  1. Open Cell Ring Down Spectrometer to Measure Atmospheric Visible and Infrared Ambient Light Extinction

    SBC: Handix Scientific LLC            Topic: N191040

    Directed Energy systems have a variety of applications in the US Navy, but are affected by particles in the atmosphere; therefore, accurate measurements of particle-induced light extinction are critical to the development and deployment of DE systems. However, no commercial instruments exist capable of measuring ambient extinction at DE-relevant wavelengths. Here we propose an accurate, robust sys ...

  2. High-Fidelity Ultrasonic Measurement, Computational Design and Manufacturing of Optimized Carbon/Carbon (C/C) Porous Aeroshell for Hypersonic Transiti

    SBC: HySonic Technologies, LLC            Topic: N191043

    The objective of Phase I is to design, fabricate, characterize, and test ultrasonically absorptive aeroshell materials that successfully damp the second (Mack) mode instability to delay boundary layer transition (BLT) on hypersonic boost-glide weapons during the pull-up and glide phases. HySonic Technologies, LLC will experimentally and numerically assess the complex acoustic absorption coefficien ...

  3. Beyond Line of Sight (BLOS) High Data Rate Communications

    SBC: First RF Corporation            Topic: N171001

    During Phase II, FIRST RF will develop and evaluate concepts enabling beyond line-of-sight (BLOS) communications using field-deployable multi-band arrays. The novel multi-band array topology allows fielding of a compact and lightweight system that operates over L-Band, S-Band, C-Band, and Ku-Band, has a 360 field of regard in azimuth, and can maintain a 20 Mb/s data link over each band at distance ...

  4. Compact Radio Frequency-to-Optical Transmitter for Airborne Military Environments

    SBC: Phase Sensitive Innovations, Inc.            Topic: N191006

    In this SBIR effort we will develop an ultra-compact, high-speed, low RIN and high-power transmitter for high-performance RF photonic link applications based on our cutting-edge lithium niobate on insulator (LNOI) modulator. In phase I, we will design, fabricate and characterize a low Vp, push-and-pull LNOI modulator. We will study the optical couplings at the laser/modulator/fiber interfaces to a ...

  5. Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser Systems (SCUPLS)

    SBC: Aqwest LLC            Topic: N183139

    The USMC is seeking an innovative solution to develop a Scalable Compact Ultra-short Pulse Laser Systems (SCUPLS) weapon system comprising two USPLs: 1) femtosecond (fs) USPL that can initiate the Plasma (igniter laser), and 2) nanosecond USPL to flash heat the ignited plasma to create enhanced non-lethal effects such as flash bang effects, thermal ablation for pain, and delivery of intelligible v ...

  6. Small Arms Long-Range Human Electro-Muscular Incapacitation (HEMI) Munition

    SBC: Harkind Dynamics, LLC            Topic: N183140

    Conducted Energy Weapons, like the TASER X-26, currently have insufficient effective operational range and duration of incapacitation effect to meet Warfighter needs. These limitations unnecessarily put Warfighters in close proximity to potentially dangerous persons and limit the time the Warfighter has to safely neutralize the threat. We are proposing a fuzed, extended range, long-duration, human ...

  7. Advanced PEM Electrocatalysts for Submarine Oxygen Generators

    SBC: TDA Research, Inc.            Topic: N162107

    Polymer electrolyte membrane (PEM) electrolysis is used on-board submarines to generate breathing oxygen for the crew. Expensive noble metals are used as electrocatalysts and these precious metals contribute to approximately 25% of the cost of the electrolysis cell. Greatly reducing or eliminating the amount of noble metal electrocatalysts would significantly reduce the cost of the electrolysis ce ...

  8. Selective Emission of Light Utilizing Functionally-Graded Energetic Materials

    SBC: Special Aerospace Services            Topic: N172115

    Flares are commonly used in the defense industry as light utilizing functionally-graded energetic materials for airborne expendable countermeasure applications. However, current flare production processes are rudimentary because they limit design flexibility and incur significant start up and maintenance costs due to low annual production volume. Additive Manufacturing (AM) is a superior alternati ...

  9. Submarine Shipboard Power Supply Bridge

    SBC: P C KRAUSE AND ASSOCIATES INC            Topic: N171075

    The objective of this effort is to construct and test a 40 kW UPS with at least 100ms of holdup time, integrated into a standard 19 inch rack mount enclosure with 4U (7 inch) height, and designed to meet electrical and mechanical/shock specifications required for naval shipboard application. Traditional UPS applications are typically not optimized for weight and volume, and utilize bulky lead-acid ...

  10. Advanced Direct Digital Exciter for Radar (ADDER)

    SBC: COLORADO ENGINEERING INC.            Topic: N171051

    In the Phase II effort, CEI will develop an Advanced Direct Digital Exciter for Radar (ADDER) targeted for the AN/SPS 49A(V) (SPS-49) search radar as part of the SPS-49 technical refresh with relevance to other military and commercial applications (e.g. exciter, Software Defined Radio (SDR)). ADDER will directly replace the multi-step Intermediate Frequency (IF) analog conversion with direct-digit ...
