  1. Multiple-View Genlocked Camera

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Freestyle Technology, Inc. proses to design an build a six-camera video imaging device for use in navigation research. The individual cameras will be attached to two-meter tethers to allow for flexible placement on a variety of platforms. All cameraswill be genlocked to a common signal to assure that corresponding pixels in each camera are sampled at the same time. A user interface will be prov ...

  2. Munition Deployed Microprobes

    SBC: FREESTYLE TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Freestyle Technologies, Inc. proposes to perform exploratory research in the area of munition-deployed microprobes. The baseline microprobe will consist of simple acoustic and sesmic sensors and will be deployed by an autonomous munition at locations ofinterest. Once deployed, the microprobes will form an ad hoc wireless network and passively monitor for targets. The microprobes will signal the ...

  3. Computational Modeling of Laser Additive Manufacturing Processes

    SBC: INNOVATIVE RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The overall goal of the proposed research is to develop a comprehensive, efficient, and well-validated model for the prediction of the shape and thermal history of components manufactured using Laser Additive Manufacturing (LAM) processes. The proposedmodel will use a combined Eulerian-Lagrangian treatment for analyzing the interactions between the gas and particle phases, and the laser beam. The ...

  4. High Heat Flux Laser Diode and/or Solid State Laser Cooling for Airborne and/or Spaceborne Directed Energy Applications

    SBC: MICROVECTION, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Diode laser present one of the most challenging thermal problems in industry. The small footprint and very high power levels combine to create extremely high heat fluxes in the vicinity of the diode. Tese heat flux levels raise the diode temperature,leading to lower lasing efficiency, wavelength shifts, and reduced diode lifetime. The cooling problem becomes even more difficult when combined wi ...

  6. Interweapon Wireless Communication

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A novel method of intraweapon wireless communications using magnetic field transmissions was demonstrated during the Phase I portion of this program. Normal physical wire communication links cannot be expected to survive during and after targetpenetration. Therefore, various methods of wireless communication within a metal cylinder 15 inches in diameter and 10 feet in length were evaluated and c ...

  7. BMDO TOPIC-- Magneto-Thermal MRAM

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Magneto-Thermal MRAM uses both heat and magnetic field (current) to overcome thermal instabilites of very small memory cells. Self-generated heat in the cell raises the temperature of magnetic material in the cell above the exchange ordering temperature ofthe magnetic material (either ferromagnetic or anti-ferromagnetic). Magneto-Thermal MRAM is compatible with advances in photolithography down to ...

  8. Ultra-Low-Cost Magnetic Sensors for Submarine Detection

    SBC: NVE CORP. (FORMERLY NONVOLATILE ELECTRONICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    This work seeks to develop ultra-low-cost antisubmarine surveillance devices based on NVE Corporation's mass-producible solid-state magnetic sensor technology. The sensors will be used in shallow littoral waters to protect against surprise attack by enemysubmarines. NVE's spin-dependent tunneling sensors are fabricated using thin-film processing techniques that are compatible with semiconductor ...

  10. Improved target recognition using polarimetric ladar

    SBC: PHYSICS INNOVATIONS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Flash laser radar (ladar) systems have been developed for automatic target identification in military surveillance systems. Ideally, the system is able to distinguish pixels containing the target from pixels containing background. A signal processor thenuses the range value at target pixels to estimate the target's 3-D shape (angle-angle-range) and, from the 3-D shape, identify the target. Howe ...
