  1. Direct Metal Adsorption Printing (DMAP)

    SBC: Digibeam Corporation            Topic: AF161010

    3D printing has recently taking a lead role as a potential solution for future manufacturing. However, there are still many problems and limitations to the technology for cost effective high resolution, high throughput manufacturing.Derived from the SBIR Phase I effort, Digibeam is presenting an innovative solution using a different beam and growth process that directly addresses both resolution a ...

  2. Flexible Sensor Network and Its Embedded Integrated Circuits for Structural Health Monitoring

    SBC: ACELLENT TECHNOLOGIES, INC            Topic: AF16AT03

    Structural Health Monitoring (SHM) can be reliably used to perform on-line health monitoring of any type of structures with minimal human involvement. Current SHM systems can perform the functions required but are heavy, bulky and difficult to integrate with the structure to provide on-board real-time structural integrity assessment. Embedding of currently available sensors and electronics used by ...

  3. Three-Dimensional Density Imaging by Rayleigh Scattering

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF16AT06

    A diagnostic is proposed for obtaining instantaneous three-dimensional volumetric distributions of density in a flow field at velocities ranging from subsonic to supersonic. Multiple Sheet Filtered Rayleigh Scattering (MSFRS) will be developed, which enables a series of two-dimensional images to be rapidly obtained making up a volumetric image while suppressing background scattering from wind tunn ...

  4. Low-Defect GeSn and SiGeSn for Integrated High-Performance SWIR and MWIR Optoelectronics

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF16AT28

    Advanced imaging techniques and, novel intelligence, surveillance and reconnaissance (ISR) methods are of great interest to the U.S. Air Force and other Department of Defense (DoD) agencies, but associated high-costs of III-V and II-VI MWIR and SWIR materials prohibit their practical widespread deployment and integration with other optoelectronic devices. In this program, we intend to investigate ...

  5. Blended Reality Solution for Live, Virtual, and Constructive Field Training

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF17AT011

    A Battlefield Airman (BA) has one of the most challenging positions in the military. BA personnel are tasked with the dual roles of being warfighters as well as Combat Controllers, Pararescuemen, Tactical Air Control Party (TACP) members and Special Operations Weather Technicians often while behind enemy lines. These complex duties require high fidelity training. In some cases, such as Pararescuem ...

  7. Near-Surface Residual Stress Measurements for Aerospace Structures

    SBC: HILL ENGINEERING, LLC            Topic: AF121112

    It is widely recognized that near surface residual stresses play a significant role in fatigue performance. Tensile residual stresses are of concern because they accelerate fatigue crack initiation and fatigue crack growth relative to what would occur in the absence of residual stress. Compressive residual stresses, on the other hand, have the opposite effect and can be used to improve fatigue per ...

  8. Multi-aperture Sensors for High Speed Weapon Applications

    SBC: Spectral Imaging Laboratory            Topic: AF131099

    The U.S. Air Force has a need to develop a new forward looking infrared imaging system that can actively mitigate thermal loading associated with munitions flight speeds greater than Mach 5.Excessive thermal loading causes the viewing domes to emit a high background radiance, which saturates the sensor and reduces the signal-to-noise ratio (SNR) below the level required for reliable targeting, gui ...

  9. High Performance, High Yield RF Photonic Integration Platform

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: AF151005

    In this work, Freedom Photonics is proposing to develop a hybrid integration platform that integrates yielded, best-of-breed active optical components on a low-loss passive waveguide interposer to form high performance, phase stable integrated photonic systems. This development will leverage off ongoing Freedom Photonics high-performance component and photonic integration technology. The advantage ...

  10. Measurement of Neutral Xenon Using Two Photon Radar REMPI and Laser Induced Fluorescence

    SBC: Metrolaser, Inc.            Topic: AF161006

    Two complementary diagnostic techniques, Two-photon Absorption Laser-Induced Fluorescence (TALIF) and Radar Resonance Enhanced Multi-Photon Ionization (Radar REMPI), are proposed for measuring concentrations of neutral xenon in Hall thruster research. TALIF excels in a highly ionized environment, and Radar REMPI excels in a highly luminous environment. Both methods have the potential to provide no ...
