  1. Closed Loop Composite Recycling Process

    SBC: Adherent Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF06081

    The recycling of composites on a large scale is an unsolved problem. Currently, the material is either ground up into near-worthless fillers, incinerated, or digested using environmentally questionable technology. Adherent Technologies, Inc. has developed a number of technologies to reclaim valuable carbon fiber and other raw materials from these composites in a potentially economically feasible ...

  2. High-Resolution Wide-Dynamic-Range MEMS-Based Closed-Loop Adaptive Optics System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF05003

    AgilOptics’ Phase I SBIR proposed the development of a moire¢ Wave-Front Sensor (MWFS) test-bed to evaluate the MWFS design developed and patented by the University of New Mexico (UNM) and to extend the design for use in a closed-loop Adaptive Optic (AO) system with a Micro-Electro-Mechanical System (MEMS) Deformable Mirror (DM) corrector. Our Phase I results have shown that the MWFS provides i ...

  3. MEMS-Based Aero-optics Simulator System

    SBC: AGILOPTICS            Topic: AF06T030

    This effort joins the MEMS-based deformable mirror technology available from AgilOptics, a New Mexico small business, with the aero-optics technology of the University of Notre Dame to develop an Aero-optics Simulator. This simulator will develop a library of aero-optics patterns to simulate atmospheric distortions for test and evaluation of military or commercial beam control systems.

  5. Compact HPM Sources

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: OSD05D07

    The MATRIX oscillator was developed as a tunable wideband HPM source for use by the AFRL in threat testing. The fundamental physics of hydrogen insulation used in the MATRIX oscillator as well as the overall topology limit the voltage-frequency-Q (VFQ) product of the current system. Through the application of dual-resonant topology and revised insulation, the output of the MATRIX oscillator conc ...

  6. Real-time Passive Three-Dimensional (3-D) Imaging and Ranging


    Comprehensive solutions for extracting 3-D imagery and absolute range from visible and/or infrared (IR) images collected from small UAVs, micro-UAVs, or situational awareness sensors are proposed. These techniques can be used for 3D structure reconstruction, scene interpretation and 3D visualization of areas of interest. Challenges such as perspective changes between image platform and scene, unce ...

  8. Radio Frequency Effects on Electronics Algorithm

    SBC: DUSHAN MITROVICH            Topic: AF06004

    This program will research the physics of electromagnetic interactions that Ultra-Wide Band (UWB) signals can induce on cables and printed circuit boards in complex electronic systems. It will find efficient algorithms for computing these interactions and simulating system behavior in time domain. The connecting backbones of multi-component systems are multi-component transmission lines (MTL). ...

  9. Folded Horn Antennas

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05D10

    Antennas for radiating high-power mesoband electromagnetic signals are critical to the mission of upsetting electronics at a distance. High Power Microwave (HPM) weapons require highly efficient antennas that can fit into a small volume. An example of such an antenna is the half Impulse Radiating Antenna (IRA) driven by a switched oscillator source in the MATRIX system. However, the half IRA has a ...

  10. Microwave Pulse Compressors

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: OSD05D07

    High-Power Microwave fields between 500 MHz and 1 GHz can upset electronic equipment at a considerable distance. However, it remains challenging to find a suitable high-power microwave source for such fields. Such devices should have a bandwidth of 10-15%, reasonable efficiency, low cost, compact size, and peak power of about 1 GW. Existing sources, such as magnetrons, are both massive and expensi ...
