  2. Cost Effective, Scalable, High Power, Mid-IR Optically (Laser) Pumped Molecular Laser Source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    The Air Force and other branches of the armed forces require compact and cost-effective, high power (10s of Watts) sources of mid-infrared radiation at wavelengths within atmospheric transmission bands. Thermal issues in solid-state lasers have so farlimited the performance of these devices at long wavelengths. By contrast gas lasers can provide power scalability, however these devices are typica ...

  3. Tether Propulsion System for XS-11 Satellite Retrieval Mission

    SBC: TETHERS UNLIMITED, INC.            Topic: N/A

    A small propellantless electrodynamic tether system can provide a low-mass and low-cost means for lowering the orbit of an existing satellite from high- or mid-LEO altitudes down to low-LEO altitudes so that the satellite can be retrieved for examination,repair, or return to Earth. We propose to develop prototype hardware for an electrodynamic tether drag system to enable a

  4. High Accuracy, Automated Satellite Surveillance Network

    SBC: Oceanit Laboratories, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    Oceanit has successfully shown in Phase I that highly accurate (sub-arcsecond) observations are obtainable utilizing a relatively low-cost COTS system. These highly accurate angular observations can be introduced into the orbit determination process as asupplement to high-quality range data. These improved angular observations help resolve the geometric ambiguity of range-only orbit determinatio ...

  5. High Temperature Catalyst for Nontoxic Monopropellants

    SBC: SIENNA TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: N/A

    The Phase I work demonstrated that a family of ceramic oxides and oxynitrides can be used either as high temperature catalyst carriers or catalysts for decomposition of HAN fuels. A ceramic processing technique to produce high surface area catalystgranules was also demonstrated. However, no performance and process optimizations were performed. The work initiated in Phase I will be continued to ...

  6. Development of Specific Pathogen Free (SPF) Penaeus monodon Broodstock for High Health and High Performance

    SBC: High Health Aquaculture, Inc. (HHA)            Topic: N/A

    Shrimp farming is the world's most valuable aquaculture sector with 1994 production of 733,000 MT and crop value of $4 billion. This huge industry depends on wild animals with its seedstock either gathered directly from the sea or produced in hatcheries from wild-caught broodstock. Recently the industry has experienced severe disease problems which in part are due to its reliance on wild animals ...

  7. An Ultrathin Foil Neutral Density Filter Set for the Infrared

    SBC: Luxel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    A solution to the need for OD 3 to OD 10 neutral density filters in the infrared (2 to 25 um) with flat wavelength dependence is suggested using submicron thickness polymer films as substrates for multi-layer or co-deposited metallic alloy coatings. Initial studies used Lexan and although they showed feasibility, a stronger and more temperature resistant ultrathin substrate such as polyimide film ...

  8. Ultrahigh-Pressure Cryogenic Jet Cutting of Steel

    SBC: Waterjet Technology Inc            Topic: N/A

    This project will advance the state of the art of ultrahigh-pressure (UHP) jet machining technology. Existing technology uses water as the working fluid that accelerates abrasive particles in high-velocity, highly coherent jets. Despite successful demonstration and industrial utilization of the technology in cutting, cleaning, drilling, turning, milling, and surface-preparation operations, it re ...

  9. Tunable Laser Radar Source

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Aculight proposes the development of a frequency tunable source suitable for LADAR measurements from compact military platforms. The source will use a fixed frequency diode pumped solid state drive laser and an optical parametric oscillator, tunable from 1.6 to 2.4 microns. Output energies will be over 100 micro-J through the spectral range at pulse rates of 10kHz. The major technical challenge, ...

  10. 1-3 Micron Tunable Diode Pumped Solid State Laser Sources

    SBC: Aculight Corporation            Topic: N/A

    High pulse energy, high repetition rate, tunable, narrowband sources are needed for optical pumping of mid-infrared gas laser converters. The source needs continuous tunability over the 1-3 micron band to access different overtone bands in various gaseous gain media. Due to the need for diode pumping of the source, efficiency is critical to minimizing diode costs. Our approach is efficient gene ...
