthalpy Air Breathing Propulsion Applications

    SBC: Tetra Research Corporation            Topic: AF182056

    A critical aspect of high-speed air-breathing propulsion systems is liquid fuel injection into supersonic flow.The lack of understanding of primary and secondary breakup of liquid columns into droplets, spray plume interaction with shocks and droplet evaporation in high enthalpy flows can only be partially mitigated by targeted experiments.To fill in essential insight, the development of numerical ...
