  2. Polychromatic guide-stars using novel optically pumped semiconductor disk lasers

    SBC: Crystalline Mirror Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF17AT005

    During the last two decades, vertical-external-cavity surface-emitting lasers (VECSELs) have emerged as excellent high-power laser sources that combine diode-pumping, broad-pump tolerance, wavelength selectivity, narrow linewidth, broad tunability, high beam quality, compactness, and efficiency into one attractive package. These characteristics make them an ideal candidate for use as more economic ...

  3. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface ...

  4. Mobile Atmospheric Turbulence-Refractivity Sensor

    SBC: G A Tyler Assoc. Inc. dba the Optical Sciences Co.            Topic: AF17AT008

    In this effort, tOSC and the University of New Mexico COSMIAC (Configurable Space Microsys- tems Innovation Applications Center) will combine to generate a Target-in-the-Loop (TIL) system concept that can simultaneously measure the strength of atmospheric turbulence and scintillation, as well as the refractivity occurring at the measurement time. For this system concept, we will leverage existing ...

  5. Broadband Low-Coherence Scatterometer

    SBC: Spectabit Optics LLC            Topic: AF17AT010

    The US Air Force has noted a need for a tool for broadband (300 nm2m) measurement of optical propagation properties such as absorption and scattering coefficients. A simple and inexpensive generic tool for extracting these properties from samples would be beneficial to many areas of both DoD and general scientific and industrial research. The present proposal seeks to develop a commercial instrume ...

  10. A Multiphysics Framework Utilizing Nonlinear Material Models for Predicting Impact of Structural Profile Disruption on High-Velocity Air Vehicles

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT025

    The aerothermal environment for hypersonic flight vehicles is severe and can generate extremely high material temperatures. These high-temperature environments can cause intense localized heating, which may result in local pockets and/or structural instabilities, especially at vehicle leading-edge regions, and may lead to disruptions that affect vehicle performance. The aerothermal environment may ...
