  7. Thermoelectrically Cooled MWIR Avalanche Photodiodes on Silicon Substrates

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: AF04T021

    Modern Air Force weapon systems need to detect, recognize and track a variety of targets under a wide spectrum of atmospheric conditions. Recent technology developments are paving the way toward imaging optical radars with wavelengths in MWIR range for these applications. The best suited detectors for optical radars are the avalanche photodiodes (APDs) due to their high gain-bandwidth characterist ...

  8. Thermoelectric Cooling of Photodetector Arrays with HgCdTe-based Superlattices

    SBC: EPIR TECHNOLOGIES INC            Topic: A05T013

    The most challenging degrading effect on current state-of-the-art focal plane arrays is caused by the random spatial and temporal photoresponse nonuniformity of the pixels. We propose a major improvement by controlling the temperature of individual pixels with individual thermoelectric coolers. We will use HgxCd1-xTe/HgyCd1-yTe superlattices (SLs) as the thermoelectric material. Two major benefits ...

  9. Adaptive, Web-based IMI Exercise-Generation Tool for Embedded Battle Command Training

    SBC: GLOBAL INFORMATION SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGY            Topic: A05T001

    Embedded training (ET) is the envisioned method for flexibly training an adaptive future force. Successful ET is more than the platform on which it is hosted or the realism of training exercises. Training must also be structured. IMI could be an efficient and effective means for delivering structured ET. This requires that an IMI exercise-generation tool be designed to support trainer interactivit ...

  10. Neural-Network-Based Adaptive Flow Control for Maneuvering Vehicles

    SBC: GUIDED SYSTEMS TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF04T027

    Conventional flow control methods employ actuation frequencies that are the same order as the characteristic frequency of the flow. Georgia Tech has demonstrated novel high-frequency synthetic jet actuation to modify the apparent aerodynamic shape of aerosurfaces and achieve quasi-steady flow reattachment over an otherwise separated airfoil. Practical application of this technology in dynamic ma ...
