  1. Layered, 3-D RF/Optoelectronic Microstructures with Precision Kinematic Mount

    SBC: Avanti Optics Corp.            Topic: N/A

    "We propose to investigate the feasibility of using Avanti's self-aligning kinematic optoelectronic mounts for active 3-D RF/optoelectronic microstructures. We believe the unique benefit of our approach is the precision alignment of optoelectronic devicesfor coupling to the outside world (and layer-to-layer). This unique benefit is coupled with additional benefits of easy manufacturability, direct ...

  2. Speech Interface Architecture For Human To Agent Interactions

    SBC: CHI Systems, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    "The use of agents as synthetic entities is a key technology in the development of next generation simulation based training and performance support systems. In these systems agents must collaborate with humans, communicating through speech. Unlike manyexisting speech technology applications which require only simple sequential dialogs, military domains frequently involve time critical communica ...

  3. Mitigation of Aero-Optic Distortions by Active Flow Control


    "Laser beam interactions with free shear turbulent structures in the context of a recessed cavity window will be investigated. The proposed program will investigate the aero-optic degradation of a laser beam, housed within the cavity, and its remediationusing high frequency flow control. Beam wander and displacement statistics, obtained via a Position Sensitive Detector (PSD), will be complemented ...

  5. New Nd2Fe14B-based High Performance Permanent Magnets with Improved Toughness for Propulsion

    SBC: Electron Energy Corporation            Topic: N/A

    "High-performance sintered rare earth magnets are based on intermetallic compounds of SmCo5, Sm2Co17, or Nd2Fe14B. Each of these compounds is intrinsically brittle and can only be shaped by grinding, lapping, and electro-discharge machining (EDM). Evengrinding and lapping these magnets to the required dimensions often results in chipping, cracking, or fracture, leading to production losses rangi ...

  6. Outfitting Attachment Systems for Composite Sandwich Structure (MSC P1B16-211)

    SBC: Materials Sciences LLC            Topic: N/A

    "Sandwich panels will be used extensively in topside structure for future Navy ships. One missing piece of technology needed for this application is a robust, easy-to-install method for attaching the myriad of outfitting items required in a ship. The MSCapproach to solving this problem is to design an insert that can transfer pull-out loads directly to the core material. Loading the core removes ...

  8. Low Pressure Source for Mass-Selective, Diffusion Assisted Epitaxy


    Dramatic differences in the diffusivities of the constituents of novel thin film materials and structures limit material perfection under far from equilibrium growth conditions. We will develop a new light-mass ion source, compatible with the low pressurerequirements of molecular beam epitaxy (MBE), to provide selective enhancement of the motion of surface atoms. Helium or hydrogen ions incident ...

  9. Large Area Si Substrates for InP Based Electronics and Optical Device Manufacturing


    InP-based devices have applications encompassing the entire communication technology including wireless and fiber-optic telecommunications. It is especially suitable for very high frequency (up to 200GHz) operation. Therefore they are increasingly acritical component in all military missions. Their manufacturing costs are high in large part due the high cost of InP substrates, and their much small ...
