  1. X-ray Cinematography for Explosive Events

    SBC: DIVERSIFIED TECHNOLOGIES, INC.            Topic: AF18BT014

    Diversified Technologies, Inc. (DTI) proposes to develop a Multiple Pulse flash X-ray source which can be used to make high resolution X-ray movies of explosive and ballistic tests. The new source will allow researchers to capitalize on recent advances in very high speed cameras which allow high resolution images with many frames. DTI will extend our world-class pulsed power capabilities to this c ...

  2. Machine Learning Methods to Catalog Sources from Diverse, Widely Distributed Sensors

    SBC: Introspective Systems, LLC            Topic: AF19AT012

    The efficient detection and understanding of clandestine nuclear device testing is critical to the security and credibility of the organizations currently tasked with this important work. At present, the Air Force Tactical Applications Center (AFTAC) and likewise, the Comprehensive Test Ban Treaty Organization (CTBTO) are running methods and algorithms that are out of date. These approaches use a ...

  3. Toolset For Prediction of Carbon-Carbon Aeroshell Properties Based On Constituent Materials And Manufacturing Process Parameters

    SBC: ATA Engineering, Inc.            Topic: AF19AT021

    Carbon-carbon (C-C) composites are used in the fabrication of aeroshells and thermal protection systems (TPS) in hypersonic and atmospheric reentry applications because they maintain their strength at elevated temperatures and have desirable thermal conductivity properties. Although these materials have been used in mission-critical components for decades, the effects of variations in processing m ...

  4. Closed-Loop Feedback Control for Transcranial Direct Current Stimulation, Phase II.

    SBC: Quantum Applied Science And Research, Inc.            Topic: AF17BT002

    Human analysts are presented with ever-increasing amounts of data to process, taxing the limitations of human cognitive capacity. This cognitive overloading leads to increased likelihood of errors and accidents, with costly consequences in mission critical operations. Consequently, there is a rising demand for more efficient processing of increasingly large amounts of intelligence. Transcranial di ...

  5. Metrology of Thin Films on Sapphire Substrate

    SBC: Optowares Incorporated            Topic: DMEA16B001

    There is a lack of a non-destructive metrology tool to measure the thickness of thin films on sapphire substrates due to the transparency of the substrate. Leveraging our extensive experience building sensor systems combined with MIT Lincoln Laboratory’s expertise in theoretical modeling, we will design and build an innovative thin film measurement tool using Raman spectroscopy. Our metrology sy ...

  6. Novel Approaches for Eliminating Bias Drift in Infrared Focal Plane Arrays

    SBC: Copious Imaging LLC            Topic: MDA18T004

    The objective of this proposal is to eliminate reliance on integrated non-uniformity correction hardware in electro-optical/ infrared (EO/IR) sensors to reduce sensor size, weight, power, and cost (SWaP-C), simplify maintenance and integration, and streamline mission continuity of operations. The Digital-pixel Readout Integrated Circuits (DROIC) is an enabling technology for future sensors built f ...

  7. Reconfigurable / cognitive optical communications

    SBC: Vulcan Wireless, Inc.            Topic: AF18AT010

    This proposal will outline a bi-directional software defined Free Space Optics (FSO) laser communications testbed with flexible optical elements and reprogrammable waveform and signal processing elements. Vulcan Wireless Inc. currently manufacturers a 1550nm, eye safe, software defined Laser Communications Testbed MD-LC-1 and will use this as a basis for the Phase 1 effort. We will also be teaming ...

  8. Ultra-fast Multiframe X-ray Imaging System for Explosive Events

    SBC: Radiation Monitoring Devices, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT014

    Measuring the response of explosives to a variety of thermal and mechanical inputs is important to understand and ultimately predict the reaction violence of an explosive in an accident scenario. Technically, there are many challenges to overcome in observing explosives response. For instance, secondary high explosives are heterogeneous and optically opaque and often need to be confined in metal c ...

  9. Lasers Based on Gas or Liquid Filled Hollow-Core Photonic Crystal Fibers

    SBC: SA Photonics, Inc.            Topic: AF18BT015

    We propose a compact, monolithic, power scalable, hollow core fiber-gas laser emitting in the atmospheric transmission region in the mid-IR. The proposed optically pumped fiber-gas laser system is efficient, has a small footprint as well has a broad spectral coverage in the mid-IR. Due to the unique approach employed, the proposed technology allows generation of mid-IR output with varying pulse re ...

  10. Alternative Methods for Creating a Sodium Guidestar

    SBC: Arete Associates            Topic: AF17AT005

    Adaptive Optics allow ground-based astronomical observatories to overcome atmospheric distortion limited observation by using natural and artificial guide stars to measure the distortion. Sodium-layer guide stars provide near all-sky coverage for high resolution astronomy. Over the last 20 years, Optically Pumped Semiconductor Laser (OPSL), also referred to as Vertically Extended Cavity Surface Em ...
