  1. Micromachined Fused Silica Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: TRANSLUME, INC.            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: We propose to fabricate a high performance signal and pump combiner for high-power fiber lasers and fiber amplifiers. We will use advanced glass micromachining processes that will alleviate the fabrication challenges associated with either tapered fused fiber couplers or side-pumped fused coupler. A central robust fused silica structure will be micromachined. The pumps and signal fib ...

  2. Robust, Lightweight Wiring for Space Applications

    SBC: MINNESOTA WIRE & CABLE COMPANY            Topic: AF112093

    ABSTRACT: An ability to reduce the weight of cables has the potential to provide significant cost savings, reduce maintenance and improve reliability of satellites. The costs of developing and producing satellites are linearly proportional with the satellite"s weight, with each kilogram costing around $1 million when delivery-to-space costs are included. With global satellite launches expected to ...

  3. Enabling Flexible Materials, Devices and Processes for Defense

    SBC: American Semiconductor, Inc.            Topic: AF121003

    ABSTRACT:Emergence and feasibility for flexible body-worn electronics and particularly medical patches requires high performance electronics capability.The problem is that these new technologies must have flexible and conformal physical formats and conventional electronic components are not in any way flexible. In the CLAS Phase I program, a new flexible high-performance manufacturing and material ...

  4. Efficient Computational Tool for RF-Induced Thermal Response

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF121032

    ABSTRACT: The ThermoReg thermal model was developed to solve for tissue temperatures resulting from radio frequency (RF) heating using a voxel-based, heterogeneous tissue description of the human body. Although ThermoReg has been parallelized to run on high-performance computer clusters, the time-dependent nature of a thermal solution (especially for tissue temperatures resulting from high-power, ...

  6. Attack Amelioration via Layered Temporal Virtualizaton ("Primer")

    SBC: Computer Measurement Laboratory, LLC            Topic: AF141038

    ABSTRACT: This project will investigate the feasibility of a computing appliance which uses Temporal Virtualization to help ameliorate the effects of malicious software activity. Temporal Virtualization involves the manipulation of virtual time in Type-2 (software) virtual clients in a way that frustrates an adversary"s attempts to corrupt or break out of virtualization. An attack model is assume ...

  7. Differential Characterization of Atmospheric Turbulence System (DCATS)

    SBC: Michigan Aerospace Corporation            Topic: AF141195

    ABSTRACT: Michigan Aerospace Corporation (MAC) and Georgia Tech Research Institute (GTRI) propose to design an airborne system for characterizing long range profiles of the state of optical turbulence in the atmosphere. This system will exploit GTRI"s differential image motion (DIM) lidar for measuring profiles of the refractive index structure characteristic as well as scintillation analysis to ...

  8. Mitigating Sensor Saturation through Image Processing Techniques

    SBC: Thermoanalytics, Inc.            Topic: AF131121

    ABSTRACT:The objective of this SBIR research effort is to investigate algorithms for mitigation of sensor saturation, including the effects of laser dazzlers,in mid-wave infrared (MWIR) cameras using advanced image-processing techniques.The optical irradiance present in dazzled imagery spans several orders of magnitude more than conventional MWIR focal planes can reproduce. The large variation in ...

  9. Near Real-Time Processing Techniques for Generation of Integrated Data Products

    SBC: Digital Imagery Innovations, LLC            Topic: AF141177

    ABSTRACT: Targeting pods for tactical aircraft are adding more sensors with more capabilities in response to more stressing mission requirements. In turn these sensors, such as multi-spectral imagers and 3D LADAR are producing more complex data, more rapidly. In addition, it is now possible to store and access a wide variety of pre-existing data on-board for reference and correlation with the r ...

  10. STTR Phase I: An Assistive Tool to Locate People and Objects with a Multimodal Thermogram Interface

    SBC: MOAI TECHNOLOGIES, LLC            Topic: EI

    This Small Business Technology Transfer Research (STTR) Phase I project will leverage past National Science Foundation Funded research to prove that a blind/low vision user can receive practical navigation and interaction information about their environment from a multimodal thermogram (thermal image) interface on a smartphone. There are no practical assistive technologies for blind or low vision ...
