  1. N/A

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    This subtopic solicited Phase I R&D for an advanced Fourier transform infrared (FT-IR) system that would provide fast-scanning high resolution (3 scans/sec at 1cm-1 resolution), low noise, mid-infrared measurements for characterization of spray flames. In Phase I, Advanced Fuel Research, Inc. (AFR) demonstrated FT-IR emission/transmission (E/T) measurements from the NIST spray combustion faci ...

  2. Control Sensor for Turbine Engine Augmentor Rumble and Screech

    SBC: Advanced Fuel Research, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    During aircraft turbine engine operation, augmentor (afterburner) operation is often associated with combustion instabilities (oscillations) that can be potentially detrimental to the turbine engine if the resonant amplitude levels are excessive.Oscillation in the frequency range of 50-100 Hz is commonly called

  3. 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 ...

  4. Tuneable Low Frequency Microwave Source

    SBC: ASR Corporation            Topic: AF05006

    The proposed effort is to develop a frequency and waveshape agile pulse forming system. The pulse forming system is based on a Blumlein topology and allows a wide range of waveforms to be generated from a fixed set of mechanical hardware.

  5. Shock Mitigating Technology

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    The advancement of shock mitigation technology is critical to the protection of fuzes in future penetrating weapons that are smaller and faster than current weapons. The first objective of this project during Phase II is to continue the research anddevelopment of three shock mitigation approaches, and apply them to develop a mount or housing that protects the most susceptible component of a fuze, ...

  6. Automatic Time Domain Antenna Range

    SBC: FARR RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N/A

    For companies engaged in the development of new antenna designs, antenna measurement systems represent a huge initial cost, and a significant barrier to entry into the market. Antenna measurement systems typically use a frequency domain Vector NetworkAnalyzer (VNA) and anechoic chamber or large outdoor range. The cost of such systems starts at around $300,000, which is more than most small compani ...

  7. Advanced Rain and Dust Erosion Resistant Coating Systems

    SBC: HONTEK CORP.            Topic: N/A

    Rain and dust erosions on aircraft forward facing surfaces such as leading edges, engine inlets, nose radomes, propeller blades, and antennas are serious problems. Due to increasing optical missile threats more low gloss rain erosion coatings are beingused. Current commercial lusterless gray rain erosion coating failed the rain test within 36 minutes when tested at 500mph under 1

  8. Manufacturing Engineering Development and Weaponization of Bonded Components For Lethal Air-to-Air Warheads

    SBC: HYTEC, INC.            Topic: AF05170

    For a variety of warhead concepts, both for air-to-air applications and ground-based, it is desirable to explore new material combinations that provide enhanced lethality and functionality. For example, it may be desirable to combine materials that have high density with those having pyrophoric or other properties. In such advanced air-based weapons systems such as PIOS (Programmable Integrated ...

  9. Distorted Grating Wavefront Sensor

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: N/A

    Under this Phase II SBIR effort Kestrel Corporation proposes to demonstrate the advantages of a distorted grating based wavefront sensor for measuring wavefront aberrations under propagation conditions that simulate the high levels of aberrations found inan Airborne Laser (ABL) application. The proposed technique was conceptually demonstrated during Phase I laboratory experiments where the sensor ...

  10. Ultra High Speed Aero Optics Compensation

    SBC: Kestrel Corporation            Topic: AF05010

    Aberrations due to aero optics effects around a turret in flight cause degradation of any optical beam traversing the turret. The degradation causes reduction in system performance of directed energy weapons in terms of the lethality range and increased dwell time as the energy on target is reduced. Kestrel Corporation has developed a new wavefront sensors based on measuring the curvature of the ...
