  6. Development of the Hypersonic Environment- Sensor EO/IR Effects Software (HySEES)

    SBC: Spectral Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF15AT40

    ABSTRACT: Electro-optic/infrared (EO/IR) sensors are key to the mission success of future hypersonic vehicles. Although EO/IR sensors have been extensively used for subsonic flight regimes, the hypersonic flight regime creates new conditions and complexities with significant impact on optical sensors. These complexities include turbulent, high temperature gas that is in Non-Local Thermodynamic Equ ...

  10. Transparent Non-Cubic Ceramics Using Magnetic Fields to Control Microstructural Orientation

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT26

    ABSTRACT: This effort is a close collaboration between RMD and Alfred University. Our goal is to develop a process for producing optical ceramics with properties approaching or exceeding single crystals. Ceramic processing can provide enhanced performance, lower cost, higher yield, relaxed constraints on size and shape, and materials that are difficult or impossible to grow as crystals. We will ...
