  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 ...

  4. 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 ...

  7. Inspiratory Impedance as a Treatment for Traumatic Brain Injury

    SBC: ADVANCED CIRCULATORY SYSTEMS, INC.            Topic: A06150

    Traumatic head and neck injuries account for 16-33% of all war-related injuries and are a leading cause of mortality upon evacuation to a definitive care setting. This application is focused on treating one of the most important determinants of outcome from severe head injury, the degree and duration of elevated intracranial pressure (ICP). The main objective of this proposal is to continue the ...

  8. 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 ...

  10. 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 ...
