  1. Quantum-Entanglement Based QKD Security Guarantee Over QoS-Driven 3-D Satellite Networks

    SBC: G. A. Tyler Associates, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT15

    ABSTRACT: The proposed effort builds upon previous results obtained independently by the Optical Sciences Company and in collaboration with the DARPA InPho Program and other AFRL activities to develop a quantum communication system between ground links and a constellation of satellites. To address the losses in the link an advanced adaptive optics system is used to provide a robust classical cha ...

  2. Quantum-Entanglement Based QKD Security Guarantee Over QoS-Driven 3-D Satellite Networks

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF14AT15

    ABSTRACT: The secure transmission of digital information is of extreme importance for military and commercial applications. The need for protecting information from hostile eavesdroppers has motivated the search for novel security schemes. This EPR-based Quantum Key Distribution (QKD) approach promises to provide a final solution to the problem by insuring ultimate security based upon the laws o ...

  3. Low Loss, High Average Power PM WDMs for Raman Fiber Lasers

    SBC: POLARONYX, INC.            Topic: AF13AT03

    ABSTRACT: We propose a new fiber WDM fabrication method for single mode high power fiber laser. Our new approach will enable kW operation for both single mode fiber WDM and PCF WDM. At the end of Phase I, a proof of concept experiment will be demonstrated. In phase II, we will target at delivery of a reliable prototypes for both step index fiber WDM and PCF WDM. BENEFIT: The WDM is a key compon ...

  4. Highly Repetitive Power Modulators for Mobile Applications

    SBC: Transient Plasma Systems, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT07

    ABSTRACT: Recent experimental data from a number of DoD supported research programs have indicated that highly repetitive bursts of high peak power pulses are likely to enable or enhance important physical processes, such as combustion, boundary layer flow, and the generation of high power EM waves. Since many of these applications are mobile, the pulsed power source needs to be sufficiently com ...

  5. Precision high-frequency pressure measurements in ground and flight test

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF13AT15

    ABSTRACT: SA Photonics is pleased to propose the development of the Micro Interferometer Pressures Sensor (MIPS). MIPS uses an innovative sensing head structure being developed by our research partner, Virgina Tech. The pressure sensing head is then coupled to SA Photonics"high performance AccuSense photonic distance measurement system. AccuSense has demonstrated the capability of precision Fa ...

  7. High specific power and cost effective solar array for spacecraft, lighter than air vehicles, and UAVs

    SBC: VectorSum Inc            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Space solar power systems range in size from the International Space Station with 8 solar arrays producing 84,000 watts all the way down to body-mounted single wafers on individual cubesats. The current state-of-the-art relies on multi-junction gallium arsenide or inverted metamorphic cells affixed to rigid structural panels. The need for a low-mass, high energy output solar array for ...

  8. Development of light-weight, low-cost and high specific power organic solar modules with high radiation hardness

    SBC: SOLARMER ENERGY, INC.            Topic: AF13AT06

    ABSTRACT: Solar arrays play a key role in the operation of spacecrafts and unmanned aerial vehicles. Traditionally, inorganic semiconductor based solar arrays have been used for space applications because of their highest efficiencies. However, these solar arrays have several major limitations like extremely high cost, low specific power and large stowage volume. Organic photovoltaic (OPV) module ...
