  1. Optimization of Sodium Guide Star Return using Polarization and/or Modulation Control

    SBC: ROCHESTER SCIENTIFIC, LLC            Topic: AF19AT008

    Laser guide stars (LGS) are artificial sources of light produced by laser-induced fluorescence from sodium atoms in the mesosphere between 85 km and 100 km altitude. The fluorescence can be detected on the ground with a telescope and used as a reference for compensating atmospheric aberrations in astronomical and space observations in conjunction with an adaptive optics system. Sodium LGS are vita ...

  2. High Electron Mobility GaN for THz-Band Multipliers

    SBC: TOYON RESEARCH CORPORATION            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Toyon is proposing to develop multiplier diode technology with record power handling in the 200 – 400 GHz output frequency range using Gallium Nitride (GaN) materials. This technology is needed to effectively utilize the high pump power now available from mmWave GaN power amplifiers. GaN has inherent material property advantages including high electric field strength, electron velocity, and ther ...

  3. Reconfigurable/Cognitive Optical Communications

    SBC: Vulcan Wireless, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    As the number of optical communication terminals proliferate there will be a need to have these terminals interoperate.  In the past, optical terminals were designed with a single purpose in mind.  New space constellations are requiring non-RF crosslink solutions.  It is expected that there will be a large number of both commercial and military systems providing crosslinks and space to earth li ...

  7. Using explainable AI (XAI) and related technologies to reduce physician burnout and improve medical surge capacity.

    SBC: DIGITAS, LLC            Topic: AF20ATCSO1

    Physicians are highly burned out (up to 80% of physicians) and the COVID-19 pandemic is making this problem much worse; Department of Defense doctors are at higher risk (caring for more patients per capita).  Burnout may manifest itself as sustained stress; but also leads to severe effects such as physician suicides, physician drug abuse, and increased patient medical errors.  Electronic health ...
