  1. Real Time Intelligent Coaching for Command and Control

    SBC: Micro Analysis & Design Inc            Topic: N/A

    Epitaxial liftoff and grafting technologies offer excellent opportunities for new compact designs of multispectral optical sensing devices covering simultaneously two or more bands across the visible and the near-, mid-, and long-wavelength infrared regimes. Epitaxial liftoff technology can be used to separate the thin epitaxial semiconductor layers containing metal-semiconductor-metal photodetect ...

  2. Object Oriented PIC codes with Upgraded Physics and Platfor

    SBC: TECH-X CORPORATION            Topic: N/A

    A novel technique for the processing of c-dopcd Yb-Er optical fiber cladding pumped lasers will be explored. If high power at 1550 nm is desired, it is advantageous to pump a c-dopcd Yb-Er fiber laser at 915 nm where there is a broad energy absorption band for Yb.. This energy is then resonantly transferred to the erbium co-dopant that provides the gain medium. in order to prevent back transfer fr ...

  3. The Use of Boron Nitride for Improved Cold-Cathode Electron Field Emission Technology

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: N/A

    Low-power Hall thrusters offer potentially important advantages for certain military applications but issues of lifetime and efficiency degradation at lower powers are issues hindering its utilization. A factor impacting efficiency is that thestate-of-the-art techniques for electron generation used for neutralization (such as hollow cathodes operating on the same propellant as the thruster) do no ...

  5. Next Generation Hall effect Thruster Concepts

    SBC: Kaufman & Robinson, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The purpose of this proposal is the research and development of low power (about 100 W) close-drift thruster with improved magnetic field. The patented design of the magnetic field makes possible to dramatically reduce the permissible size of aconventional stationary plasma thruster (SPT) that is limited by magnetic saturation of the inner magnetic path. The thruster with our improved magnetic f ...

  6. The Software Therapist: Usability Problem Diagnosis through Latent Semantic Analysis

    SBC: KNOWLEDGE ANALYSIS TECHNOLOGIES, LLC.            Topic: N/A

    Knowledge Analysis Technologies (K-A-T) and Virginia Polytechnic Institute and State University (Virginia Tech) will partner to fulfill this Research and Development effort. We propose an unprecedented suite of Usability Engineering software tools to bebuilt upon the conceptual foundation of Virginia Tech's User Action Framework (UAF). We will use K-A-T's proprietary Latent Semantic Analysis (LS ...

  7. Conductive Polymer Elastomers as Gap Treatment Material for Aircraft

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force maintains a fleet of aircraft that depend on low-observability to successfully carry out their missions. This low-observability depends on a continuity of electrical conductivity at the outer mold line of the aircraft, and thus the panelseams and gaps must be filled with a conducting material. Currently, metal-filled elastomers or resins are used, but these materials suffer from po ...

  8. Induction-based Thermographic Inspection of Composites

    SBC: Thermal Wave Imaging Inc            Topic: N/A

    Rapid growth in the performance and capabilities of thermography, and the increased use of composite materials in the construction and repair of military and commercial aircraft, has strongly positioned it as a viable NDI technique. In Phase I, ThermalWave Imaging, Inc. and UD-CCM propose to develop an AC coupled, non-contact Non-Destructive Evaluation (NDE) technique that can evaluate 3-D state o ...

  9. Photonic nose" for chemo- and bio-agent detection: a novel surface enhanced Raman approach"

    SBC: Vescent Photonics LLC            Topic: N/A

    Surface enhanced Raman Scattering (SERS) has great potential as a tool chemical and biological detection. First, ultra-sensitivity is provided by remarkable Raman enhancement factors (>10^14); even delving into the ultimate limit for any sensor, singlemolecule detection. Second, since Raman scattering does not require a fluorescent analyte, SERS offers great generality in the range of detectable ...

  10. Nonintrusive fiber interferometer for ablative TPS recession measurement

    SBC: Electrodynamic Applications Inc            Topic: AF10BT04

    ABSTRACT: The next generation of hypersonic and reentry vehicles being designed for the Department of Defense (DoD) applications will require advanced Thermal Protection System (TPS). While new TPS shields are under development, a key difficulty is the ability to predict and diagnose TPS performance. ElectroDynamic Applications (EDA) has been developing an optical diagnosticfor use during testi ...
