  1. 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.

  3. Adaptive Liquid Crystalline Elastomer Nanocomposites with a Unique Morphology

    SBC: NEI CORPORATION            Topic: AF06T017

    As part of the trend over the years of polymers replacing metals, substituting metallic wing skins with shape memory polymers (SMPs) that have excellent mechanical properties provides an opportunity to develop a new kind of morphing aircraft that can fulfil the needs of future military missions. Additionally, SMPs that can exert large recovery and regenerative stresses are needed for a broad range ...

  4. Targets for RADAR Calibration and Test of Advanced Discrimination Technologies and Concepts

    SBC: Qynergy Corporation            Topic: MDA05T005

    Qynergy Corporation proposes to develop a unique power system for space targets for RADAR calibration and test of advanced discrimination technologies and concepts. There is a need for well-characterized cooperative space targets that can decrease reliance on expensive BMDS integrated flight tests. The space target system would consist of at least 2 objects: a cone of approximately 1-m diameter, ...

  5. Diode Laser-Based Flight Test Instrumentation for Scramjets

    SBC: Southwest Sciences, Inc.            Topic: AF04T012

    This Phase II STTR project will continue the research and development of a simultaneous multi-species sensor system for scramjets flight test instrumentation. The sensor system is based on modulation-frequency multiplexing to combine several laser wavelengths and using a single two-color photodiode detector to collect the laser signals along the same optical path. High-sensitivity detection of c ...

  9. Advanced Hearing Protection

    SBC: DOMINCA LLC            Topic: N/A

    Some ground crews for aircrafts are exposed to ambient noise levels up to 150 dB SPL: at these levels, conduction of sound through tissues is significant and may be responsible for hearing loss. Protecting the ear canal with earplugs and earmuffs cannotprevent damage caused by tissue-conducted sound. Our research partners at University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign, experts in bioacoustics and ...

  10. YCOB-a new nonlinear optical crystal for high average power, efficient, visible wavelength, solid-state laser sources.

    SBC: LASER ENERGETICS, INC.            Topic: N/A

    Laser Energetics Inc. will exploit the recent development of a new nonlinear optical crystal, YCa4O(BO3)3 (YCOB), to provide high average power visible laser radiation by harmonic conversion. This crystal has a number of advantages over other commonlyavailable nonlinear optical crystals. It has a higher or equal magnitude of nonlinear coefficient than crystals such as KDP, LBO, or BBO and yet it i ...
