  1. Micromachined Fused Silica Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped fused coupler. A central robust fused silica structure will be micromachined. The pumps and signal fib ...

  2. Passive Wireless Corrosion-Monitoring Tags

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12aT001

    EngeniusMicro and the Georgia Institute of Technology propose a passive wireless sensor platform for the monitoring of corrosion on aircraft and for stored aircraft components. Multiple volumes, chambers, and compartments within aircraft are susceptible to corrosion damage because they are exposed to moisture, they trap heat, and they are difficult to inspect. Placing passive wireless corrosion se ...

  4. Miniature Static-Dynamic Cylinder Pressure Sensor

    SBC: Optrand Incorporated            Topic: OSD13EP5

    It is proposed to develop a 2.2mm diameter fiber-optic based sensor that measures both static and dynamic components of the cylinder pressure up to 350 bars over the frequency range of 0Hz to 20 kHz, operates at tip temperatures up to 450oC, and has the service life up to 20 thousands hours or 5 Billion cycles. The miniature sensing head and signal conditioner enable sensor integration with a dies ...

  6. High Range Resolution Radar for Flightline Boundary Surveillance

    SBC: PROPAGATION RESEARCH ASSOCIATES, INC.            Topic: AF121026

    ABSTRACT: In Phase I, PRA working with FLIR modified the command and control (C2) software for their Ranger series of perimeter surveillance radars to meet requirements for flightline boundary surveillance. These radars are ideal for this mission with a 30 cm range resolution, >97% probability of detection, and low false alarm rate (less than 3 per 24 hours). The C2 software was modified to allow ...

  7. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Thermal Response

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT: The ThermoReg thermal model was developed to solve for tissue temperatures resulting from radio frequency (RF) heating using a voxel-based, heterogeneous tissue description of the human body. Although ThermoReg has been parallelized to run on high-performance computer clusters, the time-dependent nature of a thermal solution (especially for tissue temperatures resulting from high-power, ...

  8. Real Time Structural Health Monitoring of High Velocity Impact Events

    SBC: EngeniusMicro LLC            Topic: A12019

    This effort investigates two specific technologies to detect and monitor structural damage from high-energy impacts and blasts. The two technologies include directional transducers and structural retrofitting concepts. The directional transducers localize impacts, and enable subsequent in situ assessment of structural integrity while minimizing sensor count, electronics complexity, and signal proc ...

  9. VSS+: A NEXT-GENERATION PREDICTIVE VEHICLE STABILITY SYSTEM

    SBC: Quantum Signal LLC            Topic: A12073

    Control of both manned and unmanned (i.e. autonomous or teleoperated) military vehicles is difficult for many reasons. As a result, vehicle accidents (most notably rollover) are one of the leading causes of casualty in Army operations (in manned vehicles) and disabling (in UGVs). Therefore, there exists a significant need to introduce vehicle stability enhancement technology to military vehicles. ...

  10. Operator Interface for Flexible Control of Automated Sensor Functions

    SBC: Soar Technology, Inc.            Topic: AF141027

    ABSTRACT: In the DoD vision for unmanned systems, there is the demand for a single operator to manage multiple ISR assets, including UAV platforms and their sensor systems. Some research has been conducted in supervisory control and delegation interfaces for unmanned systems, but these have focused on platform mobility rather than sensor systems. Furthermore, these interfaces have focused on high ...
