  1. Resonant Cavity Enhanced Photo-Diodes for LWIR Communications

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151050

    ABSTRACT:The LWIR spectrum is well suited for moderate- to long-range free space communications because of its atmospheric window and low scattering by dust, haze, precipitation, and fog. The recent impressive laser development of QCLs is poised to provide the high speed LWIR transmitter for such a free space communication system; a corresponding advance in LWIR detectors is needed to enable the h ...

  2. Hydrogenation of SLS for Defect Mitigation of III-V-based Infrared Detectors

    SBC: AMETHYST RESEARCH INCORPORATED            Topic: AF151132

    ABSTRACT:Type II strained-layer superlattice (SLS) materials are predicted to have much lower Auger recombination rates than those of HgCdTe, leading to lower dark currents; however, they are limited by Shockley-Read-Hall recombination via defect states near mid-gap. Hydrogenation is a technique that has proven to be effective in electrically passivating defects in various semiconductor-based devi ...

  3. Non-Destructive Inspection Data Capture

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF151162

    ABSTRACT: An organizational culture that promotes problem solving is necessary for success in any organization. Nondestructive Inspection (NDI) is the inspection of a structure or component in any manner that will not impair its future usefulness. The purpose of the inspection may be to detect flaws, measure geometric characteristics, determine material structure or composition, or it may characte ...

  4. Decision Support System Based On Collaborative-orientated System Engineering Cpabilities

    SBC: ANAUTICS, INC.            Topic: AF083229

    As the Air Force (AF) begins the progression of applying systems engineering from the top-level definition of the system architecture down to a granular level of design it is very important to also realize the changes that will be taking place through Technology Insertion initiatives. Continuous system engineering is required to preserve the integrity of a system, facilitate the development of new ...

  5. Perching Micro Air Weapon

    SBC: Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC            Topic: AF083096

    Design Intelligence Incorporated, LLC (DII) proposes an integrated design approach for an innovative perching micro air vehicle (MAV) using energy harvesting.  The proposed design concepts will build upon DIIs proprietary energy harvesting technology and hardware and will include innovative biomimitic MAV design concepts. In particular, DII proposes MAV design concepts that focus on energy harves ...

  6. Corrosion Prevention Coatings

    SBC: Sciperio, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Military aircraft are largely constructed from special aluminum alloys, which typically have secondary precipitate phases that substantially improve mechanical strength. However, these regions also promote corrosion in such common environmental conditionsas acid rain, saltwater, and thermal cycling. The problem is significant enough that the U.S. Air Force expends approximately $1 billion per ye ...

  7. Mid-Infrared Laser Development for Environmental Monitoring Systems

    SBC: Ekips Technologies, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This Phase I SBIR project will demonstrate the feasibility of a novel method for monitoring volatile organic compounds (VOCs) such as ubiquitous hazardous solvents in military or industrial environments and their neighboring communities. The long-termobjective of the project is to develop and commercialize a real-time, on-line and autonomous mid-infrared laser spectrometer specifically designed fo ...

  8. Trichlorcethylene Treatment via In-Situ Microbial and Chemical Oxidation Technologies

    SBC: SURBEC-ART ENVIRONMENTAL, LLC            Topic: N/A

    The primary objective of this proposal is to select an effective in-situ technology for remediating PCE/TCE at Tinker Air Force Base. A secondary objective of the work is to develop a protocol that can be used for identifying feasible in-situ approachesfor chlorinated solvent degradation on a site-specific basis. The four remedial technologies that will be evaluated include anaerobic dehalogenat ...
