  2. Tin Whisker Mitigation Technologies for Sn-based Surface Finishes on Electronic Assemblies and Microelectronic Devices

    SBC: Foresite, Inc.            Topic: MDA08T010

    The impact of metal whiskers on the reliability of electronics has been exacerbated by environmentally-driven efforts to eliminate lead from tin plating and solders. Even exempt applications, such as military, are affected due to COTS. Foresite, Inc., a consultant, laboratory and test equipment development company, has a goal for the subject research, in collaboration with Purdue University, to ...

  3. 1 kW Fiber Lasers and Alignment Free SBC

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: MDA04005

    Spectral Beam Combination (SBC) has been proven as a scalable beam combining approach for high power fiber lasers. Demonstrations at Aculight have shown 522 Watts of near diffraction limited power from three combined fiber laser sources; and the dispersive element, a Multi-Layer-Dielectric (MLD) diffraction grating, will operate well above 1.5 kWatts/cm2 of incident power allowing ~100 kWatt sour ...

  5. Mid-IR Semiconductor Lasers for IRCM

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: AF03011

    Optically pumped, high power, mid-Infrared semiconductor lasers that operate at cryogenic temperature must be engineered to operate over large ambient temperature and harsh vibration environments to be able to be used in future IRCM systems. The proposed work will demonstrate novel methods of laser packaging that enable operation of a low cost, mid-infrared, semiconductor laser in military tempe ...

  6. A Noninvasive Sensor/Control Suite for Health Monitoring and Extended Life of Aircraft Generation Systems

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N06T007

    Catastrophic failures in aircraft electrical power systems can compromise the readiness, safety, and capabilities of the war-fighter. In this effort, a multi-physics suite of tools will be developed based upon the successful Phase I research to provide a comprehensive prognostics and health management system (PHM) for aircraft generators and associated electrical systems. The PHM will be based upo ...

  7. 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 ...
