  1. High Bandwidth Optoelectronic Data Interfaces for Satellites

    SBC: ALPHION CORP.            Topic: AF04043

    This SBIR Phase I project proposes the feasibility study of integrated all-optical 2R regeneration and 3R optical signal regeneration devices for use as high-speed interfaces in satellite applications (solicitation AF04-043). Currently available products achieve regeneration of signals by resorting to Optical to Electrical and then Electrical to optical conversion (OEO), which results in costly, ...

  2. Bio-Inspired Delayed Stall Fan/Compressor for Increased Performance

    SBC: Continuum Dynamics Inc            Topic: AF04188

    Current turbomachinery designs have been optimized, for the most part, using "average flow" design concepts and tools. Future advances in engine performance, especially with regard to increasing per stage pressure ratio, stall margins, and reduced sensitivity to inlet distortion in fans/compressors, must come from innovative technologies which move beyond the current "steady flow" design space. ...

  5. Efficient High Power Amplification Technology for Munitions

    SBC: F&H APPLIED SCIENCE ASSOC., INC.            Topic: AF04169

    Recent advent, and a significant progress made in the wide band gap semiconductor technology offer today a promise for a superior power amplifier. More specifically, emerging Gallium Nitrate (GaN) HEMT devices are shown to operate in extreme temperatures (~600C), exhibiting high breakdown voltages (~100V) and high current densities (~1.5A/mm). In order to meet these challenging technical requireme ...

  6. CFD Design Tool for Fuel Injectors in Turbine Engines

    SBC: Flow Parametrics, LLC            Topic: AF04293

    The objectives of the proposed effort are to demonstrate the use of computational fluid dynamics (CFD) as a design tool for reducing engine development time and cost, to reduce fuel nozzle-combustor test requirements, and to demonstrate the capability of CFD to accelerate the incorporation of promising, actively controlled fuel nozzles and combustors into aircraft engines. These overall objectives ...

  7. Monolithic Microwave Integrated Circuit (MMIC) Beamforming Weights

    SBC: GRAY ROCK TECHNOLOGY GROUP            Topic: AF04215

    Electronically Steered Arrays have become important components of many military and commercial systems. The ability to steer the null of the antenna as well as the main beam is important in the presence of jamming signals, or interference from other stations. This proposal presents a MMIC based solution for the beamforming weights of a 43.5-45.5 GHz system that is highly accurate, repeatable, an ...

  8. Megawatt Digital Generator Control Unit (MDGCU) for Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) Applications

    SBC: Innovative Power Solutions, LLC            Topic: AF04188

    Directed Energy Weapon (DEW) laser or microwave-based systems are being developed for both ground and airborne applications. These applications require significant amount of power, which ranges from several hundred kilowatts to Megawatts. The laser DEW requires that the full, tightly regulated, power is available intermittently, typically 5 seconds on followed by 10 seconds off. The control of a g ...

  10. Ultra-High Speed Analog Lightwave Components For Ladar Scene Projection

    SBC: Multiplex Inc.            Topic: AF04161

    Compact arrays of ultra-high-speed analog laser sources or lasers integrated with modulators are needed for LADAR sensors and scene generation. Multiplex, UCLA and UCSD propose a novel Monolithic Injection-Locked Analog Transmitter Array (MILATA) for wide frequency range (>2GHz) operation with greater than 60 dB optical extinction ratio. MILATA is a versatile technology platform that is built on o ...
