  2. 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 ...

  3. 2-Dimensional Phase Controlled Coherent VCSEL Arrays for Military Applications

    SBC: Aerius Photonics, LLC.            Topic: N11AT024

    Aerius Photonics and the University of Illinois propose to develop a large two-dimensional coherently coupled Vertical Cavity Surface Emitting Laser (VCSEL) array that will enable phase controlled operation, providing a building block for electronic steering of optical beam outputs with no mechanical parts. In Phase I, the program team will design the array including epitaxial layers, VCSEL array ...

  4. 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 ...

  5. A Fiber-Optic-Based External Pipe Sound Pressure Level Sensing System

    SBC: Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation            Topic: N10AT016

    Intelligent Fiber Optic Systems Corporation (IFOS) and Georgia Tech propose a fiber Bragg grating (FBG) integrated sensor system capable of measuring the pipe wall "breathing mode" in order to infer the fluid-borne sound pressure level (SPL) in a pipe. The proposed new measurement technique makes it possible to externally measure the fluid-borne sound level in a noisy piping system. The state-of-a ...

  6. A Multiscale Modeling and Simulation Framework for Predicting After-Burning Effects from Non-Ideal Explosives

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N10AT002

    The primary objective of the proposed effort is to develop a validated computational tool to predict the afterburning of non-ideal munitions containing metal and hydrocarbon fuels. The activities outlined devise a well-coordinated collaboration among researchers from Reaction Engineering International (REI) and the State University of New York at Buffalo (UB). The activities proposed will build on ...

  7. A Novel Single Sideband Suppressed-Carrier (SSB-SC) Technique for High Dynamic Range Analog Applications

    SBC: IPITEK, Inc.            Topic: N05T008

    A novel technique for achieving SSB-SC is proposed for achieving high dynamic range in analog applications. The technique employs an intracavity modulator together with an intracavity filter that blocks the modulation sidebands from being re-circulated. Spurious-free dynamic ranges (SFDR) exceeding 120 dB/Hz2/3 is achieved using this novel technique. Development of a prototype photonics circuit ...

  8. A Portable, Modular Process for Sulfur Removal and Disposal in Naval Fuel Cell System

    SBC: Cal Nova Tech, Inc.            Topic: N/A

    The petroleum refining industry tends to utilize large sulfur removal units, which are permanently installed and unable to meet the demands of a versatile industry. Cal Nova Tech has developed a sulfur-removal concept that utilizes portable, modularcomponents that can be quickly assembled in a variety of ways. These units are especially effective in confined areas, such as those found onboard Na ...

  9. A Pressure-Dependent Detailed Chemical Kinetic Model for JP-10 Combustion

    SBC: Reaction Engineering International            Topic: N09T011

    Investigations into JP-10 combustion chemistry thus far can be characterized as preliminary. The few detailed chemical kinetic mechanisms that have been published are limited in their ability to reproduce experimental data. The combustion chemistry of JP-10 is highly complex and involves hundreds if not thousands of species and thousands of chemical reactions. A detailed kinetic model capable of ...

  10. A Thin Layer Approach to Highly Mobile Ad Hoc Networks

    SBC: UTOPIACOMPRESSION,CORPORATION            Topic: N08T032

    Today’s warfare is network centric and relies on efficient communications on the move. To support these requirements, wireless mobile ad hoc networks (MANET) have received a lot of attention because of self deployment and reconfiguration properties. Unfortunately, wireless networks in mobile environments face formidable challenges – from radio propagation effects to external jamming, path bre ...
