  1. Fiber Optic Amplifier Pump Combiners with Signal Feed Throughput

    SBC: SUB-MICRON ENGINEERING CORP            Topic: AF131011

    ABSTRACT: For this SBIR topic, we have proposed a novel high-power optical fiber pump combiner design that addresses the specific challenges associated with counter-pumping large-mode-area (LMA) double-clad gain fibers. Based on modeling and design optimization, we will fabricate kilowatt capable power combiner prototypes for pump coupling to double-clad Yb-doped polarization-maintaining (PM) fi ...

  2. Engineering Software for the Evaluation of Unsteady Loading on Store Trajectories

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131003

    ABSTRACT: We propose to develop and demonstrate a rapid store trajectory analysis tool that uses pre-computed, highly-resolved Detached Eddy Simulation (DES) Computational Fluid Dynamics (CFD) data which has been compressed and stored in an easily reusable and distributable format. The tool will rapidly determine store+bay configurations that display large sensitivity to flow unsteadiness. The te ...

  3. Absolute Reference Correlation SOLD (ARCSOLD)

    SBC: Q-Track Corporation            Topic: AF131063

    ABSTRACT: Q-Track proposes to develop and demonstrate feasibility of a system for absolute localization in GPS-denied environments. A Signals-of-Opportunity Location Device ("SOLD"), previously demonstrated to yield 1m repeatable location indoors, provides the desired"absolute location reference. Q-Track"s proposed SOLD sensor a compact, lightweight tag ultimately costing about $50 in volume al ...

  4. Advanced Waveform Design and Signal Processing

    SBC: EAST WEST ENTERPRISES, INC.            Topic: A13055

    A novel signal/waveform model and signal processing algorithm suite that enhances radar systems performance, in the presence of noise and high clutter environments, and its associated discrimination capabilities is proposed. The algorithm allows for extraction of target information in range, azimuth and elevation angles while achieving very fine resolution and high accuracy. Target information at ...

  5. Novel Standoff Detection of Material Damage Precursors for Structural Health Monitoring and Prediction

    SBC: PNTS INCORPORATED            Topic: A13016

    Because of the overwhelming migration to composites, particularly exotic thermoset materials from the bismaleimide (BMI) family, the PNTS team is focusing its work on this topic on composite structures. The team's high level approach will be to demonstrate an innovative and practical design using dielectric spectroscopy at millimeter wave through terahertz frequencies that will provide compos ...

  6. Packaging High Power Photodetectors for 100 MHz to 100 GHz RF Photonic Applications

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: AF131142

    ABSTRACT: In this SBIR effort we will develop a packaging process and demonstrate (Phase I) a prototype of high power Photodiode (PD) that has a normal incident, pigtailed fiber input and a coaxial RF output that operates from DC to>60GHz. We will apply and extend (Phase II) the aforementioned packaging process to single PD, balanced PD and array of PDs that work from DC through entire W-band. De ...

  7. Multiband Metasurface for Reduced Antenna Footprint and Jamming Mitigation

    SBC: Kord Technologies, Inc.            Topic: AF131066

    ABSTRACT: The Air Force has identified the need to improve satellite communications by increasing bandwidth, yet seeks to accomplish this without increasing the antenna payload footprint and without introducing vulnerability to transmission interference or jamming. One mature and popular technology explored over the past several decades is a class of engineered materials known as frequency selec ...

  10. Electro-Optically Guided Radar Imaging

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: A13040

    Millimeter-wave RADAR imaging holds significant promise for many applications from rotorcraft DVE mitigation to standoff security screening. A key challenge of this imaging modality, however, has been the implementation of an effective method for creating an image without relying on either mechanical scanning or expensive, high SWAP phased array techniques. Herein, we present a concept for creat ...
