  1. Fiber laser for advanced guidance research

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF05159

    Three-dimensional laser radar (LADAR) systems have proven to be effective tools for real time 3D image generation enabling autonomous target detection and recognition. They have demonstrated high probability of detection and identification of unobstructed targets; however, the challenges of extracting sufficient target information out of background clutter can limit the usefulness of these system ...

  3. High Energy Laser (HEL) Beam Combination

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: OSD05D04

    Aculight proposes a new spectral beam combining (SBC) system to utilize higher power, broader linewidth, fiber lasers to meet the demanding requirements of high energy laser (HEL) applications. The system is scalable to up to 100 kW output with diffraction limited beam quality by spectrally combining a number of high power fiber lasers operating at slightly different wavelengths. The proposed ap ...

  5. Flow-Field Seeding Techniques for Large Transonic Wind Tunnels

    SBC: Aero Systems Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF06297

    Optical measurements including laser velocimetry (LV), particle image velocimetry (PIV), and other similar techniques are becoming a more important part of aerodynamic testing. However their implementation into large production wind tunnels is severely hindered by difficulties with flow seeding. Phase I of this program will focus on the problem of seed delivery and dispersal into a transonic strea ...

  6. Commercially Rad-hard Advanced Digital Library (CRADL).

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF05018

    The Air Force Research Laboratory (AFRL), U.S. Air Force and agencies like the National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) have a current and future need for advanced commercially available inherently rad-hard primitive cell libraries to support new designs for satellites and other spacecraft. American Semiconductor Inc. proposes a new core cell library that can meet next generation high ...

  7. Wax Substitutes for Melt Castable Explosive Fills.

    SBC: Applied Colloids            Topic: AF06151

    The use of carnauba wax in melt/castable explosives yields a insensitive explosive formulation that enhances overall safety for the use of these munitions in the field. However, carnauba wax is only obtained from overseas sources and there is no domestic source for this material. This leads to shortages of material and higher prices. There exists a need for a wax substitute to replace the carna ...

  8. End-to-End QoS IP Techniques for Heterogeneous Networks (EQuIP)

    SBC: ARCHITECTURE TECHNOLOGY CORPORATION            Topic: AF05087

    Heterogeneous networks are being utilized to provide the communication infrastructure needed to transport multimedia traffic and mission critical traffic. Currently, there does not exist a complete solution that enables the efficient utilization of heterogeneous environments in order to provide end-to-end security and QoS provisioning to multimedia flows and mission critical data. During Phase I, ...

  9. High-Speed Headstock with B-Axis for Machining Aircraft Structures

    SBC: Beck Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF05127

    The Air Force needs a compact high-speed high-power spindle to rapidly manufacture complex geometries in aluminum and titanium aircraft structures. We propose to continue developing a compact high-speed high-power spindle to meet Air Force requirements. In Phase I, we designed a pre-prototype spindle and calculated the operating characteristics of the spindle. Our design indicates our spindle i ...

  10. Robust Complex Systems

    SBC: COMMERCIAL COMPUTER SYSTEMS LLC            Topic: OSD05SP6

    This proposal applies proven techniques to software-intensive system designs that yield measurable, tangible and repeatable results consistent with the other branches of engineering. Simply put, we propose to: (a) Express the first order architectural aspects of a software-intensive system in simple sets of blueprints. (b) Convert the blueprints from (a) into a formal architectural specification l ...
