  3. 10G Multi-Channel Tunable Transmitter Array for Avionic Applications

    SBC: Freedom Photonics LLC            Topic: N08T009

    Avionic platforms pose stringent requirements on the size, weight and power consumption of optical components as well as wider temperature operating range (-40 to 100°C) requirements. In order to meet these needs, monolithic integration offers a solution by enabling high speed (10G) multi-channel tunable transmitters that can be packaged in an extremely compact form factor, lowering costs, and pr ...

  5. 2K x 2K Dual Band Focal Plane Array Development for Advanced Interceptor IRSTS Applications

    SBC: Nova Research, Inc. DBA Nova Sensors            Topic: MDA08T002

    Nova Sensors proposes the development of a new 2K x 2K dual-band readout integrated circuit (ROIC) that will be specifically tailored for use in MDA Infrared Search and Track System (IRSTS) applications. We propose incorporation of on-FPA features that streamline the use of dual-band focal plane array (FPA) data for missile detection, tracking and spectral discrimination applications. In cooperat ...

  6. 3-D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: L J ENGINEERING TECHNOLOGY            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: The main issue with the development of a reliable constitutive model for explosive materials and concretes is the lack of a fundamental understanding of the evolution of 3-D microstructure and damage in these materials when they are subjected to multi-axial loading under confinement conditions. The main technical challenges are determining the 3-D microstructure and damage evolution pro ...

  7. 3D Acoustic Model for Geometrically Constrained Environments

    SBC: HEAT, LIGHT, AND SOUND RESEARCH, INC.            Topic: N16AT018

    Systems that operate in constrained environments depend on the acoustics in several ways. Harbor defense systems detect intruders (people and/or vessels) by either listening for their noises (passively) or by pinging on them and detecting their echoes (actively). Furthermore, such systems may also form the equivalent of an underwater cell phone network using sound to carry the information. The aco ...

  8. 3D Model Construction from a Micro Air Vehicle

    SBC: AEROVIRONMENT, INC.            Topic: ST051003

    The innovative integration of two emerging technologies, computer vision systems and Un-manned Aerial Vehicles (UAV's), can dramatically improve the capabilities of the UAV for real-world urban missions. Computer vision is being developed for robotic planetary exploration. UAV's are being developed for low-altitude military reconnaissance and surveillance in urban settings. The application of c ...

  9. 3D nondestructive imaging techniques for mesoscale damage analysis of composite materials

    SBC: Nextgen Aeronautics, Inc.            Topic: AF11BT04

    ABSTRACT: Energetic materials may be subjected to severe environments of pressure and shear loading, causing damage that leads to premature initiation or suboptimal performance. This damage is at the mesoscale, at and below the grain size of the particles, in the range of 5-400 microns. X-ray computed microtomography is a 3D non-destructive technique that can be used for imaging this damage. It e ...

  10. 3D Telestration for Robotically Assisted Surgery

    SBC: INTUITIVE SURGICAL            Topic: N/A

    DESCRIPTION (provided by applicant): The speed with which an innovative and improved surgical procedure can be widely adopted is governed principally by the availability of competent surgeon mentors. With its difficult learning curve, minimally invasive surgery has an especially strong need for mentors. Several investigators have developed "telestration," the ability for a remote surgeon mentor ...
